Throwing a suggestion out there to open NJGF accounts on instagram and other social media accounts, thereby spreading the awareness of our 2nd Amendment restrictions here in NJ, ginning up support for pro 2a legislators, and drawing more likeminded people to njgf. Please pardon my ignorance as to platforms that NJGF is already on as I'm in between feedings of my newborn and trying to get as much ideas out as possible.
Good morning ladies and gents.
Really excited to announce the roll out of our latest project, one that has been in the making for quite some time however finally allowed with the new forum updates that we have done.
NJGF's database of gun stores and ranges.
I really wanted to create the Yelp or TripAdvisor for gun stores in NJ so here it is. =)
It is still a work in progress however featured enough to warrant a general roll out. Please watch the video and help contribute to the database.
If you tried getting on the forum in the past 24 hours you likely noticed that it was down for maintenance. There was a critical security update that needed to be performed which forced downtown, so took the opportunity to complete part of the planned upgrades and most importantly, the move to a new server.
The forum has been updated to the newest version of the software, which brings some bug fixes, compatibility fixes, as well as general updates and upgrades. By having the software updated, it lays the foundation to the up and coming awesome features that we are working on adding over the next few weeks. (hey, I don't want to let the cat completely out of the bag).
More importantly.... we are on our new server! After testing and playing with it over the past 2 months, made the move to it. With the massive forum growth, 5,000 members and counting, the generally crappy political environment, many new shooters, the forum traffic had increased significantly to the point that we were forced to do hardware updates on almost a monthly basis. So even though I was not planning on moving just yet..., having to do the security update forced my hand a tad early.
The new server is significantly faster, with a ton more processing power that will serve us for some time to come, and once again, give us the flexibility and ability to do some really cool stuff in the future. =)
Because we had to move the forum to a new server, at a new datacenter, individual internet service providers may take some time to properly point your browser to the new IP address.... give it some time, but if you are reading this message, you are here. =) This should fully resolve and not be an issue within 24 to 48 hours.
In any case, I am sure there will be some fixing here and there that will have to happen, and new features that will be discovered. If you run into anything, start a new thread in this section and will help best we can.
Known things.... Tapatalk not connecting..... Investigating but I think they have not updated it or.... Their servers did not propagate to the new ip yet.... Will give 24 hours. Solved
Intermittent slowness..... We still have to make some tweeks to the server.... so bear with us. This will be resolved over next few days.
I see that on the page now. The form I had did not mention NJ....
Too late, sent it in. Most I lose is a stamp. Guess I'm the guinea pig.
We shall see.
PS: They can keep soft case. I have no use for them.
