Community Rules

  • You must be a Veterinarian. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVrule1
  • Don’t be an asshole. Starting or continuing arguments with in the group will earn you a mute or a ban. If you must disagree, do so kindly and thoughtfully. Much better- if you disagree, scroll on. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVrule2
  • No political or no religious discussions. There are other sensitive subjects where rules will be enforced sooner as these topics have proven to cause large amounts of drama in the past. Topics include: veterinarians on TV or in the news, declaws, ear crops and anything to do with children. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVrule3
  • Never share anything from NOMV without permission. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule4
  • Tell us what you want/need, and similarly respect what the poster has requested. When posting tell us if you just want to share, need to vent, just want support, or if you want advice. Similarly, do not give advice unless it’s been asked for, do not scold someone for venting, nor shame them for needing support. And remember: the best advice comes from sharing your personal experiences. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule5
  • Medical questions are not allowed. Needing emotional support for a case is okay (i.e. I’m upset because this case went sideways), asking for medical advice (i.e. Hey, can you guys look at these radiographs) is not. If you need a consult- we recommend other groups like Vet to Vet. Similarly, please do not tag a specialist in post when you have a question- they deserve time off too. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule6
  • All discussions regarding people in work place disagreements should be done as an anonymous post. Similarly, any posts with screen shots must have the names blacked out. If an admin thinks your post needs to be anonymous, they may remove it and repost it as an anonymous post. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule7
  • Use the #hashtag posts for CE announcements, job posting, self-promotional announcements, for sale ads, and research projects. A full explanation of those post can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule8
  • Threads chastising the group as a whole, announcements that you are leaving or threads to discuss other posts that have been closed will be removed. If you wish to discuss culture on the page, or moderator actions please reach out to the team directly at NOMV Moderator. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule9
  • Please post any really disturbing links or gross pictures in the comments, rather than in the main post. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule10
  • Blocking any admin or moderator is grounds for removal from the group. https://tinyurl.com/NOMVRule11 The consequences of breaking these rules include a mute (temporarily not being able to post in NOMV) or a ban from NOMV. If you disagree with a moderator action or just have questions about NOMV in general, you are welcome to PM NOMV Moderator.
