- Newbie here
Any advice about surviving on this forum.Any crazies to avoid?
Don't ask TandemJeremy about helmets
Don't ask anyone about politics
Don't post a pic of your bike unless it's perfect/the latest niche/made by a man with a beard/has the tyres and logos lined up/is in a tidy garden, etc, etc, etc.
Oh, and don't ask about whisky. The snobbery is amazing…..
Finally, Mark Datz was a funny troll, but now it isn't. You'd better be better. Or else I will be forced to kill you. Which would be a senseless waste of human life.Posted 9 years agoAmbroseSubscriber
Top tip- ask for advice, thank people for it. Never express an opinion. Seems to work for me. Do not post about dogs. Or tyres. Or 'What's it worth…'
AFAIKT no-one hates me as yet. I've met a few people off the site, all of them to date are normal human beings. Some are rather too trusting and have followed me all over soggy Mid and South Wales which was rather sweet of them.
For a good idea of who thinks what, take a look at any of 'Keasae's threads. Might be worth making a cup of tea first. And to show how wonderful people can be take a look at 'petesgaff' epic tale 'I think I'm about to be diagnosed with cancer and I'm rather scared' you may need a hankerchief.
finally, archived somewhere is the all-time favorite, 'Agent Picolax'. I'm so glad that it wasn't me!Posted 9 years agoradoggairMember
REMEMBER DONT USE CAPS LOCK WHEN SAYING SOMETHING
please please please no 'what tyre threads'
try and get on a STW meet and ride at some point
Remember there is always someone better than you
Feel free to use words such as 'rad', 'rig', 'niche' and always use 'z' instead of 's' to look cool ( bermz, jumpz, etc)
At some point you will get good advise, dont know when but you will
The main thing though is that no matter how bitchy, or cynical or how nasty threads get there is some amazing people on here who can give you advise on anything you need and can help you out on whatever you want. Underneath our thick skin we have hearts

I wish I had made a thread like this when I stumbled across this forum a few weekz ago..
I could have saved myself a lot of frustrated bashing skull against desk scenarios as my seemingly innocent and pleasant (and dare I say nervous and tentative) posts were met with hails of scorn and jeering like you only see in the house of commonz… it was proper gnarly and thaaa'
BUT.. I persevered and they are actually ok.. great folk for helping out with spelling and suchlike too…
