How to get a free 1 week vacation from TechPB
Posted 05 February 2010 - 11:06 AM
"I'm getting pretty sick and tired of people asking the same things over and over again in the forums"
"I'm getting pretty sick of people asking the same questions on the radio show"
I get asked the same questions, over and over again. I can't even count how many times I've gotten asked "What's a good tank?", "What kind of loader do you recommend?", "What should I buy for $300?", "What kind of mask should I get?". Two years and tens of thousands of questions later, I'm still NOT sick of answering these same core questions, over and over again. I'll answer them till the day I die, and not even think twice
TechPB is not a "sticky" forum. I said this when TechPB launched, and I will say it again. I only want TWO types of people on my forum-
People who are here to answer questions
People who are here to ask questions
PBNation has 1500 people on their site right now, 500 are in the off topic, 500 are in the BST, and the last 500 are salivating over the chance to tell someone "Read the fucking stickies already!! Did you not read the fucking stickies? That's why it's a STICKY! Everything you need to know, is in the fucking stickies!!!!!!"
We are not that forum. We engage in dialogue. We communicate with each other, we talk to each other, as we would talk to each other on the street or at the field. When someone asks you question at the field, do you tell them "I'm sick and tired of the same questions over and over again, why don't you turn on a fucking computer and a read a sticky already?"
No, you answer them politely. So what's with the fucking attitude on the forums?
I have declared OPEN SEASON on anyone projecting this type of bullshit, elitist attitude on my forum. If you project this attitude, you will not get a warning, you will get a MINIMUM 7 day ban from TechPB.
Oh, did I also mention that this will add 30% to your warning level? So if you decide you want to do it twice, immediate IP ban. I don't give a shit if you are sitting on 7000+ posts and a player's club member.
And a BETTER incentive for you. If anyone here reads someone with this kind of attitude, I encourage you to hit the "report" button. If your tip leads to the banning of one of these assholes with this kind of attitude, I'll send you out a TechPB sticker strip for free. So if you catch one of these "read the damn sticky" assholes on my forum, you could win yourself a free strip of TechPB stickers!
If you catch a Player's Club member doing it, you'll get an even BETTER prize, like a Sandana, or headband, or barrel sock!
It is OPEN SEASON on this kind of attitude, I've got my ACP Panel open, let's see who is first out of the door, MUhahahhhahahahahaha

PS- if you are getting annoyed, use one of the greatest tools ever: copy/paste. Whenever I answer a question more than once, all I have to do is find my original answer and copy/paste it. It's extremely simple and it means you can give more detailed answers without "wasting time."

1) If I make an offending post, then report myself, do I get the prizes?
2) You say "free" vacation. Is this free in terms of my paying? If I didn't have to pay union dues for a paid vacation, that would be great. I'm running out of sick days at work.
3) Does this elitist attitude only apply to paintball questions? I'd like to maintain the ability to critique people in other areas.
4) Does posting a link directly to said sticky thread count as good help?
5) Should all of the stickies be removed as a result of this hunting season?
6) Is this hunting season legal in New York State? I've been having trouble getting licenses.

I think this is a good idea. I like helping people and so should other people. I have no problem with answering the same question over and over again. If I can help the person then I'm happy. It's all about setting a great atmosphere for the new players.
