Thank you for visiting and participating in the MenorcaTalk forums. Lets try and make it easy for you and others to find what they are looking for.

Please keep on topic and appropriate to the forum you are posting in, help to keep the forums easy to navigate and easy to find the information we all want.

Before posting a search first for the information you want. In some cases your question may have been asked before if not please keep all posts in the appropriate forum.

All posts that are inappropriate or posted to an unsuitable forum will be moved or deleted, MenorcaTalk moderators have full discretion on this.

Remember this forum is a 'FAMILY' area.
Please don't post in ALL CAPS AS IT MAKES IT HARD TO READ.
We welcome negative hotel / restaurant reviews, but please keep them factual, and please remember children visit this forum watch your LANGUAGE.

In an effort to clearly state the MenorcaTalk policy on what can and cannot be posted either in the public forums or via PM's, please see below:

You May Not Post:

- Messages, which promote a commercial business from which you derive compensation. Such compensation may include, but is not limited to, outright payment, a commission, salary, and/or free services or goods or a family connection, without prior consent from the site's administrators.

- Messages, which indicate that you have a property for rent, or promote a property to which you have a personal/ family interest without prior consent from the site's administrators.

- Messages via a false name or anonymously which promote, denigrate, or libel another person, business or entity.

- Material, which is copyrighted by others, and to which you have no clear license or title or permission to post on MenorcaTalk. Such material would include text, images, graphics, etc.

- We do not allow what is known as 'Hot Linking' in the forums to any graphic, picture or photograph from third party websites.

- Spam of any kind is not allowed. Single or multiple postings to include: posting the same message in several threads in a short period. While the purpose of this forum is to provide discourse amongst its participants, repeating the same message over and over, whether good or bad, is not acceptable. Most forum readers check for the newest postings and read the messages in that fashion, so one post in the right topic area is more than enough to get the message across.

- We discourage the inclusion of images in posts, please think of the members who are on slow internet connections and post a link to the image instead.

However we have provided a section, Menorca services where you can freely advertise to members and visitors of any Menorca interest business or service you have or have an interest in. Please read the the free advert section rules before posting in there classified_rules.php

You May Post:

- Messages about a Menorca-based or oriented business only if you do not have any interest, whether personally or commercially to it.

- Messages with content that is authored by you (text or link to images) and/or in the public domain.

- We also hold the right to edit, remove, or otherwise change posts where we decide this necessary.

But please remember before you post:

- Most important remember this is a family site, children often read it.

- Use a topic subject that describes the content of your post. "HELP" is bad "I need help on choosing a resort" is Good

- Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention, IT MAKES IT HARD TO READ.

- Do not send questions pertaining to topics of discussion on this board via personal messages or email to Moderators or Admin, you will be referred back to the appropriate forum.

- Please do not send answers to questions pertaining to topics of discussion on this board via personal messages or email. Posting them on the forums mean they are there for everyone to read.

- Don't post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain matter then don't post.

- Read up before asking! The site contains lots of information on Menorca, your question may already have been answered. You can search the forums here search.php or search the main Menorca guide here

Please note that the MenorcaTalk Moderators have full discretion as to how to interpret and enforce these rules at all times, and their lack of enforcement or speed to enforce is entirely dependent on what the Moderators decide (or when they decide to act). However, it should be noted that violations of the primary "You May Not Post" rules will result in deletions of posts (or content) and possible banning from ever posting on MenorcaTalk.

Thank you for your cooperation. The Admin and Moderators of MenorcaTalk.
