    Post Forum Rules and Guidelines

    Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

    User Accounts
    Only ONE account may be registered per person. If you have forgotten your user-name or password, or wish your name to be changed, please contact a member of the admin team.

    The Administrator Account
    Please note that this user account is unmanned. Please do not send private messages etc to this account - they will not be read. If you need to contact a member of the admin team, please use the Report Post button or select a human administrator from here.

    Posting New Threads & Use of the Search Function
    Please use the Search Function

    A search of the forums should tell you if a user has already posted a question or answer corresponding to your query. With regards to technical information, many of the questions have already been asked and answered already. Searching is quicker and easier than posting and waiting for someone to reply. Be prepared to be told off if you don't search properly first.

    Posting a new Thread

    If you don't find the answer you're looking for, and can't find a similar thread to post your question in, post a new thread in the appropriate forum section, being careful to lay out your questions clearly.

    Giving Technical Advice
    Please ensure that you think carefully before giving any technical advice.

    Clear and Accurate information is helpful to other members.

    Poor information not only reflects badly upon you, it can also be dangerous/costly to other members. If you don't know what you're talking about, don't post replies. If you heard it from your mates uncle, do not state it as fact.

    Behavior & Appropriate Content
    We have a strict 'G' Rating
    Offensive, explicit, abusive or threatening posts are not appropriate on these boards.

    Illegal Activities?
    Discussing any sort of illegal activities such as street racing, warez, pirating music / software etc is not permitted. By posting such material you put yourself and the group at risk of legal action. And No, you don't have a "private" road or track where you filmed your speedo going from 0 to 200km/h.

    Police read this forum on the lookout for objectionable material. We are obligated to provide them with user information and IP addresses if asked.


    Please do not post "callout" threads to contact someone. If they won't answer their PMs they are probably busy. The rest of the world doesn't need to know about it.

    Reporting Inappropriate Posts
    Below ever post you will see this symbol - , the "Report Bad Post" feature.

    Use this if you feel a post is inappropriate or offensive. A forum moderator or admin will check out the post as soon as possible.

    Signatures & Avatars


    Signatures come under the same forum rules as posts. They mustn't contain offensive materials.

    Once set, signatures appear under every post that you make. Keep in mind that others may not want to read a load of bullocks every time you post.

    - Limit of 150 characters

    - Images are not allowed.

    Any signatures not complying with these guidelines will be removed without warning.

    An Avatar is a small picture displayed below your user name on all posts that you make.

    - Maximum size is 114 by 114 pixels and 60 KB

    - Picture must comply with our 'G' rating.

    Inappropriate signatures & avatars will be removed without warning.

    Additional Rules

    As a member of this forum, it is your job to:

    1a. Be Polite and courteous to all members, including new ones.

    2a. Provide information to other members when requested (yes, sometimes even when the question has been asked before)

    3a. Further to point #2a, try to provide *correct and accurate* information when requested, if you don't know, you probably shouldn't answer.

    4a. Use the "report this post" function when you see a post you believe is rude/inappropriate, in the wrong place or otherwise should not be on this forum.

    5a. Follow a direction or warning from an admin member.

    6a. Respect the fact that people may not have your level of knowledge and may ask what YOU consider to be dumb questions, refer to 1a.

    It is NOT your job nor duty to:

    1b. Fly off the handle when someone asks a question that has been asked before, please refer to point 1a.

    2b. (further to #1b) See who can be first in with the picture, it doesn't make you cool.

    3b. Express how much you "would love to buy this item but don't have the money"

    4b. "Free bump" other people's threads.
