    Forum Etiquette

    Please post for our new members as well as you old guys what is good etiquette.


    1. Introduce yourself
    2. Tell us alittle about yourself
    3. Don't make your first post "where is your hunting spot"
    4. Be apart of the forum. Add to some current topics
    5. If there is some details about a certain hunting area PM the person, not in public, you will likely get better info.
    6. When someone gives you info that your looking for Thank them.
    7. And most important! We are all here to help each other. Be respectful

    This is somthing that I didn't do at first but always try to apply to my threads now. When you post a story or pics on a thread try to go back and thank those people that complemented you.

    Very good point, I'm guilty of not thanking on numerous occasions.

    Thanks IKIC!

    Here is a suggestion. How about if we have a forum header that is specifically for new members to introduce themselves. Some other forums have that. It would help a new member recognize that is appropriate to introduce ones self. Just please, please, please don't call it the "FNG" section…pretty crass.

    I'm not sure how stickies work (I'm showing my age on that one), but could this thread be attached at the top of this section, so new members see this info. I think this might help in the future.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)

    It is sad the other thread had to be deleted. There were a lot of well thought out posts that could really help new posters.

    I think the golden rule is a good guide, even on forums.
