    So that Nigerian prince isn't really going to send me his inheritance?

    I'll write a STRONGLY worded letter asking for my cash back!

    This is an amusing thread. Y'all didn't really think that a firearms community would welcome the corporatization of their favored interwebs hangout did you? Ah well, c'est la vie.

    Already discussed this with Mike. He has his theories on why its broken. I have been collecting info on it from post reports and will be working with our operations team to get it fixed as soon as possible.

    At least you have some ratings. Some, lol. Mine are still only from some Star Wars models I bought from Ranger two Christmases ago. Finally made a couple firearms-related transactions, only to have the feedback break.

    Not looking for enhancements, just want to make sure being able to legally buy and sell firearms by posting and answering posts on NYF is not going to go away.

    No plans to make it go away. It's always been a big part of the site, and as long as we can stay within the laws, we're good.

    Restore full access to all the members that have been restricted from some areas of the site. Those with perma-bans like Juano_NY and Shootsmuch and Courier, sayonara boys. But we've lost members like Thughes and meketrefe that contributed a TON to the firearm side of discussions (that's what we're about here, right?), but were restricted because they may have gotten a little salty on the political side of the board (not for nothing, but this is the new normal in NY if you're a gun owner). You're either on the site, or you're off the site.

    It appears to already have been done. Things like this though, where specific usernames are used, always get to me for a few different reasons (by this I mean any discussion of bans or restrictions or whatever). For one, people might be assuming a great deal without really knowing much. Different issues with different users are all unique. Even more importantly, issues between a user and the staff are private with that user. Of course on the users end they can go around saying whatever they want and wherever they want, and it doesn't need to be true (and really never is, at least not the whole story) because they have the assurance we're not going to go countering their story with the truth because it's no one else's business.

    Anyway, as far the restrictions thing went, I see your point in regard to, "You're either on the site, or you're off the site." , but the whole purpose of the thing was not to lose members like you're talking about while at the same time making the rules not be applied differently based on a user's popularity. A lot of people got and appreciated that idea, most I'd say , but a few very vocal people didn't. It would seem the experiment has ended now though so it makes no difference one way or the other.

    Wow..... You guys should have looked around before selling out - Longislandfirearms was recently bought up by VS - and the site is dying. most of us jumped ship.

    I've only posted here a couple times, but check in and read..... I hope this site doesn't go stagnant like LIF has.

    Thanks for the quick reply HEX.

    The two usernames I mentioned in my post I have spent plenty of time with in person outside this board, so I've heard their side of the story. There actually were others that I intended to mention (but didn't and won't, even though I'd like to see them back... and at least one of them has posted in this thread), but I don't have first hand knowledge of why they were restricted. Glad to hear that the experiment is ended, I'll let Mek and Thughes know, hopefully they will return to being contributing members.

    The three I mentioned with perma-bans were obvious trolls, and deserved to be off the site. Good riddance.

    I just wanted to comment on this quick. Be aware that the mods and Hex weren't involved with this. To my knowledge, we're all going to stay on as staff and continue what we've been doing. We weren't involved in what happened behind closed doors, and I found out via this thread just like other members. I'm not going to pass judgment yet and I hope this change is nothing but good things for the sight. It looks like they're looking to get some things fixed that weren't, and that's a good thing.
