Forum Updates - Software Updated to newest version!!
Dec 11, 2018 - 12:31 PM - by BloodSport
Hi, Everyone

Some of you may have noticed, but ASC underwent some upgrades a few weeks ago quietly, we found a few bugs since doing so and have fixed them and so far everything else is running stable that we can see.

We are now currently running the newest version of VBulletin 3.8.11 available, huge upgrade from the old 1.something we were on.

Hopefully this with the newest versions of anti spam also upgraded we should see a lot less issues and some new features available for usage.

I know as an admin I am loving some of the new controls we have, including instant IP bans for spam accounts that do happen to make it past the bots.

Multiple Accounts
Nov 29, 2018 - 6:37 PM - by BloodSport
It is kind of messed up that we need to post this.

As per our forum rules at no time is it acceptable to have multiple accounts here. When we do find out about multiple accounts, all but the original one will be banned, if the user is a multiple account abuser multiple times, they all will be banned and quite often so will the IP address.

At the same time if you have an account and lost your AV status for being stupid, making a new account and trying to get re verified will not work. If for some weird reason it slips through we will eventually find out and all accounts will be banned.

So once again 1 account = okay, making multiple accounts = not okay.

Recent Spam
May 28, 2018 - 4:57 PM - by BloodSport
Hey everyone we are aware of a recent spam blast on the forms both via general posts, and as seen this past weekend via PM's.


The owners of ACS are aware of it, and are updating the spam software and implementing some new new member steps which will hopefully fix it. It sounds like many forums got his hard this weekend from the reports they are reading from other site owners.

Clarification to Buy/Sell rules
Sep 25, 2017 - 5:21 PM - by BloodSport
Sad that we have had to add a line to the Buy/Sell rules for clarification but recently a situation came up where it was required.

As a seller, when you advertise a gun that "is in working condition, but recently started making a noise I think its a motor" and the only other details you provide is that there is a minor section of damage to the barrel, and that is all the photos show and sell the gun cheaply because you do not have the time or skill to fix the possible issue. Do not be surprised when the person who buys it receives it, finds out it is missing a bunch of parts and has quite a few other pieces of damage not mentioned or shown in any of the photos posted, is upset and leaves you a negative feedback.

Do not leave them retaliatory feedback calling them a whiner because you sold it to them super cheap.

Not disclosing that you have pilfered quite a few parts from the gun, not mentioned a fair amount of other damages as well in your cheap gun ad is dishonest.

Due to the amount of the gun in this case being super low, we did not remove the AV tags of the seller this time (he did get a 3 month ban for being a douche though). We did remove the retaliatory feedback he left and if he does so again it will end up in a perma ban.

So the new rule is about disclosure, providing the proper information regarding what you are selling to others. If you state it is in working condition with a suspected motor issue, do not sell it if you fail to mention you removed parts from the gearbox to fix one of your other guns first. If you say the body is in good shape other then 1 small spot (and your photos only show this), and it is received with cracks and other damages you did not disclose this violates said rules.

Honesty people, this sport is based upon it and Honour. Show this in your sales as well, or you will lose the privilege of selling here.

ASC Facebook page(s)
Apr 25, 2017 - 6:52 PM - by BloodSport
Thought I would throw this up here as a FYI as it keeps coming up.

The ASC Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/realairsoftcanada/
Is not affiliated with the Airsoft Canada Forums, it was started by someone who is not an admin or owner of the forums. Yes there is some of our moderators who are admins there, but as mentioned what happens on the FB page has no bearing to actions done here on ASC.

The only official ASC Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/AirSoftCanada/
Which was started by one of our forum owners. And is not super active as we prefer the forums.



So when you have a complaint about the FB page initially mentioned in this post, please contact one of their admins to complain and not send messages to Admins here on the Forums.

Their Shitposts and flamewars are theirs to deal with, not ours. Their "elite" posters who make new members and smaller groups feel unwelcome belong there, all are welcome here provided you follow the forum rule sets We have been working very hard here on the forums to keep the flame wars to minimums and provide a quality resource page for members to research and gain information via.

Hotmail users & ASC aka Hotmail sucks.
May 16, 2016 - 12:33 PM - 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 - 11:25 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.
