As you found your way here please take the time to glance over the Rules.

All Posts are Moderated till further notice:

Show Courtesy and Respect to Other Members

Every member here deserves to be treated with courtesy and respect. Personal attacks, and/or arguing will not be allowed. Treat other members the same way that you would want to be treated.

Posts that contain flames, profanity, personal attacks, and/or arguing will be deleted and your access to the forum may be terminated. Cussing, racial & sexual slurs, and just all-around inappropriate words are not allowed. We have a word filter in use here to help control these. Do not attempt to work around it.

If you have an issue with a member, try to work it out via PM in a CIVIL fashion. The best thing you can do when you see a post that's out of line is "Report, don't Reply."


Trolling, Baiting, and Sarcasm
These are some really bad ones. They are some of the worst things we deal with. Basically, these are all posts with the intent to cause trouble and will not be allowed. Sometimes these are hard for the Staff to recognize. Please follow the "Report, don't Reply" rule here.

Trolling, Baiting, and Sarcasm in Signatures
It's sad when we see members using their signatures to attack, or agitate other members. If we see something we don't understand or don't like it will be removed. Warnings/Infractions may apply

Cheerleading
This is a simple term we use when a member voices his opinion over, and over, and over,.........You get the picture. Cheerleading can be negative or positive. We do our best NOT to limit your discussion, but Please bear in mind that repeating the same thing multiple times can get annoying to members and Staff


Keep your posts on topic.
We're all busy people and nobody wants to spend time wading through lots of purposeless and/or un-needed posts. If you want to go off-topic start a new thread in the appropriate forum.


Choose your text Wisely
In our "text" only world it is easy to read between the lines. The use of the proper text, smilies, and spell checkers is strongly recommended. Before hitting the enter button reread your post a couple of times if needed. Is it actually saying what you want to say?


When starting a new thread make sure your thread title gives the other members an Idea of what the thread is about.
This will make it easier for members to find and respond to your question or comment.


Do not start multiple threads with the same information.
This is called cross-posting and they will be deleted. Members and moderators alike grow tired of reading the same post in multiple forums. For the same reasons do not post the same exact content in multiple threads.

If you post your thread in the correct forum you will most likely get the response you are looking for.


Take a few minutes to look over the forum headings and the content before posting.
This will allow you to put your threads in the best location, and to make sure there isn't already a thread going about your particular issue. This also allows other members looking for the same information to find the post easier, and reply accordingly.


Links to your Clubs, Associations, etc.
Although we allow Links to your "special" sites, we ask that you post the relevant information here also. Some members would simply rather not leave our site. Also if the information is here we do not have to worry about a dead link issue later.

A good example would be posting Information or answering a question on a Club Event or a Dyno Day here and then adding "For more information visit www.******.com". These links still have to meet our Vendor Conflict Rules.


eBay Links, Software and blogs
Links to eBay are ONLY allowed if they are not in conflict with our supporting Vendors.as well promoting your personal site They must also NOT be a listing of the members and must have some relevance to the post or forum they are in.


Special Link Restrictions
From time to time we run on to links that just aren't allowed here. Banned members, private sites, inappropriate content, etc., etc.
We can not list this info individually as it is continually changing, but we will inform you as we see it.


Keep Posted Links Relevant and "Clean"
Do not post links to adult sites/content, etc. Posts with those kinds of links will be removed from the forum and your access to the forum may be terminated. Posted links should be relevant to the thread they are posted in.


Keep Avatars and Pictures Relevant and "Clean"
If you include a picture in your post, please make sure it's relevant to your post. Unnecessary graphics just slow things down for everyone. Posts and Garages with adult graphics will be removed from the forum and your access may be terminated.


Keep Personal Information Private
Never post personal information such as phone numbers, credit card numbers, addresses, etc. This goes for yours and/or someone else's. If you do decide to disclose personal information to someone, send it in a PM. Posts containing personal information may be edited or removed from the forum.


Donation Threads
Donation threads are rarely allowed and must be approved by the staff prior to posting them.


Do Not Post Ads in the Technical Forums
This goes for members and vendors both. We intend to keep technical threads free from posts containing ads and/or pricing. Posts with advertisements will be deleted.

Members that meet the requirements are allowed to post their ads in the Marketplace

Vendors are allowed to make product announcements, without pricing, in the technical forums as long as they have technical content. Posts with pricing should be made in the Vender section forum.


Show Courtesy and Respect to OUR Vendors
Remember that they pay for your privilege of being here. Because of this, we do not allow links and/or contact information to non-supporting vendors. We also ask that you give them the same respect as a regular member.

We have a commentsforum where you can post good or bad feedback for them as long as there is no flaming. We also have a Vvenders forum


Last but not least, "I GOT !!#@!! MODERATED!"
If and when you get moderated, remember that we are people too. We also have a pretty good idea of what it takes to keep things running smoothly around here, BUT if you feel you were wrongly moderated, contact the moderator that did it and talk to them with respect. Work with them to try and understand the reason. If you still find you have issues then contact a member of the Admin Staff.


In no way shape or form do we allow you to complain in public. Not in a thread and not in a signature. This has always proven to be counter-productive in the past."
