Never said it would tick me off..I have no say one way or the other. Just stated what I thought would happen. Time will tell, I reckon.
A wise man speaketh.Well, and FloridaConcealedCarry is a staple.
A member can get pissed off and leave, get sick and leave, fight with his wife and leave, get drunk and leave, get tired of Sully and his outrageously fabulous Panther holsters and leave, or even just leave for the sake of leaving.......and that same member can come back and the core will be here, open arms. Changing the core is risky in the fact that it will change the dynamics of the whole forum.
I figure most people don't like change, the kind of change that takes away their comfort zone. This Forum definitely projects one big comfort zone, with an open door for new people to enjoy that zone. That cannot be re-created on purpose, it has been built over time. It may not maximize profitability, and I am a capitalist to the 11th degree, so I vote the name FloridaConcealedCarry remain intact. I also vote that the name FloridaConcealedCarry not be blended or married to another forum that can change our dynamic of being serious and safe about concealed carry and project ar toting/frog shooting yahooz. Not to say my life in the swamp is a bad thing, it just doesn't project well in a serious concealed carry community.
Now let's get to the real logic......Steve needs to increase profitability...business is business.....What Steve needs is more forum members and advertisers who have holsters, firearms, classes, etc........For Concealed Carry....so advertisers must be tailored with the name of the forum. No need to advertise AK's here. We have one million Concealed Carry licensees in Florida, the trick is to bring more on board, and bring them slowly so we keep our community feel, and slowly increase advertisers and profit.
I've built some relationships there, but came here when I was looking specifically for Florida related info. I guess I've not felt as welcome here. Hey, you asked...sorry. I carried concealed in lots of states and moved here to Florida after I retired in 1996. I like what I've seen here. The focus seems right.Out of shear curiosity, why?
I appreciate the candor. Wondered why so many lurk but don't get involved. Also what other"defensive" forums offer that is not offered here. Sorry you haven't felt welcomed. Sometimes you need to jump in the deep end of the pool and force the issue. Anyways, thanks for answering, and welcome to the forum, belatedly.I've built some relationships there, but came here when I was looking specifically for Florida related info.

So true. I used to belong to a now defunked car club up north. The name was Rekless Racing. Now the group wasnt about rekless driving or being an ass. It was the exact opposite. We did car shows for charity and only ever raced on the track. Sure some of the younger members may have done some stupid stuff, but the club didnt. Still because of the name we had public image. Just the name. Something so trivial caused sometimes big problems.Your name is something so very yours, yet seldom used by you. But, it is of great importance, to you and the people around, for your name is your identity. What everyone calls you by is what you are known by. It is something that is tightly linked to you. Interestingly, your name is also something devised by someone else, although you have to live with it throughout life! Does your name affect your personality?
