    Yes...to report a post click on the triangle, type why you are reporting it in the message box and submit it. That goes straight to the moderators and we will jump on it as quick as we can.

    Hi folks. I wanted to update you on our progress in fighting SPAMMERS. You may remember that we had a very obnoxious person attack our forums a couple weeks back, vowing to to bring more mayhem to us. As a result we had to implement moderated registrations. In the process of tightening things up we lost a couple of folks who were genuinely wanting to join our forums. I've been in contact with them and hopefully they'll try again. We now have new software implemented that will check registrations against known forum SPAM lists and if it is a known spammer they will be kicked out immediately. If they pass this first test they will be approved into a new usergroup called "Newbies". Any posts made by newbies will be moderated until we know they are a legitimate, contributing member to our forums. So if you register a new account please be patient as your posts are moderated until you are bumped up to our Registered Angler status.

    Hopefully these changes will keep our forums family-friendly and on target for fishing discussions. Thanks all for your patience and thanks to our moderators who keep us going!

    Are all posts moderated for a specified time period, or a certain number of posts?

    It is outlined in your welcome email and Private Message. To fight spammers "Newbies" are moderated automatically for the first 4-5 posts. After those are approved your membership changes from "Newbie" to "Registered Angler" and posts aren't automatically moderated after that.
