I second adding only a "Gear" section. Too many sections makes navigation tough.

Im with scotsman and Garrett here. I too would enjoy the gear swapping section. As wildcard167 mentioned please dont get rid of the 24HR button as I use that everyday...actually the forum is my homepage <img src="/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

And on the basis of suggestions is it possible to make the completion of personal details a necessity. Often enough I found myself in the situation where I read a gripping post and want to learn more about the author just to stumble upon "unfinished" sections.

You know who you are - now get filling! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

OK, now that I think about it and read some of these posts, I'm agreeing with the idea of a gear or equipment topic separate from "survival". After all, this is supposed to be the "equipped" to survive site, so equipment topics do tend to dominate.

I still think keeping "guns" topic separate is a good idea too, because of it's controvertial nature.

No, Reinhardt, I strongly disagree with being required to fill in personal details. Privacy is a delicate commodity these days. I still want to hear from those who choose to protect it by not revealing too much of themselves. Anyways, those who don't want to give personal details are just going to fill something bogus in. I'd rather have it be blank than trying to decide if it's truthful.

One of the attractions of this forum is its diversity. I end up reading on subjects that I otherwise wouldn't bother with.
This is a very good point and makes me reconsider my first reply. Tough decision Doug. Good luck with it. One thing I CAN say FOR SURE is that when it comes to creative forum titles I would nominate Chris! He has a way with words that is hard to match! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Since, I try and read all of the postings, as long as the option to read “all posts in the last seven days” is still available, with titles, I will bow out and leave it to others to make suggestions. Pete

I like the BUY/SELL/TRADE idea with payments going through the foundation which could take a preset percentage before sending the balance to the seller and the seller would then ship directly to the buyer.

It may shock some of you, but I am totally against having a "GUNS" section of any kind on this forum.

Within the context of our discussions of various things, we do bring up guns in a much more civilized manner than many gun forums. What we cover and what is shut down seems to fit well within the parameters of this forum.

Yes!, I know I am vocal as hell in the area of guns, but I come here in the same frame of mind that I take a walk in the woods WITHOUT a boombox blaring behind me. It is a quieter place, and I can always go home and blow my ears out with my stereo or go to an existing gun forum and tell those 9MM fans that they ought to get thier heads examined for passing up a US Cal. .45 auto.

I can't imagine anything worse - a kind of survival bring and buy.
The potential for problems is immense. This forum has enough trouble with the likes of "000anna" and her dodgy russian cosmetics company trying to sell their junk here, without having a trade/buy/sell section.
Opening the doors to a trade forum would invite every conman this side of the Urals to setup business here.
This site (IMHO) should remain information only, with Doug being the only trader allowed.
