Just a heads up as if it's now "inappropriate" for the Classifieds it's going to be the same call on the general forum :roll:

I enjoy reading the posts on the YF, there are a lot of good guys there. The moderation on that forum seem to be very stuck up though.

Back when I was a school boy there were authority figures that pushed there weight around just because they were granted power. Right or wrong didn't matter. These people were simply CUNTS. To many rules and rulers on that forum for me.

Yeah I saw that and almost choked.

I sold my Airarcher on a Talon frame there about 10 days ago.

One of the reasons this forum is so great, is like Thenoid says, the YF is run by cunts and this one is not.

And yes Adam I understand it has millions of readers,and thus you feel they have to be strict, but really, a power fucking trip is a power fucking trip, and those mods are on a power trip, pure and simple.

Is is a case of megalomania, and its worshipers run amuk.

An air archer kit falls under airguns as much as a brad nailer does. Archery items are not welcome.

kinda sez it all :roll:
it's his house, more new policy I guess

Power trips also help keep racists rants and political babbling off the forum as well as bitching and moaning about dealers.

Funny thing is people have many airgun forums to post on. But often they want a large audience the yellow forum provides and they get upset if they can not stand on that stage and bitch profusely.

Of course moderation is not perfect and up to some peoples standards so maybe you should ask for a full refund for your FREE membership :D


FX also is making an archery unit. I guess that will not be allowed as well.

WOK:
While I don't agree with excluding Air Archer conversion kits from the Yellow...in the end it's Steve's turf

Steve & I did exchange several emails regarding the situation...his position is that posts selling/discussing "archery" related were never allowed on the Yellow however in the past he had mostly let them slide under the wire.

Thing is now with his expanded Mod Squad he is really tightening up ship there...his comparison was that "An Air Archer falls under Air Guns as much as a Brad Nailer does" end quote

Obviously I don't agree, in fact there is no posted rule and the kits are about as Air Gun related as it gets but it's his house, not my place to do much other than bring it to his attention and relate the outcome where it will do the most good, here on TAG.

Sure, I brought up Johnny Swedens post and the long thread that followed it regarding the new FX device, also brought up the lengthy history of Airrow Stealth discussions on the Yellow
Management maintains these were examples of this that had been allowed to slide there in the past.

mostly I suspect this is the result of Internet Air Gun politics
there is a great body of folks very uncomfortable with highly lethal AGs...
a dressed out Air Archer intimidates the hell out of these people

Lots of folks have posted up anti big bore statements, LD has done it a couple times himself then later admitting to having some himself. Hypocritical? Sure...then again I have lost count of Colt collectors I have known who vocally opposed military pattern semis but quietly held registered 21' AC Thompsons or Monitor BARs
in short they can own it but no one else should

A great example in the firearms world was the late NRA Director, Bruce Stern...very few folks knew of his vaulted Gun Room & many were totally shocked when the collection came up for auction a number of years ago
Here is a small taster:
Image
thing was no one in the NFA community regarded him as friendly to registered machinegun owners
because, well...he really wasn't

anyways I won't butt heads with Steve over this issue
should I decide to unload my Airrow Stealth or my Air Archers I guess it simply won't be on Ol' Yeller :wink:

You have been severely misinformed. Airgunadvice has a shit load of rules and their moderators have chased off almost all of their posters. At one time it was a busy forum and now it is essentially a ghost town and has all been abandoned by its owner Killer B. They banned knifemaker for just disagreeing with them on moderators . Some people were allowed to discuss them there but they decided knifemaker was not one of them. Then when he caught Oykas pimping some knock off scopes over there they got super pissed at him for pointing out they were knock offs.

Here are the rules they have posted there.

The following standards of moderation will be applied to AirgunAdvice:

1. The following will not tolerated AT ALL, an immediate action will be taken:
Obscenity
Pornography
Nudity of any type
Racial Slurs
Threats
Bashing
Personal Attacks/Insults, name calling directed at a Member(s)

2. Posts that are obvious baiting and/or looking for trouble will be deleted, repeat offenders will be BANNED!!!.

3. Posts that may bring unwanted attention or discredit to airgunning will be deleted.

4. All I.P. addresses are logged for the protection of this forum and it's members.

5. At anytime we feel that the integrity of this forum is threatened by any message posted on this forum. The offending message and IP logs of anyone involved will be handed over to the proper authorities!

6. No talk or pictures of the ILLEGAL killing of animals, or miss use of Airguns that would put our sport in a bad light will not be tolerated. Repeat offenders will be banned from this site.

7. No links in signature lines to other Airgun Forums without the consent of ADMIN.

8. Please do not take PMs that you received from other members and re-post them either in whole or in part on the general forum for all to see. PMs are called Private Messages for a reason, so please keep them PRIVATE. If you have a problem with a member contact me, and I will deal with it.

9. Don't complain on the general forum about the way this website is run, or why posts got deleted. Email or PM me (Killer-B) a explanation or read these rules.

10. You may have 1 picture in your Avatar, and if you choose to but a picture in your signature line you may have just one, but it must be on the small side so as not to be confused with a actual post with a picture in it. I will contact you by PM if I feel the size is to big.

11. Users that are exposed for having Multiple different identities on this board will be banned.

12. If we the Moderators or Admin feel that a Thread is becoming repetative, and nothing new being added to the topic we will Lock the Thread.


There have been members in the past that have complained when their post has been deleted on this forum, that their "FREE SPEECH" rights have been violated. Since this is a private forum "FREE SPEECH" does not apply...... our site has Rules, some less restrictive then other forums, and some more restrictive. See rule #9.

Posts that will not be deleted include good arguments among members involving specs, performance, etc. of airguns or associated equipment/supplies. It is good to hear both sides and the input from many, but again no personal attacks, name calling and the like.

Also if a member has NEVER posted a single post on this forum, after a period of 6 months to a year their membership will be deleted from the database, this is in an effort to keep the board alive with active members.

Your cooperation will be most appreciated.

KILLER-B

This was the first forum I joined.

Bottom line is there are no forums that offer the freedom of expression like the TAG.

Don't change a thing.

Is YF vying for a position as top snooty airgun forum? :lol:

Simply because it is an airgun CONVERSION I think it should be allowed on such a forum.

Otherwise a purpose built item for archery isn't technically an airgun for the same reason an airgun isn't a firearm even though you can shoot some of the same ammo.

I guess then by the same reasoning the kit isn't airgun related, but it's for an airgun only...


Hmmm. :?

Syn:

it's not at all about being "Snooty"

you would not believe how many whiny Bitches are out there on line
the real "cunts" are totally behind the scenes, people that rarely post but observe & cunt out via email to moderators & admins

as an Admin/mod I never responded well to email whineathons
I mean seriously, most of the time it was grown ass men acting like they were stuck in K-6th

as I see it, Steve is simply responding to the bitching of a small but very vocal group of sissies that see things like the Air Archer as putting a bad light on what they are into
good comparison is coincidentally in Archery
you have a number of cliques
1...Traditional Flat Bow
2...Recurve
3...Compound
4...Crossbow
5...Pneumatic
I am into all 5 levels however most at best are only accepting of the first three

You see this idiot crap across Weapons related boards
Black Powder
Cow Boy shooting
BPC
even normal firearms

I bet even here on TAG Wok & Tron have regular Board Bitches that whine off board to them

nature of the Internet :wink:

i dont know im never able to find my posts again...but i think they dont like squirrels...bashing of AOA...and some other things i cant remember, the only time i go there is if someone here says theres something of interest

@Riverside...i stand corrected...i must admit i havent been much over there since first kid was bord ...hmm that makes for 22 months...they didnt like me calling a rapid for crapid....met killerbee on the hog hunt that was arranged...nice guy....as a former admin of a counterstrike forum (pc game) after a while all the fun goes out of it....if you just leave it to rot without admins it goes straight to hell very fast, as people start using for other things...i had 10 admins...but they got tired of it too....all of a sudden i got a letter from tele-denmark (Internet/phone etc provider) that i was to immediatly stop my forum...i had no idea....but it had turned into a forum where people shared ip's for ftp warez servers...hehe...whoops ...anyways 22 months is quite some time and honestly i only follow two forums URC and TAG ...

but anyhow, a forum is a chore...many tries to be friendly to all kinds of people....a dead squirrel or WOK on Tron porn, might not be kosher for younger shooters....imho the world is getting wrapped in shipping foam all to quickly and its choking us....when i was a kid and went to the candy store...the shelf with newpapers and mags...had the porn right there at eye height...none of the kids ever did more than look at the front page...but thats wrong now too....a water gun in clear plastic is considered a gun and expulsion reason at schools...WTF..softair yeah suspend the kid...but water pistol ! geeez

anyhow yellow forum = nazi forum ....i dont even remember my login never had...always have to recover it

:?

I was totally kidding about the snooty thing. The YF is a massive forum, a tight grip is needed to keep order. If Tagdagger's most awesome product had nothing to do with the Condor/Talon platform I understand, this just falls on the edge of a category and so it comes down to how far the rules can bend and for how many. No bending of the rules period is the easiest policy to enforce.

Shit just having an email account is a bitch, I can't imagine a forum with the spam and "other" things.



"Board bitches", we's da bitches, foo. :lol: :D :lol: :wink:
