As you may know, in the last few weeks, we migrated from the http://www.SouthCarolinaAirsoft.com domain to http://www.AOSC.us. Nothing on the forum has been altered and only the domain name has changed.

The original domain name has been a staple of the AOSC since its inauguration. A person outside of the AOSC has owned both http://www.SouthCarolinaAirsoft.com and http://www.SCAirsoft.com. Upon the conception of the AOSC, this person allowed us use of the domain name free of charge for an indefinite amount of time. He would however, remain the owner of both.

Some months ago, a forum user was banned for violating forum rules. Personally knowing the owner of both domain names, he contacted him, and in an attempt to lash out at the AOSC, convinced him to merge both AOSC and SCAA domains. An agreement was reached that would force the AOSC domain to redirect to the SCAA. This agreement was made without the consensus or knowledge of the AOSC members or governing council. Fortunately, the owner of the domains afforded us enough time to find a replacement.

To aid mobile users, http://www.AOSC.us was created a year ago as a domain that redirected to http://www.SouthCarolinaAirsoft.com. It is shorter & faster to type, and easier to remember for new players. Therefore it was quickly adopted by many as the domain name to use to reach the forums. Because of this, it appeared to be the natural replacement. Consequently, effectively immediately, you should always use http://www.AOSC.us to connect to the forum. http://www.SouthCarolinaAirsoft.com will no longer direct to AOSC forums, and instead connects to the SCAA website.
