Hi Rooster, You are not mistaken that is me.Quote:

manike, unless im mistaken, and i often am, you are the guy who writes for warpig about European events. If writing regularly for the biggest paintball information site on the internet isn't being in the industry, i don't know what is.</font>
I do write articles and send them into warpig exactly the same as I write huge posts on lots of different boards. They are all submitted voluntarily and it's upto the webmasters of such boards if they allow my articles/posts to be read by all.
The articles I write for warpig are done voluntarily in my free time. I do not get paid for them. I do not even get expenses for them. It actually costs me quite a lot sometimes to be able to write them. I write them to be part of paintball and to try and help improve paintball for all. Exactly the same reasons I post on boards like this. If we all here are posting our views and showing pictures we have taken does that make us all part of the industry? I use warpig like I use this board, as a means to share pictures and information with people.
If you wrote an article and submitted it to a magazine voluntarily does that make you part of the industry? If you write a letter to APG and they print it?
Maybe it does? I am looking to be part of the industry but so far paintball has not paid me a penny (well apart from marshalling a local site... http://www.automags.org/ubb/smile.gif )
p.s. One great point to this thread Rooster is that yourself and others who feel your way, are debating and seriously thinking about their posts. That's all good and is food for thought. It's not in FC but who cares, FC is causing good debate even in the main forum. (It's doesn't even matter what the debate is about in my mind).
