Welcome to the new Proto forum!!!

You asked for it, you got it.

PbNation.com gives you the new Proto forum!

So please take a minute to read over the forum rules (stuck to the top of the forum as always). Some of the links still go to the Dye Matrix forum but that will change as I have more time to tidy things up in here.

If you see a Thread/Post that is breaking the rules or that is out of place please use the "Report this post to a Moderator" function for that post. We will take a look at it and take action if need be.

As Im sure some most of you already saw someone took the liberty to make a Proto pictuire thread and a Proto video threads so go ahead and post up your Pics and Vids in them(but don't post text!!).

If you have any qustions, suggestions, or comment about the forum please feel free to ask in this thread, but please no OT posts.

Enjoy!

Hmmm, this wasn't the seperation I intended. I would've liked to see the forums classified by method of operation as opposed to brand name, since Proto matricies and Dye matricies function in virtually the same manner, while Slg's, and Pmr's function more similarly to an Ion than a Matrix. Oh well, at least Dye will be less cluttered.

Dude, yes.

Still think they could've just seperated into a PMR/SLG thread rather an all Proto's

I was expecting this also. There is still valuable info for PM5/PM6/PM7/PM8 owners in the DYE Matrix forum, since they use the same fuse bolt, and LPR as the DM markers.

i agree with erayser and everyone else.. but the pbnation gods have spoken

and we have been given a proto forum to kill precious time with that we could be using in a much more useful manner such as helping out mankind or even applying ourselves and doing something so that we grow and become more mature...

but isnt that what makes pbnation fun

I would like to vote for this seemingly easier classification for the Dye forums. Now there's two boards to go thou for info on the true Matrix (DM/PM)

-DYE-
<DM/PM>, <PMR/SLG>, <Vintage Matrix>

Thanks for the split none the less.

If you'll notice the Proto forum just says SLG and PMR. The main purpose of this forum was to make sure those threads went here. We want to make sure those newer users get the help they want and we want to make sure that the Dye forum is less crowded.

If you notice, there's no rule saying that PM5/6/7/8 threads need to go here. We know how similar they are to the Dye equivalent.

interesting...but doesnt proto = pm5/6/7/8?

i am confused and so are alot of people considering all of the pm5/6/7/8 threads already in the proto section.

EDIT: noticed a mod moved a pm6 thread to this section from the dye section. apparently the mods dont understand either.

Sure, mods are moving the threads that are reported or when people ask. If you have a PMx and would rather get input from people in the Dye section, I see no harm in posting a thread in there. If we have to make rules we can, but I really hope you guys can handle it if we don't.

I understand what you are saying, but it will be very confusing. You are saying that PMx owners can post in either forum. The probem with this is looking/searching in both forums would be a pain. If you meant for this forum to be for SLG and PMR owners, then shouldn't the subforum title be more specific?

Anyhow, thanks for what you guys have done so far.

It would be simpler to have a Dye/Proto Matrix forum, SLG/PMR forum, and Vintage Matrix forum. It would be a lot less confusing than what we have now.

Confusing was the wrong word. Just a little redundant, since PMx owners can post in both forums. Not a big deal. That's if you don't mind going to both forums to search or answer the same questions.

By that definition the PMR would fit in two forums. Proto Matrix Rail.

I agree with that. The big deal was moving the PMR and SLG threads out of the Dye forum.

Yeah that was my bad......I started moving threads before I read

But like John said PM5/6/7/8 owners can still post in the Dye forum. If the thread starter wanted it moved to the Proto forum they can report it and I will move it for them, if not I will leave it in the Dye forum. PMR and SLG owners however must post in here.

later
