Guest Post Rules

Guest posting rules

It is simple, anything which is illegal in the UK, US, Europe and anywhere else on planet earth is not allowed and will be removed. Anything which is in bad taste to the main content of the site will be removed, such as porn, racism, threatening behaviour and the like and this kind of posting will also get you removed from the site with no warning. There will be no second chances because is not there for vendettas or to share anything other than dive kit and dive site information. If you wish to contribute  a guest post contact me first at and I will upgrade your account so you can, and then will moderate to insure content does not break the guest post rules.

If your account is attached to spam about the latest pills on the market, or a deal on watches or anything like then your account will be removed and the post deleted.

When setting up the Google map for a dive site it is only things related to diving that are to be included, once done and reviewed I will then include the dive site location on the POI map for satnavs and mobiles so I know the new file to be used and shared to divers will not be tampered with in any way, yet I am not responsible if anything happens to your device after installing the POI map for your location because I do not host the files directly from my PC, they are instead on my site’s host servers and I have no control after I have uploaded them.
