Question Forum Critique | Everyone please respond!

Everyone's aware of the fact that there has been some significant forum drama going around lately. The forum has been around for awhile now, and this is the most wild I've seen it. Now since things haven't always been this way, it begs the question...Whats going on???

In quest for an answer I've put together a few questions. this is your chance to make submit your comments/criticism in a fashion that can be useful to everyone, instead of just arbitrary slander that "this forums run is over"

The forum is only as good as it's members. Please answer all the questions. (make it easy, just copy/paste)


1) How long have you been a member of this forum? (in months)

2) Have you contributed to the forum in a positive way? How?

3) Have you contributed to the forum in a negative way? How?

4) In your opinion, what would make this forum better?

5) In your opinion, what would make this forum worse?

6) What is a good reason for leaving the forum?

7) If you think there is a better forum, why is it better?

8) any miscellaneous comments

I know this is kinda dorky, but thanks for any/all responses.

I dont come around much, so I dont know much about the drama thats going on. I've read that BD left and Luis, but no clue why. But Like a couple of the forums I've been on for years, this allways seems to happen. We own the bike when its new, then buyers of Used bikes come in and ask alot of the same Q's....just seems like things have come full circle.
1) How long have you been a member of this forum? (in months) 38 Months....

2) Have you contributed to the forum in a positive way? How? I believe so. Helps people with some DIY stuff.

3) Have you contributed to the forum in a negative way? How?Don't think so

4) In your opinion, what would make this forum better?No clue. there is ALOT of info here.

5) In your opinion, what would make this forum worse?

6) What is a good reason for leaving the forum?

7) If you think there is a better forum, why is it better?

8) any miscellaneous comments

I know this is kinda dorky, but thanks for any/all responses.
Other then that, just wish I knew more so I could help out more....

1) How long have you been a member of this forum? (in months)
53 months
2) Have you contributed to the forum in a positive way? How?
yes, many how tos, helpful responses, served as moderator, posted interesting threads from time to time, promoted the word "ninny"
3) Have you contributed to the forum in a negative way? How?
yes, PWed too much, probably upset a few posting religion threads (dont regret it)
4) In your opinion, what would make this forum better?
If old time members would quit leaving, new members would learn how to use a search button, there would be LESS arguing b/w members
5) In your opinion, what would make this forum worse?
more political threads, more threads about oil, tires, and other REDUNDANT threads,
6) What is a good reason for leaving the forum?
if your too busy. I think taking a little brake makes more sense to me though
7) If you think there is a better forum, why is it better?
dont know one
8) any miscellaneous comments
as I said in my original post, the forum is only as good as its members. think about what you say and post before you do so. and old time members need to lighten up some too. many of us were a newbie at one time or another.

1) How long have you been a member of this forum? (30+)
2) Have you contributed to the forum in a positive way? Every once in a blue moon I'll throw out some help here and there or pass a suggestion. I like sharing my experiences in riding with the members too.
3) Have you contributed to the forum in a negative way? Sarcasm comes out from time to time.
4) In your opinion, what would make this forum better? Mods that are united and keep the members straight.
5) In your opinion, what would make this forum worse? In fighting among Mods and threads with racial overtones.
6) What is a good reason for leaving the forum? Disrespect
7) If you think there is a better forum, why is it better? This one is my favorite!
8) any miscellaneous comments. This place is a second home. I travel a lot and don't have a whole lot of stability with locations. Having this place to come visit no matter where I am makes me feel at home.

Thanks for the feedback & I would love to get some of our disgruntled members in here as well (or the ones that see ZX-10R.net fall the way of the stock market).

1) How long have you been a member of this forum? (in months)
about 40 months
2) Have you contributed to the forum in a positive way? How?
think so in that i give people support, honest reviews of products that i have bought.
3) Have you contributed to the forum in a negative way? How?
i dont think so, i have never been rude or disrespectful to anyone about anytihng
4) In your opinion, what would make this forum better?
for me i would just love this forum if it just had bike and bike related threads and topics. no funny pages, no porn, no out-house
5) In your opinion, what would make this forum worse?
i think the massive influx of members will make it worse...but cant stop that, it defeats the purpose of a forum...so i guess i dont have an answer
6) What is a good reason for leaving the forum?
i feel its easy...the utility you receive from the forum is no longer high enough to justify your time and energy to it.
7) If you think there is a better forum, why is it better?
this is the only forum I am a member of
8) any miscellaneous comments
this is a great board, i have bought nearly every aftermarket part for my bike off members here. i feel some people spend way to much time on here and take things way to seriously. on the other hand new members need to understand how things work here and if you dont want to get bogged down in the opinions and what not than limit yourself to what you read and what you respond to. i myself lurk the classifieds and comment time to time on misc. threads. i read waaaaaay more than i post because i believe you should not post just to post, post if you have something beneficial to add.

to the classifieds i return.

full ahead hard and fast....

1) How long have you been a member of this forum? (in months)
4 Months..


2) Have you contributed to the forum in a positive way? How?
I am still very new, but I try to put my in to help out where ever I can...


3) Have you contributed to the forum in a negative way? How?
Ehh... Does being a in the chat thread count as negative?


4) In your opinion, what would make this forum better?
Less topics that can potentially offend people (politics, end of the world, etc.) Also it would be nice if the veterans would stick around long enough to show the squids (like me) what it is to contribute to the forum.


5) In your opinion, what would make this forum worse?
Losing more good moderators...


6) What is a good reason for leaving the forum?
If you have other stuff going on in your life that takes priority... IMO nothing that happens on the forum should make you leave...


7) If you think there is a better forum, why is it better?



8) any miscellaneous comments
When the going gets tough, the tough bitch, moan, and jump ship... Whaaaa??

You don't know what you can do until you know what you can't do...

To get a real life. i.e. You are overdoing it, if you're logged in 24/7 and post on almost every thread.

I think this is still a pretty good forum.
