after all the revision and censoring and stuff who enjoys the new boards more? or do they find the old school ones better? I'm curious just because I think the mods still do a good job but NSMB has lost its charm. Its a little too cut and dry now. And dont say if you dont like it leave, thats not what this is about. Im wondering if you like the boards now with wayyy more of a tight grip on what they let go than the old ones, and if you actually in the end find it any more useful? Or is it just more boring and just as or less helpful. I found I could get just the same help from the old school boards minus all the rules and stuff. but thats just ym 2 cents. im not leavin anytime soon. im a loser. what else would i do? oh yah, ride my bike hehehe

I find the censoring kind of weird...like, why not just delete the post and send the user a warning? something got censored today that I had probs figuring out why, but heck that's just me :D

Oh yeah and sorry to say it but I miss Shin and Travis..oh well.

I wish there was a poll option to vote for pinkbike which is better than either option.

hahaha - I know. Believe me, we have been trying to nuke everything meaningless/inappropriate but it is hard to keep with on a daily basis.

One of our best tools is the 'REPORT THIS POST' option that any registered users may use to inform us of inappropriate threads/posts. There are 5-6 of you (not going to mention any names) using this option regularly; playing the role of pseudo-moderator - keep it up, it is working great and we really appreciate the help.

If any of you see a post/thread that you feel is inappropriate, it probably is - click the REPORT THIS POST button and voila! all the mods are emailed and we can wipe/investigate the thread/post.

cheers.

I disagree. Perhaps the NBR forum is but I have found a lot of useful info on the other pages.

The NBR forum was set up so the people who wanted to socialize and talk about not biking related things would have a venue for it.

In terms of an internet community NSMB is pretty darn good. There are a lot of people who spend a lot of time here and I like wacky sense of humour I find in some of the posts on NBR.

Every community needs rules to keep it together though and I don't think the NSMB rules are too harsh at all.

We need to treat each other with respect otherwise the flames will burn high as people hide behind their computers. People will post things that they would never say face to face. Why can't people just post as if they were talking to each other in a living room at home or something?

Since this BB is open to people of all ages there are laws about what kind of material can be posted. This includes profanity and if people think they need to use profanity to make a point then perhaps they need to expand their vocabulary a little.

So was the old way more fun? In some ways yes. But the old BB died because it was not viable.

So IMHO the new board is better because it is sustainable, it's informative, it's entertaining and it's a cool place to hang out. On top of that I have met some pretty cool people because of NSMB and it gets me out riding more.

I think this is really dissapointing. The old board fell apart because users could not be responsible enough to show a little respect for their peers and contribute in ways that were actually helpful.

NSMB responded to numerous complaints about the deterioration of the board, and as an end result, shut it down.

Now, much time has been invested in creating a format that allows the users to have a huge effect on the quality of the board and the content that it has. We even went so far as to open a new NBR forum, the source of the original problem. Why? Because you asked for it.

Cam's "Jump on the Bandwagon" thread is predictable as hell. It is already unfolding..the same half dozen or so guys pipe up about how much they can't stand certain aspects and how it was better before. It is the same people EVERY time a complaint is raised, there are leaders and there are the few who feel the need to jump in and tag along. Fair enough, I could care less who chimes in and how they choose to do so. Of course you have a right to complain.

You also have a right to leave. Cam, you indicate that it isn't about "if you don't like it, leave". Well, it is. If you find the basic requirements to act in a manner that resembles some level of maturity too difficult and find the rules and expectations frustrating, just go.

NSMB hosts great bulletin boards. We do a top notch job of catering to our users. We VOLUNTEER, no money involved, just countless hours in front of the computer when we are stuck at our real jobs and when we can't ride, all to keep the site on top of the others.

There are thousands of members on nsmb. Under 20 users continually complain about the new format. That says something about the site, and those that are unhappy with it.

There are a ton of mtb sites with bulletin boards. Maybe some of them are more lenient, and maybe that would make them a more suitable place for the ones that are unhappy here.

Nobody requires you to be here. Continual complaints and efforts to rally up the troops from the same people. Yet, they are all still here. Kinda like a love/hate thing going on. If you really don't like it, do something about it and just go somewhere else, its simple.

By doing so, those that are here out of a love for bikes and riding and for meeting people and yapping about bikes, and to learn about the sport can enjoy the board, and not have to read your attempts (Not YOU Cam, I am taking the complainers as a whole here) to bring it down.

Cheers!

Actually I think the old bb fell apart because the NBR forum wasn't moderated. Meh.

I think Cam is merely commenting on the fact that the new bb is different, I don't see that he's complaining about it - like you say, if he doesn't like it, he can leave (like anyone else).

There were some absolutely hilarious threads on that old bb, for sure. OMG I used to laugh SO hard I was afraid of waking up my kids :lol:

Adam's right, it's more that we're just reminiscing :)

I was not directing my response to Cam. I was directing it at the people who remain unhappy with things here and who continue to slag it.

The mis-understanding I see is people mistaking basic guidelines and expectations as us being hard-asses. Only a select few actually complain about this, and hundreds take the time to report threads that compromise the expectations on the board. So we act on those reports, and then it gets turned around in posts claiming that things are not as fun anymore, that things are censored and too tight.

Since when is not accepting people being assholes a bad thing?

hahaha okay there corey. maybe im too predicatable for you to actually read what im saying. im asking what peoples thoughts are. i didnt ask for yours. you're a mod, your opinion is obvious. you run the rules, if anything id call you predictable. im asking THE MEMBERS what they think of the improvments and if they enjoy their posts being monkeyed with. im not saying nsmb is gay im not saying it kicks ass. everything has its faults and i dont fall short of that about myself. im posting this for ppl to 1) reminsec about the GOOD OLD DAYS 2) think about improvements 3) voice their opinions on moderation. if anything im doing you a favour. indirect assessment.

dont "not direct things at me" when in your 2nd paragraph you blatantly are. i never wrote anything here saying you guys sucked or werent doing what you said you would. im leaving it up to people to assess your effectiveness in censoring and such. now if you dont like people asking questions like that, maybe moderating isnt your thing. because there will always be questions about the routine of things.

thanks for the reply though corey, its nice to hear some lingo from the other side of the fence (aka. moderating). by the way, all you mods are cool guys...i dunno why you seem to take this so personally :???: i never made fun of any of you. jeez

The old boards definitely had some good burns goin on.

Censorship really isn't that bad. When I see "edited by a mod" it kinda annoys me. Everyone here is over 13, I don't think it really matters what you read. If it's something that bad, send em a warning, but by editing it out, while the other posts all talk about it, gets kinda frustrating.

Cam, the mods have better things to do than "monkey" with peoples posts.

But if people don't follow the rules there are only a few options:

1) You can ignore it (we know where that goes)

2) You can delete the post... losing any value the post might have

3) You can modify the post...leaving the poster's comments and contributions pretty much intact.

In addition you can issue a warning to the poster and if they don't listen you can ban them.

I bet the mods would all be happy to never have to warn,delete, modify and ban. There is a lot of work to keep this place running and moding the BB takes a lot of time away from other things like updating products, adding links, tweaking the code to make things run smoother. Just to name a few.. there are a lot more things that go on here.

Anyway... I still think NSMB is the best MTB site on the net and I am really happy that there is so much passion here. This place rocks!

The thing I have is that you can't type C*ckpit without the script censoring it, and I think don't a bar/stem combo is a dirty thing.

seems to me like the new board is full of a bunch of nerds. back in the day i used to have a chuckle over every single post. now i kind of want to shoot myself after a thread gets turned into a "im more punk than you" or "qwned qwned qwned qwned" type thing after about 10 posts. old board was 10 times more fun and always will be.

i wish FJ would still post as much as he did... he cracked me up.

Yo dudes, in a year from now you'll be looking back at the funny things that have happened on the "new" board, just like you're doing now with what was on the "old" board. Personally, I like the "new" board much much better. I agree that there was some funny stuff on the old board but overall, the cleaner smarter content of the new board is much more appealing. Some of the old stuff just got totally out of hand and stupid, I lost total respect for some people.
