Retention of information on internet is pretty doomed internet is taken over by FB, Youtube, ect other large social media platforms.

There is little retention of data like there was in the 2000s where message boards retained treasure chest of data. I was in various car forums in that era as well, and today i see those forums dying also, some of them going off line, and I'm sad to realize theres huge archives of data of How-To that is now gone.

It's a better format, but it's not as assessable as other platforms.

This news section doesn't need to die, but it sure feels like it is. I still like to visit this for product releases.

The way ppl stay current to pb news is having to follow various teams and company's IG pages. Not their actual website, their IG page. Which is even more absurd. Its not quite a youtube, and not quite a website so its not able to deliver any depth of content, only head lines essentially.

I'm not on IG too often but does PBN have an IG page? Its possible PBN IG can break latest news and funnel to the forum.

My friends that crush it at IG all use IG as first layer of their funnel. Essentially the headline and hook, and funnel to off platform landing page with content and call to action off IG.

I don't think that would make a difference honestly. In this day in age the companies all post stuff themselves. Why would anyone want to see the news from PBN IG rather than PE or Dye themselves. I think this is part of the reason for decline on the website. Information is too easily obtained and sent out to the masses these days. 9.5 times out of 10 I see the news from the companies or players or whoever first before it's posted here.

I just appreciated when I didn't have to visit each company's site to get news. The News forum here was gathering it all for me!

I agree. Seems like instagram is the way to do this now. I don't care to have an instagram account because I don't see the point of it.

Feels weird to be the old man who is missing out on all the new stuff because I fail to adapt, but that's what it is.

I totally agree, but in this day and age most players, especially new, have IG or FB. Forums are a thing of the past for us old folk that have fallen out of the new age. It is also much easier to search YouTube for a tutorial on how to do or fix something than reading through threads trying to get the info needed.

I finally broke down and got an Instagram account about a year ago. Mostly to supplement my woodturning etsy page. There's some pretty good paintball content on there and a lot of girls shaking their *****. Outside of that I'm not sure what it's for.

Unfortunately that is 90% of what IG is. Can't tell you how many "hunting" or "fishing" pages I see that have nothing to actually do with the reality of hunting or fishing

Has anyone tried to use this website on a phone? Holy crap it's horrible l can't get anything to load. The app quit working years ago as well. It's no wonder younger people don't come here anymore; most of them don't even own a PC.

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.
