Thread: Threads that should be articles

  1. #21
    I've been gone for a while for two reasons.

    1) I felt I had gone over most of what interested me.

    2) Seemed like too many threads went out of control. I remember one thread someone was looking for some rudimentary help and it turned into a discussion on MotoGP body position. New topic should always be a new thread.

    What BBO facebook page are you looking at? I don't see that much on the facebook page for BBO.

    Unless you're talking about their individual pages??

    The BBO facebook page where members here post there and avoid posting here is the one I am looking at.

    Surely you refer to the posts with 2 comments, 36 comments, and 5 comments respectively? Yes, those posts.

    The one with 36 (now 50) are by 6 or 7 people, I believe, to be clear.

    But 1 active post over that span of a timeframe? For me, it doesn't say the fb page replaced here...or that it takes away from traffic here.

    But....data is great. We can all interpret it different ways.

    This is not the only site to suffer traffic due to the elephant in the room. Many sites are in the same boat.
    Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens.

    Especially when the morphing goes soooo far away from "rudimentary help". I understand we have plenty of experienced, even awe-inspiring riders here, but at times the morphing reads like grand standing. As impressive as the talents are, if target audience is beginner, the advice should reflect that.

    Interpret it any way you like, it doesn't change the fact I claimed in my original post: convince the members here that don't post here that are posting there --- as frequently or infrequently as you choose to interpret it --- to start posting here again.

    I agree. It basically cannibalizes each platform.
