ASC Name Change Event
Nov 03, 2015 - 5:56 PM - by bean
As this is the month to Remember our fallen soldiers who have given so much for this country its time to raise some money for Many to One.

With that its name change charity time. Since its a pain in the ass to change your annoying name of 3lit3-SnipperSnapper32ZOMGWTFBBQ this year and any event further will be $25 all of which goes to charity.

If you fail to follow any of these instructions you will be out $25 as there is no refunds and will be expected to RTFM(Read the F**king Manual).

1. Payment of $25 can be made through EMT to ryan@airsoftcanada.com with the password being airsoft
2. Do not post in this thread unless money is already sent to me. This thread will only serve to organize who has paid and for me to display your shame if you cock up these instructions.
3. Do not PM me
4. Go here http://www.airsoftcanada.com/memberlist.php and check if your username is already taken
5. If your username is already taken and the person has 0 posts and hasn't logged on in a few years and you absolutely need BarbieGirl instead of Barbie_Girl or any other reasonable variation of it you can EMT $40 for the annoyance of changing one username and then changing it to yours. Its all for charity you cheap bastards so don't complain.
6. When you post in this thread the format goes like this EMT'd desired username. So if I were to do it it would be EMT'd Master_of_the_Universe . If your desired username is taken note it here by adding already in use 0 posts so I know.
7. Read everything above and follow it to the word. I am feeling extra vindictive for failures to follow directions this year.

Names Changed

Age Verifications
Oct 02, 2015 - 2:16 PM - by BloodSport
As some of you may or may not have noticed, the staff and verifiers of ASC forums have been working hard to get our lists updated and easier to navigate for those of you looking to gain age verifications.

There has been countless hours put into this process, and still more to do (the Ontario and Quebec lists are still a work in progress).

Also each province now has an extra point of contact being added to the lists, there is a "Master" AV rep that has stepped forward to help keep the lists and reps updated. In the event you have questions or issues reaching a rep in your region these Master AVers are there to help provide you with additional support in tracking down someone, or redirecting you to you next closest rep.

Please visit: for all your Age Verification needs.

Has Honour and Respect in Airsoft Died?
Sep 14, 2015 - 1:23 PM - by BloodSport
Where has all the honour and respect of this sport gone?

Definition:
honour
noun
- [MASS NOUN] High respect; great esteem:
- [IN SINGULAR] A person or thing that brings esteem

SYNONYMS
- Something regarded as a rare opportunity and bringing pride and pleasure; a privilege:
- a thing conferred as a distinction, especially an official award for bravery or achievement.

verb
Regard with great respect:

SYNONYMS
- Pay public respect to.
- Fulfil (an obligation) or keep (an agreement):

- Be honourable in your actions, honour the base rules of this game and those you play with. Call your own hits, control your anger when you perceive someone else is cheating (walk off field approach an admin and ask for them to deal with, versus screaming/yelling/getting in someones face).


respect
noun
- [MASS NOUN] A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements:
SYNONYMS
- The state of being admired or respected:
- (respects) A person’s polite greetings:
- informal Used to express the speaker’s approval of someone or something
- Due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others

verb
- Admire (someone or something) deeply, as a result of their abilities, qualities, or achievements
- Have due regard for (someone’s feelings, wishes, or rights)
- Avoid harming or interfering with
- Agree to recognize and abide by (a legal requirement)


Will all the cheaper and easier access to guns in the past few years, the aspect of honour and respect has appeared to die with them.

The first rules when this game first started off and for many many many years was to honour your fellow players, and respect them, yourself and the guns we use. Players who broke the rules, or went out of their way to inflict more harm were chastised and taught to not do so. If they chose to continue they were removed from the groups and game and asked to not come back.

Now we have players who are know for (and in some cases have themselves stated they) only taking headshots. Heck there is even a few teams known to have initiation requirements for new players to get x amount of headshots (including headshots on already dead players) before they become full members of their teams, even when full body mass shots are available.

We have players and event/field hosts who are encouraging/endorsing headshots and unsafe practices because the player who got shot "should have worn better protection" because they are playing a sport where they get shot at. For 15+ years this sport never required body armour/full face protection. Why? Because it use to be common practice that as new players were brought into this sport, they were taught to better themselves as players before upgrading their guns. Now that guns come pre upgraded this seems to have been thrown out the window. Why?

Is it that people have less regard for their fellow player and feel that they are so macho and impervious to common sense that we feel the need to hurt our fellow players so we can be "cool" or "elite"???

A cool or elite player should be one who exemplifies what this sport should be about. Respect for your fellow players and the guns we use is what should be strived for, not inflicting undue injury/pain.

Threats of Physical Harm
Mar 12, 2014 - 12:58 AM - by BloodSport
I should not be having to make a post about this, threatening other members with physical harm is against the forum rules, and can also become an issue with the authorities if the member threatened deems it necessary to contact the police.

Tonight I was provided proof from a member who received a threat from another member to act with physical harm at an upcoming event.

Said member has been given his only warning to never do so again here. Next time it is full removal from the site for ever.

I am also providing said members information to the event hosts for them to make their own decision on whether to allow him access to their events or not.

If you threaten physical harm, and the receiving party decides to take it to the police and they investigate we will give up your information if it is done via ASC to the police. This includes your age verification information.

No one needs or deserves threats of physical assault over anything to do with out sport like that.

Nuff said.

Name and User Title Change Charity Event
Jun 20, 2013 - 1:46 PM - by bean
Hi I am Nigerian Royalty

Alright ladies and gentlemen, Some of you have picked some pretty stupid names and the staff are quite tired of fixing them all the time. Not only that but some of you want user titles and or fancy images like I have in my user title.

READ THE RULES CAREFULLY

What we require from you:

Name Change
-Your current username and desired username along with notification you sent payment posted in here with like this (Bean GODOFASC payment sent) If you do not do this I get the right to change your name to something humiliating and you get to donate a second time to get your desired username.
An EMT of $10 or more to donations@airsoftcanada.com with a password of airsoft and with your current username and desired username. Use this http://www.airsoftcanada.com/memberlist.php?do=search to check if the name is available. If you pick one that is used we aren't going to change your name and you can donate another $10 to the cause for wasting our time.
-If you want a name that's already being used but has 0 posts and has not logged on in 5 years you can pay $25

User Titles
-This is sure to interest some people. We are offering custom user titles. You will have two different levels you can get. Basic text like you have now but saying what you want and one with an included graphic like you see in mine.
This is great for retailers and teams.
-So since this is just cosmetic and not really important just a user title is $25 and if you want the added graphic it will be $30
-YOU must provide a link to the image - Make sure its on a reliable image host. (I would highly recommend imgur so that the image link is small!)
-The image should be a max size of
---Just text = Max 20 Char, Spaces count.
---Image + text = No larger than (H)25px by (W)40px and max 15 char, Spaces count.
---All Blank space/background of the images must be translucent, and saved in a format that supports it (PNG). This is to avoid blocky images that just don't appeal to the eye.
-If your user title is deemed inappropriate or something like Admin we will assign you one of our choosing. You can also choose for us to pick one but we cant guarantee its awesomeness.
-Follow the same rule as with the name change. Desired user title if an image is being used also and payment sent. For instance "2 Cent Tactical" payment sent

100% of Donations will be going to Wounded Warriors, a Canadian Charity. We did good last year but this year we need to knock it out of the park.

Please note the change of sending the money before posting so that more then just one admin can edit things. If you don't do this and I end up noticing its been several days since you claimed you sent payment you will be assigned a sex act or venereal disease as your user name and likely have your account limited for wasting our time.

$650

YOU MUST POST IN HERE LIKE I HAVE SHOWN SO THAT AN ADMIN OTHER THEN ME CAN HELP WITH THIS

Do you want to become a retailer?
Dec 08, 2011 - 11:18 PM - by bean
Well as some of you may have gotten the email I am currently in charge of handling all retailers now. So when you email donations@airsoftcanada.com you get me.

What does this mean for you?
-Faster response time
-Reason for approval or not of your request to retail
-Less downtime on ad and retailer status glitches

If you have been trying to contact ASC in regards to being a retailer feel free to give that email address a shot again. I should have things running at a steady state by next week I hope. I am just in the process of getting familiarized with all that needs to be done.

Thank you for your patience in this matter and I look forward to being able to help via email soon.

Regards
Ryan

ASC loading a blank page
Nov 07, 2011 - 1:45 PM - by Drake
A lot of people seem to be having this problem and it's apparently preventing people from doing a Search since the question has come about about a dozen times now.


1. GO TO THIS URL:

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/profile.php?do=editoptions


2. SCROLL DOWN TO "DATE & TIME OPTIONS" AND CHANGE "DST CORRECTION" TO ALWAYS ON OR ALWAYS OFF, LIKE THIS:




3. SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE AND CLICK "SAVE CHANGES"

4. SEND ME BEER MONEY OR I WON'T HELP YOU NEXT TIME :P
