A modest proposal

Chris and the powers that be on the board,

What are the possibilities that on the opening page where there are boxes like "Upcoming Events" and "Weather" that we could create a box with info for new members, lurkers that have bikes but might be intimidated and might otherwise not post and others that are considering becoming riders.

It would have answers to questions that some might be embarrassed to ask, (thinking that it might sound stupid) MSF information, safety gear and that kinda stuff. Not another board within the board, just something that would inform those that don't know, or who don't want to ask.

It would be cool if we could come up with something like "The ten commandments of riding" that would be common sense type rules to us but might be a life saver for a noob.

Maybe it will save some heartache down the road, you know the ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Kick it around and give it some thought. If it would cost money to do this, I might consider underwriting it if necessary.

i think he means that instead of having this stickies on each sub topic, to have a button in the bar that will take you to all the sticky ones and more.

Okay let me try to explain it like this.

Let's say that it's your first time here on the board and you either
a) New Rider
b) Inexperienced Rider
c) Considering a bike but you're uncertain which direction to go

When you open the front page, there is a box similar to
* Current Events
* Forum Updates
* Upcoming Events
* Weather

The box could be titled something like "New Riders/Members Info"

It would have
"The ten commandments of safe riding" (to be written by board members)

MSF information (some noobs don't know the first thing about riding and the MSF could make the difference between life and death for them

Answers to questions that a noob would have but is afraid to ask because they might think that it sounds stupid

I'm certain the membership could come up with a few more topics that could be covered. It shouldn't be another section within the board, (like the for sale section or Gen Discussion) but something like "bullets" that would provide information to these topics with a click.

I know that there are stickies here and there on the board that probably cover the subject, but if someone is just lurking and clicks the box it could provide them with quick info that they might not otherwise get anywhere else.
