    I was wondering if anyone has any input on what we could add or change on the forum to improve your stay here?

    What would you like to see from us? Feel free to through in any ideas you might have.

    There are some upcoming events I think everyone will like. We have some product give-aways coming and everyone seems to like that.

    What about a on line chat? We could do featured chats that deal with form, BT, mental game, hunting, etc... I would be willing to do one every now and then if enough members are interested.

    couple of ideas

    #1 first and foremost get rid of that trouble maker BOWMAN:biggrin1:
    #2 What if we were to have an on line league like taking your scores from your local shoot and entering them in a section on here, no big prizes just little things as big prizes encourage cheating if you know what I mean. Just an Idea I know it needs some work but it might turn into something. Have different sections for 3-d, indoor spots, outdoor, vegas rounds what ever. Run them for about a month at a time at end of contests a ten dollar gift certifacate to the on-line store, Just an Idea. Only win once every three months. Again just an idea.

    I Agree

    i agree with BOWMAN maybee the prize can be a special emblem added to your name like a bullseye:noidea:

    sell t-shirts with the persons screen name on it.
    this would be a money maker

    Screen name and the bow they shoot and there name on the chest and the stuff the use on there equipment (sights, stabilizer etc.). And if you could make it look like an official shooters shirt and if you get them to us for under 10 bucks that would be cool:noidea: And maybe when we get done we can send one to Mathews and show them what a real shooters shirt looks like, cause if there was one thing that i could really pic apart about Mathews it would be there choices they give for clothes. Sorry kinda got side tracked there, but I do like the idea of the shirts like switchyhnter said.

    I dont know if anyone agree's with me, or if theres a way to turn it off, but I find the Email me when a post I posted in has been posted in thing kind of really annoying, lol. I post a lot, so I got a loooot of emails to clear.

    I agree with madman. I dont post as much as he does but I think when you get those emails and see what people have responded it doesnt really give an incentive to get back on the site to see the responses. If everyone had to get on the sight to see a reply, while they are on they will probably be more likely to reply to other posts while they are on.

    To turn off e-mail subscriptions do the following.

    open "User CP" at the top left of your screen
    then click "Edit Options"
    under messaging and notification you will se a default thread subscription mode box... change to to do not subscribe.

    hey wait a second all I was trying to say was sometimes we as men do not use tact (I think that is the word I was looking for) and that if they were made to feel inferior to us they may decide not to shoot at all and I for one would hate to see that as i am getting ready to, as a matter of fact take my fiance for her first shooting lesson at the indoor range tommarow and wish there were another woman around that shot enough to help her out. Not that I dont want to or think that i can help her but somtimes it would be nice for them to get help from there own kind:biggrin1: I have no doubt in my abilitys to teach her proper form and shooting techniques if only she decides to listen to me....:biggrin1:

    I changed the user registration to default to 'no email notification'. You can always turn it on in your user control panel.
