sounds like that was a good plan why was it not used with the new upgrade
I Imagine it would give admin and mods fits if someone gave a negative rating and they didn’t think they deserved it. There is a lot to moderating a marketplace that we don’t see.

Fraud and deception is when someone sells something that is not what they offered. Not bumping threads. That would be failure to follow site posting rules. There is a difference, do you not agree?
No. I do not agree.
One is no better than the other.

First off... that happened. More than you would think. However that feature was being used less and less since the last update.

Second, the loss of that feature was not the decision of this team. The software developers said that feature had to go because of site security issues. So, not our call. From what I was told, this is the only feature lost in the upgrade. I haven't taken time to review everything, but the main changes that appear are some new wallpaper and relocation where certain things are. You all should be ecstatic with the improved search.

that is understandable they should have a chance to explain what went wrong but I guess the way I look at it is some people don't get their way they give a bad rating but the next person has a good experience it goes up look at product reviews people complaining about a $19.99 rod and reel that they feel should preform like a $200 + rod and reel there is always two sides to a story more if it's a good story

I'm sure that some of the people complaining now, complained the last time the format changed, and the time before that! Some people just don't like change. I'm not the most computer literate person here, I've have never attended a single computer "class". Yet, there hasn't been a site format change that I haven't been able to navigate. It's not really that hard.

That said, I'm on a desktop computer, not a "mobile device" and I have been given to understand that those have some different issues. Quite frankly, I don't really care to be that much "in touch"! I have my time to get on, in the evenings or late afternoons, and that's good enough for me.

I will say that on my laptop (Surface) tonight, it is much easier to use the site because there is more usable screen. Between the fixed header and the fixed ad at the bottom on the mobile version, it's harder for me to use the phone.

I’ve been a mod on a gun site. I know all too well what problems marketplace and ratings can cause. But like I said, moderating is a volunteer position. It’s a balance of what the membership wants and needs and what the mods want and need. It usually tips in favor of the membership as it should since, without them, there would be no site.

All I know is. I had this site saved in my favorites and now when I click on it I get this OGF page that says:
Oops! We ran into some problems.

The requested page could not be found.

I then have to click on the OGF logo at the top of the page and it goes to the new format. Also had to re- log in..

Really? You know its messed up when a mod thinks their users being defrauded of goods and money is the same as bumping a post one too many times.

The best upgrade this site could get is a few mods IMHO.

One thing for sure, even given the new changes, this site is 100% better than some of the other sites that I once belonged to. Guys talk fishing and outdoors here. Very little drama and no toxic politics. I do hope it stays this way.
Just wait LOL

I agree. If the head bangers return, I'll just slip back into the shadows again. LOL In my many decades on this rock I've seen many changes, some good, some bad, some really stupid, but I never thought we would be where we are at right now. Never. I hope there is a return to common sense and normalcy. The outdoors gives some of us a route to this. (This is why old guys like me don't like change. lol).
