    I like the idea. The option to receive or not receive emails was available when I registered for ADV. I'd love to see the front page photos return too.

    Why are you so adamant in your support of this? Are you being paid or do you just like being a jerk?

    I'm in. Most of the time the forum is TLDR for me. Too much time sifting through dozens and hundreds of posts I haven't been able to keep up with while I am also not just sitting in front of the computer 24/7. So having someone do the leg work sounds all right to me.

    So, how will you stop this email from being lost in the black hole that is the tons of emails showing 'xxx replied to thread' that all never get read?

    Don't get me wrong, think it's a great idea, but how's it gonna work in practice?

    I liked the photo opening page. Obviously I do not have a stake in this project but if you are going to consider a “cream of ADVRider” thread selection, I’d prefer it be the “home” page like the pictures were. You could have a rotating picture with a corrisponding thread linked below. “Never leave a man’s behind” with a picture of Nate in front of his (poorly) packed motorcycle on your screen for 20 seconds rotates to the vitim river bridge and a thread of a ride report through Russia.

    I miss opening up ADVRider and just staring lustfully at places I would love to see in person or sharing hilarious moto wrecks with my kids as they scrolled by.

    Great Idea. Maybe for those not interested a big Unsubscribe button at the top of the first email will cull them all out right away. We will have lots of time to read now that we are finally home from the RTW. Sara

    Good idea for some, but not for me thanks. Now, I've read the message at the top of the page and I don't need it taking up half my screen from here on in, how do I get rid of it?

    One email a week and some of you are bitching about spam?

    Just hit no thanks ffs. :loco

    I like it. Especially if they occasionally contain titties. Will there be? :D
