    What's your biggest MTBR peeve?

    Hey, it's a free site, I know.

    But post yer b!tches about it here anyways.

    My big problem is after posting a response to a post, it takes me to see what I just posted. I don't wanna go there, I want to go back to where I was in the thread!

    Cheese & rice, got all muddy.
    Mountain Biking Is Not A Crime stickers, free! (You pay postage. PM me for details.)

    Rep system. Allows people to be anonymous trolls with no repercussions.

    I'm not saying that you personally do this but...

    people who do not read the complete thread before posting and respond to a post that has been already answered or is completely stale. Like suggesting what the OP should buy XXX product after the OP has already made a decision and already bought either XXX or YYY product.

    "Hybrid Mode" post display.

    I hate that it's default in Hybrid Mode, since I like the Linear mode.

    Coming from founding and running one of the top US forums for another sport I can probably comment a little bit.

    #1. I've found the page load in general is slow and the pages are pulling various ads, code and banners and as the pages (in the forum) load it "steps" down the page a little bit and it seems to always do it twice in succession as the page loads. Which means if you load the "NorCal" forum (for example) , and you see a topic that interests you, if you try to click on it too soon, chances are goods you'll be sent to the next topic down, as the page is loading slow and by the time it registers your click, the page formatting has changed, so your click is misread.

    #2. It's running vBulletin, which has some advantages I suppose over PhpBB, but PhpBB is faster, can be much more stylish (depending on who the webmaster is and their skills, is less clunky and is open-source. The open-source nature provides for loads of cool mods as well.

    The OP said:

    "My big problem is after posting a response to a post, it takes me to see what I just posted. I don't wanna go there, I want to go back to where I was in the thread!"

    PhpBB will always display two options after posting: 1. Take me back the topic I just posted in. 2. Take me back to the forum the topic is in.

    #3. Sorry, but the whole 'rep' and 'rep power' thing is just gay. We do ranks which simply give credit to a users participation which is based on their post count, nothing more. The reasoning is that if someone is a frequent user/poster, chances are good they add usefulness, knowledge, and participation to the forum. It's unlikely that someone who has a high post count will not have much to offer. You're shouldn't be competing with other users on the quality of helpfulness of posts, people should be smart enough to figure out themselves if something is funny, helpful or useful, etc. Sorry, it's dumb.

    That's about it, I'm happy to have the resource and appreciate the forum.

    The color scheme of the bars at the top is the same as facebook. So at work, even when I'm innocently on mtbr, which isn't frowned upon because no one knows what it is, everyone thinks I'm on facebook.

    Here's a real one. Vague post titles. Like:

    Bay Area.

    Hikers.

    Need Advice.

    Specialized.

    Auburn.

    Downieville.

    Seriously, people. Put a subject and a predicate together and build a cohesive statement. Otherwise, I'm not even interested in clicking to try and figure out whether you're asking a question, telling a story, or just determining that you have Tourettes.

    This is the first forum I've been on where you can rep or neg rep people without identity.

    Although I felt special today.. I got my first neg rep

    Hmm, all this time I thought his handle was “Snowjinky”. I mean, if you’re going to leave out vowels, go figure some retard is going to get it all wrong, because obviously “Snowjanky” makes no sense, and “Snowjunky” would imply he’s slamming 8-gram rocks because he’s got one gear… yet I never see him post in the Singlespeed forums.

    Hi Folks,

    IMHO all rep given, positive or negative, should automatically have the user ID associated with it.

    Along that line requiring the use of real names would encourage civil discourse. In the real world think of the the kind of people who hide behind an alias.

    Thanks,

    Michael
