Forum Rules

Below are some simple rules and guidelines that you are required to know and obey as a member of G35DRIVER.COM Forums. We require these rules for the security and status of the board and for your own safety. Your cooperation with these rules will help us keep the board a fun place to visit. Please visit us often as we enjoy your presence and input.

By viewing our forums you have agreed to the following rules:


1. PORNOGRAPHY
This or any "not work safe" material is strictly prohibited. Posting, requesting or trading of such will lead to being banned. There are also borderline sites and/or pictures which we choose to ban; if you post one of these, the post will be deleted, do not repeat or you will be banned. If you find a thread that contains pornography, it should be reported to the staff by using the 'report a post' icon.

2. DISCRIMINATION
The forum has people from many walks of life. People's religion, race, political beliefs, age etc., vary immensely. Please be mature and caring towards others. Offenders will receive one warning only and failure to comply after that will result in being banned. If you have a personal problem with someone on the forum resolve it by private messaging. - NOT on this board or posting in the forum. G35DRIVER.COM will not tolerate abuse of another member.

3. OTHER G35 FORUMS/SITES
You are not allowed to post links to other G35 forums or sites, unless the topic on hand is related to the topic elsewhere, but you must link directly to the topic, not the site itself. We pride ourselves on the information available here and on our integrity. We will not be affiliated with any other forum which may have lesser standings on rules and policies. Anyone caught spamming another site whether by PM or in the forums, will be banned.

4. PERSONAL INFORMATION
Do not post your or others personal information of any kind, including IP addresses. Apart from anything else, this is for board security and your security. You may post your personal e-mail/homepage address, understanding that it is viewable in the public domain.

5. APPROPRIATE FORUMS
Please post your topics in the appropriate forums. This makes it easier for all members as well as the forum staff. Any post that is in the wrong section will be moved without notice.

6. FORUM SECURITY
Any attempt that is made to gain unauthorized access to our Gallery, database or server will result in your IP address being automatically banned from the forum. As will any attempt to brute force another Member/Moderator/Admin account. This action will be taken immediately and is required for security purposes. We log all IP addresses so can easily find out who is doing what and pass on these details to the relevant authorities if necessary.

7. SEARCH FUNCTION
Please use the search function before posting or asking a question. It is a much more efficient and quicker way of getting your question answered. Another reason is to reduce the amount of duplicate posts and to conserve some server space.

8. MEANINGLESS POSTS
Do not post any meaningless roll call posts, or any posts that is a waste of server resources and bandwidth. They are not allowed and will result in your post count being set to zero. Applicable to this rule is abuse of the "Thanks" system, which is intended to note posts that are exceptionally useful have made positive contributions to the forum.

9. COMMERCIAL/PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL

No commercial or promotional materials or links are permitted in posts or signatures. Any posts or signatures that can be construed as; competition to our sponsors or G35DRIVER.COM or as obvious traffic stealing posts "may" be removed without notice.

Any insults or harassment towards staff members will result in instant banishment.

11. SIGNATURES

Please keep signature text and picture sizes within the limits of the signature rules. Signatures load on every post, so size impacts the page load time (especially for those on dial-up). Do not place any advertisements in your signature unless you are an approved sponsor. Please see detailed Signature Rules  here.

12. POLLS

Polls older than 2 months old will be locked. The reason for this is to make space for newer threads. Polls are bumped every time someone votes; that can cause it to stay on the 1st page all the time.

- VIN searches
The Carfax EULA'S specifically address the issue of one subscription, one user. We have been asked (by Carfax) in the past to remove such request(s).

14. SPAMMING
Do not post the same or similar thread in multiple forums. This is waste server space and resources. Post your thread in one place only. It will be seen.

15. REHASHING

Do NOT make another post in continuation of the locked/deleted posts or your account is subject to being banned. Do NOT make a new post demanding explanation of why a post was locked or deleted. If you would like explanation of a closed or deleted post, PM one of the moderators.

Discussions revolving graphically sexual situations, [promoted use of] drugs and/or drug paraphernalia, intended or executed criminal activity, etc. will be deleted from the forum and bans issued (where applicable), so please refrain from such content. Forum content also includes language. Although there is an automatic filter that censors inappropriate/profane language, intentional attempts to bypass this filter will result in one warning and then a ban (Anything Goes forum is exempt). The language filter is implemented for a purpose, thus it should not be intentionally circumvented. Please use common sense when posting pictures. Nudity, gore, violent acts (and results thereof) amongst other images are not allowed. Please note that this includes pictures in your avatar and/or signature. This is a public site, accessible by minors as well. So please keep all viewable pictures/avatars/signatures under the common PG rating.

22. MULTIPLE USER ACCOUNTS
Multiple user accounts are not permitted. Any member discovered with multiple accounts will be subject to immediate banishment.

Vendors are allowed to have a personal account in addition to their vendor account, however they are not allowed to post in their vendor threads, conduct business, or in any way act in the capacity of their company from their personal account. This would include bumping their own vendor thread from their personal account, and/or providing "feedback" on their own company from their personal account. Violation of this rule will be grounds for immediate banishment of the vendor's personal account, and may result in the vendor account itself coming under review.

23. NAVIGATION / VIDEO BYPASS
Navigation / Video Bypass Hack Threads are Not Allowed, they will be removed without notice - For additional details Please Read.

24. INFRACTIONS and WARNINGS
Infractions or warnings are issued for misbehavior or for breaking the Terms of Use (TOU) rules. Multiple infraction points will result in banishment.
Subsequent or repeated infractions will result in increasing levels of banishment, ultimately resulting in permanent banishment. These infraction points are permanent and non-expiring.


G35DRIVER.COM reserves the right to change these rules at any time and the staff's word is final.


If you receive an e-mail/private message from a "Moderator" addressing behavioral issues please don't take it as a personal attack. The Staff of G35DRIVER.COM are here to assist with making this site run smoothly and this means from time to time Staff may offer corrective suggestions and/or advice.

Rules as stated above apply to ALL forums within the G35DRIVER.COM Forums community however; certain forums contain rules in ADDITION to those set out above. You must also adhere to the applicable individual rules when you post in that particular forum. Individual forum rules will be found in that forum as an announcement.

Please feel free to report any posts that you feel are in violation of the terms set forth. Use the "Report this Post to a Moderator" method or a moderator you see online. Either way is acceptable and appreciated.

In short, any unsuitable attitudes or lack in common sense will a be violation of the rules. Any violations could end up banning you from this board and also from "the system"!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and familiarize yourself with our forum rules, policies and guidelines. And thank you for your cooperation regarding changes in the rules. We understand that all Members make up this G35 community and we hope that by placing a few rules in effect that we can continue to make an enjoyable G35DRIVER.COM experience.
