It sounds sketchy, why would you drive traffic away from Tech PB? The site is hurting enough as it is.

Considering slinky is a root admin I'm inclined to believe that this site is legit, and drive who away? There is basically no traffic to begin with.

If they're promoting other sites are they giving up on this one? It's because he's an admin that I think it's odd.

Slinky's experimenting, we're still behind TechPB 79% The other 21% is spent drinking and going for the worst mods awards.

Not at all. For many, BST is shifting away from forums. Not just here but every forum regardless of subject. Swap Barrel is simply another site with a different format to try and attract those that want the craiglist BST style for paintball: no discussions by staff, bumping, checking the ad, logging in to read messages, etc.; just publish and forget until you get an email, text or phone call from a buyer.

 

TechPB has very specifics rules on how it conducts BST (remember it took awhile to even get a BST), and those rules just can't work on the SB style.  As Andrew said .... it's an experiment on a new way for PB BST. For now we have TechPB as a sponsor.
