I've cycled accounts plenty of times and delete most of my posts as I go. Here you go. Just from today too.

https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/...7&postcount=22

Remember we don't know each other. We'd likely agree on most things. Don't make the leap to snowflake/sensitive/whatever. Just not into racism. It distracts from 2a issues particularly here and paints this forum in a negative light. Given the right lens and things taken out of context this could look really bad and the forum could get shut down under different leadership. So it's in the best interest, the main goals of the board to not tolerate it.

Thanks for the reply (now deleted) hunterw. I appreciate the feedback and will just call these occasional posts out and trust the admins. Glad to know they care. And I agree with your perspectives. Thick skin is good.

I love the calguns community. Been around a while and have only ever had trouble with a few people.
I mostly only frequent the marketplace forums these days, but here are a few things I think would be beneficial.

I'd like to be able to privately mark/rate other members so I can keep track of who's trusted versus who seems sketchy, rude, or flaky.

I'd really like to have a 'don't show me this thread again' option. That way we don't have to scroll through page after page, re-reading all the old titles that are too far away, or are for things I'm just not interested in, or are being overvalued. I think this option would be helpful in all forums. Who wants to see the same post for months, if they are never going to be a part of it..?

Also would like to have all marketplace threads for members have to be approved by mods each time they FIRST post an ad in each respective sub forum.
I'm so tired of people not putting location in their title, much less not having it posted in the body of the OP.
Some don't list a price, we still have a lot of wtb ads being posted in sales forums, titles with "amp;" or whatever 10 times in a row because they tried to use the &, &, & they don't have a clue why it's not working...

You can thank California's "schools"...pinnacles of education.

Default General EDC Discussion area (suggestion)

Just a suggestion...

Maybe it's somewhere and I'm just overlooking it on the site, but if not....

It would be nice if under the General Discussion area there were EDC specific general and sub-areas for example:

General EDC Discussion (and under that, the following):

EDC Pocket Knives Discussion
EDC Flashlights Discussion
EDC Pen Discussion
EDC Key Organizers Discussion
EDC Organizers Discussion
EDC Wallets Discusion
EDC Notepads Discussion

etc. or combine some like, EDC Pen / Notepad Discussion or EDC Keys & Wallet Discussions.

There are quite a few EDC threads spread out all over the site that can probably be combined into an EDC area.

Just my $0.02 cents.

+1 on this.
CG mobile is so lacking in terms of features that I (like many, probably) always use the desktop version on my phone.

Or add the following call to actions on the mobile version:

1. Ability to view Subscribed Threads
2. Ability to view members’ feedback scores and feedback comments
3. Ability to view my Sent messages

Thanks

Default Thank you Calguns!

***THANK YOU*** I do not have many suggestions in mind as this has become a website that I visit frequently. THANK YOU for existing in a state that needs a strong community of 2A supporters. If you keep the course and make minor changes here and there, this website will be worth A LOT of money. Keep it 501-c3 tho, down to earth and rooted in quality.

Just a minor point...what you are obviously missing is the purpose on which this website was founded. Check the top of the home page and you will see it.

Calguns.net® The Home of the California Firearms Owner's Resistance

Not sure we collectively are up for what someone needs to put in their man purse to get through the day.

Not to mention the overdoses of gun pics with watches and knives...old style crap that was boring 5 years ago.

For everything you cannot live without other than firearms, countycomm.com is the place. That's all they do.

I just did a search for “Caligula“ and your post came up. (iPhone)
IDK, try clearing your cache?

Improvements ideas.

Marketplace divided into northern and southern California zones.
Marketplace access denied to anyone under 200 posts.
Less tolerance for verbally abusive members.
Easier uploads for pictures. No having to use a third party host.

I take it the version of vBulletin used is too old to support this?

Can't speak for others, but I would be willing to donate $10 or $20 to support an upgrade.

Calguns.net apparently cannot upgrade without destroying all history of marketplace feedback from both buyers and sellers. Ewwwww.

I don't see that as a big deal, we had to start from scratch when the forum began.

Temp ban those that bump their marketplace listing with sold, instead of just editing the title.

Be nice if in the marketplace sellers would help buyers save clicking time by only adding

1. Type of gun
2. Caliber
3. Price (OBO/Firm)
4. Location

All in the post description so we dont have to click on it and scroll to see price and find location. Browsing would be much faster and people looking for a certain price range or location wont keep clicking on the same posts over and over again everytime they see that specific thing they are looking for. Thanks Calguns! I bought my first gun on here.

Up for your consideration:

In the Marketplace, create a WTB subfolder under each of the following sections, it might help bring more buyers and sellers together.
long guns
handguns
ammo
reloading
firearm parts & acc.

Then change the WTB section to WTB Non-Firearm Related Items.

This would make it easier to scroll through similar types of items.

Anyone else getting a server error (http://www.calguns.net/default/500.html) consistently from calguns.net? As of last night I'm getting one consistently when I try to go here: https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/...play.php?f=332

This happens whether signed in or not, but does not happen if I go there in an incognito instance (Chrome).

It did not happen if I sign out and clear all calguns.net site data from my browser. But as soon as I sign in again, boom...500 error. Thas was until I unsubscribed from that marketplace form, cleared site data, stayed on the offending page, signed in from there, went back from the 500 error, and cleared site data again. Looks after jumping through all these hoops, the problem has gone away for now (and I don't dare subscribe to that forum for now.)

I take it back...the problem still exists. If I'm signed in, I just can't go to the calguns marketplace handguns forum. The site fails with a 500 error
