whos thinks we need a proto forum?

i do i do i do. i personally think if there were sub divided forums that would be better. heck if SP can get a dlux forum why cant we have a rail, proto, dye, and alg sub forum at least. or even a proto one. WTF m8s. this is the only forum where ur posts can get lost due to the amount of threads and how people dont read past the 8th thread.

We don't need a proto subforum. We need a pmr/slg subforum so we don't get anymore "omgzorz idk how to turn on my gun" threads. PM's and DM's are quite similar guns.

yeah but my point is we have people asking legit questions, and their threads arnt noticed because of all the omgz my rail is teh pwnage users.

like i asked if a pm5 frame uses dm6 triggers after 24 hours my thread had 0 responses and 160 views i had to up it the next day to get a response. see if you had all of the knowledgeable users or threads in say the dye forum and then all the newb stuff in the rail forum i think it would work well. like how SP did so they dont have a million omg my ion broked in the shocker threads. I know im generalizing but i think it would help.

I don't understand why the PMR and SLG need there own subforum. They are not the same. They don't operate the same, so why stick them in the same forum.

Well, I guess I rather ask a stupid question about a $250 gun then ask a stupid question about a $1200 gun. If I did that, then I would be a newb with too much money or rich parents.

I may be wrong, but I thought the PMR operates like the DM/PM without the LPR, while the Slg was a sear tripped bolt kinda like a tippmann. Please enlighten me.

dm/pm forum (basically the same guns, many questions are the same)
and
slg/pmr forum (not the same guns, but not worth further separating.)

eh the pmr is kinda like an unbalanced spool imop. kinda like an ion but with a bigger dump chamber.

the slg is like a spyder with a spooly bolt imop.

I don't see any reason for a seperate Proto forum. However I would agree the SLG and Rail should have seperate subforums, although not a shared subforum.

I agree that it would be more organized in the forums if they were seperate, but since this topic has been around for a while and its not looking like anything is changing to soon I would suggest paying the $17.95 and become a supporting member since I've noticed that the majority of the people that are upset about the issue are not one, so that u can search for a specific topic/thread if it is that important and u don't want to look through threads or are unable to find what u r looking for without searching (u also get 2 gold ups n some other stuff so your not just paying for the search feature). You would also be supporting pbnation and helping it grow instead of using it for free.

Me, personally, just seems the people who control pbn care only about Smart Parts. Every single SP gun has it's own subforum. They're new line gets a whole new forum. I'm not going to go paying money so that Smart Parts owners can have they're forum nice and organized for easy usage so that the guns that I use can have a single forum for every gun that is produced by them without subforums. When they start treating Dye the same as Smart Parts, maybe I'll become a supporting member. until then, they can FORGET IT!!
