SC Village Forum Rules and Regulations

Theres a new sheriff in this sub-forum, and I don't take kindly to the kind of silliness that often runs rapid in these here parts.

In all seriousness though, we're starting to set up some solid rules and regulations to help us better serve you, and to keep you from flaming me.

- While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
- Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
- Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
- Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
- While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitors, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'ooh look, yet another paintball field' threads.
- We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
- Lets keep on topic areas on topic. If we have enough friends OTs are fine, but lets keep those separate, yet equal.

Remember, post early and post often.

A proper introduction
Hello out there in PbNation land! We at SC Village are trying to make a better experience for you, the player. To make that happen I, Meme, have been given great power, and great responsibility. Actually they just asked me to make a new PbN account and to be a lesion between owners and players, but the other sounds better. I'm here to answer questions and hear comments and concerns, not read about how many chicks you had 'relations' with and get flamed like a bonfire.

Why would they ask a little girl to do this kind of a job?
I've been playing for almost 10 years, and have worked for the NPPL, PSP, APPA, Paintball Sports Magazine and SPLAT Magazine. Oh and they hope you won't be mean enough to make me cry.... I'm not holding my breath on that one.

I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly. Use this space to help me to help you!
~Love Meme
Questions? Comments? Concerns?
I'm the one you want.

A brief Introduction about myself; my name is David Siqueiros; I have been playing paintball for about 10 years. Starting from the days of Brass eagle stingrays, I have witnessed the curious evolution of paintball and have been sucked into the sport indefinitely. I love the sport and strive to help our growing hobby in any way possible. Lets work together to build our community and watch it grow.

My position at Giant Paintball Parks is Head Nerd. I handle all IT and computer related issues for all of our locations. I am also the main graphic designer and am responsible for all print and web media for all of our events, promotions and paintball parks. In addition to the above, I handle all of our websites and web marketing tools. Now this is a ton of work for one man to handle. So recently staff has been hired to help take some of the items off my plate. Meme has been instructed to go ahead and help me handle all of your questions and answers. Of course I will still be here, we will both be serving the wonderful paintball community. I urge you to keep asking legimate questions and have common courtesy and respect. We will in turn answer your questions to the best of our abilities.

HSP is actually doing pretty darn good for themselves. They have an event/venue going on almost everyday.

Okay, help me with understanding this new rule of "bounces count!" This is paintball, not airsoft. Hence the name "paint-ball." The ball is made to break on an opposing player, leaving a mark of paint to clearly show the elimination. Paintball "markers" are used to propell this paint, not paintball "bouncing" devices. Now granted, some paint/shells are harder than others. Hot weather also affects this.

The paint that your fields sell is not high quality (maybe other than SC Evil). If newer people are complaining about the paint bouncing and you have to implement this rule to sell paint, its not right. You will never get an experieced player complaining about shooting your paint and it not breaking. Why? Because, they dont buy it. They buy better grades of paint at a more resonable price. I am glad that SC allows and other Giant locations allows outside paint and I am glad that you make paint available to purchase, but you can't implement a rule that takes away from the game. Bounces have always been a part of organized paintball. Gio and Dennis both know this.

Now i'm not complaing about shooting your paint, i am complaining about the rule of being called out on a bounce. How are your reffs going to make a ruling on someone if they were bounced? Are they going to take the word of the player calling for the "bounce check?" Automatically pulling someone from a game, unless they clearly see it happening. It is clear as day now or was, if there is a paintmark w/shell on the person, they are out. How are you judging bounces. If I say, "hey reff check that guy, I bounced him on the chest two times," are you gonna pull him? See, where does it end?

PAINTBALL is just that, PAINTBALL. The only person that this rule may benifit is SC Village. They dont have to look for a new paint company to supply their paint and can continue to have the same deal selling whatever they use. Beginner players will not come up to staff and complain that the paint isn't breaking, because bounces now count.

It is bad enough playing all these "Call of Duty" based games, when I come to just play regular elimination or capture the flag games. Refferes are even calling the fields "maps", just like the video game.

If you plan on enforcing these rules, leave for the beginner groups or if private group wants this rule. Intermediate or Advanced/Experience groups can do without it. It feels like they (whoever made this rule) are trying to make this more like airsoft. These are two different games.

SC Village used to be more of a fun place to play. You can rarely get the refferees to do back to back games. Especially when you walk out to Baghdad, Kuwait or any field for that matter. If you are reffing an intermidate to advance group, part of that perk for playing in that group should be to play more games a day. I used to have 12 games in before lunch break back in the days. Now the reffs take 5-15 minute breaks before starting the next game.

I dont even want to get into the new 2013 rule of using a dead rag. That is also a joke. Holding up a rag above your head is not going to stop paintballs from hitting you. If you are slow about getting out or play on, you will get shot....even with a rag. You are never going to be able to stop that aspect in paintball. yes, you may be able to minimize it, but a rag is no different then a hand or gun up. The problem is that too many people play on or take a long time to get out (opposing team thinks you are still in). Its that simple!

I have been playing at your fields for more than 25 years. For the field who created the "speedball concept" and is know as the "world famous Sat Cong Village," this sure feels like a step backwards.

"sorry if this is in the wrong section. i havent been on here in years. Since SC supposibly listens to their players who pay membership fees and bring in other players, I felt maybe they will see this!"

I totally agree with the above post.

I have been playing paintball for well over 20 years and going on an off to SCV for the longest time, on and off for a couple years here and there. I've seen all the changes the park has gone through, when the older arenas were added in and when 10man tournaments were held in the backwoods fields.

I have heard of many rules for paintball, but the "bounces count" rule just takes the cake. It's stupid. Why even play paintball or invest hundreds of dollars into the sport if you are going to implement rules like this? Maybe it will start a trend at the next PSP, NPPL or Living Legends when bounces count. Hell, Pro Players might even start playing honorable when they catch all those bounces running off the break during World Cup. The rule is a joke. Throw it out along with the dead rag rule, or keep it only for beginners, which the staff supposedly "regulates".

Let paintball be paintball.
