What I might do if I ran mopedarmy.com

Jack Rutherford /

I've noticed the more ubiquitous presence of a new helpful administrator which got me thinking about what more could be done in that direction.

These are just suggestions and some may not be good but hey, it's food for thought.

I used to and, still occasionally, visit mytractorforum.com. I thought they had a good system. They had an ad-free site for members who paid something like $20 a year (fairly nominal amount). If you didn't want to become a member, you were subject to ads. I thought $20 or whatever was a bargain rather than have ads in between each post of a thread. And anyone who has ever used this site has probably received $20 a year in value. Hell if you just sell something here, you've gotten some value.

Now to expand on that system. Take the money from that and "hire" several administrators. Maybe you pay them $300 a year. I know, it's not much but hey it's a few hundred a year. Their job would mainly be to help the newer visitors with the same issues that come up time and time again. The administrators could either have canned responses for the frequently asked questions or they create wiki pages or through their help, model posts have been created that can be a constant reference source. So they would basically say, "Oh you want to create a reliable 45 mph Moby, well here are the basics and go to this page for the whole story."

Hell, you could even provide basic guidance to the scooter questions instead of go fark yourself and find the right forum. People who ride scooters have also been known to own mopeds.

Anyway, it would eliminate a lot of the bashing on people that can't search the site and create a better overall site and experience. It would also promote complete threads. Even if you search the site, most threads on a subject are incomplete.

anyhow, my 2 cents - I'm sure I'll get roasted so let the ass-kicking commence . . .

I'm sure many prefer chaos. (edited)

I think we should ditch mopeds and become tractorarmy.com.

I stopped reading at the $20 part. The majority of people here do not have extra monies for this and rather buy parts for their mopeds. : ) (edited)

Re: What I might do if I ran mopedarmy.com

The way I read that you would not have to pay, if you did just no ads, but the ads here are not bad at all.

I'll never understand people who are just natural born administrators...

However a lot of peeps spend their monies on lots of expensive parts that really don't help. My biggest peve is huge, gas wasting carbs on a street bike. Most of the time they're hard to tune, decrease throttle response, need expensive mounting and waste gobs of gas. My 2 cents

Re: What I might do if I ran mopedarmy.com

I look at scooters and mopeds to be like cousins or brothers I have owned both mopeds are hard to find where I live so are vintage scooters I rode Honda elites only 125,150,250 they were a lot of fun now I have a 05 Tomos a35 I don't know why some people bash scooters. Hey you do got a good idea I think but charging for membership not really a great idea as I'm sure some people would gladly volunteer to be an admin and a lot of people would not want to pay the fee and there for we would loose members or not get as many new members I hate the ones that join just to ask 1 question and never return it would stop a lot of that though.

Sure - 20$ to get trolled constantly sounds like a deal.

Here is a idea - everyone pays 300$ a year and that money is divided among the people who actually attempt to make useful suggestions while the trolls get a day deducted from their 'year subscription' for each spammy or troll post.

Or just leave it the way it is and use ad blockers to rid the banners or whatever advertising is bothering you - or just cope with the ads and ignore them.

Re: What I might do if I ran mopedarmy.com

“Wouldn’t get trolled if blah blah blah”

Blame the whole world and punish us all for you being villianized and outcast in your own community. Just keep the trend going right? You treat people like shit and so shall you be treated... you were an asshole and got wiped clean. A proverbial piece of shit that was eventually stepped on. Now you take to the moped internet for slow burning troll justice? Modern day Wyatt Earp up in here, eh. Joy for us all!

Advocation and the acceptance of events are two totally separate things, fucking clown.
