For Sale & Wanted Forum
See rules here
Cat-World does not knowingly allow members to post illegal, copyrighted, slanderous material etc. However, we do not pre-moderate posts on the Cat-World forums, therefore, from time to time inappropriate posts may show up on the forums. Cat-World goes to great lengths to stay within the law & ensure members stick within the law. If you believe a member, post or thread contains illegal material (be it copyright, defamatory, slander), please contact a Cat-World staff member immediately, and we will look into it & take action where necessary.
Cat-World is not responsible for the content of any member's posts, and the views expressed on Cat-World are the responsibility of the posting member and not Cat-World. Cat-World does not preview member posts in any way before they appear on the site. Any link posted to a third-party internet address does not imply an endorsement of that site or its content by Cat-World.
Please respect other people's feelings. It is ok to disagree with a person posting a message, but don't make it personal. No name calling.
As with our signature guidelines, to prevent members joining Cat-World with the sole reason of promoting another website we ask that you do not put a link to any site until you have a post count of 100+. Once you reach 100 posts you may place a discreet link to competing cat sites in your signature. As a rule of thumb, if you stand to gain either financially (via business, selling a product, pay per click) or members (for example on forums), then you may not post a link until you have reached 100 posts.
Personal attacks, aggressive, offensive, defamatory or antagonistic behavior
The Cat-World forums are NOT a place to air one's dirty laundry. Any post which attacks or insults a person, or breeder, business, a cat club, welfare organisation or website either directly or by innuendo will have their post removed. Repeat offenders will be banned. Keep public gripes & politics off the boards. If you have any complaints, comments or questions in regards to cat clubs, councils or welfare organisations then please refer to them for clarification. Cat-World no longer permits these types of discussion due to their volatility.
Do not use these forums to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, racist, sexually oriented, offensive to a person's religion, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. Do not use the forums to initiate or continue hostility expressed toward any staff or member;
Cat-World reserves the right to edit, modify or delete any post made in such an event.
No flooding of the boards. Please post on a topic in one forum only.
Spammers or people posting "get rich quick" schemes will be banned on the spot.
If a thread has been locked by an administrator or moderator, please do not start a new thread which relates to the same topic.
When placing a question or answering a question regarding a cats health please do not give or request medical advice. This is the role of a qualified veterinary practitioner. In particular medical recommendations for prescription drugs and dose rates may not be given in the open forum. If you have knowledge or experience about a specific treatment that may be helpful in a particular instance you may offer your suggestion via pm provided it is made clear that a Veterinary Surgeon MUST manage the case.
Members who artificially bump up their post count to gain access to extra features or forums will have such posts deleted & their post count altered accordingly. Repeat offenders will be kept in the members group & not granted access to off topic areas & extra features.
You are required to supply us with a valid e-mail address to register on the forums. This address is viewable by the administrators of Cat-World only. Your e-mail will NEVER be passed onto a third party. Administrators & moderators are able to see your IP address. This ensures that we have more control over the forums & are able to ban members by IP address should they cause trouble. Once again, this information is not passed onto third parties.
