Fairly new member here. Was curious if anyone has the same experience as me.
It's obvious that when you search Google for a Hi Point Forum that that "other forum" pops up several times before this forum.
I took a quick look at that "other forum" & set up an account. Once my (unpaid) account membership with that other forum was setup, I found I could not view pictures, I could not post anything or reply to posts. I figured, what the heck, maybe you must be a paid member to do these things. I tried to do the paid membership deal & was blocked for some unknown reason. I did message the administrators of the problems I was having & seemed to get the run around. :huh: :huh: :dunno:
I finally gave up & thankfully found this forum. Really weird situation going on over there at that "other forum". The only thing that concerns me is if anybody or all that attempt to be a part of that forum experiences the same issues I have, it certainly doesn't help the Hi Point name or reputation. Anybody else aware of the problems over there?
Thanks

I just checked, and I can see pictures.
I haven't been there for a long time, but apparently, I'm still a member. :dunno:

Fair chance it's the phone issue... not sure but?

Husk, did you just see the pictures or did you actually log in?

Also have to keep in mind this forum is hosted on a dot net domain not a dot com domain.

Point being? Just referring to the search engine positions?

If that's what you mean, there are a couple reasons of which some fixes are in the works. ;)

I tried logging on and never could. Signed up, got my password approved, then couldn't get on. So I tried here...been here ever since. All I wanted to know was if they changed the owners name on the t-shirts. That was 250 posts ago. Been a member of other sites for machining and motorcycles, but really never contributed much. I don't know why this place is different :dunno: .

Sorta, dot nets don't rank high with web crawlers. Least that's what we were told.

Bears maybe 10% validity. It's more content and keywords than .com or .net. We are trying to get keywords
installed as there are and have been, none. The addition of them should substantially increase our traffic.

I am not concerned with the search engine positions. Although, I realize this forum would get more traffic and members with a higher listing in the search engines.
My concerns are that other folks may be experiencing the same problems with a high traffic forum representing Hi Point. I am very happy with this forum.

I politely made the administrators aware of the issues by message. Not much else I cannot do as they stopped responding to my messages.

Long ago, Hi Point chose the other forum to represent their company and basically brushed us off. We are not what they consider to be family friendly because we sometimes cuss and make off color jokes. Also we are not Hi Point fan boys. We point the bad out with the good. Not exactly what a company wants out of a forum that represents them I suppose LOL
