I supported the site for 3-4 years. Then some power hungry mods started focusing my b/s/t ads and closing them/finding something wrong and flagging me. this was about 6 years ago at least now. Now, with how little the site is actually managed by mods, there's no way i would ever invest another penny supporting the site. just my experience and opinion, of course.

Had ASM for a couple of years since it was worth bumping and the shiny gold badge looked agg. But now the B/S/T market is so slow or taken over by Trade My Gun I don't really see a point.

Have my patches and the wool lined hoodie, a dodgy shirt and a handful of other knick knacks.. but the site has just lost its edge.

Once it got over modded and everyone was treated like infants, it just wasn't fun anymore. There are better places to dick around.

Well seems to be hardly any moderation as it stands, so I'd argue it's undermoderated. Seeing a lot of noobs post BSTs in non-BST threads or mis-categorizations, etc.

But I do see your point of view when the site was more active. You weren't even allowed to express certain opinions.

Do you get bigger file sizes for pictures if you ASM? Would you also get more room to add pics? If so I'd consider it.

I wish they used ASM money to do something. The problem is Vertical scope uses this site as an ASM and ad revenue stream and do nothing else with it. If they would have been smart and made simple changes back in the mid 2010s this site would still be at the top.

they should have:
-Improved search function
-Allowed direct image upload
-Allowed tagging users in post to notify them
-Removed the cost for manufacturers to have sub forums so that more users came to this site for tech help and questions
-Made BS/T more streamlined with product tagging, price searches, etc.
-Live messenger instead of worthless PM
-Actually continued to support a mobile app.


PBn should have went hard down the BST road. There still isnt a good place to safely do business outside of Ebay for paintball stuff, and even there is pretty poor.

I definitely agree that business outside of eBay is risky for Paintball selling/trading. But I guess the fall back to that on PBNation is that you have a section to post scammers/bad sellers & buyer's.

The only way I'll do business as far as payment on here is PayPal.

screw Paypal.

What happened when you used to do PayPal? I'm guessing there is a story. Worth sharing if you do not mind doing so?

Funny hoody! I always used PayPal for online shopping and haven't had any problems with it whatsoever.

Paypal hates sellers. That being said, never had any issue buying through them.

Do you have any examples? I'm merely asking in case I ever decide to sell something on here.

Its been a while since Ive sold through paypal but i think one of the biggest complaints is that you cant get your money out from them until a set amount of time iirc. It could have changed since. Ive also heard they tend to side with buyers but that's just speculation Ive heard in my circle.

I have had money sent to me via the friends and family portion of PayPal. It took about 48 hours for me or something to get the money to my account. Is that similar to what you're talking about?
