Man, it is scarey the sheer # of people who don't even look at the site :x

Many people don't even see the sponsor banners, and when I mention them sometimes, its like I'm talking about another planet.

And, that chat has been up for over a year - c'mon guys :lol:

It's by that shout box on the main page.

Maybe in the next version of this site it will be possible to move the chat button and alert users that there are X number of users in chat or something.

I use Simple Machine Forum software for my sites and when I integrate chat the chat button states how many users are utilizing it and if you look at who's online it tells you who's in chat. SMF is much easier to admin as well then PHPBB imho :)

Yes, we have been wanting to change for a while. When we finally had the $ to buy VBullentin software, it was too late.

I used to admin another gun site, and we transitioned from Php to VBulletin after just a few months there.

However, the program that was supposed to transition the database did not work right. EVERY post with an image had the image tags screwed up. I went and edited every single post, and there were at least 1000 effected posts.

Here, there are WAY too many to deal with if that happens again. So, we decided just to leave it as is, at least for now (and this was about a year ago)

Ok, thanks. I'll PM ya when I get the chance. There are some plans down the pike to make some changes here, though. And, I think we may just have to bite it and try different software soon, though.

Yay for forum changes but I love the layout of the forum so I would hate to see that changed :oops:
