SRTFORUM RULES


1. Blatant trolling is not allowed. If you have nothing constructive to offer, DON'T POST!!! (Showoffs/Pictures Section excluded)
2. Post topics in the appropriate section. This is especially important for topics that belong in Off-Topic & Super Off-Topic.

3. No material that is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). This includes posts, avatars & signatures.
  • No pornographic or nude pictures, drawings, animations, etc. or links to sites containing such content.
  • No pictures, drawings, or animations with an overly sexual connotation; ie. no girls bent over wearing a thong.
  • No pictures, drawings, or animations that are graphic in nature; ie. no dead bodies with gruesome injuries.
This type of activity is only allowed in Super Off-Topic


4. Keep thread titles, signatures and avatars "clean". No profanity.

5. If you feel something negative towards a user/post, please try to state your case in a calm and respectable fashion. Replying to the post just to stir the pot and not offering anything of value is highly frowned upon.

6. Vendor "Discussion/Reviewing/Complaints" are allowed. However, it is not allowed to the point that you can make a post in every thread the vendor participates in to ruin his day, etc. Make your thread in whatever section you feel appropriate, state your case, and be done with it. Harassment will not be tolerated.
  • If you do not have vendor status you cannot advertise your products. This includes signatures. If you want to get vendor status, we have the advertise button in the navigation bar. Links to FS threads are allowed. See post #4 for more information.

7. Post whoring is against the rules. If you don't have anything constructive to add, don't add anything. Determining what is Post Whoring is at the sole discretion of the administration team.

8. No personal threats, attacks, or harassment. This includes PMs, posts, signatures, and threads.

9. No puppet/smurf accounts. If you share your computer with other members of this forum, please contact a moderator.

10. The trader rating system is taken seriously on this forum. Abuse of the system is not allowed. If you get a negative rating and you're not happy, PM a moderator and we will look into it. DO NOT LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE LEFT YOU A NEGATIVE FEEDBACK. Do not leave feedback for fun. Positive or negative, it is not allowed.

11. Signatures are limited to 100KB total (includes all images) for regular members and 600KB total for premium members.

12. Usernames cannot be a URL for your website. If you have already registered, and have a user name that is a URL, please contact an administrator to have it changed to something within the scope of our rules.

Bans will be on a case by case basis determined by the Staff.



Subsection rules will be enforced IN ADDITION to these rules. If a subsection's rule contradicts a site rule, the subsection's rule becomes the one to follow.


We'll delete or close anything at our discretion. If this happens, it happens for a reason, therefore DO NOT bring it back up.

Buy/Sell/FT Rules



Any threads and posts not following the rules will be deleted. There will be no more warnings. All FS/WTB/FT threads and posts will be in the designated Buy/Sell sections or we will delete them. Repeated violations will result in infractions.



You must be a member for 90 days and have at least 50 posts to see the Buy/Sell section. Posting FS/WTB/WTT threads prior to gaining access to said section may result in continued denial of access once you meet the 90/50 requirements.

You can gain access prior to meeting these requirements by purchasing a site membership, available here.

D. eBay or other Auctions links - Links to products on eBay or other auction sites will not be tolerated. Items in the buy/sell forum are between community members and we like to give our members first choice on an item for sale.
E. Thread Crapping - Thread crapping is rude and will not be tolerated. If you feel the price is unfair or if you have an issue with the asking price then kindly PM or email the seller to inform them. It will be up to the seller to adjust the price however they see fit.


II. Thread Labels - all posts in the Buy and Sell forums will be labeled with the appropriate prefix, This will aid us in finding or moving you thread to the correct forum if we feel like being nice. If you need a title changed for your thread please contact a Buy/Sell Moderator. Any post that does not contain the correct prefix will be removed.
A. FS: - For Sale
B. FT: - For Trade
C. WTB: - Wanted to Buy
D. GB: - Group Buy
Please be sure to post all threads in the correct section.
III. For Sale Posts (FS:) - All items for sale must include a price. If a price is not present the thread will be deleted, no questions asked.

If you like you can use the following format for your email so search bots don't grab it and then you get spammed:
srtforums at doitlikethis dot com
A. For Sale Post format - All items for sale will use the following format:
What is your name(full first & full last)? :
What is your Email Address OR Contact PH #? :
What is your City? :
What is your State? :
What is your Zip code? :
VIN (for vehicle sales, if this is not included the thread will be deleted):
B. For Sale post pictures - All items for sale require a picture for the buyers safety. Include your screen name AND the date the picture was taken ON A PIECE OF PAPER. The picture must be less than two weeks old at the time the thread is started. YOUR SCREEN NAME AND THE DATE MUST BE ABLE TO BE SEEN AND READ IN THE PICTUREs. Sharpies work best!
C. Paypal - Do not request any additional fee for Paypal, 3% or otherwise when posting items for sale. If you feel the need to cover your loss on a Paypal fee then you as the poster should adjust your asking price to accommodate the fee. (This rule applied to any other similar payment options)
IV. For Trade Posts (FT:) - All items for trade should be listed in for trade forum. Do not include a trade for money, this would make your item for sale and should be listed as a FS thread. For Trade/Want to Trade threads must include a picture (with name/date) in the thread.

VENDOR RULES

Now that the board is officially supporting Sponsors/Vendors, it is time to put the advertising rules into effect.

1. Advertising from non supporting vendors is not allowed. Period. Do not post a link to your site, link to your business, contact information, pricing, etc. Do not attempt to pimp your wares on the forum.

The forum costs money to run, and until you contribute to the forums, you have no place in using it to promote your own business.

2. Non vendor discussion is allowed, but advertising on behalf of a NSV will not be allowed. Any of the following is considered advertising: posting Links, addresses, emails, phone numbers on behalf of the company. Any other excessive discussion will be deleted at moderators discretion. Deleted posts of this type should be discussed through PMs only and are not to be discussed in the open forum.

The line is thin, and we will use our judgment as to when that line is being crossed.

3. Group buys from supporting vendors are allowed. However, group buys from non supporting vendors (especially on products that our supporting vendors sell) will be heavily frowned upon.

4. Business signatures are not allowed from non supporting vendors. This rule also applies to avatars, listings of homepages, and any other profile information.

5. Forum usernames can't contain your business name. We will use our judgement and contact you when we feel a change needs to be made.

It is in your better interest to support your vendors, and in turn, they will be supporting you. This promotes a tight, well supported and funded community which will help promote innovation.

There will be more rules added, for now, I would appreciate it if non supporting vendors would please remove signature images, text, etc. promoting their business.

To become a vendor, email sales@autoforums.com for the information.

Reporting Bad Posts
Below a users name there is a button with an exclamation point on it (). When you click this button a form is generated asking what is wrong with the post and it is sent to the moderators. The form sends an email to the mods with information about why the post is bad and a link to the questionable post.

Your identity is only viewable to the moderators/admins and will not be revealed to anyone else. If a moderator deems there is something wrong with the post they will act upon it. Reporting bad posts or posts that are not following the rules will help keep the forums clean.
