    I am only supporting one of the Plowsite sponsors, I did not know that it was a crime to do so.

    I can not believe the negativity that some members pose, the site runs smoother without negativity. Let's be adults.

    Blizzard is a sponsor, I am just supporting them.

    If anybody has any questions for me, just IM me or PM me, I'll answer them all.

    No bait and switch, I'll post all angles of any Blizzard equipment that we install.

    Have a great time guys and gals.

    Let's be more positive.

    I have no problem with you showing blizzards products. However when they plastered everywhere, and are hidden under different subjects then say blizzard plow it gets to be a pain. If you wanted to post with say the subject FUSO with blizzard plow, that would be fine. However saying FUSO rocks leaves it open ended, good advertising yes. Just think of the people with 56K connections, all those pictures take time to download.

    ok, there is a difference between a "sponsor" and a "supporter/dealer"

    IMO you are pimping blizzards products too much, 35 posts in 24 hours? I dont mention it unless the topic is brought up.

    just chill out on the pics in every forum, we have a picture forum just for that purpose, the link is here

    I was just allowed back on this site, I had a lot of pent up post to put on the site, so I decided to take some time to get them all out at once.

    I apologize for my rudeness.

    I will limit my key strokes.

    Thank you for the input.

    Yes, Blizzard is an official sponsor of the site, therefore, Jon as a licensed Blizzard dealer, he can post the information he wants to post. If it is too much as far as him posting pictures and jumping in on posts not related to Blizzard, PM jon and let him k now or e-mail me and let me know.

    Arc Burn, if you are a licensed Fisher dealer, yes you can post your information and answer questions accordingly as well.

    I was under the impression that even to advertise for yourself, that you wre supposed to pay a "sponsorship fee"??? I thought that was the reason that he was banned before.

    I suppose that rule has been deleted or changed as well....:rolleyes:

    John,if i remember correctly,that all took place berfore the manufactures showed up,now that they are flipping the bill the dealers can advertise for the manufacturer.
    The part that got me was that Sean never mentioned it to anybody?Do you realize how many dealers are here?

    ArcBurn- if you are refering to my post- it was no a personal attack on anyone- I just thought that this site was simply here for the MEMBERS to help each other out- although I am not sure how we can help since our hands are "tied" so that we cannot even PM or email someone with info on a dealer near them, or a link that might help them out of their particular bind. I had to go back and read the rules because of all the advertising I was seeing lately- eye candy is one thing, but an overload of pics in areas where they don't belong with an advertisement in the signature- according to the rules I just posted- directly from the link for the plowsite guidelines today- states that this is clearly an infraction of those rules. I am not singling out anyone, because there are several members here who have a link to thier business in their signature, some are just getting carried away with it, that's all. Will a stop be put to this? Where are the moderators who are supposed to be here guiding the members on what is and isn't allowed, moving threads to the correct location, and enforcing the rules as put forth that everyone agreed to when they signed up to be able to post?

    I agree with what everyone is saying that we need to live and let live, the site has changed, now its time to move on, but it is hard when the boards are being flooded by posts that should be in different areas, or not there at all.

    I am not out to single anyone out, or to offend anyone, just to voice my opinion because I care.

    you guys are taking that line out of context:rolleyes:

    AFAIK you can tell others about a dealership where they can get help.
    this rule is to keep people from coming on and blasting " come see us at joecrapola plow repair service, we'll hook you up with new plows for cheap' or some stupid meandering crap in their sig's and pm's
