    Default Coming soon...new arms classifieds returning from the dead! Need your feedback.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for looking, I'm happy there is a solid forum like this where we can help each other and learn more about different topics. Thank you, NGF!

    I used to own a site called SwapGiant.com about 10yrs ago. It started as a classifieds swap site and quickly became known for a safe place to sell and swap firearms and related items. Unfortunately, family situations forced a shut down of that site. I am now bringing that site back under a new name as www.2ndProtect.com ....this site will be very user friendly, free anonymous ad listings with images, forum, gun safety, relevant 2nd Amendment and political arms issues, event calendar, private and/or group chat, etc. But, I'm VERY open to letting you help create this site so as to make it the best arms listings site available. The new site will also be mobile device compatible and there are talks of an app to work hand in hand with the listings.

    So, this is your chance to speak up! You can truly navigate the creation of categories, cities, topics of discussion, logistics of the sale, better site names, any safety issues you may have had with other sites that concern you, and anything else you can think of that would separate 2ndProtect from anything else. Things you like or don't like about other sites are welcome. I'm not trying to "take-out" other similar sites, but merely enhance our options and offer another alternative.

    This is a very unique concept where the users will help create and drive the site and the interactive experience. Therefore, your insight is truly valuable and sincerely appreciated.


    I look forward to your feedback…let's do this!

    -Joe

    The old site has multiple redirects and Malwarebytes objects to a malicious file there.

    The new site has absolutely NO code and is not secure (yet):
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    You DO need help in designing this site.

    I'm not comfortable with web design by committee or crowd sourcing.

    I'm open to an explanation, though.

    SwapGiant is toxic and my privacy software blocks the GoDaddy 2ndProtect parking page.

    I'd say you have some problems to be rectified, Joe.

    Yes, Swapgiant hasn't been in use for 10yrs, so not surprised that there may be issues...I gave it up after a successful start way back when, but had personal issues force closure or a half-ass attempt to keep it up...chose all or nothing, so nothing it was. 2ndProtect isn't up yet, was hoping for feedback to make something a little more unique and user driven. I removed the hotline from this post, was never meant to link at this time.
