New Rule Plus 1 (please read)
« on: September 22, 2008, 06:27:27 am »
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. 

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. 

4. 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 but we do now. 

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

One of the things that I have always liked about the primitive archery forums I frequent is the friendly and supportive atmosphere. If it isn't like that I don't go there!

Even if we don't always agree about everything, here we do this for fun so why not disagree in a friendly way? The vast majority of people who are into primitive archery are decent folk and PA is a good example of that generous and basically respectfull approach. I hope PA stays that way.

Same here. I haven't been around much in a while. It's a shame some people have let go of the great atmosphere this board has always had.

I support this completely, Marc.

bear67, most of us here have already been to those sites, and it got old. If everybody plays by the rules this site will overload with archery knowledge. And all the Mod's are human , too, so, guy's and gal's help us out. Thanks for the kind words, Ahnlaashock.

Sounds like pretty reasonable rules pretty much

i havent noticed anything like that on this site. Thats one of the reason that I love coming here the most no one seems to attack anyone else. Just possitive feedback and helpfull comments. Lets keep it up, and these rules sound like a great way of keeping it that way. Cheers!

Marc,  I totally agree that this is a good rule.  One thing that has always bothered me is that when a person starts a thread on a topic, someone will start talking about something totally off topic, and suddenly everyone is replying to the new topic instead of the original.  If you do not have something relevant to say about the topic, start your own new topic.  Thanks.

Like Shooter, I must have missed something. I admit I spend most of my time in the Knapping section, but I do read a lot of the bow threads. I also have received nothing but good advice and have tried to share the same. I have learned a ton on PA and don't want it to change. If something was headed south, I'm glad you are taking the necessary steps to make it right.

I'm glad to hear so many people say they must have missed something. It means that everyone is being kind and that the occasional issue hasn't turned us into a bunch of arguing, whining old hens. I think it is funny that some people over the years have complained that we are too nice and should be more honest. Honest is their word not mine, I think of it as rude.

YA I haven't come across any of that stuff. I visit this site daily and read and read as much as i can and to be honest this fourm is one of the major things that have me interested in bowyery. I'm still looking to make that first bow but i know that i will have all the support and information i need from this forum. Thats just the vibes i get from this forum.

Just got back online after a year or so off. Guess I've missed a thing or two. I myself have been guilty a time or two of posting when the 'experts' have it under control. I'll definately keep a humbler attitude toward it. Btw hey all its good to be back.

y'all handle this issue a lot better than i would have.  a co-worker says i am not very diplomatic about things, if that tells you anything.  i am shade-tree bow-maker.  let me tell everyone here in this community,  i learn from bit and peices of knowledge found in this community.  i go to it everyday.  i would be none to happy if it closed down because of those that would violate this community's rules of decency and decorum.
