Is ATM Now A Teen Moto Forum?
I joined ATM December 26th 2003 and for the first time found a nice online home where people of all ages and backgrounds came together to discuss their love of off-road riding and technical issues in a context that is family-oriented.

However, of recent either the demographics or the content emphasis of the site has taken a huge shift. I am curious what some of you have observed in this regard; hence, the poll . . . . :)

I think we need to stay a little closer to the topics related to All Things Moto.

It is not bad to share advice on other issues but most off topic stuff can be handled in private or better yet in the ATM chatroom......(like there are not enough chat rooms on the internet already! LOL).

I think its cool to see off topic stuff---Some of it we could do without-but some of it I can benefit and maybe get a laugh...

I agree with you DC, but sometimes its okay.

I nuetral on this vote.

It's definately getting out of hand on the silly postings.

I think some times it can get a little outa hand but isnt it ok to give some advice to people that need it, even if it doesnt exaclty have to do with off road riding.

I voted no. Considering how many teenagers we have, I dont think its out of hand. Like 4strk said, it provides a good laugh occasionally and reminds me how good it is to be past that phase in life.

Re: Is ATM Now A Teen Moto Forum?
you should just have an off topic section like the old paintball forum

Re: Is ATM Now A Teen Moto Forum?
I have noticed that the content of ATM has gone a little south lately. Not that we don't need advice on subjects that don't pertain to MX but I think it should take place elsewhere. Use the PM system or find a teen site of somesort and use that. I am in no way picking on any of the young guys or gals on ATM...we really want you guys here but I agree with D and Satch in the fact that we need to get back on track, use this site for what it was intended and remember GMB.

aw man, me and yz250fkid went in one of those forums and there are some freaks in there..some of the topics were "why do you cut yourself and how does it feel" "how often do you think of committing suicide" "how many times have you been arrested" "im thinking of killin myself" and just crazy junk! seriously, you should just make an off topic section IMO

Re: Is ATM Now A Teen Moto Forum?
I'm a little new to ATM but wanted to add my 2 cents. I get some great advice from this site and think it definitely accomplishes it's goal in helping riders. I also think it is OK for some off topic postings - within reason. I much rather see teens hanging out on ATM and sharing what is going on in their lives besides MX then off doing alot of other things teens could be doing - I think the more experinced members are a good role model and have some good advice to give if they choose to. Why I'm not a teen and don't need that advice I have learned a great deal about riding and bikes and appreciate it greatly.
