Welcome to the new site!

We've been working on it all night and will be for probably the whole weekend, but it's now at the point where we think we can at least open the doors up.

Please post any questions or concerns you may have in this thread and I will try my best to address them as quickly as I can. Also post any bugs/issues you find anywhere on the site, I'm sure we'll have a couple pop up today and tomorrow.

Thanks! And I know it's a lot different, but I promise after a day or two you'll like it, it just works so much better.


UPDATE 3-24-16

It's been a few days on the new platform and we seem pretty stable. What does everything think so far?

Feel free to voice any complaints or concerns in here. (some good stuff would be nice too! :D )

One thing I've heard is complaints about Admins having the ability to read a person's private messages. I don't really understand the outrage, all admins on forums can see all your messages if they wanted to, I'm just upfront about it. The only time I'll ever look is if we're trying to resolve an issue for some reason. Most of the time it's just to verify facts about a deal gone bad.

I like it. Good job and thanks for all the hard work you've been putting in.

At the moment the thing that jumps out at me is trying to set my preferences to change how many posts show up on a page... the Trump thread, for instance, has gone from something like 9 pages to 30+. I don't see the option anywhere to change how many posts are displayed per page for me. Any suggestions?

Bumped an old classified ad. Went to "new posts" and it doesn't show up. Are the classifieds still a part of the forum or sectioned off?

Another member just bumped a classified and his showed up under "new posts". Could it be just some of the sub-forums?

So this is how it works. When you click "new posts" it only shows stuff that is new to you. If you were the last to post in your thread then there is nothing new to see and t won't show up. If you click "What's New" it will show all the newest stuff whether you've seen it or not.

I recommend that instead of bumping your ad you use the "Post an ad" link at the top to start a new one in the new system.

Will do. I did just noticed the Whats New and it worked as you described.

Like the new format, looking for a non-firearm ad I posted yesterday, can't seem to locate it?

NM, just noticed the "notice"...
