Like Ganef said, think critically before posting. If you have something of value to add like experience dealing with the subject then your good, if you are asking a legit question about the topic that you really want to know then your good.

Some members on here like to go out of their way to point out a necro post just because of dates are not close, as long as your post is relevant then don't worry, they just have to much time on their hands. I rather have you continue on a old post then start a whole new post. That way when you do a search you can find info in few posts then getting a bunch of crap pulled up.

Just avoid making commentary posts like "that is so cool" or "I want one of those"

For those that like to correct others for reviving a post when they are being legitimate about it, adding knowledge or asking further questions, get past it, I promise you will be able to manage.

I think the problem with some n00bs is that they necropost simply to get rid of the n00b tag. That's when people start getting pissed off because these n00bs didn't put any real effort into getting rid of the tag in the first place.

In my opinion, necroposting itself isn't bad - As long as it is pertinent.  Posting something that is not pertinent well after the conversation has ended is in bad form, I think.  However, what irks me more than just that is the usual resulting mini-mods attempting to tell that necroposter that he just did something wrong.  If the one post is out of place and incorrect, the 3 more that random people post to point that out is 3x as bad.

Well, you need a minimum of five people.

You need a squad leader, a rifleman, an antitank soldier, a medic and a sniper.

Ideally the squad leader would have a couple unlocks so that your team can be really good. If you have the patch and website unlocks that's even better.

After that, pick a cool tag and you're half way there.

Well, in airsoft, an anti-tank guy would need at a minimum an m203 or an m79 but more likely some type of rocket launcher like a at4 or law or something. Basically something that launches a foam rocket and will count towards killing a vehicle like truck or Humvee or something.

This is how a tank can get taken out. Using the term "tank" rather loosely, this mostly refers to APCs, half-tracks and other vehicles.

What is an APC and Half-track. Also how much have you guys spent on airsoft.

Huh, thanks for posting this even though I had no intent to be one of those internet addicts whom all they have to say is nothing but complete idiocracy, Also can anybody tell me when there is going to be an event where minoritys could attend that not require your parent to be there with you? I'm 13 and can't find any events that i qualify to attend.

-Thanks
-Joe
