    Please Read

    Ben and I have discussed this and it is important that we all, follow the guidelines set forth in the Site Rules and Policies.
    FishingTX is growing at a fast pace and we have been alittle slack on some of the rules.

    One of the items of concern is our complience with Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998
    Specificaly the use of cartoon or animated characters in signatures and or avatars.

    Please reveiw your profile and adjust accordingly.
    If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of the staff.

    Your cooperation is greatly appreiated

    This is a government regulation administered by the FCC. If children under are thirteen are allowed to sign up or the site allows cartoon characters then the site has to be registered with the FCC. Here is a write-up by the FCC explaining COPPA.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Your avatar ( picture on your profile) such as Ben has a perch on his, no cartoon images may be used because it violates the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. We want the site to stay within the rules and prevent any problems.
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
