Normally you'd expect to have increased activity from Mods to lighten the mood and keep conversations moving.  Unfortunately, posts by Mike, Slinky, and Willie are all down and many of the other retired mods are very inactive (Latsabb, Sticktodrum, Kitty, etc.).  Most of the mod posts are from Andrew, Gordon, and TK-421, and they do help keep the community engaged.

 

I don't know if it's all facebook, since facebook is a pain in the ass lately. Part of it is the lull of new equipment after Extravaganza, part of it is PSP choosing not to air their videos for free (so less discussion on them), part of it is the sub-forums dying out (when was the last time you went to a manufacturer's subforum?), part of it is that many players aren't buying the latest and greatest equipment as much as they used to do.  All of that has an impact.  The question we should be asking is whether this is a pause, an ebb, a continuing downward trend, or just noise in the life of the forum.  Individuals get burned out on paintball and they get burned out on forums, too.  When very active individuals stop posting as much then we all notice the decrease in forum activity.

 

I know I've personally been slack about starting new topics - mostly because of being busy at work.  Generally, I find myself just reading the same forum questions over and over and over again because new users are faster to post than search.  It could be the lack of stickied posts that contribute to redundant questions. Again, I don't really know.

 

But I'm still lurking and occasionally posting, and I don't really see that changing any time in the near future.  I hope all of you keep posting stuff that I'll want to comment on, and that will help make the board active.

Most people switched over to PBN or MCB mainly because of the BST. Honestly the BST here sucks now, cause no one uses it anymore. Most of the guys (and gals) who were here regularly just found it easier to stick to other forums. Also, Mike hasn't been nearly involved in the past few years in regards to the forums or the youtube channel, and I think that definitely has had an impact on things. He's been really focused on Markerbids because it makes him money, and lets him spend more time with his family. And I can't blame him for that at all. It's just had a noticeably negative impact on the forum's activity levels in my opinion.

I left because nobody was talking. This is my first post in months and I'm still not seeing many new topics.
I'll occasionally be on here to lurk in hopes that it'll pick up again, but I have my doubts and I too will be gone with the rest of them.

I guess I'm kind of curious as to what would be interesting topics...

 

We all get tired of the same questions in the same sub-forums (Axe or Etek, Rail or eXTCy, etc. Guys?), but what is it that people want to talk about?  Find that topic, and go start writing - see if anyone else wants to talk about it as well.

 

My favorite two topics of all time in the forum were 1) when I pushed up financial and credit dirt on various paintball companies and 2) when Gordon wrote an ode to the blowback marker, or "There's nothing required more than this to have fun on a paintball field".

 

I think sometimes we all get too caught up in the micro-differences of arguing this vs. that and don't ever get enough time to get into the interesting stuff.  So post away, those of you with free time and thousands of posts in archive.

Because people care more about gear then enjoying the comraderie of the players and the game itself.

 

Interesting topics to me include new innovations, new products, new formats, off topic, and scenario discussion.

 

Discussing this vs thats have been done to death.  A simple 5 sec search will return more info than most can imagine but they instead make a new thread and hope to be a unique butterfly with some new unprecedented info.

This is my first post in a topic for a while.

I haven't been as active with paintball recently just because growing up and life got in the way, so paintball is on the backburner. 

 

Its hard for me to justify putting input in a topic, because there isn't much to be said. I still like lurking around and such, but it seems that the large majority of people who posted more thought provoking, or just plain funny topics died out.

I think with funny topics you need to fuel the fire with everyone colaborating. The canadians were really on point with that kind of stuff.

It's not so much the lack of topics but rather the lack of people.
The countless threads that were completely derailed for pages can attest for this. The community just doesn't seem to have that level of commitment anymore.

Do you guys think that paintball needs to be somewhat revitalized? I read a thread recently (not sure if it was here or somewhere else) about the 'Golden Age of Paintball'. This age was about a decade ago... It seems like the sport has been decreasing in popularity (whether it be from the economy or other factors) and the lack of activity on TechPB could be a reflection of this.
