WeaponCrates is officially gone

Ads just don't bring in the money to justify app that labour. Especially not anymore when 1/5 of people use blockers too.

 

On that, I whitelist sites that I want to support (including this one), but it might be worth putting a very gentle nag somewhere just to remind people that it's an option.

Perhaps a bit off-topic but:

 

Ads have only just returned as the AdSense account was transferred and took ages to approve. Maybe I'll put a notice somewhere or - better still - allow people to turn them on manually (off by default perhaps). Still working on making this a bit better.

 

Thanks for doing that though. It does help.

Your not going to believe this guys but he’s only going to open for business again ! 

The neck of this guy is unfucking believable !  

Hes currently defending him self (and giving it the “oh poor me!”) on the Facebook Airsoft manufactures and retailers review group !

Oh, I can believe it.  Once you've run a business into the ground and realised that there are, in practice, no personal repercussions, why wouldn't you rinse and repeat? 

 

Painting yourself as a victim of circumstances deals with any pesky moral issues, and it's not like he's got any other marketable skills.

Weapon crates have (rather bizarrely) opened a sub-reddit to use as an impromptu forum:

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/weaponcrates/

 

Odd choice...

Easier to bail out of reddit when it all goes tits up again ? 🤦‍♂️

No they just settled into the only place for them, a cesspit full of dickheads.

Didn't know you had ads, now whitelisted as well.

Won't always show. You're more likely to see them on mobile and tablets too - desktop certainly not always.

 

Remember Google accepts bids from advertisers based on what it thinks you might like, so if it doesn't have anything suitable to show it won't bother.

I thought we'd corned the market on [being a cesspit full of dickheads].

 

The motorbike forum that I frequent has a cat performing (photoshopped) fellatio as its mascot.

 

That's why I joined it.

 

Your move, AFUK.

Our new patches kinda say 'fuko' if you squint a bit and drop the A I guess.

 

I want a patch that says "FUKO" now....

Weaponcrates

We have returned.. 👀

Hello Newsletter User, we'd like to drop you a single email to tell you we have relaunched the old version of Weaponcrates.

You will need to create an account as we deleted all our user data back in April to be complaint with our closure conditions.

As we continue our work on the new version, we held a public vote to see if the community would like the return of the old site, this is the reason we relaunched early.

It isn't a subscription based mail order "loot crate" type of thing if that's what you were wondering.

 

It's simply a website for folks to advertise their guns for sale and for folks to buy 2nd hand guns.

 

Just maybe give this thread a read from the start before you go using it though...
