    I would like my own forum, please.

    I would like my own forum like KWICK has, where I can post stuff for discussion but have full moderating powers to delete responses that I don't like.

    Do I have to donate a certain amount of funding, or buy ad space to allow me to have my own forum? If so, what is that amount?

    Thanks.

    Re: I would like my own forum, please.

    One day it dawned on me that many forums are a great business opportunity to vend products related to that particular bike and some of these guys doing it have made a good living for themselves in the process.
    You may say "Brilliant observation, Captain Obvious", but nevertheless, it is an example of free markets in action, and we all benefit from it, especially those with REALLY old bikes in need of parts and advice.
    As of yet, I like my pristine stock ZRX, but sure have been tempted by some of the goodies available.

    For sure!

    Iím not looking to have my own forum for parts sales. I would like a forum like KWICK has where he post tips and thoughts on misc stuff. Itís not a sale thread, so board rules that pertain to sale threads donít apply. Meaning people can involve themselves in the discussion. I want my own forum like that, where I also have the power to delete peopleís posts as I wish.

    KWICK'S forum is in the market place, so not only can he moderate you, so can others.

    Re: I would like my own forum, please.

    Ah I get it now ,,, so he deleted ONE of your posts in his forum and now you want to disrupt the whole board because of it

    I dont have anything against anyone on the board but come on , Is it that big of a deal that he has a little more leeway here then most , He has given us members 15yrs of good service and has done me some solids , I have done some biz with you too and am grateful , I believe your a good person and a valued member , Is it really worth it to things up .

    Things have happened to me here that have not sat well but I just let it go and carry on , I dont often speak whats really on my mind but in this instant`s I felt compelled to .

    Re: I would like my own forum, please.

    Speaking of Facebook, KWICK's kingdom even extends there as well. He's successfully gotten peoples' posts deleted on Facebook, through threats of damage to the livelihood of members of this board. So even without cover of "The Market Place" he can impose his will in other ways, even beyond the boundaries of this message board. It is good to be King!


    I can promise that if I am granted my own Forum with moderating authority of that forum, I will not threaten the livelihood of others here on the board should someone on Facebook talk bad about me.

    It has been a trend. Let's just say today was that straw.

    I'm a rules kind of guy. If we have rules, everyone plays by them.....good guys, bad guys, kings and queens. The rules of the market place are intended to help people selling items keep their sale threads clean. KWICK's forum where he posts basically General Banter is not a sale thread. It is a violation of board rules to delete people's posts willy nilly, just because the moderator might not agree with something said.

    Should KWICK be cut some slack so he can play favorites in his own forum? Not if there are no rules posted stating that he has that authority. Nowhere is it stated that if you post in one of Pete's "General Banter" posts you run the risk of having your comments deleted. If he starts a sale thread (hard to tell sometimes with his manner of posting), there are rules to abide by. There is a different set of rules to abide by for "general banter" posts. Having your posts deleted just because isn't one of them.

    Pete has an agenda too, to make Pete look good so that people will praise him. Unlike Pete, you will correct one of your posts if it is pointed out that something you have stated in an effort to try and educate others is incorrect or misrepresented in some manner. Your goal is truly to relay correct information. That is my goal as well, when it comes to that kind of thing.

    Where would it go?

    What if Perko wanted one too?

    What if 5 others wanted one?

    What if 30 others wanted one?

    What if everyone wanted one?


    Kwick has a Kwick Tips area in his for sale area because of his expertise, the amount of products he has designed for the ZRX, and the amount he has given back to this board and given to the members of this board.

    This is all rhetorical, I have no interest in having a discussion about it, but you can have fun talking about it.


    In the famous word of you know who, this will be my last post in this thread.

    Re: I would like my own forum, please.

    So your position now is to push things because you feel its unfair instead of just letting it go again , So what ? Now your going to start a campaign on a hate Kwick rally to shut him down put him out of business on this board Or fight with the Prez & Mods to FORCE them to hold a heavier hand over all of us then they do now

    If you people dont like someone block him dont answer his post dont order his parts geeezzz

    I didnt get all freaked out because others got to post in a for sale thread & I got in trouble for it
    I foresee your future

    And discussion of dog allergies is related how? That out of left field, off topic posted wasnít deleted. Whereas my answer to a question you asked ME that pertained to slipper clutches that in no way would have effected your sale of slipper clutches was deleted.

    Now that I am aware of the purpose of your article post (as a promotion to you selling slipper clutches instead of an actual discussion on slipper clutches), Iíve added a post to your thread that might help clear that up.
