We're no longer officially supporting Microsoft Internet Explorer.

While we will attempt to make the site compatible with later versions of Internet Explorer (7 and up) we will not officially support them and we make no attempt to ensure Internet Explorer 6 or lower works. So, if you begin encountering problems here with any version of Internet Explorer please use another web browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari instead.

Please do yourself a favor and avoid using Internet Explorer! It's slower, finicky, doesn't play well with many web sites and is considered to be less secure than all the other browsers mentioned above. So why risk it? There is zero upside to it!


Testing the new CloudFlare Content Delivery Network and threat blocking

We're testing the CloudFlare content delivery network which should help the site load pages faster. It also has an added threat blocking feature which stops malicious activity including: forum and comment spammers, email harvesting and more.

As the service is new, an extremely small amount of users might be incorrectly identified as a possible threat and challenged to complete a CAPTCHA form before being allowed to load the web site. These incorrectly identified users will be shown a challenge page with a CAPTCHA form which is used to verify whether or not the visitor is a human or a bot and it also is used to educate the visitor that his/her computer might be infected with a virus. However, no one will ever be prompted to download or install any software. All you will ever need to do is complete the CAPTCHA form on the challenge page...IF you should ever see it and chances are, you never will!

In the unlikely event you are shown this challenge page on, or or have any other issues with the new CloudFlare CDN please reply to this topic with any relevant info.


Major community upgrade in the pipeline

Once again we're working closely with the developers of UBB, the software which runs this community, and begun private testing of the next version of the software. It's a major rewrite and at this point it's still rough around some of the edges so we're not going to upgrade to it just yet. As development continues we will upgrade these forums to it and you'll get to help test all the new features before their public release.

The new version will have many new features including some you asked for and a few great surprises. I can't say anything else now but you'll be very pleased!! thumbsup


Classifieds Forum Rules Eased

Today we eased the rules in the Classifieds Forum so new members can post an ad as long as it meets the other rules. Previously, the rules required members have a minimum of 10 posts before they could post a classifieds ad.

We've also removed the restriction on new equipment. However, the forum is only provided for commercial operations or pro shops.

So if you know anyone looking to get rid of some equipment, new or used, tell them about the forum. Someone's trash is another one's treasure!
All the best,
Steve Mermelstein

Savings That Support
We need your help!
Rather than begging for donations we're asking you to do one simple thing to help keep these forums running smooth:
When shopping for anything on or eBay please use these links to go to the web sites.

This won't cost you a cent!
You'll still get the exact same low prices, deals and free or low cost shipping; it doesn't change anything for you at all! The items do not have to be bowling related; all purchases made through these links help us! and eBay will pay us a small commission for every sale and it's helping us cover the expenses.
