    uh, no idea.
    Step 1 is to get a house
    Step 2 is to replace my car which is almost 20 years old, is still reliable but my confidence in it staying that way is dropping
    Step 3 is another bike, fuck knows what it will be

    I actually told Azazl in the Kalamunda hotel i was not llbuono he didn't get it he still doesn't.

    The English language is a strange thing. Many people use all sorts of words to avoid using the words dead, die or death. Sometimes they make me chuckle. Like in this example.

    When they die, they don't pass. They fail.

    Younger people tend not to inhabit forum style chat rooms.

    When PSB was off-line I had to use FB... Hate the stalkerbook but have done a couple of PSB posts on FB.

    I popped into here recently looking for some gear and got some, so even at the worst of times, PSB still delivers!

    If I ride with anyone else now it's closed group private ninja stuff for comms.

    Have to pop in more often now. Curious what bike Barfy's going to get next

    Yeah, agreed, one more app...I guess it was more about having notifications when a ride is on / in your area as a way of notifying someone in a dedicated manner, so not even using it for chatting or anything... Facebook just isn't really conducive of proper threads is it, it's so hard to find anything, search is shit etc, I guess the big draw was the regular rides, that's what got people together and then the forum kind of followed because everyone knew each other.. Not sure if making an app to 'find rides in your area' (maybe it could find hot singles in your area too?) would stimulate more people to add more regular rides / easier to find a ride..

    If anyone can do it then it will be you haha

    If someone wanted a group ride, they used to come on here and then maybe saw an interested thread and so they then contributed. By having an app for rides, you further dilute the forum as peeps will use it rather than coming on here and posting.

    Still around, but as others have alluded to, most of us went away after forum problems and increased risk of monetary fines. I've now moved to the USA where the only police cameras on the roads are those pinned to the cops shirts. Love the approach over here to speeding and road rules.

    I think that perhaps the first thing that needs to be identified are the problems people have that prevent them from being involved.

    I think IRC + Google groups (usenet) would actually be a workable solution to fix some of the reliability/maintenance issues, but it's a lot more old school and not as flashy. But, they also don't involve the massive invasion of privacy like social media such as Facebook incur.

    IRC can be very resilient to failure as it runs on a network of many servers
    Ditto for usenet

    That would solve the issue of the forum software going down or having to be paid for by someone to run it.


    But that's not the only issue. I'm sure there are plenty of others.

    I'm not sure what the "solution" is, but I think as far as PSB the social circle goes the eventual replacement will be something that isn't a forum.

    Maybe google groups + IRC or something of the like? (Back to old-school usenet + IRC, lol).

    I have a lurk every once and a while but no longer FIFO so much less time on line at work LOL

    It would be nice if it got some traction but most forums are in a similar state every one has gone to Facebook groups
