Starting Topics

Before you start a thread, check to see if a similar thread has already been started. Duplicate threads will be closed. Please make your title descriptive, reflecting the topic you're addressing, rather than a generic title such as "Question" or "I Need Help."

 

Linking to Other Sites

Please do not use the forum to advertise competing message boards or websites. There is a facility to put a link to a website on your profile.

Posting Referrals links for personal gain is strictly prohibited.

 

Any scheme which offers a prize/reward/cash for you queuing up and referring other people is not permitted on this site and will be deleted. e.g Pyramid schemes, lottery based pyramid schemes, Ipod bidding schemes etc.

 

Signatures

One Image maximum, which must be no bigger than 300 x 60 and does not exceed 4k in file size. Text lines which should be no more than 4 lines long and should use the normal size font.

 

Quotes

Please don't quote a whole post to simply add "I agree" or "lol," or a smile. Please don't "quote" images when you reply to a post, which makes the image appear over and over again on the same page. When quoting another post, kindly select only the words that specifically apply to your response.

Never change the words quoted, to suit your own reply.

 

Please do not "bump" a thread up on the board, or simply post to say, "Good morning," "Good night," "I sent you an email” etc., without adding anything new to the discussion.

 

Shouting and Crazy Text

Please do not post in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS; this is the Internet version of shouting, and is irritating to many posters. PlEAsE dO nOt PoSt LiKe ThIs (it makes posts extremely hard to read), and don't get carried away with excessive punctuation (posting dozens of exclamation marks, etc.). It's also a good idea to run long posts through a spell check; doing so demonstrates respect for your fellow posters, which will make them more willing to listen to what you have to say. Please post in plain language avoiding the use of text abbreviations oftern called ‘Text Speak’

 

Obscenity

Contributors are prohibited from posting obscene language including swearing or masked swearing, and images on the forum. Please use polite alternative words. Moderators will remove any obscene language or images that the board filters do not catch. Links to websites that contain pornography of any kind will also be removed. If you find a posting offensive then please use the report button.

 

 

Attacks on Other Contributors

Vicious attacks on other contributors will not be tolerated including personal attacks on character, intelligence, etc.

Attack the post, not the contributor. Any personal disputes between contributors should be taken to private email messages. If you are attacked by another contributor, please do not retaliate. If you have a problem with a moderator, do not air your concerns on the boards; send an email to webmaster@speedway-forum.co.uk

 

Trolls

A troll is a contributor whose sole intent in posting is to be a disturbance to the community. Trolls may post excessively inflammatory or offensive messages with the intention of upsetting people, "flame" or insult, crash an appreciation thread to attack the subject being appreciated, or post the same message repeatedly on multiple boards to take up space and disrupt the forums. Posters engaging in this type of behaviour lose their rights of membership and will be removed.

 

Anonymity

Public forums are can be abused by users who post behind a veil of anonymity. It is commonly thought that if you do not leave your email address, nobody knows who you are, and therefore (by some people's logic) you can say whatever you want. However, this sense of anonymity is misguided. All posts in this forum are branded with the IP address (Internet identification) of the originating computer. This provides recourse for tracking down those who consistently choose to misuse this service and details may be passed on to third parties for legal purposes.

 

Please refrain from allowing anyone else to use your account and do not create duplicate accounts on the forum.

 

Stay Safe

The Forum is a great community filled with wonderful people. It's easy to feel as if the people you talk to every day online are friends whom you can trust. However, not everyone is trustworthy.

 

Don't give out personal details, photographs, or any other information that could be used to identify you, such as information about your family, where you live or the school you go to.

 

Never arrange to meet someone you've only ever previously met on the Internet without first telling your parents, getting their permission and taking a responsible adult with you. The first meeting should always be in a public place.

 

Please be nice to all members and the sport we love. Speedway needs as many supporters as possible, think about how to help promote the sport rather than risk damaging it. Constrictive criticism and suggestions on improvement rather than negative and damaging attacks.
