comment Avoiding a “ding-dong” when lead belaying in the gym?
This seems to me the most obvious answer. Every gym I've climbed in (admittedly not very many though) has offered floor anchors so that climbing partners with imbalanced weights can still climb safely. I would definitely inquire as to whether they can be installed.

comment Outdoor activities for shoulder season
Seems to me you can do many of the same activities, you might just get a bit wet from rain.

comment What to look for in hiking shoes?
This is very close to being a shopping question and an open-ended poll question, and thus off-topic. Could you edit your question so it's not asking "what are good" and "what do you use", but instead more along the lines of "what makes a good hiking shoe"? In its present state I believe this question to be off-topic, but it could easily be fixed. If fixed I'll reverse my downvote and cancel my close vote.

comment Should I wear a fleece while cross country skiing?
OP did ask if they should wear a fleece while skiing, not whether they should carry a fleece.

comment How do “Dock leaves” work to reduce itching from stinging nettles?
Just because something is on-topic and even answered on another SE site does not preclude users from asking a similar question on this SE site. See this somewhat relevant SE blog post. An individual user cross-posting identical questions is strongly discouraged, but similar questions which appear naturally on multiple sites are not a problem.

Good call on the dead link; I was able to find an older copy of that page on archive.org and put that link in.

comment How to handle grizzly bear encounters
No problem @ryan. They did both show up under the bears tag. You should see a button that says "this answered my question" which will help point future visitors to those other questions.

comment How can I know if a rope is certified? I found a hidden tag
@user56833 do you know who purchased it? If so, can they find any kind of purchase record? Do you have any sort of log that goes with ropes you use? It sounds like your organization would benefit from more detailed note keeping on rope usage. Each rope should have an accompanying log for major falls, inspection results, purchasing info, etc.
