Well,

For what its worth, I will for now on be putting 100% of my support into GTA, as I have been banned from posting at the other forum/yellow.:(

I actually made some good friends over there, fortunately have some of their personal e-mail addresses, so can stay in touch with them, or tell them to consider GTA should they like too.

O.h. well.

Respectfully,

Al.

No prob.  We help posts get to the right place.

The GTA is a great place to hang out and talk airguns.  I'm sorry about your troubles in other sites.  Just pull up a chair here and sit a while.

Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."  Thomas Jefferson

Don't feel bad. I got banned after I joined both the Yellow and GTA. I knew nothing of either and posted on the Yellow first then stumbled onto the GTA. I was welcomed just fine at the Yellow and only posted a few times. Only a introduction and I was getting a QB-79. Well I liked the GTA set up more and the people poured out their knowledge so I just stuck around.

A few months later I go to post on the Yellow when someone asked a QB question and could not!? The reason? Banned. No reason why, just banned LOL!

I can only guess that someone at the Yellow cruises the GTA and if someone gives a unwelcome opinion here and they happen to be on the Yellow too, well out ya go!

Jonnyboy is right, just pull up a chair and hang here. Tons and tons of airgun knowledge with people freely giving their time and knowledge.

Don't feel bad Al.  They ban people everyday from the Yellow. 
I joined the Yellow a few months before the GTA, but after a couple of months here I decided to make it my 2nd home.  You have access to the knowledge and experience of 7,000 people here.  We are all one big family and now you are part of it.

Thanks Gentlemen!

The more I think about it, the more I regret the fact that i even mentioned it, but it did help me to know that I'm not alone.

Not saying I'm glad it happened to others.

Was not necessary to be banned imho.

Anyway, I'm here now and enjoying tons of good reads!

GTA is plenty Forum for me!:)

I'm extremely sorry to hear that you got banned from the Yellow forum
Al.  It seems like that happens to a lot of people over there.
It must be run by a dictator.

You seem like a heck of a nice guy, and I sincerely hope that
you don't cause any trouble over here either. ;D

The admin here run this place so well. It takes quite a bit to get banned here and never happens with the first offense that I've seen. I know they have been very tolerant with me for which I'm grateful. The look and design of this site is so much more user friendly than that site. The look and design of their site is actually repulsive to me so I've never felt a desire to post there. The accounts of many here getting banned from there for no good reason tell me that I'm not missing anything by not being there other than missing out on aggravation from dealing with miserable people who have no business running a forum.

They can't even begin to approach the quality of GTA or the admin running it.

  It seems like that happens to a lot of people over there.
It must be run by a dictator.

I surf a lot of forums, of my many different hobbies, and interest, I don't post near as much as I just surf and lurk..

I have noticed a lot of post mod. Edited over there, or words taken out. Post marked removed for breaking rule number such and such..

I have looked through their site and can't really find a complete "list of rules"
I am a member there (only 3 post) we will see if I get banned over there for this post.

They really can't post a list of "don't say this name or topic" because that would be a direct violation of their rules wouldn't it (catch 22)

I really don't understand why they would not let you mention one airgun smiths name, and not another unless the guy is worried about competition because his work is sub standard, or not on par with others, and then that is sure NOT the guy I want working on my guns.

I mean we are here to exchange information, unless the information you try to disperse is illegal, or so grossly incorrect that it post a hazard to others if they follow your advice, or a rant against another individual with a lot of foul language, I see no reason to edit someone's post.

Just my thoughts on the subject.

Thanks Robert, that explains it!

Gotta say...why even have a forum about airguns if you can't talk about airguns and major players in the business?

It appears the Yellow has modeled itself after a bad reality TV show.

This thread explains a lot.  I gave up on the other forum when I found GTA, because the other forum is very difficult (IMHO) to navigate and search.  I can't be critical of the other forum because I just don't go there.  GTA has been a big source of information and inspiration for me, just what I need as I get deeper into this air gun thing. 
I belong to other forums for different interests and they all take on the personality of those who run them.  Some are businesses, some are volunteer like GTA.  Moderators can choose to put themselves above the membership and run it like a clique, or they can be very generous and friendly like GTA.  Reading GTA I've never felt it was a personality contest or that anyone with a business took advantage of the forum to promote their products or services.  In fact, quite the opposite.  This has been a refreshingly new forum experience for me.
Hats off to the folks that run GTA!
