That's some nasty flooding. We were supposed to get 2" of rain, but got a ton of wind instead.

That Dragon is interesting. I'm not generally a "super involved anodizing scheme" kind of guy, but that's pretty cool.

All kidding aside, I was just reading about the flooding in Michigan. Looks like a lot of people are displaced.
Its pretty crazy, mostly just bad infrastructure. Thats like mi 101, doesnt care enough to spend the money where its supposed to. Its a shame too.

Mike i was wondering about that, i could only imagine not having flood insurance for that and having it happen which like you said never ever happens.

The crazy thing is we have a ton of drainage problems too. You would think with as much rain and hurricanes as we get that we would be prepared, but no. Every year of the city gets shut down because of flooding. I think it's mostly due to over population. We are just so built up around here that there is nowhere to send the water. Not to mention we have to worry about storm surge and not just how many inches of rain.

That's some crazy flooding Mike! Wow. You guys projected to get more rain soon or is there going to be time for this to recede?

That's encouraging. Hopefully you get a week or two without any rain to help get things under control.

We are dry as a bone up here in the up, just in time for all the citiots to come up here and start fires and probably burn everything to the ground. Opposite problem of downstate.

We went from 50's to 90's overnight. and 85%+humidity. It's gonna stay like this. I hate Indiana. They keep saying it'll rain but it's been 3 days now and we have no rain. I gotta spray my weeds and my house for bugs but i can't do that unless I know it's not going to rain.

Sudden swing of temps and humidity can **** right off. Went from around 50-60s to high 80s almost instantly.

Also the mobile version of this site is atrocious.

your mobile site works? Mine hasnt' loaded for months, from chrome on my phone. There's a reason we don't see this place growing.

I've never liked the mobile view, always changed it back to classic/desktop if I have to use my phone to see something on here.

Growth on a forum right now would sure be difficult. I don't think we can point to a crap mobile view version as THE reason there's no growth. Contributing factor, for sure. Personally, I'd like to see us be a LOT more visible at events again, maybe with some sort of mobile hot spot for folks to tie into. That would involve hardware, and I doubt that's an investment that's likely to happen any time real soon. But more visibility shouldn't be too difficult.

Be glad the desktop version of the forum hasn't been absolutely decimated. Many automotive forums have become almost unusable. *chough*verticalscope*cough*

Almost all my snowmobile forums have gone to the ****ty hybrid of a mobile and desktop site. Its fricken awful, it must be so they dont have to display so many web links on one page.

Search function needs to be fixed and be consistent.

Info is old, majority of marker "Sticky's" are broken for older markers... need to focus on BST to bring people back. Then up the amount of section specific captains/mods with sole focus on rebuilding the info.

Need to be able to directly upload photos to BST posts... that's the only thing FB marketplace has going for it.

New wave of players are minimal input people.

Yup, that's exactly the nonsense I was referring to. I've stopped using those forums. I have no idea why they forced it through in face of all the backlash.
The cynic in me believes it was done just to serve more ads.

Forums are dying, people are transitioning to facebutt groups and the like which is a shame. Forums are a far superior platform for archiving knowledge.
