The basic ground rules for discussions on Wheels In Motion (WIM) are simple - be polite, use common sense, don't break the law and don't post any message that even hints at advertising. We don't intend to censor messages based on the opinions expressed within them, but we will enforce the policies outlined both here and on the Forum. The WIM moderation team reserves the right to remove, modify or move posts at it discretion and without explanation. If you have any questions, please ask the Administrator.
Advertising and Soliciting
We enforce a very strict policy regarding solicitation of our membership by forum participants except in those forum sections where advertising is expressly permitted.
Participants may not use the forum to publish or discuss any information regarding their products or services, or any product or services they are, or have been, associated with, unless pre-arranged with WIM Staff.
Participants may not use the forum for commercial or financial gain unless authorised as an official trusted centre by WIM.
Participants may not use the forum to direct others to any pages at their own commercial website (or any website they may have an interest in) including informational pages. commission hyperlinks or referral hyperlinks. General linking from a member's profile is allowed. The WIM Staff reserves the right to alter any profile it sees unfit for display on WIM, without warning.
Participants may not use the forum to direct or solicit others to contact them regarding their product or services, unless you are listed in the trusted centre, or have prior approval from WIM Staff.
Participants who are associated with a Main Dealer may not use the main forums to direct others to the advertising forums.
Participants may not use discussions to recommend or praise other product or services, or any company, unless they have directly used the product before. This includes companies recommending other companies.
Participants may not solicit the membership for feedback or suggestions on their product or services.
Participants may not use a "signature" with plan descriptions or any pricing information at the end of forum messages.
Signatures must be kept to a maximum of 6 (six) lines, and may only contain 1 (one) image. Signatures may be edited or deleted without notice by a WIM Staff member.
Signature Images must NOT exceed 300 x 100 pixels and MUST be static, no animation is allowed or your signature WILL be REMOVED and a PM sent to you explaining why.
Participants may not use the forum to solicit users for any project or purpose external to the forum; public, private, or commercial.
Forum Conduct and Message Content
We take the "be polite" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate ANY rudeness or swearing (including modifying words to escape our profanity filter). Any member who is intentionally unpleasant or disruptive will receive one warning, and will be permanently banned from WIM after a second offence.
Swearing, either explicitly, or by using words to deceive our profanity filter will be edited by a moderator you may receive a warning marker against your name
Repeated swearing (again either explicitly or by trying to deceive our profanity filter) will be edited or deleted without warning or PM and may lead to the member being banned from using the forum and / or banned from WIM.
In addition. members must not post images or use avatars that may cause offence to others. If any member finds an image or an avatar offensive, they should complain by PM to a WIM Staff member (listed below). The WIM Staff members will request that the image or avatar is removed, or may decide to remove it him/herself.
