I don't hate it. It causes confusion and is unnecessary, so I made a policy about it.

I didn't do anything this time, and I won't, I just like poking the bear. It's funny going and looking at how many group rides there used to be and how few there are now

I know you didn't do anything. No worries from my end.

Poking the bear can be fun. I do it too (and have infractions to prove it).

And you're right about the group rides. Just not the same any longer.

What was so confusing about asking if anyone wanted to repeat that ride?


The air must be pretty thin up there on your high horse.

You want to fight with MM - go outside or take it to PMs. This time no harm was done, but this is funny exactly in the same moronic way as oiling someone's wheels and watch him slide.
So, you usually look at locked threads for rides to go on?


You suck at trolling.

No, I don't comment on each and every post. I saw the thread BEFORE it was locked, and did it using my phone so dates of posts are also a little hard to read.

If you think it's funny, enjoy it. If you are serious regarding this ride - I'm in on weekdays

Well, just like buying a car, read EVERYTHING before signing....


I was serious, 101 is a ride on my bucket list.

But, thanks to His Majesty, the thread is dead....along with the ride....and this forum.

How about you start a new and relevant thread for it as opposed to bumping a thread outdated by 3 years?

The ride's not dead unless you don't post it. That's on you big guy. Don't point the finger at me for your own actions (or inaction).

And me closing old ride threads hasn't killed this forum. Try again.

Travis has a point, if he wants to bump it saying "hey this ride was fun let's do a repeat" why not? Would it be easier to say "hey this ride was fun," (insert dead thread), let's do it again! Just change the title each year "cascade ride 2012, 2013"

Then year 3 comes around, you get the point.... it's a rhetorical question.

The rides I organize don't get posted on PNW. I don't like picking up bikes on my rides. I know if I go on a PNW ride, there's a strong possibility it will happen, I base whether I want to go or not based on that

MichelinMan, you should consider a career in politics, you're so good at avoiding direct questions, while redirecting the conversation.

Bravo!

You might have meant it to be Rhetorical, but it's actually worth answering.

Each year, start a new thread, and add a link to the previous thread(s) as appropriate. That way there's not one gigantic clusterfuck of a thread with multiple years of shit that will confuse the ever living fuck out of people.

But hey, that's not sensible, now is it?

If I missed a direct question, I offer my apologies. I'd request that you re-ask and I'll happily answer it.

*edit*

Oops, think I found it. I did overlook it.

I don't ride horses. Not really my thing. I prefer motorcycles.

As for asking about repeating the ride? Bumping it does the exact thing that the policy about not bumping old date/time specific threads is for. It dredges up an old thread that's date specific, and allows for the potential confusion of someone thinking it's a valid ride.

It's just as simple to create a new thread, ask your question, and link to the old thread. That way all new and currently relevant posts and information are in a new and relevant thread and doesn't require sifting through all the pages of a four year old thread to find what's new versus what's old.

You might not agree with the policy, but it's not one that I foresee changing. The logic behind it is reasonable and until the policy proves itself otherwise, it'll stay in place.

But you can't make a thread, with a link to another thread, with the purpose of directing traffic to the original thread, remember?

You can't even keep up with your own rules, no wonder you suck as a Moderator.

I forgot... you're the guy with no grey areas. Let me explain it to you:

The "no thread to link to another thread" rule is to prevent creating a thread in one section of the forum... and then creating another thread in a separate thread saying "go look at this!".

In the example we're discussing, you'd be creating a ride thread and linking to an old thread as an explanation of the history.

That's not cross-posting (which is what you're arguing it is).

You say "no grey areas" like that's a bad thing. Rules are black and white, no room for interpretation by enforcers, that's how a dictatorship is run.

You're the guy that Moderates as he see fit.

Enforcing rules when and where you want, to whom ever you want, depending on if you're in favor with them or not.

Letting some threads run amuck, if you find it humorous, burying others if you don't.

Doesn't matter, it is just the internet, right? But it does reveal a lot about you.




Ever notice how no one ever agrees with you? I wonder why that is?
