Most people think it's a maintenance forum. If we really need a Premium Members only forum:confused: name it as such.

Does anyone actually browse the forum by category? I just look at subscribed threads and new postings. I don't pay much attention to where they're posted.

I'm the same.
You would not see posts there because you are not a Premium member. People who post tech questions there can't get help from the general membership.

Pat, with you being the resident Guru who always responds to us in the general section of the forum I would wonder why Premium members would even feel the need to have their own personal section to solve mechanical issues with the Vee-Wee.

And, apart from the fact that you already have all the answers, I would have thought posting to the broader Stromtrooper community would be more likely to solve any problems rather than limiting the number of people who can read of the issue with the bike.

Personally, when I read of any issues posted by others, the first thing I go looking for in the thread is your response to the problem.

Thanks for all the information and help you provide on this forum Pat. :thumbup:

Yep. That's how I do it. I start at the top and work my way down, skipping the categories I am not interested in.

I agree with Greywolf, it's kind of confusing.

I'd like to see a complete overhaul of the entire forum structure. Like most things it's grown over time and what may have been appropriate once is probably no longer the best way.
Some of the things I would like to do;

Have an introduction area where everybody must post the first time. This will reduce the spam posts that go into strange forums.
Overhaul the entire Maintenance and Farkles section to make the categories
more self explanatory for people looking for information.
Overhaul the Marketplace for the same reasons.
Add an area for discussion and queries about clothing and non motorcycle accessories.
Change and consolidate some of the regional and special interest areas.
Kill Spank, it's only a vehicle for one person to post pornography nobody else posts there regularly.

The problem is that is a massive undertaking as far as getting posts shifted to the correct place is concerned and I suspect that unless somebody is prepared to allow a large amount of time and thought and skill in making changes they just aren't going to happen.

Hey now! It is also a place where those who don't post often in public can let off a little steam in the privacy of a closed section of the forum!
BTW, K1W1 Merry Christmas and I hope all is well.
