Thanks very much for Glock Talk. But the new GT is way too wide for my screen. All other forums fit perfectly.

Thanks again.

This was my question too...I miss that function!
This is ok, right? I'm not breaking any rules or making anyone mad at me for this comment, Right?

Not a suggestion so much as a question.
How much for this space?
Is there a monthly rate?
Does it have to be a business or can one just post an image?
PM or answer here, if you like.

Anyway, I like the new layout. I liked the tabs, too, but I guess they didn't make the cut.

Eric it is looking great. With everyone, I love the rotating GlockTalk banner.


I am really hating the banner on the side of the forum and the ones in the middle of posts. I can deal with the ones in the posts, but the one on the right side has got to go. It makes viewing the forum difficult.

I shoulda kept my big trap shut. Now he's taken away the new posts as well as the my thread/replies. Oh well, change is grand. Do what you gotta do Eric. This is your world, make it comfortable for you, I would in your shoes. Thanks for the site BTW.

Hello Eric,
The way the forum is laid out now is good. I don't like the interuptions in the postings with the advertisments between postings though. Would be nice if we had the ability to lock our own ads once a sale/trade has been accommplished though.

Thanks for all your hard work.

I like what you just did..I guess about an hour ago. You put the dark grey border OVER the Glocktalk banner, as if to encapsulate it.

Eric, nice job on the upgrade.

I have a question, however. Is it possible to NOT have GT's advertisements appear in the middle of threads. It's a little annoying to scroll down the posts and get an ad appearing as a post. If you have already addressed this topic, then never mind...

Where did the state forums go?
Can't seem to find them.

Are there any suggested settings for speeding it up? The old forum loaded almost instantly for my old pc, now it is annoyingly slow, especially with the new, more complex layout.

Is anyone else missing the MyThreads/MyReplies link....

I really liked that feature. Will it be put back?

I don't know about the rest, but I also liked the new layout you had up for a few days... the tabs across the top made things easier to get to quickly..... Thanks,... I hope that comes back as well.

Like the look. Took a min to understand how it was applied, but was easy to figure out. Also like how you can switch between version 2 and 3. I personally like Beta 2 overall. My perfect setup would be Beta 3's top right side of info and ad's along top, with beta 2's left top side.

The site really looks great. I am excited about most of the new features.

One thing I would enjoy seeing is mobile device friendly version. I don't know what all that would require but it would be handy. My smartphone has a display of 240x320 and I generally use landscape mode. Internet explorer on it actually renders the current pages well, but some areas if designed for it would be better. It requires a lot of scrolling and also our mobile internet isn't real fast. A stripped down version that would load faster would be most beneficial. The new ads hog a lot of my screen on my mobile device. I understand you have to generate monies from advertisers to keep things going too. I don't mind them at all on my desktop unit. Maybe we could take off ads (or at least some of them) on mobile layout for paid members of a cerain level?

I really do apperciate all you do for the site.
