When I first came to this board I was attracted to it because it was unlike any other. It had a large member base and lots of activity. It was diverse. Posts covered everything from how to install a A2 buttstock to what Lordtrader had for lunch that day. It was informal and personable. Members actually got to "know" each other to the extent it is possible on the internet. It was full of MOSTLY educated, intelligent people who could answer just about anything. We hung out, had fun, gave each other a hard time and on occassion played a bit of "one upsmanship." IE. Who had the cool toys, most interesting day, etc. But as of late there seems to be a resentment to that informality among some members. They "seem" to want another topic specific forum with no more vanity posts. So how do you see AR15 General Discussion Forum? What do you think it should be? And even I don't advocate #5. Would be kinda scary with this crowd.

The General Discussion is (should be) exactly that. Discussing things in general and/or things that dont fit into any other forum. Is this a rhetorical question?

being fairly new here, but an old tymer on BBs, the general topic is & shud be about any damn thyng someone wants to get off their chest/mind !! "vanity" posts....!! if this to mean in the same vein as "vain" then..., why not ?? i happen to thynk some are very funny & some just point out what utter fools that person may be...... i also happen to notice there are a lot of gun related topics here..., why ????? there is a specific forum for gun related topics, no one seems to be concerned about keeping gun stuff where it belongs. "vanity"....! or BS has its place & shud be allowed on the General Forum only...... just my 2 cents.............

I would set up AR15.com with the following forums: -- Clinical AR15 Forum (ONLY AR15 Related Topics) -- Firearm Forum (ONLY Firearm Topics) -- General Firearm Forum (Topics Must Be Firearm Related) -- General Topic Forum (subject to Forum Code, Nothing Is Off Topic) -- Free For All (No Rules, No Mods) Each member would be allowed not to read and post on the forums he wished to avoid.

Not True. I noticed mods complaining about "pointless topics" and "wastes of bandwidth." Just trying to get a read on how it SHOULD be.

I don't get bothered by most of the locked posts. Only by double standards, IE me being hung out to dry when 90% of the forum is doing the same thing.

I take plenty of lumps. But the fact remains, certain people complain that I'm posting topics that "waste bandwidth" and "don't belong in GD." I'm just trying to establish WHY? And IF there is a move to a different standard I want to know. If NOT then I can reasonably tell these people to GET BENT. I don't wanna tell anyone to GET BENT unless it is warranted.

This is a pretty cool site. Lots of variety and traffic. That's why I visit. I'm not sure if a "no-holds barred" forum with no mods or rules would be a good thing. I've been to a couple like that and it's kind of pointless. Having rules makes it fun when you know there is a "line" you can step over, if you dare to.

Have to disagree with you. I do believe Steyr has been singled out by mods and staff. He gets chastized for wasting bandwith when half of the topics in GD are a complete waste of bandwith. I love this place but sometimes people take this stuff way too seriously.

I'm not sure if it is just about unfairly dealing with SteyrAug; it seems that all non-paying members are held to higher scrutiny when it comes to 'wasting bandwidth,' or having a thread locked. There is most certainly a clear double standard between 'payers' and 'non-payers.' (DUH) Of course, this sort of caste system is to be expected, and I could really give half a shit if one or two of my posts gets locked by some overzealous bitch or bastard. It really isn't crucial to me, and it shouldn't ruin your day, SteyrAug. Such uneven application of the rules is an incentive to pay-up, for some, but may have just the opposite effect on others. ^My no-BS .02, no need to start a clamjamfry over it.

After several emails sent in an effort to find out what antis problem is he finally confided he thinks "I'm an asshole." He said he always HAS disliked me. When I asked what I did specifically to piss him off, he would not elaborate. So lesson learned is... When you contact antiUSSA by email to work things out he will call you an asshole. When he claims to have "worked things out" as he has stated in the past, he is lying. He still thinks you are an asshole. RESULT: I consider antiUSSA an asshole and will treat him accordingly. No Respect. He can either avoid ME as I have avoided him lately OR he can continue to pursue this matter.

i don't know why you have a personal grudge against SA and frankly don't care. But in all fairness you have egged him on more than anyone. DO you sit back when someone jumps on you? Neither does he. Both of you guys need to step back and realize there is NOTHING on this board worth getting an ulcer over. We are all on the same side here. Get over it and let the man be.

well, then i guess i want to ask: are you advocating ADDING these forums or doing away with all the others and having only these 4 (fifth is not an option, see below). because adding them would be redundant. we already have dedicated AR15 access. it's just broken down into nearly every aspect you can think of for your AR15 for more user-friendly format. scope question? put it in the optics forum. competition question? put it in the competition forum. yeah, other types of firearms are inserted into the discussion, but the majority are related to the AR15. why would we need what you suggested? second, if you're suggesting doing away with the others and keeping only those 4, you're severely limiting the service that people receive.
that being said, there's a certain level of anonymity with internet boards ... and it allows some people to behave in ways that any other normal societal situation would not tolerate. why should we let these assholes get away with it?

Question... Do you make it a habit to attack every thread that is a waste of bandwidth(in your opinion) or is this just a personal vendetta against a particular person?

well, then i guess i want to ask: are you advocating ADDING these forums or doing away with all the others and having only these 4 (fifth is not an option, see below).... if you're suggesting doing away with the others and keeping only those 4, you're severely limiting the service that people receive.

I'm not suggesting doing away with any of the existing forums. As for breaking apart Strictly-Firearms and Firearms-Related, I personally don't care. SteyrAUG brought it up, I thought it was a good enough idea to be discussed, maybe someone wants to poll the members to gauge general opinion, maybe the staff feels one way or the other about it, and I personally am happy to let the idea die.
are you illiterate? did you not comprehend the part i mentioned about [b]legal issues[/b]?

I believe that I correctly read and compehended your point.
when you create a no-rule situation, you just invite losers and assholes. this is my home too. i don't want that. i'm sure many others feel the same way. i don't wany ar15.com to go bye-bye because someone got their jollies by causing problems.

Please allow me to amend my original suggestion with a clarification. The Anything-Goes forum would be an Anything-Legal-Goes forum. It would be moderated, and it would have 1 rule: No illegal posts. I believe that this qualification would satisy all the objections you have raised.

Here's a little exercise some of you might try when you sign on to these forums. Repeat it out loud if you need to. [b][blue]I will begin my day with the statement "Today I shall judge nothing that occurs." and throughout the day I will remind myself not to judge.[/b][/blue] You might just be surprised how well this works.

So YOU attack ME and I'm supposed to just shut up about it? DON'T THINK SO. Again, YOU created this situation with a unprovoked, personal attack. Then you have the audacity to complain when I don't sit back and take it. If you had not started this, it wouldn't exist. I certainly didn't hunt down one of your posts to flip you some shit. You don't like me and I don't like you. So in the future stop reading my posts. I sure as hell don't bother with yours unless they are about me. Don't comment on my posts. I sure as hell don't comment on yours unless they are about me or the topic in hand. I don't stop by your LEGP posts to tell you what a dickhead I think you are. And if you sent me an email trying to resolve the situation, as I've done a few times, I wouldn't just dismiss them by calling you an asshole. So again GET BENT.
