Yeah.... no.  You're confusing TGR with Newschoolers.

Don't bother to flame me for being an old fuddy-duddy.

 

Sounds like you reap what you sow.

Not that I haven't met and skied with folks through Epic too, but with the exception of the Tahoe Gathering 18 months back, most of the ones I've skied with (including Josh) are also on TGR. 

 

Maybe I just don't look around the non-established threads enough these days, but TGR seems to have mellowed significantly.  People have to be reminded to ask JONGs for nekkid pics.

Ya they could just about take the padding off the room, the whole place is becoming SFW.

24 is much below the average over there. Id peg it closer to 40. Its for sure Gen X and older not really Gen Y. IMO gen Y is way to much of whiny generation to thrive over there. Look at the gen Y on this site......

But you don't disagree with the part about males with an agro world view I notice.

I thought Epic was famous for being fuddy duddies?

Where should I boot "g force" off to? Here I was going to send him to TGR.. Time flies.

Epic is a restaurant that serves drinks, TGR is a bar that serves food. There are probably more members that are are both sites (under different handles) than you realize. Demographics are probably closer than you think, some there act younger than they are...some here act older than they are but in reality it has come to where the sites are more similar than not.

Every time I follow a link over there, I give up on the discussion because there's so little content relative to the read time, or as I said elsewhere, too much noise relative to the signal.

Different strokes for different folks.

Well during ski season I only do searches on "Whitefish" and "Montana". Too busy skiing.

I haven't been over on TGR for a long time now. I have no doubt that they are passionate skiers, great skiers and many far better than I'll ever be but when I did lurk there I felt I was crashing my kid's party. I would have been right at home there.... in 1975.

"the forum is overwhelming big to keep track of." Yes, and often a low "signal to noise ratio."
BUT there is more breadth of topics and often more detail. For example TGR is by far the best source to monitor South America's ski season. The reporting from the resorts is crap, and there are enough maggots down there each season to get somewhat of an idea. Both MadPatSki and my son have used TGR to make connections when skiing in South America.

I frequent both, although I post far more here than there, despite none of my TGR posts having been flamed...yet.  I feel kinda left out...:(

 

One difference I've noticed is that by and large when members get into ongoing spats, Bears are more apt to become "seriously" angry in their posts, whereas Maggots are more apt to become what I would characterize as more "comically" angry.  Maybe it's that the bickering on TGR is more "good-natured," for lack of a better phrase.  Just my humble opinion, of course.

 

My own observation aside, I think Phil's bar/restaurant analogy is spot-on.  Thumbs Up

I remember my first post in the Skiing Forum on TGR.  I was asking for info on Park City for christs sake:o  They jonged me so good, telling me to pm Hutch for a hookup, as he was the director for tourism in Park City:rolleyes  By time I got the joke on me, I loved that place.

 

Guess I am just a 55 year old kid at heart that appreciates the silliness that place brings along with excellent TR's, great info in Tech Talk, the deals in Gear Trade and the hilarity of the Padded Room.

 

I can see how a serious person doesn't get it, but that is the great thing about the internetz, there are so many different places for a Jong to fit in.:D
