    Buffalo Range 2.0 - A message from the New Owner

    HELLO RANGERS!

    My name is microscopes and I am the new owner of The Buffalo Range. A little bit of history; I was a member of this forum a long time ago. Rarely ever posting, mostly reading. I came to truly love the diversity of viewpoints this forum held. The lack of over-moderation. The engaging and informative PRS section. The pre-draft analysis, training camp reports, and especially GAMEDAYS! Therefore, I was a bit heartbroken to come on here a few months ago and see what the forum had become.

    Enter microscopes stage left. After intense negotiations (just kidding!) Billsman accepted my offer to purchase the Buffalo Range. As the new owner, I have goals for this website - and all of them are with YOU, the poster, in mind. The most pressing items being:

    1) Bringing the speed of the forum back. We have begun sorting through the code and optimizing our server. You should already be noticing a faster, and smoother Buffalo Range. It will only get better!

    2) Bringing the old regulars back to the Range. I will send an email blast out to all current and past members. But I also need YOUR help. If you know some members that have left or were banned, contact them. Let them know that there is new ownership and we are welcoming them back.

    3) PRS is back open and will remain open. It will NOT be moderated. Have fun. Where's SHIVA? :)

    4) There will be monthly raffles. Prizes will range from Season Tickets to Jerseys to Autographed Merchandise. Details on this will come at a later date.

    5) There are thoughts about bringing the Buffalo Range CASINO back, where your winnings can be used to change other posters User Title, Avatar, or even apply them towards an extra ticket or two in the monthly raffle to improve your chances.

    We want YOUR opinion on what would make this a better forum. Don't be shy. Reply to this thread and let us know. Or stop on by the Technical Service forum and tell us what you're thinking.

    Some of the forums are being merged. All NFL talk will be in Hardcore Bills Talk. All NHL talk in the Sabres forum. As we roll out new features, there may be a few bugs here or there. Please help us out and let us know when you find one so we can get if fixed as soon as possible.

    Lastly, i'm always here if you need me. Send me a PM any time with any concerns, questions, or comments.

    GO BILLS!

  2. Rock on:

    Well, sounds really good. I would love this to work out. I am a German and this is my connection to the Bills society; almost since I am able to think. Best wishes. Unfortunately I do not know any posters personally so I cannot assisst in bringing them back.

    But please bring back: Mouldsrocks, Meathead, Zanthrax and so many others that I forgot the alias.
    Even Spiked and the Fishfan ...

    This sounds all really great!

    Can't think of any suggestions at the moment, I just wanted to express my gratitude for bringing back the Range back to normal.


    Edit~ I forgot, please bring back the thank and groan features.

    I second bringing back thanks and groans.


    The forum is much quicker already and bringing back the other forums will hopefully bring some more traffic.


    Thanks for the effort microscopes.

    loving that the speed is back and all the ideas in the OP. I would also love to see the Asylum back if that is possible.

    hopefully the banned members will let the past be in the past and come back home to the range!

    So far looks good. Hope it gets better. But it's the people that make it fun. For awhile seemed like the same 5 people posting. Hope it comes back with a vengeance.

    A Bills fan could have gone into a coma in 2000, just woke up, and be shocked that he had not missed a thing!!! HAHAHAHA

    I nominate this post of the month, maybe more. Seriously, seriously it encapsulates everything of importance in one sentence. An indie film maker could possibly do well with that concept. -StraightJ 10/7/12

    Thank you for this, in particular. The old model was keep all the other league talk in the NFL or NHL forum, but they let cross-over so those league forums sat idle.
