TGR forums are wonderful. Sure some of them flame newbs, but the last time I checked, it happens on here, too... all the time. The TGR forums are a lot of more mature with a lot more quality information without the bullshit threads. Those of you saying you would rather have the immaturity of NS with some of the garbage over a cleaner forum are probably 12, and are probably the ones posting the garbage. TGR is also a good place to buy and sell gear since most the people on their are a little older and don't need to ask mommy for her credit card.
And to whoever said he got flamed for having three pairs of park skis, you were probably thinking why whoever said that has three pairs of pow skis.
oh, and i guess having "short skis" makes you a pussy... even when you're riding 175's - 180's and you're only 5'7".
it's not me. it's the people like you who are calling me out.
i've had offers up to 600 bucks for the karhus, for the record.
seriously, i'm not trying to be mean or anything, it's just that outside of real life and inside of forums, people are mean because they can be without any consequence.
and i'm not just talking about my endeavors... but countless others.
i agree wholeheartedly that tgr is a much more resourcful site as far as buying, selling, and asking legitimate advice. but you can get some of that here without all the 30 year old dudes who make 500 thousand bucks a year and think they know everything.
In the 5th grade i asked a girl out and then ran away as fast as i could, it was awesome.
I like TGR because they people that do the flaming actually have some wit or are making a point, which is nice to see instead of the hundreds of millions of gay references people give over here. And yeah, it is an older crowd that generally doesn't ski park, get over it. I don't see skiing ungroomed runs on big skis as a character flaw, but maybe I'm just crazy. Just accept that it's a different site and a different crowd and you'll be fine. We don't want redundant ski websites, do we?
yeah dude i never said u were a pussy for having 175s. i was saying that the skis you listed for sale generally do not sell on the tgr forums. much like how a touring binding or a never summer snowboard would not sell on newschoolers.
thats sweet you got offers of 600 on the karhus, u should sell them before that person realizes thats what the brand new unmounted ski will retail for in 2 months. or on jibij right now.
and im not calling you out, im just pointing out some things that you should have taken into account before copying and pasting a newschoolers sale into a tgr forum.
and im not a 30 year old dude that makes 500,000 a year that thinks i know everything. but i did know you were gonna get a load of shit for that sale on tgr!
if you cant take the heat stay outta the kitchen man. good luck with your sale. peace
i go on tgr a fair amount, don't post a lot mostly just read the forums, theres a lot of smart people over there, I don't find it quiet as in depth, but if I want to know about a certain piece of gear unless its super park specific I will check TGR not ns cause generally there is less B.S., but the site doesn't have nearly as much depth as NS, there are pros and cons of both, and I am sure there are good and bad members on both as well, not fair to generalize the members cause of a few people being rude, I am sure there are PLENTY of examples of NS people being dicks, so don't waste time hating
we should have an epic snowball fight to resolve this...
long story short he overshot. tried to finger a girl wearing a skirt in the movies, but overshot and got the pooper. then proceeded to wipe the poopy finger on the friend next to him.
there is good information, and awesome deals to be had
it's a good place, but seriously, if you don't know exactly what you're talking about, they'll flame the shit out of you 50 times before helping you once
there are less immature idiots there, but a lot more people who are genuinely e-assholes
i made an account there, prior to knowing really anything about skis and such, and they just flamed the shit out of me and told me a bunch of the wrong information, i was not amused
"I had a dream I set dolphins on fire simply by looking at them.
haha... the funny part is that someone took the time to make a thread quoting what we were saying in here.
i think everyone should take a look at this and share the laugh. read all the way through.
this is my for sale thread over there.
i have no problems with the tgr forums, other than sometimes no response, which can be annoying. i prefer NS, but that's because it's a more in depth and better organized system...and because the washington regional owns. the only thing i hate about tgr is the search function, as it has no priorities like time posted or title set, and just gives you everything with what you said posted in it, it's hard to find the threads you want sometimes.
"The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."
The main difference is between the responses to this thread and the responses to the TGR thread. Almost everyone in this post is taking shit super cereal. Shit over there cracks me up. Most of you fuckers just make me laff. There's a big difference.
But skierjulia did make a great point.... on this site there are a lot of little shit talking kids, which is funny to me
but on TGR's site they are alot older and "mature" and make "6 figs" (though not one hair on my balls gives a fucking shit, thats chump change)
so what does this mean?????????
newschoolers = funny to read as well as informative
TGR = a lot of old people who are still such big loosers they are on internet forums chatting about skiing and complaining how the rival sight of "trash talking 12 year olds" is not as good as thier mature forums HAHAHAHAHAHA..... shits a joke
