Forum Guidelines/Rules

Post by Simon »


This is a moderated site, which means that there are a few simple rules in place to ensure that everyone is free to enjoy the community here without fear or favour.

All activities on this site including BUYING and SELLING are done so with Caveat Emptor (LET the BUYER BEWARE) ALL TRANSACTIONS in this Forum are done so at your own risk and the owner,administrators and moderators take NO responsibility for any aspect of any item or transaction that may take place via this website.

The site is provided mainly for the benefit of those wishing to discuss the Dmax and Colorado (but not exclusively Dmax /Colorado ) but an area is provided in General Other Chit Chat for other non Ford and non automotive related discussion that is of general interest to the community. This is NOT a free for all area and posts that either don't meet the criteria listed below may be removed at the discretion of the moderation team.

1. No commercial advertising or advertising of businesses is permitted. Phone numbers or web links etc are strictly forbidden. There is a SPONSORS advertising section on the forum so if anyone would like to promote a specific business then please contact us about advertising space.

If you have a problem with a particular company DO NOT post it up on the forum. This is easily construed as slander and bears legal ramifications. There are always two sides to every story and without the other party's view it unfair to post your issues.
You may link to other websites in posts, if it is relevant to the topic at hand but not purely for the purpose of promoting a business, product or website. If you want to tell people about a particular website do so via PM.

Newbies Please Read
2. Attention new members before posting a new thread (for technical advice etc) please use the search function to make sure it hasn’t been discussed before. This will not only save embarrassment but also keeps the forum tidy and saves space.

3. Harrasment, abuse or threatening other forum members will NOT be tolerated (doing so will result in an instant ban!).
Please be aware that no racist or personal attacks will be tolerated. The forum is here for all of us to share, so please have respect for all users.

4. These forums are definitely a G-rated place. Please, consider when you post here, whether you'd like your own kids or your mum to see it... if the answer's no, it shouldn't be posted here.
Links to porn sites or the posting of pornographic pictures is strictly prohibited and this also includes avatars. If you link to offensive websites, you WILL be banned, without warning.

5 This site is for all to enjoy so foul language and swearing are not welcome and if this occurrs you will recieve a warning and a possible few days ban or even total banning if the offence is deemed serious by Admin or Moderators.

6. Trolling will NOT be tolerated and will result in a weeks ban and if recurring a total ban and the three strikes rule will apply. After the third time we will assume you are only here to cause trouble and you'll be banned for good.

7. Moderators are here to keep the forum enjoyable for all so if you have an issue and aren't happy with a Moderator do not argue the point on the Forum, this will result in an immediate ban.
Please contact admin with your greivance and any relavent info to resolve any issues.

8.Posting of Spam will not be tolerated eg; illegal or inappropriate content and or flooding of the boards will result in an immediate ban.

9. Signatures are to remain a reasonable size and not to have overly large images and are not to have annoying animations.

10. Avatars are not to be more than 90x90 pixels and are to be 6 kb or smaller in size plus not to be an annoying animation.

For Sale
11. All adds must state a price, location, contact details or else they will be deleted
12. Auction style sales on these forums are not permitted, if you would like to auction an item please use Ebay.
13. Posting items for sale in any other section other than the For Sale sections is not permitted and multiple posts for the same item is a no go.
14. Businesses are not to post in any section of the forum and this INCLUDES in the for Sale Section. Doing so wil will result in an instant, and permanent, ban.
15. Individuals are NOT permitted to sell more than one of the same item, unless prior arrangement is made first with ADMIN or MODS . This will be deemed as a company/business conducting commercial activities on the forum, which attracts a ban.
16. Last but not least if you are purchasing an item make sure you are dilegent and get all the details of the purchase and deal through a proper email address, eg no yahoo/hotmail accounts and ask for a phone number preferably not a mobile and even a copy of their drivers license.

17. This site works on the system of three warnings including temporary bans and after the third warning you will be permanently banned
