Default How do we get new members on the forum?

I was thinking about some of the local gun shops that advertise on this forum give out cards to customers who buy firearms as a way to grow the membership here?

Any idea of that has been tried?

How about just getting back to a point where more than 50% of the threads are actually about shooting and guns?

For the past 4-5 years 75% of the threads are about the sale of or politics of guns.

You don't ask for much.

1- about tamales

Between this, and numerous other recent posts/threads on this, it's pretty clear that people want to talk about other things as well. It just so happens that reflects the world outside this forum. We might all love firearms and love talking about them, but there are still other things in life to talk about as well. The fact that people keep wanting to talk about them isn't going away.

You can have a forum intended for the free discussion of all things shooting, but there's no reason you can't discuss other things as well. Except of course for arbitrary definitions being adhered to despite the clear evidence to the contrary.

I don't mean to be out of order, I'm just sayin'...

Not trying to stir the post too much, but when your "Main Room" which consists of general discussion sits above everything that is supposed to be about "The Armory", it just begs people to visit there first. That said, I think Classifieds should be on top as I spend most of my time and money there.

I myself do not have enough gun knowledge yet to help others more than offering my limited opinion I feel like a retard at times because the veterans here know so much. Reminds me of my grandpa. Give me another 30 years!

I dont want to stir the pot at all, but the lay out of the sections always throws me off. I would do a "defrag" of the sections and reorganize them. Have sections at the top like Nevada Guns, then National Guns, Desert Survival, General Talk, Sales, etc. Start from the most important at the top then on down.

Good luck. Many of the very knowledgeable members have left due to nonsense. To many hurt feelings and PC stuff. I don't come here nearly as much as I used to because of this.
