I absolutely agree that you should keep registration open if at all possible. We dont need elitism in BMX...

most of the decent members on here were knobs when they first joined. now they're entartaining, some are even intersting. some are even admins.


I know I was.

You guys who want closed registration need to get bent.  What if it was closed before you joined?  For all the bad members, we usually get at least 3 or 4 great members a month.  Think of all the funny and entertaining people who have joined within the last 6 months.  Most of the idiots will post a few times, get reamed, and either fall in line or go back to another inferior message board talking shit about BG.  Its worked that way for years.

I love bikeguide. I know i'm a noob but I do a lot of reading and it's the only place I can have a good laugh, learn stuff, see new parts, see people bikes, pictures, etc. I think it's awesome just how it is. Plus every forum has idiots, it doesn't seem to have much correlation to a join date.

we need a skill testing question, that is required to be answered in paragraph form with proper grammar prior to being allowed to post.

That would rule out 85% of the current "good" members that are on here, though. However, I do always cringe at your/you're.

Sheepdong just wants to be cool like bmxboard.

This website is both a great service to the bmx industry, and a great drain on humanity as a whole. Stupid people+stupid people= stupid, stupid people.

Everyone was a noob at one time. I don't see closing registration a good idea at all. Seems like there is too much snobbery foing round if people are suggesting that.

probably, but if you banned him, he would put the pieces together and find out it was actually bikeguide working in conjunction with the CIA.  The government sees that alaskan knows whats really going on in this country and theyve been trying to shut him up.
