Renaming this forum
 
Alright,

We have a proposal on the table to rename this forum. I'm attaching a poll with the most popular candidate names for your votes. It'll be an anonymous poll, by the way, so vote for your option, and the one with the most votes, wins. I'll be leaving this poll active for 30 days.

Definitely in need of a rename. Good work.

All four possibilities are good, and the change is badly needed. Imagine the message count once you can start discussing the entire pro season.

Tom Stormcrowe 02-05-09 11:50 PM

Keep those votes rolling in, everyone. :D

Thanks for the options Tom. Hope you are recovering well.:thumb:

I agree. Focusing on just the Tour de France limits the forum activity to predominantly July, +/- a few weeks. The next logical question is whether the professional competition forum would cover just road racing, or include mountain biking, cyclocross, track, potato sack racing, etc?

How about 'Dope-o-rama'?

I think this could be road, track, mountain, what ever.

I see the forum developing in ways we might not necessarily expect, even, but hope it attracts many race fans from all disciplines of cycling. The Grand Tours, the Epic races like RAAM, or the Epic MTB races like the Kokopelli Trail Race.

This place gets very busy starting in about June. Do you prefer the racers stick to the road racing forum during the TdF? I'd vote for creating a new Professional Cycling Fans Forum and keeping this one as-is, unless a name change is already in the works.

How about: "The Did Lance Pick His Nose Today? Forum"....?

jaxgtr 02-06-09 08:12 PM

I think I see the Road Racing Forum more for the folks that actually race versus the group of folks that just ride and like to follow racing. Might be a small bit of duplication, but probably not a lot.

Make it a subforum. Those that do will find it and those that don't will find it anyway.

Hey, easy there....everyone knows that potatoes are a banned substance. :lol:

Good choices, Tom. And thanks for the e-mail this morning. If it gets busy enough, you may consider renaming it to "Professional Road Cycling".

Tom Stormcrowe 02-21-09 09:08 AM

Let's keep those votes coming in....we have a couple of weeks left on this topic. Once we have the fian results, we'll make the change.

baj32161 03-02-09 09:55 PM

Hey Tom....simple works for me....Professional Cycling....yeah baby!!

Little Darwin 03-06-09 01:18 PM

I think you can unsticky this now.

And thanks!!!
