I completely agree.

Yep! I am sure I have posted something in the wrong place a time or many because all of the different places to post. I go by the old rule of KISS Keep It Simple Stupid!

Not sure what kind of work this makes for the moderators and forum hosts but I think it is not a bad Idea yeah we have a forum for just about everything else.

No worries, we move them for you. It's practically a full time job at times.

If a new forum is what you guys really want, we will bug v-scope to make it happen. We'll be watching the voting

there is one other link i would like to have up for us. we are all like a big brotherhood . in some way like a big bike club. in most bike clubs there is a place for all their fallin' friends like a RIP or wall of honor. do to the resent loss of one of our own on monday last week i feel like we should have a spot for all of us to pay our respect to them. i would like to set a spot on our forum for our fallin' friends. i would like to make it where we all could help their families out with the hight cost of putting someone to rest. **** with all of us on here i think if we all gave a dollar to their families using paypal would help them out. what do yall think? it is just a thought. it is just another way to show are appreciation to the brotherhood we have all learned to love.

I think the 'Trade' forum idea has some traction with some members so I think we should keep this Poll going awhile longer and see if more members might post their helpful comments.

The other ideas being mixed-in here certainly have some traction too, but they are dragging the conversation away from this Poll topic. So after we resolve this task we can pick-up on the other ideas in separate Polls if you want. In the meantime someone might want to start a separate conversation topic about each one of those other ideas, but please hold off starting more Poll threads because a Poll needs a clear question to be asked and understanding the whole question 'from both sides' requires a conversation first!

I'm not wanting to direct traffic here, its not my Poll. But I know it will be helpful if the Poll information is useable for making decisions in this specific question. Is that cool?

Maybe we should have a separate forum for "Free" stuff too... So people won't get confused and try to pay...

If I have some thing to sell/trade, I know that all i have to do is throw up my post, and all will find it as its the only place to post it. Having to coordinate this with multiple locations (did i read this one or that one...did i post my sale item here or there...??!?) would give me an irritation headache...

theres my $0.07 cents worth!
I agree. Simple & Effective.

There is not a lot of participation here.
I don't think it is prudent to let 50 or so members,( or 1/2 that) speak for a membership of thousands.
Hopefully you will look at the commentary and strength of the points made and not just numbers.
Only a random few have stumbled upon this thread.
Hopefully some uncommon sense will prevail here.
