I'm working on it. Expect a bit of downtime this afternoon, maybe.

Re: Discussions relating to Hantavirus *Poll Added 6th April

They want samples from England only so sadly those in Scotland are not able to participate.

Re: Warning Level?

Hotlinking (for our purposes at least) is where a photo is hosted on another website and you put the image in one of your posts on the forum. This means that every time the post is viewed, the site hosting the image has to provide the bandwidth for the photo. See - http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/H...

Re: Warning Level?

Having read the rules, however, and generally not having any problems with them, I should think it unlikely that I (or anyone) would accrue enough to get banned, especially within the space of a year, so I don't really see them as anything much to worry about. Exactly. Most minor warnings are reall...

Re: Rat health warning to people at Alijanes last Sunday

Sorry to hear this. I had it in my rats a few years ago. I didn't have any ill rats - they were either alive, happy, healthy, and well, or dying and dead within 24 hours. It wasn't something I could stop once they developed symptoms. It did stay confined to cages though. Cages right beside affected ...

Re: Contemplating preventative spaying.

I would always spay at the same time as lump removal - less risky than two GAs.

Re: Is there any way to "ignore" certain posts?

Said person said something derogatory about another member in an PM they instigated to me. Now that's a definite rule break and I hope that gets recognised If a post is reported, and it is a breach of the rules, it will be dealt with by admin, but we do not monitor or have any access to PMs. Why is...

Re: Is there any way to "ignore" certain posts?

Apologies, I am on my phone so can't quote properly. My personal (not adminny) thoughts on whether the threads should stay or not is that they should. The posts by the original poster are appalling, but the health information given by responders is in many cases excellent, and particularly a post on...

Re: Is there any way to "ignore" certain posts?

Every member is subject to the same forum rules, and warnings are applied where the rules are broken - there are no "dual standards", but if you feel a post is breaking the forum rules then please report it for attention by an administrator or admin aide. Specific moderation decisions are not discus...

Re: The Other Great Naked Debate!!

personally i think that if you accept the problems in one variety you have to accept them all. trying to down play one varieties issues and higlighting another is pointless they all have problems. Just out of interest, where does this end? If a new variety appeared with a different health issue tha...

Re: The Other Great Naked Debate!!

I took in were six hooded dumbo hairless young adult rats, the "breeder" had them offered for sale for stupid amounts of money (rare! exotic!), repeatedly lowered the price, and couldn't sell them so they eventually came to me as rescues.

Re: The Other Great Naked Debate!!

I had litters with both hairless and smooth rats in. On average, the hairless rats died noticeably younger than their siblings and suffered from more abscesses, scratches, and general lack of hardiness (though not eye issues, I never really saw those in hairless). The other type of hairless I bred, ...
