Yeah, my friend uses OTN and he hates it. Apparently Lots of members are jerks.
Yeah

Especially the admins and supporters (have more say)

but I come here to ask questions because I know the replies there will be like "f*ggot" or "You're an idiot"

But sadly the community is bigger there and admins are going around saying pinkbike is for f*ggots.

Like how in the recent threads thing on the right of the screen im noticing it will say for example;

Which Grips? (BMX)

maybe we could have one that says (Trials) beside threads that are posted in the Trials forum to help get those un related threads a little more less common?

I don't think that would work, as half the members misread trials and read trails...

The trials forum looks better. The trials picture section is chock full of completely unrelated photos, though.

Ha, I kind of like it. Though do you think it would solve the dyslexia problem?

i think it would help. i dont know about you, but all my friends tell me im not biking im just being a ninja on a bike so maybe when people read it they well be more inclined to figure out what it is as apposed to just posting all willy nilly

I personally hate all the moderators on OTN, they're all a bunch of f*ggots who totally go overboard on there authority and just ban whom ever they like when they get backed into a corner and proven totally wrong.
They're exactly like that mall cop who can't get a real job as a cop...hence the name rent-a-pig.

OTN is good for video's and a few opinions but other then that..I'm glad its been hacked again.....& I hope it gets hacked when its fixed or get some moderators who are alot more mature. Debates are debates..they get heated so know when to step in & when to back out.

You are 100% correct.

I think there should be a competition thread where upcoming comps are posted and where we could post if we are going and talk about the comps.

I could post my pic from OTN up for you Alex.....However PB isn't the same as OTN and that would ruin everyones riding ability for at least a month.

I find it amazing that some people still don't know the difference between trials and trails.

I like the forum as it is..

If we divide it up too much it will seem like nothing ever happens here. lol
I like how this forum is very open and new riders (trials, xc, bmx, whatever) can ask anything.
I really dislike the new rider category being separate from a more "experienced" rider category. To me, that just shows there is no community. There shouldn't be only a couple "experienced" guys telling new people what to do just cause they check a sub-forum normally and the others don't bother.
If its all together, everyone has better odds of noticing some new guys post and maybe helping him out.

It would be nice to have a competitions, tutorial, and maybe a media sub-forum. But if they were just Stickies and there was some way of having them highlighted when its new or has a new post, that would probably be better..
There just doesn't seem to be enough competitions going on to need a dedicated section.
Maybe just have a stickies sub-forum and highlight that when something new is added?

This forum isn't as biased as the other major forums either. They can call it gay all they want. At least there are open minds here. Salute
