Welcome to The Sand Trap Community
Welcome to The Sand Trap community. We hope you enjoy our blog, forum, and most importantly, your fellow members.
Our basic rules (summary: use common sense and act like an adult) can be found right here. Our FAQ (frequently asked questions) also help, and they are here.
Posting URLs, Spam, or Surveys
If you post a URL to a commercial site within the first several posts you make on this site, you will likely be regarded as a spammer and banned. If you post a link to a survey (often to help with your college class, or your business, or an app you're creating), you will be banned as a spammer. If you're in doubt, send a PM to one of the moderators.
Eventually you'll become an Established Member, and this information will be relevant. We have a few other user groups here as well, like "Forum Leader" and "Instructor/Pro," but for now everyone starts out as a "Member" and will eventually become an "Established Member."
If you're wondering when you get to have a neat-o signature, look at this thread about signatures.
This site has positive reputation (the little "up arrow" you'll see at the bottom of posts, images, reviews, etc.).
Everyone starts with 0 reputation points (members from Huddler started with 10). You can earn more by contributing to conversations, as other members can give you reputation via the arrow at the bottom of your posts. These reputation bumps add points to your reputation, and after you receive a few, any you give to others will count for them!
If you want to learn about reputation levels, bonuses, and more, check out the reputation article.

The Blog that Started it All
Please do not forget that this forum is not all this site offers. If you ask in the forum for a review of a set of clubs, please check the blog first to see if we've done one of our comprehensive reviews. Search the main site - and google or another search engine - for answers to questions (and indicate that you've done so) before asking in the forum.
