New here

Been lurking for a while. Just got an account today. I'm on all kinds of forums for all kinds of interests that I have, but this is by far the strangest I've ever seen on many levels.

First off, it seems to have an interface from about 2002.

Secondly, I've never been on a forum where reCAPTCHA verification was mandated for every post (maybe because I'm new?).

Thirdly, it seems the Off-Topic forum is a place where people simply argue, and appears to be dominated by a couple of old, angry, conservative, dull-normal white men (though those who aren't that, and who argue with the aforementioned stupidity are greatly appreciated by this girl).

All said, this is a great resource. I've learned a lot, and I wanted to make a couple of posts to say "hi".(edited)

Click "View Flat" and itll read more like a normal forum.

Re: New here

You're spot on with your description of the off-topic forum

Re: New here

Not sure what you mean. Given that the site is responsive to mobile screen sizes it’s pretty modern. I’m guessing the other forums you visit have a lot of features and clutter that I leave off here. It’s simple, but it works well.

As for the reCAPTCHA, yes, that’s just because you’re new. I added that a while ago to fight off some really bad spamming that was happening. I can probably relax it now, thanks for the nudge to revisit that.

Also, welcome! I hope you find the site useful.

My critique may have been overly-pedantic. All in all, any small idiosyncrasies are overshadowed by the sheer awesomeness of this site.

Thanks for being here, Moped Army! :)(edited)

Personally I avoided using MA for the first 4 years or so that I had a moped since I didn't know it had a flat view. I found the default view way too hard to use and just never used the site because of it.

Never angry, just conservative, which you take offense to I take it? AOC your hero? Or Bernie? He's old and dull.....Ha!

Never dull, as I'll log more miles and trips than you ever will, I'll bet. You trying to take over agitating since a certain one has been absent? LOL!

Am I to assume that you are in charge of the Off-Topic forum, Mr. Don Ohio? Sure seems as though you post the most, and come off as being very opinionated. Also, you definitely appear to be angry and bit dull.(edited)

Re: New here

Never angry, but I DO laugh at you and your ilk a lot. LOL!

What is my ilk, Mr. Don Ohio?

EDIT: Actually, never mind. you are a troll, and I will no longer engage with you. Have a nice life.(edited)

Your ilk is who you run with...………...who you agree with...…..whom you are likened to. Didn't they teach you that in English class?

Here you go,Paola!

I'm not THAT pretty Chinarelli, but at least INSIDE I'm not a beast. Hey, she called out `old, dull, angry and stupid white men' to begin with. Wants to pick a fight first off on the forum? LOL!

FYI: the site was changed a while ago so that flat view is now the default for new users. In fact threaded view is no longer an option you can select site wide, it must be selected for each thread individually. You might not have realize that because you were already using flat view. I heard the feedback and changed it so the flat view is the primary view now.

Here’s a post from last September with detailed information about this change: https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/read.php?1,4221202

1) Flat view is critical. Otherwise, I actually really appreciate the format of this site as opposed to many other forums, none of the obnoxious signatures and emoji gifs, username pics with avatars nor big fat blocks for each post etc. It's simple and rather elegant. I prefer its 2002 style and think it's aged a lot better than the 2008 style format everyone else still uses.

2) you shouldn't need verification for posts if you're signed into an account. maybe you need to verify your account?

3) Yeah, it wasn't always that way, it used to be a place full of offbeat humor and discussions about silly little motorcykes and scooters that weren't mopeds. but the dull feisty fussy few were so prolific, and the argumentative state of really all forums and online discussions over the past few years so dominant, that it's now all that's left of off-topic. I'm sad to see it so quickly recognized by newcomers.

Re: New here

yeah its too bad that a few loudmouth turds spoil the punchbowl but good on you for recognizing that. most folks around here are pretty good natured but its tough to keep up with the couple old guys on welfare that have nothing better to do than sit around and post drivel online all day.

Re: New here

You really can't blame dumb Don for being angry and dull, he still eats paste. No one here can beat the ramblings a 70 year old white man with the mind of a toddler.

Re: New here

For those who have, thanks for the welcome.

For those who have trolled me already, I have nothing for you.

Something tells me this page has some drama that proceeds me, and that some people here have a history of being stupid:

You saying butterflies can't fly above a wall? LOL! Build the wall...……..the butterflies will be fine..
