I guess it's what you (the group members) make of it?

Or do you mean official posts by the mag?

I suspect he means the constant posts by delicate flowers moaning about alleged sexism; inability to appreciate robust banter and Safety Nazism....

TBH, I gotta agree with you fella.
The trouble is the mods have got a shitter of a time deciding who's gonna be a twat aqnd who's not.

Its just like a million other facebook biker sites, seems to be an awful lot of women posting on there, wonder if they somehow feel "safer" on there ...... do the people who post on there actually know that this site exists?, do they actually go anywhere other than Facebook?

I suspect he means the constant posts by delicate flowers moaning about alleged sexism; inability to appreciate robust banter and Safety Nazism.... Thats cos its more public

I totally agree:thumbsu:
I left the group around a week ago. I'm not a great FB fan but decided to join to give Blue my support. But just recently I found myself just going on there to cause trouble and pick arguments with the idiots that frequent it..(which is not like me really...lol)
It wasnt fun and I was irritated every time I went on there. So Ive left, Ive explained to Blue and she understands completely.
This place has always been good for me, the folks on here are friends and some I've known almost 15 years now... It'll do for me...:thumbsu:

:agree:

I'm glad someone can see that - I'm one of those mods and believe me, we're damned if we do and damned if we don't! :bang:

On top of that, we have to behave when we're on there so I have to go elsewhere to be rude to people! :eek:

Forums (fora? That doesn't seem right) suit some people and the Facebook group setup suits other people. It's a nightmare trying to keep an eye on both and Dusty's right - a lot of it is a judgement call. It's got very big very quickly - from 2000 people when I took it on to close to 13000 and there's always going to be a few problems along the way. A lot of it is settling down, but it is a lot more rapid fire than here and is close to a 24/7 job.

I come here for a bit of peace! ;)

Just went over to FB and searched it, there seem to be a few 100%biker pages of sorts but the magazine logo one seems to have lots of intersting trikes and sidecars etc on it. Think it is rather interesting myself - more so than rest of facebook :- most people will ignore this, share to show you give a crap, guilt trip bolllox, yeah, click 'like' enough and it will cure cancer and give rise to world peace. Send me that link or farmville request 1 more time I'll unfriend you more like.

Cheers sir - I have to admit, I enjoy doing the daily posts on the 'official' 100% Facebook page and I've not got onto the really random stuff yet!:thumbu:

I spend a lot of time on both and I'm admin on 4 FB pages, it's not a case of whether FB suits me but whether the 100% FB page suits me - and it doesn't really because I agree with people on here who've said it should be custom bikes only, and not a place for beginners to ask silly questions or girls (even if they have or pretend to have a bike) to post pictures of themselves, or anyone to post any other cr@p.

Nuff said, I'm dropping it now cos I really don't want to go on about it.

I am disappointed with the lack of Monty Python knowledge amongst the members of the 100% Biker Page on facebook. I asked "Are there any women here today.... ?" and then sat back and awaited a Python fest of epic proportions.

I might as well have watched the England game and been less disappointed....

Facebook (in general) is full of self entitled people who can't believe that not everything they read on the Internet is true.

Complaints by one person about something most people agree is nonsense escalate in to Witch Hunts.

Hate the place.

I must say that I think the opposite is true, the forum has become pretty much dead since FB is far easier to keep tabs on and more lively...

100%Pat
10-07-2014, 06:52 PM
I think we have to agree to disagree on this one Gothtec, the idiots and keyboard warriors on the FB page has driven so many people away ...
Blue has had to have a crackdown and weed out tons... its a very hard job keeping that place going.
Here it may be quieter, but its more relaxed, friendly and actually very informative with many knowledgeable folk on here.
Here you ask a question you normally get good advice and sensible responses.... unless of course you're a knob... then you get ripped to shreds which again... is normal.
I also hate the FB page and quietly retired from there weeks ago...:p

I haven't been on facebook so I can't really comment, my children and grandchildren use it, I have seen children sitting in places like McDonalds with a phone or tablet talking to friends they have never met, other children, paedophiles, extremists recruiting for people to join their cause, dogging meets, I don't think it is for me..

Both the forum and the FB page are very different beasts - some like one, some the other. Personally, I think we should all go back to just writing letters to each other and posting them! ;) ;)

You organise it you gotta be there!

I reckon it would be a bit difficult to organise from another country tbh cos someone needs to see the proposed location etc... But I spose there are people on here who could be delegated. Why not start a thread and see what response you get?

I'm just pessimistic cos I've tried to organise things before......... :rolleyes:

Edit - I see I'm behind the times as usual! :o

I think you've got to put FB and the forum into perspective. FB is fine as Blue tends to moderate it quite well. I tend to see only bike related items on it. plus the odd strange share. you've got to realise there are all types of peeps on it. Some are very, how can we put this, intense?, in their opinions, and some are just plain stupid, arrogant, or ignorant. But on the whole most are fairly straight forward. Just take everyone and everything with a pinch of salt. That's what I do.

As for the Forum? It's full of doddery old nutters that should have been sectioned, put down, or put in a home years ago! And I fell right at home!

Maaatrooonn? Pass me meds!

I like FB cos I can keep in touch with friends and relatives from all over, in the same place - I don't have the kind of friends that post cr@p and if I find that any of them do I justr get rid of them. FB is as good as the way you use it but having said that, I have to agree that there's nothing as good as a forum like this for a like-minded group to keep in touch.

facebook has its place - its the idiots whopost driel onit that makes it what it is.

But then again i dont suffer too much onit and most things turned off so no annoying mesages - the odd asdvert but i stop them and report them as spam :)

as for idiots posting on there with there driel - forums used to be like that at times - delete n block works wonders :)

Learn to use it properly - take the time to change the settings and all of a sudden thers a lot less posts - oh and i dont have chat enabled :)

I fucking hate facefuck.

My youngest daughter informed one day that I "Simply must have a facebook account", EVERYBODY has a Facebook account, I'll set it up for you"

....errrrr thanks baby.

My email was swamped with masses, hundreds of emails every day. I could have bought several million tons of Viagra and bulk prices! EVERY insurance robbing cunt could cover me for every conceivable accident, injury, job loss, breakdown, personal item theft or damage. Pension companies could even protect me from the likes of that robbing asswipe fuckpig Gordon Brown.

Money would have been no object, thanks to hundreds of new Nigerian "Friends! Hair loss would have been something I would never have to worry about again. Curtains, carpets, hideous furniture, double glazing, stair lifts, central heating and solar panels could all be installed on interest free credit with nothing to pay for the first year.

Dozens of sad fuck wannabe assholes wanted to be my "Friend". They all seemed to fail to understand that I wanted NOTHING to do with them unless they had big tits and were into extreme BDSM. Hundreds of people that I did not know and had no wish to know, wanted me to join them playing some stupid fucking game.

I really had no wish whatsoever to learn that some dickdrip had just fed his pregnant cat. Nor was at all interested in another fuckwit bus chaser's concerns over the demise of a lesser spotted leper in outer Mongolia and his wife's ingrown toenails.

So having been absofuckinglutely delighted by my introduction to Facefuck. I decided to do the only rational thing. DELETE MY ACCOUNT! I then had god knows how many emails from facefuck themselves asking me if I was really sure I wanted to close my account. Sending them a message saying "STICK YOUR FACEFUCK ACCOUNT UP YOUR ARSE AND GO FUCK YOURSELVES" Apparently failed to convince them that I was sincere in my desire to have nothing to do with them.

Facebook is one of those things that should NEVER have been created, bit like fluffy dice and nodding dogs. However, it does allow for bus chasers and window lickers to stay indoors when it is raining. It helps those inadequates that feel the need to be contestants on Jeremy "Sanctimonious cunt" Kyle communicate with other bottom feeding germs.

Have the millions of facefuck users forgotten how to use a pen and paper? Do these "People" ever actually venture outdoors and meet real live flesh and blood humans?

Not really a fan of facefuck.

Yeah? The little madam also wanted me to give her a lift one night to a friends place. I couldn't because I was so busy trying to sort out the mess on my computer. She very quickly changed all the settings for me, but I still got hundreds of messages from muppets that I didn't want to know asking to be my "Friend" and inviting me to play some stupid game or support some obscure charity.

If these idiots really wanted to be friends with me, why didn't they get off their arses and come and meet me in real time, face to face like grown ups do?

Is it a requirement of facefuck membership that you have to spend more than half your waking life, glued to a PC, exchanging inane drivel with "People" and pretend friends you have never met and are never likely to?

It's all bollocks.

Personally I find facebook quite handy for keeping in touch with old mates, I've also got a few friends on there in foreign parts that I've met on music forums-I know it's highly unlikely that I'll ever meet them in real life but I view it as being like "pen friends" but without the hassle of finding that special airmail writing paper or having to ask for the right stamps to send a letter to America or Australia :) I will say though that it took a while to get the security settings and all the "blocks" right to keep the crap at bay, and there have been an awful lot of friend requests that got ignored-including some from people I used to know ;)
