I know about the woman who is a disboard member and a big seller on Ebay. I plan to patronize her in the future since her embroidery machine rocks. Both her Dis name and her ebay name can be found in the disboards. But she can't advertise here. The Dis doesn't want to be involved in any way where they could be liable for fraud, etc. I know that disers are great people, but the boards need to CTA, or there won't be boards. I think that is the difference.

If I haven't made any sense, I apologize for wasting people's time.
No time wasted. That is a good analysis of it.

The policies involved are

Quote:
FOR SALE For sale ads are strictly prohibited on any of the DISboards. Anyone posting such ads will have their post deleted. This same policy applies to links to your ebay/auction listings . "For sale" posts includes requests for donations (see below). In addition, "Vote for me" posts are not permitted on the DIS. This includes requests for support in an online contest, sweepstakes, lottery or other event designed to yield personal gain.
and

Quote:
7. ADVERTISING: The advertisers/sponsors who you see on the DIS are carefully chosen. While we welcome discussion of them as well as other businesses that you have information or questions about, if its determined that you are using the DIS to promote a commercial venture, you will lose your posting privileges. This includes choosing a username/signature that refers to your business. In addition, links to the company's website will be blocked. Also note that we do not want the boards to be used for solicitations or for requesting referrals. Requests for advertising can be directed to webmaster@wdwinfo.com for consideration.
To answer the comment about DISers utilizing the reported post function, yes, we do receive many of these when a violation is seen on the boards. The Meets threads are under the same guidelines as the main forum.

There is a big difference. The difference is offering advice is free. When services and money become involved, that is someone using the DIS boards to make a profit and that is what is not permitted.

DIS apointing that people dont have any thing better to do with their time than "report" other people.

The guidelines are in place to keep the DIS boards a family board and not a place for people to make a profit. If you do not like the guidelines, you need to contact admin@wdwinfo.com.

If it weren't for the DISers who do go by the guidelines and take the time out of their day to help us by reporting posts this would be a very different place. There are rules almost anywhere you go so this is not an uncommon thing. Posting on the DISboards is considered a privilege and it can be taken away if someone insists on not following the guidelines that are set and posted.

PMs are not screened but if someone reports a PM then yes, the moderators and webmasters are made aware of it.

Do a search on eBay for "disney hanging storage", instead of "fish extender". You'll see a good number of FE's for around $15 or less.

I would never consider this a board for people to make a profit.........
I never said i had a problem with the guidlines...............................
I still think it sucks that people feel the need to "tattle"..................
Continue on with the Fish Extender making.................................

Here is my new FE!



I was kept awake the other night by barking dogs from 2:00am until after 5:00am, so I thought I would put my time to good use.

I decided to retire my first FE and leave it hanging in our Sun Room when we cruise in May.

Here is my new one! I think I used my time wisely.

WOW LuvTheEars - That is awesome!!!

Where did you get the embroidered DCL logo? Or do you have one of those fancy-schmancy sewing machines where you can download "stuff"?? My aunt has kindly offered to use her fancy-schmancy machine to put names on my FE but if I could find the logo somewhere too.....

Great job!!

Yes, I do have a fancy-schmancy embroidery machine. I'm honestly not sure where the DCL logo came from. You might try eBay. Do a search for Disney Cruise Embroidery.

I was just going to say something similar.

If you search on ebay for "pocket hanging storage or hanging pocket organizer" you will find a bunch of disney ones for super cheap.

I just found Lilo and Stitch, Chip n Dale, and Mickey.

Okay, here's my fish extender I made. We decided to do iron ons for the pockets and the top part. It worked out well that way. We each got to pick our fave character for our pocket
