Where the skys are so blue!
Yep - I need a break guys - so yes I did turn it off and deleted my profile and contact info for awhile. I made an announcement 3 days ago, which I don't believe the rules even require? I was open and honest that I was joining the Tethrd team. Since that time I have had a few imply things about my integrity and character that is a little hard to swallow. I really don't care if people see things my way, or if they use different gear - I do take exception when people start implying my INTENTION and MOTIVES.

I have poured 1000s of hours on the phone and email helping folks with everything from trail cameras to modifying sticks and never once did I ever tell anyone the gear I was helping them with was substandard or wasn't the best. I have spent 1000s of dollars buying gear from a lot of venders, and freely offered my feedback and gave reviews. I have even sent folks gear so they could hunt - for free. I am also pretty sure I had a small influence on a few finding and joining this community.

I joined Tethrd pro staff because it will allow me to talk to more people about saddle hunting and because they (Tethrd) VALUED and SOUGHT my input. I actually have the chance to test gear from a hunters perspective and be able to have some say on future designs. I am not going to be dissuaded from that opportunity because a few have a problem with it.... get over yourself.

For the folks that I've communicated with and have been able to help - that's what it is all about. I will continue to offer my opinions on what does/doesn't work for me.

Finally - to the moderates and to RED - as far as the rules. I know them now and will play along.... or not. However, it would have been kind of nice to tell me I was being added to a group and being blocked from making any comments on product reviews. Don't think that would be asking too much and I am pretty sure I have at least earned that courtesy. But hey, I know its YOUR site.
Glad to have you back! Make sure to add that Tethr'd line back to your sig. Looks like it got deleted somehow in the shuffle.

I thought he was the grumpy grandpa that everyone hated to love having around.

@DaveT1963 about a month ago their was an announcement that popped up on everyone’s screen containing the new rules.
could have been, I wasnt a prostaff or vendor so doubt I'd pay attention. Like I said I know the rules now

Phase 2 will solve a lot of issues. Be patient.
Phase 2 wont solve the overarching problems that cant help but begin with a growing website that exists WITHIN a growing aspect of bowhunting (mobile/lightweight).

The real problems are egos and self glory needs. I point the finger in no direction, it's to all.

I have been here since 2015. Not a poster. Pretty much just use the site ( it's great by the way) and I think thats a primary original vision of the creator of site.

Don't forgot the reason we are here. It's bigger than "prostaff" "moderator" or whatever title you want to associate by. We all have a common love of the Lord's creation. Stay humble.

Lol....rules don't affect them too much Dave....nobody is really talking about Trophline.

JUST KIDDING.....but seriously, I'm just kidding....
I know :)

It is telling that in two years a certain mast cracker has posted more than most original members, #4 All time poster. I don't know how he finds the time posting and popping pimples.... buts it's almost uncanny how much life experience hes been able to acquire.

I raise a toast to my favorite SH mirror gazer.

I just caught up on this thread and there is one thing that I wanted to highlight. I have read several people state that Vendors are severely limited on what they can post and because of that many of them don't post anymore. That really isn't the case. There is only one section of the forum that they can't participate in. They are able to post in the rest of the forum about anything except their products. They are several members of this forum that are pro staff and contribute within the rules on a daily basis. @Nutterbuster, @Jefferson10940 come to mind as well as several others. If any Vendors have stopped posting it's because they have chosen to do so.

Like has been said we are working on a solution and reviewing other forums as examples, we'll get it figured out.

I feel like it's too easy to take what someone says about a particular brand of gear and then check their signature to see if they are affiliated. If your an adult and don't think pro staffers will be biased towards their companies to a certain extent that is beyond gullible. It seems this has become so much more complicated than it needs to be.
