liars and cheaters

John Wright

i dont get why members post amazingly inacurate wieghts or why others would cheat on here the leaderboards have a purpose when i look for the biggest catch and theres a million pound fish it makes the boards useless or people cheating votes just to get up the ranks if i couldnt do it legit i would be embarrased if had to cheat wouldnt feel i earned it  and the other members arent dumb enough not to see whats happening would be ashame for joe to have to start playing site police like he had to do with the offensive comments, like the younguns say keep it real man

I agree, I wanted to check the largest fish caught of a number of species and that slot is taken 1/2 the time by a fake fish, a statue, an exageration, a joke etc. OK have your fun, but go back and change it soon thereafter so The real biggest of that species can be found!

Wonder if we could get a way to flag/mark obviously BS catches?

We don't have to be a stickler about every inch or ounce, but the obviously fake/joke posts shouldn't show up on the leaderboard or count for totals, etc.

exactly i agree with dennis if you got to make the joke post fine funny ha ha but go back and change it afterwards and i agree we shouldnt argue a pound or 2 or inch or so but the obvious should be done away with that includes obvious cheaters also would like to get mr pychs input on this topic i know he's a nice guy and doesnt like to play baby sitter on the site but i would like some sort of solution thats why joe makes the big bucks on here lol just messing with you joe :P

I just tried to find the largest large mouth bass caught by anyone on this forum and it's impossible. We have exagerations, the weight and size of 3 fish, a reported world record,etc That's not right!!  Who did get the biggesr large mouth bass so far and where do I go yo see it???

Good luck Dennis. I just pulled up the Largemouth Bass page, and all 7 of the biggest catches by weight are either multi-fish stringers, joke posts, or posts of existing records not caught by members.

It's not that there's necessarily anything wrong with posting those things, but it would be nice if the leader boards only showed single-fish, accurately-weighed/measured catches made by members.

I'm with Jason and John on this one.

Hey Joe, delete that nonsense! If you do the right thing, I'll tell the Yanks to take it easy on your Sox this weekend!

I am right there with all of you guys on this one. I joined this sight about a year ago and thats been a pet peeve of mine since then. And I don't even get posting it as a joke. This is a fishing website where fishermen post THEIR catches and tell the story behind it. If you want to be cute and post a dumb@*% pic of you holding 2 sharks in a speedo put it on facebook, not here. But to the legit members, some good fish on here boys (and girls) just wish we knew who had the hogs in each species.

Wow! We all agree on this topic! Let's hope Joe can fix it!

I like the idea of flagging as BS.  In many cases, I think it's a mistake (a multi-fish stringer) in others some exaggeration.  We're not running a tourney here, so having the big fish does not win you anything.

FYI... I just fixed up the bass leaderboard and going through some others.

Nice work, Joe. You should also go fix the Red Sox scoreboard when you are done. There's something wrong with it, too.

Hank - I was working on the red sox scoreboard over the weekend when they took 2 of 3 from the yankees.  But back to form tonight versus tampa bay.

John - good to know I got your vote!  See what we can do about the cheaters.

Just curious as to what the purpose of cheating is doing anyways. Its not like this is some tournament. this is a great site for posting catches and stories behind them.

Joe, can you look at the ILLINOIS largest bass by weight?  looks a bit strange.  i believe he meant 10 inches and not 10 lbs.
