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.
uncommom sense...huh...hahahaha - thought that we had that in bucket loads

we don't need common sense when we got laws now do we

To enhance readership and reply comments I've clarified the thread Title to: Member Poll on Proposed 'For Trade' Forum

My opinion on the reply post numbers is simple. This is an international forum and to a great extent common sense is learned socially so what's sensible in one place may be acceptable elsewhere meaning its not the forum's place to stomp on member ideas on that basis. As always is the case everywhere, not just here, those who log-in and participate often have the opportunity to make their own case for change. Those who log-in less often are less effected and those who seldom visit are seldom effected, so from that view those who participate less also have less opportunity to make their own case for change. I suppose members can email members who haven't logged-in for awhile, but there's not much the forum can do.

In the middle of all this, please remember this isn't really a vote its a Poll. The decision to add this forum would then be subjected to moderator's looking at everything that has been said and trying to determine what is best for those who show up and participate regularly. To do anything else is guesswork and we don't know how those absent would comment. So as far as the forum is concerned none of us have decided anything yet.

Speaking only for myself I believe we want to encourage as many views on this topic to be posted as possible and we don't want to tell people what to say. This is a biker forum, we are individuals, people here can decide for themselves if the Trades forum would make their lives easier or more time-consuming and they can either post up or stay silent. Their choices. No worries.

Is that thousands of active members that regularly participate in the forum? Are you proposing that the Moderators wait until 50, or 500, or X number of other members "stumble" upon this thread and participate? How long should they wait before someone will complain that they are not acknowledging memberís requests in an appropriate time frame?

By the replies the Mods have posted, they are paying attention to the commentary and not just the numbers.

"Hopefully some uncommon sense will prevail here." What about this thread calls for that statement?

The poll runs until the 28th IMO anything can happen its all up to members making the case for what they personally want and leaving it to others to make their own case.

Who exactly are we making a case against? Everytime I have ever spoken with Admin about subject matter on this forum they have made it clear to me that the moderators pretty much run this forum in reguards to site content of this nature.

The content is already allowed. This is a question of where to put it.

Put it in the market place. I thought this was about whether or not members wanted a trade section???

By the replies the Mods have posted, they are paying attention to the commentary and not just the numbers. Actually Sang's comment prior to my post said he would watch the voting and didn't mention the commentary. I noticed much of the voting ( without explanation or comments) seemed to be adding up opposite to the commentary. Hence, my comment.



"Hopefully some uncommon sense will prevail here." What about this thread calls for that statement? In case you haven't noticed , society in general and my personal hope called for that statement. As Tomba mentioned above and certainly in my experience there are way too many decisions made , and laws decreed on the basis of the desires of a few that achieve results which are very impractical and sometimes dangerous.
Hi Sherriism. Welcome to the forum! Really !
