Dave, we have always liked you but your comment hits below the belt.

Go sit in your corner.




cgn dot net is not dead, although it is nonfunctional at the moment. When it returns, we may not like the look of any new forum software interface but those things are streamlined to the point where you'd think you wound up in some preschool somewhere. They look horrible. I hope I'm wrong but TheHighRoad and Marlin Owners suffered similar fates.

As to when? we might see a renewed cgn? Who the heck knows. For our Fearless Leader, the Kezzy-boo (lol fighterpilot) found themselves in a perfect storm of having their great forum on an aging-but-still-functioning (and good-looking) vBulletin forum software platform, a server host that all of a sudden wanted to bail out of the business, a server change (last year, when the apostrophe problems appeared) and/or some Tapatalk b.s... a death in the immediate family... all at once.

We're willing to work with that. It's a little late to point fingers so let's just look forward to any new calguns dot net.

And you're still alright w/ me.

So I just tried to login, I guess the old site, and this is what comes up didn't recognize my password had to reset that, all my messages, Threads, contacts gone!  Is this what was supposed to happen? Shows I'm a "Newbie" now, had in excess of 4000 posts.

The old site isn't up and running... you were able to reset your password?

OMG.  My old user is no longer valid.  Had to create another one.  This new site seems to be missing a lot of data and sub forums when compared to the old site.  So sad.  LB

Which "new site" are you referring to?.org?

If so, .org is not new (it was created in 2006) and nothing from .net was ever to be migrated over to it, nor replace .net.
.org has always simply been a barebones rendezvous spot to get updates and such with minimal forums when/if .net ever had a temporary outtage.

I think I understand now...

They believe this site, calguns.org, is the upgraded calguns website. Even if that were true, all they have to do is look at the avatars and all of their sadness will go away.

Well, something is happening. Calguns.net error message has changed from 503 to "This site can’t provide a secure connection."

 ;D

Dear Jesus,
I admit that I am a sinner deserving of Hell. I am guilty for breaking your holy commandments. I believe that you died on the cross to pay for my sins, was buried, and bodily resurrected three days later. Please forgive me of my sins and take me to Heaven when I die.

I'm guessing if will be done soon, there will be a few hiccups, it will look and feel different, and everyone will be complaining about how much they hate it. Older members will cry about the good old days and new members will think is the best firearm website EVER. OT will have a new feature that roots out and deletes douchebags and bots.

I guess I could be considered an older member. I lurked from about 2005 and then joined .net in 2007.

I won't bitch about the way it may look different or anything else. Just as long as the site works again, it's easy to adapt to tere hanges. :)

We still have some fine tuning to do but the migration is done and the DNS/CNAME issues have been addressed and should be propagating through the servers now.
The Security Cert issue has been fixed as well and we're up and live.

The url for the forum is shorter and simpler now:  https://www.calguns.net/index.php
