BOAY overtakes RC as the premier Racing chat site

Recommended Posts

So what's the pick on when this will happen

I'm privy to quite a few of the things that are planned, so I won't say:)

Based on what Hesi?  Views per week, number of posts per week, members.

Stop being so obsessed with Race Cafe, a few to many threads are about it on here and will quickly become a yawn instead of a yarn.

Focus on building a quality informative and entertaining site, rather than becoming the default site for those bitter at Race Cafe.

Fair comment and a good point Barry, a lot of the stuff you talk about is already work in progress.

Probably gauge popularity based on users online at any one time, an approx guide only, but easy to measure

The Chief keeps a close eye on that, and I think Friday was the first time we were ahead, which is not bad considering that was the 3 week anniversary

Barry, 

Dont think Hesi is out of line on this. You gotta remember, many have not had a voice for so long, mainly because they had different views to those ruling RC. So Hesi is a bit enthusiastic, so what, I think that’s what was needed, nobody is being nasty about anything, which is certainly a good thing. 

You only have to look at the harness section to see how things can run smoothly, without the agro. 

So keep it up Hesi, good competition be good for both sites. 👍

Good point Newmarket.

I was amazed the day I signed up here that I had my IM disabled at RC, I have done zero to upset management etc over there.

So I certainly get where you are coming from.

I see a few snide remarks about some on here, that still entered comp on rc last weekend. 

Scooby mentions his Premier Site name all the time, must be worried. Then thanking his loyal followers, sounds a bit like Destiny church 

On a serious note, and I am being serious, is P4P ok? Been a few rumours all is not well, and not like him to be so quiet.

I hear ya Bazza but also understand in these early days there will also be some natural focus on the old channel - particularly as a result of their behavior.

I see nothing wrong with dipping into both sites - there remain some good sorts over the fence still who submit posts I find interesting.  However I have not posted there since I joined BOAY - & i note now that even if I wanted to - a msg tells me that I am barred from doing so until 1 May 2018.

I put my hand up as having expressed my regret about the other site at times (there and here) but believe I did so in a measured and not in a rude way.

I have to say I find this response completely bizarre.  I know of not a single online forum which demands your membership be exclusive.  Naturally you will likely end up preferring one to the other - but who evicts their members merely for having the temerity to particpiate on another site? 

You would think when you are facing an exodus and have had the misgivings of some members clearly expressed (with common & consistent themes to that discontent) - you would set about examining yr practise, trying to up your game & make efforts to retain old members and attract new.

Instead of that you get a mean spirited PM and a ban.   

I struggle to see it as anything but a petulant retort which besides anything else -  is commercially foolish.

Sorry but that comment oversteps the line of keeping family who can't defend themselves out of any debate.

I'd rather we focussed onwards and upwards leaving "the best brain in NZ racing" to talk to himself.

Agree Jess.

Like you,  I like to look in on other sites ,  I enjoy comment and discussion even if I don't necesarily agree.

I used to like the old Racechat,  too -  but tech issues seem to dog that one to a degree....and the other new one,  racing.network,  seems to have no traffic as yet although looks very smart!

No-one should have anything to fear from people browsing a variety of sites.  It's completely normal online behavior!  

As I say - most will probably end up favoring one over others - but it's not a matter of having to nail your colors to a mast forsaking all others.  And that is the weird thing about how the old site is responding.

I gather the administrator there believes he has a grievance - that would usually be dealt with by the established channels in a professional manner.  Not by on-line personal attacks and banning of site members.  J

Fair comment Chief Stipe, but it is fact that family issues can cause humans to act irrationally, especially if some rejection may be involved.

Hell,he  must have had some terrible family issues to explain his behaviour over the years.

One thing I never got about the other site was that every time I went into a thread, I'd have to refresh the page in order to see the new content, it was like that on every page, it really got tedious after a while.

No issue  with that here, new content there as soon as you click on.

Had same issue over there too. Scoobs probably still using old Wang computer! 

Real quick here.

Here’s one question for The Chief, when you post you have the option of editing post? Is that option only available for a certain time, before option is removed?

Yes only for a certain time which we can adjust.

How many members now chief. You can use same formula as rc if you want. Add up all members, multiply by 1000, then reduce by 20%. Good enough for them, good enough for us

I'm sure Google would be unbiased in determining who is the premier racing community in NZ. 👍
