Cleanup on aisle 4 (aka Equip Review section)

Mods, can someone go into the Equipment Review section and clean it up? I'm thinking that the way that sub-forum should be, is for people to write their personal reviews on their gear. The OP of each thread created in there should be a review--not a noob asking a question. Sure there will be questions/discussions within each thread, but the topic of each thread should begin with an ACTUAL REVIEW. All other general question asking threads should be moved to the appropriate sub-forum (boards/bindings/boots/outerwear). I know it will take some time, but I think it would be a very valuable effort. It will be much easier for vets and noobs alike to start their search in the review section alone when they're looking for specific info. Hopefully this will play a small part in cutting down on some of the annoying and repetitive questions being asked these days.

But I don't know what board I'm supposed to want. Should I want a EVO-R or a Skate Banana. For serious guys, which ones better?

I've hit this same wall too. These days I don't bother clicking on it and upping the view count, let alone responding--unless it's actually something original. Heck, even some of the so-called reviews I've seen are completely useless imho too.

Sweet! I bet it would happen alot faster if there was an extra mod on duty. I wonder who could fill that role? Hmmm....

Haha, I put this in the general snowboarding forum, but didn't know there was a forum where I could get moderators attention.

Normally, no. I always whizzed by that forum reading it as news and updates. Apparently I omitted the "suggestions" part :P. I'm a member of many forums, I guess I just never saw news and updates bunched in with suggestions. Obviously in this forum, the news and updates are about the forum itself, rather than the topic.

On my350z.com for example, it's called "feedback, suggestions, and questions", with the explanation "For posting feedback, suggestions or questions regarding My350Z.com" Then they have a separate forum called "Announcements" from moderators and site admins.


Oh a little tip, I noticed some posts like "2010 Never Summer EVOR-R" in this forum. The explanation for this forum is "Have some input, or a question, post it in here." So I could see how a newb could get confused. just add in "about snowboardingforum.com" in the explanation.
