Hello? Is anybody there?

Just seeing if the lights still work in this joint.



It seems as if most of all discussions are taking place on the Facebook page rather than here, and that has been for quite a while. That's not a problem at all, as adaptation is key to survival, it's just sad to see the good ol' days of AO fade away.

God bless our community, and best wishes to everyone.

It does kinda suck that I come in every three or four days and there's no more than 3 posts that aren't WTS/WTT posts...Because I don't have facebook, I miss out on a lot of stuff, but i'm not gonna get it just for AO. I wish more people would cross post from FB to AO. But it is what it is I guess.

I also don't use Facebook, I know I miss out on a lot of AO discussions. Oh well though, I guess when these forums "die" I will not know what's going on haha.

It was inevitable though.

I am still here too. think positive guys. Maybe this whole facebook phase will weed out the AO trolls and maybe one day, we will get back to high quality threads and posts and then, AO will flourish once more

Hello, comrades.

I've never been one of the "more important" AO people but I'm still here if that says anything.

I do check in here weekly to see what's up!

I've only been registered with AO since about 2012? I've always wondered, has this always been the theme to AO forums or has there been previous designs?

I still check in regularly. I do prefer this format to the Facebook format, due to the superior organization possible here.

I'm here. I'm pretty new to the forum and to actually getting out and playing. I mostly keep an eye on WTS and the events page. I hate facebook because it's a ton of drama and bullcrap that I don't need in my life, I much prefer a forum like this one.

I don't know that it's worth posting a thread about, but did you guys see that Airsoft Smith is closing down? I stopped up there today, it's pretty empty.

I think that there should be a huge thriving market in Columbus for them, I have no idea what the problem may have been. I hope we get somebody to fill the void, I appreciated being able to go there and check stuff out in person. I got my Krytac from them as well as a bunch of tac gear. I'd also love to see more interactive stuff going on if we get a new store around here. I dunno, it's just kind of a bummer.

I'm still here. AirsoftSociety is still alive and kicking, what happened to us?

Actually, why don't we have the mods delete AO Facebook? Give everyone a warning a few days prior so everyone knows what happened and where to go. Surely that'll bring people back, giving them no other option.

I also miss the old days when AO was the place to go for all things Airsoft.
As a member of the faded group Recon Team Anaconda and former call sign Zeph, I remember those days of glory.
I was said when I came back to airsoft with my new team and found a dead website.
I briefly talked with Jonah Mullins about it at Crucible IV and through messages.

I was never big on AO becuase I started airsoft around the time this thing was going down hill but I still check and use the RSVP/ game section

However, not using FB AO you miss out on so much more than you think.

Which is fundamentally the problem with Facebook: You close your eyes for a second and the thread you were reading is already gone, replaced by some other irrelevant stuff. Heck, I even have time finding my own topics on my own facebook group page!!!

So when it is time to talk about an event or a classified, you constantly need to spam/bump the topics if you don't want them to disappear into the abyss within the hour or so

So yeh, Facebook is great if you want to see what is going on right now but for medium and long term, it sucks bad....

^If it's as bad as you say Blade, then why don't you encourage more and more people to come back to AO? You could do as previously suggested and ask the other AO FB mods/admins to shut it down. I miss the days when I actually heard about the events going on and when I could actually learn something every week by talking to the guys on here.

I think we passed the "encouragement" phase unfortunately. As far as shutting down FB, it is like turning off the TV so your kids won't know what a porn movie is. Facebook is here to stay, we just need to figure out ways around it. Personally, I try to avoid posting details as much as possible on it and divert everything on other website such as AO or AEV. Unfortunately, Facebook came up with a brilliant idea of file sharing for the group pages, which help me distribute files when needed. thing that I can hardly do on here. Only solution to elevate this problem is to wait for the next AO revamp, hoping it will have some sort of file sharing system.
