    THIS SITE, PARTICULARLY THE ANSWERS SECTION, IS GETTING PLUGGED UP WITH FLUFF!!! This was a bit of a problem when I first came to this forum last year. Now it's an epedemic (or rather a plague). Over the past couple of weeks up to four pages of new "questions" are being posted daily. Most of these are drivel. I find I am daily having to sift through six or seven pages of new fluff to find a couple of answers or discussions with any merit whatsoever. THIS IS NOT A CHAT ROOM (and I think F&S; made a serious error in judgment not including that option). Keep the chat to a minimum. DON'T KEEP ASKING THE SAME QUESTION OVER AND OVER AGAIN. If you don't get an answer the first time, either no one knows or no one cares. DON'T ASK QUESTIONS THAT HAVE NO ANSWER OR AN ANSWER THAT EVERYONE KNOWS OR SHOULD KNOW (i.e. Why can't we hunt deer when the season is closed?, etc.). I mean, I'm seeing way too much of this, especially from the younger crowd. And the rest of us should avoid responding to these. Sooner or later the message should get through. If some of these folks don't get the message, they are going to wind up talking to themselves. I am happy to share fifty-some years of hunting/fishing knowledge but I'm getting tired of wasting a lot of time trying to do it. And I don't think I am the only one who's getting fed up.

          Ha, I was wondering who would snap first...+1

          Maybe F&S should create a "next generation" area with answers to some of the more mundane questions, OR maybe some of these "posters" could SEARCH THE ARCHIVES....

            Good post, I have almost stopped visiting the site because of this.

              I agree totally, things here change by the month but always downhill. This point issue needs to be fixed.

                maybe F&S Online can set a limit....if your under the age of 16 you can only post 2 questions per 24 hour span.

                  I don't mind mentoring or a little babysitting, but consistently some of this is past foolishness.

                    Great post Ontario..I have been trying to ignore the repeat questions and on liners that can be found by a simple google search...I know anytime I have asked a question I have always gotten first rate answers from ya'll. Most of these people do not understand that points have no bearing it is quality not quanity and there are only a few of ya'll that actually qualify on the quality portion..and most fo ya'll didnt fill out the form besides who wants the pople that ask "can you hunt a deer with a toothpick" to rate gear that I would want an educated opinion on before making such a purchase

                      Got to agree with ya Honker. I was feeling the same way this AM when my attempt at a little humor seemed to offend someone. Funny thing was I dont recall mentioning anyone in particular... You probably have the best solution to the goofy repetitive questions, just ignore them and maybe they'll go away.

                        Some things I'd like to see addressed on this site, or maybe look at things that other sites have:

                        -Being able to rate or report a question without having to answer it.

                        -having an 'edit' function to an answer you are posting or have posted.

                        -have a way to PM another user within the site.

                        -maybe set up a chat section for the folks that want to get their jollies yakking and txting and and stuff....

                        -have a way to post a picture with an answer or a question

                        -maybe reevaluate this whole 'points' thing. If that's your only motivation for being here......

                          i actually stopped visiting for awhile because of this and the slow loading images 1 of 10,000. i agree with ya'll and i believe this site does need a facelift and better control from the users stand point.

                            The server that F&S is using could use a new carburetor or something. I have a fast connection and a decent computer.....

                            Looks like with the all the big-time paid advertisers they'd want something that was more 426 hemi than slant six for server speed and bandwidth..

                            FRUSTRATING is not even close to the right word sometimes.

                              Well, thanks folks. Whew! I didn't know how this was going to go over but, as I said, I'm getting really fed up. Figured there was nothing to lose and everything to gain. Sgaredneck, I agree with your suggestions 100%. I don't think you missed anything. Everyon, feel free to chime in. We should compile some of these suggestions/gripes and get them to the editors before more "quality" posters like hunterD and teuf bale out.

                              I can appreciate that it is good for F&S business to be able to boast of a forum that has godzillion posts a day. However, if a reputable website sponsor starts looking at the "quality" of the posts (and some of the complaints), it could cause F&S business managers some problems. Hopefully, the sponsors' business managers would know a toothpick from a hunting rifle. Maybe not.
