I agree that some posts get way off topic and some topics have nothin to do with mx, but an off topic forum would solve that problem, so people trying to get technical info wouldnt have bored kids like myself going off topic on their threads.

I too have noticed a change, we need to stick to the original plan here, this is what brought me to ATM in the first place.
It is very easy for people to go to a chat room or PM each other when looking for advise on love and dating. There are some OT topics that are warrented, but they seem to be more related to the original subject ie: Riding off road. Just my opinion.

Click on 'Forums' in the upper left hand corner. Select the forum you want to post in and then look on the right hand side and you will see "new thread". Took me forever to figure it out too.

Yes must tip the coffee cup to the Gent from Belgium's videos - very cool.
On the other note, I believe the sandbox idea was a great one: maybe an off-topic romper room (tho' I guess it would generate greater bandwidth...)?

Thx for the new posting info too Ty

I've have moderated other sites and am currently a Senior Moderator of both ATM and KTM Talk and let me tell you in the past, KTM Talk, Extreme Dirtbike, DRN, and others have all tried having an Off Topic forum and it has always failed. Over 50% of the post had to be deleted because of context or grammer, or name calling, and other worthless posting.

So from the past experience of other dirtbike sites, I don't think having an Off Topic forum will add to any advantage, but I've been wrong in the past.

For what it's worth, I never even read "Where should I take this girl I like" because I really could not care less. But being an issue of drivespace & dollars for the one paying the bills ( I'm new, so I don't know who Tyler is but I would like to thank him.) I'm guilty of perpetuating such posts as MX Unleashed or How fast is your net connection? And for that I apoligize PLEEEASE don't kick me out!!I like it here!!
