    new Forum Rules Please Read Before Posting

    Changes to the forum rules relating to Traders.
    Last week some changes were implemented that in hindsight were not suitable for this forum. HOWEVER some changes do need to be put into place but having listened to feedback from our users, traders and members in the trade we have designed these changes to have a minimal impact on day to day life.

    So, going forward, if you are a Car builder or bodyshop or other “trade” you may:
    Post build threads
    Sells items (within reasonable quantities, used parts only or single quantity new parts)
    Users may recommend your services.
    Post Pictures.

    You may not:
    Have a commercial Signature or Profile
    Advertise your services on the forum unless specifically asked by a user to post.
    Sell quantities of new parts or repeatedly break cars for spares.
    Sell vehicles that have been purchased simply to resell.

    However, all traders can “upgrade” to a “Sponsor” account. This gives the following benefits
    A larger Private message box
    The ability to sell any quantity of items or vehicles on the forum.
    Access to the trader area to put Company news, adverts, open days, special offers.
    Commercial signature.
    Larger Avatar
    Submission of new stories for the homepage (subject to acceptance)

    Normal users will be able to:
    recommend who they like
    thank who they like
    post build information about their cars.
    Events may also be promoted but only by users. Any commercial organisation wishing to promote must contact Admin first.

    In addition to these changes we will be tightening up the forums bumping and spamming issues. We propose the following changes.

    paypal fees must either be calculated in your price or you must ask the buyer to cover the fees
    asking for paypal via gift in not acceptable

    All For sale adverts must feature the following:
    1. picture of the item and not a library pic
    2. price
    3. location
    4. condition
    5. posted or collection

    The moderators and admin reserve the right to remove any advert that does not comply to the above rules without warning.

    In addition, no replies will be permitted to For sale and wanted threads unless they feature pertinent additional information. Any post featuring text such as “GLWTS” or “I’d have bought this If I had the cash” will be deleted.
    This will ensure adverts do not get artificially bumped.

    Adverts featuring a link to Ebay or other sites instead of a full advert will be deleted.

    if you intend to sell your chassis with a v5c document please check the legality of doing this before hand and ensure it complies to the dvl a point system

    the link is posted here for you to check

    unless you can prove that your chassis complies then the advert will be removed

    Finally, users will need 10 posts before being able to post items for sale. Any “New” traders should be reported.
