Thoughts On Improving This Site For 2020.

Recommended Posts

I've long since railed against pointless dribble. Not because I dont enjoy it, but because I believe many members have similar browsing habits as mine. You open the site and then click the button at the top right "unread content". This way I can quickly skim the content that's been posted since I last visited. Also like many members, just about every section of this forum interest me, so I'm not one to enter the sub-forums one by one. I'm not saying everyone does it this way, but it's how I know many do.

I say all this because there was a member who used to post about 8 political topics a day. Some interesting, others bigoted. I'm not against political posts and I'm not against 80's kung fu. But I do get annoyed when I miss good HUNTING related content because it gets lost in the shuffle. A few forums that I visit keep popular off-topic discussions to single threads. Organically we've done that here already. For example, Beer, Football, live from the woods, what's for dinner. All long running threads contained within themselves. Not interested in bad New England Patriot or Red Sox takes? You can easily avoid it. Want some advice on a new porter? Come on in.

So if the idea is still confusing to you, I vote in 2020 some of our more prominent off-topic thread starters make a place they call home. And go nuts in there... but stay in there.

How would you even  know If they are using there real name ?

I belong to another site that has levels free and paid 

Only the  Vendors pay that are really serious about selling stuff  and 99% of the traffic goes to the free part most here are just recreational hunters what you want sounds  like forum for professionals in the hunting business.

You have to submit driver's license and social security # during verification process. Then we would know exactly who are you. The forum would be shocked. But i wouldn't be since i already tracked your IP address to other forums and put 2 and 2 together.

Dont do alot of social media including facebook, i need to get my kicks over here with the trolls..lol

Light Humour-- no problem at all. Throw up the Emojis.  But when one member mentions the perceived lower IQ of another member- that's stepping over the line.

I noticed you  seem to be scared of a certain member on here .  That you didn't even answer my post  about which you like better typical or non typical  whitetail deer.

Obviously you are intimidated by him  because  I know that  racks is what you are into .

Well I would guess most that come on would want info from those that maybe have some real info or knowledge? I mean if you are into getting your hunting questions answered by a guy that say... Targets button bucks or baby bucks as the quarry then so be it. But I will cost you to listen to crap that cost him to put out.

Google search will give you all the answers you can possibly want for free  really  .

I think it's the interaction that people like  with other people that have the same interests that makes them come to a forum. 

Not necessarily information  but some maybe but enough to pay when it is available for free  on other places not likely. 

You would just get vendors that  pay it ,  And not the hunting public .

No we would have the real sportsmen on here with the real life questions that actually know what they are talking about and not reading a bunch of dribble about liking Typical or Non Typical antlers or eating the nuts of a Whitetail buck. And if they did want to post stupid shit like that at least it would cost them to do so.
