Welcome to the CyberAngler Forums!

We hope you find these forums of use and invite you to participate often. To ensure our forums are always useful, enjoyable and safe; we ask you follow our rules and regulations as described below.

I. Forum Rules

  1. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting.
  2. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated.
  3. Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". If members note an issue which contravenes our forum’s our rules and guidelines, please bring it to the attention of a Moderator, or the Administrator.
  4. Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
  5. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed.
  6. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline () image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.
  7. Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or colored text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts.
  8. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; "Help me!", "Report", " Bait", etc. Examples of good titles include; "Fishing Report - Marquesas Tarpon", "Tackle Problem – Frozen Drag on Penn Intl 50", etc.
  9. Members are welcome to use the Test Forum for general "test purposes". These may include checking signatures, testing a link or image, etc.
  10. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. You may post a message to one of the Classifieds forums to sell a product or service, but abuse of these forums will not be tolerated.
  11. The administrators and moderators of reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to us and not users.

II. Policing

  1. CyberAngler operates a three strikes policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.
  2. Arguing with team members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.
  3. Users who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to contact the administrator. The administrator’s decision is final. Contacting the administrator over warning matters should be the very last resort.
  4. Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.
  5. NOTE: An exception to the three strike rule applies when users personally attack others users, moderators and/or administrators (via any method) with insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.
  6. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While CyberAngler may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence.

May I post my videos to on different region forums? I would like to share my videos with other regions. I ask because i was banned from one site for spamming by doing this. I do not sell anything. I do ask if the viewer liked the videos if they could subscribe to my you tube channel and I will return the favor.

Posting to different Forums may or may not be OK depending your content and frequency of your posts. I saw you posted to 2 different forums. If you did something similar on a weekly basis, that should be okay. But we always reserve the right to change our decision, and prune or delete posts, at our sole discretion.
