Racing Section to go Private?

Ok, so we've been mulling this over, and we thought, why not let you all decide.

So vote in the poll and tell us what you think.

It is a question that has come up from members repeatedly.

This portion of the forum tends to attract a lot of "Guest" viewership and some would like those "Guests" to join and participate if they frequent the board.

So, because it is a question that has been repeatedly asked, we thought the members should be given the right to answer it.

Good enough?

OK....so who are the two people that hate everyone?

should stay public. zero posters suck. if they like what they see, they just might register and contribute. no doubt that's how a few of our really good members got here.

whats the difference between a zero poster and a guest? neither hurt the forum...

public or private it really doesnt matter much, it's still going to be popular either way

Perhaps a seperate private Racing Multimedia section?
That way Motomummy will have a little legal barrier if any of these guests turn up with a cease and desist.

Hi, I'm new to the board. I found this place via the R6Messagenet. What initially caught my interest is this section right here, racing discussion quality >> than over there, and the pictures uploaded are amazing (links often posted over there directing people to this site); I wouldn't have joined had this area of the forum not been public. I haven't been around long enough to say public or private, but there are merits to keeping it public as I mentioned above.

Welcome!

And....great point. If people can't see the stuff, they don't know it's there. Why join? A private racing section would make the forum look boring like many others out there. A public forum will lure good members.....

hello, I've been reading through this site for quite a while now. It has come to my attention that 0 posters like myself do suck, but i just dont like getting into e-arguements all the time and getting myself into that stuff. Although with that said i may start participating once in a while.

Joined this forum "because" of the Racing section , actually i joined quite a few forums coz of the Racing news well i'm addicted to the Racing stuff so i mostly post in here .

sumtimes i even post decent stuff and pics when i find them :

so if it had been private i wouldn't have been here either

however i don't like people who freeload and leech on sum sites and don't contribute

so i aon't voting as i'm 50% for Public and 50% for Private

difficult question to answer

This new segregation of the Racing section happened just a short while after I suggested it, lol.

I think it's a good solution which will prove to be valuable when the racing season starts and/or more photos/videos start to appear. One of the worst things I know of is that dumb imageshack frog. blah.
