I have been thinking for a long time that it would be nice to get the regulars on the forums together on a facebook group. It seems like everyone on facebook now a days. It would be a good way to help get other members to get to know you outside of the very limited scope of paintball. Face it there is a lot more to your average baller than paintball. It would be a good way to help build the community, communicate better and maybe put a face to the username. Humanize the whole experience. Let people know just who they are dealing with on here. I can understand if some people are completely against it some might be all for it.

I for one would be willing to set up the group and work as an admin on the page. I would gladly do my time to keep things running smoothly. Upload interesting and prevalent links to paintball specific "media" and keep things fresh and interesting.

I know mike has his personal page but my idea is slightly different. If I am out stepping my bounds here I understand, an actual forum moderator might be better suited to the task but I for one am more than willing to try my best and put in the work to make it a success. I hope it will not so much detract from the forum as much as it will help us the members find a way to interact outside the limited scope of what we do on here.

I believe the best part of paintball is actually getting to know the guys at the field when you go play. I have made a lot of lasting friendships through the sport and maybe just maybe this page will help us make a few more bonds from our fellow forum members.

I will make it a closed group. To request entry you would have to PM myself or whoever would act as a moderator on here with your name and once I confirm you are a techpb member you will be added?

It seems like a lot of work and the reward well thats yet to be seen. It has a lot of potential if done right and I would like the chance. What do you guys think?

Please, let me know your username on the forum when you add me or request entry thanks! Im also going to look into potentially getting one or two more people to help admin the page.

Nothing wrong with lurking, if you don't feel like supplying any input on the topics you see you aren't obligated to. Usually I do that when I have no clue what is being discussed so I can learn something.
