    Please tell them "SeattleGuns.net". It is a pity Norm cannot somehow get the "sgn.com" domain so as to prevent future embarrassments.
    Yes, Zombie66, I know, it is never accidental when you go to sgn.com


    Hey Dickhead I fat-fingered the search bar...............



    I would also be down for some Gun Show Promotion, hell im usually there anyways.



    Here is my small complaint, I use Tapatalk 90% of the time now with that said I also upload my pics through the app as well which made my life super easy, im not sure what was changed but when I upload a pic from the app it is super small (yes I know when you click on it gets bigger) but it looks like shit.

    So I make some wood racks. A few sgn'ers go to the show with their firearm collections and a sign that reads "we got these guns CHEAP! Ask us how" and rep SGN. Seems simple enough, until z66 trades 1/2 his collection away for Mossberg 590's and shiny wheel guns.

    Psssh, whatever it gave Bronco a black eye for me. No donkey punch required.

    That's what she said. I hear that there is surgery for that small personal problem you are having.

The problem I've seen with forum activity is that we've had a fair amount of people dying off, and not many new guys coming in to replace them.

    So I think back to what made me join this forum. What I think made most of us join up. Guns for sale. Plain and simple. Years ago a buddy says to me "hey I know this website where you can get awesome deals on guns." Well sign me up damnit!. IMO one of the biggest problems is the classifieds dying off. 594 had a big part in this, yes, but that's not the only problem IMO.

    It may be time for the paid memberships to go. I don't know if that's a reasonable request, or even possible, but I think that's what's hurting the site now. Originally it was fine, the site was humming along and it made sense to have a paid membership. Who wouldn't pay $2 a month to list on Seattle's most popular classifieds website? Now it just doesn't make as much sense. With viewership greatly diminished the service no longer justifies the cost.

    To me, that's the biggest problem right now. We all came here to get deals on guns, we stayed and chatted once we looked over the classifieds because this is an awesome community. But if the classifieds don't have any content it just becomes a chat hub for the regulars. We need to bring new life to the site. We need to stir the classifieds and bring back the allure of SGN. IMO that means doing away with the tiered pay memberships.

    But that won't do it on it's own. We need to get out there in the community and rep the site. Hand out cards at gun shows, maybe even have a table. Make appearances at political rallies. If this site is going to come back to life it will take work. So it boils down to one question really, that I ask of everyone, ownership and membership:

    Are you willing to put in the work to revitalize the site?

It's awesome lol. Thing is, at the end of the day, everyone's cool with each other. Aside from a very very few, it's not personal. It's just a bunch of guys ball busting each other.... Hard. Gotta have thick skin to have fun on here. Can't be butt hurt about all the "trolls" aka.... "Ball busters".

    These were all points I was thinking of when reading through the posts. This thread sure got people going.

    There used to be a lot more gun talk but I guess that dropped off with people moving on. I originally joined for gun buying and selling but learned a lot from reaading all the gun info from people that new mich more than I do. I love guns and have always had them but it I never had the expertise in different systems.

    There is a catch 22 with the paid system. Norm needs the money for operations but if people drop off, it brings in less money. Maybe a different pay system would work, like autopay, as someone stated.

    I'm glad this topic was started and that it was made to stick.

    My main reason for logging on now is to see Bronco's avatar.

    Re: This Forum..

    I came to SGN for the buying/selling but stayed for the local gun talk. Now there is too little talk about guns and I pretty much go to WEVO for that now and see several SGN members over there. The amount of locker room talk here got pretty old pretty quick, too. I'm not necessarily offended by gay unicorns, but it isn't worth my time to read.

    Re: This Forum..

    Jparks...and others who have been "run off"... why?

    Unless they were ripping people off, why not just ignore the ones who are buffoons? Or just merely observe the buffoonery for entertainment value? Live, let live?

    Lots of talk about dwindling membership alongside of talk about running folks off....and there seems to be a disconnect here of contributory cause and effect.

    edit: In response to the gentleman above being disinterested in the "locker room talk". I get that, seriously.

    But some folks come here for that kind of banter. It has its time and place.

    The thing that puzzles me is that there are different sections on the forum. If one wants to just see gun stuff, those specific forums can be viewed without expsosure to the banter in the other sections/threads... so why does what two or three guys say in General Discussion affect the content for the entire site?

    similarly, characters with whom one finds objection can be blocked. So, why run them off?




    edit:edit: How about a New ADVERTISEMENT tab along with the What's New tab. Results for the New ADVERTISEMENT tab would be only for gun ads and firearms discussion?

    Jparks, Techno Weenie whatever you want to call him is a future shooting case waiting to happen and is in a class by himself. I have never seen someone go out of their way so many times to play the civilian police card that it pushes the boundaries of harassment.

    Any forum, let alone a gun forum doesn't need the attention that guy brings.
