Recommended Posts

Nah, it’ll be back eventually, Zero One will monetise it if they have any sense

I really hope it's not. There was some good stuff on there, especially the classifieds.

I also messaged them on messenger. They opened it 2 minutes later but I got no response.

We may get a few new members asking for advice or selling items while Zero In is off-line.

I'll have to get back to you on that lol, tbh I wasn't the biggest fan of zin, it's only saving grace was its traffic, always something new to read (or rip the shiz out of ;) )

Personally, I preferred Z1 because of thetraffic and classifides, but I do love how I can just talk about stuff here without having to use code lol. 

 

“Where did you get that gun from?”

 

”imagine me painted red”

This is not a commercial forum that is linked to any retailer, manufacturer, or skirmish site so we are free to discuss any airsoft kit and compare prices, quality, customer service, etc.

I get that, Jedi. I don’t blame them for it either, but it is annoying that my ‘main’ forum is like that. Maybe if Z1 stays dead, people will move over here, giving us more content and classifieds and the forum will be the best, well rounded forum in the UK

I'm not sure Z1 will return if they can't do it for free TBH..

It seems busier on there with more action in the classifieds at least and less people mess about or they seem to know what they want.

I always considered that this forum catered for the younger player and is not yet as well established,but I do like them both.

Only zeroin members I’ve interacted with (outside of classifieds) are all active or were on here

As a former ZI forum user, i'd say it's likely gone for good. For the last six months it's been indentified by google as a site compromised by malware with a full-screen alert coming up every time you visited, culminating last month when major ISPs started flat out blocking access to it. Even if they get it up again most of their userbase has got fed up and migrated elsewhere (hi!)

 

Shame, they had an excellent classifieds section and there were some good tutorials on there.

I literally only used z1 for the marketplace. my work pc wouldn't let me go anywhere near it for months before it went away. shame as I got some good deals off there but forums sometimes die its just how it is.

Doubtless thanks to them using plaintext http for logins both on zeroin and on zerooneairsoft.  Perhaps when their commerce site gets blicklisted too they'll realise that it's not 1996 any more.

 

Shame, I was finding it fairly useful for noob information, and the reputation system did give some minimum basis for trust in the classifieds.

 

There was a thread on there exclaiming that zeroin was dying anyway due to people migrating to Facebook groups, but "LOL M8" / "YEH M8" isn't really a substitute for a searchable archive of tips and wisdom.

Could I suggest that this forum maybe expands its classifieds

to pick up from ZIN. I agree with most of the comments regarding

security on ZIN, but I found it a very useful place for parts.

Hmm, it's not up yet, but I'm not getting the HOOKY SITE!!!! warning today.  Might be an encouraging sign, might be totally random.

 

Was random, it's gone all DECEPTIVE SITE! again. :(

I do hope its not dead, Ive been using the forums there for many many years, and more importantly built up tonnes of classifieds positive feedback. Their classifieds section was great, I liked how it was laid out more sensibly than most places (not a fan of how this forum just has "spring, electric or gas" as options, I dont want to trawl through GBB rifles when Im on the hunt for a gas pistol, or shotties when I want a springer rifle etc.) I much prefer using forums to buy/sell stuff rather than FB airsoft groups full of 13yr old scammers.  

 

It also had an absolute wealth of knowledge and experience, it would be saddening to see all that die. However theyve only got themselves and their inept tech support to blame. Plus the ridiculously over-zealous moderation.

Create a post in Forum Feedback. I'm sure the admins would appreciate your input.
