Forum Rules

If you are a business wishing to promote your products or services, please contact us for permission before posting on the forums or contacting members. Thank you.

Rules
Membership with RenaultForums is currently free. However, we still insist that our members abide by the rules of the forum. Please carefully read these statements, as ignorance of the rules is no defence if you break them. You can find a link to these rules in the left hand menu should you wish to refer to them after your registration is complete
You should consider before registering with RenaultForums that this is an independent community and has absolutely no affiliation with Renault whatsoever
1. Content
Although the administrators of this web site will attempt to remove as much questionable material as possible, it is simply impossible for us to read every message. All messages express the views of the member who wrote them, and neither the owner of RenaultForums, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (the developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message
RenaultForums will review any questionable content when this is brought to our attention. You can do this very easily by clicking this icon:

To help us to avoid the need to "police" the forums, please do not post any messages that are:
a) Obscene or pornographic
b) Hateful
c) Threatening
d) Unlawful (including the posting of software cracks and/or serial numbers)
You should also remember that RenaultForums does not under any circumstances allow the reproduction of copyrighted material. This includes, but is not restricted to:
a) PDF documents such as Dialogys files
b) Screen prints from commercial software
c) Information from copyrighted pages on other web sites
d) Pirated software
e) Scans of printed documents
f) etc. etc.
Please do not circulate copyrighted material anywhere on RenaultForums. This includes public areas of the forum and private messages (PMs)
We can not stress highly enough how important it is that this rule is not broken
Radio, infotainment systems and immobilisers have security codes to limit the risk of theft, therefore, whilst it is perfectly reasonable to ask how to input the code, it is not reasonable to ask or provide details of where to obtain that code - apart from a Renault dealership, or any paperwork they have provided. This is so the forum doesn't compromise the integrity of this security feature.
We will also not allow the sale of, or discussions about, devices & techniques aimed at bypassing immobilisers or other security mechanisms
In reference to point c) above it is acceptable to quote material from other web sites but please acknowledge the source of the information and provide a link to the original where you think that this is appropriate
The owners of RenaultForums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason. We also reserve the right to maintain the content of your messages should you choose to cancel your account. This allows us to maintain the integrity of the threads
2. Censorship
This forum is aimed at a mature audience. We therefore have a relaxed censorship policy. A swear-filter is in place but it is possible that you will encounter swearing, rude jokes and other adult material
In order to help you to avoid adult content, certain forums such as the "General Chat" and "Jokes and Funny Stuff" sections have a warning
If you do wish to post adult material please choose the following symbol when creating your thread:

You might also consider adding the widely recognised NSFW (Not Safe for Work) tag to your thread title
We have a strict policy regarding naming and shaming of any company or service provider etc. You are encouraged to report on good service but you may find your posts edited or removed if they contain specific allegations against named individuals or businesses. Other sites, such as http://www.BView.co.uk, have a much more relaxed approach to naming & shaming. If you wish to vent your spleen, we would prefer it if you would use an alternative site
3. Consequential loss
RenaultForums is not responsible for any advice given by our members, either discussed or implied. Answers to questions are offered as information only and no responsibility is accepted by RenaultForums or the site administrators and moderators for any conceivable consequence might be related to any advice given
Further more, our members offer their opinions in order to try to assist other members. It is essential that you take the necessary steps to confirm that the opinion is correct
4. Advertising
Renaultforums puts the best interest of its members first, and with that in mind, only officially sanctioned advertising will be permitted. By all means, recommend a business you have personally used, but touting a business or website you are connected with (without prior permission), will be considered spamming, and dealt with the same method - a permanent ban.
5. The law
The issue of ownership of the content of a web site is a grey area in UK law. For this reason it is essential that you read rules 1 to 3 carefully
The owners of RenaultForums will not enter into any debate regarding freedom of speech, censorship or any aspect of the law. The posts made by our members could be considered the opinion of the site owners and as such we prefer to be cautious about such matters
NB. Any threat of legal action will result in the site closing so it is in our memberís best interests to work towards avoiding any such eventuality
6. Posting
a) Flaming
Flaming is a natural community response to stupid remarks, harassment, deception, insults etc. This forum is aimed at an adult audience and we much prefer that you fight your own battles
With this in mind do not be surprised if reports of flaming are ignored. However, if we consider flaming to be over the top we will take action
b) Dishonesty
We will not tolerate dishonesty. Nobody likes to deal with deception and lying in the real world and the same can be said of online communities. For this reason the following is unacceptable:
i) Registration under multiple accounts: violating this rule will result in a ban - the duration and extent of which is at our discretion
ii) Lying
iii) Editing posts to make it appear that you said something different to support an argument
c) Trolling and spamming
Trolling and spamming will not be tolerated and you should expect your threads to be removed if it is clear that they have been created for the purpose of stirring up trouble or, in the case of spamming, posted with no obvious intent
d) Controversy
We do not expect our members to agree on everything. You should not, therefore, expect the administrators or moderators to step in just because someoneís opinion is unpopular
e) Rudeness
It is more than possible that in an argument someone will be rude to you. This is an inevitable fact of life Ė get over it
However, we will not tolerate vendettas and will deal with anyone waging an online war with another member simply because they do not like them or agree with them
Persistent humiliation of another member, evidence of vendettas and unnecessary hostility will be dealt with on a case by case basis
7. Profiles
We reserve the right to edit your username, avatar, custom title and signature etc. should we consider that they are inappropriate
If you have posted a message on RenaultForums, we are unable to delete your account. This is to ensure that the stream of any conversations that you have started or participated in is not lost
8. Enforcement
a) If you feel that a memberís behaviour is not appropriate please click the following icon next to the post in question:

This will bring the post to the attention of the administration team
b) Moderators have been chosen for a reason. Do not tell them how to do their job
c) Administrators and moderators have a right to their opinion. Complaints about administration team members based on a difference of opinion will be treated with contempt. However, administration team members are not immune from flaming BUT this only extends to any expression of their opinion in a thread, and not in relation to their job as an administration or moderator
d) Any accusations of abuse of power by the administration staff will be ignored. Decisions are generally made collectively and you should therefore presume that the entire administration staff is in agreement
e) We donít operate on precedence. We will decide what disciplinary action is required on a case by case basis
f) Under no circumstances should you change or remove an edit made by an administrator or moderator. The edit is there as an example to others and if we find that you have changed it additional punishment will be forthcoming
g) Failure to comply with the instruction or wishes of a member of the admin staff will result in suitable disciplinary measures being taken against you
9. The rules
The rules should be used to determine what behaviour is acceptable. Omissions and errors in the rules should not be used as an excuse to justify inappropriate behaviour or as a means to justify your rights or settle an argument
The rules are subject to change at any time. If you point out an omission in the rules in an attempt to justify yourself, the rules will be amended and disciplinary action will be taken regardless of the omission
10. User Names
Without prior consent under no circumstances will we allow members to use, any user name which reflects, or is associated to any type of business, of any nature. Anyone disregarding this rule can expect punitive action up to and including a permanent ban.
11. To close
a) Your participation in the RenaultForums community is appreciated. However, you being here in the first place is a privilege, not a right
b) The rules have been agreed upon by all members of the administration team
Rules last revised 14th January 2009 (marked in red)
Usage guidelines
In addition to our Rules you may wish to consider the following guidelines:
1. Posting
Please read a few posts and familiarise yourself with how the forum works. Make sure your thread includes a clear description in the title and if you require technical help remember to provide as much information as possible. In order that the information is presented to our members in every thread you create or reply to, you can add information about the car that you drive in the user control panel
2. Off topic posting
Not only is RenaultForums a rich resource of Renault and automotive content, itís a thriving community of like-minded people. You will therefore find posts on all sorts of subjects including off-topic posting. All we ask is that you use the correct forum for your posts if they are not automotive. Off-topic posting should be restricted to the "Miscellaneous" forum
3. Repetition
You may find that your question has already been answered. Before asking your question make sure that you use the forums search facility. You should also look at the FAQ section and check for any sticky posts at the top of the forum
4. Keep it private!
You should not add personal information to the forum. This includes, but is not restricted to:
a) Your email address
b) Address
c) Phone number
We do ask you for your email address during the registration process, but it is kept private
5. Duplication
Please do not post the same question in different forums on the site. This is a huge problem and is very frustrating for people who may be trying to help you. Persistent duplication of posts may be considered to be spamming and will be dealt with accordingly
6. Manners
This may be a virtual community, but you are expected to remember your manners. When asking for help, a please and thank you would not go amiss
