Whether this is your first time on-line or you're a seasoned on-line user, we've spelled out our house rules and general information for you here. Generally speaking, these rules simply require respect and good manners. Use common sense and you'll feel right at home.

Please reference the original post here for updates, or to ask questions.

Business advertising and signature approvals (ONLY):
Capt'n Rob

Technical support and password resets (ONLY):
Capt'n Mike

Board posting questions and concerns contact:
Forum Moderating Team

Rule #1
We live by our words on-line, so we don't allow obscene, racist or sexually explicit language, images, or photos. Keep in mind this is a PG13 site. We reserve the right to remove postings that defame or insult anyone, are abusive or hateful, or are derogatory. Any harassing notes or posts that could be construed as stalking will be removed and made available to the proper law enforcement officials. We also reserve the right to remove notes that are off the subject or not in English. Additionally, if at least two complaints specific to certain content arise, we will take the content down, out of respect to the members on this site. .

Rule #2
No solicitations or advertisements are allowed, unless approved by LSCN. This includes advertisements for your business, or for "get-rich-quick" schemes. Such notes add clutter, devalue conversation, and mislead people. Also, signatures should not contain links to your business unless approved by LSCN. You may not suggest or encourage illegal activity. If that does occur, LSCN will assist law enforcement officials.

Rule #2a
LSCN designated an area on the site to sell miscellaneous items Buy, Sell and Swap, do not sell concert tickets, sporting event tickets or any other item unless approved by LSCN, freebies are welcome without approval. Capt'n Rob)

Rule #3
Promotions and parties will not be allowed unless approved by LSCN (Saleena362, surfergirlck or Capt'n Rob). It's important that we space each event for maximum exposure and member attendance.

Rule #4
You must have copyright ownership or give credit for all material that you post on our bulletin boards and in our chats. No articles, recipes, song lyrics, art, or graphics may be posted without the express written consent of the copyright holder. Use your best judgment when it comes to copyrighted material. Free sites and freeware are acceptable, as long as you work within the parameters of this site.

Rule #5
When posting photos or images, keep in mind that this is a PG-13 site. The images should not show any more than you would see on your regular network TV. One important reason for this is that many people visit this site from their place of work, during breaks. We do not want anybody getting in trouble because somebody saw inappropriate pictures on their screen, while visiting our site. If you are unsure, just post a link to the image, and a warning.
This applies to avatars as well! LSCN reserves the right to remove change your avatar for you, if it is not appropriate.

Rule #6
You must respect the privacy of individuals. This means no posting of phone numbers, addresses, social security numbers or any other private information unless approved by that individual.

Rule #7
Practice good on-line etiquette. This means that you don't post the same note more than once. The on-line word for posting many times on one topic is "spamming." We don't allow that. On the same token, if there is something on your mind that you want to post about, see if the topic exists already. Use the search tool if you need to. Creating multiple posts on the same topic only clutters things.

Rule #8
You participate at your own risk on the forums, in private messaging, and in e-mail. You take responsibility for postings under your identification and use the information provided here at your own risk. LSCN takes no responsibility for the content or opinions posted here. LSCN reserves the right to remove any postings (although it has no duty to do so). If you see a post that you feel violates any of the above house rules, please notify any moderator by e-mail or PM. Barring technical difficulties, we will respond in 24 hours. By posting to any portion of LSCN, you agree to abide by the LSCN rules.

Rule 9
Use common sense and have a wonderful time at LSCN.

Ammendment: We would like this to be a great informational place for all tournament members. Whether it be Bass, Walleye, Muskie, or Salmon, this should be a great source for all information, standings, and meetings. Good Luck!
