We wanted you to be among the first to know that pbnation.com has been acquired today by a public company, CrowdGather, Inc. (CrowdGather - Find it on Forums)



The largest media outlet for paintball is now part of a growing community that will help expose paintball to many new advertisers and viewers. The purchased of PbNation.com by a public company is recognition that the paintball community is an important and desirable market with tremendous potential.

The CEO of CrowdGather is a long-time forum owner and operator and is completely dedicated and passionate in the believe that forums are an important and vital part of the Internet experience. He has a vision of how CrowdGather will successfully grow pbnation.com and the other communities associated with their team.

We had several companies that were actively pursuing pbnation.com for purchase. CrowdGather was the obvious choice as they have a long-term vision for the growth of forum communities and they recognized the tremendous value of our team and marketshare.

In the long-term, the paintball community will benefit as CrowdGather grows and brings major, national advertisers into CrowdGather communities. This is something that has always been elusive to the sport of paintball but now becomes a probable outcome as pbnation.com becomes a part of a larger whole.

We believe that the CrowdGather team (including you) will be able to grow and improve pbnation.com with the additional resources that will become available by this acquisition.

Thank you for making this the Home Page for Paintball and for your continued support.

All the best,
The Team at PbNation

Just about to post this.... Beaten to it. I didn't see that coming, and I talked to John a lot over the weekend. He never said a word. You can keep a secret John. Though truth be known, I wouldn't have said anything even if he did, but he didn't...

anyhow...

Here's the direct link: PbNation.com has been acquired today by a public company, CrowdGather, Inc. - PbNation

Interesting, even though I rarely go over to PBN, it will be something to see what happens with them now that they've changed hands

They didn't give us any warning either.. I was really surprised... not even in the non public sections.

I can only imagine things will just go on as they will... It's tough when you "buy" a site. When that happens, people usually have the urge to try and recoop their cost and ads are the result.

I don't see much changing right away, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
