Well, a couple things.
One, we’re trying to steer clear of the whole..
“this sucks” with no reason as to why it does, kinda comments.
And…in the racing section,
well…if you come here you know how the racing section got over the last couple years. Seems there was an underlying current of some people with voices that wanted to be heard and weren’t being listened to and it lead to some to put it lightly, strained topics.
We just wanna try to keep things more together.
Something sucks, say why and what you could do to change it.
Got a topic about something important, we’re just trying to stay on it.
Feel free to start all the new topics you want!
Also keeps those crazy 9 page threads from coming about.
Remember the site will be completely redone by the time the Dew Tour starts, and this will all be an archive.
Here’s to the future BMXahs.January 30, 2008 at 11:07 pm #56239rodneyMember

Ok. my 2cents, the forum is a place to “discuss things in the open”, and if the dialoque moves to another subject that is linked to the topic at hand, why stay on topic, because the new discussion may bring about change, where as the opening topic may not be fixed. What I’m saying is, limiting the items discussed may mean you will hinder progress, and I thought this site was about progression of BMX in NJ
I agree if you are going to post an item about someone or something, you should back your statement up. But to limit the content, I think will hinder progress.January 31, 2008 at 12:52 am #56248bmiddaughMember
Bill, what we’re hoping to do is exactly what you just said.
and if the dialoque moves to another subject that is linked to the topic at hand, why stay on topic, because the new discussion may bring about change,
By sorta nudging people to start a whole new topic, when the conversation starts to wander to a new place, it’ll make it easier to bring about a change..
Sorta like when Dan posted about HC and the meeting. I locked the thread.
Then Clint posted a new topic that he wanted to post in the HC thread, that would have gotten lost in HC but instead opened a new intelligent discussion about the merits of quarry dust…
I’m hoping that sorta clarifies things, I’m just as quilty as anyone else.
Oh, to put it more plainly, no one is getting suspended or banned for something as stupid as going off topic. But any of us may at some point get the nudge in a “make a new topic” direction.
We’re trying to actually encourage more discussions.January 31, 2008 at 1:03 am #56249
I understand, I also think it discourages them tooJanuary 31, 2008 at 1:15 am #56251s4lnjMember
what’s up with the pro/am section?January 31, 2008 at 1:25 am #56252
No new news, an nothing to report, so they locked it i guess, when they have something, which I’m sure they will, it will be backJanuary 31, 2008 at 1:48 am #56253tpbmxtdMember
