COASTSIDE FORUM RULES

Profiles - All members are required to update their profiles with correct information including first and last names and location.

PG 13 Parental Guidance Suggested. Some Material May Not Be Suitable For Children. A PG-rated motion picture should be investigated by parents before they let their younger children attend. The PG rating indicates, in the view of the Rating Board, that parents may consider some material unsuitable for their children, and parents should make that decision. The more mature themes in some PG-rated motion pictures may call for parental guidance. There may be some profanity and some depictions of violence or brief nudity. But these elements are not deemed as intense as to require that parents be strongly cautioned beyond the suggestion of parental guidance. There is no drug use content in a PG-rated motion picture.

Revised Forum Posting Rules
At Coastside, we require that our members use this site for what it is, a Fishing Information Exchange. Our intent is that moderation of forum content will be at a minimum and it is our hope that members will abide by the rules to keep the site civil and trouble free. We have a few simple rules that need to be followed. Should there be an issue, use the Report Post Function or contact a moderator directly.

Language and Use of Nudity or Profanity
We do not allow gratuitous profanity or nudity on this site. This is a family website, and we want it to be an informative and entertaining experience for everyone. However, that does not mean that young children should be viewing the website without supervision. As a broad guideline for what is acceptable, we are using a standard similar to the PG rating used by the MPAA/

Personal Attacks are not allowed.
This includes negative comments based on race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Constructive feedback and/or discussions focused on fishing related issues will be permitted. Good natured "ribbing" is fine as long as both parties understand the intent. Name calling is unacceptable.

Political Discussions
These must be focused on fishing relating issues. Non fishing politics and partisan politics will be removed.

Links to other sites and information
Permitted but please keep these rules in mind when posting links to other sites and locations. Links may be addition to, but not instead of, posting one's own fishing report or other information helpful to members. Limited, extraneous profanity may be acceptable in a linked article or video, for example, if not offensive to an "average" individual. Please stop and think before posting potentially offensive material. It may be appropriate to include a warning with the post so that members can decide whether to proceed to the link or whether to allow their children to view the linked material.

Promotions and Advertising
Any attempt to use the site for advertising without prior approval will be removed.
Please obtain the approval of the board of Directors before posting any promotions and/or events We owe it to our sponsors who help keep this website running (along with the generosity of the membership) to try and keep our site free from unwanted advertising. If you would like to promote an item, please send an email to the club secretary who will contact you for details and present your information to the board for approval. However, this does not prevent a member from posting a report and or providing feedback and/or information on a non-sponsor or product. All we ask is to give our sponsors every chance to compete for your business.

Event Postings
We will gladly post the events of different clubs and organization with the approval of the moderators so that the event does not overlap with a club sponsored function or one of our vendors events.

Infractions and Removal from the Coastside Forums
It is our hope that we do not remove any members from our forums. However should there be a rare occasion, the following rules will apply.

1. Any person and/or posts that are disruptive or in a manner deemed detrimental to the club and its membership can be locked, edited, and removed by a moderator. The poster will be contacted and the issue discussed.
2. All such posts will be reviewed by the moderation team and discussed with the poster. We may decide to leave the post off, edit then reinstate it, or reinstate it in its original form.
3. Should the member's actions suggest that dismissal from the site may be appropriate, the issue will be brought up to club leadership before any action is taken.
4. All member removals will require approvals from the Moderators and Club President. Removal communications to the member will come from the President of Coastside Fishing Club.

Again, removal should be the last resort and it is our hope that members abide by these rules and enjoy the forums.
