    REVIEWS ONLY to be posted in the Sticks & Equipment Review Section
    - The Subject line will clearly name the equipment, including model No etc of what you have reviewed. This will have the added bonus of helping when peopl search.
    - If you are sponsored by the equipment you are reviewing, state this first
    - If you sell/retail/distribute the equipment you are reviewing, state this first
    - If you received the equipment as a donation/gift/loan please state this as well
    If a post is made in the Sticks & Equipment Review section that is not a review it will be moved to one of the other sub booards.

    QUESTIONS ABOUT STICKS - Have you got a question about sticks? Please post them in the Sub Board Stick Questions

    QUESTIONS ABOUT OTHER STUFF - Please post your equipment inquiry in the Sub Board Other Equipment Questions

    QUESTIONS ABOUT GK STUFF - Please post your equipment inquiry in the Sub Board Goalie Gear Questions

    General Note - If you intend to 'keely' a member please do this with dignity, respect, understanding and above all compassion.

    Guide for posting a review.

    Subject: Be Specific. Include Make/Model

    Message:
    Relationship to item being reviewed. Example
    Relationship - Sponsored Player
    Supplier - this helps people know where you got it from. Example
    Supplier - Joe Blow Fencing Company

    Keep the review to the facts, and if quoting from other sources ie the advertising 'blurb' please indicate this in italics and quote the source. The idea of the review is to give readers your view NOT the advertisers view.

    I will link a few of the very good reviews that have been done by forum members as guides to help with writing one. However if unsure please ask for help.

    In closing since this is your review there is no need to ask for other peoples thoughts, people can post that they either agree or don't.

    Just an Idea for reviews, maybe a supplementary part if your putting in the supplier maybe put in a few places with the actual price for the product so people know how much it is. Or even a price section of the review for the same means.

    For general stick/equipment queries, use the forum's search facility to look for any previous occurences of that topic/item. This can not only save you time posting unnecessarily, it avoids duplication of answers already posted.
    Be as specific as you can in your query and if it saves on spamming or repitition, why not PM a specific member you think might be able to answer your question - Ie, if you know a member owns a Dita stick, and your question is about Dita sticks, why not PM them? That way, you can get a totally personalised answer from someone who will not only be happy to help but also glad of the attention! lol This helps avoids spamming up the main forum keeping it clean and concise.
    Obviously don't abuse this though, we aren't personal shoppers and do have lives outside the forum. Most of all, the more effectively you use the forum, the more effectively it works for everyone.
    Thanks.
