1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    I guess this has turned into a free website for berettawiz. Pretty annoying someone takes advantage of a good thing. Get your own website

    His sign on name is new and only posts for sale and he is a business. This forum has no rules against it as far as I know so until it does he is as legal as anyone. Would I buy from them, NO. Because they have no track record and I prefer to buy from regulars on here. He is not selling much of his listings & I bet he does not last long. I saw where oldoneye bought or tried to buy from him, maybe he will chime in the results

    Pretty cheeky if you ask me.

    Take out a display ad if you are making a living with it.

    Moderators take note.

    Why don't all of us send him multipul PM's and overwhelm his inbox? I think he might get the message.

    That's amazing, maybe a first on ts.com, we all agree on something!

    String him up!

    On the serious side, I was wondering if anyone else found it to be an abuse of the site. Good thread folks. I hope someone will correct it because it is a pain in the butt to see that commercial list of ads.

    JMHO,

    Steve

    Then last friday I ordered a set for my other beretta from SPS.

    Besides not wanting to buy from this guy, It is like he's SCREAMING at you by posting in all CAPITALS. Don't need it.

    I responded to his ad selling the angle port bolt closer for $35 plus shipping, I was the first to respond to his ad saying, "i'll take one. I sent him a money order, and never received my closer, when I pm'd him he told me due to overwhelming response, and demand, he sold them all, and he would either refund my money, or send me one when he got more in. I still haven't gotten one, nor have any idea when he is getting more in.

    Guys i listed a ton of stuff on here a couple weeks ago and sold it all pretty quick. Hope no one was offended when i listed my stuff. Some pretty good deals for some gfuys i thought. I am not in business or a dealer but hope i didn't pee anyone off with all my F/S threads.

    As he is not a contributor to the threads of others, I wonder if he even knows he is the subject of this thread and the subject of such negativity for his actions. Even more interesting is that NO ONE has used his posting name yet all know who is being referred to!

    I guess one way to overcome his ads is to go to every thread below his and bring it to the top so his eventually disappear. We are talking about Berettawizz aren't we. Mike.
