I work at a camping store and I am extremely suprised at the bad advice you two are giving Missy. For starters ALWAYS USE YOUR ROPES. If you don't use your ropes you have no warranty and believe me we can tell when ropes have been used or not. You are very lucky if your poles last a storm constantly being flattened, one gust of wind from the wrong angle and the poles will break.
Also the Spinifex brand are cheap copies of every other tent on the market. We get so many people asking us to repair them it's not funny.
Hope this helped
