Commonly asked questions:
Q. My email is banned, why? I haven't even registered here before!
A. All AOL and Hotmail addresses are banned, not just yours. This is due to
issues with both ISP's reporting our emails as spam. We
suggest using gmail or yahoo if you need a free email
Q. I registered and still can't post, why not?
A. It takes up to 48 hours to approve all new registrations, which are hand
approved. If it's been longer than that, you probably didn't confirm the email
we sent you immediately after you registered. Check
your spam folder. If you have your spam folder set to auto delete, and
need the activation codes resent, use this link
If you still can't post, keep reading...
Q. I can't post a reply in the forums, why?
A. The classifieds and the fishing reports are no reply forums. If you can't
post in the other forums, try posting in the test forum. If you can post
there, you can post in any forum that allows replies or
posts. If you can't post in the test forum, you should check your firewall, and make
sure you are logged in.

questions that get asked more than once are here.
Q. Can I get a "sticky thread" for my event?
A. Stickies are limited to 10 days prior to an event. They are for charities,
charitable functions, non profits and fund raisers. If it's anything political, forget it.
No more than 2 stickies will be run on the boards at one time. They are first come, first served. Business events,
commercial events, including boat shows, are not candidates for stickies.
It's been our experience that sticky threads are mostly ignored and in general are a poor
way to promote an event. Prior to making you request, please post your event on the
events board. That board has less daily traffic, which means your event will stay
on it longer. Google spiders this site daily, which means it will also be picked
up in searches there.
All sticky threads are at the sole descretion of staff.
Please do NOT use to the top, aka TTT or any other mechanism to push your threads
to the top of the board. Instead, use your intelligence to update them with timely updates.
Q. I saw an objectionable ad on the forums. What should I do about it?
A. Please click on the banner and copy the link URL. Send a private message via
the private message system to Mont with the link URL in it. Within 48 hours, the ad
will be blacklisted and will not appear again. If you post on the forums about
the problem, you will actually make it worse. This is because google and other ad
partners use keywords within the post themselves to decide which ads to display. By
bringing attention to an ad that isn't within our normal guidelines, you may
actually get 2coolfishing.com listed as the problem instead of the ad itself. We
strive to keep all our ads G or PG rated, but things do happen from time to time and others
can slip past us.
Q. How do I change my username?
A. Send a PM to 2CoolAdmin with your request. Username changes are $20 per change.
