Author Topic: Who runs this site??
pajeff

Yes, I did find an email address but I am not sure if I should give it out. The owner could make it easier if he wanted to have direct contact. However, why don't you share your concerns here and see if you can provoke a reaction.

Yes it does get that way sometimes and I hope the administrator reads this. Do you have any users in mind?

I am also quite amazed by the lack of administrator effort to clean up the language used on this sight and to temper some of the insulting,threatening,vile conversation that takes place. This is a forum used by all ages,and for the sake of the young participants especially,I would like to see some standards imposed by the administers.

The Administrator gave me this reply a while ago:

"Yes, I am managing this site. Unfortunately resources are rather limited regarding adding new locations. Primary problem is getting quality maps and copyrights for them.

At some point we may switch to a generic presentation of maps, but this is still rather far in the future.

SharpHooks is a hobby and not a professionally maintained site."

I think the site structure and general usability to be very good. How many of you would be willing to offer time to approach the owner and take some/all of the administrative/site upgrade work. I can offer web development and could add local lakes and oversee some of the content. I would strongly suggest a "REPORT" button to posts.

Thanks MR Jeff,
I guess that say's it all, no budget, no control, so it's up to us to keep it clean and keep it decent and informative.
Please no more swearing and, Let's stick to fishing.

Great site!!

I think someone should step up and run this site right!!!

Great job Mr.Jeff

I have just emailed the owner:

There seems to be a little disquiet on sharphooks. Check the post "Who runs this site?". I would strongly suggest a "report this post" button that flags to you so that you can take action. Or you could do an automatic 4 hits and your out. It would be a shame to loose users as the site is very good and well presented. I'd be happy to help, as a hobby.

so would i. this is a great site when everyone sticks to fishing! if a coupd of the more senior users such as myself amd mr jeff etc could keep this site on board if we were given the oportunity.
jimmywits

Sounds like a feasible answer,it wouldn't take much as there are only a small group of offenders. I like the three strikes and your banished approach.
pajeff

No reply yet from the administrator. I suggest keeping this topic to the top of the list. If I get no reply, and it would be a shame if I did'nt, we should find other ways of making contact.

I think that there are a few users who would like this site to be child friendly and to be inoffensive. Even a day one member has the right to express an opinion.

I could be quite critical here and suggest the last post is hypocritical, but what would be the point of that.

There are enough members that would like a "REPORT THIS POST" so can have a more immediate response from a moderator. This is how most chat site's are run. It seems that either we are in disagreement with the current administrator or he has disappeared.

In any case, he does not respond to emails so I think I should write him a letter.

yes bentley you are one of the main offenders, either insiting the young kids to copy you or by just insulting anyone who comes along. leaving this site to the likes of yourself is not the answer.
yes, if someone gets the boot they can come back, but after getting the bootand having to complete the "application" a few times they will get tired.
you are right, some of the kids are the worst offenders but a lot of the garbage they post is in reaction to yourself and others.
why not quit going ourt of your way to be a jerk and talk about fishing. i see you have a post up about steel which i haven't read. assuming it is about steehead it will be one of the first posts i have seen you make that was actually about fishing. if i am correct then keep the fishing stories coming and quit the crap. if these kids are being stupid ignore them. they will go away. they are not as stubborn as yourself.
keep trying mr jeff. we need someone in charge, either the owner or some people appointed to run it.

Yeah bentley, you get me so mad with your retard copy cats that copy insulting comments and post them back!
People like you should get banned from this site ASAP!
You get me so mad, i say things i normally wouldnt say!!!!
And to think about it , your trying to act like senior member, but to me it sounds like a bunch of little girls trying to be keyboard warriors!!!
So leave hurt full comments out the forum and seriously if you got something rude to say and dont like how many broods i take every single day, then seriously meet at the lake.
Cause saying stuff on here is pointless and it just make me LAUGH SO HARD CAUSE IM AT THE LAKE EVERYDAY AND I DONT SEE ANYONE COME BYE ASKING FOR FISHMASTERFLY , OHH WAIT A MINUTE , DIDNT I SHOW YOU HOW I LOOK! SO IT SHOUDLNT BE TO HARD TO FIND ME, I STARE EVERYONE IN THE EYE THE WALKS BYE!

Can't we all just get along??

"I think some moderator control is definitely needed here. I like the idea of the 3 or 4 strikes and you’re out."

Agreed, 3 chances to curb offensive insults (not to be confused with constructive criticism)would be a generous
limit.
cagey

here here, mr grey1. your comments are very true.
everyone has to think before they post . cut out the insults. keep the fish stories/jokes whatever but cut out the bull!
a moderator would help for sure.
