is this now a "hidden" website?

only visible to those that are logged in and signed up? i really,really,really hate that type of forum. i want to send links to my ride reports to friends and family and have the site to be viewable without having to log in. it also gives a false representation of the true member count ie;when Glenn got banned from advrider.com the member #'s swelled from the looky lou's going to dot net for a look see.

maybe this is temporary until dot net gets sorted out?

Thanks to some truely decent individuals from another reputable (or lack there of) forum who decided it was cute in a 3rd grade way to copy and paste info from posts here and then ad lib them to meet their below average Intellectual capacity to feel like a real hero.

It is what it is, and I can't change that, leave it to the few to ruin things for the community. It would be too much if we were able to weed out the leeches on society. So we have to adapt around them.

told a guy at the bmw shop about this place today. i forgot about the members only thing...

the hidden forum isn't working for me. i don't like my trip reports being locked up.

i've noticed alot of sketchy user names lately on the "new members" at the bottom of the page. the trouble makers are gonna make up screen names and come here to find dirt anyways.

please unlock the forum.

TIA

I think for nearly 400 members to only have one complaint so far is not bad.

It will remain a registered member site. I get a log of user IP addresses upon registration and that help sort out users who might decide to signup more than one to have a trouble making account etc. Makes my job of pointing out unwanted trouble makers and issuing bans easier, should it get to that point.

Please unlock the damn thing. It's not stopping anyone from doing anything. Ever heard of IP proxies? A person can change their IP as easily as their underwear!

Complaint #3

I tried to pass this site on to others, get them into riding.

No Joy, they won't join something they can't view beforehand.

I guess no one has bothered with this problem on the beloved other site?

No big deal, a simple registration is not to much ask to use the site. You cant please all of the people all of the time, only some of the people some of the time.

If there were enough mature users out there who would not copy and past posts from this site on others and then ad lib them for personal pleasure to feel like the keyboard tuff guy, then things would be different.

If its KLR info and a decent site people want, registration should be the last of their worries.

the other site played these same games and it drove me to post trip reports to other sites. sticking to this format will be this sites undoing as well,good luck.

if a person is sooo sensitive that some loser stealing their words and poking fun at them is the end of the world,maybe they should sign off the internet and hide under the bed.
