    Actually I'm pretty serious.
    Often the first thing you see when you log in it use the Trending Topics, Todays Posts or New Topics is one of the armageddon threads. If you are newcomer you could be forgiven for thinking this was a political/world news forum not a dirtbike forum.
    We want to encourage dirtbike and other motorcycle discussion, when the most seen threads are otherwise we need to think about it.

          The answer is quite straightforward - Scrap the Off Track Talk section altogether - along with the majority of your traffic.
          Or perhaps you'd like to examine all contributions prior to posting?

          As opposed to others that you dont care to name?

            Well people would need to start and contribute to bike related threads wouldn't they.

            • Ya would not dream about it.............the dozer ends up at my front gate saving me a motsa in transport and time walking it in and it is too wet to do what I want........................what a piss offfffffff.. Ahh well at least I have managed to open up some areas but it is far too wet for other things........up until now I have never seen a 33 ton dozer moving without the tracks turning but did yesterday, holy shit I thought he was gone for all money but he managed to stop it somehow before it went over the edge of the gully

                So thats it eh? DBW is to become a one dimensional site with no sense of humour?
                Nah .... thats a bit harsh. Perhaps an administratively approved sense of humour might be tolerated in small doses.

                • Craigy & Spac.. I politely suggest that you don't cut-off DBW's nose to-spite DBW's face... Else I'll be gone too.
                  From my pov... DBW is a/our site/whereby we/each have a common interest & passion.. That being Trail bikes.

                  3/5 of my-most recent-posts have directly related to-our DBW Trail Bike Riding... Admittedly the next 5/5 didn't.
                  I more-often offer-humble input-experience than-brag about past-conquest... In-lieu of any/actual Armageddon.

                  Believe it or not: Our entire-whole-lives don't revolve around Dirt Bikes.. However, we-share our-common-soul.
                  I do wish/desire DBW does-contain bike-input; yet I also wish/hope our DBWers can-vent whatever their whim.

                  Edit: I guess what I'm saying here is: Don't wipe Armageddon posts: In hope-of dirt-bike-posts more-prevalent.
                  Rather: Encourage more dirt bike related content so we have both: Lest I remind yoose; Keg & Drew did-write.

                    Sad, but true.
                    I'm guessing moderating a dozen posts per day must be too hard.

                    • Lots of media and government department rely on the information here[asio thing] generally government departments have no idea what goes on in your minds or your world, lot of the info here is way above anything discussed in parliament, messing with it ,is a negative situation .

                          I doubt it too hairy, which leaves us with the more likely scenario that it's simply moderators wanting to control what people talk about on DBW.

                          It's their site so they're welcome to f*ck it up however they like.

                          • Basically, we’re trying to keep the ratio of off topic to on topic threads below a certain threshold.

                            The more decent threads/posts about dirt bikes we have, the more we are happy to have threads/posts about things other than dirt bikes.

                            Edit: we recognise that off topic stuff is often useful and interesting and a significant part of what is keeping the site ticking over.
                            There is no desire to remove the OT section.

                            I am honestly surprised that people have reacted this strongly to (what appeared to be) a mild comment about keeping things in check.

                            Personally, I have a lot going on in my life right now and am struggling to focus on anything much.
                            Certainly I am not riding anywhere near as much as I want to, so the normal stream of content that I might post up is pretty dry right now.
                            I still enjoy being part of this community, even on its quietest days.

                              As others have pointed out, the key to your happiness lies in encouraging dirtbike posts. I cant help suggest how you might do this.

                              It was a mild(ish) comment about random censorship by one with the means to make it happen.
