I registered for the new forum but when I clicked on the forum button, it sent me back here. I take it that this happened because it is not ready yet? (I know my registration worked b/c when I attempted to re-register, I was told that my username was taken.)

Yes, thats because theres no new forum yet.  smilewinkgrin
 
 
We're still fixing some bugs and getting features dialed in. Just wanted to get you guys all prepared so theres no confusion when it does go up. When ever that may be.

That's what I like, an optomist.
You KNOW there will be confusion, despite your best efforts.
No reason to stop trying though !!! smilewinkgrin

Things are getting closer to done with the new forum. Tech guys are itching to move on to a new project so it could be done soon.

Be sure to get your self registered with MCUSA MyMoto to ensure an easy transition to the new forum.

They're currently finishing a side project related to the forum but at this point since the bulk of it has been finished they've left it with one or two guys and they keep pulling them off for other projects.

It's looking closer to being finished in the next month or two I hope.

An update on the forum.
 
We're moving in to the next stage of testing, having some external users offering feedback. At the moment this has been extended to moderators.
 
At the moment the primary issues we're addressing are User Interface things, button placements and message boxes. Making things more user friendly while also catering to the more advanced forum users.

This was a good chance to test my log-in on the MC-USA site. Worked like a charm, so i assume I'm OK to go when the change over takes place.

I know you didn't ask for suggestions, but I think you should consider bringing back the "War Room", with the following changes:

1. Make it a subscription forum only with no public access or viewing; so if you didn't want to see it - you wouldn't have to;

2. Make it available only after a member has a minimum number of posts, say 100; so as to keep out the spammers and trolls;

3. Make the subscription subject to the Mods' approval.


I miss it Sooooooo much!

Because there are a LOT of other ones where heated debates are welcomed; some of them even motorcycle related.
I think there is a place for both kinds of forums.
I LIKE this one because those things are absent.  I want it to STAY that way.
Why can't you seem to let it go ??

Did you bother to read my post? Did you not see where I suggested:

"Make it a subscription forum only with no public access or viewing; so if you didn't want to see it - you wouldn't have to";

Can you not read? What part of that did you not understand? For you it could stay just as it is now. For those of use who like to stretch our brains and perspectives with our friends and those with common interests, we could do so.

Everyone wins.

Even you.

I like your idea Trav, but I think there should be at least a couple of openly visible forums, so people get a feel for what the posters are like.

Maybe have the forum list in public view, but only the general board and maybe the introduction board publicly visible?

Or really whichever board is least likely to have arguments, thus we attract less cretins maybe?

Actually, I suppose I wasn't really clear. My proposal was that only the War Room become subscription only. Everything else would remain exactly as it is. And by making the War Room not available to member subscriptions until the member had 100 posts, that would give the member the chance to get to know everyone under calmer circumstances, before immersing themselves in controversial topics and opinions.

Can't see how it's not a "win-win " for everyone. Even ER2.

It's not a 'win-win' for MC-USA. To them it's just an invitation for some member of the Aryan Brotherhood to get on here and post his top 10 reasons why this or that group should be incinerated,,, which leads to a bunch of crap,,, and ends up with some idiot ""Reporter"" at USA Today doing a story about what a bunch of racist A-holes motorcyclists are. ""As proof of the overt evil, it was stated on Motorcycle-USA.com that kittens are delicious,,, etc.etc.etc.".  From the P.O.V. of the website owners it's all downside and no upside.

Spanky was the War room moderator. Ask him if he wants the job back. devil

It was just an idea. I still remember some of the discussions we had in there and how much fun I had. I'd still like to see it brought back. But it's not my decision.

We could have a successful War Room if everbody would obey the "Strangelove" prime directive.

Human beings are weak.....and curious.
 
Some won't be able to resist getting on a soapbox and "preaching" their particular biases.
Others won't be able to resist the temptation to see what is going on in there.

War room is dead, it was removed for a reason. I can only assume what that was. In some cases I can argue for things but I just don't see the point in bringing that back.
