Message Board Terms & Conditions

In an effort to create a message board in which the content is "primarily" fishing related, new procedures have been created to post on the BZ message board.

The purpose of the BZ Board is to allow the viewers to communicate via the web about the subject of fishing.  Fishing info, questions about lakes, lures, equipment, conditions, and other bass fishing subjects.  The process needs to change.  Positive comments and post from positive viewers wanting to learn and enjoy information on fishing.

There are several new conditions and procedures for using the BZ board:

  • If you want to post a message, you must become a member.  The data base has been cleared and if you were a member prior to December 31st, 2009, you must re-register by clicking on the BECOME A MEMBER button below. 
  • NOTICE: The BZ will NOT be selling or forwarding member info to other companies. 
  • An E-Mail verifying your information will be sent to the e-mail address you registered.  Once you receive the e-mail, there will be a link in the email to verify your membership.  Click on the link and your membership will be good to go. You will NOT have the ability to post unless your e-mail address has been verified by clicking on the link.
  • Once you become a member, you must login to be able to post a message or reply to a message.
  • You can NOT use alias names or nicknames.  If you post, you must use your registered first and last name in the post. (No hiding on this board anymore)
  • If you abuse or do not follow the terms of the BZ Member Board, your login will be blocked and you will not be able to post.
  • NO posting items for sale on the BZ Member Board.  Announcements for NON-Profit events are allowed on the member board.
  • All items for sale must be listed on the Classified Message Board.  Individuals will be allowed to posted items for FREE.  Business must register and pay a fee of $200 per year to post information on your company's products or services. (Information for companies interested in becoming a business member will be available on January 1, 2010)
  • Be respectful of the BASS ZONE and the BZ Staff.  Do NOT post information from a BZ competitor web site.  (wired2fish.com is OK)
  • Follow the Terms and Conditions of the BZ Board.

I appreciate all the loyal BZ viewers over the past 15 years and hope everyone understands the changes needed to be made.   Feel free to send any comments via e-mail at mark@basszone.com
