    Your replies have been merged.

    Multi-post is there for a reason and means you gather everything from that author in one shot. You expect a new post to belong to someone else. A properly multi-quoted post is a thing to behold and the very reason the system exists. Creating a new post every time takes up more space both in terms of screen space, behind the scenes and forces people to scroll further.

    Paypal fees

    The TLDR feels like: continue the recommendation of PayPal, add a note into the rules saying prices must be inclusive of all fees for your chosen payment/shipping method. It's not something to actively moderate, but it's a friendly reminder to create an open/honest sale and means you can act if someone persistently ignores this.

    System: Post-mortem on today's downtime

    Sounds like MySpace Your hard work may be lost with a future update hence the reason platforms don't tend to do it anymore, not that it couldn't be done if enough people wanted it.

    New Classifieds Feedback and Bug Hunting

    Just so you know, my response to this is informative - I don't hold the keys here anymore. It's very hard to please all parties here, you may have an idea, but there's 15,000 members who haven't posted their opinion on this. Do they agree, do they not? Zero In works for Zero In because that's what people on Zero In are used to. If you migrate from there, you probably have a hard time adjusting. The current forums are laid out based on the theory that over-categorisation leads to a lack of trust as a lot of forums/categories can look empty. This leads to.. "no one uses this, I don't want to buy from there", "this looks like bad advice, no one really contributes". As a forum that was growing, this proved to work very well. These comments have arisen in the past, and for sure, there may now be room for improvement (always is!). This wouldn't be the first time that the sales section would have been split up into more categories. I think the response is that the guys are happy to change and update, but just jumping straight to someone else's solution because it's "perfect" doesn't make it the same here. I hope you aren't dissuaded from leaving feedback, because it's an important part of any community, but the guys have a very fine balance to run. As soon as any change is created, people will react instantly.. they'll get used to it (although they don't like to be told so), and that will be the new ideal.. until someone comes along and tweaks things again. I trust the guys to make the right decisions on balance based upon their knowledge of the community history and how things have gone before and I would encourage you to do the same. This is the only place that does that.. we haven't been down for 5 months, had an insecure website, advertise our own business/run and agenda or have old fashioned rules.. that's come about from a flexible administration.

    Moving on + handover

    Hi all, It is with both sadness and excitement to let you know that I'll be handing over the keys to @proffrink this weekend. Therefore please expect some downtime as we do an internet style house move. We'll aim to get you back online ASAP of course. It has been 10 years since myself and some friends got together to launch AF-UK - simply because we found it odd that no one had created an airsoft forum called "Airsoft Forums". We were always the underdog and slightly quieter forum vs. ASCUK (RIP) and ZeroIn, but once ASCUK bit the dust, I think people began to appreciate the chilled out nature and relatively relaxed rules of AF-UK vs ZeroIn which was a pleasure to witness. Although I haven't been as active in recent years, I thoroughly enjoyed mixing in the forums with you guys and engaging in the banter and fun that went on. If you're here as much as I used to be (I read every post for about the first 5 years), perhaps you've been back through all the old posts and know what I'm talking about. Unfortunately, your passion can soon feel like your job and the same commitments no longer become possible. However, I know that the same community bubbles away today. Despite not being about the forums so much recently, I have continued my mission of keeping the board online, independent, secure and free from problems. You'll notice that the forum changes every so often - that's just because the software updates we install for security reasons also include core updates to the forum suite we use. I'd encourage you to try and get up-to-speed with these changes when they happens - they aren't being forced upon you for the fun of giving you something new to get used to, rather because they are necessary. That said, there have been some bigger changes over the years that have been to keep us with the times. Does anyone remember when the site looked like this? 2008: 2012: 2017: I'll still be around every so often to see how things are going and look forward to see how things change. Now over to @proffrink! Cheers, Dev

    Popups to malicious websites

    Probably have a dodgy browser extension or other adware installed on your device. You can rule out browser extensions by going incognito.

      Don't go mate,

       

      We give harsh criticism and we're a cynical bunch, but it's often always good advice that's given.

       

      For example, your current iteration of your "What Sniper?" Thread actually has valuable advice in it.

    Russian loadouts thread

    I think you missed my point. I'm not trying to change your mind. You can have whatever opinion you want. But there's absolutely no need to belittle people for something they like doing, or to take a thread off course trying to prove a point. End of discussion -> back to Russian loadouts.

    Russian loadouts thread

    This isn't in the spirit of this forum or how we operate. Just as you're entitled to your opinion, they are entitled to do the things they like and to talk about it. The fact it is a collective shows us that there is a significant interest on this subject. You're valid to your opinion and posting wherever you like, but you should try and keep things on track. If a particular vein of discussion isn't for you, you don't have to partake.

    Right of reply. Let's keep the thread on track with additional feedback before it collapses into anything else. A summary of the above situation can be posted by either party following PM discussions.
