Hello Demonx0.... sorry for the thread crapping here in your post... these guys do have a point to what they are saying, but I think I will try to clarify exactly what it is they have a problem with just in case its not clear. they're not trying to be dillholes, or rude, they just want to protect the integrity of what is posted here at Airsoftforum.com .
First of all... WELCOME to ASF....
Well, most important things first: use proper grammar, I can literally not understand you. The other thing is you said you'll be playing backyard airsoft, I believe... that's against rules here at ASF. I suggest you reading them...
Easy killer... maybe try explaining it for the guy. Yes backyard airsoft is not a good idea in the City Limits - check our pinned topics for more information about this. You need to be on private area way from public view or on a public designated play-field or else you might catch hell from the local police department.
please clean up your grammar, you are 20 years old typing like a 12 year old. You will get greater responses by using correct grammar.
ouch. perhaps he could use a little guidance instead of ridicule?
Ok Second thing I wanted to suggest for you Demonx0 is this... "Run-On SentencesĒ: those are a problem so here is how you fix them. Run-on sentences are words and words and words without commas or periods. You have to break up thoughts into chunks of information that the reader can absorb and understand. You do this basically by describing a thought or a statement and then end it (give the reader a chance to catch his breath). Then you give them the next bit of information and if itís a long thought, you can separate the two ideas in that same sentence with a comma such as I have just done in this sentence you are reading right now.
Another very important thing is to break up long-winded posts, or long winded stories. It is very difficult for a reader to tackle a large block of text, reading word after word; sentence and sentence without a break. So what you do is; you break up your thoughts and stories into paragraphs of no more than 3 to 5 sentences each paragraph. Once you have said what you wanted to say in a sentence, start a new one. Once you have 3, 4 or 5 sentences in your story or message, start a new paragraph Ė just as I am doing right now.
Also, take note that you are in no way the first person to have a problem with this. This is pretty much an ongoing problem around here where people post unintelligible messages all the time and I think this probably tries the patience of a lot of other members (which is why it seems that they are cracking down on you too hard. For that I apologize and this is the very reason I wanted to take a few minutes to explain this as opposed to let you go off half cocked after just having your new topic crapped in and a number of members attacking you personally.
They donít mean to be attacking or insulting you personally, I promise. Also, I can pretty much guarantee to you that there are hundreds of other people reading my words right here thinking, ďInteresting, I did not know that.Ē So mark my words, you are not alone and donít take the above comments personal.
Here is how I might have worded your original post or topic, but just a tad bit differently:Hi Guys,
I just got into the whole sport not too long ago and Iím getting the Interceptor Package from http://www.shortyusa.com/. The price was about 100 bucks for the gun, 3000 bbs, a speed loader, and a 50 rnd (magazine). I do plan on getting an AEG whenever I can find some people to play with and have the time to devote to it.
I mainly got the AUG because it was on sale an came with mad bbs. That way I can practice and get some control over aiming the thing. I mainly just want to have a lil fun in the back yard lol, but Iím really interested in playing with teams and other people. Iím going to be 21 in August and I have a van that I can transport, so that way I can get back and forth to different events with other players.
The stats for that gun that I got are as follows:
# Operation: Spring
# Fire mode(s): Manual cocking
# Muzzle velocity: 260 fps w/ .2g
# Effective range: 150 feet
# Ammo type: .2g to .25g
# Hop Up: Adjustable
# Weight: 4.75 lbs
# Magazine capacity: 50 rds
# Length: 31.5 inches
# Comes with orange tip
No to mention, but Iíve always like AUGís anyway, soÖ
The gun I have my heart set on is an M14. I saw one of those on shortyusa also. I will probably pick that one up like I said when I get some ppl together or find some near me already. So let me know whatís up pls and give me some input. Iím an ex PB player if that helps. We played woods ball mainly but nothing too serious. Now that Iím a little older, I think I would really enjoy Airsoft and playing with others who know what their doing as well.
.....so with all that said, (again) welcome to ASF. And please don't take offense to what happened in this thread.
