I no longer see Ammoland, Long Island news, etc.
Did my settings get messed up or was it discontinued on LIF?

If you guys read them then we can get them back. I always thought they were a waste and never saw much activity.

I have been having a lot of issues with "likes" taking a long time to register/update on a post.

the only time I ever even saw the RSS feeds, it/was when searching for something... then I'd see 100 "ammoland" posts... and rarely what I was actually looking for.

We remvoed them because members had problems with server speed. But that will end soon when we move over to the new server in a month.
