If you need to post something that could be of a questionable moral content (not all morals are created equal) then please mark NWS (not work safe).

i) While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'ooh look, yet another bulletin board' posts or threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards.

o) Do not post anything that will disrupt the positive harmony of the Forum

Posting in the Club Zone
This section is only available to subscribing members of Club Scuderia, but all the same general forum rules apply. Inevitably it will be slightly more loose in the way it is controlled given that most member are personally known to one or more other members, but we will respond to reported posts, and discuss behaviour with the offenders and the offended.
Avatars & Profile Pictures If you are using an avatar or profile picture, please do not use an image or text that could cause offence. Animated Avatars are also not allowed as they distract from the main content of a post. The Cub Scuderia support team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not constitute an inappropriate avatar or profile picture.

Only Subscribed members may post items for sale / wanted on Club Scuderia. These are to be in the Marketplace section.

There is a marketplace available. This is only for advertising single items for sale, not for users wishing to sell batches of merchandise or services.
Meetings Whilst Club Scuderia is not responsible for any meetings, events or trips that are arranged by its members, the following rules will apply to any events that are organised or promoted on the forum.

It is the aim of the Committee to ensure that all events are open to all subscribed members, unless said member is excluded on the grounds of H&S, is currently banned, or the maximum number of attendees has been reached.

Following further discussion , in events where a general list is posted on CS calling for drivers, Volunteers etc, to participate in an event (whether financially support by CS or not) , it is a requirement that the selection criteria is agreed with the committee in advance and posted on CS , thus ensuring all members are kept fully informed. This should allow event organisers discretion to administer their lists and members get to see what they need to do to attend in advance.

If the organiser(s) feel they need to exclude anybody the matter should be referred to the Committee.

All persons are asked to behave themselves on these occasions and to take reasonable precautions

Use of Club Scuderia logo & club name guidelines

The use of the Club Scuderia name and logo is prohibited without the express written approval of the committee in advance.
