Question;

Postby Hddreamer » Mon Jun 01, 2015 2:30 pm

Can anyone tell me if someone is going to fix this site so new members can join or is it a lost cause , seems I can't get any straight answers about this , if it is a lost cause I'll stop writing about it in the forums , just don't want to waste my time trying to get people to join and make this site more popular if it's falling on deaf ears
Thanks , Paul

P:

I used to be able to allow new members in, but for the life of me, I can't recall how to do it any more. If Sherrie doesn't respond, I'd say it's a lost cause.
Use CTGuntalk or other related sites.

Cheers!

Hate to see this site go to hell, Sherrie responded saying she was going to look into it but that's as far as it went ! I have signed up on ctguntalk , but for some reason I like ctshooting if I knew how I would fix it but unfortunately I don't know how so ....... Here I am :wall:

I hear you.
BTW load up some 125gr GDHP with Alliant's 300MP and your response will be closer to 2000 fps!

Yes. Indeed.
Check out Hodgdon's Lil'Gun too. It's right up there with H110 and W296 but lists slightly higher velocities with heavier bullets and at much lower CUPs. If you're ever up by Foxwoods come over and try some loads with Lil Gun and 300 MP.
Peace!

Paul,

I have sent a PM to the site admin. As soon as I know something I will pass it along. I know it can be frustrating but keep in mind that this forum is all volunteer and paid for by the admin. That said, I am sure it will be taken care of as soon as possible. Also, lets hope there is not some health issue with the admin.

Thanks sr9 ,yes I know it's all volunteer I have tryed in the past to suggest a slight charge to join just for this reason I know that when ever the site goes down that it cost somebody money and that it falls on admin witch I have stated also in the past that that is incredabully kind and generous ! :wtg: to admin !
I still think there should be somthing even if it was a donation Option to click on and be able to help out
Hopefully it will be looked into and like you said hope everyone's healthy and ok ,

I will ping her and JohnB again. There seems to be no sense of urgency. I agree, I really like this forum. CTGuntalk is nice too but I know the people here and shoot with some of them.

I just disabled the membership approval module and anyone can sign up. I am not sure what was broken with it, it always worked before. If we get an abundance of fake/bot users signing up, I will have to find a new way to screen them out.

Also, if anyone wants to volunteer to help keep an eye on the site, I can give my personal contact info to make sure things run smoothly.

I, unfortunately, am spread thin at the moment with new web projects, so I do not purposely check here as often, if I think all is well.

Sherrie,

I visit the forum every day and will let you know if anything fishy happens if that helps.
