    The Rulez of Nottz Strip

    Post by Admin on Tue Nov 10, 2009 1:18 pm

    Rules and Charter

    Its only a matter of time before someone from the police joined the site as they are trying to clamp down on "illegal gatherings" and "street racing". Other forums make it very clear that they do not condone street racing and so do we.Save it for track days etc, please do not speak about this on the forum, enjoy the forum.

    We like to share our home with all you good members. In order to ensure things run smoothly we do ask you to adhere to the Rules and Charter – kind of like wiping your feet before you come in and respecting our home.

    By becoming a member you agree to adhere to the charter and Rules. These guidelines are subject to change and a current version is always available in the forums. Members that violate these rules may be suspended or banned. While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

    First of all let me introduce you to the folk that help make the nice place that it is. By all means feel free to contact them by private message if you have questions.

    You may also come across Chief. This shadowy figure is somewhat of a legend in circles and is only ever spoken about in hushed tones. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe Chief can help.

    And lastly Sheriff is the rooting, tooting, gun slinger. He spends most of his time at the ranch but can and will ride into town to hand out his own unique style of outlaw justice or even just to say……….Howdy Partners!


    General Behaviour
    Please do not join with a business name , if deemed it to be Business related it will be edited or deleted.
    All users under the age of 16 must seek permission from their parent or guardian in order to gain membership of the forums. While we welcome participation from members under 16, we require that a parent or guardian fax or mail back a signed permission form before we grant membership.

    Your username may not be more than 16 letters and/or digits long. If you set up a username longer than this the moderators off the site will amend it and you will be notified by email.
    Although the Administrators and Moderators will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, we cannot be responsible for message content. All messages express the views of the author. The owners, admin and moderators of the forum accept no responsibility for the views expressed within this forum by the authors/members.

    The owners or the representatives may remove; edit, move, or close topics they feel do not follow the rules. This is our house, and the house rules are not open to discussion on the forum if you do not like the way our house is run then we would advise you not to come in.

    We are not responsible for anything you do as a result of information or advice obtained at this site.

    Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. NB Registering an additional account to overcome a suspension will only result in a longer ban.

    This is a family forum, please use good judgement when choosing user names, avatars, or images to post, and do not attempt to bypass the word filter. It is there for a reason. Any thread with questionable content, should be labelled as such in the topic title. E.g. NWS (not work safe). If the post is not marked then a moderator may change or edit your post to suit.
    Use your judgment to post in the correct forum section. Any post not in the correct section may be moved without prior notice to the correct forum.
    Personal attacks, rudeness, flaming, baiting, insults to others, or arguments will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Please refrain from making excessive negative comments. As the saying goes "If you have nothing nice to say then don't say it".
    Any member who threatens anyone on the forum, via PM, instant messengers, or Email, will be banned immediately without notice. We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice. Our decision is always final in these matters.

    If you break the rules in any way then you may be dealt with accordingly. This can range from a suspension for a number of days to an instant ban. If you repeatedly break the same rule your account will be at risk of a permanent ban.

    Posting of copyright material is strictly forbidden and will be removed without notice. (Unless of course permission has been granted by the author or credit to the author has been given as per the terms of a licence/contract for usage.)
    Blatant spamming of threads is not allowed and any such posts will be removed without notice, please also keep on topic.

    Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
    Please make sure you have permission to show somebodies numberplates in photographs posted on here - with the advent of cloning we suggest that numberplates are masked out

    Reposts: Members posting useful topics are to be encouraged.

    Anyone found to be repeatedly complaining about topics being posted simply because they have seen them already, are liable to receive an infraction, or a visit to the sin bin. If you have seen a post already, please move on and look at another thread. For every member who has already seen something there's likely 10 members who haven't, and for them it's not a repost at all, so no need to make the thread starter feel bad for contributing to the site.


    Any post or thread may be removed at a moderator’s discretion without informing the post / thread author of the reason. We simply do not have the time nor the inclination to pm every member whose post we choose to moderate – roll with it! (please do not question moderating decisions on the forum (if you have a query contact a moderator/ admin via pm)


    The Owners, Administration and Moderators accept no responsibility for any information that is posted by members that could result in legal action against that member.
    Any Defamatory Comments made are those of the post writer and not of the Forum owners or administration team. We will accept no responsibility for any defamatory comments made by members that could result in legal action against that member.

    Approved traders are forum sponsors and we accept no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for any transactions or disagreements that may occur, these must be dealt with directly with that company.

    Supporters are forum sponsors and we accept no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for any transactions or work carried out by that party.

    Management team cannot be held responsible for any work carried out my any member and any related information with our logo on not approved by us in advance

    No advertising or selling of any kind allowed in the forums, this is not eBay. Any direct links or referrals to Ebay sellers for products that the site's approved traders stock are not permitted. Links to items are allowed, but if at all unsure, PM a Moderator/Admin to confirm it's okay before posting it on the forum. Links to your own Ebay items are not permitted under any circumstances and could result in a ban. If you are interested in advertising. Your signature/avatar/profile is not a place to advertise your business, website, forum, etc. Anything considered to be advertising or "spam" will be removed without notice.
    "How much is this worth" type threads which could easily lead to a sale for the poster are not allowed, the only leeway on this is if the poster has a paid subscription to the for sale section, in which case the moderator will use his discretion as to if they should delete the thread or not.

    Please do not add your website to your profile if it is a business.

    While we do not mind users mentioning other forums, blatant advertising or repeated bumping of posts with a web address within will not be tolerated. Any advertising with commercial links to any other business than approved traders can be deleted without notice( Please do not advertise your own business without prior consent from a site owner)
    Advertising Commercial Link back's will be removed if deemed advertising (without notice) and is at the discretion of the Admin and Moderation team

    Unintentional advertising will also be removed and includes: ‘Help me with my website’ style threads, Pictures of company vehicles within threads, Watermarked pictures with company logos and Pictures of people wearing company logo’s clothing
    Any thread that is deemed a paid work will be removed (without notice) -If you are doing paid details then please subscribe as a Supporter where you can freely advertise your work
    Group Buys

    Permission must always be sought from a moderator before commencing a Group Buy. If what you propose to buy clashes with what an approved trader sells then it is unlikely you will be given permission.

    The Group Buy organiser is to supply their full name, address and contact details BEFORE being allowed to organise a Group Buy.

    The Group Buy organiser is to have a minimum post count of 200 posts
    The Group Buy organiser is to have a minimum duration of 3 months membership
    The Group Buy description must clearly contain a FINAL price, including shipping and a timescale be provided for guidance (this is always difficult, as it does change give or take, but people need to know what timescales they're looking at)
    Group Buys's must not exceed 65 days, to allow for paypal disputes to be opened, credit card charge backs issued etc
    Group buys are run by members and whilst we will try to help if there is a disput we accept no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for any transactions.

    Personal Sales

    A Personal Sale includes used items and may include the odd new item but should not contain multiples of a new item. Personal sales are not to be advertised elsewhere unless clearly stated and not under any circumstances to be touted by pm.
    A subscription is not necessary unlike other forums - details can be found in the sales section. Unsubscribed persons must not attempt to trade on the forum or by private message and must not carry a link to a trading website
    A photograph of the goods being sold must be displayed, with username on a piece of paper, helps to stop people selling goods they don't actually have.
    The Price must be clearly outlined at the start of the post. The price is entirely up to the thread starter and if you do not agree with the price – then simply do not pay it! The price must include postage (to UK) and a discount can be offered for collection at buyers discretion. The first person to offer the ASKING price gets the goods even if there are offers already tabled but not accepted.
    All dealings are to be done on the thread and no private messages. All offers are then visible and nothing 'underhand' will go on.
    If you have a problem with a transaction or the thread goes ‘off topic’ please contact a moderator for advice.
    Personal sales are run by members and whilst we will try to help if there is a disput we accept no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for any transactions.

    Approved Traders/Forum Sponsors
    These can trade in multiple new (and used!) products as they see fit on the forum. However any 'promotion of products' is to be kept to their individual section. Links to websites are allowed in their profiles and signatures. A trader after contacting a member of the mod/admin team can start a Group Buy on a product that they sell should they wish.
    To those who wish to become an Approved Trader please contact US by private message (pm).

    A Supporter has paid a subscription to carry a signature linking to their website or Company .NB this does not include retail sales. The Supporter can also carry their link in their profile. Again this subscription can be found in the user control panel in your user profile.
    The Supporter can also change their username to reflect their business or company. New Members can no longer register with a business name. Older members who joined with a business name have been allowed to keep them - call it Grandfather rights but you have to draw a line in the sand at some point!
    Given that a Supporter pays for these advertising rights other members will not be allowed to advertise their 'paid' services either through their profiles or through posting in topics where persons have requested a recommended.

    What is Talked about / posted within the Business section stays within the Business section and is not for the public forum.

    We hold no responsibility for any work carried out by the supporters
    Insurance and public liability is upto said supporter and not down to again please make sure you check out the companies carefully and that you are fully happy with the service they provide

    Thanks for reading and enjoy
