PBN is charging fields to get extra info on them included in the field listings
AHHhhh I see that now... they should change the different headings to "I paid more than you to have my field listing at the top", "I paid something to have my field listing in the middle", and "I paid nothing to have my field listing at the bottom"

Because (New York for instance) to say LB Paintball a small, but average field is Premier to NVP Paintball a multi-million dollar complex is wrong... just my $0.02

If you had read the past 5 posts, you'd see that during this introductory period, we have RANDOMLY promoted several fields in each section to the upper tiers to illustrate the functionality of each.

Furthermore, what's wrong with non-mega fields having access to the same level of functionality and exposure that larger fields have? I don't know too many other places on the net where a small field can play with the big boys like this.

Personally, I think you are better off putting your $0.02 back in your change purse.

^^^ Recently all I see from pbnation (the company) is greed! From the "new" cost of becoming a supporting member (a few weeks ago when I ordered a shirt, I was going to become a supporting member until I saw it now costs $30 [thatís a lot of beer]), to this "if you pay us well put your field at the top of a list", and the purchase/buyout of pbreview. Pbnation (the company) has now/ is becoming a corporation instead of the place it once was. Thatís another $0.02 + the other $0.02 = $0.04 that you can sit on!

PbNation has been a LLC for several years now. If making a living is a crime, then a few of us are guilty. You are entitled to your opinion, but following your logic, pretty much any business is guilty of the same crimes.

^^^ I totally agree with you on that! I run a small (well it's large but) 2nd year outdoor paintball field in New York. With the cost of insurance (outrages in NY) and all supplies I make about $60 per week (and I just had all my rental equipment stolen 2 weeks ago) anyway luckily I have a day job. I have a freewebs account and some people make fun of that but it's FREE and gets the job done = saving money. I guess I am just upset that the equality of listings, will now be different for those that want to pay! And thatís all I have to say about that...

Well, I feel for your plight, but rest assured, like posting, being listed will always be free. The level of service your receive will increase with the paid listings, but that is the way everything works unfortunately.

That being said, if you have submitted revisions in the past that haven't gotten done, feel free to resend them. It only takes a second, and it helps improve the quality of the field listings for everyone.

Looks like the two I mentioned that were out of business have been removed (thanks!).

It looks like all of the detailed information about the fields/stores is still in the database, even if the place is merely a "Partner" instead of "Premiere" or "Ultimate". So just because it isn't displayed doesn't mean it's not available. And it looks like I can find a place's URL if I click on "revise". That's better than nothing.

How about a compromise?

How about ASMs get more detailed info, and regular joes and the unwashed masses get the way it looks now? The ASMs would still see a 3-tiered system, but even the "Partner" tier gets more than just a plaintext name, address and phone number.

<shrug>Just an idea.</shrug>

well, it doesn't show any of the field info because its under the Partner Field lists. And if there isn't gonna be any other info listed for the field, then I guess its correct.

When I click the revise button, the info to be changed is the same as before.


IMO, I think it'd be good if all the fields at least linked to their websites. But yeah, I don't have any say in what you guys do with your site, just my thoughts

We've gone through all of the revisions that we currently have available to us. If you see something that needs to be changed please submit the revision and we'll get to it.


Sorry about the delays but these are the sorts of problems that you have to deal with when releasing new code.

Eventually.. it requires a bit more development time, something I'm not sure we'll have for a bit.

Thats cool, although I hope one day it will be up there because there are a lot of Canadians on PBN.
