6speedonline.com Forum Rules
Welcome to 6speedonline.com
Thank you for registering. 6speedonline was one of the first Porsche websites, and over the years has reached thousands of enthusiasts. We all share the same passions and we are all here to learn and help each other. While we hope that you'll become an active participant and join in our discussions, you're welcome to simply lurk until you are ready to participate.
Please review the terms of service. By participating in this forum, you agree to the following terms: http://www.internetbrands.com/ib/ter...peedonline.com
You also agree to abide by guidelines and rules specific for 6speedonline.com. These were created for the benefit of our all our members to protect the best interest of the forum. Please read them carefully.
Respect Your Fellow Member
6speed allows all members to participate in a enthusiastic forum. As such, please post and comment respectfully to fellow members. This applies to both vendor/sponsors and members alike. We invite and encourage a healthy exchange of opinions; disagreements are okay. While you may challenge another member's position with a dissenting opinion, name-calling, insults, "flaming" and attacks are not appropriate and will not be tolerated. Post commentary respectfully...harassing, offensive, vulgar, abusive, hateful or bashing communications, especially those aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, color, religious or political views, national origin, or disability, will not be permitted. Such actions will be sanctioned by the moderators.
Although the administrators and moderators will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. Please report any posts that violate forum rules. 6speed administrators and moderators reserve the right to remove or edit any post that does not relate to the topic being discussed or is considered inappropriate on the board or are deemed to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members
The following will result in a permanent ban with no exceptions.
* Abuse or disruption of our services.
* The impersonation of 6speed staff.
* Non sponsoring advertising of third party services or websites
Non Supporting Vendor
Non supporting vendors may use 6speed as a member, but are restricted from advertising or promoting any companies, products or services in any way. The use of logos, images, active links, or any other means to advertise promote or obtain potential business while participating on the message board will not be allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, all posts and threads, signatures or user names, profiles, or messaging systems (private or public.)
Sale of Items
Please be advised that members need 30 posts and one month of membership before placing items for sale. No "want to buy" threads or items for sale may be posted outside of the Marketplace.
Please familiarize yourself with the guidelines for the marketplace which are stickies on the top of the marketplace forums: Updated: Marketplace rules
Please note, these rules apply to all marketplace forums as well as the watches section.
Posting Links and Photos
While links to useful information is encouraged, we ask that embedded links to other blogs, forums, or non sponsored websites be broken. You can do so by unclicking "automatically parse links in text" to prevent active embedding.
If your only contribution to the board consists of links to your youtube videos, your posts will be removed and your account will be sanctioned.
There have been many changes to the photograph policy on this website. We have opened up all the forums to all photographs, including those with watermarks, with the following exception. If it is obvious that your photograph watermarks are intended to promote a non sponsoring commercial business, another forum, or they are a URL for a point of sale the images will be removed.
Registration of Multiple Accounts
Members may register one account. You may not share accounts with others. If you wish to change your user name, you may do so once by contacting the moderators. Those members who create multiple accounts will have all accounts banned, and IP addresses potentially block.
Many of the best Porsche tuners and vendors are available through 6speedonline. Those members who have an active dispute with a vendor are strongly encouraged to take the matter up and exhaust all options before bringing it online to the forum. Flame threads are largely disruptive, and will be closed until both sides can come to a resolution.
Oftentimes, a particular item may generate interest for a group buy. Please contact a moderator to seek approval prior to posting a group buy.
In the event your account has been banned by 6speed moderators, you may return once the duration of the ban has expired. Any member that re-registers during a ban period will be permanently ban.
As a forum member, you agree not to collect e-mail addresses or post personal information about people. You also agree not to insult or molest other members via private messages or e-mail. Lastly, you agree not to include or embed in any post any applet, script, object, application, or code of any kind that captures, copies, or collects information.
Rules for Vendors
Vendors, please post advertisements for products in the classified sections in either the Porsche forums or in the Marketplace. We encourage all vendors to participate in general threads. You have a wealth of information and experience...please share. If you have new products or announcements, or simply wish to participate in general discussions, feel free to post in the general open forums.
Please refrain from direct confrontation with other vendors. Posts that incite vendor wars, solicit customers in competing vendor's threads, or piggyback advertisements for non sponsoring vendors will be removed.
