Create a Skateshop Forum???

Post by Heiko Schöller » Sat Sep 30, 2006 3:12 am

What about creating a new Forum what is called Skateshops?
Some well known shops that sell Slalom stuff like :

Concretewave, Octanesport, Geoskate, Coneracing...

can create a new base where they post news,pics whatever from their shops.

Maybe between Hardware and Safety???

Kind regards

Done.

I made two forums for now, one for North American and one for European shops.

If they become popular we could subdivide them into each shop, but we could only do so if there are only some, which in itself would be bad news for the sport.

For posts with promotion for a shop I would suggest we put something like [ConcreteWave] before each post so we know which shop they belong to. General shop topics have no special labelling.

Wesley I put you as a moderator for the North American shops forum. I hope it's OK. You can always chance it over to someone else.

I have no problem with a skateshop forum AS LONG AS:

1. The skateshop uses this website to promote slalom-related gear ONLY.
2. Skate shop owners are as receptive to criticism as they might be to praise.

This isn't an invitation to flame, but if a skater has a bad experience at a shop then I would not dissuade them from airing their grievance on this website. By the same token I would hope skaters who experience phenomenal service and prices would be just as prone to spreading the good news on Slalomskateboarder.com.

That's all I have on the subject.

I think it's import to discuss how you can sell slalom boards with pool and park decks.

What about us poor Aussie shops? I have been bringing stuff in from all over the world and fighting the high import tarrifs and taxes over here.

Do I have to post on the American or European Shop Forum?

I say just one forum for skate shops. I think that'll do enough.

OK, let's go for one single forum for skate shops.
