Indyacars Forum is a community of auto enthusiasts, we welcome all automotive fans and encourage an open-minded and helpful approach to being a member. Please keep in mind: We are all here to share our knowledge and have fun! Do not forget that!

Our rules are simple, but you need to read and understand them before you start posting.

1. The "be a nice member" stuff:
Indyacars Forum is a community and you will behave in a manner that is helpful and kind to other members. Be nice to new members, not everyone is familiar with how a forum works and may need your assistance in guiding them. Be respectful of each other. Our forum is a global community, you will meet people with differing opinions and ideas to your own. You are welcome to debate such things, but you must do so without attacking the person. If you are about to post something that is flaming, attacking, or disrespectful of another member - stop. Take a deep breath and go do something else for a couple of minutes. All fans of any automotive brand and model are welcome here. We are here to share, learn and participate in the community. The Moderators are here to help, if you have any problems and need to contact a moderator please use the report post button.

2. The "what happens when you’re not nice" stuff:
By joining Indyacars Forum you agree to meet our expectations of membership and be nice. If you are not, if you break any of the rules, or if you are not deemed suitable for membership you will be contacted by the Moderators. Any contact with the moderators is private and any communications can not be posted on the forums. If you are banned for a limited period of time, use that time to consider your behavior and how you may improve. If you are banned permanently there is no return. Attempts to rejoin will only result in you being banned again, and repeated attempts will force us to contact your ISP. If you are having a bad day, feeling angry or upset, or in a mood that may cause you to behave inappropriately on the forums, log out and go do something else. Moderators will, as seen fit, remove any objectionable material, edit or delete posts and threads etc.

3. Use of Signatures:
Your signature should reflect who you are, but it can not include anything offensive or objectionable. It may contain links to sites you own, including your own automotive business, but it can be a link only. You are not allowed to use your signature for advertising. e.g. “Go here to buy xxxxxxx.” We do not allow affiliate links, advertising, links to other forums, or to anything offensive or objectionable including porn. Such links will be removed and you may be banned.

4. What happens now?
Be nice to other members. Respect everyone. Read the stickies at the top of each forum you enter, many contain rules and guidelines specific to each sub forum. Remember you can use the report post button to report spam, bad behavior of if you just need an online hug. The most important thing: We are all here to share our knowledge and have fun! Do not forget that!

5. Advertising, Spam etc:
Any spam will be deleted immediately and the member banned. Spam is any unsolicited advertising of products or services. If you wish to advertise on Indyacars forum, please visit the following page "http://indyacars.com/advertise/" and submit your proposal.

6. The legal stuff:
Upon the submission of each post on Indyacars Forum you give Indyacars Forum the permission to reproduce any part of your post in any form, for any purpose, and at any time. Indyacars Forum is not responsible for copyright material posted by its members, but will take all practical steps to remove such content upon being informed of any infringement. You must be at least 14 to join Indyacars Forum and participate in our community. You agree not to violate the rights of others. You will not impersonate any person or entity, falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity. You will not register with multiple identities. Linking or giving information about any site that distributes illegal software, ROMs, media, or emulators, seeking help to circumvent any copyright laws, admitting to possessing and/or distributing illegal copyrighted material, or encouraging software or media piracy is grounds for an immediate ban.

7. Introduction stuff:
We have a policy where a member is given a week time to introduce himself or herself on the member introduction section, failing which your account will be considered as spam and will be compromised. So please introduce yourself in the member introduction section to avoid further action by moderators.

The moderators and administrators have the final say on membership. I have read, and agree to abide by the Indyacars Forum.
