Author Topic: Revised SharpHooks.com Forum Policy
Alex

In light of recent developments we decided to make some changes to the Forum Policy.

Our main objective is to maintain a friendly, productive and open environment for people to talk about fishing, share their experiences, knowledge, photos and stories.

Unfortunately our forum (as in fact most public discussion boards on the Internet) became a target for frequent flaming, trolling and other attacks.

In order to curb these problems and to restore balanced and healthy discussions we are introducing two new principles:

- You may not post messages that may upset other users.
- You may not sow discord in the Forum.

From now on we will exercise a zero-tolerance approach and will not hesitate to ban users which violate (or even get too close to violating) the Forum Policy. Please think before you post!


Thanks for understanding,

Alex Gruntsev
President,

Nice to see. I hope it will succeed.

A big thanks for that - I recently read a thread where a guy made a simple statement, and was jumped on bad. Not only did this make him want to leave, it made me want to leave, and I just got here.

I love sites where I feel a sense of comraderie, and no question is too stupid (cause I ask quite a few of those ).

Policies are only good if they're enforced in a timely and consistent fashion.

It remains to be seen if Management here is capable of doing that.
