I'm up for it, but someone might get their feelings hurt.

Maybe it will help some understand if people generally agree or disagree with their views on debatable topics. 

On a side note, I was looking at your sweet ass glock you posted a pic of and I was thinking "I wish there was a like button" and then I found this thread.

If there was a thanks button I would use it. I primarily interface with the forum via Tapatalk and I am not seeing the like functionality there either.

I can't add the button to tapatalk without modifying their code. I did add it to the original theme though. That one slipped through.

Thanks for all the input guys.

... Also, what do you guys think about a "dislike" button?

We used to have something similar this before, however certain users would get into "dislike" wars, in that they would intentionally down rate each others posts regardless of what was posted, this became an issue.  That is why it was discontinued.

I understand what you are saying. we moderate fairly, I believe.  Some do bully, but mostly debate.  If things turn into sh*t slinging matches, with no valid arguments being presented, we generally lock up the topic.  If people feel strongly about a subject and can argue their point, we can respect opinions. (we even had anti-gun folks here, their views were seen and as long as the debate was sane and valid points argued, everyone is allowed to voice)  However, if the points make no sense, trolling persists with no valid argument, and personal attacks ensue, well there is no point in that.

I think you are holding your own.  You got valid points, and you are not afraid to voice your opinion.

You misunderstand.  When I see someone say what "the people" (to paraphrase your term) want, expect, need, etc, I have to wonder how the person saying this knows what all the people feel.

I believe you should be honest enough to express your opinions as your own and not try to increase their weight by saying a bunch of people you can't name hold the same opinions.

Just trying to keep the discussion honest and the overly dramatic generalities to a minimum ...    If you had used "I" in place of "peeps", I would have never commented.

How about some "page forward/page back arrow" buttons placed couple spaces away from the last page number. Or space the page numbers farther apart.

How about cleaning up the vendors' threads?  Many haven't posted in years (some are out of business), why take up space?
