Title: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: Rompy on January 05, 2007, 06:27:16 PM
I think it would be great to have a forum category for posting about sessions or small events happening.

Would it be possible to create a "Sessions" or "Jams" category, does anyone agree ?

any other ideas? Id like to see global flat Forums community grow in the advent of PedalBMX really sucking these days id rather use this Forum since this site is by far superior!  :mellow:

Well I can see where you guys are comming from, but I think GF Is o.k. as it is, I mean, its not like each category is so filled with active threads that some active ones get moved to the second page, and besides I don't want GF to turn into another *cough* pedalbmx *cough*. not that martin would ever that that happen.

Im not saying to add a bunch of other categories but seperating events/sessions would make sense as we can find those topics more easily and it might generate more posts on that topic.

everyone loved when pedal bmx was one forum for all flatland, pics and what not. Then mods would move everything you type!

Is there really any need for new categories?

I think it's pretty much perfect right now.

If there were more categories, the population would "spread" around. And I for one don't like to go through 10 different categories to see what´s up.

Maybe in future, if this forum gets a lot bigger and bigger and you'll find 30 jam reports on the same page in flatland-category, but not at the moment.

hell yea, that "upgrade" was unecessary, it was fine as it was. Using the community as beta testers. And after all of that, it's worse..
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: mutt on January 09, 2007, 09:14:21 PM
i added my vote
heya just a few more forums
not many as it is almost perfect here
i think masked vulgar should be banned
and i know one of the moderator and i
talked about this.

well event forum would be better because there is always the news bot in GF that gets in the way...

also a little bit more arrangement and order in here would be awesome  :beer:
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: Martin on January 10, 2007, 03:55:21 PM
Hey hey don't blame the mighty news_bot  ;D

So it looks like we are going to open an event forum or category. There aren't too many positive posts in this topic but much more votes ..

By the way I don't think there is a need for many more categories. The only sense of an additional category should be to improve the overview and order in the forum. And in my opinion for the events it makes sense.

ye i hope this place wont go that far, but there is a forum in my country that has 0 sub forums, and its a freaking mess!!!!
just add max more 2 forums, dont do pics and vids... its too much and also not that frequen in my opinion, a stickied thread works perfectly always  -_-

yeah there is this BMX froum i go on and it does my head in. it has all disaplines but we all share a video and bike check page so i posted my bike it was gone in a day and of course there is like 10 flatlanders and i think 1 saw it.
but here its nicely done. but if bike pics could be a sticky that would be nice.
but i dont see anything wrong with it martin really  :wub:

Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: DaviD (dave0) on January 12, 2007, 11:58:53 AM
im quite happy right now, but sometimes the new_bot takes alot of space in the forum...
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: Jesse Vetrone on January 12, 2007, 12:58:27 PM
A news one is probobly a good idea. I agree that the news bot kills.
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: mutt on January 12, 2007, 09:44:22 PM
yeah that might be a good idea
maybe three extra froums
it seems global the next forum
fro flatland as pedal is dying or
has pretty much died.

become ultra stiff and boring.

Post by: mutt on January 14, 2007, 07:08:17 PM
i hate it when you try to load pedal and you get the horizontal lines
like it does not load up fast enough and you have to sit there like
2 minutes for those lines to disappear and for it to load up.

i hate that
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: Jesse Vetrone on January 14, 2007, 08:07:24 PM
yeah when you scroll and it makes the lines.... nick busey tries but it's busted beyond repair  :P

Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: mutt on January 14, 2007, 10:42:11 PM

martin do it right
take your time
i think a few more categories will be good.
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: Peter Hollinger on January 19, 2007, 12:45:31 AM
I dont think adding more stuff is a good idea, look what happened to pedal, you posted a pic in the flatland section and had your post deleted.

Things get stupid. I like the forums as they are, flatand is flatland, should it be videos, news whatever, its all flat.

Just my two cents.

Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: mutt on January 19, 2007, 07:05:59 AM
i did not say put ads in
justa few more forums

nothing real dramatic
like what predal did which is
stupid and has driven people away.

Information concerning events are posted >here (http://www.global-flat.com/events/events.php?o=date&days=365)< ! There's no need for an additional events forum.

then why the news_bot is sometimes 70% of the posts...
Title: Re: Additional forum categories ?
Post by: Martin on January 20, 2007, 10:54:35 PM
I'm preparing the new event category. The poll had a clear result. Only 20% against this new category.

By the way who said there will be many more categories ? No photo/video forum or other needless stuff is planned ..
