    So now that we've solved the spambot problem.....how serious are we about making this place hospitable for new/returning users again? I have some thoughts but I'd love to hear what others think.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    ...is it starting a new sw33t fixie craze? I say open it up to folks like bike partiers if they don't already have an off-fb hangout. Do the wheelie kids have a forum? The wheelie kids should have a forum."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Wow I didn't check for 4 whole days (was in Vegas, baby!) and no spams! Amaze.

    Yeah I think we should try to open it up as much as we can, not sure the best way to do that though other than put it out there in other forums/IRL.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Nandy's joke is actually on point. I think if we rebranded slightly we could show new arrivals that it's not just for fixie kidz. I'd be willing to pay for an alternative domain name, and we wouldn't even have to lose the old URL for OGs:

    Create an alias (or the action formerly known as parking a domain)
    When the system creates an alias, it does the same thing as a redirect; except that the website name shown on the address bar does not change. Think of it as using two different picture frames for the same artwork. The website content is the same for both URLs (the artwork), but what changes is the URL shown in the address bar (the picture frame in the example). For example, example.org is an alias for example.com. Try it!

    You can create an alias for several domains to show the same page. The domains have to be registered with a valid domain registrar before you can create the alias. Also, you’ll need to make sure the nameservers are the same as those for your primary domain (the domain that you are pointing towards).

    Important: Make sure you know what type of hosting account or package your account has. If you have a reseller account, you will need to ask your provider if you have access or permission to create an alias.

    If you do not have this permission, you may be able to redirect one of the URLs instead of creating the alias.
    If you have permission, ask for the number of domains for which you are allowed to create an alias.


    Of course, we'd still need to decide on a new domain, and we'd probably have to edit the header image to be more general... And then get some of the cool kids back on here. And then post in some of the FB groups we follow, etc etc.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Good ideas! I posted on the bostonfixed FB page but that is pretty dead too. Some of this would probably necessitate getting Brandon involved a)for help and b)because it's his domain and we should probably make sure he's cool with it.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Or we could just keep it going as a sw33t s e c r e t h a n g o u t and see if people come back/ find it on their own."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    At the very least we can start trying to bring people back while we work on more options.
