Hey Steve-
just wondering if you do all the maintenance on your forum??

Hey James, I tried registering but it kept telling me the confirmation code was incorrect, but I couldn't see a con. code. Any ideas?

Hi James,

Nice work. When you were asking about forum maintenance, what did you mean? Like removing the spam and moderating or updating software? Most of the time is spent keeping the spam off it.

I like your forum.

What is your view of why you decided to set up a forum and what do you feel is your goal of it?

I like the forum. I cant wait untill there is enough people to keep it active. I like how you set it up with many different sections, always something to look at, read, or post about. I will keep coming back.
Between Gopher and thefriction.com, I will have to take time off from work to see it all!

well steve,
I feel that in addition to selling our clothing line, we can let anyone who hasnt heard of us, know what we are all about... plus everyone loves a forum!!! http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
Our forum will be a little more... how do you say... unrestricted... but It should be all good.

My question was in the midst of a meltdown with the captcha screen... all good now. Im waiting to see your posts steve...lol

I actually got some of the people that we sponsor to register, so the members can talk to them directly... pretty cool... we are getting alot of hits, so I think we should be ok with the post and stuff... thanks for helping out.

The reason I was asking was that it is very time consuming to keep a forum going. It's also tough to get it started.

If you find that you are not getting the volume of communication you are looking for, you can go the route of having a blog and then making posts about the latest in the company or news about the fighters.

But ultimately, experiment with it and see what you find you like or don't like.

Keep us posted to what you find with all of this.

Are you working on any new happenings with the clothing company? Any new marketing ideas or fights planned or anything like that?

I sprung for the solid rubber ones this time, Tired of plugging tires. Then I had to pack the new bearings, install the seals & put em on the mower.... yada yada yada. $100 ea, + seals & bearings. Ouch. plus $45 for a battery earlier this week, & a $90 belt last week. YAY!
