Please ensure that you read all the rules prior to starting a thread, or making a post. The rules must be followed by each member with no exceptions. Once you register with Maxbimmer forums, you agree to abide by these rules. The purpose of the rules are to keep the forums respectful, courteous, and beneficial to others who read the boards. If you have any questions, or concerns, please email us, and we will gladly help answer any of your questions or concerns.

 

      Be Respectful.
The purpose of the forum is to provide an area for exchanging ideas, gathering opinions, acquiring an answer to a question that you may have, etc.  On occasion, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions, thoughts, or personal preferences.  Be courteous when disagreeing with others. There are many ways to disagree without insulting others.

 

     Personal attacks are prohibited.
Personal attacks are comments that personally berate or insult another person. Posts of this nature are not beneficial to the community, nor will they be tolerated. If you have something to say to one or more members that you think may cause controversy, please contact them via Private Message (PM) and remember to be respectful.

 Site Support/Respect.
            If you are here using this site, please show support, and positivity. Bashing or undermining the site is not welcome, and user may result in a permanent ban.

          Trolling Is prohibited.
 Trolling is the word used to describe a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting the         members of the forum community, or to stir the pot so to speak. Posts of this nature are disruptive and do not convey a   friendly attitude.

            No posting of personal information.
            Please respect the privacy of others and do not give out information such as phone numbers and addresses.

      Addressing one specific member.
Please use Private Messaging (PM) when asking a specific question, or making a comment that is irrelevant to the topic of a thread or directed to only one person. Do not clutter threads with irrelevancy, and stay on topic! This makes the board become organized, user-friendly, and informative.

     Warnings and bans are not to be discussed on the forum.
Such matters shall remain private between staff and the user. Questions or comments concerning warnings and bans will be conveyed through e-mail or private messaging. Likewise, discussions regarding moderator actions are not permitted on the forum. If you have any questions regarding a post, thread, or may have a concern, please contact us via our contact page or contact any of our staff members.

     Immediate banning from the forum can result from any of the following.
The posting of pornography; discriminatory remarks which may be sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; excessive obscene or vulgar language; posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned.

       Spamming is prohibited.
Spam is considered to be repetitive posting of the same topic or text or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users or is used as a form of advertising. Please do not post in threads what you may think is spam. Instead, please report the thread and/or contact a staff member with the link to the spam.

   Questions, Concerns, or Comments?
If you may have any questions, concerns, or comments related to the site, please post them in the appropriate comments section of the forum or email them to us. Please DO NOT post them in other sections or they will either be missed or removed.

   Redundant threads will be removed.
As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been posted. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Please use your judgment to either bump an old thread, or start a new one. If the thread is more than a year old, please start a new one.

  All posts must be posted in their appropriate sections.
Posts and threads are to be posted in the appropriate sections. This helps with organization of the forums, as well as it helps keep the search database organized as well.

   Advertisements.
Advertising posts and promoting a business of any kind is prohibited unless posted by our site supporting vendors. If you would like to obtain advertising information, and are interested in advertising on Maxbimmer, please contact us at via our contact page.

  Language and profanity.
Please refrain from using profanity. Profanity decreases the credibility of the thread, and decreases the credibility of your post. We did not censor the words as censoring them may cause some software additions to function incorrectly. If you really feel the need to use profanity, please use partial masking with an asterisk (*) to cover letters in the word. 

  Carfax.
Please refrain from asking for someone else to look up a vin# for you on carfax. Carfax is a paid service, so please visit them. We ask to keep all carfax requisitions off the forums.

  Reserve the right.
Maxbimmer reserves the right to keep, hold, or remove any posts or threads when need be. Members are not permitted to request removal of any threads or posts, unless any of the above rules are broken. We will use our best judgement when removing a post or thread. Maxbimmer also reserves the right to remove or ban any account at any given time if one does not abide by the rules. Maxbimmer is not held responsible and shall not be held accountable for anyone’s actions on the site.  As a public message board, there are many personal opinions, and experiences that one may not agree with, but one also has a right to share.
