A Note on this Disclaimer:

Much like there are Friendly Local Gaming Stores (FLGS) within the board gaming world, I want Start Your Meeples to be a Friendly Local Gaming Blog. As such, I practice a policy of trying to be as open as possible. Below is a whole load of information about a whole host of topics to do with the technical “behind the scenes”. It’s not the most interesting page in the world, but it should hopefully answer a few questions.

A Note on Opinions:

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are strictly my own.

A Note on Photos:

The majority of the photos on this blog are taken by me, most on my dining room table, on the floor, a footrest, or a friend’s gaming table. The majority of photos thus far have been taken using a Huawei P9 Lite, Huawei P20, iPhone 7 or a Canon 650D. Most in fairly poor lighting (so sorry about the blurriness). They are in context and thus should constitute being used under fair usage, as I am talking about the games I am displaying. If however, for any reason, you want me to remove a photo please just drop me a note. You can do this from the contact page.

A Note on “Luke”:

Yes, I am a real person. Yes, Luke is my real name. Yes, I write all the content on this blog myself unless otherwise stated. I try to post every other day, but this may change on occasion.

A Note on Content:

All views expressed are my own opinion. I am not paid for any reviews, nor am I paid for writing these articles. At the moment this blog does not earn me any money and is not monetised. I never set out to offend with anything I write and just want to share the love of gaming.

A Note on Questions:

I’m a pretty approachable guy, so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

A Note on Emails:

The Follow Functionality on this site is a WordPress widget. What it does is, if you sign up, it will send you an email asking you to confirm your subscription. You will then receive an email when I post. Please note that I do not do anything with your email address.

To contact me you do need to provide an email address, but this is just so I can respond (the contact goes through a form to avoid crawlers from spamming my email address!). If you email me, I will not sign you up automatically to my mailing list. That just wouldn’t be cool.
