Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Donation Drive

I picked up the slack on the renewal. Next year our hosting will be done for, so if you want to donate, please feel free to do so. Having said that, we're in the green zone right now. Thank you all.

New Chat Room

Guys, I think we all know that the IRC chat is basically dead. There are a few regulars, mostly idle, and nothing else. So I rolled up a new Discord server, lots more advanced options than the old IRC server, easily accessible from a browser or from the Discord app (iOS and Android), or from the Dis...

Donation Drive

Hey guys! Just in case you didn't know, we're hosting a donation drive to keep the forum going. Since it was brought back from the dead, it has seen some use. If you want to continue to support the forum, just hit that Donate button up top and drop some coin our way. You can also send a check, but i...

Re: Why surplusrifleforum does not show on searches

We have about a year before hosting fees are due, last time they totaled around $600 for a three hosting agreement, I imagine it will be about the same. The SSL cert, for a year, is about $100 on top of that.

Re: Why surplusrifleforum does not show on searches

Oh, I bet I know what the actual issue is. Once we lost the HTTPS cert, I bet Google started delisting us. As of right now our coffers are empty and I am not making any money off keeping the forums running. I'd love to continue to invest money into it, but there's a point where no returns on investm...

Re: Why surplusrifleforum does not show on searches

There really is no answer to it. We don't block any crawlers or bots from indexing the forum. But I do not allow it to see certain subforums. Let me check and see if I can bump the results a little.

Re: Firearm stolen, Dublin Ohio

I don't care about the money. I don't even care about the loss. I care about the fact that someone might use what used to be my duty weapon, to harm someone else. He will likely trade it for drugs. That person will sell it to someone else. That person will use it to rob or harm someone. And it's on ...

It's my vehicle. Usually the bag is removed. I was lazy. Usually the truck is locked. I was negligent.

Re: Connection not private?

Your browser is just telling you. It has nothing to do with the forum software. Just without a cert, your browser is warning you that your connection might not be secure because it can't tell that it's being encrypted end to end.

There's nothing wrong. The SSL cert lapsed because I have no money to pay for it.

Re: Banned again .....on my Chromebook!

First off, I didn't get a single email from you rob, sorry you're upset, but nothing came to me or the admin email. Second off, I set the threshold in the stop forum spam check to 5 (it was set to 3 instances of your email address or IP address showing up) -- I turned off the username checking becau...

Re: Downtime

Until I get a chance to thoroughly work on this, I'm opening the board.

You will get random errors and have issues. It's either that or I disable it completely while I try to squash these damn bugs. I opted for the former, for now.
