Thumbs up PbNation.com has been acquired today by a public company, CrowdGather, Inc.

Something exciting is happening to pbnation.com and paintball.

We wanted you to be among the first to know that pbnation.com has been acquired today by a public company, CrowdGather, Inc. (http://www.crowdgather.com/)

Quote:
CrowdGather is one of the leading networks of community forums, reaching millions of passionate users each month. The heart of CrowdGather is the richness of content created by our highly engaged audience of technology, gaming and lifestyle enthusiasts.

The CrowdGather Network comprises thousands of online communities, now serving over 135 million page views per month and 13 million unique monthly visitors. We provide a highly interactive and informational social network for members, a management and revenue-sharing resource for third-party forum owners, and a largely untapped advertising network for marketers worldwide.

We believe in forums.
The largest media outlet for paintball is now part of a growing community that will help expose paintball to many new advertisers and viewers. The purchased of PbNation.com by a public company is recognition that the paintball community is an important and desirable market with tremendous potential.

The CEO of CrowdGather is a long-time forum owner and operator and is completely dedicated and passionate in the believe that forums are an important and vital part of the Internet experience. He has a vision of how CrowdGather will successfully grow pbnation.com and the other communities associated with their team.

We had several companies that were actively pursuing pbnation.com for purchase. CrowdGather was the obvious choice as they have a long-term vision for the growth of forum communities and they recognized the tremendous value of our team and marketshare.

In the long-term, the paintball community will benefit as CrowdGather grows and brings major, national advertisers into CrowdGather communities. This is something that has always been elusive to the sport of paintball but now becomes a probable outcome as pbnation.com becomes a part of a larger whole.

We believe that the CrowdGather team (including you) will be able to grow and improve pbnation.com with the additional resources that will become available by this acquisition.

Thank you for making this the Home Page for Paintball and for your continued support.

All the best,
The Team at PbNation

What does this mean for people on PbNation?

Sweeping changes! Everything will be different! Nothing will ever be the same again! The sky will fall! Dogs and cats, living together!

In all seriousness, Crowdgather acquired the site because they liked PbNation, not because they wanted to change everything about it. They have years of experience with managing forums and PbNation will be the largest forum in the Crowdgather network.

This is your chance to let us know what you like the most about the site as well as what you think we do need to improve. Sanjay (the CEO of Crowdgather) will actually be checking this thread personally to read your ideas and suggestions. This is a real opportunity for you to help shape the future of PbNation.

It also means for the first time ever, you can even invest in PbNation. Crowdgather (CRWG) is a publicly traded US company. This acquisition is a step towards paintball being more recognized as a mainstream activity than ever before.

Also, I'm sorry to disappoint all the trolls out there, but your friendly neighborhood mods, mega mods and admins will be sticking around. We're in this for the long haul, and we plan on keeping PbNation the best paintball forum around.

I read that as "sausage fears". It's supper time.

Going to have to figure out how to pick up some stock. Very exciting things ahead!

I think if you could add more color schemes, that's all i really see that you could change, the site is very nice as it is. Just new colors would be interesting

I'm no troll, but I get infracted/banned all the time for calling out trolls and dishing what they give right back at them.

More mentally competent mods would be great.

That is where you are doing it wrong. Use the Report this post to Mod button. Or post the thread in TTAM section. When you dish it back out you are no better then the troll.


This should be interesting ride as time goes on. Heres that it goes the best and we see even bigger improvements. Android app

You're getting infracted for instigating someone, which can be considered trolling.

Just ignore them?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
