    Weeeird, totally a golf cart :)
    love how Elon launched the biggest ever rocket
    could bring cargo to mars
    can land/reuse its primary/biggest stage
    ... and he launches his personal roadster.

    “I fucking hate this shop, I had them replace a starter like a month ago,
    They only charged me $100, but now the car won’t start all the time, I’m pissed”
    -does it work turn over when it “won’t start”?
    ” Yea, it tries, it definitely turns over”
    -then it’s not the starter...
    ”yea but they must’ve messed around in there”
    -no, no they didn’t
    “but it won’t start!”
    -they did it over a month ago, how many miles are on the car?
    “It’s a Ford, about 250,000 miles”
    -............

    customers are the worst part of wrenching

    How to revive this forum you two? Is it possible? Are forums a thing of the past?...or just the FB forum?

    MySpace also didn’t have a “like” button...

    ive found snowblower forums that are amusingly active though :p

    idk, I like reading ride stories, ride spots, cops, blood.
    Different riders I guess,
    dont know what the Facebook one is like

    because I think we’ve all eaten pavement to bother searching the forum

    I eat pavement for lunch!!! =/

    What if there was incentive to add content. A "like" button as the tally keeper. If a post, or reply gets 1 trillion likes that user gets a set of wheels, or deck, or complete?

    Of course, if I thought the forum could survive only to allow you, Corey, myself and the occasional OG visitor like TioEmm or Russ to exchange, I guess I wouldn't complain. i just don't think it will survive much longer without activity, but who knows.

    Not I.

    Since that ^ post
    and subliminally it might say, dudes, go bord!

    guess it’d Be fun to troll these people,

    Some kind of incentive to post here isn't a bad idea to garner more interest.

    I think forums are far superior to facebook in the way they organize content, and encourage more people to talk about it. One thing I think that is super lame about facebook is the like button. People just hit that and move on, most people wont comment. You can't do that in a forum, if you want to show your appreciation for a piece of content you have to actually comment on it. Because the facebook like button type interaction has become so popular, I think people are generally less inclined to go to a forum to comment.

    The freebord facebook group doesn't feel anything like this forum used to. It feels very disconnected to me, lots of new people that have no idea of the history or how tight the community used to be. Some OG's are on there but I would say most don't post anything.

    I just got an idea that we could try. I've been wanting to do a personal giveaway contest. What I had in mind was a spin in place contest, to give away a free set of wheels and bearings to whoever does it best. So yeah, basically whoever can do a flatground spin the smoothest, most spins, and stay closest to the original starting position would win. I could post it on facebook, but make the only way to submit to the contest is by posting their video on the forum in a particular thread. Not sure if wheels/bearing combo would be enough incentive, but what do you all think about that?

    Remember the haiku for a whole free freebord? :p

    Probably impossible but, a “sign in with Facebook” option like many other sites

    And it’s up to over 250 views....
    that’d be a lot of posts to read.

    if anyone wants to say anything
    we really don’t bite... unless you do :p
    its good back and forth.
    theres not that immediate approval but you can think that some riders,
    that have also bit it hard,
    Are smiling, understanding, seething, or any other.
    and you can say pretty stupid things,
    without your mother questioning your sanity,
    your girlfriend leaving you,
    Or your boss taking away your insurance,
    Because,
    who checks the forum
