  2 Minor Updates to the Rules
Posted by: rocketfoot - 10-18-2012, 10:11 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (12)

This is just another alert to some minor adjustments to the rules found here:

http://www.pa2a.org/misc.php?page=rules

Rule #3 has been adjusted to prohibit all forms of bigotry.

3. Bigotry is prohibited. Do not post anything homophobic, explicitly sexual, anti religious or anti racial. This includes content listed in your username, signature line and profile as well as titles, subject lines and context of threads. We want you to be able to express your feelings while debating issues but we don't want inflammatory remarks, only designed to offend other parties, factions or entities, posted in the forums, this includes sarcastic remarks and one liners about someone's race, religion or other personal beliefs.

Rule #7 has also been revised to cover some copyright issues that may crop up from time to time on our forums:

7. Copyright laws can be vague and difficult for any online media. In order to help avoid any infringement issues, please be sure to cite your source when ever posting news articles or other content from another internet source. Also, be sure to post a blurb or snippet (no less than 10% of the source article) along with the link. This helps forum threads make more sense in case the original posted links change or disappear. This might not always be enough to satisfy some sources but it is a step in the right direction. Please do not duplicate the entire original article as this may exceed protections extended under 'fair use', even when the original source is cited. If we are ever asked to remove copyrighted material, we will have to comply.

As I've mentioned before, we are not becoming more restrictive, we are just trying to provide a fair and consistent set of rules and guidelines to help keep the forums professional, entertaining, informative and inviting to all gun owners and 2nd A supporters despite their backgrounds. As we continue to grow, we need to adjust these rules from time to time.

That is all...please review these revisions as well as the entire rules page. They are clearly posted under the 'Forum Info' tab so there should be no hard feelings when warnings are issued for posted rule violations!

  News Forum and minor forum layout update
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-29-2012, 06:48 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (7)

After a few weeks, I noticed that we didn't have a forum to catch non-gun related news and current events, so I condensed the Blotter into a News forum for these types or posts plus I made the PA gun related and national/world gun related news as sub forums to the News forum. This should help ease the pain of deciding where to add your news articles! Completely random stuff can still go in the Odds & Ends forums as usual!

Also, not in the rules and guidelines yet but we may add this eventually...when posting news and current event articles, please don't just link and article and move on...post a blurb from the article as well as some of your own commentary on the subject. This helps with SEO and page ranking and all that, plus it makes reading the forums more informative and fun for everyone! It also helps protect against any possible copyright issues.

One other thing that we have been watching is the influx in religion focused topics that have been surfacing lately. Firstly, many of these topics are a stretch for the Politics forum, they should go in the Odds & Ends forum, but regardless...please, please, please do not post bigoted comments in these articles! Feel free to present the facts and add commentary but refrain from the inflammatory anti-religion and even racial remarks. These kind of statements are against our forum rules and although we haven't had to issue any formal warnings yet, it may come to that. We are hoping that you guys clean it up in the notion of self policing that has been working well so far!

Thanks guys!

  Forum Rules Update

http://www.pa2a.org/misc.php?page=rules

We have made a few minor changes to the forum rules. Please take a few seconds to read over them. The link can always be found under the FORUM INFO tab up top.

One noteworthy change is that we now allow links to graphic material to be posted along with a warning of what the reader is about to see when they click!

  How to post videos & photos
Posted by: andrewjs18 - 09-22-2012, 11:20 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (13)

I figure we should write something up about how to post videos and photos on the site so people know how to do both.

videos:

for videos, it's simple: post a direct link to the video and it'll auto embed itself into the post, for just about all of the popular video sites (facebook, myspace, youtube, photobucket, etc.)...

photos:

for photos, you're going to need to have the photos hosted somewhere, whether it be on facebook, photobucket, imgur, or whatever.

once you have the photos hosted somewhere, place the direct link to the image between [img][/img] tags.

for example: [img]direct link to image[/img].

that should do it!

  Index of Statutes
Posted by: gnbrotz - 09-22-2012, 08:34 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (25)

We are in the process of building an index of statutes that are in some way related to firearms. Rather than wait until the project is complete, we are rolling it out in it's infancy, with much more to come as time goes on.

The index page is linked under the "Firearm Info" tab. The index is complete, but the child pages are still a work in progress. Statutes that are not yet available are stricken through, but at least you will be able to see what all will be coming.

For now, we're going to try and focus on the statutes that are shorter in length, as they go up quicker, and then we'll dig into the longer ones.

Please let us know if you find any errors, or if you think there is a statute not included that you think should be.

  Share Button Added
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-19-2012, 07:21 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

There is now a tiny share button added to the footer of every forum page. It allows you to share what ever page you are on with your favorite social media...Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, etc...there are over 300! Just navigate to what ever thread or even the index page and then scroll down and click the share button. It is located at the bottom right hand side of every forum page. Clicking SHARE in the dropdown menu will show all 300+ options!

Enjoy!
