Default Sherriff Lorax...

I'm sure everyone has now noticed I have accepted a position as a site administrator here on the forum. I met up with Dave M and we talked and worked out our squabble which we both agreed it was long time coming. With he and shutupandfish being the only mods to cover the forum lately he went to the powers for help on the board where kOdiak appointed me to the position. Some might not like this but please hang with me, if you have a problem with this PM me and we can talk.
I've discussed what I want to do with Dave and shutupandfish and there was no opposition, nothing big as the forum is home to us all and I'm sure everyone here can agree there is some cleanup that needs to take place. Here are the things that as of right now we will be moderating and this is not debatable, if anybody has problems with this I'm sorry but this is the way it is!

1) There will no longer be allowed disrespectful profanity outside of the Off Topic section!!! F-bombs, c-word, and any other words that we feel out of place will be edited right away. What happens after if the same person continues will be discussed in private. The Off Topic section is the Romper Room of the forum where you must be registered to read so lets keep the language out of general population. If you can't say these words in a public restaurant or gathering keep them out of general population categories!!!

2) Bashing of new members and members you don't agree with in the Colorado Fishing Report section or any general population sections...has never been allowed and never will...suck it up or start your own thread in the Off Topic section about your disagreement!

3) Inappropriate avatars and signatures...this is a no brainer...keep it clean or they will be changed for you!

4) For new members... posting reports blowing up small ponds, rivers and others spots you heard about from other member will not be allowed here and if you are doing it just out of spite you will be banned without question! Be considerate to our fishing waters and the members that fish there...it's a lesson well learned!!!


These items are nothing new as they have been law here since the start of this forum, they have just been laxed the last couple years and now we need to clean it up. We have a lot of new members registering here which is the lifeblood of the forum but few are posting and I feel it is because of the items above. We have a lot of members here that have young kids that fish and I would like them to be able to come into this forum to look and learn without seeing a bunch of objectionable pictures, language and arguments. Parents, teachers and guardians should not wonder and be scared of what is being viewed here in the general population categories! We need to help these young people out since they are the next generation of our sport, if you don't want to help don't be a problem! These are not new rules but things that have gotten out of hand lately, we all have been allowed to speak our minds which is only right but there is a proper way to do it!

One other thing I want to do but will wait until I hear what you the members feel about it. Warning...I do want to do this so if there is favorable opposition I will rethink the matter. I want to get rid of the Brag Board Thread!!! All though the pictures are always great I feel this thread takes to much away from the report section. I would like to see all this info go back to the report section where it really belongs, the pictures and a small report with nothing you don't want revealed like hotspot, bait or whatever but a general proper report. The members that have been here for a while know what I'm saying, if you are unsure ask me in a PM. Post up your feelings on this matter please. One other thing I would like to do is start up a Blog Category. We have some great writers here on the forum so I would like to start a place they can post up. It will be open to all members, blogs will be submitted for OK and if accepted put in it's own thread. Please let me know your opinions on this and we can discuss it's ups and downs!

Thank you all for making this a great home forum for us all, let's grow it and welcome all to come! I would also like to welcome all the older member that don't come here anymore for all the above reasons to please come back and give it another try!!! Where's Mr. Ed?




THX Dani!!!

Thank you! I hope you're wrong but guess I'm ready for it. I would like to say one more thing, we here on CF are one big family and family members squabble, it's going to happen and then they all sit down and eat at the same table! I have made a lot of friends here, some on the left some on the right, some well liked some not so liked, but there is not anybody on this forum I wouldn't go out on the water with...well one and he knows who he is...no not you bug!!! You're kewl!!! Continue to have fun but please just keep it clean with respect for the women and kids as they are members here also! Also remember...this is a FISHERMANS site, not a FISHING site. A site for fishermen(or fisherpersons) to come to have fun and talk, not just a site about fishing! Things that make you go...HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!

Thanks for stepping up Tony. Good luck with the brain damage that is sure to result.

Everything but the Brag Board Thread sounds good to me. I like seeing the fish porn, and if I were to guess, I would say that a lot of that would go away without that thread.

Good luck Tony, I'm sure you will handle it. Now you have 2 full time jobs to take care of. Glad someone stepped up and doing something about it, thanks.

Tony need some additional clarification about rule #4. Is a poster allowed to include the name of the body of water in his report. The other way I read it was only certain bodys of water will get protection from the eyes of the forum. If the second part is correct who determines if using the location name is appropriate for the given body of water. Theres so many different types of anglers who target different species and Im sure everyone has areas they dont want to see a report about.

Tom, recently we had a couple instances where someone came into the forum and just blasted some small ponds and places just out of spite. The one time was a member that did the same on other sites and was banned for doing it so he decided to try it here. You can spot these kind of posts at a quick glance. In the past we have had members get ticked at other members so come in with pics and reports of the other members favorite waters and blast them with nothing but contemp. It is these types of reports we will be watching!

Did someone say brain damage?...5 years of moderating and I am perfectly normal!!!!...yeah that one Tom brings up will be a fine line glad I dont have to make that determination...gonna be a few butt hurt people there always is...but in the end this isnt a democracy...the mod has final say like it or not...there's always FXE when you dont...

Good luck Tony! Glad its you and not me!
