Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on . They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Forum rules

    1. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be given a warning (see policing below). #
    2. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning or a ban. #
    3. Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a Moderator. Please use the “post report” feature to report posts. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who constantly “act” as moderators may be warned. #
    4. Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience about cars. Posting pornographic, racial or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning or ban. #
    5. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. Any posts made that are deemed to be spam, will be deleted. The user who made the posting may also be banned. #
    6. The moderating team reserve the right to edit, remove or delete any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to the Moderators not users. #
  2. Uploading Images/Photos

    1. Currently the forum does not allow the uploading of images/photos. #
    2. You need to have the images stored on a third party site such as http://www.photobucket.com or on your own website.

      Copy the url of the picture, which will looks something like

      CODE: Select all

      www.yourdomain.com/yourpicture.jpeg
      When making you post on this site click the 'Img' button and copy this url into the message box this will wrap the line in image tags and your picture should be displayed.

      CODE: Select all

      [img]www.yourdomain.com/yourpicture.jpeg[/img]
      as an example take my signature I used photobucket.... when you upload it, it tells you under the image the url, or you can right click on the picture and select properties then it tells you the url, you can highlight that link and select copy, the link for my image is http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v15/d ... -1copy.jpg

      so

      CODE: Select all

      [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v15/daz306td/sigs/Untitled-1copy.jpg[/img]
      displays as:

  3. Signatures

    1. Although there are not restrictions currently in place, users are reminded to be aware that signatures appear at the end of every post, and therefore any large images should be reduced in size. #
    2. The moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any signature that is deemed to be against the rules or too large in size. #
  4. Avatars

    1. Avatars should be no larger than 130x130 pixels and no smaller than 20x20 pixels. They should not exceed 12KiB (12288 bytes) in size. #
    2. Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect to the general forum etiquette. #
  5. Advertising/Sponsorship

    1. Any posts that are deemed to be advertising, can and will be removed by the Moderators without any prior notice. #
    2. Any person/company wishing to advertise/become a forum sponsor must contact the admin for further details. #
  6. For Sale

    1. A new user can only post in the For Sale section upon reaching a post count of 20. #
    2. All for sale threads must include the following:
      • Description
      • Price
      • Location
      • A photo which shows the actual item for sale with your username and date wrote on a piece of paper included in the pic
      Failure to meet the above rules may result in your post being deleted without any notice given. #
    3. Please can you all ensure that if your item is SOLD, you edit your title and put SOLD in it. We don't view every topic so posting sold in there does not help.
      All items that have been sold can then be moved to another section. #
