Calguns Default Style
As part of the effort to optimize and streamline CGN to deal with the recent slow downs and crashes due to a huge spike in traffic and new members I have set the default style for the forum back to the more vanilla original (1.0) style.

The 1.1 style is somewhat more server intensive do to many of the plug-ins and social media links/tie-ins. I am hoping that by minimizing these various plug-ins and links we can lessen the load on both the app server and the db server.

If you really like the 1.1 skin it is still available by scrolling down to the lower left corner of the page and using the style selector.

Thanks, I am good with 1.0 to keep us working, hopefully others agree.

Whatever makes CGN run smoother is good by me.

Thanks, Kes! I agree with Akers. I've always been running the 1.0 style anyway. It's just fine with me. :thumbsup:

Definitely. Thanks for the changes.

Definitely a huge improvement, Thanks to all involved.

I wondered about the "NEW" Look but if it makes it work better then let it be...

desertexplore 01-17-2013 12:34 PM

Thank you for taking care of business.

SelfGovernor 01-17-2013 12:57 PM

1.0 is fine, seems to be faster.

Thanks for working on this.

I like the new look. Hope it cures the occasional double posts. Keep up the good work.

Patriotdoc 01-17-2013 11:56 PM

Please keep Calguns as fast as possible whatever it takes. If this needs money and hardware to make it even faster (especially the iPhone mobile app) I am sure many of us would be more than willing to contribute funds as time is money and I spend way too much time waiting for the pages on the comp and on the iPhone app to load. Thanks!

Loopwell 01-18-2013 12:14 AM

Thank you Sir.

RedFord150 01-18-2013 12:44 PM

Thank you, Kes.
Anything you can do too keep the site running is ok with me.
Hopefully, some of these new visitors will sign up and send a check.

Paul S 01-18-2013 3:54 PM

Yes indeed. 1.0 is fine..thanks for the info Kes

Rider1k 01-18-2013 4:10 PM

I actually like the 1.0. Whatever it takes to keep us up and running I am good with

liketoshoot 01-18-2013 5:30 PM

Me like this, going old school!

blockster 01-18-2013 8:32 PM

i agree with AmericanFreedom, i miss the ode' to the Supreme Court. But there is alot less lag between getting on the home page, and thread to thread.

Sakiri 01-19-2013 12:16 AM

Aye, it seems to be running faster. And Im not getting database errors at 2 am anymore!

I just went to post in a thread and hit the post button twice(on an ebook reader with a funky touchscreen) and it said i was trying to post a dupe of a post made in the past 5 min, then redirected to the thread post i made.

Its nice to not doublepost.

I actually forgot how much I liked 1.0 haha nice

SouperMan 01-19-2013 10:30 PM

I was wondering what happened to the Calguns logo...

Good to hear, I'm willing to forgo social media links and the logo for smoother performance.

HaroldMariotte 01-29-2013 2:18 AM

That CalGuns logo seems cool, I like it,the bear seems to attack someone but is moving in a cool way.

SCM 02-10-2013 10:35 AM

Thanks for hint on the link to different versions. The problem I have is on an android, search function only works if using advanced. The mobile search is great. But for some reason it keeps changing versions on me. At least now I know where to change it back.

HaroldMariotte 02-28-2013 2:33 AM

Thank you for the link this will help my android mobile.

Sennasixty8 02-28-2013 8:05 AM

I use the iphone link at work, minimizes the banners and logos, less attn drawn by onlookers and mgmt. ;)

orangeusa 03-04-2013 1:52 PM

I set to 1.1 a week ago never had so many timeouts. BLESS YOU! 1.0 is just fine - it ain't broke.. :)


HappyDaze 03-07-2013 4:14 AM

Thank God! (and Calgun staff and management) I could not get on despite doing instructions on Calguns,org (my daughter tried for me). I know very little about computers and the language to change things. I also forget things as fast as I hear them. So Thank You very much for taking your time and effort to fix and maintain this fantastic website. I was so happy when it came on for me this morning, Good Job Calguns and Thanks!!!!! HappyDaze :D
