Guys, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but a forum dedicated to Walmart isn't going to happen. If we set up a Walmart forum, what is next? A Safeway forum? a Sears forum? If the idea for this forum is whimsical, there is already a forum on Glock Talk where whimsy is welcomed.

I do not want a forum here dedicated to bashing a specific company, or even to praise a specific company. It is not this site's function to provide a fan club or a wailing wall for someone else's company. If you folks want a forum to discuss shopping, then perhaps a more general concept is in order. Maybe a Bargain Shopping forum or a Retail Shopper's forum. Somthing along those lines. You all kick it around and see if you can come to a concensus. Once you have, start a new thread concerning the revised format and see if there is any interest in it. Sorry. Eric

Enter your votes here, for a Retail Shoppers Forum, for a plus, minus, good deal, scary story, slip and fall, or anything to do with the big box, mom and pop and everything in between!

Vote now!

(I'm still waiting for Mr. AntiTactical himself to chime in and help out as this was his idea...
(I'm just resurrecting it)

Yeah, but it gets very little traffic and is oriented toward online vendors...

:)

This is a wal*mart esq, best buy, sportsmans whorehouse, oshmans, etc forum. Any big box, mom and pop, ANY store forum! Rants/raves, complaints, being made while ccw-ing, anything to do with retail!

This was originally DaleGribbles brainchild, so he gets all of the credit and can input ANY creative aspects he would like...

like his original name idea... (I'll leave that up to him though) :)

I would have started this but I was burned out and emotionally devastated when the Wal-Mart forum didn't happen. It's still hard for me to talk about without getting emotional and some days are still darker than others for me, but I'll perservere if I just take it one day ata time.

I know ya'll feel my pain.

Long live the Wal Ma... I mean retail forum.

This is really your forum. I just did the quick leg work since I knew you were a little tired, and a little wired as they say.

I'd like to offer you the leadership role and my offer to help in anyway needed if you'd like. You can also be #1.

Just PM me... ;)

We can definately make mention of it in the description on the front page! I don't think Eric would approve of that as the title though, since this idea was a little too walmartish for him in the first place...

Ultimately, it's DaleGribble's call as much as mine, and I'd like everyone else to have a say so as well. Keep up with the ideas and the VOTES!

I love crazy ideas. Put me on, I'm glad to help.

I would like to take this opportunity to say again that I was CHASED out of Wal-Mart, not KICKED out. Security never caught me.

Ok, here you go - http://glocktalk.com/forumdisplay.php?forumid=159

I do want to make something very clear though so we don't have any problems with this new forum. I spoke to Eric about creating this today, and he DOES NOT want this to turn into a store bashing forum. He was pretty clear about that in previous posts, so I hope everyone will respect that.

milsurp
08-05-2005, 12:55
Not MY intention at all. I won't speak for anyone else though. They're adults, hopefully they'll act like it and conduct themselves as such. On to the festivities...
