    I'm surprised you have room for this one - so many hammocks, so much gear, so little time...

    I suggest we take over only the camping/sleeping in comfort section, they will all thank us.

    Recently we had a bad experience with members here trying to "take over" the discussion on another site. Left a bad taste in their mouths and ours. If you'd like to participate in that forum, then please do it of your own accord and do not use Hammock Forums to organize any action involving another website.

    Our mission at HF is to discuss hammocks, not to spread the word or convert anyone.

    I wasn't aware of any "take over" attempt - perhaps an indicator of how much time I have for forums. In any case, I was joking and had no idea anyone would even try to do such a thing. It's certainly not something I'm interested in doing!

    And I didn't think spreading the word was even necessary when the forum already had a subforum for hammocks, either.

    Sorry.

    Jeff is making reference to a time not long ago when someone who was not a part of the HF community posted a demonstration video on You Tube showing how to hang hammock.
    His technique was different than how most folks here tend to hang their hammocks, so he got a lot of negative feed back by people using HF as their source.
    Not a good way to teach or make friends

    So we just want people to thoughtful & tactful in how they share hammock information, especially if they mention Hammock Forums.
    We don't want people who aren't familiar w/ Hammock Forums to think we are a bunch of "Know It Alls" that think we have all the answers
    All though we seam to have most of them when it comes to hammocks
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    No worries, Lori - and no offense taken so no apology necessary. Tim is right about the incident I was referring to, in which some well-meaning HF members encouraged people to post a bunch of feedback on the YouTube page, causing them to turn off comments on the page. Not a huge deal and we're all grown-ups so it's all over now. But using HF to directly affect other forums isn't something we want to encourage. Do unto others sort of thing.

    I know that's not what you intended but it was worth bringing up.
