Possible forum change: Magfed/Pistol play!

Here at PbNation we're always looking for new ways to attract and include new members. Recently some of you may have noticed an increase in pistol and other modes of magfed play at the field. While these and pump both fall under the category of "Limited Paint" play, there is some discussion about whether to incorporate Pistol and Magfed Play into this forum. I'm confident that Pump PbN members, like pump players, will be accepting of the change and interested in talking to similarly-styled players. However, I'm here to ask your opinions:

1. We change the forum name to "Limited Paint Play", the most inclusive of titles, allowing pump, pistol and magfed players mingle here.

2. We change the title to "Pump and Pistol Play", splitting the forums under subheadings like Small Talk and some manufacturer forums.

3. We leave things the same and add a separate forum, leaving magfed and pistol guys to fend for themselves.

Of course, if you have anything to add beyond the poll options, we would love to hear it!

I think you need a separate subforum for magfed.

The more the merrier. This forum is fairly slow, i doubt threads are gonna get lost with the added traffic.

Im sure it would be fine to include pistol/mag fed guys, but thats really a different topic/play style. Imo there really should be a new mag fed/pistol subforum under "ways to play paintball"

My first instinct was to say pump and pistol ... but now I gotta think it over. They are somewhat different types of play, if compatible.

Pump isn't necessarily limited paint so IMO that's a non-starter.

I'm thinking #2, under the title pump play, then split to "open class" and "stock class" then split further into "pistols," "stock class pumps," and "full size magfed markers," or something like that. Just my $.02

I would say that since mag-fed play seems to keep growing why not encourage that and give them their own section.

Entirely possible, and something also being considered under the second option.

The mag fed crowd seems to lean to milsim. I would think they would rather be in the scenario/big game forums.

Can a guy with a new DAM really relate to our discussions. The new Hammer 7 is a mag feed, but I see it as a pump gun first, not just a mag feed.

All of these types of players (with the possible exception of some "heavy" pumpers) do their best to make their shots count. What I'm suggesting is broadening the discussion here while allowing for specifics as well.
