What is ArcheryTalk.com?
Archerytalk.com is the premier archery forum on the net.  Unlike many archery forums ArcheryTalk.com caters to all types of archery.  Whether you shoot 3-D, indoor spots, Olympic recurve, or bowhunt there's something there for you.

Who Owns ArcheryTalk?
Terry Martin sums it up in his own words:

"I, Terry Martin, own and manage ArcheryTalk.com and ArcheryHistory.com. I am also part owner of Martin Archery and continue to design the bow line and advertising. I started Archery History when I read so many sites and posts with misinformation. We are also in contact and recieve input from other manufacurers in the industry. I have designed compound bows since the introduction of the original bows (Cougar, Ocelot, Bengal, Firecat, Rage, Onza, Jaguar, Scepter, Lynx ect.)Over the years I have also collected hundreds of bows and created a large library. Archery History and Archery Talk is a site designed for reference, to help archers answer questions and solve problems to keep them in the sport and for all to have a good time. It is very important that a new archer do well at the sport. If they don't enjoy archery, a new archer will give up and try another hobby. We always encourage all manufacturers and archers to participate. Hope this helps. If you need more information just let me know."

Although the site is owned by Martin Archery it is not manufacturer specific.  Unlike other manufacturer ran boards your post will not be deleted just because you post threads about other companies products. 

How do I  post a pic/add a avatar/edit my profile/ect....Questions on board specific questions can be answered by clicking on the FAQ button at the top of the ArcheryTalk page.

What is TTT?
TTT is short for To The Top.  When a member feels a thread is important he posts ttt which causes the thread it go to the top of the page, where it is more likely to be noticed by other members.

Why do some of the envelope icons have black dots on them?
These are posts in which you are subscribed, usually by creating the thread or posting.

How do I become a Senior Member or change my user status?
User status is based on your number of posts.  You can change your user status yourself by editing your profile.

What is the Soap Box?
The Soap Box is the area for you to sound off about current events, discuss politics and religion, post the latest joke or funny picture or anything else not related to archery.  Discussions there can get very heated at times so if you are thin skinned or easily offended this area may not be for you.  That said, remember that this is a  family site and many children frequent the site, foul language or abusive behavior will not be tolerated by the moderators.

Why is my birthdate in my profile December 31, 1969?
This is the result of some bug in the system.  Many members have the same problem but there is nothing you can do about it at the moment.  It seems to have appeared after the board was down for a few days to be moved to a different server.

Why are some of the letters in my post replaced with ***?
The ArcheryTalk board software has built in, automated filters that replaces any profanity with *****.  This is an automated process and although it is pretty accurate sometimes it censors words by mistake.
