At least with the Font system there ARE lower grades, with the V system you get down to V0 (which apparently can be anything from about 4 to 6A) and that's it.
On another point , Font vs V, there ARE grades below V0, they are called UK tech grades and if you are really desperate there are U grades. Having a grading system that is meaningless (like sub 6 in font) is helping no-one.
To be honest Steve I think you're the only person involved with guides who has much of an idea what a font 4 should feel like.
I'd put money on even you being able to find one of the juggier orange elephant 3c's a lot easier than the polished, once juggy, Bas Cuvier 2a's.

Been logging some of the stuff I did in the last week and had some comments:1] The 8 billion different "attributes" for each problem really need to be further down the page, certainly below the grade vote breakdown. They're handy if you're searching for types of problem, building a ticklist etc, but of secondary importance once you're on the page - hopefully there'll generally be pics or video by then for most stuff.
2] The big issue as i see it is that the site relies on folk registering their ascents to improve as a resource, but it's not really happening at the moment - for example the nose and breakfast have got 5 ascents each, seems unlikely that more of the sites users have not done these - so why aren't the ascents on there? I think it's that people aren't 'rewarded' as such for registering their ascents - the obvious way would be to allow users to see what they've done via their profile something like on bleau.info (HALAM, or HALA JB), sounds petty, but I like looking at what I've done, and I guess others may too?
3] I changed the description for Neil's/Nigel's Roof as what was there seemed very confusing compared to the guide (but left the name - would've changed it but thought I should have confirmation of which is correct first). Also changed "low start" to "sit start" in the Full Power description after Andy's comments on my beta thread. Finally The Celtic Cross (guide name) is on as Tricky Arete - again didn't want to change it without more knowledge (Andy Popp?)

do pics that are uploaded need to be a certain size???
My personal reason for not logging problems on there, despite being involved in its initial development, is that I think, having been a fairly vocal critic of people publicising what they do on 8a.nu, it may be hypocritical for me to then stick everything on PB.info.
