AFUK Patches - link broken?

66 posts in this topic

I submitted a report about 5 months ago but nothing came of it. Supposedly @Devastator handles the patches but he's hardly online and never got back to my PM.

 

I ended up finding one on eBay that I guess a previous user was selling.

I've decided that I'll design a new, independent AF-UK Patch.

 

Waiting to get an official one is not worth it.

 

Give me an evening and we'll have a new unofficial patch.

It'll be good. I used to make patches for gamers back in the day.

 

I can get them made by the lady who makes my ghostbuster patches too, so there'll be no minimum order and they'll be cheap.

I really like simple styles such as the UKAPU patch. Could you have a couple different colours such as green and tan?

Perhaps other more artistically gifted users could also submit designs? I'd love to see a bunch of variations to pick from.

If I have one patch it'll be a custom AFUK patch made by @L3wisD

Unfortunately I've been in touch with Devastator a couple of time before about doing runs of custom AFUK 'yearly' (or even 6-monthly) badges to support the community. He seemed very unreceptive, so I wouldn't expect the ones @L3wisD is going to make to be 'official' (not that this should matter).

 

I believe the link was taken down because it was too much effort to post them. In the run-up to it being removed people were experiencing delays of over a month to get theirs and many had to send PMs to chase it up. I suppose it's been decided that it's easier not to bother (which is a shame).

If he's unwilling to do it himself why doesn't he just post them to another admin? A forum patch obviously interests a fair few people. I assume they've already been bought and paid for? If so it would be a shame to see them go to waste over sheer laziness.

It's starting to grate on me that we all post on a forum that is run by someone who doesn't care about the up keep of this place.

 

Happy for (whatever small amount of) ad revenue to keep coming in.

 

Maybe we should start a new spin off forum from this one?

Ehh.. An interesting idea but at least AF-UK is already established. The time and money required to created a new one and get the rest of the forum to jump ship is probably more effort than it's worth. Not to mention the wealth of information that's been submitted over the years. 

 

I don't know how much control the admins have here but it seems manageable enough - even without the owner. Still, if somebody wanted to follow through with this I'd give it my full support. I've just spent way more time than I'd like to admit on similar projects to have some idea on what it would require and aren't sure it's something others would want to persue.

Na.

 

Look, I'm airing the dirty laundry now because it's been too long and I see these sorts of things coming up semi-frequently, but I think Airsoft Nation use IPB and that's full of mongs. The core membership here has always been the real strength of this community and - although it's waned a bit - it's still a huge asset that most other forums don't have (Arnies probably being the other one where there is actual content worth reading IMO).

Personally I'd love to make my own forum, but as Prof said you lose the core membership which is why I keep coming back to this one
