Exclamation Forum Rules, The Short List;

Recently we have had a rash of persons who joined the forum with little intent of actually participating as a regular member.

What exactly does that mean, 'regular member'?

Regular would mean about 99.9% of our active posters and readers, in other words You.

So what does it mean when I say 'persons who joined the forum with little intent of actually participating as a regular member'.

It means that persons who register for the purpose of promoting their own Blog or Business interests or, to run up a quick post count for the purpose of listing items for sale, are violating the rules of the North American Fly Fishing Forum. These rules were established long before I became a member here and are still enforced.

Along with the occasional garden variety spammer linking to a web site we have way too many Fishing Guides and Blog owner / operators who join up and post for the sole intent of using this forum to their own gain. Gain can simply mean to direct more traffic / hits onto their own web presence without any intent to add to the discussion or to the general quality of the forum.

Perhaps the most frequent offender would be the persons who register in order to list items for sale in our Classified Section. We have up to this point been as tolerant as possible with people who use the forum primarily as a market place but this will change. We are not a Sales Place for persons who are not regular contributers to the discussions here. If your only postings on the forum are to the classifieds you may find some things deleted in the future.

Here are a couple of the old rules that apply to what I have just said.

Meaningless or Short Posts
NAFFF requests that all members refrain from posting any message considered meaningless, very short or non-sense. If you express an opinion, please support that opinion with facts and useful information.

Post Count Manipulation
Multiple or repeated posting, or any other manipulation, in order to increase your post count is not allowed.

Here are a couple that everyone who joins to endorse their Business or Blog should read!

Promoting Blogs Persons who have established a Blog having its own Internet Address and who post to a thread specifically directing members to view their blog May be Deleted / Banned from using the forum in the future.

Promoting A For Hire or Items For Sale Business, This Would Include Guides and Outfitters etc. If you operate a fishing orientated business that's a wonderful thing. If you post to the forum in a fashion that has the appearance of 'Promoting Your Business' the Moderators or Administrators will give you a clear choice; Become a Business Member and have the right to promote your business while supporting the forum, or have your threads deleted.

I do hope that these rules are clear.
