I recently sold a canopy on this site and it was great. I also bought a canopy last week and have not received it, nor will the sender contact me back now. Is there a way to track this guy or purchase ???

your that scared of me????

All you guys need to do, if you were so inclined, was to just ask. Instead you want to run with rumor and innuendo???

You could be more successful but instead you chose to run scared, well I guess it's your ball, so have fun. If ever anyone wants to play at being an adult, I'd imagine you can always find me.

One of my recommendations, or perhaps better said "findings" from researching many users of "Public" forums: Was that the "moderators" need to be extremely mindful of their comments and actions. No one appreciates having their comments deleted without explanation or reason. The recommendation was that the moderators be limited to just using the strike thru feature for most everything they do and in those instances where totally offensive words are used, to delete just the offensive word and in any event in each and every case a moderator does something, they need to explain why it is offensive or has been deleted. As it is; the current state of affairs, has created much derision amongst the users. Worth saying again the moderators need to explain fully their actions they need to be accountable to the users. Otherwise the perception, and rightly so considering the declining user numbers, is that the moderators have their own agendas and hidden motives. But of course many moderators here know better than the rest of us, which is why this site suffers as it does. Too many personalities, not enough public forum.

Other recommendations: were to limit the number of posts any user can make in a 24 hour period, (many "Power" users make over 15, ((meaningless)) posts a day.) and the moderators need to be mindful that many long standing users, don't actually provide any meaning-full contributions whatsoever, but use many of the topical forums for their own social gratifications. Folks, that is what places like Facebook are for! The net result is that just about any newbie to is literally driven away! The idea that users must read and wait for "years" before asking anything and or contributing, just wrong! You have an opportunity to educate but alas the small minority of (tolerated) power users, regularly debase and lampoon as compared with educating.

And of course for those of you that suffer from internet addictions you can always seek help and I am always available to point anyone in a better direction. :)

Thank you for helping me get my stolen gear back. Within hours of posting the information I was contacted by the staff of a skydiving facility that they had my gear and two bad guys were in custody.

I have repeatedly tried to reset my password bu't get a verification email send to my original account. I started a new acct but can't buy anything for 3 days. I was trying to get an altimeter and need it ASAP.... Can you help?

Please respond to

Please allow clients to remove email addresses, phone numbers and anything they feel is personal in a thread they posted. I put my phone number and email address in a thread thinking it would make it easier for somebody to contact me. Now I would like to have it removed. The way your website is currently set up, I am unable to do this procedure.

my rig was stolen recently and ive got a good idea of the prick that stole it. Can you look up a members activity history? or should i just cry and get over it???

Jeez. How hard can it be ? 8) I came here, looking for a person from a google link I found about someone who might put me in contact with someone else from waaay back, old skydiver. I am myself an old fart by now, and I had to register and still can't even post a request in your forum, lol. Anyhow, the link that brought me here is someone with this addy:
That's a googled link dating back to 2013, I sure as she is still alive and well and can get me in touch with Mitch Decatou ;p
Old Norwegian skydiver here from the days when this sport was birthed.

I wrote a review of my R-MAX 148 reserve a week ago and it is still pending approval...

justafix  2018-04-02

I paid $250.00 for an altimeter from the email
the paypal account belong to a Yuri Turci March 10th. There has been no contact since payment was sent. I'm afraid I've been ripped off by way of your site. Anything you can do on you end?

quickdownsize  2018-05-09

Seriously, my first gear posting and the same scammer that is well known to your site is trying to scam me!!! Now I am thinking that you at are the culprits behind stolen gear and ripped off skydivers. So far I am not pleased with your site. I am the real deal skydiver and do not appreciate scamming bitches or their scam websites. What do you have to say about the same scammers hunting on your site? What will you DO about it?
