    I have to agree with Fab Foodie only a bit stronger - you have created a forum crock of shite.

    Just another small tweak guys... When you log in via the forum, you should be redirected to the forum, not the main page.

    Edit* What about a section dedicated to webcams/home made videos and photo's?

    The vote suggests something more than BNP and less than Lib Dem. Hard to characterise as an improvement in anybody's terms.

    The Cycling Plus forum was tough to improve upon in both presentation and content.

    Sadly all that collected knowledge and energy has been dissipated in trying to make sense of this site .. or rail against it.

    Like Mad Professor says It wasn't broke but you've certainly unfixed it.

    John, a little bug from a moderation point of view:
    If I try to move a topic to a different section, for example from the MTB general forum to the commuting general forum, there's no categories on the list of forums, just the names of the forums. As a result, I have to guess which category I'm going for by where it is in relation to the Sandbox or something.

    Also, page titles. The forum index has a title, but none of the other pages do. I tend to go to a forum, open up every topic I want to read in tabs, then go to the next forum and do the same. Without page titles, it's very difficult to distinguish between tabs, especially as I sometimes flick between them while they're open and read parts of topics at a time if I get distracted by something.

    I find it interesting that there appear to be so many moderators. C+ didn't have very many - and none over the weekends.

    Because it's a much larger forum, jaded.

    Even now, some kind of daily report of what has been noted/captured, what will be done, likely time-scales etc. Then people would be more sympathetic.

    Exactly. I pop in from time to time to see if anything is changed, or if there's a plan to improve things. Sadly i'm checking less now as nothing appears to have been done on either front.

    Bikeradar admin :- Can you list what you're planning to do with the forum and likely timescales ?

    If C+ had none over the weekends, then surely none over the weekends is fine here too? :lol:

    Are the mods all new then, or are they from the other forums? If the latter then there is an imbalance.

    Only if this forum is just a bigger C+. Which it isn't.

    Most of the mods are from MBUK because MBUK needed more moderating. These mods only have powers in the MtB sections, though.
    You could argue that there is an imbalance, I suppose. Does C+ need mods now? I think the 'roadies are ghey' vs 'MtBers are ghey' arguments will die down before the forum's finished anyway, and, from what I understand, there's not a lot else to moderate against in C+.

    Log off... don't sign in again... stop crying... problem solved.

    People like you just don't want to make any effort to make this place better, so it'll be better off without you.

    TBH I'm not bothered whether I do or don't, I just don't want a site holding my details that I have no interest in.

    You like the site, then bully for you, I won't criticise your preference. Its your call

    I don't, thats my call.

    Smells like contradiction.

    You'll be back. When you realise that your reserve WMB forum has a climax community of 70 members it perhaps wont seem so appealing.

    I'll see you at the end.

    You'll see me on the floor.

    apcmtb - you were a miserable git on the old forum, so we'll not miss you. I thought you might crawl under the nearest stone, given your outlook at the new site. Bye, we won't miss you... :D

    I love that. He wasn't even liked on the old place, that's got to hurt.

    How can they delete the account with you still logged into it?

    Come on, think dude, think. You can still read the boards with you're logged out.

    On an aside AFAIK ads can be swiched off in firefox adblocker? and maybe someone could write something for greasemonkey.

    Actually he is quite popular in the WMB forum, still is.

    I guess high rider is talking about the MBUK forum.
  • Either way if APCMTB still wants us to delete his account we can do it in the morning, sorry to see you go but it's a free world after all.

    I know the forums currently are not what many regulars would like them to be (possibly a bit of an understatment), but believe me we are working to improve them and you will see some changes by the end of the week. It was never our intention to force people together into one big forum, well alright one big forum if you wanted it to be that way, but the idea was, and still is, to make the forums filterable so that you can just go to the road forum or the mtb forum and never go anywhere else if you don't want to. It nearly works now, if you come in via the road, or moutain bike buttons and use the breadcrumbs to navigate back - but it should and will be more sophisticated than that. It also was always the plan, until pretty much the 11th hour, to move the forums over last - even so some of the biggest bugs still wouldn't have been apparent until the forums went live. We know there is a lot to do, but we are doing it - and if you think this is bad it's nothing compared to the last time we moved the forums.

    After that move all the members had to re-register and a lot of them and a lot of those who stayed complained about the sterility of the new ones, and they were sterile at first but they grew to be a much bigger and better forums than the ones they replaced. We learned a lot of lessons then, okay we only managed to put about half of them into action but we tried believe me.

    All I'd ask is a little tolerance of each other (you can say what you like to us) while we go about giving you the forums you want. You could even go and look around the rest of the site, we've invested a lot of time, effort and money into putting together something that has a lot more going for it than the old sites and we're going to keep working on that too - galleries for pictures and videos will be coming soon and there's plenty of really good stuff on there already. We read the forums all the time, and now that we can start to see the wood for the trees we will be on here regularly to answer your questions.
