I'm getting kinda sick of seeing post after post of "hey guys check out this weird deck" or "look at this neat thing that kinda has to do with longboarding but not really" or "look at these people cruising" I know others feel the same way. Maybe just post something that could actually benefit skaters, like a trick tip, or an awesome new video. (I know some of you do, but the majority is turning this community into Instagram, and posting whatever they want, whether it be longboarding related or not.) Another thing, if you post a picture of gear, tell us what it is!!! Don't just say "these are nice pads" or "thats a cool helmet" come on guys, make a damn effort! It's not that hard. Also, if you guys take something off of another longboarding community (I've seen so many posts on here that came from reddit its unbelievable) give credit where its due, and say who posted it (example: /u/Steezus posted this awesome customized Bhangra on reddit earlier, thought I'd share!) again, it isn't that hard. Thanks for listening to my rant, and I'm pretty sure none of you will change but I hope you do. TL;DR: read the whole thing, it takes 1 minute guys.

thank you so much for this post. i started off here a couple months ago when people where sharing experiences and what they were doing with riding. It was a fantastic place to learn or ask for criticism or advice. after that i slowly noticed more... i guess you could call them spam posts. practically it seemed like people would google "cool longboard" and post the picture hoping to get upvoted and move up in the rankings. Thats not what this app is about. i seriously love this place and have learned so much hear and i am extremely glad that we are trying to fix this.
I do get it, though! I sort of want to pull my hair when there's too many posts about irrelevant or re-posted stuff. We all do it, but we should keep it to a minimum to keep the page clean, instead of having to weed out through a bunch of unnecessary crap.
you take your wheels rub out some lines then park your board at the end put your phone on a timer leaned against something and voila slide selfie lol you could even set up a fan to blow your hair or clothes back some hahaha
I have the urge to post a selfie now bwahahaha
@KLAIRELAURIE @mpoblete push up slide selfie. Wait than who would be holding the camera? Lol. I see a lot of reposts but as we have so many people and it continues to grow that would have to go through every post to see if it was a repost. I see a few not even close to longboard posts on here that needs to stop. That I agree with. But the cool decks or weird decks or racks or whatever that is Longboarding related has a right to be posted because it is Longboarding related.
