@hurdlebeast

You got me in trouble!!

"Any further infractions will unleash a waving of my mighty BAN HAMMER and someone may get a week or three off of PBF." - Medic

On another note, to make this thread not-so-pointless, could someone explain to me who owns this forum? and / the story behind it? thanks

I'm also ordering one of the 550 for fighters cords for my dog.

and this kid had the same idea as us! -

cobra used to own it, and we were the offical forum of xpaintball.com.

Then xpaintball went down, and we lost users being funneled into it.

then a few years ago, cobra sold out to a new owner, who owns a whole bunch of other websites

ahh thanks. So there's Trbo, Matrix, Azn, Medic dropping the ban hammer, and the everyday noobs that roll in. Tight knit.

Lol it's all good (I warned ya one of the mods would catch us). There hasn't been a good necro war in a while, it was long overdue IMO. But yeah, we need to stop now :P

Yeah this forum has some history. I'm not as active as some of the other guys, but I remember I came in right after the Great Hack, we've had our share of good and bad (LOTHT, Clark Smigman, more forum specific memes and fads (agg, anyone? How about the Hello Kitty Army?), and what used to be a pretty decent rivalry with pbnation. Most of that's gone now, it seems, and all that's left is some of old farts that occasional raise some hell, and all you youngins that we are trying so hard to corrupt :P

But seriously, no more necro rezzes. Medic will destroy us all.

You can't win. Even if you somehow control the banhammer, you can't stop the Duo-bomb. It's an unstoppable force of supernature.

@Martix, I vaguely remember some of those, I think they may have been before my time or during my hiatus (I was absent for about a year on here, I want to say 2007/2008 time period).

Sorry to poop in your cheerios. I am just a grumpy old man who is out of geritol. lol

This forum was a great place back in the day, but the crowd from back in the day has changed, grown up, and moved on. Some of the old group shows up from time to time, but we have always been a forum for the new player, so that's what we get. I stay on for the fact that I enjoy this place.

As for the current ownership, they are just using this forum as a tool to generate more income through advertising, they aren't paintball players or even that interested in paintball. We still remain being in the top 10 paintball related forms in terms of web traffic, but still.

Medic, i feel about the same way. Kinda sad.

there's times i'v considered starting a new forum, just to get out of this ridiculous parent company so hey don't get money from me anymore, but then i look around and see that the nation is superior, and that techpb is just a bunch of mikes fanboys. I dont' have a following(nor should I) to start up a new place.

I would so follow you. It would be cool if we could start up a new forum with all the active guys from here as mods.

I love this place, but seriously, new forum! Who likes purple anyways...
