I'll be down Daytona way next bike week. Maybe we can hook up for a beer.

I'm with Super Sherpa on this one. It isn't that the site is hard to figure out, but for some reason it's become much less communal than it was. I used to be happy to pay $11.94 a year, and I'd check in twice a day to see what the MOrons were thinking and chirp in my own comments, now I come by once a week, and it's just not that interesting. I don't think for a minute that anyone would miss me here, but my money may be another story. And I don't get the Premium/Founding/Moderator crap either. I've been a paying member since? 01? Am I premium, founding, or just piddling? Yeah, don't answer that.

I'm not enamored with the MO V2.0 either; I just hit the "New Posts" button and see what's been posted lately.

"They" really screwed the pooch with the "upgrade". Many, many other sites have a much simpler interface.

I don't know if they are gone or if they don't post anymore, but there are several characters I've not seen in a while. A couple of them I don't miss at all, but still...

And what are "Trackbacks, Pingbacks and Refbacks?"

I suggest a "Private Message Waiting" flag at login. I keep forgetting to check.

I really enjoyed the belittling reponses that BrowningBAR, Seruzawa, and Longride posted to SherpaSuper’s complaint about the new MO website.

I can see that MO is on its way to enjoying the kind of success typically enjoyed by businesses that know what’s best for their customers, irrespective of what their customers want. Clearly, any customer that doesn’t like the new format is a Luddite that MO can do without.

Lotsa’ luck, guys.

I can't even pronounce "Luddite", let-alone know what one is, and here you go flingin' that accusation around like these people are afraid of change and are anarchists or somethin'.........

Sorry, 'Super' Bill, but I offered the same guy help with navigation and offered to show him the tools that were available here. He didn't have a 'complaint' as much as he was bytching out loud. I offered him help, but I guess nothing but a re-design will satisfy some. For those people, I guess it's better to leave than stay. I doubt the site is going to change, so either learn how it works or leave I guess.
