Feelin' depressed? Don't know where to turn when the man's got you down? Lay it on us!...anything about kiteboarding, or not...

Yep, this is a good idea. Someone get on V's ass about the home page's webpage and all the missing links. I've had 2-3 people now from the beach tell me that the Instructor form on the webpage is broken. That's after I told them to visit this website. I can't even imagine how many people I've given the website to and they just didn't get back to us!!! Has to be 20 or so. I've given out the address to 50 or so people just last year. I actually made little business cards to hand out.

I've offered V my services to fix all that stuff, but doesn't seem interested. He's a got a new life with the kid now, but he could get back to me (hint hint) I'm actually tempted to just create a new forum with lots of new goodies that would really help us:

- Free easy auto-scaling uploading of pics directly to the site (and possibly videos)
-Easier Avatars
-Live chats at the bottom since this forum could use it to communicate directly live
-Updated links to kiting sites with "wiki" like info updated by users
-Texting to post messages
-etc
-etc
- and lots more etc

V's a busy man...

How about we first collect some intructor profiles and pin them to the top of the Open Forum?

Put the brakes on there Captn America. Not every one was meant to be a kiter......if they want to learn then they will find a way....this is a site that V has set up for the benefit of Chicago kiters, if you are not getting that benefit then feel free to exit stage left....exercise some patience and respect my friend!! :wink:

good idea Kris....Safety first!!

Now that the Instructor Profiles sticky topic has taken off, Ive re-opened this discussion and renamed it. Sorry if it caused any confusion.

I had to delete the original message....which requested a topic to post instructor profiles. (done)
