Pretty good explained! I always failed at making these (even with gold rods), my fins always ended up crooked or so. 4*

I can never get these right either. My fins are all lopsided and each fin has a different length. =(

I know eh. But even with crooked/uneven etc. wings, the bullets still fly further.

I just made a finned bullet and it turned out good. =D When I had the NAR some time ago, it shot 150 feet with fin ammo even though the fins were all crooked.

Cool! Fins tend to improve the range on a lot of guns. I got about 40 metres ones with finned rods out of a tr gun

Isn't 40 meters over 120 feet?

Something like that yes. (about 133 and 1/3th feet to be exact) I put 4~5 bands on a single shot tr like gun.

Were you shooting at an angle? I saw your FAMAS and it looked very realistic. =D

Yes, at a slight angle. And thanks! =D

Nope, it's just that the easy link system is part of the pro-only rich editor.

If all the pro benefits were handed out for free, what would be the point of pro?

Making links clickable should be a base feature, not something you have to pay for. Don't you agree?

Counter question; why should the extra benefits that I have paid for be given away to other members for free?

Because it was a feature that was taken away from us?

The rich editor is a relatively new feature, newer IIRC than pro accounts.

You misunderstand. I didn't say we should have the entire rich editor for free. I said we should have the ability to make clickable links for free. That's only a small feature in that editor, and one I feel makes the site more user-friendly to other people. Bartboy is right, non-pros have lost the ability to do this.
