Lately, I've been seeing this bullshit trend of topic going up in different sections of the forum, to the effect of-

"I'm getting pretty sick and tired of people asking the same things over and over again in the forums"

or-

"I'm getting pretty sick of people asking the same questions on the radio show"


I get asked the same questions, over and over again. I can't even count how many times I've gotten asked "What's a good tank?", "What kind of loader do you recommend?", "What should I buy for $300?", "What kind of mask should I get?". Two years and tens of thousands of questions later, I'm still NOT sick of answering these same core questions, over and over again. I'll answer them till the day I die, and not even think twice


TechPB is not a "sticky" forum. I said this when TechPB launched, and I will say it again. I only want TWO types of people on my forum-

People who are here to answer questions
People who are here to ask questions


PBNation has 1500 people on their site right now, 500 are in the off topic, 500 are in the BST, and the last 500 are salivating over the chance to tell someone "Read the fucking stickies already!! Did you not read the fucking stickies? That's why it's a STICKY! Everything you need to know, is in the fucking stickies!!!!!!"

We are not that forum. We engage in dialogue. We communicate with each other, we talk to each other, as we would talk to each other on the street or at the field. When someone asks you question at the field, do you tell them "I'm sick and tired of the same questions over and over again, why don't you turn on a fucking computer and a read a sticky already?"

No, you answer them politely. So what's with the fucking attitude on the forums?

I have declared OPEN SEASON on anyone projecting this type of bullshit, elitist attitude on my forum. If you project this attitude, you will not get a warning, you will get a MINIMUM 7 day ban from TechPB.

Oh, did I also mention that this will add 30% to your warning level? So if you decide you want to do it twice, immediate IP ban. I don't give a shit if you are sitting on 7000+ posts and a player's club member.

And a BETTER incentive for you. If anyone here reads someone with this kind of attitude, I encourage you to hit the "report" button. If your tip leads to the banning of one of these assholes with this kind of attitude, I'll send you out a TechPB sticker strip for free. So if you catch one of these "read the damn sticky" assholes on my forum, you could win yourself a free strip of TechPB stickers!

If you catch a Player's Club member doing it, you'll get an even BETTER prize, like a Sandana, or headband, or barrel sock!


It is OPEN SEASON on this kind of attitude, I've got my ACP Panel open, let's see who is first out of the door, MUhahahhhahahahahaha

I wonder if this is gonna get stickied, and then some foolish poster says "Don't say 'read the damn sticky' because the sticky says so! Read the damn sticky!"

PS- if you are getting annoyed, use one of the greatest tools ever: copy/paste. Whenever I answer a question more than once, all I have to do is find my original answer and copy/paste it. It's extremely simple and it means you can give more detailed answers without "wasting time."

Maybe start a Occupy Windhelm movement. Start piling up items outside the doors of the house. Those Occupy movements totally changed how banking and society interact so I'm sure it will work for you.

A few questions:

1) If I make an offending post, then report myself, do I get the prizes?

2) You say "free" vacation. Is this free in terms of my paying? If I didn't have to pay union dues for a paid vacation, that would be great. I'm running out of sick days at work.

3) Does this elitist attitude only apply to paintball questions? I'd like to maintain the ability to critique people in other areas.

4) Does posting a link directly to said sticky thread count as good help?

5) Should all of the stickies be removed as a result of this hunting season?

6) Is this hunting season legal in New York State? I've been having trouble getting licenses.

I think this is a good idea. I like helping people and so should other people. I have no problem with answering the same question over and over again. If I can help the person then I'm happy. It's all about setting a great atmosphere for the new players.

Tons of people repost the same questions, and its because not everyone can search the whole forum to find the answer from the past question. Thats why there is an entire forum devoted to the best 300 dollar gun. (Btw thats the mini)

What if someone asks a question and there is another thread somewhere that explains the said question very clearly and you just give the person a link to that instead of retypeing or copy and pasting the whole thing over? oh and not do it with attitude? does that count?

I can see a good 2 suspensions coming out of idiots to come on this thread. Joking around when you don't make yourself clear is a very BAD thing to do. Do we get stuff if we report psots that were made before this rule was in place?

i'd always thought it's good to be asked the same question over and over again to check for consistency. plus with debate we can always learn something...i start topics that were probably asked before and well i get the least amount of people answering me but i would assume that topic was recently posted and i got the conclusion of all the debates lol

Here's the plan: YOu post something like that, I report you, and since you are a PC member, I'll get stickerz and a sandana ec. I keep the etc and I'll give you the Sickers. Minus one or 2

That's why they have a IP board. They can detect that both the account are registered to you (your IP).

Sounds very good

I got really tired of the lack of help and complaining on nation, thats one of the reasons I use this forum.

Things to remember:
- Always keep an open mind towards new players: because they are the future of our great sport

- Its like helping the new players on the field, if you talk to them and try to teach them some tricks and skills, then they will look up to you, and you could get a new contact/friend in that person.

- First; if you get a bit tired of always answering the same question, then you could make a document on your own computer with your answers to those questions, then you can just copy-paste your answers into the forum thread.

- Secondly if you are tired of the questions, then dont answer, cause someone will probably have the patience/surplus to answer them then.
