Advertising and posting of links
« on: February 25, 2008, 08:20:32 AM »
We welcome anyone who wishes, to post their web page or advertising banner, as long as it is compatible to our core interest, sawmills, forestry, and woodworking. This is a free service since we are operating this as a community forum,  and are not looking to profit or pander to anyone. All we ask in return is a link back to us to help us grow.

As stated above, we will not charge anyone for advertising since the costs of a forum are actually very low, and it is a service and benefit to all members. If you would like a banner add placed, contact KEA...if you want to link your website, just add it at your profile as part of your signature. We hope this can help others, plus allow trade between forum members and guests who see and can use the links provided.

Way to go Sawmill and Timber, I joined another TimberForum on line and was actually booted because I put a link to my website on the forum page..  Apparently they got real offended real fast, cause it was off like right now... come to find out the adminsitrator was a webmaster and apparently felt real threatened by my tallents or something, but I'm only interested in helping others.  By the way my portal is www.BlackHillsPortal.com and my sawmill site is www.RoughCutLumberCo.com

Will be back and support this forum.. love to provide imput and learn..

This is a great service.  Free advertising is the best way to help a small business grow and to help people new to processing their own timber to get to know the small businessmen. 
Thank you very much for making this offer that will help everyone in this forum.
I am one of the people that is tired of the big box stores that have crushed the small businessmen and applaud the unselfish opportunities that this forum offers.

I'm on another site with pretty much that attitude but sent in $20 because I get that much out of it.  Got told I shouldn't have done that.  Seems I paid for half a year all by myself.

Another forum regularly cries about needing funds to operate....basically lying to and then stealing from the gullible to support a forum owner who is too lazy to work, but has found a wonderful way to live, by holding pity parties to obtain donations and advertising which he pockets......and you can tell from our tone, how we feel about thieves.


This forum is self funded, costs less then a meal out a few times a year, is legally owned by 3 of us, and as far as I am concerned, owned by all who use it, free to all members, and that is it in a nutshell......we are a small group who believes integrity is doing to the right thing no matter who is looking and not being ashamed to say it anytime.


We may not have a lot of members, and the post count is low, but you won't find a better group of guys who tell it like it is.  ;)

I got into it because I sent him a burl that was worth well over $200 for his personal self and not to be sold.  He turned around and sold the piece without letting me know.  I would rather have had him send the think back to me at my espense.  What a jerk.  I even was suckered into the purchasing of a quart of syrup that was auctioned off when he had the first round of suckering everyone with an auction.  That syrup cost me $115.  Alice was about to have me locked up in a padded room.

He had sent me one of his hats.  I still have the hat as a reminder of my being a sucker.

I ended my connection when my business web site was corrupted with their own advertising link that took people away from our page and landed them on his. 

This was all done when I trusted them to take care of my web page.  Little did I know every page ended up having a DIRECT link to his site and this was all done without permission and without payment for using my site, which is something he charged everyone for to the tune of $15 a month just for ONE LINK.  This jerk put a link on EVERY page I had on my site!  That is theft!

HEY guys met you all awhile back when you were just trying to get this forum up at a sawlex expo, back when I was trying to and still am trying to get some exposure on my chainsaw mills, well I got busy and hadn't had a proper website at the time, but it sounds like a fair trade... and I hope to change your headings to where you'll have a dedicated csm section, not all of us can afford them big fancy bandmills...lol but someday
