View Full Version : I gotta say this because I haven't in a while

Well, I just came back from PBN where I read ALL 59 pages of the Techpb vs PBN thread (yeah, I was looking for some glimmer of sanity but I ended up being disappointed...), and the more I read, the more I realized just how good it is over here at good ol' SOC. I know sometimes we take this place for granted because of the lower membership and less posting than in previous years, but I gotta say that I'm so glad that we have this nice, clean, safe forum over here that we can all be friendly to each other. Shoot, even our "hate" threads are nothing more than kitten fights compared to some of the other forums out there!

I mean, seriously, 2 pages of possibly good posts and 57 pages of flames and hatred spawned over this one person and his annoyance at another forum, leading to the battle between Tech minions and Nation minions - and they ALL are doing the exact same thing, haha!

NOTE: I'm definitely NOT trying to spark a debate about Techpb and PBN - we all have our own feelings about this topic and in fact, let's not go there because it'll ruin this good feeling I have at the moment. K?

I just wanted to say that you guys are great and that is the BEST forums I've yet found, and honestly, I've found several good ones out there. So, take a bow because you guys deserve it!

Long live SOC! :flowerred:

come on, were you just waiting to turn this into a Techpb thread? That's NOT what this thread was made for. You're just asking for this to go "South" pardon the pun.

Haha, funny how it can't even last more than 8 minutes here, Bryce! :roflmao:

I agree, this is by far the BEST forum I have EVER come across, and that's saying something. I'm always browsing other forums from all over the world (translators ftw), and all of them have issues with idiots. Thanks to the moderating staff and certain veteran members we have here (you all know who you are!), we have one of the cleanest, open minded, paintball forum in the WORLD. :D

I'm at pbn for things I want sold/answered fast. I hate 98% of the people on pbn.


My thoughts on techpb is that he does bring out some valid paints but he needs to stop the flaming. He makes good reviews and other how to videos but his other videos are all pointless.

i hang out in the new Kingman OT, and put in my advice/help/two cents in Kingman threads. i check b/s/t if i'm looking for something, and have only been to ST and OSST twice, when i was really bored. almost got in a fight over who was better: randy rhoads or eddy van halen, so i left before i went off on the guy.

I have to admit. I have to truly thank my staff members here. The mods do a bang up job keeping this place clean and a healthy environment. I also must thank the membership for also doing the same. If we could only pass this type of attitude on to other forums paintball would be a lot better off. Thanks all.

Yea these are by far the greatest forums ive been on. Ive never been flamed once and everybody is super helpfull. Thanks to all the mods for being so god at what they do and all the memers for being helpfull and relaxed.

my bro joined Pbn and i came here since I bought a spyder.Am I glad that i didnt create an account there.

You're a more than welcome addition here, StankWeed! We don't have very many foreign paintballers come around here, and it's very interesting to at least me (I'm sure there are others) to see how the sport is doing elsewhere, and to help it expand as best I can! :)

Dre, you're welcome. :D

This is deffinatly a great webpage with alot of great minds. Ranks right up there with the best of them. Out side of this page I would have to say the Empire is a great page as well, but only for woodsball milsim paintballers. So I think for the all around win SOC has my vote.

Then you shouldn't look in the posts in the back room. The newest mod enjoys Otters thongs way too much and the way he treats them tells me that he misses him way more than everyone else does. :D

You know, that's the first time I've EVER said anything like that. And even though I knew it, Dan knew it (or will when he sees it) and all you knew it was a joke, it still felt VERY uncomfortable to me. I was hoping the dodgy would be enough but it still feels weird!

I think that's why this place is pretty great - not only did I say something that is offensive somewhere else, but it turns out to be an uncomfortable joke (to me, at least!) but everyone still knows it's not serious!

Guys, I have an account here, and an account on the nation, and I really believe that it's going downhill except in some of the gun forums. SOC isn't as high up as the nation, but hopefully it'll get pretty big, just hopefuly not as bad.

I'm IGOTAEVO and UNCLEFESTER there FYI ;)

I agree. I hate when people want to argue on PbN just for fun. I avoid that at all costs. I find that usually if you just speak in an educated manner, it somehow confuses the trolls and they can't argue with you. Odd.

Oh, and TechPb, yeah, some of his ideas are good, but the guy needs to change his attitude a bit and act as somebody who is the role model/mentor/veteran should. Good ideas can often get lost when the man speaking them sounds like an a****le.

on pbn, i have to admit i frequent the ST sections... there's not much worth reading in there, but every once in a while, you'll find a good thread. usually in one of the ST subsections. if i need some help with something paintball related, i'll venture away from ST, and there's tons of people who actually know what they're talking about. i like the community of SOC a lot better, though, and this is definitely one of the best forums i've been on.
