Easy guys,

Basically, me being on TF 24/7, I have noticed there are alot less active members since the upgrade.

There used to be well over 100+ active members, now it hardly ever reaches 100. Just a shit load of Bots.

Is it just me? ..

No-one on tf actually rides!

Lies! Rode Blackburn 12-3 today, then rode Lee Mill's pump track and natural sections from 3-6. Just another reason 24s (and 26s, just for Ali's sake :rolleyes:) are awesome - street, natural and even some fun jumping all on the same day on the same bike :)

Y'know, your on 5 circles now and on your old account you were on 5. You should be a senior member

Skoze for SM.

to be honest though, are you really that bothered? it's still going strong, just people are getting lives away from their computers as the weather gets better.

And the "we need x member back" argument - that list would be MASSIVE!

Edit: No that's not right

I think the "Senior member" section is a major flaw in this forum.

Why purposely make a section which only members deemed special enough can be involved in?

Seems like saying 'you lot are just plebs and are not good enough to read what we're talking about.'

I can understand some of the reason behind it like very young kids pestering their 'Heros' but if normal members could at least read the section if not post in it then it would remove another barrier from trials in general.

Whats the big secret?

It's all a bit gay to be honest.

On the original topic I don't think it's numbers of visitors that is letting it down, it's mostly the inane drivel that is being written constantly, the NMC section is way more interesting at the mo even chit chat has gotten boring.

Senior members chat is supposedly to nominate other people as SM etc. The chances are we aren't really missing out, well apart from the matrix theme but the rest is most probably them talking about anal and laughing at new members lack of English comprehension.

It's more of a place for ideas and things to be tossed about/to negotiate the Tartybikes SM discount each year rather than much of a discussion forum. There's only really ever the odd post in there every few days when someone updates the porn thread, otherwise it's just a monthly update on Pete Wright's latest attempts at a new account

That's it. OTN is similar, it's just full of people who have kids, big SUV's and make insane things like rim knurling machines in the basements of their houses which now cost 1 dollar and have messed up the economy of the entire world. Don't know where I'm heading with this.

SM Chat is a 'barrier' in trials? Haha, what? SM chat's sweet because it's nice to have something on here where people can talk about more serious stuff without having certain spackers messing everything up. It was initially started to get ideas on how to run the forum better, and that's still primarily the reason it's there. Topics in the main forum about how the forum runs just don't really work because most people don't appear to be capable of coherent thought, so it definitely helps out in terms of getting things done on here.

The porn, shit-talking and pirate materials are just a bonus.
