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

    This a bucket post for everything about the Old's Cool forum. First, it's hard to improve on what @kbasa initially wrote when the forum was implemented, lo those many years ago:

    "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'm also aligned with what Dave said there: I try not to mod too heavily. We're all adults. I'll move some stuff around once in a while. Bad attitudes and forum rage will get punted to Head Explody. But other than that, I'm trying to stay out of your way.

    The bottom line rules for ADV all apply, and will be enforced (especially nudity - no NSFW images are allowed). If you post to the Flea Market thread, your item must have a price, and all "Dibs" or PM sent" posts will be deleted. And if you have a problem with something or someone, report it, or send a PM to a moderator.
