No Chelsea, these posts are indeed NOT allowed. We are just so flooded by them, and management is taking a long fucking hiatus away from the site, so we admins/mods as volunteers (not paid) to run this site without assistance so sometimes threads like this slip passed us. So no, these threads are NOT allowed, and further encourage solicitors.

Honey, this is an international, OPEN forum. You cannot dictate who can or cannot respond, nor can you dictate the responses.

Had you paid attention to site policies, I wouldn't have responded as I did.

Get it?

Ah, I see you failed to understand me.

I don't care what you have to say. Worry about yourself.

Don't like my post? Don't read it!!!

I posted in general. Clearly YOU can't read and see that I am NEW to this site, unlike YOU, who I have noticed, sticks her nose in everyone else's stuff. So GO ON SOMEWHERE besides my posts.

THANKS :))))

But thanks for sending me the link to the work from home group :)

Ah, I see that you failed to read AGAIN:

There is a dedicated Work-from-Home Business Opportunities community on Circle of Moms where you can post about your business and products:


Thanks for you cooperation and understanding. This means no work-from-home recruitment pitches, as well as you asking for people to send you information on opportunities to work from home.

Excuse you Shawnn Lively if you COULD READ you would see that I AM NOT SOLICITING. I'm asking a question about if anyone knows anything that is LEGIT. NO ONE ASKED YOU TO READ MY QUESTION. I saw other questions like mine on here, so OBVIOUSLY they are allowed. So how about you go on about your business and stay out of mine.

Since you obviously did not bother to read site terms prior to posting, I'll provide you with both the link to the post that you didn't bother to read, as well as the text.



Soliciting is not allowed on Circle of Moms, and we have a zero tolerance policy. This means no work-from-home recruitment pitches, no ads for dieting programs, no coupon codes, no personal businesses pitches. If you're seeing these in your community, delete them, and post a note at the top explaining that they are not welcome, so that users who might be tempted to use your group to solicit are discouraged. Here's a note you can pin to the top as a thread:

Our community frowns upon solicitations, so please do not post them here.

There is a dedicated Work-from-Home Business Opportunities community on Circle of Moms where you can post about your business and products:


Thanks for you cooperation and understanding.

Please also send the text above via PM (personal message) to the mom who is posting ads or solicitations. If she solicits again in your community you should send her an Admin Warning, and then block her.

If you see any type of soliciation on a member's profile wall, please contact The Community Management Team by PM with a link to the solicitation: http://www.circleofmoms.com/about_me/437...

A few members have asked us if there are any exceptions, and the answer is: rarely. But here are a few that fall into a gray area, so we want to explain more carefully what you should do.


Posting diaper codes (the poster gets money off diapers for each person who uses her code).

This can be very annoying to members in group forums, especially if lots of people start doing it, so we want to discourage it.

Admins and Mods should delete these posts and tell the OP she can message her personal circle instead (but NOT to PM strangers).

"Vote for my child to win" a contest in which she could win money.

Again, this can be extremely annoying to members in group forums and is almost always off topic.

Admins and Mods should delete these posts and tell the OP she can message her personal circle instead (but NOT to PM strangers).

Creating a community to promote a member's product, service, or business opportunity.

Circle of Moms communities were not designed for business promotion and we will remove any communities created by members for this purpose. We are, however, working on providing a channel for members who wish to connect with others in this way. Please e-mail us with your name and contact information, and we will reach out to you when we are ready to host communities of this nature.


Research requests

When academics or people who claim to be academics post asking members for info or to fill out a survey, their posts should be deleted.

Please then ask them to write to Sascha at the Community Management team (sascha (at) circleofmoms.com) to have their request evaluated. If we determine that they are genuine and well-intentioned we will then have them seek permission to re-post their request directly from the Admin of the specific community, and then it is up to the Admin to decide if it would be interesting or beneficial in some other way to her community.

Requests for donations or money

In general, requests for money are not permitted unless prior permission was given by the group's Admin.

When a member asks others in her groups to give money to a particular charity or cause without seeking permission for the Admin, her post should be deleted unless the cause is directly tied to the group's interests (for example, a Breast Cancer Walk in a Breast Cancer Survivor's Group) AND is shown by the OP to be a legitimate charity.
