Less is more.

There's a lot of forums, topics, suppliers and even a birthday section. The more you add, the more diluted the threads will be.

One guy's opinion.

Alphabetize the forums. CALGUNS.NET and CGN/CGSSA CONTRIBUTOR'S' FORUMS can mandatorily be the first two forums. VENDORS will not move to the middle. I think this would make the forum easier to navigate.

(Right now I CTRL+F)

Unhappy iTrader doesn't take https

It seems calguns now defaults to https. But iTrader still refuses to take https for the URL of the post of the transaction.

Looks like I'm using https right now.

Correct.

The problem is being considered but to fix it currently would delete all prior I-Trader ratings.

Have you tried giving the URL field a default value of "http://" so members can simply copy/paste all after "www"? It's not a permanent fix, but it's an effective band-aid.

Make the mobile version optional, in other words let me opt out of it. As of right now I have to scroll down and select desktop view two times before it’ll take me out of mobile view.

What if we archived (removed from the front page) forums with no posts for over a year?

Can we add a pop-up note in I-Trader to remove the "S" from https when trying to provide feedback?

Maybe a Sticky in the Marketplace?

I assume you are trying to give a rating?

if yes: Copy/paste it, then remove the "S" from https

I use Tapatalk for many groups. Works better than website on iPad and iPhone. There’s an app for Android too.

I'll be yet an other person in the chain of people who agree with this.

Rarely do buyers or sellers want to travel 350 miles from NorCal to SoCal or vice versa to pick up a firearm, so the pile-up of all listings into single sections for all of CA just doesn't make sense. Recently I tried reaching a deal with a member who was frustrating/rude over the distance thing, even when I extended an olive branch and said I'd travel the 350 miles twice (plus up and down, so that's 1400 miles of driving). Apparently nobody likes dealing with the drive in any way, buyers or sellers, so it would be really nice for the forums to reflect that.

For people who are willing to travel, that's great, they can click into the NorCal or Central Cal sections The rest of the 99.98% of members out there will save a lot of time/confusion/clutter/etc.

Or, at the very least, create optional sub-forums. Then CalGuns wouldn't have to reorganize the forums and people could opt-in to the regional sub-forums.

I realize that while the forum doesn't "need" to have the sections separated, quality of life improvements lead to happier members. And hey, happy members tend to be more likely to become (or renew as) contributors.

On one hand it would be really useful in seeing what posts are considered quality post, and I can agree with that. On the other hand, I despise Facebook and its likes, and the best thing I did on social media this year is disable my Facebook account. Haha.

Fragile emotions do not justify the suppression of 1A/speech on the 2A, and labeling everyone that says something that you dislike as a douchebag/snowflake is just classic liberal/anti playbook.

Mobile version by GeoVario won’t let me go back to “Normal” desktop version. I’m running an iPhone8+ with OS13.2.2. The Go to NORMAL button at the bottom of the page no longer works.

How do I turn off this completely useless mobile version by GeoVario??

Is the California Gun Rights Foundation the same as CalGuns? If so, perhaps we should send out a reminder to use smile.amazon.com which sends a percentage of your purchases to that foundation.

I'm embarrassed to say that I keep forgetting and all of my purchases this year were through their normal site. With everyone buying online right now, it would be nice to take a little of Amazon's money and use it to support the 2A Community at no cost to the buyers.

That does work!

I had the same thing happen on another vBulletin forum not too long ago. When I tried to figure out why it wasn't working, I noticed that below the "Deal thread URL" block it says

ex: http://www.site.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1234

However, all the links on the site are now https://. Apparently the feedback form doesn't recognize https as a valid link, so when you cut and paste the link directly from the Classifieds it won't work. However, if you delete the 's' the link starts with http://, the feedback goes through just fine.
