So here I am checking my notifications to the chagrin of Eclipse, and I see an add on the side that had the letters "CAP" in that order. I click on it, and it takes me to a forum.

I know Facebook is good with their algorithms to basically reach CAP members only, but I still don't know why any forum would pay for advertising.

Just thought it was...strange? Could just post a link on the CAP group, which currently has ~7,500 past/current members.

The pic is of the top of the forum and inside that is the ad from Facebook.


I don't know who they are... Else I'd post Death To CAPVine on my siggy >:D

It's not bad, more of a news/blog deal so far as I see. Nice format and interesting videos.

Tango Neutralized, stand down gunner!


How do they expect to generate any traffic with their uniform section crammed down at the bottom?  >:D

Although I did get a kick out of this post by one of the admins.

After looking around it a bit, it seems to me that it's more a site for Captain Awesomeness, who I must assume is a cadet even though his profile says he's 106, to hear himself talk. Nothing of any real value there, and if it weren't mentioned here, it probably would remain unknown to all of us.

Most likely. They have 56 members (was 55, had to register to see the stats), but I was surprised that they actually advertise on facebook...
