Forums.. ???

Never joined one till MH, but wanted 2 know what other pll think bout how one should be....

1.. if a thread is made and the mods dont like it but its not negative just not welcomed by them should it be deleted?

2.. should pll have 2 names so they can controll what u read?

3.. ever had 2 leave one because of un fairness?

4..how many mods does a forum need?

5..what are ur ideas on where MH is going this coming year?

6..what would the ideal forum be like..

i thank MH i give them my hard earned money every month and am interested on how i should feel bout some of the things i read and see here any help would be great!

and if the mods can mod and not delete what i write here it would be real cool pll should always feel welcome 2 express themselves... especially if they are a contributing member and sponsor!



let pll talk! mods arent moms and dads just mods let pll say what they have 2 say or want ......... thats what i hope this forum will be about this coming year.....

2. it doesn't matter, if the owner allows it then that it what he wants... it's a dictatorship, he's like here
3. no
4. depends on the number of people and the traffic it gets
5. it's going... to still be used by me
6... i don't know, i have no problem with anoy of the ones i'm on

I am a member of 4 forums, all motorcycle.

I regular 2 of them, this one ranks second, but is coming close to a tie with the other.

One of the other is way to sensitive and gets their feelings hurt. I once said that frame sliders were for pussie s, they nearly hung me for that. LOL.

The other is just not user friendly at all, even though it is a good site, the layout needs a make over.


The site I regular the most is the most laid back I have ever seen, its great. True freedom of speech, about anyone.

MH- well by the looks of past stuff, just more drama BS.


its the personal stuff that people let get to them, give it and take it and lets just ride.

1. no
2. dont really understang the ? so I dunno
3. no
4. depends on the size and traffic as sb said
5. MH is one of the best forums im on right now. All forums have the BS and little cliches. Its just human nature. I dont think MH has anything too worry about.
6. dont think there is or could be one

MH is a realy good forum. Good people, good organization, user friendly, and there are tons of people on it. Some forums you have to wait hours, even days to get a reply back. Here its normally minutes even seconds if you post up at peak times. Even if some of the replys are bs you will eventually get an answer. Good job MH staff looking forward to next year.

if it is not welcomed by them (mods/owner) then I expect them to remove or delete whatever they want. If I post something that they do not want on their site, I think they should exercise their right to remove it. Just like if I invite one of them over to my house, I still control the TV, air condition and so on.

No, but I have seen several popular forums get hot and die due to over-modding/policing and postwhoring. I feel that most of those that left or were banned were treated fairly. And those that left or were banned all moved to another forum and kept on keeping on.

As many as the owner feels is required to keep the site and it's contents to a condition that satisfies the owner, and the majority of it's followers.

I think more people, who don't ride, will continue to join and pass my total number of posts within their first month or two of membership.

Sorry... I didn't read all the replies, but here's my .02

Yes, this is a "public" message board/forum... BUT, someone DOES own this website and message board/forum. People should consider it a privliege to post. If a member doesn't agree with the rules made be the owner... find another place to spam.

Most of the answers will depend on the forum and what it's goal is. Some fit a niche, some are more social, and some are fairly haphazard. That said, here's my best guesstimates...

1.. if a thread is made and the mods dont like it but its not negative just not welcomed by them should it be deleted?

All depends on the nature of the post and the intent of the admins/mods. Will it contribute to the "society" within the forum or is it fodder for arguments and name calling? People should be able to discuss topics with varied opinions, theories, and evidence without going so far as to attack the people posting the opinions. Discuss the facts, not the people.

2.. should pll have 2 names so they can controll what u read?

Not sure what you mean by "control what you read", but if a person cannot be themselves 100% from behind their keyboard as they would in face-to-face conversations, then there's no telling what low they will sink to. That's the members, not the forum. I can't blame MH for some of the lame posters here any more than I can blame the owner of a store for the lunatic shopping there.

3.. ever had 2 leave one because of un fairness?

I'm a mod on another forum and we have had less than a handful of people that were asked to leave, and each was after continued warnings to follow the rules that were already clearly posted. More often than not a person will find that they simply don't enjoy being a member of the group and they will no longer log in or come to events. That is their choice. We do wish them continued safe travels and leave the door open for their return if their absence is voluntary.

4..how many mods does a forum need?

Really depends on the size of the forum, traffic, and how much the site has shown it needs to be modded. As the need increases, you adjust by adding more. If the need decreases, the mods still enjoy their time as "regular" members with little to no volunteer work needed.

5..what are ur ideas on where MH is going this coming year?

I don't have a clue. MH fits a niche locally, but for me personally it is not the en-all-be-all of motorcycling forums. Granted, I ride a bike that is out of "the norm" here and I go on rides and trips that fall way outside the bell curve for this audience. It doesn't stop me from coming by, but the nature of the audience dictates what I will and will not share with them.

6..what would the ideal forum be like..

Again, it all depends on what you are trying to do with it. The answer varies widely if you are trying to provide technical info for a specific bike or brand, trying to bring people together locally, trying to get a "message" out to the community, etc. Before you start a forum, you have to have a goal in mind - then aim for it.

I hope this helps. I'm not sure what angle the questions are coming from, but in reality it doesn't matter since my opinion is just that - my own. I'm not a "Mod " and I'm not an internet expert. I simply try to be a contributing member of society, be it on the web or in real life.

That said... Wanna meet a man and his Pit that have ridden almost everywhere? He'll be in town within a few days

1.. if a thread is made and the mods dont like it but its not negative just not welcomed by them should it be deleted?

A thread will be modded if it is deemed needed by a mod or me.(or in certain cases other members (like Eric EAC) see forum rules - http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...835#post708835
2.. should pll have 2 names so they can controll what u read?
No one has EVER made a 2nd name to control "what you read" You are however trying to take a stab at Patrick on this...not professional. (see Bretts post about drama) ALSO several posters(friends of yours) have made 2nd names to START DRAMA and cause problems... ironic?

3.. ever had 2 leave one because of un fairness?
No, Ive never left because of unfairness.

4..how many mods does a forum need?
Like others said already, as many as an owner sees fit. # of mods doesnt mean more or less modding, just means less load on each mod.

5..what are ur ideas on where MH is going this coming year?
We have some ideas, and others are helping with more.

6..what would the ideal forum be like..
as far as motorcycle boards? I love how TWT runs... great board, low drama, VERY informative. I wish MH could be more like this. Kudos to the owner/admin/mods.

i agree with this, but i think MH has more "personailty". still the drama should go. to me it seems that with TWT, you are almost reading more out of a manual or something, which isn't neccessarily bad though. i like the liveliness of MH.

I agree, I read TWT and feel like I'm reading something that's flat, boring, and monotoned....MH shows some personality and that is what I like.
