I understand that viewpoint, but using that logic should we have a cruiser forum? Maybe a sport touring forum? Maybe a custom chopper forum? Most of us have automobiles, how about a car and truck forum? I want people spending their time here and 90% of the forum posters are men, so how about a babes forum
? Where does it end?
We have a pocketbikes forum, for instance. There are only 27 threads in that forum. There are other similar forums on our site with little traffic. I'm not saying motocross would have more or less, that's the point of this poll: to find out the interest.
From a new member standpoint, if I am looking for a forum to spend my time on, I want one with activity
. I want one where I know that if I post a question and need help, I'm going to get a response quickly
. One way to determine that is to look at the forum traffic. Right now, if I was a huge into pocketbikes, I'd look at our pocketbike forum and continue searching the web for something with more pocketbike traffic.
What's worse, not having a pocketbike forum at all, or having one with little traffic? In my experience you're better off not having one rather than advertising you don't have any traffic.
So, "as a business man" I have to make sure the forum is appealing to both new and old members.
