    Forum Organization

    Please post here comments and suggestions on the organization of the forum. I'm always open to improvement. If you want a new category added or think an existing category is redundant let me know and we'll see what I can do.

    Lex,

    You definitely need to include a Gun Porn section. One of the hardest things to find about the XCR is pictures.

    They ignored my email, I sent it a few days ago. Actually they did visit the forum (logs show the only visitors on the day i sent the email were from Utah) but I guess decided it was too empty or they just didn't want to deal with it at the moment? I don't really know.

    I'll try again when we have a couple hundred members.

    Maybe sections for items for sale, for trade, or want to buy. Just a thought.
    What can one man do? You never know until you try.

    Hell you may want a section called Techincal updates and Manufacturer notices and let Robinson post them here.

    I will mention that when I call them.

    Re: Forum Organization

    I've been thinking about the forum organization when/if the XCR Medium arrives. Depending on how incompatible the Light and Medium will be it may make sense to split off the "Owners Lounge" section for each variant as certain things may work on the Medium and not the Light and vice versa. Ammo, field experience, accessories, etc will all be very different (or maybe exactly the same?) between the Light and Medium. Here is one idea i had, let me know what you guys think:

    General
    - General Discussion
    - Robinson Armament

    Trading Post
    - Buying An XCR
    - Listings

    XCR Light
    - XCR Light 5.56×45mm NATO (.223 Remington)
    - XCR Light 6.8mm Remington SPC
    - XCR Light 7.62x39mm
    - In The Field
    - Gallery
    - Cleaning & Maintenance
    - Lights
    - Sights
    - Stock
    - Swivels & Slings
    - Other Accessories

    XCR Medium
    - XCR Medium 7.62×51mm NATO (.308 Winchester)
    - In The Field
    - Gallery
    - Cleaning & Maintenance
    - Lights
    - Sights
    - Stock
    - Swivels & Slings
    - Other Accessories

    I will remove the Ammunition subsection since that is caliber specific and move the existing posts into the "XCR Light 5.56×45mm" subsection (since that's the only ammo we've been talking about).

    My only reservation about the above layout is that there will be a lot of overlap between the rifles especially stuff like accessories. The same sling will probably work for both a Light and a Medium XCR. This is where I need help from you guys. Which sections do you think should be consolidated and moved into a General XCR section. Or do you think it's fine to have a separate Lights, Sights, Swivels & Slings and Other Accessories sections?

    Anyways, just thinking ahead here in case the XCR-M does come out early in 2008 per the Robinson Armament FAQ.
