As of today, the Tard Farm is no longer going to be a "playground" of anymore controversial new topics.

As our benevolent site owner, John, had reluctantly bestowed upon us, due to other's persistant requests, the Tard Farm, with this statement:

Tard Farm
Any dumb posts, fights, annoying or offensive threads are tossed here.  A place where they can be viewed and debated till the end of time - or till 7 days after the latest post, whichever comes first.


This is supposed to be an informational site about the GS500 (and GS450), it is also so that we can arrange group rides, and buy or sell GS500's and GS500 parts.  We have been allowed an Odds & Ends for civil and non-controversial discussions about topics other than the GS500.  Enjoy the site for the freindly people and advice.

Thank you,

The GStwin staff

It's "friendly".


So no more tard farm? I'm afraid I don't quite understand the post.

Confusion is good.

Members will no longer be able to start new threads in the TF.

Bummer, that ends the confusion.

Oh, ok.. I thought that might be what it was saying.

But if we start a dumb or offensive thread, it gets thrown here by the mods, and then we can continue to post in it. I really don't understand the change. People like Special Terry or Dizzy Vertigo, or me (when drunk) start stupid posts directly in the tard farm, cuz that's where we know they'll end up. It saves the mods work, and saves the people who don't want to read tard farm material time. But whatever, it just seems like more work for you guys.

Then they get Tarded.

Basically, what we're asking is that members control themselves; be civil, self-policing, that is what many want.

There was no one person who caused the decision to change the TF rules. It was a culmination of ongoing problems over the past few weeks/months.

I liked the tard farm. I vote to bring it back and just check a disclaimer when you enter, "i will not be offended or I will leave" or something like that. its part of this site

1 get your questions answered
2 learn more about your bike
3 meet people
4 go riding
5 read funny/stupid posts in the tard section

It hasn't gone anywhere; it's simply been returned to how john originally created it.  :thumb: Trivia: john didn't want the TF; he was worried about what it would do to GSTwin. He created the TF as a service to GSTwin members, and it sort of went the way he predicted it would.  :cry:

Well, John is the owner, he pays the upkeep costs, etc. The admins, however, seem to think that they're an extension of John, and that their will is law. Whereas, I have yet to hear from John. I know he's rarely on the forum, but I see him on AIM a good bit. I might be chatting with him soon, to see if this really follows his ideas. From the few times I've talked with him, he seems like a rather levelheaded fellow, with a good head on his shoulders. Someone who would shun the closemindedness that is ruling the forum right now, with the mods acting like gestapo (godwin's law!) and making people disappear.
