what exactly have we done to get a "bad name?" i keep hearing this, quite a lot as of late, and i fail to understand what bad name has been given to paintballchat.

so some people in the channel act immature, not my fault, not everyone deals well with authority(oh my, where might we have seen this lately?) and surely your judgement should not be skewed by one bad apple. hades speaks of pbc being such an unfriendly place all the time but he hasn't visited us in quite some time. how would he know if things changed eh?

so please, come forth and lay it out in the open, what has given the channel a bad name?

you act as if you're one of the more caring and dignified chat members

we've sorta had a history of pranking, screwing with newcomers to chat, banning less popular members for almost no reason, and "you're not the boss of me" attitudes

other than that, harmless.

I will agree with koolit.

But what is so wrong with a little fun? I mean, no we should not have the high and mighty additude I have seen sometimes but other than that its all in good fun. I kicked 2 people last night just joking around, and I got kicked back once. If that offends you, you need to realize that there is such a thing as just having fun.

My currently my dislike for PBC is the "come join us in Chat thread." For those that do try and log in they are forced out either because some Op can ban them or they are /quit out for the ammusement of the channel. This is evidenced by chat loggs posted on this forum.
Also it seems that some of the frequenters, post only on this forum to harass other members, make inflamatory post, and egg each others behavior on. Also some claim they dont care, but then if something happens to their account, a thread is closed, all hell breaks lose.

I also dislike that schemes are plotted, egged on in chat, and them carried out on here. I then have to waste my time modding the behavior. When the modding takes place, half the channel will log into make a scene to defend the person that had mod activity taken against them and proclaim innocence. I am not talking about this weeks action. What goes on in Chat is none of my business but when the activities transfers over to this forum, it becomes everyone's business. Behave however you want in chat but, how about acting in a respectable manner on this forum. Is that really that hard to ask?

Again for the most part I respect and find most of the members of chat ammusing. I have taken place in many fun times with PBC, but unforunately there have been some sour times. And again the members of chat that normally act in a respectable manner, get the short end of the stick.

Haha, Panda man there are times when the channel does behave in that manner.

***This post only applies to members in chat that fit this bill. AKA the bad apples.***

Not your fault?! You are one of the worst offenders!

I swear, I think you are bi-polar or something! You are a liar and pathetic geek to boot.....I remember when you would bug me through PM's when you barely started on this site, trying to get my email and be my friend....then you hook up with a bunch of other geeks and start acting like you are some sort of powerful member of this board.....and of all people you picked me to mess with....what a mistake.

I hate to say it, but you have a lot of learning to do. Your social skills are completely lacking, and it's no wonder your only friends exist on the internet!

Make no mistake about it, be a man, and fess up to your actions! You have acted like a butthole for a long time now, and it's time to reap what you sow, you malicious low-life dork. You are only now paying for what you've owed for a long time now, take your lumps like a man and know that you deserved it.

Maybe I can respect you once you accept what is coming to you, and deal with it like something other than a whiny female dog.

I venture into chat whenever I have the time, same with the forum. True. There are quite a few pranks pulled on newbs in the channel. Most of them were pulled on me when I first joined up as well. Hell, if it weren't for the pranks I still wouldn't know that /quit would log me out of the channel. So I looked at it as a learning experience. The only real problem I notice with PBC is that pretty much everyone in the channel is an op (including myself on occasion) and not everyone in the channel deserves it. Naturally, there will be problems with the undeserving, irresponsible members. If that stops then alot of the anti-newbness would stop too. But then we would lose some of the hilarity... anyway, its not for me to decide PBC's fate.

For me, PBC and the forum are places i go to to kill some time, talk with friends, and read about new and interesting "facts." I come here for my own enjoyment and I avoid situations that have the slightest chance of killing that. If the forum or PBC stops being fun then I will quit coming. It's happened before, it'll proabablly happen again.

To the newbs reading this:
There are people in this world who will not like you immediately... or ever for that matter. Its the same with me and every other member of this place. Why worry what they think? No need to impress them. Just follow the rules that are in place and enjoy your stay, however long it may be.

I drop in chat every once inawhile out of boredom and the funny ass links.  I also had to run the gauntlet though a couple years ago the first time I logged on, and I thought it was rather pathetic. Other than that, meh.
