    At the end of the day I'd rather have 20 Throwdowns a year, some of which are shitty, than 2 that are perfect, or lately, 0.
    Well, your demographics changed. The sub 20's are now thirty, those sub thirties are now forty and the teens you can't reach are texting.

    Well I guess we should just pack it all in then, huh?

    Or how about using our experience and knowledge to benefit the younger members, make this site more welcoming to those members, and go out of our way to recruit more of them?

    The last thing I want Bullshido to become is a bunch of crusty old fucks sitting around talking about the glory days.

    I go to throwdowns mostly to meet Bullies, although the exchange of knowledge is also a good reason for attending.

    Guess I need to get off my ass and schedule another Austin TD.

    You do, and I'll do whatever I can to try and make it.

    See Osiris vs JFS, or Kat vs Omar (typical of this scenario since it didn't happen), or DDT vs Sirc.

    Those 30+ year martial artists, who own their own dojos, are in a better position to do this but they don't.[/QUOTE]

    I'm sorry I am so new. I'm trying to follow what this is about. Who won the 30+ people or the others?

    I can find AT LEAST two years worth of unanswered suggestions. Is this where I make a snarky comment of who looks like they packed it in?

    I agree, but you have the KEYS. None of us can do **** if you aren't piloting the ship and giving orders. You know we are now going in circles right? Deja vu and all of that.

    That's true, as far as this website is concerned. Some of those posts were good posts. What's your problem, again? Nutshell version please. Recall it had something to do with questioning your motives and you getting upset.

    Reality check: I am one of the nicest guys on Bullshido, especially to "noobs" as you call them.

    Just not to you...hmmmmmm...

    This is an interesting discussion.

    Bullshido was bound to change, right? ****, Bullshido won already. It's a solution without a problem.

    All the information that was so eye opening when I first came here is common knowledge among martial artists now. Yeah, there are still posers and charlatans out there in the martial arts but it's nothing like it used to be. Those guys are just sidenotes now. People who seriously want to train and learn are doing so in good schools for the most part. When they start asking the right questions the answers are right there in their faces and the truth is pretty much indisputable.

    The people that needed to be investigated the most were investigated and the ass raping they got served as an example for other would be frauds. There just aren't that many George Dillmans to go around anymore.

    I completely understand the desire to keep Bullshido fresh and attract new members. Maybe part of that strategy should be that Bullshido should stop trying to take itself so seriously.

    Start a thread in the VIP section, I'll respond to each directly.

    I agree, but you have the KEYS. None of us can do **** if you aren't piloting the ship and giving orders. You know we are now going in circles right? Deja vu and all of that.
    Well things are getting fundamentally restructured around here in the coming months so any issues with that are going to be resolved. Truth is, this site operated at a loss for many years, and doesn't turn enough of a profit to allow anyone, even me, to do it on a full time basis. That's partly because I never sought to make money from it, partly because I don't want to be Lloyd Irvin and use my own marketing skills for anything other than effecting positive changes in things I care about.

    But at the end of the day, even I can only do so much, and this site has never been about me... it's about the people who post on it. The bulk of any necessary changes should be from the community itself, not from me flipping switches on the back-end.
