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.
I recognize your username. I am happy to help you out with anything you need on the other forum. I will look at the site tomorrow and see what I can do to help.

Also what's going to happen to their "paintballforum.com" property? I've never heard of that website. Pbnation has 10 times the number of users and 24 times the number of current users at the time of this posting.

one thing I hate is when using the website on a phone/mobile device when you click a dialogue box to type something, the keyboard repeatedly disappears causing you to click random things if typing fast

anyone else have this issue?

A online calendar that promotes paintball events both nationally and regionally.

Event promoters can post event dates for players to see in there respected region. Event promoters can use this tool to avoid conflicting dates. This tool would let Players know where to play, what weekend and who to talk too.

The system could integrate into a larger national calendar, even global. PBN is the largest paintball forum online, use this advantage to help promote the sport, keep everyone organized and generate traffic to the site.

posting pictures here is no different than any other forum that I have used. In what way would you make it easier?

I'll remain optimistic until I see otherwise. This can be a great opportunity for an enhanced site that we already love. And since you asked for feedback (and the troubleshooting area gets 0 attention)......

Mobile app support X1000! It's the future, it's the now, and it needs help. I paid for the iOS app and loved it, until my Pm's stopped getting a notification. For someone who bst's a lot that's a big let down. Plus the users should be easily and readily connected.

Also, about a year ago Facebook bst blew up. I couldn't figure out why at first because it lacked the feedback that in my opinion was critical to making good deals on high end equipment on PBN. Then it hit me, Facebook bst is visual. Make the bst like shopping in a store, have them click for more details. Boom, you can get a lot of your bst activity back(cuz I know you've lost a ton of it). And yes, it's gotta be easier to post photos.

Paintball needs a great website to keep us connected. To the new owners, make sure you are responsible for making this website THE place to go for paintball players everywhere.

My 2 cents.

They are going to keep it. Despite the small amount of posters, they're still making money from it. Several people were interested in buying it, but they weren't interested in selling.

Before it was bought by VS it had a decent amount of traffic. But they have done nothing with the site for several years until the past few months when they added a "sponsors" forum.

Thank you for the sig love. No clue when I said that but I am not surprised and I'm sure it was warranted.

I have not been with VS since the very start but I have been here a while. I have worked on and off with PBF and as long as I have been on there it has not been as busy as was described in the past. It does have a good core group of followers and hopefully it will continue to grow.

My focus right this moment is working with you all on here. I am in contact with the admin on PBF as well.

Don't change anything...I like the feedback system and everything just the way it is. Only concern now is what about my existing subscriptions to bst legit and asm status??? Because they were linked to crowd gather? What should we do about that or is it already transferred over?

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.
