I'd like to be able to vote for more than one thing when a vote comes up.

When setting one up there is the "Poll Options" section after you enter the possible responses and the first field is "Maximum votes per user:" which defaults to one. So the functionality exists in the forum software, its just not used very often (if at all).
Image hosting would be nice. It's a ballache having to uplaod pics elsewhere and then link to.
I like the current mix. Some threads have been a real help in times of need.
The power of UKB, it's enormous. It dictates my entire existence.
My tuppence - which I've been thinking about for a while.... and possibly looking at a bigger picture for the UKB future..3-4 years ago, when I first started posting my dribble on this wonderful site - it was the best/most easy/dominant/there form of social media for climbing/bouldering chat/hookups/beta etc... Now, I know a load of folk from here on twitter and on faceache.. so I find that when arranging trips to the crag or piss ups etc.. then twitter is used - and to catch up with gossip - news, first ascent, new videos etc.. then faceache is often the first place I see/find out about things. So UKB's role within my climbing life has shifted a little. Twitter and faceache (which I hate, but abide btw..) are no replacement - but some of what I did/could do on UKB is now carried out on there... so I use UKB less...Now the twitter side of things (meet ups - banter etc.. whats the weather like in sheff questiosn) does not detract from UKB usage much - but the snippets of news etc.. on FB does... So I think that UKB may need to catch up a little and work on some sort of FB/Twitter integration. Quite how you do that I dont know - and I would loathe/hate it to move lock stock to FB (I dont think it could/would) but some sort of canny linkage thing to drive traffic back to this site from FB so UKB becomes more of a hub (again).
Good topic! According to Google Analytics, UKB's "unique visitor" numbers are flattish 2012 vs 2011, having risen sharply 2011 vs 2010. And average time spent on the site has declined slightly. That may reflect the Twitter/ FB impact you describe. Obviously there are "solutions" like a more active UKB presence on FB and Twitter , with some underlying aim like trying to point people back to threads on the forum. But is that really useful to anyone or would it just be adding yet more link-spam to the internet? It seems like UKB has (hopefully not: had) some genuine identity as a community. Shouldn't it live or die on that basis alone?
Why do you need to do this? Well, this AM - in my FB time line, is a video of Ned flashing requiem for a dream, taken by a regular UKB'er and been posted up on vimeo - thats also been tagged/flagged by another regular UKB lurker - and liked by another two UKB very regular users.. Its not on UKB first...
