A Funny Thing Happened On My Way To Deleting The Forums

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 27

Does anyone use the forums anymore?  If so I will keep them, if not, I think they might go during some new years cleaning I am going to be doing soon?

Make your case in the comments.

Winners Of Forum Contest

Written by Boston Biker on Apr 09

A while ago I mentioned that I would be giving prizes to the first 20 people that tried out the forum. Well I am happy to report that the brave testers did a great job, gave some good feedback, and some good suggestions for future improvements, and because we didn’t quite get to 20, I have decided to give everyone who tested them out a prize.

So the winners are the following:

TurkeyWatch
CorkScrew
William Fur
Dan
Alex Ose
Justin

You will all be getting a 50% off coupon for one non-silver custom head badge, or custom u-lock badge. Just email me if you are one of these people and we can work out the details.

Thanks for your help!

Forum Testing Contest

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 26

Attention brave testers, I need some people to try out the new forums, in return I will bribe reward you with prizes!

The first 20 people who post something in the forum will be entered into a raffle. In this raffle I will be giving away some bike books and other bike stuff. Pretty good prize for just typing some stuff into a box!

The only rules are that you must try to test all the features of the forum, and it has to be a real discussion, none of that “this is a test” post business.

So go to it, the contest runs till the end of this week Friday at 5pm.

Post in this comment thread with any problems/feedback you might have with the forums.

New Forums!

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 25

Just integrated the old forums into the main site…this should come with several benefits, namely if you already have a user account you should now have a forum account (no more double sign up), and it should just work better.

The old forums are going to be shut down in a couple weeks, you can find them here. If there is anything you need from over there I would suggest you get it soon.

The new forums are here. You can also get to it from the link at the top of the page.

The only bad thing of the process is that I was only able to rescue some of the previous posts. Most of the forum simply will not move over…so this just means you can now fill the forums with all new conversation!

Test it out and let me know if things are broken.

Thanks
