We will exclude that video section soon.
The forum will get used to show videos.
With the new feature it is so much easier to post than in that old video section.

With the first ever considerable decline in facebook eg #deletefacebook due to privacy/ data ai algorithm concerns i think we are seeing a return to grassroots platforms not controlled by bots and ai.

Instagram even has become a high percentage of bots liking bots to like the bot back... for exposure in tje reverse way.

its a good thing. I like by kiteboarders for kiteboarders of course!

i think even the younger insta kiting generation are changing their habits realising living life through bot likes is not good for mental health.

The thing is that technology got ahead of most peoples knowledge of it, and now that has changed... that is good.

The forum is good, real people ( even the trolls), real views and opinions.

i dont read the news, especially not any social media api stuff. The press releases from gka/ika world sailing are the worst. In pkra times people would have opinions and an interest in this stuff... today there is next to no interest in it.. except for me complaining maybe!

good work

You could consider self hosted video in 2019 (storage space cheaper). You make a post with it and peopke can discuss them.

exclusive content.. or release it first on kiteforum... let people know.. not allowed on other platforms for a week..

Only post the very best stuff short edits, be selective what advertorial videos you accept - have high standards... content rules. Show play stats.

it helps take back control from the big 2.. fb ( includes insta)/ google ( includes youtube)

Too much to change for that.
And I doubt it will work.
Now it is so easy to embed on the forum.

The forum is a good alternative for those who want to stay away from FB etc. I don’t thing they mind viewing YouTube or Vimeo videos directly on here.

But, I am thinking of a new site where I will use a forum and Vimeo to show all my tricks. I would also add important info for each trick. So like a how to site.

I wouldn’t integrate it here since it would have too many forums, which it needs to have some kind of structure.

And hosting it on my own server is a big task...I prefer Vimeo, since with about 2400 tricks and several clips per trick we are talking about 10.000 clips.
Making it the biggest trick database worldwide forever.
Strictly hooked 😁

Thanks for the site. It provides an awesome space for likeminded people to exchange ideas and stories.

My suggestion would be to take control of the space on your website. Screen space, especially on movile devices, is scarce. The mobile view of this site barely gives any content on the first view (see screenshot attached ... Or look on your phone :-) ).

How about getting content on two thirds of the first view and keeping the one third for commercial, etc. ?

I understand commercials may be necessary and I won't make this an issue (however, three blocks on each page is not low). Still, there is lots of space that can be reclaimed simply by rearranging and removing unnecessary and duplicate content.

This probably isn't a five minute task, but the site would greatly profit from that and underline its professional aspiration.

Thanks!
