Thought id throw this out there to corespond with the Forum being slow thread,

To start I was informed about a thread on the "OTHER FORUM" where I was brought up in and told to check it out and in doing so I found one about this site. I ended up having a big laugh at the mentality in the thread even if a friend of mine started it.

Here is a couple direct quotes from the thread over there,

- "Banned Camp
This place really does exsist it seams that there has been so many people banned from here that someone had to start a new forum for them. I did visit it last night but It don't hold a candle to this place and there are a few people that I just don't miss bad enough to go visit them. "  Huntin


- "IMHO, if you manage to get yourself banned from THIS board, you probably would have to create your own... It's like being suspended from reform school. LOL And that's a group of people I have no desire to go visit.

Thread after thread of screaming rants. "   Okotokian



- "there are definitely a couple dummies there that probably shouldnt be allowed on the internet...or anywhere public for that matter. there are also a few guys that actually know what the heck they are tallking about and have some outdoor experience. those guys are missed here, and id gladly trade them for some of the donkeys here that have never been in the outdoors, but are experts on everything....." ishootbambi



LOL makes me happy to be over here. No screaming rants and no im better than you are arguments. Keep up the good job here guys. May not be 200 posts per day but when we have threads they arent very often about petty things, they cover strong topics and seem to 98% of the time stay on topic. You look at the knowledge and the success of all members here and this forum will do nothing but grow and in 10yrs time will be a power house that other forums will have to acknowledge instead of just erase the name of when guys ask for it LOL

We might be growing in numbers as you can see but the amount people post is not growing much.  To me it seems like the same old crew bringing up topics and the odd guy chippin in every so often.  Not sure how to get guys to share more or pipe in on a topic but it would be nice if we had a little bit more going on.

Sure a few more threads and such would be ok but as long as we avoid all the garbage threads that you see on most forums. Even when I was on AO I only posted on the odd thread. You also have to look at a lot of the members here, most of us just finished our busy season and many aren't the stay at home type you see doing most of the posting on forums or at least on the ones I'm a member of. The other part is we have a small community so far and most people aren't on the net everyday. Threads will increase as membership does but so will a lot of the quality. Look at other forums you have the dedicated hardcore group of hunter that only discuss important comments and topics, then you have all the filler threads. Our group here are all dedicated guys and that filler stuff just hasn't seeped in here yet. Give it time Nube, soon you will be saying it sure was nice when we were smaller!

hmmm....im not sure my quote should be displayed alongside the other two.....

im actually a little surprised that thread has been open this long? 

ill get a new thread going here as soon as i have it ready.  i picked up a mega shed, but its weathered badly.  once i have it resotred pics will be coming.

 i agree that the threads started just to fight are unneccessary, as are those about taxes and mojitos.  we all have tons of stories and adventures to share....maybe everyone should pick a trophy from years ago and share a story about it...?
opinions are like sphincters......everyone has one, and they all stink!

great thread sheep... and thanks ISB for sticking up for some of us... even if it wasnt me... as far as im concerned the other sight doesnt hold a candle to this one... i have yet to see any real stupid threads here... i mean the back at camp section has been pretty much only about the outdoors...  or the odd joke or whatnot which is great... some of the threads on the other site just make me shake my head and i feel have no place on an outdoors forum...  idk i like whats happening here and im proud to be a member of this forum.... .cheers... and keep up the good work everyone

I have no idea what this banned thing is all about. Most of the members that are here aren't banned there. Anyway couldn't give a shit. We were able to get our ad in the fishing regs coming out so our issues are sorted. Should have a slot in the hunting regs too.

That thread appears to be gone now.  I suppose even though it shed this forum in a negative light, the mods over there felt threatened by it.  Fits right in with their no competition policy.
Great news about the ad in the fishing regs, Paul.

BTW...."Thread after thread of screaming rants. "   Okotokian

What the heck is that guy talking about.  There are no screaming rants here.  I think he has us confused with AO.

no, you are one of the guys i was referring to as knowing how the world works.  there have only been a couple retards here and they seem to have gotten the message and shut up lately.  they know who they are...especially the ONE that thinks he is fooling anyone with multiple profiles.....

Well SG, AO can kiss my maritime ass. Most of the dummies are over there and should have been banned long ago. Some of you guys know my battles with that TJ. He has  broke every rule on the forum and why isn't he gone. Wouldn't be Rob sucks his ass because he writes (lies) (and stolen material) for the magazine would it?

You know what, I have 4 computers on 5 different email accounts including internet sticks. About 6 months ago I went over there and registered under another name just so I could watch and throw in the odd dig. Stupid assholes, Tuc is banned but Ron isn't.
Anyrate, too be honest with you, I haven't visited that forum for 3 or 4 months now and don't miss it one bit. I have done favours at the Sportsman's show for that ****in snake and bought his magazine for years. When you bite the hand that feeds you, you'll only bite it once.

Paul glad to hear you got on ther regs. I guess our letters to the minister must of helped some. Keep up the good work. R.M. isn't the outdoor guru he thinks he is and he definitely don't own the regs.

Give it time Nube, give it time. it's a new site and you heard Paul say sometime ago. "It's not going away!"

The fishing regs just came out and now that the site is advertised on the regs, you will see this place grow in leaps and bounds.

WTS, boys, don't be afraid to bad mouth that place if you feel fit.  They do it to this site (E.G. Banned Camp) and as far as I'm concerned, that is only brainwashing 'could be new members.
**** em, fight fire with fire!

P.S.
Maybe it`s time to go over there and play.  ***evil little grin!*****

  Personally there are only a few over there that are worth talking to.  I never read the rag of a magazine either it is very negative.
  That darn TJ could use a swift kick in the balls I am not sure Y he has decided to come off as such a clown.  I hope that David Webb drops him from westersports men there truly is a problem when TJ is the authority on long range hunting this guy doesnít even reload.
  Internet Ball kick to you TJ  >:(

Guys lets not get derailed here. TJ has nothing to do with any of the issues we had with Sportscene. The issues were settled after a few calls to the SRD and we are relatively satisfied with the outcome. If people want to slander Alberta Sportsman on AO so be it would like to put ourselves above that. I could care less what a douchebag troll like Okotokian thinks, no time for ill informed lemmings.

The board here is growing, it will take time, I have no issue with a small focused group. I expect 10000 members here by the end of 2013, we are working to grow the community. Keep in mind we don't need this place to put food on the table, this place is for the members, by the members, and members will always come first. If people want to sponsor the board, like Paul from Wee hours and Roy from Blacktail designs have, great, it's appreciated, but you won't see me out pounding on doors looking for advertisers. I am still working with Cabelas Canada on their affiliate program, they are stagnant with it now because google refuses to pay commissions on any firearm related sales (note to people google is anti gun). Anyway, for amusement, there was certainly some interest because of that post, some of the searches that found us yesterday...

ban from alberta outdoorsmen
banned camp outdoorsmen
alberta ooutdoorsmen banned camp
alberta outdoorsmen banned camp

Even negative ideas have positive results. 10 new members for that post. Remember, lot's of people have their own minds, they will let the quality of the forum dictate whether or not the sign up.

I think the growth of this forum will be outstanding in the near future as still many people haven't heard about it. With the new adds in the regs and threads such as the one AO erased the word is getting out and yesterday should be a good demonstration of what can and will be happening here!

TJ may have had nothing to do with sportscene but I bet he had something to do with half of the members here getting banned from the other forum whos name we will not say...... Dont ever disagree with the great TJ or any of his buddies or you will get a warning or banned and your post deleted, guess those guys are anti free speech
Sorry I don't ice fish or hunt rabbits, but I did stay at a Holliday in express last night.
