Lately, there has been a rash of members posting fish-related questions here...going forward, please ensure your posts are put in the category that fits best. This is for official announcements only.

When I first started on the forum years ago we had this same problem and if I remember correctly it was due to the new topic tab at the top of the forum would default to announcements so newbies would just click that and post. I think Penn just removed that tab back them which forced people to go into the correct area to post, im assuming since hes updated the site with the new template and software that tab has returned maybe you can get him to get rid of it again or atleast default it to the "The Oscar Fish" section so we only have tp move a couple instead of all of them

Yes, I have moved quite a few in the last few days. You're right Ken, people are clicking on the "new topic" but not selecting the correct category to put it in. If it gets bad again, I'll just have to remove that from the forum menu.

I think we can go one better, I believe we can create a category where only moderators and administrators can not only post, but also see, normal registered members will not be able to have any access. So basically we can talk about everyone without them knowing :-) :-) :-)

Would you like me to do that?

Since its for official announcements, and you guys are the officials, that would make good sense

Can we do both cause I agree with jack about locking announcments and news out to everyone but mods and admins since thats the only people that need to be posting there and having a special section for us would be awesome it would make it so much easier to talk among each other in a group setting instead of forwarding messages back and forth through pm's

Okay guys, I have locks on the forum so only administrators and moderators are able to reply and paste messages.
