And to the members, how did you find the forum?

Mines same as dave and Liam. But on a side note would be good to know a bit of background as dev seems a very mysterious character. You build up a mental picture about what people are Like from reading posts but all devs are understandably manly moderating the forum.

I think at the time ASCUK (Airsoft Community UK) had gone down for a few days and I had the thought that should they go for good (and they did in the end) then there wasn't really any forums hitting up the results for ~ 'uk airsoft forum' (i.e. they're all called something more specific). I realised that people tend to join if you're top and you've all proved it so :P

Dave brought me.

 

Was a member of The Fort foum, but realised that was a tad pointless because:

a)I don't play at The Fort (when it was still around), whilst an open community, it seemed a bit difficult to get involved.

b)The forum was very closely linked with AW, which meant reviews on airsoft guns seemed to be slightly biased in favour of stuff they stocked.

Shame its gone, I did manage to have a few laughs with them.

I was in Australia, and had been for 2 and a half months, and I missed my airsofting, so i joined a forum to stay up to date!
