General Message Board Rules
« on: February 10, 2017, 06:03:48 pm »
Rules, rules. Yeah we have to have a few rules but they're simple and straightforward so please read them and help make this site a great family friendly place to be.

Here is the 2 step process for breaking the message board rules.

1: You will be temporarily banned until such time as you have read and understand all of the rules.

2: If you continue with this behavior you will be permanently banned from this site.

Rule #1

NO discussion of politics

Rule #2

NO discussion of religion

Rule #3

Topics and posts should be related to primitive archery in some way. If you want to discuss other topics in life there are plenty of other places on the internet you can go. This place is about primitive archery. Discussions on the use of post-industrial materials (yes that means FG) are discouraged.

Rule #4

This is a family oriented site and we want it to be child friendly so the use of curse words or foul language is not tolerated. Keep your language clean and respectful.

Rule #5

Play nice. Name calling and personal attacks on others character will not be tolerated. If you have an issue with someone, take it off-line and communicate with them via email or some other way but not here. You’re welcome to disagree, debate, even argue as long as you remain respectful.

Rule #6

No one is allowed to sell or promote their products on the Primitive Archer Message Boards or the products of others unless it is under the paid classified ad section of the board.  To be clear, only paid advertisers can have a link to their commercial website, all others are prohibited.  You are still allowed to TRADE under the trading post

Rule #7

No banners will be allowed as signatures.  Signatures can be a quote, name, etc.

Rule #8

Only paying advertisers (in the magazine or on the website) will be allowed to have links on their signature to their home page and only paying advertisers can post or have links to their websites.
 
Rule #9

Please note that by posting to this forum you Give permission to “Bigger Than That Productions LLC” the owner of PRIMITIVE ARCHER® magazine to utilize your photographs, digital images, and descriptions in the publication of the magazine and it’s online counterparts.

Rule #10
Things seem to have gotten out of hand here with people cutting in on others threads or starting threads of their own, aggressively attacking members or those in charge.  This is disturbing to many and we have decided that it will stop.  Anyone doing this will be subject to the 2 step process.

It has recently come to our attention that some people seem to think it's just fine to have multiple accounts.  Unfortunately we disagree.  We didn't have any defined rule about this before but we do now therefore.

Rule #11
Multiple accounts are not allowed.  If you have multiple accounts then pick one and delete the rest.  If you don't and are found out then all will be banned permanently.  If you do have another account but don't use/remember it then please just advise a mod or an admin and we will try to sort it out

These rules apply to the entire message board but you will also find individual forum rules stickied inside the forums stating what is allowed and what is not allowed in those particular forums.  Please make sure to read those as well.

Play nice and enjoy.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Something new?
