Findmall rules don't allow side by side comparison's between other brands of detectors.

It is fine to make comparisons between Minelab detectors.

I am not used to such censorship on forums. Normally they are run for the benefit of the users not the sponsor. Kind of a shame

Forums are run for the benefit of the Forum Owner. They set the rules. All forums have them. Forums that sell sponsorship usually prohibit references to non-sponsor dealers. Likewise a lot of forums forbid links to competing forums. It’s a business.

I completely understand the owner not wanting to upset sponsors but why are we allowed to compare detectors with written text and photos but not in videos?
Do you think the owner believes people's opinions are made more clearly in video?
Don't get me wrong...I have no problem with this rule...I'm just trying to ascertain why it's only applied to video.
EDIT-on re-reading I see you didn't mention just videos...subsequent posters did. Sorry, that makes sense now...no comparisons of any kind. Thanks!

The appropriate place for metal detector comparisons is the METAL DETECTOR FORUM. That’s all he’s saying.

I'm curious as to why my post was moved. I asked a comparison question between the Equinox, E-trac and CTX, all Minelab detectors, and it was moved to the metal detecting forum. Why?

I don’t think this will be an issue because pretty soon everyone’s going to find out that there is NO comparison!

Come on all. The moderators are working hard to keep this an information avenue for Equinox Detectors.
Please cooperate, and do not make comparison written posts,or videos. Unless it is between Minelab products as Laplander has requested..
