    if the tally of boarders ever exceeds the tally of skiers, the forum automatically redirects you to the dark sided forums.snowboard.com.au

    So they know whether to direct you to the cool page with all the free giveaways and stuff, or to the s**t page that just has lots of people posting lame photos and airing their ignorant opinions.

    @blackice

    And the real answer is..

    Marketing. We need to know what the audience mix is on this site - so we can pimp yo ass to advertisers.

    However, all those questions were designed well over a decade ago - when advertising was sold direct and Google & Facebook didn't know the colour of your underwear already. So prob not as necessary these days. I should review the on-boarding process and remove some of that old-school friction.

    (adds one more chore to list of chores)

    Thanks @Richard That is what I figured but I thought it was something new.

    I joined a while back and have never visited that page, when I did just the other night I couldn't leave until I'd answered that question.
