» Local race Chat Forum Guidelines

Updated 10/26/2007

Most Important to Remember:

  1. If you plan on leaving negative feedback towards a Track or anyone else on this board. You need to leave your NAME in the post. If this is not done and you only want to remain Anonymous your post will be DELETED!! This is NOT a forum to openly bash individuals, tracks, or officials. As always, we ask that subjects be related to racing, and if you have something to say, please do it in a respectful way.
  2. Please note that we do not allow advertising, on this board without being a paying advertiser holding a Banner spot or paying A monthly advertising fee. If a flood of advertisement occurs, the advertiser and the posts will be deleted from this Message Board. (See Text Signatures for allowed advertising)
  3. Local Race Chat has spent many hours working to build their member base. We ask that you do not spam our members through posts, private messages, emails, or any other attempt to disrupt their time here. If you are reported doing such we will disable your posting privileges until your account is reviewed.

Classifieds: The classifieds are to be used by members selling items and not services. Business ads are accepted provided you place them in the proper area located HERE. The base price for business ads only is $10.00 for each 90 day period. All other ads are free. Click HERE for Advertising Rates if you would like to buy a Banner ad.

Global Forum Rules:

  1. Staff decisions are final. Ultimately, staff has complete discretion over what is and is not acceptable on the site.
  2. Public discussions of staff decisions are not permitted on the site. If you have any concerns or queries relating to a staff decision, please take it up in private with a member of the site administration team.
  3. All members must be treated in a respectful and adult manner. All members should respect and adhere to the promotion of harmony within the community. Do not attempt to disrupt the community in any way.
  4. Stay with the thread topic. In all forum environments it's common courtesy to stay on topic of the thread you are replying to. If your post is not on topic it may be moved or deleted at the discretion of the staff.
  5. NO Hijacking of another members thread. Changing the subject of a thread is considered hijacking it, if you have a topic to discuss please start your own thread. It's easily done by clicking this button in any forum your topic may apply to.
  6. No "Flaming". Please do not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest.
  7. No "Trolling". Please do not post any topic that disrupts the peace and harmony of this board. Don't create meaningless threads with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. This includes messages in profiles and signatures.
  8. No "Spamming". Please do not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site with the same message. You will not post for the sake of increasing your post count.
  9. No "Bumping" (Your threads/posts): Please do not repeatedly bump your threads to try and get attention. Most members of the site are not online 24 hours a day and so will not see your post the instant it is made. Do not bump a thread within 24 hours, and not more than twice a week.
  10. No Offensive Material Please do not post messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, racist, sexist, discriminatory, and/or otherwise violate of any local or international laws. This includes links in your signature, profile, posted images, photos and avatars. Staff will ultimately decide if something is appropriate or not.
