PbNation Email Newsletter making a comeback

So we are in the process of bringing our email newsletter back. Is there anything you'd specifically like to see included? Or even left out?

Help us out so we can make something you actually want to read.

I didn't realize there ever was one. Interested in getting it! I would like reading about paintball in all aspects, so any news/articles on things would be great. Beginner style tips and such I would like to see be kept to a minimum though, I think most of us here know the basics.

Suggestions

I was not a member of the site when this originally was going on. None the less some suggestions on what I would like to read would be team news, on things like whos leaving or joining a team and picking up new sponsors. Also updates on new products coming out. Links to the new pbnation videos would be awesome too. Just some suggestions I'm sure I will think of more and post again

Thanks John

Tying it in to the site by doing maybe a "Member Profile" would be kind of cool.

Spotlight on local/regional happenings.

Then & Now - Today's gear reviews as well as some more "vintage" gear reviews.

I'll work on some other thoughts, too. It's been a while since I've done any real writing... this might be a good time.

I just want as many ads on it as you can possibly fit on one page!

I just want to see the latest news as it becomes relevant... with that being said, I don't want to hear about the axe being released in a new color every other week.

Wait, make a paintball news letter for a site...

... Which reports on paintball news.

Why not just have people come to the site to read stuff? I would think that would lead to more ad views which makes more $.

Some of us don't have time to be on PBN and hit all the different sections or catch all the latest news like we would like to. So a nice e-newsletter that hits all the major topics and sections in a concise way(with maybe a few newletter only articles) would be cool.

Ooooo....I like good newsletters :-)

News highlights, curator corner highlights, tech highlights *wink wink*, showing off some of the popular threads that don't get seen a lot, maybe showing off some neat markers in the for sale section. Basically some of the same things that get posted on the front page :-)

also if you have guys writing columns about things like buying guides, or player help, how to play better, where to play, tech tips...etc? there are tons of people on here who have an abundance of knowledge to show off that could contribute....

I kinda want to see John do a column of the goings on in the behind the scenes of PBN :-)

I like this idea. We have some members who are really interesting and have unique stories that go well beyond paintball.

It might be cool to have stories about paintball and the differences or unique aspects of it by location. Across the US, Europe, Asia, etc.

I'd also be interested in seeing a field profile. There are some awesome fields out there (EMR, Skirmish, Nuketown) that are well known. What are the diamonds in the rough that are out there, hiding from a lot of people?

Maybe a "blast from the past" section highlighting an old ad, or something from the early days of paintball.

I like the idea about featuring members and fields. It's fun to learn about our little paintball world.

If the news section wasn't filled up with hype threads and the like, then I don't think there would be a need for this.

Isn't the front page supposed to hit all the big topics? Why not just use that?

You could do a member of the (whenever the issues come out), and maybe have a short team bio on random teams that members of pbnation are on. You could probably do this by having an application made and just go in the order you receive the applications so you don't have to review like 50 new ones each week.

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.
