ArchivedStickied post

This question gets asked a lot and fills most of the subreddit. I don't mean any malice or intend to insult people, but it makes it difficult to enjoy the good posts if they're hidden between this question repeatedly.

I could very well be wrong but I feel like a lot of the time it's asked as sort of a positive feedback loop and people are wanting reassurance that they should start skating. I don't think wanting support is a bad thing at all. I just think framing it a different way would be better.

Could we instead have more posts of people just saying hello, how old they are, that they're just starting skating and a bit about themselves? Added bonus of getting to know each other and becoming a tighter community too.

Or I could be wrong and be coming across as an asshole, if so, I'm sorry and feel free to tell me as such.

EDIT: Once this post is 1 month old I will write up the thread. Any other ideas / suggestions are welcome.

Browsing through this sub daily when I wake up & drink coffee, or after a skate session, I've noticed the same / similar questions being asked a lot (sometimes in the same day). It's tiring to answer the same questions daily, and it clogs up the new posts section from quality content that can get buried.

I've been planning on making a new sticky answering frequently asked questions. We've been talking about it in the r/skateboarding Discord a bit the past week, and feel it would help consolidate a lot of helpful information.

This post is for any ideas you guys might have on which questions / information to include.

My ideas for questions to answer are things like:

  • Pre-built vs Custom completes

  • Good pre-built boards for budget skaters

  • General recommended setups (street / park / cruising / etc.)

  • Soft vs Medium vs Hard wheels

  • Beginner Progression (maybe we could make like a 'skill tree')
