    The way that things got on the other site, and like-minded people with similar ideas on how a site should be run.

    Hi Tony,
    Sorry to hear how badly they treated you over at Pro. I don't know what they were thinking when they made such a drastic change. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a drop in their activity as a result. I'm an IT pro, and hate the new setup.
    My beloved AKFiles has also turned to hell, but that was more an issue with them getting hacked, and trying to come back from that.
    This remains the only forum I like, so thank you to the staff here for maintaining a nice, and simple forum. The members are cool too, since this forums seems to revolve around transferables and other more exotic items, it seems to cut down on the garbage. (Not trying to sound like a snob, but I think most people understand what I mean, just ask any Pro member back in the day about what happened to that forum after HK released the VP9 LOL)

    Yes, we are lucky to have Uzitalk and I hope that HKproshop develops into an equally wonderful site. I would hate to lose the repository of information that is stored on hkpro, though. Were they treating members poorly or was it just the website changes? If they were being dicks, I will try to avoid the site...

    I am not enough of an HK purist (all my 'HK' fun guns are clones), and would like to have the 'clone' section on HKproshop. All the subsections by MKE, etc are breaking up discussions and diminishing overall traffic from my perspective.
    AWWWW NUTS!

    My understanding is the admins/owners/mods/whatever of Pro handled people voicing their distaste for the new site rather harshly.

    The HK Library now resides at Hkproshop--- we currently have the most knowledgeable people on HK anywhere.
    Check out all of the Sticky's--- you will be surprised how much "more" than HK that is there.

    Both member treatment and site format changes.

    There is a "clone" section, though not by specific name:

    https://www.hkproshop.com/forums/for...earms-talk.51/

    MKE (and similar) are only in the "Contract/Licensed" section.

    And when members were inquiring as to the reason for me being banned, they were also banned.
    Additionally, the section for discussing such issues, "Forum Issues" was totally deleted.
