Too bad there isn't a software fix that changes the color of the thread title (to red or whatever)....when that thread is older than a set period of time (maybe a month??)...

Fyi guys/gals, I just spoke with Nels, and there will be a Dyno event coming to the Westside in the near future.

I can see both sides of the argument here, although I found this particular thread bump funny,


Just goes to show, people do not read or comprehend what they are reading.

Old thread bumping will be tolerated in Track Trime. Just FYI.

Is there anything that isn't permitted in Track Time?

If it were up to me and me alone? Not really, no.

Meh... sure it could have been handled differently, but, this way still accomplishes the goal of stopping confusion, so it's all good.

maybe this once, but keeping up that practice will end up with half the threads being deleted :/

It's not an overreaction if it prevents confusion on what the real April meetup will be about, where it'll be, etc.

The last thing we need is people sending Travis paypal payments or showing up to an event that isn't happening.

Outside of special circumstances or OP request, I don't believe that the mods (myself included) have a habit of deleting threads that aren't spam.

Should you choose to needlessly bump an old thread that relates to a bikenight, a "dated" event (one that has a specific time/place), or any other thread that falls under this general premise, you will receive an infraction.

These types of thread bumps are not productive, do not benefit the community or forum in any way, and will be handled accordingly.

If I haven't made this clear before by my previous actions related to actions of this nature, allow this thread to serve said purpose.

Should there be any questions, post them here and I'll address as needed.

Seems kind of lame to blame someone for bumping an old thread when the thread can be locked when requested? Folks can still read it (deleting a thread is also sketchy), they just can't screw around with it anymore.

How about put responsibility on the original poster to request a lock on it, when they so desire?

The thread wasn't "deleted", it was moved to a different section. Additionally, it wasn't an act of censorship. It was done to prevent confusion (as has been noted by several users that the thread was creating).

To your comment of "locking" the thread: A thread that's been dead for 11 months and is many pages back in a given sub-forum is for all intents and purposes "tucked away".

Rather than putting the onus on users to request locks to each of their threads, the general premise would be to use common sense in what does and doesn't get bumped.

One comment I haven't made until now: I didn't find this thread and choose to take action on it. It was reported by several users and I responded to from there. Ties directly back to the "community self-regulating" comment I've made before.

How long until this thread is "OLD" and I can bump it for a infraction? I don't think I have any of those yet.

I saw the thread had been bumped and I looked at the last couple of posts to see if someone had added any pictures of the event. I saw Cyndy had put a bunch of the on facebook and I thought there were different ones on there as well.

Perhaps after a certain amount of time with event specific threads the OP can request that it be closed.

Like nakedinseattle said, there could be some obscure piece of information that will need to be referenced 5.8621 years from now as to why a certain type of oil or tyre compound is better than others. Perhaps locking it to avoid mishaps in the future.

And, Finally, to Travis. I may hate on you alot in jest, but I gotta hand it to you. Your events kick ass. Keep up the hard work for the good of the community. I love you like fat kids love cake. You do love cake, don't you?

Hopefully I'll see you at ORP in a couple of weeks. Personal events have made me refocus my track budget for next month, but I'm coming out anyways, just not to ride.

Just for this thread, I am going to go bump a bunch of old Portland threads to piss lena off!
