Default CN Forum: Rise & Fall

When I registered on these board, back in October 2009, I found this forum interesting with knowledgeable posters, who - even though there was already some trolling on the "clinic" - were interested in EACH & EVERY race of the calendar.

What do I see now?

We are in November and all we have on the PRR section is a 255 reply thread of trolling about Bore de France, which is to happen ... next July.

And a video thread, which is only meant for stages, so for GT.

+ a few fanboy threads.

CN Forum : Quo Vadis?

This is really worse than Velo-Club. I mean. How could the standard get so low?

Anyone to give me Spanish lessons? I might consider registering on Forodeciclismo.

What's wrong with a video thread? It gives us some racing to watch in the off season where there isn't any. Plus the only fanboy thread is the Contador one, in the other ones that could be considered fanboy threads there is actually some real discussion that happens.

It's off season for most followers of the sport. I think we can all relax and enjoy the forum when it suits us. Not sure what the point of this thread really is.

Yeah there's not alot going on, but just as busy in the road racing forum was this thread, which basically is basically the quintessential thread for those who 'care about each and every race'. So I think you're selectively ignoring some things here.

Well, firstly it is November. This is a rather quiet part of the season. Secondly, I moved over to Velorooms for a while. It had some nice aspects, but it became a heavily over-regulated forum that is not remotely fun at all. Some of the people on their carried on like teenage girls which is why I left. I have come back to this forum and I am absolutely enjoying my time back on here. I have not been on the forums as much as past years, but I hope that will change next year.

In conclusion, don't take for granted what a enjoyable forum this is.

I post over there, there is virtually no moderation. You left because you got warned for constantly starting arguments in their chatroom, people threatened to leave unless you got banned. And then you got banned

what a pathetic forum when the staff bans some1 because other members threaten to leave if he doesn't get banned and not because they actually had a reason to do it.

Pff pathetic forum it is a great forum. It is friendly and the moderators try to moderate in a friendly way. Way different and way better than here. And by the way Afrank in the Alberto thread there is also discussion about serious things.
