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....
