Yeah, I noticed VerticalScope owned PBForum as well and had similar concerns initially (before I met the VS crew). My guess is that they bought it with some other forums and honestly didn't know what to do with it. PbNation was purchased by itself in a stand alone deal because they wanted PbNation, not as part of a larger purchase.

However, just the fact that they insisted I stay involved as part of the deal means that VerticalScope has a commitment to paintball.

I hope not. Not one person at VS has even hinted at that.

Because you don't understand how to quote posts? Just use the quote button.

Already on it! Those shouldn't be on the site at all and VS has someone already hunting them down.

Well, they did send me a dress code for when I visited the office that clearly did mention them... But I'm currently not wearing any and sitting on my couch now, so I still consider that a win.

you were part of the pbn army? I'm ashamed to call you a friend!

You can still see it as a blipp in time, if you know where to look during the "history" of drawball.

I know how to use the quote button. I just didn't feel like quoting everything and I wasn't certain on how to quote one specific sentence.

I hate PBN because the people here are half brain dead, did you honestly not notice the troll you fed?

Just use the quote button and then delete the part out of the quote you don't want. And yes I noticed. I was teasing him a bit. And then you.

I wish you weren't in Miami and could come out this weekend and play paintball with the Rams. If you want to send me something (and don't mind paying shipping) I'll see if I can get it signed for you.

That's a google issue and not a "site" issue that changed with a transfer of ownership. John can probably elaborate more.

Funny story about that. They gave me admin powers, and never taught me how to use any of it. I have no idea how to contact anyone who can teach me.

Not that it matters, though. That forum has maybe 10 active posters these days. It's not anything that needs moderation. I'm just the "safety net" of sorts. Too bad I don't actually know howto do anything if things go down.


Anyhow, I'm sure that you can understand why this new company has me skeptical. Hopefully, they'll manage this forum better than the other one.

If it makes you feel any better John and the same names and faces everyone knows are handling the day to day execution of the site, working home page content, etc. Nothing will change there. Which is different from the other site where you really didn't have dedicated POC or as large of a base. The VS folks will collaborate and improve upon content working with people you know. Companies don't spend money to buy a site like this without having resources behind it to ensure continuity and success. You have a significantly more robust staff that's staying put and tens of thousands more users who post daily. These guys bring resources to bear that even DM couldn't in terms of end to end improvements and optimization.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
