A question for the citizens of CAS City..
« on: April 19, 2004, 09:42:00 AM »
Howdy pards,

I've noticed a few gun tech questions popping up here.  They tend to get lost in the shuffle.  I've got a couple of thoughts here.

Please select the option you like the best in the poll and amplify here if needed.
Adios,

Howdy Hext, you already know my opinion on the organization of the board, so there's no need for me to tell you that we don't need another forum.

I also don't like the stickies.  When I go to a board, I really like to see the new topics at the top.  As they are already labeled as new from my last visit (I use the "Mark Read" button when leaving town), they are very easy to find if I want to read them.  Stickies sorta add to the confusion (at least for me, I'm easily confused   :o) because the new topics aren't at the top.

I dunno what the others think, but that's my opinion.

Doc

it seems to me that you have enough work to do already, and adding more  might add to much to you and we don't want to see that. your forum is really great the way it is and we all seem to find what we want. at least i do. i can't speak for any others. thats my $.02 worth. which isn't worth a whole lot.

shoot strait and always have fun.

I've noticed the general topics forum doesn't seem to get used much.  Why don't we change the heading to 'CAS Guns/Gear Questions' or something like that.  We do need a forum for new people to CAS to ask questions cause it would eventually accumulate into a library of sorts of most commonly ask questions.  A CAS primer ,if you will, and it would not get lost on page 6 of the Longbranch forum.  One of the best impressions I've had from CAS folks is thier willingness to help the greenhorns get started by answering questions.  I'm defininently for it. ;)

I'll ride along with Will. If question volume increases with a corresponding answer response, perhaps a new forum would be in order -- but not quite yet.  Let's see how it plays out.

I like the format of the Frontier Spot because things don't disappear in a matter of minutes like they do on the Wire.  For instance I have been trying to get an answer to a question I have about the Lyman 55 powder measure.  I came back to look for answers and it was already on the 3rd page.  I posted another message to bring it BTT and a few minutes later it was again on the 3rd page :(

Unless I am doing something wrong the only way you can get notification of a post to a thread you are watching on the Wire is if you start the thread.

After a while we can archive posts so new citizens can be referred to where they might find an answer they are seeking.

Just my opinion, but it's not so humble ;)

A seperate section for gunsmith related questions would be fine with me.

I don't really know, but if we do have one that is not being utilized, maybe it should be renamed and have them go there. 

The SASS Wire is frustrating as posts are lost in minutes as I will said. There was a post once about a guy who did something to the angle of the face of his 51 hammer and stopped cap jams......I've been through over 90 pages trying to find it, and can't....search don't help none there either.
Well..........Bye!

I like to hunt for topics.  It gives me a better view of the whole forum.  I form less habits and tend to look into stuff more; investigate as it were.  I would leave the forum alone and let everyone rummage a bit for the topics.
