I'm moving the thread to the "suggestion box" but leaving a redirect in CFOA so people can find it.

HMShanna - I changed the title to more appropriately reflect what I believe you were trying to suggest. Let me know if you want it changed.

I agree. I think the real issue is the Regional Forums though. I think we have a lot of work to do in those to make it so people can find relevant events that they'd want to attend without allowing fields, promoters, and people like the starter of this thread to spam us to death.

maybe have sub-forums in the regional section to reflect each state?

course only problem with that is having multiple threads

just a thought

Maybe the regional sections should be sub-catagorized into a "general" and an "events" section. That way, those of us looking for an event don't have to scroll through 3 pages of team chit-chat type threads in order to find one.

I like the idea of a sticked thread..A calender of sorts, maybe with all events in a region with each event title linking you to the proper thread in the proper forum. You could do this for each forum in a region. Might could work

HMSShanna,

From reading your posts it seems that you are under the impression that because CFOA players may be interested in your event, that it is relevent to this forum and therefor you should be able to post it here... Here is why you are incorrect.

1. The PbN rules are decided, enforced, and interpreted by the PbN staff. The staff has determined that what you are asking will not be allowed. We respect the fact that you disagree. But, since PbN is a privately owned business and there is no "right" to post here or use this site, we will just have to agee to disagree and you will have to follow the rules if you wish to continue to post here.

2. reason number 1 aside, just because players that play the CFOA "may be interested" in your clinic or event, does not make it relevent to the CFOA forum. I currently have a lawn mower for sale. Most of the people that play in the CFOA probably have lawns that need mowing from time to time. Some of them "may be interested" in buying my mower. But that does not mean I should be allowed to post it here.

3. Now, I know what you are thinking.. what does my mower have to do with paintball? Nothing. Just like your clinic or event has nothing to do with the CFOA, which is the topic of this forum. But, just to humor you, I'll give you a paintball related example too. There are literally hundreds of fields, thousands of teams, and tens of thousands of players that live within the CFOAs operating area. It would be reasonable to assume that many of the players, teams and fields have things they'd like to announce, sell, advertise to people that play in the CFOA. And none of them have anything to do with the CFOA, which is why they don't belong in the CFOA forum.

4. This rule, of posting only things related specifically to the topic of the forum, is not being applied unfairly just to you, or just by Evilpoptart in this forum. It's a rule in pretty much every forum. I am the moderator of another tournament forum and I wouldn't allow it there either.

And by the way. Not sure if this has been pointed out before, but Larry and the people that run the CFOA don't own this forum, nor do they have any part in deciding how we run it.

I didn't read every post, so I appologize if this ground has aready been covered. I hope what I have said helps clear up any misunderstandings here.

I don't see the difference. And apparently neither does dictionary.com

per dictionary.com

Advertise • ad·ver·tise • verb

1. to announce or praise (a product, service, etc.) in some public medium of communication in order to induce people to buy or use it

2. to give information to the public about; announce publicly in a newspaper, on radio or television, etc

3. to call attention to, in a boastful or ostentatious manner

Frankly, we don't allow any non-(item) in the specific (item) forums. Should we allow questions about Angels in the Shocker forum next? How about a topic about XSV in the Ironmen forum, since some Ironmen fans might want to know about XSV?

Really, it's not that tough to put things where they belong. At least, that's what I keep telling my kids.

Bign, want to buy my lawn mower?

see what I did there? I directed that question at you. You clearly read this thread but that doesn't mean it belongs here.

This thread should be closed. I believe the point has been made.
