For starters this forum sucks and is dead, or at least has been attenpting to die for the past 5 yrs and you nastalgia loving ppl just won't let it

Secondly they are young girls with no other worries than who the guy they like actually likes or when the Jonas Brothers are coming next... They don't want to talk with dirty old men

Finally, and this is a real one... If we truly want these new kids to join this frisbee community we have to take our perversions a step or two down (at least around them.) These new kids and girls in particular are not as promiscuous and open as we were, they may pretend to be but they aren't anywhere close!! You cant open dialogue with these girls by talking about your balls or whatever it is you non getting laid MFers stupidly say to girls.

Just my opinions on the new crowd if you really are that worried about including them on this website and on the field

I would agree with all of that, and add that they have also never heard of this forum or would care because it's rarely about ultimate stuff. There's just nothing going on on these boards to even talk about.

It's hard to have an active board with only 300-500 FDA members, 1/10 of which actually have an account. Mix in the increased usage of texting and facebook/twitter, theres no reason to have a board to get out mass knowledge to everyone.

While I agree with Casey's reasoning that as a whole the atmosphere needs to become more PG/PG13, I don't believe that that is why there is lacking of female input.

A more poignant question might be:
"Where are all the local players communicating about Ultimate?"

These boards are filled with expatriated (NW)Arkansans talking about all sorts of perverted gossip or trying to sell clothes that used to fit. Not much appeal...

During league season, there's a good amount of smack talk and complaining.

I appreciate the updates from the college teams.

Yeah, that about sums it up for me.

Is this a soco forum? Is this an FDA forum? Is this a forum of usefulness that strives to be more than our hedonistic tendencies allow it to be?



No. I do not believe it is.

You know what would bring me here more often?

-hot dudes inviting me to baller events(so what if I don't live there)
-hot dudes talkin about the ultimate skills of other hot dudes(videos please)
-hot dudes talkin about the ultimate skills of other hot chicks(are the YOLO/LS kids really that lame?)
-hot dudes saying what up(where you at?)


Let's get fresh y'all



But seriously, it really is just us older people, and half of us don't even live in the same city/country anymore.

Heather said, "cause you're all a bunch of assholes." Then she added "a bunch of chauvinistic assholes is better."

Given that there is increasingly lighter and lighter participation in things like this board and holiday meetings, i think we need to seriously think about how we build our community.

Lots of reasons posted, some I agree with and some I don't. The most telling to me was cam wow saying "they have also never heard of this forum."

Why aren't we telling them about this forum? Why aren't we building community?

"For women, engaging in casual sex still carries a stigma, and the prospect of being judged dampens their interest in one-night stands."
