While we don't have any firm criteria, we follow these general guidelines...

Finds must be significant, and plausible.
Finds / posts must be RECENT.
Images must be hosted on the TreasureNet server.
Posts with great stories are more likely to be selected.
If the post is one of the members first posts, it is less likely to be selected.
Finds must look good in the banner
.



I Don't do all the Banners But
besides the above , I Like "Rare to the Banner Finds"
not necessarily "Rare according to the Books"

Books can be wrong.

& YES Your Banner Nominations Do Count.
But I Personally don't count the word "Banner" in a Post
only the ones in Reports.

Also the find must be found by TNet individual YOU.
Making matters worst, is nominating your own find for the banner.

Please note *

*

For all Future Banner Submissions

""willingness to share information " will be added to the criteria.

This does not mean members need to I.d. their hunting Spot.

This means if questions on the Object ,
including but not limited to extra photos of the object etc. are ignored.

Banner will no longer be considered.

Banner Recipients should show that much Appreciation to those who voted.
and not be Hit & run Members

new rule addition

Banners will not be considered if member does not give a variety of
posses of the Find in question
, preferably but not limited to When it is originally Found.

We like Insitu and / or at least plenty of Identifiabley cleaned poses
so each Banner pic can look unique from what else is up there.
if your like me & don't do insitu that is fine.
we also prefer pics of all the days finds.

no body goes out , finds a banner coin on the first dig and goes home.

if you do, I want your luck :unhappysmiley:

Seriously, We want entertaining Posts to make banner !

Take us with you on your Hunt.... at least in Spirit :thumbsup:
This is Banner we are talking about.

------------ADDITIONAL----------------------
Since seeing several Requests We are going back to the Old Way &

Since Members seem to mainly Vote for posts in Today's Finds .
Posts in Other Forums like Beach & Shallow Water, shipwrecks,
North American Indian Artifacts, gold prospecting , bottles etc. do Not require the Same numbers of votes. and may be bannered just by Moderator prerogative. to remind you they are there.

And as Marc would say; "Shake things up a Little" :laughing7:

Attention Members Updated Rules for Banner Threads

please Note.

Because of recent Unfortunate happenings.

If you receive a Banner & remove your pictures after.
your banner & right to future Banners will be Removed !

If You post something & Do Not wish to be considered for Banner
Say so in your opening Post, Or PM Me & tell me to Ignore banner votes on your Find.

It saves Both of us Time, & Prevents Confusion & hard feelings.

Our Moderators take longer naps this time of year, so be patient.:laughing7:
Not all finds are banner worthy.... nominate a great find, and maybe it will make it up top.

I don't use tapatalk. Joe_dirt. Look to the right hand top of your post, in the tan area. There is a little red box there. The tiny print say "nominate banner". You'd just have to go the the original poster's item, click that box and fill it in. It took me forever to figure this out. I couldn't read the tiny print! Of course I assume you can see the little box in tapatalk. Otherwise, I use a big old fashioned mainframe computer.

My apologies a mod did not see your question. You can always pm a mod, we will respond.

On Tapatalk you highlight the post like your going to quote, then in the upper right hand corner is icon of 3 dots
You hit it and menu opens up and one choice is report. Just hit it then type your nominating post for banner.

Any questions just post here and I will respond.
