I only get on every few days if ever now. Honestly it was all downhill after the TCCC and OG clubs got banned, and all the crap that went with it. Oh well, I'll always remember the 40+ page threads in 24 hours of gifs and the 500 page ans gear giveaway thread. A lot of the OG core members just have either left, or have been banned. Honestly even PBN isnt THAT active. BST yes, but other parts arent super crazy active. I mean I've had an account since 09 and have always at least lurked until the past 6 months or so, when it's just gotten really slow. Hell I only went paintballing for the first time in like 5 months last Saturday. TechPB had a relatively young userbase and people just get tied up with different priorities as time goes on I think.

its just forums in general

 

Everyone is on Facebook. When we launched in 2008, Facebook was still pretty quiet. A year later, the iphone came out, and by 2011 more and more people were using Facebook instead of forums.

 

The site is here for you guys, not for us. If you want to use it, it's here. If you don't, it's still here.

 

We're going to continue to shave it down, consolidate it, and reduce it down dramatically to try to liven it up a little.

 

But, think about your day - how much time you spend on Facebook? And how much time do you spend on forums? Now you have your answer to your question :-)

Being perfectly honest I spend 0 minutes of my day on facebook, and probably about 45-60 minutes browsing forums. Mostly this one. Then again, I don't have facebook.

Seems like there has been more activity since this thread was posted. Wonder if it's out of pure spite....

The servers crashing is what killed my lurking. Never really recovered from it. Who knows it might just flare up again though. I've seen forums do some weird shit in the past.

I stopped playing paintball in 2010 due to life and haven't gotten back in to it. I check the forums once in a while but I have no real reason to post. 6 years ago when TechPB launched I was playing paintball and one of the first people to sign up, now I'm a video editor. Not a whole lot of overlap unless I'm editing a video about paintball which believe it or not, isn't a huge demand. So I really have nothing more to contribute to the site. Last time I could answer a this vs that question it was ego8 v BL vice.

 

Glad to say at least that I got to fully participate when TechPB was booming

It's all about the game and how you play it, All about control and if you can take it
All about your debt and if you can pay it, It's all about pain and who's gonna make it

Paintball has been slow for me. I don't have any friends to play with anymore. My closest friend that I used to play with just gave up because he got tired of spending his money on it. My nearest field is an hour drive and my parents don't exactly drive me whenever I want to play. No one in my town will hire you for a job until you're 18 so that means it will be 4 years until I can really get a half steady income. I finally scraped some money together a while back to buy some new gear and I have used it all once. I haven't played in months. I might, and at this point its looking kind of slim, get to play on labor day. I have to get my parents to drive me an hour to get paint and a tank fill because central PA has no paintball shops. At this point, I have seriously considered selling my gear and forgetting I ever played paintball. I kinda thought about downgrading to a cheap pump to save paint but its not what i want to do. I could really use that money to build a new rifle though. I guess it just sucks to be a teen anymore. Especially one that loves to play the most expensive sport on the planet.

I am so spoiled when it comes to paintball in general. I have a dozen fields within an hours or so drive from me the best proshop in New England 15 minutes away... I have more friends that play paintball than friends who dont and well the forums still have hope. I left a lot of FB groups because so many people are idiots on there. They are more easily accessed so you have a lot of morons posting stupidity on them.
