  1. 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.

      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.

  4. 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.
  5. I was just about to suggest perhaps you might create an additional default stream for the entire classifieds section?

      I just posted here because the thread was locked, thats all. I did not want to make an 'issue' of the idea while the forum is still in transition. Just was going to post it as an aside to that thread.

      It's not an issue! It's a good idea which could help people find content easier who might not otherwise realise how to set up a stream (or even know that they can). So if you were to set up a new feedback thread I'll action a result if we can get something on it. Even if it's just a discussion between a few people about what they think other people would find most useful.

      By your command. :)

  6. Will pick any more issues up tomorrow - leave a thread in Forum Feedback as status updates will get lost easier.

      Take a quick look at the staff tab - bit misleading. :)

  7. Nice to see some petrolheads! E46 M3 Coupe (manual) in the best colour, not that I'm biased or anything:
  8. Simply put, no. An influx doesn't provide a credible reason to ruin it. Last week may have been bigger but it's not huge.
  9. No, didn't seem to do much, we're plugged in to StopForumSpam, they have something like 32 million records. You can see at the bottom of the main index how many people they have blocked automagically.
  10. We have several safeguards in place. Captchas, email verification, are you human tests, an email and IP lookup against a known spammer database, but some slips through. I'm afraid it's the nature of things. Best thing you can do is just report the thread - although bear in mind most people will have already done it unless you are viewing it in the first few minutes.
  11. Still not convinced that it would see wide enough usage, it's not like you see video threads flooding general discussion. A lot of people post their's in the "Media" category regardless of it being in off topic.

    Forum Rules

    Just as an FYI these rules may be updated over time, so remember to check back periodically to keep up-to-date with any changes.
  13. I can't remember off the top of my head at the moment, but believe it started from this: http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/uploads/lethality_UKARA.pdf I'm not sure why we say "legal" limits, would need to speak to Finius.
  14. Sorry, we don't allow the sale of non airsoft items.
