Member Participation UPDATE.....
« on: July 07, 2003, 10:14:00 PM »
Most important....Trad Gang.com is Member Oriented.  That was/is the main goal of Trad Gang.com since its inception.  We wanted to create an environment that you guys could freely participate in.  This place is all about you guys.  For those that want to learn, and those that want to help, and most of us get to do both.  I hope any of you that have the talent, or desire, to contribute will do so.  Your contributions are valuable to the sport we hold dear.  That is what Trad Gang is all about.

We have added a few venues since my last post about member participation a month and a half ago. Since then we have been graced with numerous timeless hunting stories in the "Stories/Articles" forum, and several valuable "How To" submisions. The Trading Blanket has exploaded, and we delete 5 to 10 a day it seems.  The Member Videos forum is a hoot, with the likes of Rusty, Dean, and Mussatto.  I look for many more great shorts in the future as the seasons begin to open up.  The ATHA forum us up and running.  If you are an ATHA member, please email us so we can give you access to post.  If you are not a member, you are welcome to read at your convenience, and find out what ATHA is about, and what ATHA is trying to achieve. The Comptons forum will hopefully open soon.

HIGHLIGHTS 2003 is also a new forum since my last post, as is the Prayers/Concerns forum.  

I'd like to take an opportunity to update the members of what all has taken place, and what all we have to offer. We have a lot more members here now as well, that may not have read the old thread way back on page X.

POW WOW : The 'Base camp' for discussion. All general topics of Traditional Bowhunting to be centered here. Specific topics will posted on specific forums noted below. This is a "member direct" forum.

HOW TO : Please email me any link that you feel would be beneficial to other members on how to projects. If you don't have a link, then email me a written composure, and we'll post it for you. This is a read only forum.

ARTICLES/STORIES : If you have any articles/stories that can be linked, then email them to me. Feel free to write about one, or more, of your hunts and email me if they are not linked. This is a read only forum.

VENDOR'S LINKS : If you know of a Traditional vendor that is worthy of praise, you may email and advise us of possibly adding them to the list. Please only notify us AFTER said vendor has visited the site, and would like to be added. We will consider said vendor, and contact them for permission to be added if we feel they would be a benefit to the list.

We have a few more forums that we are chatting about, and we will add them when and if they come to pass. If you have an idea for a forum, or anything unique to add, please email me. I can't guarantee anything, but we will welcome the suggestion.

Thanks, and have FUN!!!

I forgot to add, in addition to the forums added, we also have a Trad Gang Screen Saver available full of trad photos, and Trad Gang Hats in stock.  T-Shirts are in the works.

The T-Shirts will be moss green, and feature Trad Gang.com on the front, much larger on the back, and the phrase. "The Cyber Camp of Traditional Bowhunters".

Yeah guys, it started out as a joke.   Others use to post all those FITA-IFFA-UAA  FO FUM and so on, and I didn't have one to throw around, so I made one up just for kicks.

Just brought up the Paradise thread.

We do have a SEARCH and FAQ feature at the top of each page.

You can search ONE or ALL forums.

Terry, or anybody!,  

I can view the member videos if they are a *.mpg.  But when I click on the *.asf, or *.wmv files, a bunch of written gibberish shows up on the screen.  Like this:

0&²uŽfϦÙfϦ٥Ÿü[«v­oÜ·'ÕͪӼ!?o³[V_ûÉ•_T)*ÅÿýDj8[!4þ³T)ªf¨ÎàÝ~ö£

How do I view the member videos that end in a ".asf" or ".wmv"?

Thanks,
Carl Mathias  :help:

I have had the same problem. It is probably caused by what your browser has set up for external files.

My solution was to download the link/video to my hard drive or desktop and run it from there.  Your operating system will know what application to use for the file.

All the vid clips in the Member Videos forum will work with almost any version of Windows Media Player - and you can download a Media Player version for your specific MS operating system directly from Microsoft  HERE .

If you set Windows Media Player as your default application for viewing videos in all formats (WMF, AVI, MPG, MPEG, MOV, ASF, etc.), it will automatically open and play the vid clip when you click on the vid clip link.

You can also right mouse click on a vid clip link, and save it to your computer ("Save Target As...").

Trad Gang is geared specifically towards Microsoft Windows operating system users - Apple/Mac users may experience problems with videos.

Thanks a lot guys.  I am using windows media player.  I'll try the downloading trick and the settings for the file types.    :thumbsup:
