Forum Terms & Conditions

Post  Rich on 20/10/2008, 3:10 am

The purpose of this forum is to provide a central point for Southmids Sportsters members, friends and supporters to share their banter, technical tips and
MG-Rover related news.

To keep it this way, the following terms & conditions have been created and by signing up to the forum, you are agreeing to abide by them or risk being blocked or banned completely based on the decision of the
Southmids Sportsters Administration team.

Please Note that there may be modifications anytime,
so we invite you to revisit this section regularly.

General terms
  • Topic titles - When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to it. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem" or “Help" are not helpful so are not encouraged. Capitals should also be avoided.
  • Colours and capitals - When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it signifies shouting and is not very friendly) or colours. Colours are reserved for moderation, so please don't use them heavily.
  • Flooding and repeating - With the exception of the 'Banter' categories, flood must be avoided. One-word posts (for example, 'lol' or 'rofl') and 'Smilies' only should be avoided. In all categories, you should also try to avoid posting the same topic twice. It will not make a difference to the speed you get a response. If you make a mistake, please use the ‘Edit’ button at the top-right of your post to avoid double-posting.
  • Off topic - With the exception of the 'Banter' categories, please try to stay within the topic of the initial posting in all forums. Otherwise, threads can become misleading and especially with technical and model specific threads, their function is compromised.
  • Advertising - Southmids Sportsters members may offer items for sale or wanted providing they are personal advertisements. Trade advertisements or promotions of any kind are not permitted unless agreed by the Administration Team and are subject to a charge.
  • Recommended Suppliers - Only the Administration team can add a recommended supplier to the forum. For a supplier to become recommended, they must have been given a positive testimonial by a full member and have agreed to offer something in the way of a discount or special service available for all Southmids Sportsters members. Please note that the club may be asked to confirm membership of somebody wishing to make use of these services.
  • Technical advice - Southmids Sportsters or it's members cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred as a result of following advice given on this forum. This includes any posts made by trade associates or professional bodies.
  • Security - Any content that relates to the security of vehicles and/or members will be removed immediately, as this forum can be viewed by anyone, including car thieves and other unwelcome visitors.
  • Copyright - All content on this forum is the copyright of Southmids Sportsters. The use of logos, images or other independently copyrighted material may only be used with the express permission of the copyright holder. Written proof of this may be requested at any time by the admin team if deemed necessary.

Behavior on the forum
  • Defamatory, racist, hateful, pornographic, illegal or insulting content must be avoided on this forum. You must respect the fact that people may have a different opinion than you. If you are in conflict with another member, please use PMs for that. Our forum is not an arena!
  • Please be patient. It's useless to up your topic every 2 minutes (see the point 'Flooding and repeating'). Every member of this forum has a private life besides Southmids Sportsters, so they can't always respond immediately.
  • You must respect the moderators and administrators. They all work voluntarily on this forum and they are human, not machines!
  • If you receive trade advertising, pornographic content or insults by PM, you must send the whole copy (including the headers) to a moderator by PM. Posting it in a topic is useless and will only cause conflicts between you and the one who sent you the PM.
  • If you don't find your topic, it may have been moved to a more appropriate place.

Avatars, banners and Profiles
  • Your avatar's width and height must not exceed 150 pixels by 150 pixels. These limits are here to avoid scrolling for people who have a low screen resolution. You must also respect the limit of file size which is fixed to 300 KB. There are still people who have a low-speed connection, and heavy pictures take time to load for them.
  • Your avatar is not an advertising banner. Also, Sexually oriented and gore avatars must also be avoided and will be removed without warning.

Possible sanctions
  • If you use PMs to trade advertise, you may see your PM mailbox disabled for a determined period
  • If your avatar doesn't respect the rules and you ignore the moderator's request to have it changed, the Administrator may forbid you from displaying an Avatar.
  • Trade advertising without agreement as detailed above will result in an immediate ban.
  • Ignoring the moderators' warnings and continuing to not respect the rules, insulting people and trolling may result in a ban according to the gravity of the member's fault.
  • If you have any question about any of the forum rules, please PM one of the Administration team who will respond at their earliest convenience.

Above all, this forum is to be enjoyed... So enjoy!
