    The giving help thread...

    So I challenge you to post up links to other areas of the forums in which you help a newb, give advice to other members with a question, give input on a component or answer a question someone has, with good intentions.

    Basically use this thread to link for what you do to help the site besides hang out in OC. If you don't want to participate that's cool too. This might help the onlookers that venture into OC and think we all just chill in here or give each other reach arounds. It's for the good of the forums and OC.

    For example:
    Mountain Biking Skills Videos

    Most recently....

    BTW you can use this thread to + people as well for their help on the site compared to the "other" thread in OC. At least in this thread, the post with link will have the proof for the +. Anyone else catching on to this!?!

    Damn straight, at least this thread will keep the Admin, some Mods, and naysayers off our backs in the OC. Which leads us to that mystical creature they just tried to kill.

    This is a good idea. Here are a few threads I started that people seemed to have enjoyed:

    Why not express vulnerability?
    The cutting room floor--a home for your worst videos

    One from the WI/MN regional forum (that doesn't get much traffic)
    Lebanon Hills -- wonderful experience

    One for the general bike culture
    Ode to Dr Seuss

    While this one is about my sons, it seemed to stir quite a bit of interest from those that read it

    Exactly. So why do we need a thread about it?

    This is a thread series I started in AZ mebbe 2 yrs ago, borrowing from other forums. I've had to give it a kick or carry it some times, but its developed a life of its own now and I'm glad to say its a popular topic.

    AZ Photo Friday - Dec. 21st - End of the world edition

    So every Friday in AZ you should seem some pics from around our awesome state that includes all manner of desert terrain in Phx and Tucson, high-desert in Prescott, aspen and pines and gnarly DHs in Flagstaff, the White Mtns, and the red rocks in Sedonuts.

    True and why....

    True people know that we contribute. Why not make it apparent especially in OC since some people think they should get rid of it, or we "hang out" in here, create rep threads...and so on. Speaking of so, not knocking that thread but, how does one actually earn rep with out pissing everyone off? By contributing, helping. All of us have been in one of "those" threads but the whole rep system was redone because of our rep. Our rep still higher than most.

    It helps lower rep members on the site grow. Especially those who hang out in subforums helping. "So" "what" "would" be a good idea instead of repping each other for the sake of it? How about linking a post "You" made to help the forum/forum members out. Isn't that how one should get rep? This also includes, great pics so I on. I really should not have to go into what should or shouldn't be counted as rep, hence the recalculation of rep in the first place.....

    This way the admin can't say they are just circle repping each other for no point. If they feel this thread is "that" way they can bin it by all means. Some of you and myself would rather grow in rep with something behind it with an actual worthy thread of gaining rep to give to others than posting in circle rep threads. So why come into here and complain about it when I tried to come up with a solution to make everyone happy. Again if you don't want to contribute then by all means don't.

    So you say this is a circle rep thread then? How? It will give you links to something, someone posted outside of OC to rep that you did for the good of the forums. Sure you can rep in OC but that's where the problem started in the first place this time around. So why not fix it for the good of the forums so at least we grow to help others grow on the forums.

    This might seem like I'm singling you two out but this is for everyone reading this thread. They can recalculate the system or get rid of it. Until then, I will post LULZ, advice, help where I can and rep as many people as I can worthy of rep. If someone else has a better idea on how to increase everyone without everyone on this site having a pissy fit over "it" then by all means lay down your epic awesome idea in OC on how to help the system help us. I took time off because I for one knew of the shlt storm coming after the above events occurred on "that" day would bring. It's still going on some threads. So I tried to come up with a solution to the problem. I'm sure there are typos but I wanted to get this out there before I forget what the hell I was going to say before the morning.

    It's actually quite simple. Help this thread to help others to help you or GTFO

    /long lecture/

    Please do not quote this post....
    No joking, it will take up space and if you do just quote the first sentence. I will be sure to neg you if you think being a smartass by quoting this whole post.

    Carry on....
