Another sad problem is that forums like this are dying aside from the huge ones that have the population to ride it out alot longer. Things like reddit/digg are far more appealing to younger kids because there is something for everyone.

But here's the kicker, given freedom to be adults in a forum like this I know ALOT of people that would rather have discussions in this setting than on reddit because it isn't trendy to come here and actually form/share opinions/insight.

So yes, tell your friends. Let's get some chatter in here. But I really don't hope to pull the big crowds from other online communities.

Glad to be back with you guys. For anyone interested, I'm at LSU now for Petroleum engineering. I was talked out of joining the military by MANY people. After getting the run around with multiple recruiters here telling me that the job I wanted was something they didn't like giving contracts for but that I should go through Basic anyways and hope for the best, I said F that and bit the bullet on school.

How have you all been?

Im headed back to school myself, and as a former service member think school is a way better choice than enlisting especially if you don;t get exactly what you want.

So how do we attract those more mature members who want to have a more serious conversation?
I will be done with my business degree here at Oregon in December.

It's a slow process of reaching out to friends and just being as active as we can manage for when older members(like us) happen to pop back in and check up on the place feeling nostalgic. I mostly meant that that we shouldn't be spamming about PBR in places like reddit or digg or facebook and expecting quality people to come through.

Thats awesome that you're almost done with your business degree. I'm 5 classes away from a Business management degree but not pursuing that anymore. I'm exclusively working for the engineering degree.

Evil, thats exactly what I figured. It's a great opportunity if you're the type of person that can handle it. But if you aren't going to get exactly what you want out of it, school is a better option. What are you back in school for?

I dont think most of our old members went to reddit or digg. I believe that most of them went to PBNation and McarterBrown.
I think there has got to be a better way than reaching out to friends and waiting for nostalgic old members to make PBR better. I think that it is only through our own efforts to build, post, and respond to new threads.

It's looking like IT.

Eh, I wasn't really saying they went that way when they left here. I just meant that that would be a bad place to advertise for new members.

I'm all for posting and responding to new threads, but I have zero current knowledge or interest in Pb related topics. I'm sorry. I'm game for discussions in OT and anything else I can, but I won't be able to pretend that paintball still has a spot in my life. I just came back to check on people I'd befriended on here really.

Evil, have fun with that. Can be very fulfilling to set up a wonderful network or system of webpages but UGH some people you will encounter are just ridiculously stupid. Just like any job. Working at my university IT jaded me though.

I'm not looking forward to working with people again especially stupid people but I don't have a choice i'm good with computers so that's what I'm going to work with.

Hey guys. I wondered over here because I got an e-mail from PBR wishing me a happy birthday. I haven't been to this forum in a while, so I figured I would stop in and see what was going on. Apparently the last time I logged in here was April 13, 2010.

It's good to see that there is some action, but also sad to see how far PBR has fallen.

I agree that it would be great to see this place back in its former glory. One way that can happen has to be advertising. The name/web address needs to get out there again. Showing activity through the forums would help to an extent, but that will only help with the people that are coming here. If they forgot this place existed because they only came by on occasion, they might think it fell off the earth and isn't active because they never hear about it.

That's my thought.

Sometime, hopefully soon, I'll follow your guys leads and post in a few places. Since this week is nearly over, I'm going to try for next week. Don't hold me to anything though...

I should probably update my signature too. I doubt those links still work....

I remember as a kid throwing in a Baby Ruth bar in the pool, just so we could take a break from swim team practice while they fished it out.
