    Save Ao!! Donate Here!!

    All,

    At your request I have setup a crowd funding campaign here:
    SaveAO

    If we reach the goal I will set us up on a new sever with updated software and a remake.

    It's all in your hands now!

    Gentlemen, PLEASE get in touch with us over at TechPB so we can help you

    We've got top notch people who can help you move the site to a SECURE place, such as Echo Servers or something.

    Dragan Tozan is a database master, he can help you move all the files and everything. We can setup a sandbox to move everything over first, check to make sure everything works perfectly, and swap the DNS to the new location. No one would know the difference

    Crazylittle (Chris), Will (Slinkaroo), Dragon Tozan (GroundFire), and Willie (TechPB-Willie) are phenomenal at this stuff and we can help!!

    Send me an email mike@techpb.com, I'll start a CC'd dialogue with the admins at AO and the admins at TechPB. We can help!!!

    Thumbs up to Mike at TechPB. You guys know the routine.
    I'm sure Tom knows what he needs to do. Hopefully it will all get worked out.

    Not to diminish what others have done but maybe the thread should say "Help Luke Save AO!! Donate Here!!" As someone who has recently gotten back into paintball, I have found AO to be invaluable and will be making a donation soon. I would like to thank those that have donated or helped raise money. I appreciate it.

    I'm coming back to AO and mags after a prolonged absence and it's pretty disheartening to hear that AO may be coming to an end.

    I'd am sure there are folks far more vocal and involved than me, but I'd like to encourage you all to think long and hard about the role AO has played in your paintball legacy.

    AO was the forum that got me involved in 'this' side of the game... I have a lot of good memories of this site.

    After I attended the AGD certification course in Washington back in... 1998 (wow I feel old now) and got to talk to Tom about RoF and accuracy; I lived on AO and shot my mag with religous fervor... I interviewed for a tech job with Dave Zupan at Skyball in Toronto one year (damn ex-wife made me turn it down >_<)... I honestly have some of my best memories are with an AGD markers in my hand.

    Think about that next used gun you want to buy, and what this forum means to the next new paintballer or new automag disciple and head over to the Save AO page and put some of that love back into the community that has done so much for us over the years.

    I know my plea may not mean much being that I haven't exactly been a fixture here... but based on what I have seen of degradation of the industry and the rampant me-too-ism of current markers, I implore you to support a manufacturer, marker, and community that is unique and cares about it's users.

    /soapbox off.
