    The New Roolz

    Welcome to the TGR Forums. These forums have been around for over a decade and, prior to that, many OG posters gathered on Powder Magazine forums. They've been built on stoke - principally Trip Reports and photos of ski, bike and other trips to awesome places. There's also injury rehab advice, unbiased local conditions reporting, and completely random conversations about everything from home brewing beer to politics and building your own back deck. Post stoke, or offer up some sweet deals on gear, and it will be smooth sailing.

    Still, the TGR Forums are a bit more like the Wild West, and out here, folks tend to have their own language - the closest ascribed dialect is known as “sarcasm” - so you might want to have a thick skin. "JONG" is a term you may hear often around here and is just TGR Forum slang for when a newbie makes a newbie mistake, like posting a thread in the wrong place. Just a head’s up - don't take it personally...

    If this is your first time using an online forum, this is a good video to get you going (from a different forum, but you get the idea:




    THE 3 BASIC RULES:
    1) Do not flame anyone's race, faith or sexual preferences
    2) No personal attacks or threats against other members
    3) Don't post someone else's email address, phone number, or physical address! We will delete it immediately and count it as a strike (more on that later)


    For violation of the rules, you will get three strikes before being banned completely:
    Strike 1: You’ll get a Private Message from a moderator with a warning after deleting the offending post
    Strike 2: A mod will ban you from posting in the forums for one week
    Strike 3: If after being messaging offline by a moderator, then banned for a week, and you still can’t get your act together, you’ll be banned from the forums completely. 


    And we must mention a few special circumstances:
    - Aliases started for the sole purpose of harassing others, or to break any of the other rules here, will be banned.
    - Do not join the forums and immediately post advertisements to your outside company. You’ll quickly be banned. You can, of course, sell your own personal gear whenever you'd like to in the Gear Swap.
    - Don't threaten the president! If the Secret Service comes calling, we will give them all the information we can find about you. If we can figure out the Secret Service's email address, we might just send them all that info before they even ask.
    - We rely on the moderators for their judgment, whether everyone agrees with it or not.
    - The moderators always have the ability/right to ban someone with no warning if they feel it's the right thing to do


    Meet the Moderators:
    We have a few moderators on here (Tye 1on, splat, and commonlaw) who selflessly donate their time to guard the gates of forum stoke. They'll do their best to answer your housekeeping or editing questions if you ask them nicely through a Private Message. There's also Ryan Dunfee, TGR's Associate Editor and forum liaison.


    Keep in mind that our moderators have discretion over how to handle any situation pertaining to the above rules and strikes. Aside from these basic rules, here’s a few pointers to have the best initial experience possible:
    -Post your thread in the right place. There's a thread about that here. If you’re thinking about creating your first post (sell a pair of skis you have, look for feedback on equipment or a trip, etc.), research that topic beforehand. Chances are someone’s posted about it before.
    -Yes, we understand your opinion matters and you might or might not have strong convictions for your beliefs but, please, try to be more than just the insulting douchebag who has little to offer beyond condescending put downs. Humor, wit and intelligence carry the dialogue much further than repetitious childish remarks designed to simply irritate. Failure to adhere this most basic principle of forum interaction could land you a strike, if continued ad nauseam. That would leave you only two more strikes before it’s hasta la bye-bye. If your only intent in interacting on TGR is to stir shit, you will be escorted out of the forums and the gates will be locked.
    -If you are commenting on a thread about an avalanche incident in the Slide Zone, realize that while constructive criticism is not taboo in that specific part of the forums, post knowing that those who have lost loved ones may read your thoughts.

    Also please see our Terms of Use , Privacy Policy, and our FAQ for any additional.

    Thanks for joining the TGR Forums - keep the stoke alive!

    splat-
    I PM'd you and you never responded. Maybe because you had a nice front page piece coming out? Please delete all of my posts, and my login.

    This shit's stupid, childish, and will make TGR even more of a cliquish dump than it is. The bar none ghayest dumbest boards have strikes and demerits. TGR was fine when their fucking former employer and moderator posted my e-mail; everyone just jerked off over it. This shit's crap.

    -fuck all y'all

    I just hope no one posts "We Built This City".

    No personal attacks? Who defines a personal attack? There's loads of tasteless repartee, some of it really classless, but c'mon, that's awfully arbitrary.

    that's the fucking point. it's arbitrary rules so they can weed out the "malfactors" that they don't want around because they believe - based on the ear's of all those core bro's and canvasing the "stoke producers" that that'll turn this place around. Because what'll be great is if it's just self-promotional circle jerkers spewing about how awesome they are because they got to huff hoji's farts on a skintrack and kiss the bindings.

    Same reason you dump "new rules" on a Friday evening, like you do bad news.

    I also advocate for sink-peeing whenever possible.

    It will business as usual around here. The only difference is you might get more notice before your bestiality obsessed, transsexual midget hating alias is nuked. Discretion always existed. There's no Gestapo.

    If this "discretion" is the better part of "valor", I'm pitying valor.

    could you give yourself a strike for contemptuous behavior?


    of course it's not business as usual, which is why the rules changed. people - especially the constant self-promotional spewers - are pissed that some people are tired of their constant self-promotional spew. that isn't like it was, why would the audience be the same.

    just hire greg and be done with it. than keep all the paid-to-post spewers.

    you related to SFB?

    about time they reeled in those damn mods who thought they could just nuke at will...fuckers...
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.
