  1. A note to all Forum Users: The goal of the SASS Wire Forums is to provide a fun and resourceful place that users can come and discuss topics in regards to SASS and Cowboy Action Shooting. We also want to celebrate free exchange of information and conversation, and realize that "spirited" discussion can happen at times when the subject matter is one that we feel passionately about. It can be a challenge to express ideas and opinions in the written word and nearly impossible to judge intent of the manner of which it is intended. Please keep that in mind when posting on the forums- be considerate of the challenges we all face when trying to communicate on the SASS Wire. We are not looking to curtail expression- everyone has their opinions and are entitled to them. We want to make sure that everyone is able to participate fully and express themselves without fear of ridicule. There IS a difference between a debate and an argument. Arguments are disrespectful and will not be tolerated. Treating each other with respect is paramount. Please be considerate of the challenges that we all face when trying to communicate on the SASS Wire. Please refer to the following excerpt from the Guidelines: Inappropriate or offensive content and disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. To assist in defining inappropriate content, ask yourself the following questions when making a post: - Is this message SASS-related? (with the exception of the Saloon forum) - Is this message something most members would like to read? - Does this message add value to the forum? - Is this something I would say to a person face-to-face? *If you cannot answer yes to all of these questions, please reconsider posting your message. IGNORE FEATURE TIP: If you find there is a forum user that you no longer wish to see posts from,-regardless of the reason, there is a feature built in to the SASS Wire Forums that allows you to "IGNORE" a User. There are a few ways this can be accomplished. You can either hover over the member's icon that you wish to ignore and a "Ignore" option will come up- taking you to your Ignored Users page within YOUR account. This is where you can manage the content you see within the Forums. You can also arrive at your Ignored Users page within your account by clicking on the down arrow next to your name/account info in the top right corner and select "Ignored Users". This is similar to "unfollowing" someone in Facebook. Thank you, Misty Moonshine & the SASS Wire Moderating Team
  2. Hey guys, we all know discussions and opinions can get heated. So, please back off just moment, take a breath, stay on topic, and not each other.
  3. Tony, I combined all the posts into one, so everybody can come to one place for info. You had the honor of making the very first post on the subject. SASS HQ has been in touch with the tech guys that run the servers. They are working on it.
  4. Just to give you an update from my end so far... I do not know if the SASS Office is open today, President's Day. I left a message on their answering machine and sent an e-mail to Misty. If I receive any word, I will post an update here, as promised. I have merged all the "Slow" threads together as requested, so there would be one place to go for information. In the meantime, enjoy the nostalgia of the days of the dial-up modem. All that is missing is the hiss, whine, and grind of the modem trying to connect up!
  5. On a lighter note, it's Sunday, family get-together-day. So, I get to see my son and his wife, and my grand-kids. So, slow Wire or no, it's a good day!
  6. At the request of several of you who have posted here, I merged all the SLOW threads... and then you complain because they are merged? Really?? The Moderators do not have magic wands. We can not make the Wire go faster. Personally, I will wait until the SASS Office is open for business again during the week, and I will call them, during office hours. If they can give me an update, I will let you know. Have any of you SASS members who seem to have plenty of time to complain done the polite thing and called? If you have, why haven't YOU posted here?
  7. You had the picture inserted in your signature line. All that was needed was to delete it from your signature and you're good to go. Purty gun! Eli
  8. Received an e-mail reply and edited his thread for him, for clarity. Yeah, I know... I'm a party-pooper
  9. A note to all Forum Users: "...There IS a difference between a debate and an argument. Arguments are disrespectful and will not be tolerated. Treating each other with respect is paramount." Please keep your discourse civil and refrain from personal attacks.
  10. "Offers on the Classifieds may only be posted by a SASS Member (you may not post for someone else), in good standing, and must include his/her SASS Number." We've been letting folks post for those who are disabled or not computer literate. In those cases, you may not sell guns that are not yours, but you may refer prospective buyers to the seller. The seller must be a SASS member and you must post their SASS name and number. Posts that do not meet these parameters will be deleted.
  11. All the SASS Handbooks and Course Materials, with several translations Rule Clarification Archives
  12. SASS Event Wire Guidelines . Use the following format: For example, July 1-4, 2018 should be written as 0701-0704 2018. That keeps the matches in order of occurrence. . Match announcements that aren't in the correct format will be deleted. . List your match location. . Follow your Topics, that way, if someone has a question, you will see it.
  13. Seamus,

    I went back and looked at old posts to see if any of yours got dropped.  The only one I could find was in the Town Drunk thread?  Was that it?



  14. Thanks, PW for this informational post of a rule change/clarification. It seems to have been discussed, rehashed and bashed. So, I'm going to lock it and pin it. Thanks, Eli
