Re: Fly Fishing Survey
I am not sure how to handle surveys of our forum members as yours is the first I have ever ran across. I wish that you would have have considered asking the forum management prior to placing a link to a survey into our threads with your first post. This would have been the proper approach especially if your specific intent when you registered was to post a survey link.
I hope you understand my concerns here, now instead of our determining how to deal with surveys prior to them being posted we have to work backward to find the policy regarding them. Trying to determine whether your post is part of a graduate studies course requirement or if you are actually a marketing entity looking to membership as a tool gives me an uneasy feeling about such posts. We have a system for taking polls for members to use and I would prefer that you take that option until I have discussed this with our management. I am removing your link until we sort this out.
For the time being I would suggest that you ask members who would be interested in participating in the survey to contact you via our PM system and you can provide them the link privately.
Sorry for any inconvenience,
