Policy added to the list....Admin Please remove poll..

Should a new rule/policy be added the the list of policies to posting here include:

Anytime you post a picture of a bow you have crafted it must include the three profiles of a bow braced, unbraced, and fully drawn.

I don't know if it needs to be a policy but it would be nice to see. With wood bows and self bows specifically a full draw and unbraced pic will tell a lot about the bow. Braced pics show the beautiful profile of the bow but doesn't necessarily tell you much about its performance...although I still like to see the braced pics.   Pat

I like it as an idea, helps a lot with seeing what the bow is like, but not sure about having it be a rule. Lets keep it simple.

You guys are right, having to many rules and policies can get annoying.

Heck no its nice to see the bows but to tell someone that they cant post unless, "insert your preference" is to say the least, wrong. Why would be tell anyone how to post? Next we will vote on how they have to make the bow! COME ON

I don't think we need a policy like that. Hopefully we get good pictures when the author can, but I don't think a policy is in order.

Elkslayer,
   You came along and posted that comment 25 hours and 3 mins. After the other two post, saying it was a bad idea.

A vote on how to make a the bow could get interesting. Once you stop and think about that one, you could say anytime you read a book, watch a video, or ask someone else for advice on bow building. You are in fact taking their vote/opinion on how you should craft a bow.

It is asking a lot, for people to post a full draw photo.

A full draw photo will show, if indeed a bow has been tillered correctly, if the fades on a glass bow are to thick, ect...

It will relieve if the bow is truly a good preforming bow.

Ever seen a glass R/D longbow that appears to have huge hinges at the fades? That's because it does...

Yep, you saw the light quickly, onelongriver   ;)  - if we started down that slippery slope, the next thing you know folks'd be telling me I had to know what the "hey" I was doing - before I went to posting my bows/pics -    :eek:

On glass bows(and all wood lam bows) you can tell a lot from the unbraced and braced pics because the lams and the layout are engineered and will follow the F/D curve that was engineered into it. Wood self bows are a totally different matter. You start off with a stave that is at best relatively crooked and with lots of irregularities. The unbraced pic will show the side profile you begin with and can tell you if the bow is being overstressed along either limb. The braced pic will show the profile but the limbs are usually not the same and any irregularities will keep you from taking measurements to check positive or negative tiller(in many cases). When the bow is fully drawn it shows if the tips are ending up at relatively the same place, plus or minus a bit from having the bottom limb(the one that gets the most stress)a tad stiff. This is the only way to see proper tiller in a self bow.IMO!   Pat
