    We've had a couple reports of 'odd' technical glitches occurring today, likely due to our testing of a new ad system. If you see anything that seems out of the ordinary or flat out broken, please let me know either via PM or this thread ;)

    I was redirected to a blank page with a pop up ad. I had to exit off the site and and start over twice. No big deal and has not happened in a few hours.

    I attempted to post a couple of firearms for sale, noticing the procedure appeared to differ from previous tries. Now, I'm unable to find the posts with a generic search.
    Does this sound like something that would be affected?

    Anything odd after around 6pm this evening?

    Could it have been the new classified system test area you found? https://www.northwestfirearms.com/classifieds/

    If so, that's unrelated :)

    Thanks, Joe. I found my posts, after I responded to your query. Must've been doing something wrong.
