Forum Suggestions & User Assistance - New sub-forum suggestion
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

Most forums I have been on for various types of fitness, exercise, and sports have an injuries and illness forum. It might not be a bad idea to add that to the subforums, especially with so many forum members that have been through similar accidents and injuries, both traumatic and overuse. It seems like that might be a more fitting place to discuss injuries than in training and nutrition or wherever else.

Well, I suppose it would be good to read when you think you're having a bad day. :D

I think we already have A&S and course the Cyclist Memorial thread...PHWEW!
I think if somebody wanted to do a member status thread...still, we have dozens of injuries among us and most members tend to start a thread, either for them or on behalf of others.
I believe you will find the one started for our dear Stacey when she learned that she was dying and yet would not surrender, choosing to raise charity funds for others every day.
We do an outstanding job of standing for others, even as we may fall. The entire site is the thread you'd like and therefore it's here now, you understand.

Thank you, Rollfast. This is my thought as well, and I remember Stacey as well. One of the things I'm afraid of, also if there is an injuries subforum is twofold;
First, that it will turn into a lurid photo forum, and there are people that will try to turn it into just that, with extremely graphic photos.
Second, and more important, to my mind, is that sense of community Bike Forums has that is so unique to internet forums will be reduced. We've had injury threads, and recovery threads pop up everywhere and there is always an outpouring of support and advice, and part of that is because people visited the threads in their "Home Forum", and wouldn't even see the thread otherwise, because they have their own group of forums they read, and rarely, if ever, stray from them.
