You can criticize this forum for a lot, but man am I glad those stupid posts are deleted. Here is why:
They do not contribute.
Yes there is a lot of "pimping" on this forum, but most of the Switch posts are only distracting. If they had been contributing in the same way that kite-designer Bill was in a thread, then no problem, but most of them are in form of
someone asking for advice between two specific kites..not switch, and then a switch rider comes in " think out of the box and switch".."I have switched will you?" etc. etc...coming up with the same regurgitated stuff that most new brands have been through as if it was new. Build by riders for riders...etc.
The point is that if you contribute to the forum constructively then I am sure Toby will let the posts stay. If they are advertisements just to fill your teamrider quota as per the team rider policy at Switch then it might be deleted.
Totally gay behaviour! I wouldn't be seen dead dangling under my kite like thatDr_Rosen wrote:I recommend deleting this post immediately !!
But then again, that would probably be to discriminate Gay behaviour
Actually I think you underestimate the usersJdizzle wrote: Snip...
Dude, over 90% of the posts I see on here are what you describe as 'not contributing'. Why discriminate? People are always harping on about how good their kites are...
Contributing to what exactly anyway? This forum is only a bit of entertainment for people, who cares? You?
I do agree with you mate, it is pretty shameless plugging! But this forum is full of it! Take Epic for example, I used to get so sick of their posts...but to be fair Dimitri has toned it down a lot recently!tautologies wrote:Well, no I am not particularly impacted by the posts, I just think when it is a company policy that users have to contribute it can wrong.
Look at your posting history. You participate in a lot of different topics, you seem pretty interested in kiting, and to me have a profile I would describe as contributing.
If you look at the profile of a lot of the switch posters..they are pretty new. they only post really aggressively about Switch and buying it as if they were personally selling the kites....and it may seem that the only reason they are on this forum is to fulfill their posting quote set forth by Switch corporate policies. I mean I really do not know, but it seems that might be a reason.
Fair play, maybe Switch should donate?Toby wrote:you are using this forum for free, right?
you are using splocs.com for free, no?
you have the free iphone app?
well, why is all of this free? Because there are companies supporting the forum and websites.
If no one supports, no free content.
The majority of the companies are happy to support sites like this, and they also get their support.
But there are also companies (businesses) who use the forum and don't support at all.
Now that would you call a fair business, wouldn't you? Advertising on here for a worldwide operating company is really low priced...any mag is WAY more expensive!
I rather would say shame on those companies! I am doing a full time job here, and need to eat too...does any of those non supporting companies give you a free kite? I guess not....you have to buy it...
