Guns Network
Platinum Contributor Today we have made some permission changes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today we have rolled back Registered Members permissions...

If you are having problems in the following areas below, it is because we have rolled back the privileges, so Registered Members can no longer:

use Private Messages
Cannot Edited posts
Post pictures
Play Arcades
Cannot use SEARCH feature
Cannot view other members profile
Cannot use Signatures
HOSTING PICTURES on our Server

They will have to pay us $20.00 a year for the above privileges which equals 0.06 a day or $1.66 a month. The servers and software and the time spent cost way more then that.

If the members decide to upgrade then everything they knew before will be the same. If folks have already contributed in the last 9 months $5.00 or $10.00 then they just need to contribute the difference and please send us a copy of your receipt or how you paid so we can look up your record of the transaction.

Folks Guns Network has been buying ALL the BEER, SNACKS and paying for the CABLE BILL for the last 8 years.

It is about time members start contributing to Guns Network and start putting a little money in the hat!

To upgrade today click on the "Membership Upgrade Center" (in YELLOW) up above in the blue bar area. Please allow uo to 4 to 6 hours to have your permissions changed due to staff not being around 24/7.

Good news is once you have upgraded you will have 2 chances towards the Guns Network Raffle!

UNREAL. That's a first that I've ever seen on any kind of talk forums. (At least that I've ever visited.)

But it doesn't surprise me from what I have heard about the management booting scores of people out of there for criticizing products or services.
I myself was a bit taken aback when I read the introduction by the management warning me and other subscribers that it was an adult web site, and if I couldn't handle the content then I can GO FU*K OFF!

This is very crude and unprofessional. I don't know who the owners are, but from the image I am getting, I don't like them.

They are simply driving subscribers to better run websites like AR15

hahahahahahaha they are running themselves into the ground head first and people still follow them. I bet if dthor stuck a roman candle up his ass and jumped off a cliff he would have a shit load of .nutz members follow him.


I really like this quote "Just erase what you learned on this board and think, wow, my AKs would really suck right about now if it wasnt for gunsnet/ak-47.net" Hmmm i wonder what the people who sent money to Joeken and guns to the goosh learned about ak's.

Gunsnet Sucks!! I just tried to open a PM someone sent me and it said I have to pay $20. This is the first I've heard about this mandatory membership. I don't mind supporting a site (like this one) if I frequent it alot but for a site to just cut you off of almost all privilages without telling you is a BS way to run it.

I know everything started to go down the toilet a while back over there, when the mass exodus occured, but even since I started surfing these forums a few months ago Goonsnet has really took a turn. Site staff and moderators harrassing people all over the place. Erasing posts, lol, let me go grab one and post it here I find it halarious.
This is from the Bulgarian Forum:

I had a post in the Bulgarian & Hungarian forum deleted because I said that the SA M-7 was one of the best AKs available and posted a link to Arsenal Inc's website.

Between Jerkins and Dthor, they are ripping off and fleecing the membership over there like there is no tomorrow.

I can't believe the story behind the group mag purchase that happened a few weeks ago. Dthor organized the scam and made some nice cash from overpricing the magazines when he sold them to the membership.

I have it on good authority there's at least three moderators over there that are absolutely pissed off at the latest stunt he has pulled, and they are ready to resign and tell him to stick up his fat fake seal ass.

At the rate he's running members off, he will never be able to scam enough money to have that piece of shit boat repaired in his driveway. I'm laughing my ass off at the picture I saw of that shitty boat. Special thanks to one of his moderators for that photo!

Last I heard, Thornton lied about his wife having cancer and disappeared from the board. He then magically reappeared as Bowcunt.

We already know that Thornton gives it to HDR, but doesn't have the decency to give him a reach-around.

This is nothing but a pathetic extortion attempt which I'm sure
will go a long ways towards putting this website in the toilet.

Oh, they'll be a few kneepad wearers wanting to join your

Infantry, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
You need to Upgrade your Membership Membership Upgrade Center

Here's my e-mail to them tonight:

Please remove me from your membership roster, ban me or whatever it is that will keep me from continuing to be a member of your site in the future. I think your "changes" to the site are unreasonable and came out of the blue. Your request for Memebership by taking away priveleges amounts to extortion, that I refuse to be a part of. I will not return to this site, and I will tell others not to visit this site due to the "new rules." Instead of increasing your membership, I feel you will reduce it with these strongarm tactics. good ridance and goodbye

They have to have this right now this very minute or else.... and not even a freaking "thank You" after the fact.

No sir entitlement is a one way street my friend. Management and myself made this decision and we will stick by it. Remember we have been doing this for over 8 years guy. I think no I know most folks who are regulars saw the writing on the wall. Nothing is free in the world, yeah there are plenty hobby gun boards but this is the best out there. We have the best servers, the best website security and the best group of members.

They turned the private messages and search features back on for everyone. I'm sure it was to stop people from leaving. Last night the total number of people viewing that site was 290 when I left. I had NEVER seen it go that low in the several months I was there. They had a choice, lose half our membership? Or turn back on some BASIC features for free that are commonplace on message boards.

I think the damage is already done over there. I usually go there, then here. As a fairly new user here, I have found quite a bit more here. I don't think I will be going there much, if at all, anymore. Everything I could do there, I can do better here.
