The posted that Jeff moved to this thread from the thread that Shakeylegs started was not specifically targeted at Shakeylegs. Sorry if it looked that way Shakey. It was just a comment. Jeff and me have talked about this in some depth. I can see both sides of the coin on this subject. So I am undecided on where I stand on this. Here are my thoughts.
We started this forum because everyone wanted this hammock forum to open. I agree we needed a hammock forum on the web where we all could talk hammock stuff. I though the reason we started it was so everyone could post there reviews, tests, and homemade gear here on this forum for everyone to see so that we would not have to jump around to 6 different hammock web sites to try and find what we were looking for and willing to share. This way it would all be centralized on one web site. That was my though on why we started this.
Now the other side of the story. I can also see why others do not want to share there web pages and not post all their info on this web site. I will use Jeff as an example because he has an awesome web site and because his web site is a very good example. Also because I know he will not mind. Jeff's has put a lot of work into his web site and if I were him I would be very proud of it and I am sure he is. So I can relate to why he does not cut and past all the information he has gathered from his web site on this web site. He wants people to visit his web site as would I if I were him. I am not saying this is what Jeff is thinking, but what I would be thinking if I were Jeff and keep in mind I am only using his site as an example. Jeff did not tell me this so do not think that these thoughts were his. This is just and example.
So here we are with a dilemma (maybe not) and I can see both sides of the coin and would like some inputs on this. I don't care which way we go with this. It would be nice if we could have everything on one web site, but then again I see the other side of this too. I did not mean to make it look like I was going off on Shakey when I posted.
