My name is Philip, I work for VerticalScope.com. VerticalScope recently acquired sniperforums.com and will be taking over the management duties of the forum. Your familiar moderator and admin team will be the same people helping with the day to day forum management. We will primarily manage the technical functions of the site and support the mod team. Maintaining continuity as well as the spirit of the site is important to us. This means that little about the site will change for you the user while we continue to grow the community.

Over the next few days you will notice my team mates Helena and Kyle who will be helping me with the site announcements as well as members of our support team (they will introduce themselves in the site issues section). While we get to know the landscape of the forum and how things work we will be on hand to answer questions and get to know the unique needs of this community.

I will be working closely with the Admin/Mod team on ways we can help improve the order of things here and raise the level of your experience on sniperforums.com.

If you have questions please let me know, I will do my best to answer you all as quickly and thoroughly as I can.

What is Vertical scope?

Never mind.
Website management and marketing company.

Congrats to Mell for selling at the peak.

You are not gun culture people.
You are either Wall Street or Silicon Valley.
Bye

The site was acquired from another website management and marketing company. Nothing about the culture of this site will change.

Good, now can you shut off the streaming video advertising?

It runs up the data usage on my cell phone plan.
Pop up screens while I'm trying to read on the small screen are an annoyance.

I usually use an ad block to strip away everything but text.
Reader mode on BlackBerry works nicely.

You need to get one of those giant iphones so you can see the forum a hundred yards away.

I love shooting 5 shot groups through iphones. The shards sparkle so nice in my scope.

Welcome, Phillip. "Vertical Scope"? Is that owned by Ron Jeremy?

Hi I'm Kyle, I work with Philip.
Are you logged in when you see the auto play stuff and the others ads?

pop ups? are you logged in when this happens?

Can you grab me a screen shot of what happens. Also where are the video ads? are you using mobile view as well? also what browser are you using and what phone.

on mobile or on desk top? which ad auto plays?

Helena
The ad on the bottom left corner of the page, the ads change. I'm using Chrome on a iPhone and iPad. It scrolls down to the ad and when you try to return to the content it continues to to that, very frustrating. I understand the need to generate revenue but this is too much.

Hopefully this site won't go downhill with the change like snipers hide did!

VerticalScope: You'd probably be well-advised to just be quiet and sit in the background solving problems and increasing site functionality.

If it is only a profit-driven aquisition and change of ownership, nobody here cares, or needs to know anything further. Given prior history with this site, and others like it, unless you are legitimately experts in this field, nobody wants to hear from you. Your membership levels are a very delicate thing...handle them accordingly.

Why do I suddenly get audio ads - Toyota, etc - while I'm scrolling through this thread?
