Forum Expansion

Recommended Posts

I brought this up to the moderators or the powers that be .... whomever runs this forum some time ago.

How do you people feel about expanding this forum to include a Tech Section.

Their are frequent questions on the Wire and Saloon about Technical Issues with various firearms and such,

Do you people feel there is enough tech questions to warrant a separate Tech Section?

I don’t know about a tech section but it would sure help if their “Search” function actually did what a search function is supposed to. 
 

I tried searching for a thread I saw a few months back the other day and I got everything but that. The function only searches for one word, no matter how you format the search. It’s pretty lousy.

But that is what you get when you buy your forum package from a service then pay for the cheapest package. 
 

Don’t hold your breath on the “Tech Section”. 
 

I will say this. It has been a very long time since we have seen outages that last more than a little while.

I do not know of a forum with a good search function, so I use google with the site directive.

 

So for instance:

 

friday humor site:forums.sassnet.com

 

Google also has ways to search date ranges and more, read here:

Or if you want to do it by filling in a form, use this:

 

https://www.google.com/advanced_search

Now if there was only a way to find this post sometime in the future when I need it.

The WTC section of a few years back never made saw completion. It was also argued (by some) that would be a good addition.

Wonder if your idea would have more credence if you were a SASS member?

Not holding my breath at all,  just spent too many years on car forums with specified 'Tech' sections.

No, it would not.

If the concept was considered a good idea, the vast majority of responses would not be 'No'.

 

As far as my membership status goes, I have had the application filled out half a dozen times in the last 20+ years and never filed it.

Time is not, nor has it ever been my friend.
