    I know I don't come here that much anymore, but when I do, I would sure love to be able to have a 'THANKS' button to acknowledge posts. It was just about the best and most unique feature on STR.
    Dude, don't make me start a 'CAUSES' petition to get our 'Thanks" back. :lol:
    Thanks about it ok? I mean THINK about it!

    Thanks

    You read my mind Liz. So many great posts, comments, etc that I really would like to thank that individual.

    Thanks for getting the "thanks" rolling....

    I have better luck getting ahold of Jorge by Facebook. As the thx leader, no one want the button and tally back as much as I do.

    This is one of the main reasons why I haven't been visiting STR much lately. I liked being able to hit a "thanks" or "like" button to show appreciation for a post without having to write it out.
    Well, that and I frankly don't care for how George doesn't give a crap about STR or the members. I don't know the guy but he seems selfish and self absorbed. I mean come on already, sell it to somebody who cares. Seriously, how long has it been since this website has been broken and he still hasn't fixed all the glitches, 4-5 months? Hell, it took 2 months and a lot of harassment for him to do anything. I don't care how busy he is, 5 months is way too long, there's no excuse.
    And forget about ever having the pictures brought up to date with active members who still ride.

    Well, I do know that's a very old picture and the guy second from the right is "Uplander" who hasn't touched his bike in over 2 years and hasn't contributed anything constructive in a long time other than posting once in a while in "An interesting fact about global warming" thread.

    I bet if I saw their faces I would probably know a few more. I'm not trying to diss anyone in that picture but it has been the same picture for almost a decade. Come on lets move forward and not get stuck in the past.
    What's odd is Dean's face is no longer in the corner.

    The real question should be, "What size is that tire in the left side of the photo?" Because if it's not a 29er or a 27.5, it definitely needs to be updated! 26 is going the way of the dinosaur, just like the thanks button!

    That Avid rotor looks all cracked and broken. Practically unusable.

    Oh and since this was about the thanks button...THANKS for the strangest thread in a while...(not your fault, OP).

    You know how to know that it's been up there a while? Because it's a Hayes rotor.

    Bet a lot of the newer guys have never experienced the 'joy' of Hayes 9s.

    I'll have you know, that my 8" Hayes 9, which squealed like a pig, scared off a Grizzly Bear coming down Lower Merrill Christmas eve in 1999

    If you blessed yourself with Hayes all you needed to do is grab a bit of brake a few corners up and people would dive off the track. No annoying bells needed as the levers provided all the rattle you could handle.
