Of course there will be those people as we get more and more, but UF has those annoying people comming in from ALL OVER the world, whereas APK will have little or no wanker traffic from anywhere other than the US. Yes, there are some people from other countries, but so far its only been people who already know what they are doing (danno, andi, mentalmatt, bach, etc.)

Think of it as a chance to try and get off on the right foot. And I think the people working on it have quite the boost in motivation to keep it as clean as it can for as long as possible. but theres only way to know....... we just gotta wait and see where it takes us  ;)

You know Skippy-buddy.  I agree with ya there, I have come to realize that I feel more comfortable here explaining myself, then I ever did on the UF forums.  Here, I feel, and though some people may, but its less likely that someone is going to flame me or bash my thoughts, just because it doesnt fit their own lifestyle or thinking.

So, when I start doing PK for Beer adverts, I am sure all of you will accept the fact that I am ALL for drunken PK!



hahah    you see...that there was a joke.   ;D

I deleted my account, but my cousin won't. He also won't join APK for some reason. I really hope that this forum does not get worse as it grows. I hope you mods are going to remain strict on the idiot subject.  ;)

I have to agree with several others... the UF forums didn't really allow a person to "gain" any knowledge. If you asked a question, most of the time you got flamed or ignored. I actually forgot about UF since joining here. I got reminded when I was looking through an old favorites folder. ::Shrug:: I guess it was time to break away and "do our own thing."

At risk of seeming like I have no sense of humor, there is so much wrong with that maxim on so many levels.


That's what makes it beautiful.

People see APK as an enemy of UF but it's not, it's only logical that an American site would come up just like all other countries. UF has become the place where newcomers go, where they can be helped and or led to other places. The people who are there are either newcomers, people who want to help out with answering questions, or the few that are real into the latest UF drama. APK isn't in competition with UF it's part of a larger collective of sites that serve to better help the parkour community grow in a healthy way, moving towards a better future, with pk beer ads starring rice and Scarlet Johansson as my girlfriend, because that's really what we're all about here. Thank you.

That's odd, I wonder why. I never saw you as a negative influence or a bad member or anything...

I'm having a hard time giving up my uf account because I've been there (on 2 different accounts) since 2003. Everyone from the Arizona area always talks on that forum instead of the designated AZ forum which I set up a while ago (hence the 75 pages  :o ). The only reason I'm still there is for that, local discussion, but I hate being part of such a hateful community. Sometimes I'll read threads in "the otherground" as it's now called, and an example of a contributive post is "yea i agree wit u m8  :)" or "wot u no yous just a n00b you ar totally rong". It really disgusts me how low the standards are there. Here, a typical post is about a paragraph long, fully addressing the topic and understandingly giving an opinion, It's way more helpful and complete being a part of these boards.

 And frosti: without beer commercials, this place would be totally lacking. :P
