I'll keep it short and sweet:

Lately, I've been noticing that more and more people are simply posting links to another topic.... or even worse, this picture:

....

When the fuck did TechPB turn into PBNation?



Don't Believe me? Here's What TechPBMike has to say:

If you were to be discussing with a paintball player today regarding TechPB, what would you say to them as the best reason to stop by and visit TechPB?

We are here to help. Our videos are to help, our community is here to help. But once we help you, we need you to help the next person. Too many people in paintball rely on the kindness of others when they need help, then quickly turn into a pompous, all knowing a*****e to the next person who needs help. And people wonder why we cant get this sport off the ground? I've seen this numerous times in forums-

Aggboy18 -Hey guys I need to raise my velocity, which way should I turn my HPR?

Helfulpb21- Turn it to the left

And after someone is kind enough to answer them, 10 minutes later the same exact person.

Woodzpb912 Hey guys, I just purchased a brand new marker, I was wondering which way do I turn the HPR to increase velocity?

Aggboy18- Are you that much of a noob? Didn't you read the stickies? Oh let me guess, you lost your manual too. Didn't you check the companies website? Oh, your internet connection must be down also. Why don't you look 3 threads down, and do a little research before coming in here and posting this. Gtfo noob!

Its amazing how a little bit of information can turn someone into the biggest a*****e on the planet. I don't understand it, but its why our shows are the most watched, highest rates, most discussed and most followed paintball videos in this sports history. You can roll the dice in your favorite forums, or watch one of my shows. Considering we are pulling over a million video views per month, I think people like the option of watching a show over reading forums.

How about we get back to our roots, stop bitching and moaning because someone asked the same question twice, and just help the person....

I must admit, I have gotten a little snappy when somebody post's a topic when another topic on the same subject was posted 10 minutes earlier, though.

I completely agree.

The only thing that Annoy's me is when someone post another FX VS AXE VS ETEK3 thread, when there are already 5 on the same page.


Or the rarer questions like: I don't know what gun to get. what gun should i get.

I think it's pretty pointless for someone to make an identical thread when their question is already at the top of the page in a different thread. I'll still answer, but it's really stupid to remake a thread when your question is OBVIOUSLY already posted.

That being said, pointless posts are still pointless.

Because that's what we had when I was a kid
Dirt.
And the internet, but dirt was cheaper.

If they're topic is difficult to answer (or would require a lengthy response), I try to give them the basics then link them to a sticky.
Afterall, that thread was sticky'ed for a reason and chances are, could provide more help to the person than my answer would be.

I try my best not to spam (unless I'm in the off-topic section :D), and I also avoid repetitive threads (ie DP FX vs Etek3).

I may get a bit argumentative at times, but I always explain myself and try to be as helpful as possible.

I come here to help, not to spam and look cool (unless I'm in off-topic, as stated before).

And now here's some sexy robots.

i think that when it comes to people with actual questions we are still very good at answering their question. And answering it fast.


every website has those asshats that flame the newbs, but as orange would say they dont last long here.



i dont see a problem with posting a link either.

But usually threads with that picture arent in need of help. And usually people post that when there are multiple of that thread on page 2 or sometimes even page 1.
When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave everybody wondering how the fuck you did it.
