At the beginning of the rope article, we are told that rope is a 'linear collection of yarns'; the yarn article tells us that yarn is a 'continuous length of interlocking fibers', and the article for fibers tells us that Fiber is a rope. Without outside knowledge we can't actually find out what any of them are. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:06, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
Punitive uses of Rope
I don't think this section is appropriate for this article. There are no other sections of this article devoted to other uses of rope, so why should there be a section on punitive uses? There are too many specific uses of rope to discuss each in this detail. I preserved a link to flogging and added some material from here to that article. --John.james 22:30, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
The section on "How to handle rope" was originally written by User:18.104.22.168. It was merged into Rope from How to handle rope by Evil saltine. Just to let you know. -- Oliver P. 06:51, 8 Oct 2003 (UTC)
This article is correct as far as it goes, but would be better titled by the more inclusive term cordage, which includes similar stranded objects such as twine, string, and thread. Or, perhaps, another article titled cordage should be produced. Too Old 00:23, 2005 Feb 12 (UTC)
A hawser is a rope used for nautical purposes, specifically for mooring lines, regardless of thickness.
I came here hoping to find a lead on what strength ratings are used to grade ropes - anyone got some material on that they could add? User:Adhib
- I'm planning to bring this article up to FA or at least GA status, and the materials I have accumulated so far include some information on that. Check back in the next few weeks. Mstroeck 16:49, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
Some of the work in the "History" section seems to have been plagiarized; mainly the middle ages portion. The work in the wikipedia article is higly reminiscent to the work found on this website www.rope-maker.com(see third paragraph), which is well referenced by the way while the work here isn't. — Dorvaq (talk) 14:19, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
Dennis the Menace
Someone keeps posting some trash information about the Dennis the Menace 1993 movie. Could this user be banned? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Razwww (talk • contribs) 10:35, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
Some topics that might be worth including:
- Effects of moisture, sunlight, and abrasion on aging of different rope materials.
- How construction type affects coiling, alternatives to coiling for non-laid constructions.
- Safety factors in use.
- Effects of bending radius on strength.
- Effects of rope materials on knot holding.
- Factors besides tensile strength that affect suitability for various applications. (This may be a new topic.)
I agree. I've been searching for "climbing ropes" but nothing came out. I would like to insert the informations listed below, as I consider them vital for the article. I also think this article should expand its definition and technical properties for climbing ropes as well. If not on this particular section, open/ start a new one. Things like: Type: single, half or twin (in other words) the usage of a rope during an ascent could be classified as single/ half/ twin. Single Rope: for use singly as a link in the safety chain Half Rope: for use with another rope of the same type in a half rope system. Half rope should never be used alone. Twin Rope for use in pair or parallel withing a twin system. Twin ropes should never be used alone.
The UUIA Falls: how many times a climbing rope can take a fall on a 90 degree edge before failing. Impact Force of a climbing rope: what is load impact before the rope snaps. Static Elongation: how much a climbing rope stretches when an object (a climber) is hanging from it mid-air. Dynamic Elongation: how much a climbing rope stretches when an obect (a climber) falls. Sheaths Slippage: how much movement there is between the inner core of the rope and its outer sheets. Weight (gr/m): based of thickness of the rope, how much it weights per meter/ or feet. Certified UIAA Certified CE Those are only few points I think are important to incorporate into "climbing ropes." I will do more research and contact the companies in the business for more insights on climbing ropes. --JDMIZED (talk) 18:07, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

THe history section stops too early. I came here looking for information on the later history. When did synthetic fibers start being used? When was kermantle rope invented? How did it develop and for what uses? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30A:C08C:A6F0:21C:B3FF:FEC3:2572 (talk) 20:19, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Number 18 under the 'References' section with the name 'Bairstow "Rope & Fiber Comparison Guide' links to a blank page. Change to the following rope and fibre comparison table - https://www.buyrope.co.uk/rope-comparison-guide.pdf Summertime997 (talk) 11:20, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
