1. We deal with problems as we are made aware of them. Please make us aware of issues which may go against our community guidelines. We all share the responsibility of maintaining a nice horsey environment.

2. We will, when necessary, remove postings or comments.

3. When only part of a post or comment is causing an issue, we will very occasionally remove the troublesome chunk while leaving the rest of the comment or post intact. We will not edit a post to change the meaning, spelling, or anything else intended by the user.

4. Sometimes, when a comment or post is removed, it is necessary to delete subsequent messages which refer to or quote from the original (but now deleted) comment. This may also happen because a later comment quotes directly the problematic bits of the original comment, which just perpetuates the problem.

5. When a comment or talk board discussion gets extremely long, a moderator may leave a warning in the thread and suggest that the conversation be restarted elsewhere where possible.

This is because long threads slow the system down for everyone. We may also do this when conversations stray wildly off-track. Shortly after the posted warning, the thread may be closed and/or deleted. Long discussions or messages will be removed at the editor's discretion.

6. Participants who seriously, persistently or willfully ignore the community standards, participation guidelines or terms and conditions will have their posting privileges withdrawn. We don’t want to do this, but will if we have to.

7. Moderation is more than just dealing with problems. Sometimes we'll join a comment thread or talk board topic to help focus (or refocus) the discussion, or to get people talking.

We love horses, you do too – so let’s talk about it!
