Title of this section???
« on: January 21, 2012, 04:44:38 PM »
I took a lot of heat off certain members of the Airgun BBS for titling this section 'Obsolete', as well as a few members of Planet Airgun.  :-[ :-[ :-\


In hindsight, maybe 'obsolete' is a bit cruel, as it might insinuate something that is no longer used, which is not what I meant.

In my defence, I deemed obsolete to be summat that is no longer made or sold.

So maybe 'Vintage' would have been a better title, but then you would not call an airgun that had it's production stopped last year as 'vintage' would you?

So should it be called the Collectors or Vintage section or whatever....or should it remain as 'Obsolete', now that I have explained my reasoning?


If anyone has any other input or suggestions...then please lets hear them.

Thanks.

Obsolete:

According to the oxford English Dictionary

adjective

1 no longer produced or used; out of date

verb

cause (a product or idea) to become obsolete by replacing it with something new


I think thats in line with what you have been thinking

So that would suggest that 'Obsolete' IS actually the CORRECT term, if you overlook the no longer used bit.


C'mon guys, I want to hear your thoughts, as I really enjoy the airguns of yesteryear, and love collecting and using 'em, and so I don't want to offend my fellow airgun collectors or enthusiasts with the title of this section.
