The profile page is now the comments/feed page…. The comments should only be between friends, not available to all un sundry to read through and comment on… even facebook doesnt do this… Yes, we could all make out profiles private.. but whats the point of being on here then… we should be able to make our feed/comments private..
And again the ‘more information’ needs some work doing to it.. its messy… its like reading a long sentence, you should be able to write in paragraphs, it makes it easier to read that way.
And the next time you decide to make changes, would it not be a good idea to give us some advance warning … i didnt like the way my date of birth and year were visible to everyone, so I quickly changed it, and I deleted some of my comments which I didnt want everyone reading… There are pople whohave not logged onto BON yet and dont realise this information is now availble to everyone
I do not like the new format. Before I started my day with making a home page comment and then commenting a on friends posts. As people commented on my posts I could see the number under comments. I would go to my profile and open feeds to see which comment they posted on, now I do not know which feed was commented on and it takes me longer to do what was fun and easy before. I did not like to see my birthdate out front and emediately changed that. I did not like the friends pictures at the top of my profile. I could not access a few of the other changes yet; however, what I could access I did not like. This is the only social site that I am able to do because I am a full time on-line student and it was quick and easy to socialize on. To me the question is, if it worked why fix it? Please consider restoring the site it has been a real joy to me up until now.
These changes are ridiculous, it is just a plaster over of Facebook, I enjoyed the individuality of the BON page and work hard over a long time to get it where I wanted it, It said who I am and what I am about at first glance, No one had to click on this or look there to find the message I had set up to represent Myself. Your changes absolutely and unconditionally suck. I also feel it is invasive and presumptuous of you to make changes to our pages with out at least a beta run to find out what the general populace thinks. You guys may be the builders/ administrators, but this site and the individual pages belong to the people that put them there and you have no right making sweeping changes with out at least running it past us for an opinion. The only thing I can think of for this kind of disregard for the thoughts and wishes of the members of this site is that you are trying to decimate your membership.
If I have to use something that looks like Facebook I might as well use the real thing and and forget about BON altogether. I assure you this is the way many if not most of your members will feel.
This is just terrible now. The site was just fine before you decided to change it. Our profiles are no longer private. It still show things others that are not friends read and comment on. This SUCKS BIG TIME!!! I am really considering deleting my account. I know you could care less because you don’t get anything for me being on here. If you wanna copy other sites do it on your own. Put BON back the way it was.
Seriously why change a good thing. Maybe you should put it out there first to see. As of now it sucks. Very impersonal to say the least.
And where the hell is the logout to click on. It showed I was on here all freakin day!!!!
From what comments I have seen you may want to rethink the change.
1) You are forcing us to provide a Relationship Status? I preferred mine blank, as I don’t qualify for any of your listings.
2) Private should mean PRIVATE. People can see my date of birth, town, relationship status, etc.
3) When I comment on one of my own comments, it shows under notifications as if I got a new comment. Those notifications should be from my Friends comments, on my comments.
4) When I do get a new comment, it is a b*tch trying to find which feed has been commented.
5) I can’t see my own comments on my Home page. The feed should be all on the same page, not my feed on my profile page. This only complicates the communication from the members. AND, it makes the site more cumbersome.
6) I oppose the new format for the Profile Heading, where I have to read a whole paragraph before I figure out if someone owns there own biker or not, or what state they are in. That IS the biggest Facebook resemblance..yuk.
7) I like that you moved the friends that are online up on the left colume. Good choice.
I just want you to show me the comments that are posted when I click on the notification that I have a comment. Now we have to search for our comments. I get a lot of comments from like 6 posts back sometimes and now I have to search for where the comment was posted.
well noones is gripping abouthe change much WE CANT FIND COMMENTS BEING LEFT PLEASE FIX IT BACK AND WE REALLY DONT CARE HOW MUCH YOU SPENT BUT YOU LET A GOOF TAKE AWAY THE THINGS WE LIKED!!!!BON BROTHERS AND SISTERS ALREADY LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE ELSE TO GO!!!!
PLEASE GET THIS RIGHT SO THE SERVER CAN HANDLE ALL THE BONS FOLKS IN THE CHAT ROOMS ITS GETTING REALLY OLD AND I CANT PLAY MY MUSIC CAUSE THE OVERWELMING OF PPL ON HERE GET ANOTHER SERVER THAT CAN HANDLE SO MANY PEOPLE THANKS SMILING BIT
Our Old Profiles Give our Pages Attitude and what one is about as far as Our Choice of back grounds or music. I agree it is much like Face Book. It has no class its boring, as in Face Book they are changing things every day to the point of loosing people. This is a social network for like minded people, If there is a security issue this should be resolved on your end, as I am on other sights as well where you can not Right click on any thing, or have music or bling, but the sight is made up of their own idea, and different ways of interacting with people. Please Reconsider this Move…. Thank You…
Cant edit profile unless you put a ‘relationship status’, I dont want to put a relationship staus, im happy with it being blank..
I have just spent an age looking for a comment after getting a notification, only to find out (after frying my brain) that it was a comment to something I’d written on a ‘group page’ and not on my feed.
Did someone pay BON to make these changes… is BON trying to get everyone to leave?!?!? im starting to wonder!
MOST OF MY COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED…BUT HOPE YOU CHECK OUT THE PAGE.. NOT HAPPY WITH THE CHANGE….FASTEST GROWING PAGE ON BON…AND NOT EVEN ABOUT SEX. WE ARE JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY YOU WANT TO RUN PEOPLE OFF….IF THE CHANGES AREN’T UNDONE….KNOW A LOT WILL LEAVE…..SORRY…I CAN NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS SITE AS USER FRIENDLY…AND CAN DEF SAY THE ONES WHO RUN IT DON’T CARE WHAT WE THINK!!
Why Do I have to Click Twice to get to profile page??? Why not the way it was. You Clicked Twice to get the Feeds.
I dont need to see my feeds for 1 & 1/2 months.
I Do Like what You did with photos. That is Cool.
The Top Foto Was Nice.
You took our backgrounds away??? A Lot of Ppl put Pride in those.
BUT The friends List!? I click a ‘ ~ ‘ and everyone that has an ‘ ~ ‘ somewhere in the profile name, shows Up.
I Keep Track of my friends and if I click on and see if someone is missing or I have a new one I cant find who it is! WHY????
PLEASE FIX THAT!!!!!!!??????????
Well, I went to profile and I can not read it, since it is in YELLOW type. You have to highlight it in order to read it…besides so many other problems with the site. NO LONGER user friendly. If the page was the issue, then make 1 page that can be read easily and give us back our other features.
I truly think that the wall feature was a good one for many of us to keep in touch with friends without emailing them, and letting them know some of our feelings, and where we are both physically and emotionally.
Eliminating the photo comments for all to see is not a good thing. If you want to eliminate the top photo section, that is understandable, because some use it as a popularity contest or as a way to expose themselves. We should however, be able to see all the recent comment on pictures without having to go to each and every friend, or other BON members account to see their pictures and make comments.
Not having to join an event to comment on it, is a good option to have, because many of us might want to go to an event, ride, or activity, but can not because of family, work, or being out of town, and we should have the option of commenting without joining that activity, making it look much larger then it truly is, and giving the impression that we are going to be there.
Maybe having some of us that have been here for some time, do a test run for your potential changes, would be beneficial to you, and allow us to give some input from the local biker, at how things might serve all of us better.
When I try to use the search function and look at a persons profile, it won’t go back to the search I set up. It goes back to the point where I have to set up all the perameters again. Change it back please.
The home screen doesn’t bother me but the rest I have issues with. When I click on profile, it should take me to my profile (more information as you now call it). If I want to go to what you now call the wall, I will click on it. When I click on new comments, I expect it to go to the wall screen AND have it easy to see the new comments. This has always been cumbersome for some comments ie: on photos. I would prefer the top of the profile to look like it used to. Status should be optional and displaying birthday should be optional also. You worry about the security risk of the old wall, but display birthdays now. Also, anybody can comment on your wall whether they are a friend or not unless, I assume, you block them. With as much of a facebook look as the site has gotten, give some privacy too. Let us decide who can comment without having to make our entire profile private. I typically don’t friend people with a private profile unless I know them through another friend.
There is a bug with the “Search” on the main page. If you put in your zipcode, select say within 100 miles and UNCHECK any of the status’, the search fails to bring up any members. However, if you re-check them and hit search, they suddenly appear. Please get this corrected.
why cant we get our original profiles back. I had tons of very cool things I added there, videos and photos and such I wanted there. took years to get it the way I wanted it, it was more than ONE SIMPLE picture. with this format I see nothing different than facebook or myspace. no reason to be on here. PLEASE change it back. I thank you for changing the photo loading however.
I for one am not on Facebook so I really have no idea what it looks like but I did like being able to see friends comment/status and miss it. I also liked the old photos tab with further links to top photos and the search photos. I understand change is inevitable but there has been way to much lately and most of it not for the good.
Great site otherwise and hope to see it improve. Thanks for letting me vent. Anyone in the Branson, Missouri area hiring? Still looking for work. Will take anything.
The new format of BON is terrible. The so-called profile page is so unattractive as to make me want to leave the site. And my birthdate is the first thing you put out there? That’s the FIRST thing a person see’s looking at my profile?!!! Are you kidding me? What was the point of making an artistic expressive page of who I am when all a person see’s is my header comments. And to top it off my original profile page is totally screwed up. I also saw my playlist of music is gone. I’ve no idea how the BON admin could view this change as an improvement to the site. It sucks!!! If I wanted toi belong to Facebook or Twitter I’d have done so on my own thank you…. Only a web geek coulda thought this was a great change! Perhaps BON forgot we’re bikers first!
yep, it still sucks! I don’t want my page foreground white & u have made it so I cant edit that now. I liked it the way I had it before with a grey foreground & white text. maybe I will have to go back to another site too.
I feel you will lose a lot of subscribers, which not only affects you, but it affects the members also. Our friends will disappear, and it will be harder and harder to find new friends…after all, isn’t that what this site was supposed to be about…bikers having a place to meet friends?
I am not happy. I am looking at other alternatives, as others are. I believe you have started down the road that Myspace went down. Soon, you will be right next to them at the bottom of the barrel.
I enjoyed the music, the wall posts, and I really liked the top pics of the week etc. I also can’t understand why rankings have disappeared, and why we can’t have a chance to get our profiles on the opening page, like we used to have. Why should we bother approving pics and earning Bon Bucks, which are useless? We have better things to do than police your website for free, or with no incentive.
I’m sorry, but the changes are not appreciated. Why not ask people what THEY want? Maybe place a poll out here for us to give our input…after-all, we are the ones using this site every day…without us, you will have nothing
I know it will not change but now when you see COMMENTS – it doesn’t show you where the comments are – so if you have commented on a fan page and someone replied / or if someone commented on your status – hard to find where the comment is…At least before it would open up to at least one of them!
Also, when I comment on my own status – it tells me I have a comment! Thats driving me nuts!
Why fix something that is not broke. Sour grapes to you at bon head quarters.It was bad enough that you would shut the site down for whatever,but it is really screwed up now.
A lot of benefit rides generated from bon and social rides.
Put it back the way it was.
The only thing you changed that is ok is the friends on the left before the adds.
Fix it or a lot of people will be leaving.
Hey there. I have been here a couple of years. I have a dear friend on here an he sends me wonderful poetry on my wall and because he travails a lot this is how I know he is OK. He will send me a poem and that lets me know that he is fine, so I do not like that, but you say that it is a security risk so thank you. I also don’t like putting my info on here. date of birth an filling out everything, that give us a ice breaker to talk about what is missing. So why do we have to do all of this
Why can’t I make any changes to my profile. When I go into the section of Interest’s, Activities, Movies, Music etc…I make my changes & click update. Then I get a message in red letters saying there was an error. NO SHIT! Nothing changes & I still have the same profile. Even when I deleted everything in the whole page & click update, it didn’t work & I still have the same profile.
Also keeps telling me I have comments, but I see none. Where are they?????????
DO NOT LIKE IT AT ALL!!!!! if i wanted another facebook account I would just start another one!!! I loved my page. I spent a lot of time getting it just the way I wanted it.
Thanks for nothing guys!!!!
Why is the word “Intercourse” (which is the real name of the town I am from, highlighted on my profile page and directing people to another dating site? There are far too many bugs in these changes. Why mess with something when it was fine the way it was? Very unhappy with these changes..”If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”
I’m glad that the wall was removed. I’m very unhappy about not having my music anymore, and trying to edit the profile and have a wallpaper installed is a serious pain in the ass. I have to type in a url? Seriously? Why can’t I just upload a jpg? That really sucks.
you have taken away everyone individuality of their own profile page, you hid it under “More Options” this is what ppl liked and now the pages are dull with the news feeds that no one cares about. also riding group pages that had their profiles set up so anyone can get a feel of the group, bars that had their own pages setup so ppl can see who and what …… this was not a good change, this will effect BON in a big way and many are thinking about leaving because of this. bikers and riding is about freedom, and right here right now you have taken that away from everyone, PROFILE PAGES SHOULD NOT BE MESSED WITH.
~~I am so damned ticked off at these changes, and the changes are NOT for the better. My profile page is a mess. No background and no spaces between the paragraphs. Who is the Einstein who thought of this brilliant idea?
I had a memorial for a friend and now it’s jumbled in the mess. WTF…
I need to find a better site as this one now sucks moose cock!!~~
People worked very hard, to “individualize” their profile pages. To be able to hear what music one would choose, to see their colors & their photos, right up front, as WELL as “their garage”… this is what a ‘social networking site’ should be.
We all look like “clones” now…. no different than most other sites… you changed what people appreciated MOST about this site.
I can see where you want to change format for advertising… add it on the sides of what existed. Remove the wall… most really don’t care about that. Just PUT BACK our front page, with our work, our colors, our music playlist & the bikes… the rest, we can work with. PLEASE.
When you search who’s online, if you click on a profile to see one person/message someone, it does not go back to the specific zip code/miles/age search, everything must be re-entered each time. How do you go back without starting all over.
I don’t mind most of the changes that you have made, we’re human and will adapt. But I do not understand why you decided to remove the “Top Photos” section. Out of all the things that was on this site, I would say that top photos and chat were the most popular, now we only have chat. Is there any chance that we will see “Top Photos” return?
In your explanation letter you stated, “The Old Wall, although popular at one time, was becoming less and less used by members and posed an enormous security threat to members. A decision was made to phase out the wall with this update.”
I must question your motives behind these changes because if you were concerned with our security, you would not publish our birthdate! With a persons name and birthdate, someone could have a hell of a leg up to steal our identities. Think about it…
You have screwed the pooch with this my friend. Take a look at the number of black unlinked names on this page. They have apparently gone Bye Bye…………
I webt to the design page added this: http://www.kevingumina.com/hdskull-logo.jpg I know its on the web because thats one of 100 sites I run, I click the check box to tile, .. i then went to my page and still isnt showing up, just all white shit…. you totally fucked yourself … you should of had a programer keep some of the stuff people wanted… we cant add music or anything, i use that playlist i had on my twitter and a few other sites and who knows why i cant use it here now… i understand security, but bottomline is you wanted to add more advertising and affiliate stuff to make money I am not stupid I design websites for a living and the design is now more commercial just like facebook… you did this not for security … you did it mainly for more money revenue… just fix the edit of our own page, i hate white…..and i am sure 99% of everyone else dont like white either

if you were worried about security and you wanted to make money you should of imposed a membership fee and something affordable like $25 a year … shit i would of paid $25 to keep the old design up, and if you asked people I am sure many would stay if you offered that, … dude we all want to make money but lets get real… your not helping your site here, soon this site will be a thing of the past … i allready know about 30 people myself that are heading to another site…. so either put it back , fix it, or start emailing everyone and get opinion and see what you should do…. because if you dont fix anything and you leave it this way many will leave this site for ever… and your idea of making more money will be shot….wow total fuck up on changing it without getting opinions before doing it…..
I can tell you have no clue on how to make money…. fb is making money because its facebook, ….. you cant copy what facebook did they beat you to the punch…… here i am day 2 and still your shit is fucked up, watch your stats because your gonna start seeing a drop in people coming on here
how many people plan to leave this new SUCKY ass BON — this new look & style completely sucks monkey balls – yeah, it’s just like facebook BUT, this is the crap that killed myspace — myspace was number 1 at one time & did dumb ass shit like this & killed them — BON needs to put down whatever they are smoking OR shooting up & fix this diarrhea
I am trying to figure out who suggested you make these changes. So I have a few ideas.
1. You contacted the head honcho at Netflix for his opinion on what changes needed to be made. (Oh yeah, I just received an e-mail apology from him about his mistakes in making the drastic changes.) By the way, he has already lost 1 million customers.
2. You contacted Facebook and asked them how BON could be just like their site.
3. Elvis? (He really has left the building).
4. Every internet dating site.
5. Anyone who didn’t currently have a BON profile.
6. You hired new tech support that was outsourced to India? Because isn’t that where most American jobs gets replaced?
I may be from Missouri, but BON’s new site is definitely “Misery!”
Pay attention to all of the requests/complaints that you have been receiving, or BON may end up DOA.
As Founder & National Coordinator 3rd National Armed Forces FreedomRide. I am very disturbed with the changes made to this social net work , and the effect that it’s had on house of members and this National Event that I speak of. The forming of this National Event began here on BON,and grew from the Freedom of social opportunities you offered, With these changes, ride and event pages were lost,and are still not retrievable.Change doesn’t work well when brought on with forces,without agreement. I’m only grateful I have watched while preparing for this expected change. I have to thank you BON for providing the social opportunity that you once did..for the time that you did,
Founder & National Coordinator http://www.nationalarmedforcesfreedomride.com
I want MY WALL BACK!!!! I used the wall, Enjoyed posting on my Friends wall and really MISS the postings on my wall. It was a great place to “personalize”!!!!! I do not like the changes. It was a good, user friendly site. NotSoMuch any more..
Didn’t appreciate logging in to see my birthday publicly posted for everyone. Didn’t appreciate all of my personal information being on display either. Not a fan of the changes …looks like every other meat market on the web now…so much for standing out from the crowd of other free sites
Thanks for F……. up my favorite site.Whether you know it or not this was actually a place for real bikers to correspond and interact.Removing the wall was the first,worst thing you did.What the hell are you thinking.It’s for our own good,are you a government worker? This site really bites now and I’m gonna encouarage everyone to jump ship .Again thanks for ruining a good time.I’m sorry to say now that I’ve been a supporter of this site for a long time,that all ends today.Have a nice life R>U>B>

bottomline these changes were made to make more money off advertising, I am willing to bet money that James the Owner of this site doesnt even ride a Bike… he probably doesnt give a shit that everyone is complaining, all he cares about is making money period! …. if i could get ride of the “WHITE” and make my profile more my own i think that may help him save all this fucked up changes he made, If you want to see your music, its now on the left side under “More Info” thats cool and all but I fdo agree the site was fine the way it was. I totally understand that he wants to make money here but to go and totally change everything because of security was a complete lie…. like i said all he wants to do is make money he can care a less how any of us feel and his site, he obviously is so smart he knows how to make money… or not!
When I get a comment I have to search through all my feeds to find out who left comment where. I have 1 comment that I still can not find and it keeps telling me I have a comment. Before when we hit comment button it would take us to the feed that had the comment this needs to be back the way it was.l
Like a lot of people on here I do not care for the new format. It’s totally screwed up. I tried doing a back ground again and it didn’t work and who in the hell did the intros. Mine says I ride a & Kawasaki whych is my daughters bike not mine. I’ll wait a few more days to see if you listen to all the disatisfied people or not. If it stays the way you now have it you can bet that not only myself but a lot of other peole will close of there accounts. If I wanted a facebook account I would done one there. GYST(get your shit together) BON.
WE HAVE LOST OUR WALLS, CAN NO LONGER SEND INVITES TO PEOPLE WITHOUT HAVING TO GO TO EACH PROFILE… STILL CAN NOT CHANGE DATES OF MY BIKE NIGHTS WHEN MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE SIGN UP…THIS SITE IS STARTING TO SUCK..GUESS I SHOULD HAVE SAVED THOSE SPAM EMAILS TO FIND ANOTHER BIKER SITE TO USE!!!
I wasn’t happy back when the events pages were changed. Adding the map and taking away HTML made the events boring and cookie cutter for those of us who can make a great colorful eye catching event page.
The new format is the same. I can live with it, but my formatting has been been taken away. And the background URL thing does not work. I can do the HTML to add my own…but this new one does NOT work. I get one thin piece of a tile far to the right under an ad. I really liked the old BON format better when I had more control over my own content. Now I can’t even change the font color or size.
I realize this is NOT a biker site but a SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE for people who ride. Says so right in the terms. But the one thing I liked about it iwas that I could make it personal and unique to me. It’s getting more and more like Facebook with every change.
I would perfer to have my profile page the way it was…not having my feeds as public like this…I liked it when only my freinds could read my feeds and they had to look at my profile FIRST!!!…I don’t want freindrequests seeing everythign first…I never used my WALL anyway so feel free to take it away …I like the new event/ride pages you made a few months back but the rest of the site was fine the way it was…this new format is terribly confusing…I lost 3 full albums of pictures to this change…I canot get my messaging to work correctly…I cannot find or see my comments…when I click on commnets it take me to my home page and I have to search for them most times never finding them…we used to just click comments and i took us right to the most recent ones…this is the way the button should work!!…I cannot see any of my frineds pictures or albums when I click photos any longer…now it takes me to my own…I can look at those anytime I wnat too…I want to see what has been posted NEW!!… WE liked the way the whole phots section WAS…UUGGHHH there’s SOOOOOOOOOO much more…my head is swimming…I’ll have to get back to you after I make a list of the things that DO NOT work. PLEASE PUT IT BACK AND LEAVE IT ALONE!!!
The WALL is not what causes security issues in BON, the fact that you allow infinite people to use the same screen name is what causes security issues!!! Address that and people would not be cloning people and causing them and others problems!! I am not sure how you ever decided you could run a social network, but you would think that at least yyou would follow some tried and true ways! The profile part of your network WAS the only think that worked well, lord knows USERPLANE is probably the WORST chat platform to exist, ever thought of trying to get that fixed instead of ruining what does work?? You really need to look at your priorities and quit messing with what does work!!!!
P.S. Thank you for wrecking graphics I spent hours creating as this new ^%** platform cut them in half etc.
I HOPE YOU ARE READING ALL OF YOUR FEEDBACK ON THE CHANGES YOU HAVE MADE…99.99% OF US HATE THE SO CALLED “NEW BON” AND BY NOW YOU KNOW THIS! SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? NOTHING? IS IT GOING TO STAY THE WAY IT IS OR ARE YOU GOING TO CHANGE IT BACK??? WE DESERVE TO KNOW, AFTER ALL, WE AND I REPEAT, WE ARE THE ONES THAT MADE THIS SITE ALL YOU DID WAS CREATE IT AND EVEN I CAN CREATE A BIKER SITE!!! LOTS OF PEOPLE ARE LEAVING AND HAVE ALREADY LEFT BECAUSE OF THIS…YOU’LL BE LIKE THE REST OF THE SITES THAT HAVE D-I-E-D, AND BELIEVE ME, I KNOW OF QUITE A FEW. EITHER CHANGE IT BACK OR ONE DAY IN THE NEAR FUTURE BON WILL BE HISTORY WITH NOTHING BUT SCAMMERS ABOARD, WHICH EVEN WITH THIS CHANGE YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO STOP THEM. AND SINCE YOU HAVE MADE THIS CHANGE…..
WHAT IN THE HELL IS THE DEAL WITH OUR FRIENDS (PICS) NOT ROTATING SINCE THEY ARE AT THE TOP OF OUR PAGES NOW, I KEEP SEEING THE SAME ONES OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND THEY ARE NOT EVEN SET AS TOP FRIENDS…I ONLY HAVE ONE SET AS A TOP FRIEND, NOT ANY OTHERS AND I WOULD LIKE THAT TO CHANGE SINCE YOU ARE MAKING CHANGES OTHERWISE I AM CONSIDERING TO BE A GONNER…THANK YOU!
Biker Unity is looking better and better everyday,and Heavy who runs the site is online there everyday to talk to about whatever…BON should be very careful, we will be leaving in droves.!!! And as for your clothing lines etc…I would not purchase another anything from you after this last crap you pulled!!!
AND BY THE WAY…………YOUR TIME ON HERE IS NOT EVEN RIGHT, IT SAYS I POSTED THE ABOVE COMMENT @ 2:13PM…..WE ARE YOU AT…ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD???????????????????????????????????? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM…….NOW THAT’S A THOUGHT!!!!!!!!!! TO CORRECT YOU, IT IS 9:10AM CENTRAL TIME IN MY ZONE!!!!!!!
looks like someone is reading our ‘gripes’. Top friends is back, new members is back, I have found out how to create a paragraph instead of everything looking like one run on sentence.. hmmmm… getting there!!!
Haven’t had a chance to really work with this new format due to technical issues on my end. BUT, what I wanna suggest is a real time chat between friends. Like how FB has their IM feature. It gets frustrating trying to chat through messages because you don’t get a reply right away, which also wastes time if trying to discuss a last minute ride or what not. But, I will say, I do prefer BON over facebook mainly because of the maturity of the users.
WHY CAN’T WE INVITE INDIVIDUALS TO OUR EVENTS ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!????? That is why I so used and enjoyed B.O.N. ! For the gatherings and fun stuff, and to invite them to my shows and MILITARY BENEFITS!
What ? Do we have to PAY now?
I can’t get my comments to come up my album won’t load and I can’t see my background! Who ever designed this new format needs to have a plex-extamie done. If your un-familar with this operation, it is where the put a plexy glass window in your stomach so you can see where your going when you have your head up your ass.
This change is making me nuts! I work all day on the computer and expect to be able to come home and enjoy the site that I have enjoyed for so long. Very frustrated! Saw that I had 3 comment and can’t find them. Please go back to the old BON!
I cant believe you are taking this stupid so call social site for real, it is too stupid …….I been trying to get off,and out, but it does not let me.Here are so many dumb SOCIOPATH it is nuts, all i got as mail are Phishers ,that try to lure me to other same stupid so call dating sites .Good luck all you, you need it ,you be hiding behind your computers, while we are out RIDING having FUN and being SOCIAL.
The messages could be made a little more user friendly by possibly having the read/saved messages stay on that when a message is read and saved from the read/saved portion of the messages and not jump back to the inbox of messages. I get tired of having to go back to the saved messages to read another message to make sure I want to keep it.
Your members full birth dates should never have been displayed to everyone without their consent!
That put everyone at a bad disadvantage and is a security risk, exposed to people seeking to commit identity theft.
I don’t agree with doing away with the wall. All my friends & I have connected with nice graphics for every occasion. What happened to top pix also? Now when someone comments on your pic you have to go to your pix & find out what was said. I broke my profile trying to figure out what the hell happened to it. All my graphics, etc, were pushed to the left side so that one could hardly see them. I took out what seemed to be miles of codes & now have to start all over agian to get it back. My background layouts aren’t working right & I don’t understand what you mean with ‘Edit my profile design.” What was wrong with anything that you had to make such a drastic change? Put it back, this isn’t FB or whatever. I loved this site because it wasen’t like the rest!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks SO MUCH for totally screwing up BON. What the heck were you thinking? You now have my profile — the first paragraph — wrong and I can’t change it. Much of what I wrote before is missing. It’s JUST HORRIBLE. You must be very proud to make so many people so unhappy….
Did you ever hear “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”?????????
You NEVER asked US the users about changing and what WE thought. It wasn’t for security, YOU wanted the change so maybe more people would join! The members made you who you are and if THEY are dissatisfied, they will talk down about you to others or leave! GOOD JOB!! Who are you? OBAMA???
Well good going Y’all…You have succeeded in turning a fantastic biker site into another generic version of facebook…the ONLY thing you didn’t copy that FB has over you is their MAIL SYSTEM….been askin for years for that to happen, but no, Y’all are too busy f*ckin up all the things that we all have worked so hard and long on…and that’s expressing our individuality…OH wait…those USED to be called our profiles…I’ve been here on BON damned near since the beginning…waaaaaay back when there weren’t so many people on here…I, along with many others have weathered many of the changes that YOU felt were BEST for US and the site that WE use….never consulting or polling us as a group…nothing, nada, zero, ZIP…and to date I’ve dealt with it, but only because I could see the benefits once I’d gotten past the shock of things being changed…Well ya know what…Not gonna happen this time…I’m already looking at other sites, as are many of my friends, perhaps they think about their members a bit more than y’all do…I’ll encourage all of those that I’ve invited to join BON to join whatever new site I join…Biker Switchboard is looking pretty good at this point…I’ll also be contacting all of your advertisers to let them know that they too will be boycotted for as long as you and your team are f*cking up this site….This time I feel fully VIOLATED…you took MY PERSONAL PAGE and tweaked and twisted it the way YOU want it…well, it’s not about you…it’s about US…I’m over it…I’m over all the bullshit changes without so much as a word…I know you have the capability of mass emailing all of us…God knows we get enough of your advertising…which I have also tolerated…I’m sure there’s just not enough room here for me to vent all the ways that this is JUST NOT GOOD…what a joke this is becoming….
I hate not being able to click on the notifications & going straight to it! I have to search thru everything to find the new comment. I cant change the account settings to show i am online. I click save & it still reverts back. Fix this crap! I wanted a social site for bikers not another half ass facebook!
Event & Ride Search feature use to be my fav. when i joined 6 months or so ago. Its been changed,and doesnt show hardly anything. Ill search for 25 or 50 miles away, and itll show 1 or 2, then alot of stuff hundreds of miles away. The ongoing event option was especially good.
Ill check other ppls profile, and see they have runs or events planned, but doesnt show up in my search.
My profile says: Owns and rides a 1981 Yamaha Special ll and 2 other bikes. How do I change this I would like to list my other bike (08 Harlet FLTTCU) and I only own two bikes total not a Yamaha and 2 other bikes?
Bring back the top photos
restore the wall
Are you really reading the comments
Sounds more are opposed to the changes than for
Why did you only give a day or two notice that the changes were coming
I saw no dioscussion prior to the changes
I have only seen one email that addressed some of the concerns
Certainly not the lenght of concerns that was addressed above
This is the third time I’m asking how to change the top paragraph. I don’t ride an Aphilla and my boyfriend has two bikes, not three and rides the other one not listed. We need to be able to get to the garage and change this.
I really hate the new changes, I really hate the new site, I really hate having every post I’ve ever wrote on my home page, I really think its too much like facebook which I stopped using and deactivated from. I agree with the 99% of my fellow BON members that the new BON site SUX. I won’t be visiting this site which is really sad because it brought so much joy and many hours of fun chat with old and new friends. Please please bring our BON back.
While I think I understand why the top photos and forums were dropped, I find it disappointing. I was probably as disturbed as anyone by the group of neanderthals who took over the forums, and used the top photos to ridicule people and the juvenile sniping at one another. Still, there were a few interesting forum threads, and I wish that feature had been kept, perhaps with some means to filter out the truly objectionable contributors.
Why am I receiving so many spam messages attempting to lure me away to other sites by alleging that there is a female member interested in me but that she would prefer communicating on another site. Can these be filtered with a spam setting?
Hello, Neat post. There is an issue with your site in web explorer, may test this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a large component of other folks will miss your fantastic writing due to this problem.
Its like you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
This is very attention-grabbing, You are an overly professional blogger. I have joined your feed and look ahead to in search of more of your magnificent post. Additionally, I’ve shared your website in my social networks
Hey There. I discovered your blog the use of msn. This is an extremely neatly written article. I’ll be sure to bookmark it and return to learn more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I will certainly comeback.
Your children might enjoy this depending on their ages. It’s a good way for them to learn to follow directions. The whole thing was fun from start to finish. Be creative and crazy! Then look at the other stickmen that were drawn. I believe they are on the left side as a tab.
