Community guidelines

Nursery World is proud to keep its Forum respectful, pleasant and constructive. Please read our guidelines before posting.

Self-Promotion is Spam

The Forum is monitored by our administration and moderation team, and by the user community. Spam is not welcome, and we encourage users to flag it. Any post that is considered advertising for one's own interests, e.g. your business or service, will be removed.

You may post links to sites you run or are affiliated with to illustrate a point you are making in a post, however users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Anything that the moderators consider to be advertising will be removed. People who repeatedly post promotional content will be permanently blocked.

Language and trolling

Vulgar language is not allowed, and we encourage other users to flag it. This includes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.

Please do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling". Repeat violators will be permanently blocked.

Personal attacks, libel and slander

In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. Nor will any comments that are libellous or slanderous. While discussions may on occasion become heated, posts should remain respectful. We encourage users to flag posts that fall short of this standard. The moderators will close discussions that stray into vitriol or abuse, and violators will be warned and potentially blocked.

Moderators and administrators have the final word

If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the moderators, not to the boards. The appropriate actions will be taken.


If you have something to post and you're not sure which category it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only create confusion.

Multiple accounts are not permitted

If you forget your password, please don't create another account: use the password recovery tool. You will then be able to reset your password, assuming that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.

Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact us.
