Weird. He even spells it the correct way.

That's a great point. In alot of ways this forum has functioned has a free tech support for Tippmann over the years...

I think it's really more tongue-in-cheek about the forum going away. But jebus did we get some seriously high volume when we started the chat group! Mispelled, styrofloam, cat, Rockslide, and many, many more we haven't seen for a while all jumped right in. Fast conversation too, reminded me of the old days when topics would drop off the front page in a matter of minutes some days.

Even when I started becoming an active member, the first two whole pages, and often onto the third were active topics.

Makes you wonder what happened. I wouldn't expect a company like Tippmann to suddenly lose all that newb traffic. Maybe people just search the forum get what they need and leave.

This is a good point as well;  I didn't even consider the advantages the forum provides in the way of tech support.  There are people here who can answer questions on Tippmann markers that most of the current Tippmann employees might never have actually even seen.

Related to the above post:
  • I don't facebook.  Not because of not understanding "that dang new-fangled facebook thingy" but because of the risks involved in using facebook.  I read an article a while back that indicated facebook could be responsible for as much as 70% of the spreading of current computer viruses.*
  • I've seen farmville; my wife was hooked on it for a while.  It is another reason not to facebook.


*  All age jokes aside, one of my minors is in Computer Information Systems, and given my background in USAF security I try to stay abreast of most aspects of computer security. ** I am by no means an "IT guy" but I do most of the upkeep/maintenace and software/hardware repairs and networking for the extended family.  It's not something I enjoy all that much or would want to do for a living but I thought I should learn about it when my son was headed off to the Navy and wouldn't be around to fix my computers anymore.

**Security is essentially the same be it info security, IT security or physical security.  There is no such thing as completely secure unless one is willing to accept measures which would render the item/info being secured practically useless even to those who are authorized to use it.  What you can do is create a level of difficulty that deters possible perpetrators from coming after your stuff and causes them to seek easier targets instead.  That said, all security at an individual level is still a trade off between function and comfort level.  I.e. how much functionality you are willing to give up to reach your comfort level security-wise.  I am willing to forgo social networking to keep myself more secure.***

***Detrevni, this post contained asterisks . . . are you happy now?

Internet security.




Kidding, of course, Mack. I haven't learned anything new about computers in at least 4 years.

I think PBN, MCB, 98OG etc all scooped up the people who used to come here. Plus, you can google just about any problem with any marker these days and get a link to a thread with the answer without even having to sign up or ask the question anymore.

I dunno. The Warhammer forums shut down pretty quick when they decided to not support them any more. They could make most of the claims this forum can make as well. They were informative, supportive and spreading the love, but they still got the axe.

Companies/orgs don't like to leave non-officially-administrated forums up for liability reasons.
