Phone, Mark, in fact everyone

What does it matter if prices are mentioned?

Why the big deal?

Surely the people that benefit from all of this are the carp anglers, the very ones this forum is here for.

Hell as far as I am concerned, Paul, Alex, The ACS boys, BillD and anybody else who I have failed to mention who contributes to the NACA can post prices on here if they think they will be competative. It is in the potential buyers interest to have prices, (it saves them having to hit another link!! :D:D ).

As for the double standards thing,............................... :D:D:D enough said! :D

It's great that we as carpers are getting so many different suppliers of gear.

I couldn't agree more with your idiot comment!! :D:D:D

I think this whole tread is a riot

I bet the tiemco people are wondering why all those 2457 hooks are being sold!

MoCarp- goods or services at a fair price will be good for business - its all about value- we could use a product shoot out feature and I put my name in as a tester!!!! :D:D:D:D

Chris,

Obviously, by rule, your remarks are off base. Some of us don't even want Eruo, what a pain in the arce these posts would be if we allowed "advertising" How hard is it to go to a link?

Phone

Are you objecting to the fact there is a rule that will be enforced for everyone or that you can't go through 700 pop-up adds before getting to the forum?

id have to agree it probably needs to be reworded just a bit :D

as any mention of a product would be blatent .

Yes but Mark,

There is blatent advertising ALL OVER the site, by many people including moderators, it's in peoples signatures, in the main text of threads, why should this place be any different?? <_< <_<

Would there have been the same reaction had Keith posted this in say the beginners section?? If not, why not? :D

For someone to point this out in an e-mail to Keith is the bit I think is a hoot!!! :D

Karl :D

I think the big deal is because it was Keith and not(*********)''whoever you want it to be. Also maybe people feel threatened by the prices..Look around check all sites..Not one person has ever offered a price like this in the United States it just shows how much Alex is into promoting carp fishing here in the states..Just think about it he could double his price and still be a very cheap setup..But he didn't..Putting the price on the board is no different then if you go into the tackle posts and see people selling brand new rod just bought from WB&t for $$$.$$...So whats the difference...I think that is telling everyone on this forum what WB&T and any other Company's prices are..Am i wrong..So i say post all your prices maybe it can save us some money...Why dont we just start a forum so everyone can post the prices of there new items..This way we can all see what is new at are carp stores and what it will cost us..

the difference is, that prices were posted in a section that specifically states no prices be posted . Forgive me, but what is so hard to understand about that.? What goes on in other sections has nothing to do with the section that keith posted the prices in. Once again he posted prices in a section that specifically says no price listing.

Why is there such a problem, that section says no prices to be mentioned what is so difficult to understand it's not because it's Keith so please don't try to start an issue on that please don't stir up trouble. Paul has never mentioned prices nobody else has, Keith has withdrawn Royals prices that should be the end of it if anyone is interested in finding out the prices call or email that particular person ur company what is so difficult about that

It’s amazing how hard it is for people to understand.

You guys are a trip, you COMPLAIN that there are no rules for moderating on the site, now there are rules, someone violates one, gets told he violated it by a mod, and then all you do is COMPLAIN. :D:D:D

The fact that Paul is associated with Wackerbaits is completely irrelevant, I think any of the mods would have sent the same email. He was simply enforcing a rule on the forum (and one that I know has been enforced in the past). Accusing Paul of a conflict of interest is a completely unwarranted personal attack.

Has anyone actually used any of this low cost tackle? Are there any name brands associated with it? It would be interesting to hear a review.

So I'll ask again, would Keith have received the same e-mail had he posted in say the beginners section?

Pat

I posted that Carol has a couple of these low priced rods, I used them when she had a screaming run (she was at the restroom), I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to ANYONE, but there again I would and have recommended the Predetors to many.!! :D

It's just my humble opinion, plus I don't feel as though I have to use top notch gear to catch! :D:D:D:D

Keith

Now that pod looks like a real deal!

Karl :D

All

I have a suggestion for the powers that be, (I can make these now being as I am a CAG member, without some telling non members to mind their own business! :D )

How about a instructional piece on how to post links to other sites where both newcomers, (the ones we are supposed to be attracting) and established forum members can find out where tackle is available.

Either that or just let people post the prices of items they have either seen elsewhere, or know about directly on here.

It seems pretty stupid for the Commercial section to be the only place you are not allowed to stick the prices up.

The tackle section, bait section, etc, have several examples of members posting prices of newly obtained gear, but strangely links have not been allowed in these sections?????

Not COMPLAINING, just asking and suggesting :D

Karl :D

Chris

:D:D:D:D

But in all seriousness, Chris brings up a very valid point!!!

He has no commercial interest in any of the guys who advertise in the NACA, he pays for all of his equipment and bait (well except for the stuff he nicks off me!! :D ).

So is it wrong for him to post prices of stuff he has seen elsewhere. He has no interest other than passing on good news!!

Would this whole thread be here at all if Chris had posted that there was a deal on the Royal site, or if he had posted that he had seen a great offer on Pauls, or BillD or Specialists site???

I am interested as to the 'official' opinion on this................................Phone where are you????? :D

Karl :D

Karl,

You must have missed my response to Chris' comment. The only way I can see around this rule is to keep, on average, 700 spams (with prices) going at any one time.

Phone

I like the rule, I'm the wrong guy for hanging your hat.

BTW Chris did not have a point, Chris is a point as in pinhead.

I did see your reply to Chris, I just thought it was pants that's all.

I wasn't particularly picking you Phone, it's just I saw that one or two other mods were reading the thread at the time I was posting and noticed that they had ignored the questions, I knew you couldn't resist.

700 spams????????? :D:D You need some good software like Chris and I have!!! :D

So Chris can post prices everywhere else except in the Commercial Section? (Where people actually come to find out about products!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D )

Whatever you say!!!

Karl :D (Absolutely baffled by this one!!) :D:D:D:D

Oh you're right about Chris

Karl,

You're not baffled, you're a saddle burr.

I truly love your style (who ME?????). Why hasn't Chris bombed me for my comment with a pm? He's probably gone soft.

Also Brian's comments on the creation of the forum are HERE

I don't think any visitor to this forum has difficulty finding out where to buy carp tackle in the states. Clicking a link really isn't that hard.

Seems like all the other retailers get it? Personally I think the constant agitating is bad publicity for Royal but maybe you guys think any publicity is good publicity?

Just my 2 cents :D
