H.P.F.F. News
« on: 01 Sep 2015 - 01:16:36 »
This may not be news to some of you but I just found out about it this evening. It would appear that after all the dust up over selling out to Groupbuilder, they in turn sold out less than three years later to someone else.

Our old beloved HPFF, is now owned and in the hands of a multi-National conglomerate. So sad,...

So, Jones sold HPFF to GroupBuilder, who sold to OutdoorHub who is owned by Carbon Media.

Oh, and they're still using MY icons I created for that forum and recreated in better quality for here. I should send them a DMCA notice for those.

*sigh*

The "trying to make a buck" idea I can go along with.  But it still sux.

Don't know about anyone else, but my username/email is missing entirely. I checked. Though all posts I made over there are still attributed to me. My email/username combo "is not recognized".

Just thought it would be interesting to note the further change in ownership. It has changed from a user/owner community driven forum to just another cog in a lumbering corporate machine.

I have no idea what username and password I even used over there. I know that I was "unbanned" when one of the guys who stayed there and got promoted to mod contacted me wanting to use my photo's and specs on resetting the JCP magazine ears (I moved the pics to a different photobucket folder...lol) so they plated nice and let me wander back in, although I never did let them use the specs. Guess someone there had to figure them out on their own or something.

Hi;

     have not been in that site for a very long time.  Are the people there still asking the same old questions in different ways and/or too lazy to search the site ?

Rg_86 went out in an epic blaze of glory. Every thread had a go to universal shooting sports link in it. It must have taken them hours to delete all of that.

I got booted and banned for the usual "sellout" blast, but they reinstated me once they found all my pics moved on photobucket...I went and dug through my notebooks and found my old site name and password and logged in, had a few private messages from the admins asking how my Hi Point was doing, etc.

Last time I was there I reported a tutorial for a full auto conversion and that they where still claiming to be supported by HP with one of my numerous puppet accounts. I forget witch one I think it stopped being fun after being banned about 30 times.

Can you convert a 995 or such.  Or was it talking about a AR type conversion?
