You could always just give a mod your login info and let them look at the PMs for themselves. Mods are trustworthy.

In Topic: The brutal arrogance from our favorite paintball politician

10 July 2009 - 06:20 PM

Wow, the arrogance is so strong, you can smell it before it enters the room.

So let's explain what's going on here.....

There is an email Ed Rieker is bouncing around the industry in an attempt to starve off the financial support of all the other paintball websites, paintball television shows, as well as online and print paintball magazines

He takes direct aim at MCarterBrown, Splat Magazine, PaintballX3, PaintballSportsMag, the list goes on and on

I can't speak for other websites, but here are a couple things to consider in regards to his "skewed" information about TechPB-

1) The TechPB Youtube Channel gets 5 times the amount of traffic our website gets. This "PBNation Comparison" Ed is sending out, doesn't take this into consideration

2) The "PBNation Comparison" goes back to June of last year, until today. TechPB didn't launch until the end of September, beginning of October. We didn't install Analytics until well after this. Why would he "average" our site traffic, when we didn't have a website during those months?

3) Also, the "PBNation Report" doesn't consider our chat room(s), as well as TechPB Radio, which has pulled over 60,000 unique people so far this year, as many as 2000 people per night we're on the air.

4) Most of his stats start 06/13/2008, we didn't launch till almost 4 months later

5) 40% of PBNation's website traffic is off topic


Those don't even matter since hes lookinga t getting advertisers, and he cant get advertisers for a chat room or a youtube video. only place he can advertise is on the site so these statistics do not matter.

Now, not only do they have to pay for the broken glass and such, they also have to recover the loss from the guns they did sell, yet paid for. Hopefully they don't go out of business.

In Topic: Ten Million Video Views on the TechPB Youtube Channel

18 June 2009 - 12:30 PM

A couple things.

1) The views are grossly disproportionate to the number of people who have actually watched them. I've watched many over and over again, and each time I do, it adds another view. Same goes for the forum hits. Every time someone goes on the site it adds another hit.

2) Where are you getting the figure for Radio listeners?? AT MOST, we have 300 on average, with only that guillie suit show going up to about 500 for 1 show.

3) You can't have a list with just 1 and 2, so I threw in 3.
