Rules of Engagement

Hi and Welcome!

I created this safe, private place to share my photos and stories. I see so much abusive behavior online. I can only continue sharing stories and photos privately.

Access to info in my site means you agree to a few basic things.

1 – Information is private. What I say here, stays here! (You may share short, credited text excerpts, linked to PunkPioneers.club.)

2 – NONE OF THIS CAN BE REPRODUCED, shared, sold, etc. That means no sharing, no downloading, no screen recording, no screenshots, no reproductions, no copying text (other than a line here and there ONLY to promote my work!), etc.

My photos, audio and my text copyrighted. NOTHING I create is in public domain.

Exception: information online, such as song lyrics and article quotes, with attribution and links.

3- Questions, suggestions, comments: ONLY send direct messages in  TwitterNOT Instagram or Facebook or whatever.

Or write me directly: PunkPioneers.club/contact.

Tip to ensure delivery: write a descriptive Subject header in emails. Then spam catcher won’t think it’s junk.

4 – You don’t do Twitter and you don’t do email?

Well, there’s ONE of me. I’m doing the job of at least 10 people: photographer, graphic designer, web designer/master/code wrangler, blog writer, marketing copywriter, course creator, podcast/audio/video editor AND creator, social media do it all and store owner on another site who preps and orders, signs and ships photos and another site I’m teaching how to create compelling storytelling images, sites, ecommerce stores and more using art concept and digital tools and tech. Yikes!

I have to research, buy, learn, use and troubleshoot ALL the tech all by myself.

THREE very complex sites. I can’t be on social media and messaging all the time. Deal, ok? Thanks.

4- DO NOT TAG and DO NOT COMMENT in threads online or posts AND expect a response!

I need to be contacted personally and directly per #3.

Some people actually get nasty and snarky and spread lies because they hid a question in a comment in a punk group somewhere and I’m supposed to respond and didn’t see it. Well, eff that cos who the heck do they think they are?

I love sharing stories and inspiring people. I just need a bit of kindness and understanding from everyone.

Thank you! Keep on rockin’!

Let’s have FUN! Life is too short. My focus is on good memories, in the past and creating them now!

Also, I sell many images, including some not yet posted at Punk Pioneers.com.

If you don’t see what you want, drop me a note at PunkPioneers.club/contact. Thank you!
