First response to those is to encourage them to reach out for options, not tell them "well you have to, so either do or F off"
Tell them its a two way street, put forth the genuine effort to either get AV'd with the means available, or if you are remote and your last av'er is retired, ASC will do their best to help you.

Telling people who bring up those factors to either drive or F off is only contributing to the problem. Time to put forth more positive answers and display the truth, ASC will help if you are willing to help yourself and there are more options than get in your car and you better get lots of timmies...

Yes, initial impression is good, but saying "no" to someone isn't unreasonable. Currently we are looking to place more AV Reps in more communities, especially up north, so if you guys are willing to move to northern BC I'll try and set you up. lol

Usually there isn't a whole lot we can do in certain circumstances. There was some guy in the Baffin Islands one time (I believe in a fly-in community) who wanted to be AV'd, but he had also lost his license to DUI or something, but was demanding an AV Rep travel up there (car, train, plane) and verify him as it would be difficult to head south. Sorry, but unless a rep happens to be traveling through a specific community, you've gotta come to them. I always reccomend that they get all their buddies signed up and do a road trip together to save on gas, etc. They can also hit up all the shops and crap in the larger centers while they are down there. Not ideal, but until there's someone closer, options are only really one. No way to sugar coat that.

You know our AV system works wonders when I get PM's asking me if there is any support ASC can give over a scam deal on another forum/FB page to the person who was scammed for their $$/goods.

Our system works, as we hold our members who take a few minutes of time to read and get AV'd to a higher standard of responsibility and honour then most other pages where everything is handed to them on a golden platter.

Problem with the golden platter is most times is just highly polished brass plating hiding all the rust underneath.

Yea we might have some rust here at ASC, but it is improving and functioning that in the past 10 years I have only had to deal with about 3 legitimate trade complaints, 2 of which were resolved quickly and 1 that resulted in an AV removal. Compared to the early days and pre AV status when it was almost a daily occurrence.

I'd rather have that "rust" then be all fluffy and glitter covered and not be able to offer some level of support in a trade gone bad dealing (heck another forum mention on this thread I have received 3 Pm's regarding bad dealings on it asking if we could help as the admins there just wash their hands and say not their problem), in one of the cases I could as the person used their AV status here as a reference and confirmed via our PM system who they were for the dealing.

ASC soaks up so much of my boredom daily that I could be car jacked by an admin and I probably wouldn't even press charges.

1) this is not a new rule on Facebook, it has existed for 5+ years.
2) They are just enforcing it more finally due to the mass shootings in the USA and lawsuits
3) They will not ban links to retailers and other websites as this is the source of 90% of their revenue from ads.
4) it is okay to link to a website as long as it is not a direct link to a sales ad.
5) Many people in the airsoft community have known about these rules for years, some even talked about it years ago but said lets see what happens, well its finally happened, but the base allowances are still there and allowed.


Sound familiar? It another "Airsoft is Banned In Canada" panic attack.

Calm down. WE ASC are still here, the forums work great.
Scams due to the Age verification program are next to nonexistent.

Just tell your FB friends to sign up here all is good.
