********Discussion Guidelines*********
Please note that this area is dedicated to discussions on the history and origins of tricks & effects, props, apparatus, gimmicks and the like. It is hoped that by discovering the history of the apparatus used by performers in days gone by, we may better understand the modern day tricks and props that we use today.

This area is NOT to be used as a review area, but should be considered a source and reference. Any posts that are OFF TOPIC in any way will be removed with absolutely NO NOTICE given.

That said, if you really do not know about the trick, prop or gimmick you are writing about, do us all a big favor and do not post, unless you are actually inquiring about a specific gimmicks history and origin or simply expressing an opinion. Remember, opinions are not to be confused with facts. Thank you.

NOTE: Due to the importance and significance that this subject matter may hold for us, it is most likely to bring forth much debate and possible controversy. That said, while debate is healthy and educational, flaming and rudness will not be tolerated. When in doubt, please [url=http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewforum.php?forum=39&7]read[/url]. ;)
