Hi All, I would like to take this opportunity to remind all members of the forum rules (new and old members alike!). We've seen a number of members over the last few months using the forum in what I believe to be an improper manner, often with a confrontational approach. As a community we have a great opportunity to share all aspects of the experience of fishing and related activities. The rules should be common sense however I would urge you to familiarise yourself with them to ensure you do not get penalised. Forum Rules TackleBox.com.au is not the appropriate medium for personal or private vendettas. This forum should not be used to attempt to resolve personal problems with fellow members, suppliers, service providers or anyone else. Please email them directly to attempt to resolve in the first instance. Please try to keep postings on-topic, do not steer the thread in another direction without good reason. If required please start a new topic within a relevant forum. Please use the most descriptive title possible when creating a new thread, ensuring you search the forums first to ensure posts are not duplicated. Duplicate posts may be deleted or merged. Be respectful to your fellow members, this is a friendly and great environment; we wish to keep it that way so please treat others as you would like to be treated. Moderators may, if felt appropriate move your post if it becomes more relevant / pertinent to another part of the forum. Please remember that moderators are volunteer helpers that are here to ensure the forum runs smoothly. Please respect this if they have to contact you/edit/remove or add additional comments to your threads or posts. Should you have any issues with a moderator you must contact the forum administrator Contact Us. Discussions about moderator or administrator actions are welcome in email or local private messages, but should not be placed in the public forums. Please keep your language clean and decent. This include personal inflammatory language as well as obscenities. You agree not to hold TackleBox.com.au or its members liable for anything stated within the forums and that messages posted at this site are the sole opinion and responsibility of the poster. Postings that are designed with the intention to drive traffic to a member's site, or affiliated sites will be removed or edited, as the moderator(s) feels appropriate. Trolling will not be tolerated. Members identified with more than one account will have their accounts merged. Any member who deliberately sets up a false account to troll will be banned. Members are not to post obscene, vulgar, racist, offensive, or illegal posts, links, or images. Posts containing such content will be removed and could lead to a warning or a ban if necessary. Advertising of goods and products for sale is allowed, however, this is limited to the forum entitled "Trading Post". This can be found here:- http://www.tacklebox.com.au/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=3. Business Members Before advertising any business or service on TackleBox.com.au, contact the administrator. Any posts deemed to be advertising material without the consent of the moderators or administrators will be deleted. Signatures are a great way of promoting your online business and we encourage their use on the board and within profiles. However, please keep signatures to a maximum of two lines. Service providers using this function purely to promote their own wares without adding value to the community are likely to be removed and/or edited. Please seek prior permission from the administrator prior to advertising your service (See point 1 above). Service providers are prohibited from starting threads primarily to promote their business, product or service. Examples of which may include (but not limited to) vacant rental properties, new products etc. Pleasecontact the administrator to seek permission. Breaking the rules Administrators and Moderators will give infractions to members who break the rules, an individual occurrence or continuous breaches of the rules will affect your posting rights and severe repeat offenders may be banned from the site.
