Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I'd like to reiterate the rules on Big Bluegill blog posts and discussions.


1. No profanity

2. No commentary in regards to race or religion, or politics

3. Stick to discussions on bluegill, fishing, bluegill fishing, fishing for bluegill, bluegilling, or substitute redear or any other type of sunfish or hybrid thereof

4. RESPECT--Remember to respect other Big Bluegill members opinions or traditions in regards to harvest practices or fishing methods.

It's OK to explain what you do, but don't slam anybody else for what they like to do. Anybody who has ever been on a fishing site realizes how explosive discussions on "catch and release" vs. "harvest" can be. It seems these talks somehow always degenerate into personal attacks. So far there have been ZERO problems on this site, but I think it's because of the extremely high caliber of members we have so far. If anybody on Big Bluegill thinks that somebody is being disrespectful please let me know. I will probably err on the side of caution and delete the entire thread. I'd rather be heavy handed, than see people upset with each other on Big Bluegill.

5. Off topic discussions, such as wishing people a happy holiday are absolutely OK, but if the topic begins to drift too far, the moderators reserve the right to pull the plug. Don't be offended, please, but sometimes it can be necessary to make an executive decision. After a discussion or blog has aged for a week or two, if I don't think it's related to bluegill I may possibly delete just to keep the content heavily in favor of bluegill or bluegill fishing.

6. Discussion on fishing methodology, such as fly fishing, spoon fishing, bobber fishing--anything like that--is highly encouraged. This site is becoming rich with good fishing information. I've been learning a lot. Keep up the incredible work.

7. Big Bluegill loves photos. I haven't seen any photos so far that have been out of line. I love every one of them. Keep 'em comin'!

8. Be cautious about blatant advertising. This isn't a street corner. It's a site to promote panfish--how to catch them, how to eat them, etc, and to be a clearinghouse for the best bluegill, redear and general fishing pictures available in the world. If I sense that you're here just to make a buck instead of contribute you'll find some of your contributions edited.

9. Absolutely no attacks on other anglers for their preferred methods of angling--PERIOD.

10. Please read this following rule carefully. Please do not use the messaging system to promote any political or religioius agenda. You will be immediately banned if I receive a complaint from a member. It does not matter if I agree with your view or not. This site is about bluegill, and NOT about religion or politics. My own personal beliefs are strong, but I have long ago learned that if I transmit these over the internet to somebody who is not interested in hearing them I am causing great harm to my own credibility, and to this site in general. If you send a personal message to anybody on this site that is threatening in any way, you will be banned. You will not receive a warning. The ban will be for life. No exceptions.

Not sure what this is all about but I still content the "edit" policy, length of time to edit, needs seriously extending. If there is some sort of costs involved in extending the time then that may be a consideration, but if there is no cost or other negative reason then it should be extended. Many forums have lengthy edit periods and some leave it open all the time. A 15 minute limit does not make sense if a poster wants to correct spelling, add, remove, or adjust content to make it read more correctly.   Having said that the forum is excellent in every other way. It's educational, informative, and brings anglers together to share.

Uh oh..did I, or a whole bunch of us screwed up?

When posting in a 'group', sometimes I need to edit for spelling errors, more into, etc, but I can't find an edit tab like there is in the regular forum.  Is there a way to edit a posting in a group?   Also, suggest the 15 minute time limit to edit should be extended or eliminated completely.  I don't understand the need for such a short time period limitation.  Others forums I subscribe too do not have a time limit.

Thanks for the info. Was not aware to edit you have to be quick on the trigger. Will do appropriately.

TO JB -

Edit fast! You get, like,15 minutes to go back and get it right. Once that time is past, that's it. I think this is to encourage people to keep it concise and relevant. Lots of forums do this.

Since there is no way for me to say anything in under 15 minutes, I write and edit in a separate document. Then I copy and paste when I get it the way I want.

The rules are fine, but what about some instructin on how this forum works. For instance, how do you edit a previous post for such things as spelling, left out words, etc.
