    Forum Time

    Says "This post has been edited by smallbore: Today, 05:06 PM" for me in the Glasgow post that you refer to which says to me that it's your profile settings. Can you have a look at your board settings and let me know if your time zone and DST correction is set correctly? Cheers Neil

    Hi Richard, Welcome on board ... I have to admit that this site was always setup with Target shooting in mind and mainly Olympic disciplines. You're right about getting clay on board but I'm not really for the going down the hunting route tbh - I believe there are plenty of other sites out there serving that purpose. Thanks Neil

    Well guys and gals, It's been over 5.5 years now since starting the forum and it has grown slowly but steadily, however I still feel that it could grow exponentially with a little help from the current membership. If I can therefore ask those who do not mind, could you please help by raising awareness in your local clubs and counties to try and turn this into the target shooting forum on the Internet. It's already pretty high within Google's search results for certain keywords but can always benefit from more members. There are so many other things I would like to do with the site but at the moment, there are simply not enough hours in the day - one day though Many thanks Neil

    Hi, There is a simple Help system (button at the top right of the screen), and some hints in people's post (that you would need to search for). Underneath each person's post there should be +Quote and "Reply buttons. If you click on the the Quote button it will toggle between +Quote and -Quote. +Quote indicates that if you then click on "Reply you will be quoting that person's text. If the quote button is set to -Quote you obviously won't be quoting them. Cheers Neil

    Steve, Colin, All you have to do is ask Gents you have a login name and also a display name which the public see. Both can be changed if you want, or simply the display name. Colin, the reason you must have signed up with Coiln was that Colin had already gone to one of my club members You could have <firstname><lastname>, or something else if you wish. Best PM me so I don't miss it

    Guys, Thanks for all the suggestions and taken on board. As I'm sure you're aware that I run the forum when I can basically and have to leave it to 'self-police' as I simply do not have the time between work (still here at this time on a Fri night ) and training at a sufficient level to represent my country. The forum actually now has the ability for subscriptions for example. I've deliberately kept it away from a paid resource but Robert, going by your suggestion and playing on it a little ... maybe each club that wanted to a section could pay a nominal fee per year towards hosting. Being honest I would also probably need to look towards some junior admins (on top of the current moderators) to help with the accepting of new registrations etc. Steve, your point about the forum not looking active is a very valid point. The reason it is like this is to prevent unwanted attention so to speak. The last thing I want is critics who are not interested in our sport and cannot contribute or add any value. I actually visualise more than just a forum but the work to plan and set it up is what puts me off right now. Like the ideal of clothing etc - an online shop Cheers folks, keep the ideas coming!

    Upgrading The Forum

    Thanks Robert, it was removed when the 2.2.0 version came out. I need to find a few mins to look into it again. There is now a subscription module but as far as I can see that dictates how much the subs should be hence I haven't done anything with that

    Upgrading The Forum

    Sorry if you noticed a slight 'glitch' in service tonight but I've just upgrade from 2.2.0 to 2.30. Again, mainly on the admin side are where the improvements lie but from your point of view the searching should be a little quicker now since I've reindexed the board.

    Thought you weren't the seller?

    It does, however the RSS feed will obviously only work on visible forums and since most of the shooting forums are hidden for non-members ...

    Anschutz Laminate Stock

    Looks like Mr Watterson was the successful winner. Thought it was pretty expensive until I saw the Gemini hook in the bundle too
