SERVICES: Members can
now list 1 thread per day advertising their business or service, or
promotional updates. No contest drives, mailing list generation,
Affiliate sales, Aceai Berry scams, etc. If you provide a service
or product that could help others, list your thread. Threads will
be pruned monthly. No artificial bumping or secret squads with interest
and desire building. Typically called Pro Staff’s.
If you would like to get more reach, or host a promotional giveaway to
get maximum awareness, contact Paul. I have launched more products into
catfishing than anyone in the market.
AVATARS: Image used must be a picture of
you, predominately showing your face.
Listen, for the love that all is Holy, if your avatar keeps
*disappearing* just fix it. Wasting 30 minutes explaining what
the word,”predominantly” means will not be entertained.
PROFANITY: No profanity is authorized.
Using special characters such as ^^&&**^* will be considered
the same as profanity. Typical dirty jokes, racism, etc
disclaimer. Come on, its 2012, do not be stupid.
LINKS TO OUTDOOR
FORUMS: If the forum
competes in the same general space as the USCA, do not do it.
If you managed a local Walmart, do you really want somebody from K-Mart
handing out coupon fliers at your main entry way? I mean, come
on, some people are just stupid?
FORUM SIGNATURES: (NEW FLEXIBILITY)
Regular Accounts: Text Only
Level 1 Accounts: Hyperlink’s
Level 2 Accounts: Hyperlinks
Allowed, Images allowed.
Feel free to advertise your business or service. No
mailing list development, contest giveaways, Affiliate links,
etc. Plug your stuff, provide value, hopefully find more
business. Be cool, as we do have paid advertisers.
Signatures must be no larger than 4 lines of text. Signatures
which are too long, do not conform with the other rules regarding
signatures, or which interfere with the display or readability of
messages will be edited or removed.
NOTE 2: For the love of
all that is Holy, if your signature was removed do not keep putting it
back up. Notice it said,”YOUR BUSINESS OR SERVICE”. Not
your friend Tom’s, or Billy’s.
Posts made asking about the status of accounts, or missing threads that
have had some form of administrative action is not allowed.
FUND RAISERS: Posts made to query the
membership to raise funds are prohibited without permission.
Permission is rarely given.
USCA BASHING: Bashing the USCA on other public
social sites will result in loss of membership when seen or
TERMINATION: In the
event your account is terminated, your material posted to the USCA will
not be removed. Your personally information from your profile
will be wiped clean such as,"Avatar, e-mail, Name,etc" to provide you
anominity. Removing possible thousands of post(s) poses possible harm
and damage to the integrity of the software and will not occur.
COPY PASTING: Do not copy and paste copyrighted
material on the USCA. If you did not personally create it, its
copyrighted. Summarize and link to it, etc.
If you are linking to catfish content off the USCA, come on? Like
being in a coffee house, telling another customer to go across the
CATFISH GUIDES: Hit us up, we will take care of
TOURNAMENTS: Hit us
up, we will take care of you!
TOURNAMENT START-UPS: Do
not use the USCA to create a post(s) asking people if they would be
interested in starting clubs, tournaments, or other forms of
organizations. We would be more than happy to create a reciprocal
relationship with your organization after you have put your own time,
energy, and expense into the ground work. We do have programs for
existing catfish organizations that are bringing value to the
membership from their own growth and hard work.
For the love of all that is Holy. Do you really need an explanation on
why this is not cool?
