A number of people have contacted us regarding the requirement to sign on to view the forums. We’d like to explain a little about the forum, and it’s purpose, and match that up a bit with the club, and our principles.
The purpose of the forum is to provide a meeting place for Club members and non-members to talk Fly-fishing and Tying in their own area. The club was founded on the principles of open access to the hobby (or Lifestyle) of Fly Tying and Fishing – without hindrance, prejudice, or clique.
The site is free to all members and non-members alike and that is how it will continue to be managed unless costs force us to do otherwise.
User accounts are required for two reasons:
- With an account you can contribute to conversations – and stimulate new conversations
- With an account we can better manage areas of interest, and protect those of the users
We don’t need your ‘real’ personal information – though a real first name, and surname initial would certainly be helpful – and anything you volunteer beyond that is at your discretion.
We hope that you’ll find some good information, and comraderie within these virtual walls – and hope to see you in the forums….
Cheers! – The Webmins…
