I was just thinking about the rankings you get depending on the number of posts that you've made and thought that maybe flash guru and redpoint maniac should be switched around. (I'm sure that some boulderers want boulderer moved up as well)

To my understanding Flash means leading a route with no falls or rests on the rope without having done it before. Redpointing a route means leading a route clean, but you could have already tried it before.

I checked in the glossary and the Flash entry didn't mention anything about leading whereas the redpoint entry did. So does flash indicate leading or not? And if so, shouldn't it change places with redpoint maniac.

And as for onsite stud(ette), I'm not sure if it's misplaced or just a bad pun on being on this site so much

No a flash can be a top rope, but only if that is the way it is inteded to be climbed...ie if it is a route which can not be climbed in any other fashion without drill bolts.

This would imply that the forum rankings had some sort of value other than that of just being fun. Which they don't. So there's not really a need to change anything

Feel free to debate though.

Ahh, but they somehow seem to be in an order. ie. belayer < guide
or am I just seeing things where there aren't any?...

Well, technically Boulderer should be at the top of the list. So I guess it is a little out of order.
