Hotmail users & ASC aka Hotmail sucks.
May 16, 2016 - 11:33 AM - by BloodSport
Okay reposting this since it has been awhile since the last notice.

Hotmail likes to just randomly delete messages from our forums, the only users we have been having issues reported from when checked all have hotmail accounts linked to their accounts.

So this means they do not usually get the email verification when they first sign up which severely restricts what they can and cannot do on the forums. Or if they make it past the verification email, typically will not receive any email notifications if they have them turned on.

If you are experiencing these issues, you need to change your email to a non hotmail account.

Reminder for Classified Ads
Mar 09, 2016 - 10:25 AM - by BloodSport
With the recent FB banning we would like to welcome many of you back and many new members onto the forums.

Please remember when making sales/want ads that we ask that you list multiples of the same category (example 3 AEGs) in the same thread instead of spamming multiple sales threads.
We will merge multiple sales ads in the same category if found (if you list 4 gear sales threads, we will make them into 1 for example).

Classified Sales Rules can be found stickied in each section, or for a quick reference: http://airsoftcanada.com/announcement.php?f=48&a=45

This is to help keep sales threads from spamming and hiding others sales, it also ties into our 7 day no bumping rules, to keep the spam down


Thanks.

Age Verifications
Oct 02, 2015 - 1:16 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.

Threats of Physical Harm
Mar 11, 2014 - 11:58 PM - 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.

Do you want to become a retailer?
Dec 08, 2011 - 10:18 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 - 12:45 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

SPAM - Read This
Sep 07, 2011 - 11:00 PM - by Drake
So it's been a year and either some new people aren't reading older news posts or some older folks are getting forgetful.

So here's a reminder...

SPAM
AND YOU!


Yes, we've been getting a lot of spammers/adbots/etc lately. Thanks to everyone who's reporting it, the staff can't constantly monitor all the forums and we rely on post reports to be able to address spam (and other problematic posts) in a timely manner.

That being said, PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM MESSAGES; it makes it a lot more difficult to clean up quickly if there's a whole thread (i.e., replies) rather than a single post (the SPAM).

Also please stick to the Report Post function: do not MSN / text / phone / email / Facebook me about it, I'm not on duty 24/7 -- and odds are it'll get taken care of more quickly if the whole staff can see it.

To those who want to try and smuggle guns across the border.
Aug 15, 2011 - 6:17 PM - by BloodSport
This came to the attention of the ASC staff several months ago, the user in question back then had their age verification removed at that time.

We just received this via PM's recently. Said user is now pending court on several charges.

So keep this in mind when the members here tell you to wait, get age verified and visit the retaillers already established in Canada and who are doing it legally.

"Canada Border Services Agency officials at the Pigeon River border crossing have confiscated a number of replica firearms from a Canadian resident.

The seizures happened on June 16, but the information was not released by the Canada Border Services until Thursday.

Eight airsoft replica firearms and four replica magazines were discovered in the vehicle and seized.

The driver, who failed to report the items, will appear in provincial court on Aug. 16 on charges related to smuggling prohibited weapons into Canada.

For more information about the right and obligations regarding guns or other weapons in Canada visit the CBSA online."

"Prosecutions and Seizures

Northern Ontario Region

Replica firearms seized at the Pigeon River port of entry

Pigeon River, Ontario, July 28, 2011 — The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) seized prohibited replica firearms from a Canadian resident at the Pigeon River port of entry last month.

On June 16, 2011, a CBSA officer referred a vehicle for a secondary examination. During the examination, officers discovered and seized a total of eight airsoft replica firearms and four replica magazines. The driver failed to report the replica firearms even when specifically questioned about the prohibited goods.

The driver was released on a Promise to Appear at an Ontario Provincial Court on August 16, 2011. A joint investigation into this case continues between the CBSA and the Ontario Provincial Police Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit.

Replica firearms are prohibited from entering Canada under the Criminal Code, the Firearms Act and Customs Tariffs and may not be imported into Canada. The Customs Act stipulates that all goods entering Canada must be declared to the CBSA. Smuggling, untrue statements and other Customs Act violations may lead to prosecution in a court of law.

For information about your rights and obligations regarding the importation of guns and other weapons into Canada consult the Firearms and other restrictions section on the Information for visitors to Canada page. "


Notice the dates on these articles, these are recent, not "old news" So those who say it is safe to do, should recheck their facts.
