I strongly second this suggestion. I've only been a CGr for a short time but I've been shoot'n and loading for bout 50 yr. I'm completely befuddled by the plethora of jargon abbreviations on this site. Rather than appear as ignorant as I actually am I spent an inordinately long time looking to find out WTH a OLL and SSE were by perusing posts.

Give us Nooby Old Folks a break and let us know what you are talking about.

here you go, http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...hlight=acronym .. there is a reason why there are so many acronyms and abreviations. it takes too much time to constantly type out Off list Lower, Dimensionally-compliant Single-Shot handgun, etc.

After following the link to "General Discussion" and reading about 1/2 of the 269 posts spread over 7 pages. The original intent/spirit, of the OP turned into a Confusing Orobouros Acronym Snake. Of Petes, Repeats, Conflicting, and Multiple meanings, etc.

I think [which usually causes me problems] that if there was an "Approved List of Standardized Abbreviations" posted atop the main headers of the various topics. That the 28,005 active members [many with codger status who are also NOOB puter gerbils] like myself, would have a solid quick reference point to further our understanding and allow us to know WTH others are talking about. And better prepare us to take a more active part in discussions. Rather than wasting hours wading through hundreds of posts in a fultile attempt to find what one particular abbreviation means.

Further if the "LIST" was in aphabetical order, as was the OP of the list linked. But locked so only accessable for changes by Mods, it would IMHO, be a plus for the site by making it a little more user friendly.

When you open the CalGuns site the very first topic is.

CalGuns could simply follow the myRedBook example... their list of acronyms is exhaustive, descriptive, and enlightening.

How about a delete thread by original poster option and a option to delete an account?

This site is huge, with many overlapping forum topics, or at least very similar, yet different forum topics. It is hard enough to navigate without this "Super Dooper Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" behaviour of clicking "QUOTE" REPEATEDLY IN THE SAME THREAD. Because many are too lazy to copy and paste a pertinent portion of a post.

Recent crap storm over the CalGun endorsement of RivCo Sheriff thread as example. How many times must 1,000s of members be subjected to the same rambling off topic discourse of mrwabbit. Regarding his fictional gangbanging, drug dealer with a CCW, who also happens to be on the City Council and head of the Arch Diases. [yes, sarcasm included in large helping].

Why make members read the same "quote" over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Just in an attempt to follow a fast moving thread and stay abreast of real time posts and opinions.

When is enough, enough with the "QUOTE REPEATS"?

How about a "QUOTE" oversight panel. There are DUPE thread guidlines. How about DUPE QUOTE guidlines?

umm, how about NO.

why should the OP be able to delete anybody else's posts? if he doesn't want the thread visible anymore, he can ask a PM to delete/hide the thread with reasons why it should be done.

same goes for deleting accounts. if you don't want to be here, just stop posting. if you realize that your posts might legally damage you, then PM the mods to have those posts removed. But to be able to just delete an account and the related posts whenever you wish could adversly affect the forum by "breaking" threads.

Not anyone else's post, he wants to be able to delete his own original thread. The mods are sometimes slow to respond, or don't respond at all.

nope, he wants to be able to delete everybodys posts in his thread.

he already has the ability to modify his own post to effectively delete them, but he should not have the right to modify my post by deleting the thread it is in.

and that goes against the rules of the forum that they specifically DO NOT delete completed sales threads since it messes up itrader and other things.

You're saying deleting an I'll take it in a for sale thread that is already sold offends you and your post?

It doesn't mess up any itrader ratings. They have answerd this before, just use the welcome thread if the thread is deleted before an itrader is written. It ready doesn't screw up anything..

One thing that irks me is that in a WTB ad I will state in bold and #4 print -

Do not post in this thread ~ All questions, comments, offers etc. via PMs only please

Inevitably some guys will post - Hey dude, I have one of those for 50.00 or hey man go checkout PSA they have them on sale. Then, when I PM them and ask them to remove their post per my statement they call me an a**hole and that's it. So I have to delete the thread and start over.

I know there's nothing that can be done about stuff like that but it's my gripe.

I never said that.

I just said that if an OP can delete an entire thread, then he can delete my post because he doesn't agree with it. an OP should not be able to delete a thread because it didn't go the way he wanted it to.

I hadn't seen that to use a "welcome" thread.

the only thing I have seen is this,
7) Edit the title to show your items have been 'Sold'.
Once you have sold the item(s) in your classified ad that you have in the Marketplace, edit the title so it's obvious that the item(s) have been sold'. Do not create a post just to say your item is sold. The moderating team does not delete threads simply because a transaction is completed, so please do not ask.
and one reason for that was that it messed up itrader.

what If I post an itrader feedback on a seller linking to his forsale thread and then he deletes the thread, maybe because he didn't like my feedback and wants to "hide the evidence"? now, my feedback is orphaned and has no valid link anymore.

don't delete the thread (and how do you delete a thread other than just editing the OP to be blank?), hit the report button for thread crapping and have the mods delete the post and maybe ban the poster from the marketplace. you can also report the PM showing that they called you an A-hole. there is already a mechanism to fix that problem you have.

So if I post a thread, and it gets derailed and off subject in typical Calguns fashion, I do not have the right to delete my thread meerly because you contributed to the disaster it has become, yet you're fine when a mod erases the entire thread. done with this nonsense.

no, you, as a user on this forum, should not have the right to delete my posts by dumping the entire thread just because you started it. if you want that right, become a moderator. If you feel that it should be deleted because it breaks the rules, then report the thread to the mods with your reasoning why.

Now, do I think the mods may have excessive power, and may sometimes hide that they mod'ed a particular thread or post, yes. And I have made suggestions that would peel back some of the secrecy with a simple vBulletin plugin, but my suggestion was declined. It would get rid of some of the "XYZ doesn't like me, he's deleting all my posts and then have Kestryll come in and say, "No, I deleted your posts"", or it should show that XYZ was the one that was "excessively mod'ing" your posts.

Defeating the word filter is a violation of terms of membership.

Quoting that doesn't help; please don't. Using the 'report post' button is the preferred action.

Addressing the topic, the software itself allows deleting threads only to moderators.

I wanted to suggest a page that shows listings for offered/wanted firearms listings to be displayed on a map so it would be easy for a member to check offers in their area.
I'm not sure how difficult this would be to implement, but it sure would be handy!

(I didn't want to read all 19 pages of this thread, so please forgive me if this has already been suggested...)

How about a Want To Borrow section, such as; a sight tool, hand guard tool, a jig, a headspace gauge, etc?

I realize you could post in the Want To Buy or Discussion forum, but if a CGer is not interested in selling anything, but are interested in helping other CGers, it would be easier to seperate the requests to borrow.

Ideally the borrowee would buy lunch or a 12-pack or something.

Just a thought.

A purely political section that is not necessarily (specifically) 2A related where we can flog the culture wars pony.

Default MARKETPLACE FORUM SUGGESTION

I've seen and currently see threads being bumped by asinine questions and low ball offers mostly from junior members that evidently haven't read the forum rules. I've posted things for sale myself and have been annoyed with above mentioned because I feel that it opens the flood gates for all potential low ballers if they see someone's post and then it becomes the "standard price" rather than the OP's original price.
That said, how about instead of open season on whatever they want to post, a drop down list of options you can post. For instance, if you see something but not committed: "PM Sent"
If committed to buy: "I'll take it"
And that's it.
The OP can post what they wish and not restricted: like "BTT. Price lowered" or "BTT. All PM's replied to"

This way it'll keep the haggling and questions between the OP and the member alone without it becoming a public affair and it will keep the thread clean.
I mean it makes sense to me. The rules indicate to refer all questions via PM or post a "I'll take it" anyway.
That would also be the end of thread crapping.

What do y'all think before I send Kes a PM with the thought. Thanks

Can we make a OT sub forum for just games? Lots of cool games end up dropping off the map but if we had a single place for these I think it would be a nice touch.

Recent crap storm over the CalGun endorsement of RivCo Sheriff thread as example. How many times must 1,000s of members be subjected to the same rambling off topic discourse of mrwabbit. Regarding his fictional gangbanging, drug dealer with a CCW, who also happens to be on the City Council and head of the Arch Diases. [yes, sarcasm included in large helping].

Why make members read the same "quote" over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Just in an attempt to follow a fast moving thread and stay abreast of real time posts and opinions.

When is enough, enough with the "QUOTE REPEATS"?

How about a "QUOTE" oversight panel. There are DUPE thread guidlines. How about DUPE QUOTE guidlines?
Along those lines - Why don't we (you) have a function like many other sites where one can voice concurrence/approval/ditto/thanks etc. to a statement with a click so as to avoid much of the obligatory crap that goes along with commenting on a post?

A 10-20 bump limit on private firearms WTS would be great. No reposts either. The marketplace is becoming a waste of time. Too many delusional calgunners thinking their used crap is worth retail. If it doesn't sell after a couple weeks, its a good indication its overpriced and nobody wants it. Either lower the price or quit clogging up the marketplace with crap you really never intended to sell.

How about splitting the airgun and air-soft forums and create a WTS/WTB sub forum?

Perhaps a section where you can see the most "popular/controversial" threads based on number of posts it received that day, week, month, etc.

Also something along the lines of a "permanent" search. It would be a search that you could subscribe to. It would be specifically useful when you are searching for rare guns or multiple guns. You could click into the user control panel and instantly see if something new containing your search words were added. Recently I have been looking for a good beretta O/U shotgun and have been putting multiple searches in every day such as "beretta silver pigeon" "beretta SP" "686" "682" "beretta onyx" "687" and more. It would prove useful for others in similar common situations to be able to go to their subscribed forums section, or similar section, and see any new additions to their search lists.

Is there a vBulletin plugin that would allow one to turn off the viewability of certain forum sections? For example, I browse the site mostly by using the "New Posts" button to see what is up and popping in and out of topics of interest. BUT I would love to turn off seeing anything "OT" for example. Not because I don't like OT, on the contrary, but OT bogs me down and gets me involved - too much - into topics I just don't have time for and suddenly the vortex pulls me in. So, for example, it would be great if I could turn that off. Or maybe even turn the Curio & Relic/Black Powder. I know, ultimately, it is a self control thing.

Another forum has a "Like" button on posts.


It is a good way to give feedback on what other posters or the OP have shared.

if you are willing to set up a bookmark in your browser, you can create your own "new posts" button that could eliminate certain forums.

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...ew&exclude=159 is the default "new posts" URL. just append a comma and the forum number to exclude that forum, so if you add ,73 to that link, it will give you new posts, but exclude forum 73, which is the one for off-topic. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...exclude=159,73 would be that link modified to exclude OT. just click on that link and you'd get new posts without any off-topic posts. edit it as necessary to filter out the forums you don't want.

Could you consider adding a thread (or even a section) to the forum to facilitate trading a handgun for one of the same model? Because Sheriffs are under pressure to refuse CCWs for SSE firearms, and the DOJ has stopped allowing us to update registrations without a PPT, we have few options left.

This would be a place people could point to as a solution to an outdated/incorrect registration and the deal would be people would post "I'm looking to trade my new VP9 for another new VP9 in Los Angeles" etc. Once someone finds a match in their area, they would go initiate the PPT trade.

I'm trying to do this now for my new SSE items, but it's kind of hard to initiate on the regular marketplace forum.

Thanks.

Too many stickies. When there are more than 3-5 stickies in a forum, it just becomes cluttered and defeats their purpose because people start immediately skimming straight past them to get to the new stuff.

Thumbs up

LOG OUT:
It seems like I am getting logged out very regularly. I can be reading get up to use the bathroom and when I come back I have to log in again. Why can't I just stay logged in or have a setting (maybe one exists) that allows me to remain logged in as long as I don't close the browser or log out intentionally.

PHOTOS:
I have to log in to see photos. I think I understand why. I am ok with that.
It would be nice if once I was logged in and I see a photo in a post, either the photo or a thumbnail would be visible. It is annoying click the photo and then have it come up as something that is not as you expected, a crappy photo or not what you want to see at all.

If these are things that I can adjust let me know.
Thanks,

Quick suggestion:

It would be cool to make the "ignore" feature a little more accessible, perhaps a button on the users post next to the Quote/Multi-quote features.

I realize this would not be an easy change to implement and I do not expect to see it implemented anytime soon. I just think if the ignore option were easier to access we would see less trolling and flaming on the forums.
