    FYI :evil


    ------------------------------

    I just wanted to let you guys know that we're about to experience a very slight URL change. In anticipation of the new homepage that will be coming soon, I'm going to be moving the forums into a subdirectory AND activating a slightly new URL structure. All old URLs will continue to work (They will redirect to the new URLs), so if I do my job right, people really ought to not even notice.

    I am hoping to make this change by early next week. Still some testing to do on the automatic redirects implementation.

    Can we bypass this new front page and go straight to the forum or is always going to be like this now? Or do I need to save the link to the forum and use that instead?

    Reeks of advertising.

    It's the purpose of every "revamp" which is done "for US !" Hahaha, yeah right. We will become the commodity.

    Only one way this will go now as things get all corporate.

    But at the end of the day it's only a website :lol3

    Interestingly, that link initially took me to the forums but now takes me to the new home page.

    Conspiracy ! Oh well, at least now I can read all about the "New Bike from BMW that will blow your mind !" and "This one thing will make your penis drop off on an adventure ride" etc :jack

    My original saved links only took me to the new home page for a one time only tour... after that I’m back in forums every time.

    Baldy’s reasons for starting ADV was an interesting read and one he’d not shared before, it struck a chord with me. And yes it is on CAKE.CO , I did a quicky tour and some other conversations I’ll go back and read. If you never want to go there then don’t the choice is ours. Is the place changing... of course it had to... nothing is free for ever and I for one am grateful for the ‘baldy’ free ride for my short time here as it’s connected me with a bunch of great like minded people in meat space so when and if it costs I’ll still be here. :freaky

    Guys why when I save the link to the forums direct does it work for a bit and then send me to the corporate waffle page ? First world problem I know but could one of you computer savvy chaps please explain this witchcraft - or what I am doing wrong.

    Thanks Guys, weirdly it works sometimes and other time not. It's not the end of the world but I appreciate the response.

    I've changed my book mark to yours. I don't understand why my link to the forums was displaying a different link. As I said, it must be witchcraft :lol3

    I hear soon there will be a paid subscription to remove the ads.
