Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Sea Fishing Angling. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Sexual - Racist - Religion
    We do not allow posts that are sexual or racist in nature or those which refer to or promote a particular personal religious or political standpoint outside of the normal historical discussions concerned with metal detecting this also includes the use of controversial, political or sensitive issues within avatars, signature images or symbols used within the forum.
    Please respect the original poster`s topic and stay on topic with any replies. Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. #
  2. Offensive Posts
    We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice. We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules.
    Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything and consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
    Topics related to Personal Grievances is prohibited and has no place within the open forum, if you have issues towards a member or the forum generally please contact a Moderator or a member of staff.
    One final note, Please Please remember to stay on Topic and not Hijack, any such replies will be removed without warning! #
  3. External Linking
    Any commercial links are strictly prohibited.
    We do not allow advertising or promoting of other forums through text or active links this includes Facebook pages / Groups and Blogs, If anyone is interested in a reciprocal link please contact mrix. We also do not allow registrations where members purely want to use every post to promote their Youtube Channels, this includes personal channel links and asking members to subscribe to their channel. We no longer allow the linking to Facebook Groups within topics or signatures as we feel these groups are like forums in their own right. Creating a topic within the forum which just links to an external topic elsewhere like a blog or facebook group is prohibited, this is unhealthy for a forum and generally gets confusing.

    You are allowed links in your signature that are sea fishing related but it is expected that a link back from the website would be reciprocated. #
  4. Avatars
    1) Rotating and flashing type avatars are prohibited at the Sea Fishing Org etc.
    2) Please do not post Avatar images which are Sexual, Hatred, Propaganda, Religious or Political related. #
  5. Finally
    We might find it necessary to remove a topic and place it within our pending forum while any issues within that topic are ironed out, the thread will then moved back to the open forum. We also will remove reply`s we feel are off topic, please respect the original posters topic and stay on topic!
    We reserve the right to change, amend and add to these rules at any time without prior notice, although any changes or additions may be made known within the forums.

    The content of all posts including the text & images is the copyright of the original poster and may not in any way under any circumstances be reproduced anywhere without the explicit full consent of the poster and/or the forum owner. Failure to gain this permission is a copyright infringement and classed as plagiarism.
    When a member notifies us they wish to remove their account a 48 hour cooling off period will take place, if the member still wishes to remove their account this will be honoured but the topics or posts made during the members time here will remain on the forum but under a heading of " Past Member ".
