    Why This Forum is Different

    There are a few places to discuss racing online, but here's why we are different:
    1. We're independent, not being run by an organisation or harness racing body means you are free to discuss anything you want. The only censorship is that we request everybody be polite and respect everybody else's opinion.

    2. Instant posting. No approval process or anything that stifles conversation. Whatever you post will go live immediately.

    3. We're tech. We have programmers and web designers/developers on hand to make this forum function really well. If you want something implemented just start a thread or PM me and we can get it done.

    4. Harnesslink is big, but not too big. We're a small company but we have many years of experience running websites which require massive server resources and contain extremely complicated stuff behind the scenes. This means we should have negligible downtime and can act quickly when things go wrong.

    5. Harness racing only. We may introduce a Thoroughbred or Greyhounds forum later if the demand is there, but harness racing will always be the focus.

    6. Finally we will moderate this forum well to ensure it doesn't turn into a place for small minded arguments and insults. We want this to be a valuable resource to the community, and will moderate posts accordingly. Be polite and respectful and you should never even notice.

    I agree with what you are doing with this forum and I hope that this will continue to be a sensible forum with no bad taste between writers. Congratulations on a good looking site and all the best for the future.
