If your profile contains a link to a 'pay per click' website or anything that looks like spam, I will delete it

Forum Rules (adapted from Swaylocks Forum Rules- used with permission)


There are no moderators, advertising dollars or sponsors here. I run this show with my time and money; If necessary I step in when/where I see fit.

It's pretty simple - the rules are:

1) Stick to the topics of the various forums.
2) No advertising in The "Surf Talk" Discussion. Sell, promote, advertise etc, in the classifieds forum.

Those are all the rules. Everything below simply plays to forum etiquette.

Some things will make you unpopular:
1) Spam
2) Repeatedly bumping your thread to the top of the list.
3) Repeating yourself.
4) Rudeness.
5) SHOUTING.

Some things will make you popular:
1) Spend some time before you storm in.
2) Search before you ask.
3) Search again.
4) Decent grammar, punctuation and spelling not required but goes a long way in getting your point across.
5) Help groms and newcomers.

Finally, a few good ideas:
1) Don't feed the trolls!
2) Substantiate your claims.
3) Think before you post.
4) Post with a smile.
5) Use your common sense.
6) Go surfing.

Aloha,
Bud

Links- Photo & Image Hosting, Video Clip Production, etc

You folks often ask about sharing your photos; I don't know if I'll ever be able to update this forum to accept photo uploads. I've looked into it several times but it is clearly beyond my skills- waaay complicated (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=74505 )

Members here can always drop me a note ( bud at wavelust dot com ) with photos then I will optimize/upload to my server for you.

Otheriwse in this topic I will provide some places on the www where you can do it yourself for free. Please feel free to add your suggestions and comments
