HA HA!!! proof the world really is flat! knew it.

Yes, one of many topics that would have been discussed in the War Room.


Actually I think this was how Niagra falls was discovered.

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 a dead issue.

The other two forums I'm on have their version of a "War Room" (BARF and F800Forum) and it seems to be just fine.

Isn't it common to have such a thing on moto forums?

I checked out atleast the F800 one and it seemed pretty tame compared to the tail end of our war room here. Reviewing some of the threads it appeared some users got a bit out of control.
 
Of all the various forums i've been a part of, none ever had anything like a war room. Not sure why it is such a popular thing for motorcycle forums.
 
Anyways we're way off topic, if some one wants to create a thread discussing the concept of a war room you're welcome to, but theres no plans to have one in the new forum.

I get my "War Room" giggles primarily on the "Kitchen Sink" section on the BARF website.

Some funny stuff there and, at times, gets a bit heated.

Maybe they can have their War Room if they change name. Suggestions:

BS
In the Gutter
Pub Talk

or ...

It is possible that the name War Room sort of implies a more negative attitude. Maybe something that was a bit more loose and less threatening would keep things a bit more in check and attract less trolling.

I've been told by our tech team we need a group of users to do some beta testing of our new forum software. If you are interested in testing it out and offering feedback send me a message and I'll get you in.
 
You must have a mymoto account to access the new forum.

although i don't care either way whether there's a war room or not, i don't get it either because i come to a motorcycle forum mainly to talk about motorcycle. if i want to talk about politics, religion, etc., i would rather do it at those types of forums and yes, there's a ton of those very specific forums available on the net too.

i don't think i've ever post anything in the war room when it was around but it won't bother me if it's brought back. i'm still in charge and in control of my choice to participate or not. like a radio or a tv, if you don't like it, change the channel or turn it off. you are not force to engage just because it's available.

Alright, forum update. Dates are being set to make the new forum a reality. The aim is for late January.
 
We had some one leave a bit ago so we've been sorting out a few of the interface issues that were left over.
 
So far things are being adjusted and looking good.
 
Make sure you're signed up for a mymoto account to make the transition smooth. smile
