Ok
Russ aka go4em I will send you a PM, I am going to make you a Mod.

as for this thread

Robs intentions were good, after reading the threads that got this thread posted, I can understand why he posted it.

At the same time I can understand why some members are unhappy and feel that we have applied unjust censorship.

What Rob wanted to say is go easy on people when they post a size or weight, use a judgment call is this a new fisherman, are they young, not all fisherman can estimate a weight and especially a newbie.

As to censorship the only thing that will be censored is shark pics of Dead Sharks, I may allow a picture of a edible Shark like a Mako but I am not sure we will deal with that at the time of posting or they can PM me.

Now the main problem I see is the Mods and Users lack Tolerance and all of us must have some Tolerance, if we don't then we will always have little issues turn Big.

I am in no way saying that you can not correct someone on weight,size legality and so on, yes we should say something, but we do not need to say it to the same person over and over.
If they are breaking the law yes we do need to be a little more direct if it is continuing to happen. But lets help to teach and educate not brow beat.

Now if a discussion gets heated as they will sometimes show no disrespect or Threats and use that brain to put your words in a constructive argument so it helps to teach or show someone a better way, you will help no one if you do not make a valid point.

Mods we have to allow people to express themselves and we must have the Tolerance that I have spoken of but I want all the Mods to know that you guys do a Great Job and we will never make everyone happy but we do need to reach the majority.
I know how frustrating it can be some days with the stupid nit picking but it will always be like this when you place such a large amount of different people together.

As for people afraid to post for back slaps, LOOK in any open community for it to work all must speak and if you feel you are being jabbed unfairly PM me, but also keep in mind this is the internet and we need to have a little thicker skin online because many people are a little more rougher when saying something to someone online, many of these people will not be so direct in person believe me, I will say this about me is that I am the other way I am way more direct in person and alot more tolerant online. So those that hesitate to post you will not help this forum that way the more you speak the better, this way I know how to let this Forum flow, I gage it by the ones who post so if your not posting I can not know how you feel and telling me in person is not enough the other members need to know that some of these issues exists.

Frisky you made alot of sense with the posts you did and I hope others read them there is a correct way of disagreeing and a incorrect way and in no way do I think you stepped over the line, to the contrary I think you made a couple of good arguments about the controlling of the written word and I do not want to see this site go that way all should be able to freely express as long as it is with in our rules.

This does not mean we should walk the edge though I believe all should by now know the limits.

Oh one thing that does bother me is some serious posts end up getting stupid comments posted and I know alot of the time the members are trying to lighten the mood, but like this thread which had some seriousness, look at the last 2 pages was it necessary, some threads need to be left alone and no to the jokes, because we want that thread to achieve something positive.

Here are some stats of the site:
Over 1000 uniques IP's a day of that about 500 to 700 are registered Members per Day

about 25000 to 35000 page views per day

35 to 40 new topics per day
and around 300 to 400 posts per day

The Data base alone is 320 MB that is a huge Data base

So you see we need to to have tolerance there is alot of people in and out of here.

To all I hope I made some sense,Please let me know what you think

To be a mod you need to be able to speak, read, and write English.

You cannot give mod power to a pot stirrer. Tommy knows better.

:oops: You are absolutely correct Tommy, 1 word of brevity can deflate the importance of what is being said. I (as one of the offenders) apologize. Keep up the great work on this site.

WOW!! Fer a minute there, I thought this place was going the way of FSforum. See how well that worked out for them? [sarcasm]

Too much moderating can be worse than a lil jib jabbing. Thank you Tommy for having the wisdom to understand that.
