Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.
Hello all! This is just a quick reminder to ensure that you are posting a new thread or question in the appropriate forum. The Feedback forum is overwhelmed with questions that are having to be moved elsewhere.

    Do not post any personal information - the post will be edited. Use the PM system to exchange any contact or personal information.

    Also, do not use text speak. You will be banned and the post deleted if you do.

    Posting of images is welcome, however please make sure that you have permission to post the image!

    The selling / brokering of sales of dogs is prohibited in both boards and adverts.

    Reporting Posts
    If you have a problem with any post or notice that a post is in breach of the Charter, then use the 'report post' button

    'Thanks' Function
    Please feel free to leave "thanks" for any poster that has been helpful towards you, however this is entirely your responsibility. Asking or demanding thanks is not allowed and offences will be deleted , and may result in infractions and banings.

    As per rules, distribution or aiding the distribution of illegal material is completely forbidden. All other standard rules and guidelines stand. This is not a specific 'animal welfare' forum (see Animals and Pet Issues forum), but posters are welcome to discuss welfare issues in a civilised and polite manner. Any offensive or libellous posts will be removed and users infracted/banned. However, it is worth remembering the following:

    This is a greyhound racing forum where people discuss the sport. If you do not support the sport, then it is worth remembering that you might be offended if you read some of the posts.
    Posting in this forum to troll users in Animal Welfare or Animal&Pet Issues is not acceptable; nor are regular posters from the Greyhound racing forum who troll in those forums.

    In both cases, infractions and/or bans may be given by mods in both forums even if the user only posted in one forum.

    This Charter is a guide, not an exhaustive list.

    If you have any questions, pm myself, sparks or Dub13.

    As per new general guidelines, if you have a query about moderator actions please consult the CMods (sparks or Dub13) first and then HELPDESK, rather than posting in the Feedback forum.

    Any derailment of a thread by the continued discussion of moderator actions will result in your posts being deleted and a ban being issued.

    Dispute resolution procedure

    1. If you have a problem with a post, thread or a ban from a forum, the first step should be a PM to the moderator in question. If you are not comfortable with PM'ing that particular mod, you can PM the other mods of that forum. You will find the list of the mods at the bottom of the forum in question. If you have been banned from a forum it is still possible to enter it to see who the mods are by logging out of first.
    2. If you are not happy with the outcome of the above, then next step is to PM the Category Moderators. They are listed alongside the regular mods.
    3. Failing that, you can then take it to Help Desk forum where an Admin can become involved and give an opinion on the matter.

    Things not to do

    1. Argue with a mod on thread - This is just so that the thread doesn't become derailed by something other than the topic of the thread
    2. Start a new thread in the forum you are having a problem in
    3. Start a thread in Feedback
    4. Start a thread in Help Desk until all other avenues for resolution have been exhausted
    5. Send abusive PMs (this will earn you a siteban)
