Hi, my name is Brandyn
I would like to invite all of you to a new Fishing Forum Community. But, of course, don't leave this great website! The site address is reelangling.cjb.net We just got the website up yesterday, so more features will be added in the long run.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you become a registered member!
Thanks a ton and tight lines to all!

Looks good, but....

You shouldn't openly post a forum/link in open chat. If you want to add this link to your signature, that is fine. I noticed you're younger, so like others we give you benefit of doubt. It's great that you started up your own little bulletin board. I hope it works out for you. Will be great to get your imput on here, and join in on the posting. But please, keep the open links strictly to your signature.

Thanks

Well, the reason people may have jumped on you is for a couple reasons if you'd think about it. First, it's against the guidelines to spam your website except in your signature. Basically, you are breaking the laws of the board. You were at least warned/scolded by those on here. You weren't banned from the board. You had a warning. Second, think about what you and others have done (this is only constructive critiscm). This is Juro's baby, his bulletin board. You may be just trying to get guys to your site, but in long run you are advertising your website, competing with the board here. Say it this way. Rio Fly lines has their website, with free postings for customers. You developed your own flyline, and openly market it on their free posting board. It's a conflict of interest. But, they have a disclaimer, that if you pay a fee you may openly advertise your flyline. Now, if you wanted to pay, then go for it. But if you haven't, you've been spamming your site.

So, no hard feelings, I check out the sites personally when I see them. I know some guys on here lurk on other boards, and they may have jumped you because of that. You had been warned on several boards to stop. You have spirit, and it'll get you far. Just tone it down, stay on the straight and narrow, and use ethics. People have told you what you were doing wrong, and hopefully you've learned.

It was no problem Brandyn. I saw you were young and probably new at this game. So I checked out your BB and then let you know what was up here. Hope you get involved here. A great group of people and alot of knowledge on just about every aspect of fishing. Make sure you check out ALL the forums, there are plenty to satisfy any problem you may encounter.

I remember the days (not to long ago) when I was young and passionate about my first websites and desperately wanting someone to check them out. All I can say is keep up the work guys and it will pay off some day. Everything I know about programming has been self taught doing exactly what you guys are doing. Just be patient and before you know it you'll be sponsoring sites like these and be giving others like yourselves a little pep talk!

Thumbs up Wow Brandyn

You've been building the since you were 12???? Dang. I wish we had computers like this back then. I had an old commodore 64 and an old apple/mac. We had to actually write our code/programs back then. Just to do simple tasks on the computer.

I'm not "old", but am 33. Been fishing my whole life too. But couldn't build a site to save my life. LOL. The one's I've built so far are simple free pages. But, am not worried about getting people to it. I can barely keep up with fly orders as is with only word of mouth, let alone having site running full bore.

Good for you all. Just make sure you go about it the right way. Buy some sort of link on here. Ask for help, and see if word of mouth can get you more people. I started out as a charter member of the 3 largest fishing BB's in the Northwest. One I was pulled to by word of mouth from a friend who's a writer for STS. Next thing you knew, it was flooded with posters. Now has some big name sponsors in the fishing industry. Just takes time and being legit.
