Not completely done, still will pop in to see what's happening.
This site is looking fantastic, with lots of great features and interesting areas to check out.

Funny thing was that when I first went on NJH, I had zero intentions of ever posting on the site

I lurked for months, that was the first Forum of any type that I belonged to.

I see myself slowly going away from it, sure isn't the same as it was in it's infant stage, very enjoyable back then. I was asked if I knew the new owner and I don't know who it is. Wouldn't Kris know the new owner? Paper work must of been sighed

Hey all, just keep in mind, as with any club or organization, it's the people who make it what it is, not necessarily the name. Once more people come over to this site, and they will, you'll feel right at home again!

Fine, so why didn't you(mods)lay down the law? I know drag hand tied the hands of the mods but since before the sale an mostly after the site has gone down hill.

Red, just to give you an idea of what went on behind the scenes over there.

We were made to let stuff slide while Kris was in charge, he wanted nearly everything left alone. I remember at least twice trying to remove something that I thought was damaging to our sport and he actually yelled at me for moving the posts, then moved them back. He liked the controversy and that's what made the site so popular. People love drama. He knew that, and that's why NJH thrived and still is with no leadership or moderation.

After he left, (which we still aren't even 100% certain about, though he swears he doesn't own it, yet the info at the bottom still goes back to his company and address).... we were unsure of what we were supposed to do. We posted several messages trying to get answers from the new owner on how they'd like it run. Never a response. Is it still just Kris and he gave up caring and interacting? Maybe. I wouldn't blame him, he worked hard as hell to get that site up and running and got sick of dealing with it. He expressed that to us numerous times. Him wanting to sell it started off as a joke just a few years in. Then it grew into reality.

Finally, the moderator controls were not quite as easy to use there (though there were a few I prefered)....and we had ZERO help from automation because the entire site was hand scripted by Kris.

Add to that a dwindling number of active mods and an out of control amount of traffic and it was a full time job trying to make a dent for the few guys still actively moderating.

Do you know how many people over there had multiple screen names and would :stirring: on one and act serious on another. We tried to control that, but it was beyond what just a few hands could do. About four of us finally got the ability to start banning the multiple accounts right at the end when Kris went radio silent on us.

So you have to understand, for everything you see us do "out there" on the main pages, we are running around doing 100 other things behind the scenes trying to make decisions and take actions on everything. Trying to resolve conflicts between members, banning spammers, etc.

It's not easy and we receive no pay or perks, and are often criticized; we only do this because we're trying to help. It got to the point where members drove me away from NJH. I didn't want to participate anymore. I would find myself just scanning threads and doing my best to moderate a site that I didn't want to participate in anymore. I mean, I'm no different than you or anyone else on here. I want to enjoy a place where we can talk about hunting, share tips, learn things, share stories, laugh with friends, engage in debate, etc.

Anyway, hopefully instead of telling you how much different things can be, we can SHOW you by keeping this site free of the non-sense.

Matt is trying to give us all the tools necessary to do that, so fingers crossed it'll never become the Wild West here.:kissy:

“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

The prostaff era killed it for me. Should make the prostaff [please don't use that word here -- BowhunterNJ] pay to post on this site. It seems like when money gets involved things get to competative.
I spent most of my money on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.
