Forum Rules

The Subaru International Drivers Club (SIDC) are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message, nor can we be held responsible for taking the advice posted in any message.

For the benefit of all members and to protect the SIDC from abuse of the club forums, with immediate effect all sections excluding 'Introduce Yourself', 'Track Days and National Events' and 'Sales & Wanted' will be accessible only by fully paid up members of The SIDC. This positive decision will ultimately stop the endless attempts by some users to bring the club into disrepute. Registered users and guests will be able to see all sections but not the content with the exception of those mentioned above: Introduce Yourself, Track Days & National Events will be full start topic, read & reply, Sales & Wanted will be full read, NOT reply.

The messages on these Forums express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the SIDC. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.

Spamming - Definition:
"The act of obnoxiously doing something repeatedly for attention or in order to disturb others".
Posting duplicate messages in multiple sections of the forum is classed as spamming and will not be tolerated.

Everyone loves a joke but if it's one between mates that offends others then these should be kept off the Forums. If a member of staff deem it unsuitable posting or behavior then appropriate action will be taken.

Trolling - Definition:
"One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument".
Those who actively troll the forums will receive warnings advising them that their behavior will not be tolerated, any further trolling will result in a ban.

Harassment - Definition:
"to bother continually; pester; persecute, disturb persistently, trouble, or confuse by continual persistent attacks, questions, torment”
Harassment of members of staff and club members is not accepted. Warnings will be imposed in the event of unnecessary persistent contact from users.
