    Be-mag forum officially dead

    Confirmed.

    Same time as rollernews.

    Right man, isnt it fucking depressing. The only threads going up anymore are about how dead this place is. Between no forum and no video aggregation site, it looks like Be-Mag is really missing out on a few chances to capitalize on some sort of opportunity. Blading has a resurgence, who's gonna get those ad clicks?

      you do realize it takes a person and money to set up and maintain a video aggregation? The hotwire is the closest thing we have to that. At least we don't throw a shitty water mark on our posts.

        I think that facebook and instagram do that much better. Be-mag's forum has been mostly hostile and negative towards most new memebers for a while now. On top of that, since in the last few years it has been pretty much the same people saying the same shit and when most of it is negative and revolve around how bad blading is, it is actually not that bad that it is dead now.
        Personally we have a really strong facebook group in our community where everything is shared just as often as in be-mag before and with a lot more positivity.
        Instagram on the other hand gives enough exposure to more good local skates so yeah....it's all good.

          Sadly I agree, I come here maaaaybe 1-3 times a month if at all And rollernews maybe that amount in a year since their layout change a while back. For me here it was starting to slow, though not much, then after the “update” or owner swap my phone just never agrees with the be-site well enough to want to come through. More a chore than a form of entertainment. I didn’t even read the replies in here I’ve become so detached

              If what you posted actually posted people would probably come here more often

                :eyeroll: people love to say this place is full of negativity, but that hasn’t been the case for like 3-4 years now

                    Be-mag used to be tight. the anonymity and negativity is really what made it. It has been on the decline since Facebook came about as now there would be consequences to the negativity as we actually knew who each other were, FB/IG also created a competing platform for bladers to communicate. After that there were two events I think that happened that really killed be-mag; 1) Old School being found out as a child predator (is he dead yet?), I think that event turned a lot of us off to the board (I know I hated signing on after that, it made me sick 2) this new board was the nail in the coffin. Be-mag was an era, I consider it's era peak rollerblade interneting and now its era is over.

                      Any other Turners with that same first name would be wise to go by something else.

                            stoped reading after ryan. But I've the Idea beside of this problem. What if we build the frame to soul ratiodegree from 90 to 85 80... ledge friendly (hope without whopling) but imagen you can balance on a 90 degree ledge like you would have trucks and it isnt about the speed and precision you shift your weight over the perfect ratio.on rails the same or ya a bit loss of lockin the ness like remz did. but think about it... think again if you are able to force your boot against the side or top of an object instead of go with it and grind for moments only on 5mm outerparts of your soulframe but when you will jump off it sticks because the sides hit the frame. It isnt to late... you can always make wheely / soap shoes. tadaaa

                              How comes pros only once upon a time write in here. where did you where do you connect, whats a pro, where can outsiders say something, first stupid then it makes sence then they get hired and later fired. We need one NEW plattform where "normal humans" yes like the ones now before will do it and we support this work togheter folks not against. sexy words blabla i know... everybody knows but connect. Make it to Jumpstreet keep all this alive but work on it... I dont know with who I am talking to. But let's go experience is far far away in here

                                and negative more negative? make chris farmer grinding easier on negatives and the rest can stand still on a curb for 1 hour new world record?
                                Frame Center yes or is it the best? Soulplate slightly angled for full "everytime hang in there" and soulplate the oposite. Or diffefernt soulparts in angles and also in purple color. Thik forther say hi when you met a clan member and yes we need THA BOARD

                                  The message boards were such a fun part of my youth...I'll never forget the good times spent here....but blading is doing great and the decline of one message board is not the decline of the sport. Be-Mag's actual content is better than ever, and the rollerblading subreddit and blade trade are popping. Nothing to worry about. Thanks for holding it down Ryan.

                                      I guess all of the constant news on Instagram combined with the glitches of the new board are not helping. I'm still checking Be-Mag daily, especially the videos page, which is not as current either but often has something I've missed. What I miss is the 6 page threads that would happen in one day. There was a ton of hate back in the day here, but it was a lot of fun to watch.

                                        I guess start hating more if that’s what you miss. I loved those days but I’m not 14 anymore. That’s why the board has changed, we’ve grown up.

                                          Exactly what I meant, not wanting any more hate, just the insanity of it all was fun to watch.

                                            I suppose there would be more hate if there was a younger generation of skaters active on this board. It makes total sense for people to come on here less and act more mature as they get older.

                                            I guess the issue is that there are not enough kids involved with rollerblading, and therefore not involved with the board? Now that instagram is as prevalent as it is there is no need for the few kids that do rollerblade to come on here?

                                              Let me askt this: Is there more hate on video game live games, youth's social media and twitch today, ore more hate when we were rollerblading without a cell phone and getting on be-mag? I think the breaks we got were far better for us than the kids never being a second away from a smart phone.

                                                Is blading actually doing great?

                                                This is the first time I've been here in like 4+ years and haven't bladed in probably 5.

                                                By the looks of it blading is closer to death than ever.

Big wheeling has gotten acceptance, rec skate sales are picking up, people have money to spend on good gear, Julio has his 100% own brand and paying real royalties, AEND is moving to Texas, costs to pour wheels may come down. Woodward East is managed by the Velasquez family, Intuition Skate Shop announced 2018 was their biggest year in business, Shredpool, Oysius frames, 50/50 is back, skatebetter.com

                                                    Why are we here? I haven't been on here in years either, but recently started messing around on my skates again. I am seeing this happen with a lot of older people recently. I don't think it's just because of the new year.

                                                            It's pretty easy. This board is hostile towards new people (and hostile towards any useful content in general) and the technical issues keep anyone from posting anyway. That relaunch was the worst thing in blading 2018 right after Rob G getting shot.
