News and Politics
It has now been several years since The Horse Forum, after lengthy discussion between the Team (at that time and some of us are still around) and various members decided to close the News and Politics forum here.
A thread was made in Rules of the Community to advise of the changes.
As most members only read the main rules and we have many new members now that weren't around at the time the closure happened, that rule has now been added in to our main Rules
The 'no discussions' ban only applied/applies to political discussions or threads that were strongly likely to become political.
Discussions on certain current affairs have always been allowed in 'Off Topic'
Even if we decide to allow a thread that's been posted, we retain the right to close, edit or remove it if it becomes political or too contentious.
If in any doubt about a thread you would like to start, please contact the team first using a Talk to the Team thread.
Just winging it is not a plan
