pbnation news and splash page

yes there is kinda a place for this at the very bottom where no one ever sees it.

who looks after this stuff, should there be some new people allowed in to the cool kids club? the splash page still has a impact win from 2 moths ago and heat never even got one.

id like to see some future plans from VS and the direction it wants to go. like a VS news sticky that has a gannt chart laying out the plans to us.

Don't mind that guy. He can take the time to criticize everyone that posts about the sport, but somehow retains his coolness in his own mind for doing literally the same thing. Maybe it's logical to him because he only has 1 sentence posts?

Yea I do check here almost everyday and it's kinda disappointing to see what has come of the site. No maintenance and this site will go by the wayside to social media and I have not done the whole social media thing in quite sometime so I hope someone steps in and takes care of the site

I miss the old days. I recently got back into the sport so I check the site about everyday now but it is a far, far cry from the site that I left.

Same.


Perhaps this format of forum is just old and outdated, but I much prefer this over any other form of social media.

That's what happens when you stop paying the one guy who is steering the boat.

To be fair, the industry as a whole doesn't have enough going on to justify paying anyone to run this site. It's a shell of it's former self.

Its funny because my sales rep's at Valken and GI both tell me paint sales have never been higher and production cant keep up.

So this would mean there are more people playing rec ball than ever too. The big companies are making more money than ever and your right there is no mass marketing out side of the regular paintball channels.

Every time I go play or drive by my local field it's been packed the last two summers. Paintball is doing just fine.

Online forums are dying thanks to FB/Twitter/Reddit.

But not even trying to maintain a website such as this does not bode well for keeping "the largest source of paintball" alive.

I think the B/S/T section has suffers due to Facebook marketplace. I don't have Facebook but as I understand it's active with paintball marker sales.

In my opinion the B/S/T pages on Facebook are the only value it brings to anything. If it wasn't for that I'd have left a long time ago.

Yes, the rest is mostly a dumpster fire. But like you said, the UI for posting, buying and selling is so much better than here.

FB is trash for discussion though. People are god awful trolls on facebook. Trying to load comments for readability is trash.

FB is great for BST, that's about it.

The reddit is OK for discussion but it's harder to find "tech" advice. I love PBN, I just don't think it alone can survive. If there was PBN and like PBN Discord or something or some other wider accessible version of PBN great.

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.
