    This guy is pimping the shit out of his business with no respect to the owners, members, or vendors of the forum. If you want to build something and post a pic of it, that's awesome. What's going on here is this member is promoting his business which is a direct violation of the rules. To the best of my knowledge, he has not cleared this with Eddie or Cindy. They probably have many good reasons for their rules, but one of the obvious ones would be that it's not fair to the vendors here that DO PAY to be vendors on this site. It's also no different than someone ignoring your 'no soliciting' sign on your door at home and bugging you about what they want to sell even though you've posted for them to not do that.

    Ahhh....I see now. It kind of sounded like he was selling his product ... which I obviously do get why that is a No-No. Especially to their other vendors that is disrespectful. So obviously if I built something I can post pictures but if I want to tell people what I used as far as equipment or something like that(or in his case him telling about the tube bender company and their website) I would have to check with admin first? The only reason I say this is because the information you can find on the site about bending stuff it would be useful.... And I would want other people to know what I used as long as I'm not trying to sell a product nor would I ever do that. Not sure if that makes sense but hopefully you get my point. And obviously I get the rules and would never tried to do what he did.

    If there are any gray areas, always check with admin first. But tons of members here have built stuff with details without an issue. We even have DIY threads for stuff like that. Here's one example: http://wayalife.com/showthread.php?1...st-DIY-jk-mods

    Now this member clearly had intentions to show off his business, it's in his screen name, his signature, and his pictures which is a direct violation of the rules.

    I like that he tried to sound casual at the end with "while we're on the topic of tube benders, what's your favorite?"

    Rumblebee3, don't over think it. You'll be just fine. I could tell you the brand of every product on my Jeep and who (if not me) installed it and I wouldn't be breaking any rules. Especially in How-to threads (as WJCO mentioned), the more detail the better. Just don't try to sell us something.

    Duly noted! I will always check if I have any questions or doubts. Thank you for the example and yeah he was definitely going pretty far on the "hey look at my stuff and what I can build for you" scale sorry for the Newbie questions but better to ask now and not be sorry later...

    Like I told WJCO.... I would rather ask questions now then be sorry later. But it makes sense now. Thank you guys for the help understanding it. Just don't want to be a rule breaker.

    Tube bending/Custom Fabrication

    Geez, I was unaware that there were paid vendors for the group, and my "business" is just a side gig, so it's nothing huge. But I under stand that it's still a violation of the rules.

    I'm an administrator for a large club in the state of Georgia and we too have paid sponsors, and advertising rights for members are limited.

    I'll gladly remove my company name from the pictures, that's no issue.

    Can't wait for the "I'm not promoting my business" explanation. Ignorance is bliss!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
