DallanC, where would you like varmint hunters to post? I see two possibilities, General Hunting or Small Game.

Ditto JohnnyG's question. I could work inside the Small Game but, would like to have a handgun hunting forum. Wink

Well its like this. Call me crazy but its absolutely true: Too many forums initially kill a site.

If you have few forums (initially) when people visit there is usually always something new to read or reply too... and that in and of itself makes things appear busier, thereby attracting more posters as they see more traffic etc etc.

I want to end up with alot of forums, and I think we'll get there but I want to try holding off on making too many initially until we get enough traffic to justify creating new ones. That said if we are absolutely missing something critical (ie: BunnyWabbit hunting) I'll create it in a flash.

Posts like this are great as I want to hear what you guys want, I always welcome suggestions because well... I forget stuff too Twisted Evil

For now handguns can fall under the general firearms section... if we start getting more handgun talk than firearm talk there we spin off a Handgun forum and move over the related posts :). As for varmints... I dont have a problem with it being in either small game or general... although I'm strongly thinking about merging "General Hunting" and "General" and just calling it "Coffe Shop". So if that were true now, Varmint talk would be better suited to Small Game.

I dont concider the site ready for a "Grand Re-Opening" quite yet so things are sortof in a flux as I complete installing of software (for example: a cool new recipe program is now installed, just configuring it & adding in wildgame catagories and icons atm) and will enable it for everyone to dig into very soon... like tomorrow or sunday).

I have about 20 minor to major "TODO's" left before I'll be satisfied and can take a breather. So bottom line, Suggest away if you see something or have a question... ignore the dust and smoke and hopefully in a couple weeks things will be mostly completed.

PS: did I mention an online version of PointBlank? Wink

I want to kick in a suggestion for a 'Varmint Hunting' section. It was one of the top sections on the old board with tons of posts. It was the same for the Big Game, Deer Hunting, Turkey Hunting, Black Powder, Reloading, Gunsmithing, Handgun's and others. I don't think I am alone in suggesting that these are the bread and butter sections to post in. One way to find out for sure. Idea Throw them up and see where it goes Very Happy
As for my hunting buddy 'Elmer Fudd' I like the 'Bunny Wabbit' section but I have to say that Small Game covers that. Big Game got alot of posts but it wouldn't hurt to have the deer sections along with other big guys like Bears, Elk, Caribu, and Moose with their own sections because of their followings.
It ain't worth much but that's my 2 cents worth Wink
I understand the work loading the software and tweaking it. It's a ton of work and there will be a time when you get around to the sections we like the most.

I do think Dallan has a good approach to this. Plus he's all we've got and is doing the work in his spare time. Thanks, Dallan. I did think that having all the seperate topics on the old setup killed some of the interaction that makes a group discussion interesting.
