Edit or Delete BPs — see details about ticks

I love the Tension board but the app could be improved. Here are my recommendations:

1) Users should be able to edit or delete BPs if they have < 3 ascents. I know I personally have accidentally hit the next button before finalizing a BP resulting in a weird contribution to the database.

2) I like how you can see how many ascents a BP has seen. However, it would be cool if you could see who ticked the BP, when, how many tries it took, and what they graded it (both difficulty and quality). This data is already collected when a user ticks the problem so why not make it public?

3) Search by name not just alphabetical. There are a lot of users so it would be convenient to be able to search for them alphabetically when selecting BPs.

Overall it’s a great app/board, but a couple minor improvements could make it exceptional.

Newest Update

Removal of the alphanumeric grid: While it looks cleaner, and perhaps incentivizes people to opt for this additional kit, it makes it very hard to visualize your climb for those of us that don’t have it.

Previous comment also discussed inability to delete climbs set. I think if you set a climb, especially with sub 3 ascents, you should be able to delete it. It ends up lowering the overall quality of climbs when setters need to add duplicates with one minor adjustment.
