Posting and Signature Rules

PostPosted by Administrator » Sat Dec 14, 2013 10:32 pm

Basic Rules of the Forum about Posting


When you registered on the RAV4 Drivers Club, you will have seen a registration file come up, and will have likely never read it again. It is information about what is permissible and what is not on this forum and the legalities of using the Club. This document may get updated periodically, so it is worth having a check occasionally to see if there is anything in there which you may be uncomfortable about or disagree with. The document is question can be found here ==> Registration - RAV4 Drivers Club

To save a little time, the essence of the Posting Rules is that you should remember that on the Internet, we are not in control of who has access to the content of forum posts, so it is worth bearing that in mind when posting.
Just imagine it is your old 85 year old granny just checking your latest posts before heading off to her Church Social Club, and your 13 year old neice is helping her use the computer and reading out your posts to her.
If they happened to be in the same room, would you say what you are typing, using the same words? If not, then probably best not to use them in a post.
Note that there are some word censors in place within the forum; these are not extensive so individual judgement should still be excised and if a word does get altered due to the censor, no attempt should be used to bypass or 'fool' the swear filter. The offending post may be deleted without notice if this happens.
The RAV4 Drivers Club is a family-friendly forum and the posts should be treated in the same way. There is the "spoiler" code that can be used if a level of 'stronger' language is needed.
Also please be minded of unfair castigating and stereotyping groups, be that nationalities, races, religious groups and others. It is probably true to say that within any group there tends to be a range from good to bad, and there is no need to tar a whole set of individuals with the same brush.
We expect members to not post negative or offensive reviews and comments about the RAV4 Drivers Club or its members on other internet forums and websites or indeed on this forum itself. If a member has an issue with another member or the admin team, then this should be discussed internally with that member or admin team. If a member is found to be in breach of this, then the forum reserve the right to remove that member from the forum, either on a temporary or permanent basis, and there may not be any notice period or prior warnings given, depending on the severity of the breach of the agreement.
We appreciate your cooperation on this.

The RAV4 Drivers Club rules prohibit the use of an alter-ego/alternate ID for ANY purpose. The policy of this forum is that each Member has a single user ID unless otherwise agreed with the Forum Administrator. If a Club Member wishes to change their user name, then a request can be made to the Admin and this will be arranged. It is not neccessary to create a new ID. Any member who contravenes this rule can expect any and all of their IDs to be banned or suspended


Basic Rules of the Forum about Signatures


If you would like to be actively promoting and selling things commercially here that are to do with RAV4s, Toyotas or Cars in general, (i.e. It is your living) then you need to become an Club Sponsor on the RAV4 Drivers Club in order to do so, or if you you want to put a URL/Web Address to your employer :good:
Alternatively you could be a Club Partner, which allows you to have a single dedicated page with a link to your business, and a banner advert.
We hope both Club Sponsors and Club Partners also provide a tangible benefit to the club membership by way of a discount on good and services. To Enquire about Club Sponsorship and Club Partnerships, please contact the Club Admin on admin@rav4driversclub.com

If you are a small business (5 or less employees including self) that is VAT-Registered, then you may put in a commercial link as part of your signature to "test the water" for response, but we would ask that after the trial period of around 2-3 months, you either become a Club Sponsor/Partner, or remove the link, depending on your conclusions of the trial.

If you are simply selling unwanted goods, you are making/modifying odd things on a private basis for 'pin money' and that RAV4 Club members may benefit from (say modified platforms for the boot of a RAV4 to keep the Spare Wheel under?), or are a non-VAT registered Sole Trader, then we would ask you to be a Registered Club Supporter - This will give you access to the Trading Post to create 'For Sale' Adverts and you are welcome have a URL/Web Address to your own website/Facebook page you may be using to promote this :good: Please note that we will operate a "Fair Usage" policy and should we feel the amount of 'For Sale' adverts is excessive, we may ask that you become a Club Sponsor, which will provide you with the ability to create unlimited adverts within your own dedicated sales area.

If you want to include a simple URL/Web Address link to your own Personal Website then (not withstanding the above) that is also fine. To do this, you do not necessarily need to be a Club Supporter, just a registered Member of the Forum :good:
If you would like to add a reciprocal Address back to this site on your website, that would be brilliant, but by no means mandatory :s_wink
We do ask members to be active participants of the Forum if they use the signature area for promotion (and of course, if they are not, then their signature does not really get seen anyway!)

Note, if you want to have a Graphical Image in your signature for any of the above, then we request that this image be no larger then the typical half-banner (468x60) size.

What we will not allow are URL/Web Addresses to sites of a Dubious Nature. These include, but not necessarily limited to, X-Rated Sites, indirect links to X-Rated Sites, or Any Sites or Organisations created to prey on the unfortunate, such as PayDay Loan Companies, Ambulance Chasers or PPI Repayment Companies, or to sites that advertise them :s_no
The Forums Management reserve the right to request removal of any signatures they deem inappropriate.

So Basically, pretty standard stuff. Any Questions, or if you are unsure, just ask :s_smile

Admin.
