We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.

FORUM & CHAT RULES

WARNING SYSTEM. Warnings will be given out when the rules or guidelines below are broken via our warning system. These are necessary to keeping TA the great place we all know it to be. A PM will come with that warning explaining which rule it relates to. We recommend that you reply to the warning via PM. Depending on the nature of your reply, the issuing staff member may then remove the warning (you'll get another PM) with the reason listed as "Being a good sport." Multiple warnings can result in a permanent suspension.

NO OBSCENE LANGUAGE. Please refrain from using any vulgar language that would offend someone else. Inappropriate words will be edited. This also applies to User Names. Accounts with inappropriate user names may be deleted.

NO OBSCENE MATERIAL. Please, no pornographic material or links to it. Inappropriate posts will be deleted, and the users access will be revoked.

NO POLITICAL OR RELIGIOUS THREADS. Please, no political or religious threads or debates unless directly related to fishing or outdoor legislation. Inappropriate posts will be deleted.

NO PERSONAL INSULTS OR ATTACKS. You are free to disagree with others, but if you stoop to personal abuse or attacks, your post(s) will be deleted. If you ARE insulted please report the post, but DO NOT retaliate.

PROBLEM WITH SITE POLICIES/STAFF ACTIONS. You are free to disagree with some site policies or actions that our staff may make. If you have a problem, send a PM to a staff member and handle it that way. Complaint topics/posts regarding these policies/actions will be deleted.

POST IN THE APPROPRIATE FORUM. Please read each forum description before posting to ensure you are posting in the correct forum. Off topic posts will be moved to the correct forum by our staff in order to help our members find topics easier.

NO DUPLICATE OR REPEAT POSTS. If no-one answers your question or responds to your post, please "bump" it (must be after 24 hours) rather than posting it again. Posting the same thing more than once will result in deletion.

USE APPROPRIATE TITLES. Titles like Help Me, or I'm Stuck serve little value in a forum. Try to be short but descriptive when submitting your post. Likewise, try to be clear and articulate when posting your questions, answers, or comments. Unclear messages/posts only add confusion and may delay responses to your post.

NO ILLEGAL SUGGESTIONS. Respect the copyrights of other people, websites, software and printed media. Please no pointers, how-to's, advocating any illegal activity. Posts regarding such things as warez, cracks, etc. will be deleted. Offenders and advertisers of illegal material will be reported to authorities.

ACCOUNT LOGGING. From to time the need to log on as a member arises. We do this to investigate spammers and sometimes to investigate member access problems. We can not see member passwords.

NO ADVERTISING/SPAM or SOLICITATION. Do not use this site or our Private Messaging system as a re-direct or gateway to another site for the purpose of collecting click income or advertising for vendors that are in direct competition with our site sponsors including vendor-sourced Ebay auctions, or to promote/raise the membership of a competing site. Links to things that help our members out are allowed unless it turns into promotion to buy something from a direct competitor offering the same product as of any of our current Supporting Vendors/Site Sponsors. This site reserves the right to determine what is and is not SPAM. Any SPAM will be immediately deleted and the user will be PM'd. Linking to or giving contact info for ANY FISHING GUIDES who are not sponsors is NOT ALLOWED. You CAN say their name, just no links or contact info.

Current Sponsors:
  • DJ's Marine Electronics is our Exclusive Marine Electronics Sponsor. Links to any other marine electronics dealer are not allowed.
  • ProTek Customs for custom vinyl and also reel powder coating.


SPONSOR FORUMS. Do not suggest other vendors in a Sponsor's forum. If a sponsor does a group buy, do not suggest other places to do the group buy. It is the sponsor's group buy, not yours. Your post will be deleted and it will be a strike.
