    Welcome to the board. Correct me if I’m wrong on this guys but I think you get a cool tag above your name if you can prove that you’re a bjj purple belt from a credible organization. Who did you train under?

        Welcome to Bullshido!

        As you're in the UK, you might be interested in joining the throwdown group, which aims to keep people updated on UK throwdowns (basically an open mat, if you're unfamiliar with the term). Last one was in Farnborough, next one will be in Belfast (date still to be confirmed: post in that thread to have your say on when it should be).

          Welcome aboard mate. Tell us more about The Forge.

          If you're interested, speak to a staff member about getting a sexy 'BJJ Purple Belt' tag by your name to let people know you're better than them ;)

              Check out the Matt Morton thread to see why you shouldn't post your certs online.

              Send a PM to a member of staff and they'll arrange it for you.

              To post pictures you'll need to upload them and use the insert image button

                If you've got it online, post the URL in img tags. I.e, this:

                Code:
                [img]www.puturlhere.com[/img]
                Or alternately, when you reply, scroll down a bit first. There's an 'Upload Attachments' option, where you can add the picture file to the post directly.

                    No no, dude don't get me wrong. I wasn't accusing you of being a fake. What I meant was that some of the certs he faked look like they came from other people's certs that were posted online.

                    That's what I meant ;)

                            Oh damn. It appears I owe you something of an apology. I say "something" because I would have removed your comments if you were a white belt. However, as it states in the stickie I wrote for the Advanced Grappling Discussion forum, or AGD, the more skilled you are in grappling, the more leeway you have in posting in AGD.

                            Bottom line, I would have left your posts in AGD if you had a purple tag.

                            I'd suggest contacting either Wolf, Phrost or JKDChick to verify your BJJ credentials. They are site administrators, and are the best staff members to contact regarding this matter.

                            Welcome to the site. Please accept this half-assed apology.

                            I'm not exactly known for my diplomacy although I'm confident you never noticed. Ahem.
                            Shut the hell up and train.
