You won't see MO or BDazl on here at all, since they were essentially barred after MO left to make his own company. I believe they frequent techpb now, but I could be wrong.

Oh and I can resit.
Well; A hole in the ground.
A mighty deep subject for such a shallow minded person.

All the "vets" are busy working, going to school, or prefer to hang out on other sites.
A few of us are left....But I think at this point we've run out of stuff to say....

Let's see here....
1. Economy. Without money, people can't play as much. And then they end up losing interest talking about it when they can't play (big exception to IKE, who managed to survive 2 years without playing and still hung out here)
2. State of Paintball as a Whole. Paintball's on the decline right now, for whatever reason you want to believe. Some people have gone to the extreme that it is "dying" and others are of the mind it's a cycle. For whatever the reason, there are less people playing paintball independent of the economic factor.
3. Life. A lot of us have gotten older (obviously) and are consumed by stuff we "have" to do rather than "want" to do. I'm still on the younger curve at 25, but I know I have a lot less free time and money.
4. The Purchase of SO and Resulting Events. You missed some recent drama originating with SO being purchased. Following that, Moati left the company for reasons that have been stated by him on several forums which I won't repeat at this time aside from saying I certainly have his back and understand his points. Their were some other things said here and there between old and new owners, as well as their biggest supporters.
All of these things, and probably a lot more, contributed.
Of course, there are some of us still hanging around. Just not nearly as many.

Yeah, I took a long break from here because it just got stagnant, their wasn't any new threads, people were leaving, spam started showing up....the site just began to break down but Im glad to see that people are still on here and that a lot of the vets are on here as well!
Its nice to see some familiar faces on here
