A suggestion regarding posts and answers.....

Recommended Posts

Hey all...

Don't know if this is where to post this, but here goes. I have noticed that many members ask questions ranging from what lure to use to how should I fish this time of year. It might help if, when you ask a question or for advice, you say WHERE you are from and describe (briefly) what kind of habitat (pond, lake, creek, river, etc.) you fish in.

For the most part, GENERAL bass advice is the same all over. But when you get into specifics, I feel it makes a difference where you are from. Answers given by life long residents of Texas and Florida, as genuine as they may be, may not apply to a diehard Northerner (Rhode Island) like me. Sometimes it leads to arguments (No, not on these posts!!  ;D) Some folks make a little note near their avatar as to where they are from?? And, lets be a little nicer to the youngsters....most of you guys on here are veteran bass anglers and they youngsters look up to you all for advice. Snapping, or sarcasm, or mocking really knocks them down. I hate to see that!!! This is all given in good spirit and is IMVHO.

As always, I am glad to be a part of this thing that is Bass Resource.com and always appreciate everyones help and comraderie!!!!

You don't have to give up your exact spot. Just a clue as to what part of the country you are in, type of weather the past few days, type of water(Lake,pond , river etcc...) It is very helpful

Bassnajr,

We would not slam you.

We are nice people.

May I add to your suggestion that the individual posting use a lot of white space so we do not have to dig through a 5,000 word paragraph to find out the essential data for a reply.

Good post. Thanks for posting it.  :)

That's a challenge neither of us can meet.

You need a spell checker and I need an editor with a lot of patience.

So you are saying that we should fragment our opinions, that we took the time to express articulately, so that it is easier for people to be lazy and not read the whole thing?

How does one know the age of a person without judging them to do so? I couldn't tell you if the person who started this post is a teenager or mature adult.

No offense to the orginal poster.

As much detail as possible has always been asked if seeking advice on what, where, and when and why questions.

Age is posted in the member's profile.  Although some choose not to show that information.

You won't always know the age of the poster, but there are many clues, like photos in the avatar, their profile, the way they speak, and what's in the post. Or you could ask. The members here are very good at "profiling" other members (for the positive). As far as the grammar, spelling etc. some folks, regardless of age, may not be as educated as others, or don't care like Muddy and I  ;).

It's not hard...BE NICE TO EVERYONE WHO POSTS!!!! That way,  you're always safe!!

Exactly!!  There is no need for sarcasm or smart-a## comments when someone is asking an honest question.  I see people comment that "there are no stupid questions" but from some of the responses on these boards a few people don't follow this mantra.  Age has nothing to do with it.  We can all ask questions that may have obvious answers to others.

WARNING; Someone got their hands on Paul's computer, that can't be him, the response is way too short

by the way; What's a few smart a## remarks among friends here? Getting Mooked is one of the things that makes this place fun, just ask Hookem ;D

I agree, Muddy.  Smart a## comments that are made in jest with the participation of all involved can be fun. But you know the ones I'm talking about.  Someone asks a question hoping to get an answer because this site contains some of the best bass fishing info anywhere, and then someone else makes a subtle post attacking their intelligence or their reasons for asking such a question.

Good thread. It's always helpful to know where or what region someone is from to give accurate replies. When I first signed on to this site, I didn't indicate where I'm from and need to update that information; SoCal.

The moderators need to keep members from attacking each other and making harmfull remarks. It doesn't take too long to figure out who to help and share information with and who is looking for an argument, therefor someone to avoid. When you don't know where someone is from or what classification of water they fish, ask. Being a good sportsmen goes a long way to earning the respect of fellow members.

We try.

The official position is "Personal attacks will not be tolerated."

Regarding "harmful remarks", again , we try.
