Welcome to the Forums
THIS IS REQUIRED READING FOR ALL FORUM MEMBERS

San Antonio Fishing Forum is a community for Anglers, both hobbyists and professionals. Please take time to read this document through to get a feel for what the forums are like, how to start your life among us and how to make the best out of your time here. We are often referred as "SAFF" (San Antonio fishing forum). As we are growing bigger everyday we thought it was time for us to place some Rules/Regulations and terms of services about our Forum Policy . If you have any suggestions feel free to contact us.

Foreword

The community has grown very large but I am very happy to see we have been able to maintain that helpful and relaxed mood SAFF is famous for. And we do strive to keep it going. For this we should thank our excellent staff of moderators who are always there, and our large base of resident members who gently guide each others to the community and into the finer art of Hooking Fish.

The SAFF Culture
When you start your journey with us you will notice a strange combination of relaxed mood and serious dedication to Fishing. You will also notice how people who know a lot share their experience and talent without hesitation. This culture has been developed and refined over time, combining witty humor and having fun is what our members value most.

SAFF has members from different cities/ folks serving overseas, both professionals and amateurs, male and female, diverse ethnic backgrounds. Please respect this diversity and do not push your views down other people's throats - discussion, fun, knowledge, sharing and caring is what we value most.

The Staff
The Staff is your friend
Please respect and obey our moderators. They are volunteer workers, active members of SAFF, who help maintain SAFF. If they ask you to do something or else comment on your behavior just learn from the experience and simply comply. Remember: if you start a fight with a mod, you will always lose. If you are polite and respect the voluntary work mods are doing, you will be treated well even if you blunder. Mods are there to help you.
..but when you are bad the moderator is your jury
Most serious offenders will be banned from the forums, forever or for a specific length of time. Moderators discuss ban decisions together, banning is not done on a whim. Complaints are put to the bottom of bottom drawer. Don't let things come to that, read the rules and oh, behave!
