How to be cool in Old's Cool.
 
Howdy everyone! With a couple new sub-forums, our little corner of the world is getting bigger and broader, so to make this all work, we all need to work together.

There are only a few simple things we need to do make information easy to find, usefully informative and entertaining.

1. Put your posts in the right forum. Two stroke or Airhead? Put 'em in those forums. Your thread will get more attention from people who know those bikes, so you'll get better help.

2. Try to keep it on the topic of old bikes. Yes, we're all here because we love old bikes. I know we like to talk about other stuff, but there are spots in Inmates and JM for non old bike stuff.

3. Don't be a dick. Yep. That's it. We all need to remember that there are a variety of opinions and practices we will all never agree on. If someone's got a thread going, trying to get their bike fixed, don't start a pissing contest with someone else if you differ on the solution. Propose your solution. Remember - help the dude fix his bike.

I try not to mod too heavily. We're all adults. I'll move some stuff around once in a while. I might pull some less than helpful posts out of a thread and drop them in Head Explody. But other than that, I'm trying to stay out of your way. If I'm talking to you, it's not because I like screwing with people (I truly don't), it's because I'm trying to help everyone have a good time.

I love old bikes. You love old bikes. Let's talk about old bikes.

Thanks for the effort. And I'm thinking the non airhead old bike guys are happy to be done with us messing up the old school forum.

But honestly, we've all got other things to do as well, and when the Dakar or another big rally is on, I can't click in here for weeks. So hitting the "report" button is a good thing, it alerts us that something may or may not need attention. It's not necessarily a whiny thing. All in all, moderating Old's Cool and Racing, where ladies and gentlemen congregate, is a wonderful thing. :D
