Hey Todd, why the new thread?

Its quite hard to find old posts and pics in a 230+ page thread, and it is only going to get longer and longer.

I think 100 pages for a thread is starting to push it. Much easier to follow smaller ones if you decide to look back over them later.


I find that logic really lost on me.
will we see the flatland forum locked soon and a new flatland forum started (v2) for newer threads also?

I have to agree with Byke.
This is pretty redundant.
I actually thought it was awesome to have over 200 pages of bike pics to see.

It gave the forum some kind of history sense, as you could see the evolution of designs, technology and trends in Flatland bikes.

I guess making everything V2 is a new trend as well. :rolleyes:

I remember on pedal when someone would try to create another thread claiming the old one was too long, everyone would shun the person and tell them that the 800 page long thread was how it was supposed to be.

Times they are a'changin.


EDIT: It would at least be an idea to sticky the other thread. Otherwise its the same situation but worse...

You'd have to locate the thread in pages of threads that sunk past page 1 - not good if you want to look back thorough all the bikes.

Ok, ill sticky the old thread, but a sh*tload of those posts in the old thread have broken/dead links for the pics anyway.

I just think its just a horrible idea to be searching through more that 200 pages of posts, especially when you have no idea what page it is on.

Its not like im deleting it.

I've tried to find a certain bike or pic in the old thread too, and wish there was a tool at the top where you type in the page you are looking for. For example, type in page 145 and presto, there it is. That way it won't take ten minutes to reach something.
