    Apex Racing UK Forum Rules

    Use common sense.

    Think about what you post.


    Self-Promotion is Spam
    All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed for further investigation. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests, including the promotion of another racing team or any site one is affiliated with, fits under this subject.

    While you are allowed to promote your web site(s) in your signature, you are not permitted to post links to sites you run or are in any way affiliated with in your posts. In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.

    Language and Trolling
    Our community is a friendly one. Language should be kept to an appropriate level. Whilst everyone curses from time to time, aiming these at others is not the best idea. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.

    Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.

    Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to the team discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.

    Personal Attacks
    In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
    Moderators and Administrators Have the Final Word

    If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards.The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.

    Cross-Posting
    If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.

    Double Posting
    Double posting is lazy and unnecessary. There is an edit function - please use it. Repeated violators who continue to do so after being told will receive infraction points.

    Signature Rules
    A typical signature contains the poster's name, Gamertag, website, and a favourite quote or saying. Images are limited in size and shouldn't contain gifs. Excessive font size are not allowed. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.

    Multiple Accounts Per Individual Are Not Permitted
    If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.

    Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact us. Above all, remember to have fun!
