    The CozyCot Forums is a public discussion board and, while we encourage a free flow of information and ideas on the forums, we also ask that you follow a few basic rules. By using or participating on the CozyCot Forums, you agree to the following information.

    These are the same guidelines the CozyCot moderators use to review posts. Posts found to be in violation of any of the below will be deleted without notice. The poster may be warned about the misappropriate posting. If the same user is found to be in violation after being warned, that user's CozyCot account may be permanently deleted.

    We reserve the right to edit/delete posts/threads/signatures at our discretion. Any post/thread/signature that we deem inappropriate for viewing will be dealt with accordingly. If you have any questions about actions taken against a post/thread/signature please PM the appropriate forum's Moderator(s).

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your feedback and thanks to a lovely cotter who emailed us. As we do not check back on the forums, we appreciate feedback sent to us here. We try to look into all emails, and respond appropriately, and time is needed.

    The ads are all in very small file sizes and in no way causing the database error which you have experienced the last few days. We have rectified the ad covering the space issue. If any of this ad problem arise again, we do appreciate your feedback here so we can look into it immediately. For the database error that you have experienced the last few days, we have found the problem to be with the BlogShop thread that is pulling data from all the different links and images pulling from various different sites posted by BS owners or cotters. We have since closed it and will monitor it closely.

    Love,
    CozyCot Crew
