Forum: Rules & Etiquette

Welcome to the SA Fishing Forum, often described as "SAFF" on the internet. By registering on this SAFF site you are also agreeing to the following SAFF Forum Rules & Etiquette:

  • Not to post any material which is knowingly false, inaccurate, harmful, threatening, harassing, invasive of a person's privacy, or tending unreasonably to discredit or malign
  • Not to post material that is racist, abusive, vulgar, hateful, obscene, sexually oriented, or otherwise violative of any South African law
  • No links to web sites that are in direct competition to SA Fishing Forum will be permitted
  • Copyright material must not be posted unless it is owned either by you or by this web site or authorisation has been received from the owner of said content

Products & Advertising

  • SAFF permits members to use the forums to share links to products, services and other resources that might be of benefit to forum members
  • Members/Prostaff found to be excessively "punting" will be warned and if persistent will be banned. This is a privilege retained for paying advertisers or Prostaff of said paying advertisers
  • You may also include a link to a website in your personal signature (which appears under each post you make) or on your public Profile page but please make sure these are relevant to the SAFF community and not spam or a surreptitious way to boost your own site's SEO ranking. Anybody using this facility as a gateway to promote non paying advertisers may be warned by the moderating team, but will usually be deleted instantly by moderators
  • Manufacturers and distributors are warmly welcomed to promote their products, services, events, tournaments, vacancies and special offers in our "Advertisers" section if they are paying Advertisers and only under their allocated section
  • SAFF Members have a dedicated "For Sale" or "Wanted Items" section. This section is for selling of secondhand or unwanted goods. This section is highly moderated and will not tolerate unchecked advertising or Prostaff attempting to advertise or sell-off retailer/distributor products
  • Chain letters, pyramid schemes and similar are expressly forbidden in all forums


  • YOU remain personally responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless SAFF and their members as well as advertisers with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s)
  • We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message
  • The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of SAFF or any entity associated with the SAFF Forum
  • Although the SAFF Forum does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of messages posted by forum members, we reserve the right to delete any posted message for any reason whatsoever
  • You hereby consent to SAFF disclosing information we hold about you to any proper prosecuting or investigating authority in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message/comment posted by you here in the SAFF Forum
  • The SAFF owners, reserve the right to amend these Rules at any time

Forum Posting Etiquette

  • NO SHOUTING - Posting all in CAPITALS is considered bad form and the equivalent of shouting. Resist the urge to use them, for there is a chance your post will be deleted - or ignored by members
  • Do not post the same topic into multiple forums. Choose the most appropriate forum for your question
  • No Spamming Permitted AT ALL!
  • Unfortunately, like every other online forum, the SAFF Forum will attract the attention of Internet Trolls who seek to cause disharmony among the legitimate users by making spurious or inflammatory posts. Anyone suspected of this kind of behaviour will be warned by the moderating team only once. Continued inappropriate posts after a warning has been issued will result in the immediate deletion of their user account

How To Notify Us Of Objectionable Material

  • If you feel that a posted message is objectionable, please alert the moderators of that forum by clicking on the "Report to Moderator" option on the right hand inside block of a message. The Forum administrators and moderators can remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so as soon as we can, if we determine that removal is necessary.

Guests / Unregistered Users

  • Guests/Unregistered Users, cannot post to the forum, this is a privilege reserved for registered members
  • Guests/Unregistered Users have access to limited sections of the forum. To obtain full access a guest will need to register accordingly
  • By registering with the SAFF site you are agreeing to abide by the SAFF Forum Rules
  • Posting will be activated only once a guest has registered and activated their account by clicking on the activation link sent in their registration mail from the system
Stop looking behind you, you are not going that way...
