I don't have a dog in this fight really! I have no issue with me or anyone else following the rules of the forum. It's your choice to allow or dissallow "any" post you want.
You (moderators) state at times in this thread that "no income can be generated." Then the above post defines food and personal expenses as "acceptable" income. Note - you define these two elements as income. So in effect you really are creating definitions. But again - That's 100% OK. It's your board.
Just my personal opinion but you should shut down your crew finder forum. Every other board I have been to only limits the "real" commercial stuff.
I think it is this inconsistency (between boards) that is driving everyone nuts and this thread will go on forever.
If I post for crew they will definitely pay for all the variable costs including fuel and moorings, they will be expected to crew on the boat and do their share of chores, they will also pitch in for their food. The discussion of "personal items" is completely moot. I would never share or pool people's personal stuff.
Based on that paragraph I certainly wouldn't post here as it would be in violation of your forum's rules.
