    100% agree. I stated something similar about local businesses. Which are vastly underrepresented here, unlike this sites major competitor Armslist. I do think there just isn't enough user base to warrant them being active on here. But its a 2 way street. Contacting them is the first step in a mutually symbiotic relationship.

    There's little to no chance of us being shut down by my host, he's a small company and very 2A friendly. What happened to ar15.com is their registrar decided to kick them off and they had to move it to another one (which is really crazy, I never thought hat would happen.) I'm currently looking into new registrars to insure that never happens to us.

    The skin was just one example of the customizations needed. Another is the ability to accept credit cards through our platform, that has to be created from scratch. Also the classifieds system has to be made, etc. Once we're on the new system we should be good for at least 5 years, maybe longer.

    I sent you a message.

    I've always disliked having to go in and cancel subscriptions to things so I've never really considered it for here.

    In an earlier post I mentioned some stuff about advertising companies buying forums, I believe snipers hide is one they acquired so they run their ads on it. I'm not sure why we don't have more local companies advertising with us, but it's a problem that a lot of forum owners are seeing. I'm not sure if there are just better options out there for small companies like using google ads and facebook, or they just don't receive the expected returns from their ads on small forums. Their ads get seen a lot but it's a lot of repeat views from the same users and it doesn't actually generate any sales. I really don't know to be honest.

    Nice try , but the truth is You're a user that had the audacity to pitch a ***** because the site owner asked for a little assistance and you want to sell your stuff for free. Then the mean old man called you out on it so you decide to play victim. I'm sure it's not coincidence the your postings pick up about the time armslist started charging

    @Okuma do you mind sharing how many supporters we are up to now? The pm said 124 which I was actually surprised it was such a low number. Earlier in this thread you mentioned gaining 100. Where are we now if you don’t mind sharing?

    I really like this sight and there is alot of knowledge here. I would hate to see it go, had been thinking about being a supporter just haven't took the time. On line is a pain in the butt to someone who uses cash but took the time today to do it.

    I haven't been around here that long but between secret santa and a few good deals here and there. I have made enough money on here to pay for a lifetime membership. So for less than the cost of socialist media outlets like Netflix; I can support a local 2A outlet. Well hell that just makes too much sense :)

    Also I may be interested in a banner ad. I don't have a business but if I can make fun of people on it...I might be interested. Ball is in your court :hey3:
