My post about a site that lists available cabins keeps getting removed, why?
More than likely, the site is a travel agency and sells cruises. Cruise Critic does not allow the posting of travel agency names/sites on the forums. We realize that you are not posting in the context of buying a cruise; however, we will remove the post in order to maintain a fair environment towards all travel agencies.
I just wrote a review of my tour operator, posted it and now it is gone. Why was it removed?
We ask that all reviews of tour operators, tour guides, taxi drivers and businesses in ports of call be posted as a reply to an existing discussion on the forum. Please locate an existing posting about your tour operator. In the event you cannot find a recent posting about your tour operator, please feel free to post your review in response to a general question about what to do in your port of call. Please post only once, as multiple postings in a single forum are considered "spamming".
We will, however, make every effort to move your review to an appropriate location on the forum, as time permits.
Why don't you allow us to post about other cruise sites? My post contains *** and then you removed it!
Actually, we do allow the legitimate linking to information at another cruise site, as long as that link isn't posted in an attempt to drive traffic to that site (in the sole discretion of Cruise Critic), or if the posting of such site is meant to cause disruption within the community. If a website's url or name is replaced by a series of *****, it may mean that particular website had spammed our community with advertisements for their site, or that member(s) may have posted in a way that we consider self-promotion or advertising.
I received a Guideline Reminder for a "Nuisance Posting." Just what is that anyway?
A nuisance post is a message that is either obnoxious, annoying, or offensive to individuals or to the community. These types of posts add nothing to the discussion, and have a tendency to drive the discussion in a different direction.
I no longer wish to be a member; why won't you remove all my posts!?
