My name is Philip, I work for VerticalScope.com. VerticalScope recently acquired nationalgunforum.com and will be taking over the management duties of the forum. Your familiar moderator and admin team will be the same people helping with the day to day forum management. We will primarily manage the technical functions of the site and support the mod team. Maintaining continuity as well as the spirit of the site is important to us. This means that little about the site will change for you the user while we continue to grow the community.

Over the next few days you will notice my team mates Helena and Kyle who will be helping me with the site announcements as well as members of our support team (they will introduce themselves in the site issues section). While we get to know the landscape of the forum and how things work we will be on hand to answer questions and get to know the unique needs of this community.

I will be working closely with the Admin/Mod team on ways we can help improve the order of things here and raise the level of your experience on nationalgunforum.com.

If you have questions please let me know, I will do my best to answer you all as quickly and thoroughly as I can.

-Philip

What is "Vertical Scope" and what are the plans for NGF? You stated "little" will change so I am guessing you already know of "some" changes in the plans; care to share?

Verticalscope.com is the company that purchased the forum. I am open to suggestions you might have for the site and to make your experience here better. You will notice some new admin accounts helping behind the scenes mostly.

As long as you support the first as well second amendment. There have been some rollicking good exchanges here because the Mods have been generous enough to let us talk.

If you want improve something... I've never been able to get the games section to work for me.

Hi I'm Kyle I work with Phil. What happens when you try to use the games section? Does it throw out errors?

Select game room and I get "plugin not supported"

Select arcade and I see normal screen, but get same message when selecting a particular game.

I'm accessing with a Kindle Fire using Fire OS 5.1.2 updated 4-26-2016

Does it have flash or Java options? It'd be under your browser's settings.

That could cause that message

No indication of flash or java actions. Under Security, I have disallowed apps from unknown sources. Don't know if that would kill something running in browser window

Well there's your problem. The tablet doesn't have flash. If you have a version of google Chrome that will run on the tablet it would probably work since Chrome has a built in flash player. a Kindle isn't a 'real' computer. it's designed to read books with and do basic internet browsing. Not play internet games with.

We are looking into something like this for some of our other sites. post up in the site issues about this, and we can keep you updated if we find something that works.

Unmonitored private chat rooms on other open membership sites have led to problems.

Someone (or several someones) have abused them with spam, illegal activities, harassment, etc.

They prove difficult to monitor.

VS has bought other forums I've been on. No problems as a result.

Keep up the good work, VS.

Welcome to the forum to all of the new Admins. If I could make one suggestion/request, please acknowledge what a great job our current Mods and Admins have been doing. They have kept the forum running great and monitoring things. Generally speaking, everyone is happy and we all get along well. My Dad used to tell me, "If it ain't broken don't fix it".

I'll take a 2XL. You guys don't have promotional blue jeans, do you? Oh, and a box of 30.06...

Seriously, I have to agree the MODs here are pretty level-headed. I mod on another forums,

and you'll be happy to know I rate them highly.
