Half of those are spammers and created-but-never-used accounts. I kid you not.

Quick stats:

11,215 accounts active in the past calendar year (this includes spammers and bots and everything);
8923 AV'd accounts at the moment I write this;
5113 AV'd accounts which have seen activity in the past calendar year;
of the 55,566 registered accounts, 5,485 (almost 10%) haven't completed the Email Verification :P

Your idea is bad and you should feel bad.

I nominate myself as Minister of Douchebaggery in the new government, anyone that disagrees can eat a dick

Point proven since I'm not good with navigating forums. 5113 AV'ed players that are somewhat serious with the sport. Not exactly a roaring market or large body.

^ There's actually a lot of people who don't even know what ASC is... I went to flagswipe a few weeks ago and almost everyone I talked to had no clue there was even a forum active for this stuff.

But if someone is pretty serious they would at least get an account here, since it opens up more avenues of airsoft products, and has a ton of relevant information.

Yeah, if we arbitrarily divide that evenly between the 10 lower provinces, that's like 500 people per; if we calculate even just 10 electoral ridings per province (by way of reference, Ontario has 105 and Quebec 75) that would be an average 50 people per riding. Hardly rocking the vote.

The Garbage Dump is kind of like prison and retailer fees are kind of like taxation.
Hell, gossipy regional shaming and bullshit is even kind of like law enforcement.

It's clear to me that our great nation needs a Navy, there is no better place for it than Manitoba, and I nominate myself to lead it.

It burned, fell over, then sank into the swamp.
