Question:

Why is there so much BS on the forum? and how come so many members are not actually members? at least thats the impression that i get.

 

Answer:

The Forum is an open forum for people to discuss mountain biking in WNY.  Although there are some moderation guidelines it is open to anyone who wants to post, so like most forums, it can accumulate BS.  It has been suggested that it be open to WNYMBA members only and this is an issue of constant discussion within WNYMBA.  There are pros and cons of both.  It would probably be a dead forum if open to only WNYMBA members.  And WNYMBA members can sometimes be the ones posting BS.  Howevr, you are right, some of the most prolific posters are not members.  Of the top 15 posters all time to the forum, 6 are not members of WNYMBA, including the second-most-frequent poster.

The most important thing to remember is that the forum does not represent the views of WNYMBA and no official information about the club is posted there.  The website itself (as opposed to the forum) is where to get the news and goings-on about WNYMBA.  You are not the only one to whom the BS is annoying.  For such a situation, I suggest sticking to the website itself to get news and information, and ignore the forum.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
