BCFR Forum Rules
Please read the rules thoroughly, all members need to know and follow
then to avoid disciplinary actions and to make this community enjoyable for all.
When using the BCFR website, you agree by joining and participating in this
forum that you acknowledge having read and agree to abide by the following
1. Post padding - New members Please Read: We have had some
members signing up for a membership, then posting fluff to get to 20 posts. We
and the members are always patrolling this and if you decide to pad your post
count in the manor, your fluff will be removed without notification. If post
padding continues, you will receive a 10 day ban. This is a member participation
website and if you do not intend on contributing, please do not register.
2. Usage of foul or degrading language or posting of obscene or sexually
explicit material will not be tolerated.
3. There will be no promotion of any website or business; ie, sales,
marketing, business, etc unless approved my admin or moderators, period!
External links in posts will or may be removed at the sole discretion of BCFR
and its moderators. These rules also apply to members signaturs and profiles.
4. Solicitation of donations to any group is prohibited without
permission from BCFR Admin.
5. Generalizations regarding any specific race, color, creed or
nationality: When discussing sensitive topics, as there can be many regarding
our fisheries, understand that although some criticism of individual interest
groups is acceptable, generalizing about any particular race, color, creed or
nationality in a negative manner is absolutely not acceptable. Although in all
of the interest groups that partake in our fisheries there will be specific
individuals who might fish illegally, unethically or irresponsibly, we will not
allow generalizations that portray entire interest groups in a negative,
demeaning or derogatory manner based on the actions of a minority within that
group. Such statements are inflammatory and irresponsible and will not be
allowed on the BCFR forum.
6. Usage of the forum to verbally attack, insult, slander, slur, degrade,
defame, threaten or make sexist remarks to any individual will not be tolerated.
BCFR members agree to keep content tactful, civil and respectful.
7. Respecting the Moderators, if you have a concern, issue, question or a
suggestion please do this in a respectful avenue, discussion over private
message only. Myself and the moderators will be enforcing this and again, it
will be done in a respectful matter. All members, if you feel someone has
violated this rule please contact one of the moderators through PM ASAP. Also
this goes both ways, the moderators are not immune from this rule.

discretion, be referred to appropriate law enforcement or Department of
Fisheries, along with information about members allegedly involvement in illegal
11. Replying to a thread: When you are replying to a thread be sure to
keep it with in the topic title. If you have information, tips or something
associated to that topic then we want to listen. If you reply to a thread with
information that is not associated with the topic, this is called "High Jacking
a thread". When this happens, the original thread gets off track and the person
that originally posted the topic gets information he wasn't looking for! This
rule is strictly enforced! If you feel a member has High Jacked your thread
please report it to a moderator!
12. Posts of a political nature are prohibited unless the content has to
do with issues specifically pertaining to the Fisheries and Oceans. Forum
members may engage in civil discussion and debate about such issues. The thread
will be closed by the Moderator if, at any time, the discussion ceases to be
Failure to comply to the rules and policies of the BCFR Forum can result in, at

members from future forum participation in our community. BCFR reserves the
right to act in the best interest of the site outside of and including the rules

Fishing Report Posting Rules
1. Posting a Fishing Report: First off, please start your report with the
date. Some of you might have noticed the mods change the topic by adding the
date to you report already and with new report posting rules we are hoping this
will change. Start your fishing report with a "April 22, 2008 - your title
here" Very simple and easy to follow. Now, if a couple days later you are
reading this report and you had just fished in the same location, please start
your own report in a new thread. It much easier to read and to find.
2. Take the time to read the title: If a poster starts a topic, please
respect the title and don't hijack the thread. If you aren't sure of what you
have to add to the topic, please start a new topic.
3. Any member replying to a report with intentions of shaming them or intending to bully them for posting a report will receive a immediate 7 day ban. If this behaviour continues, you will be removed from BCFR, without hesitation.
4. Poster Respect: When a member posts a fishing report and doesn't
disclose its location; lure, bait choice, colour or other details, show some
respect to the poster, don't try to be the hero and guess these things in the
thread. If original poster wanted to tell everyone the details, they would have
in the original post. If you want to ask the person explicit details, send
him/her a private message, PM! Do not ask the poster in the thread! This also
applies to photo's asking member for photo's will have the same consequence!
5 Posting Pictures: If you want to post pictures of your fish, we
encourage it but if you don't want people see where you caught it, then either
post pictures that exclude the scenery, a picture that contains just the fish or
otherwise don't post them? Pictures with the background whited out look
ridiculous and we would rather read a report with no pictures, than see that!
Failure to comply to the fishing report rules and policies can result in
immediate disciplinary action at the discretion of the Administration/Moderator
team. BCFR reserves the right to act in the best interest of the site outside of
and including the rules of the site at any given time.
