You will likely have noticed we have migrated to new forum software, please see the following post about the upgrade: Forum Software Migration
Further to this, I have recently changed the style to see if it suits the feel of the forum better and is slightly better on the eyes for people, please feel free to advise me of anything that bothers you, or if this one is better.

Posting Guidelines & EtiquetteMuch of the following is just common sense and regular polite netiquette, please use your head and don't get into flame wars or the like.
- Please keep all material PG rated or better (no naked women, obscene images or language) as some people read the forum at work and everyone has different views on what is and what is not appropriate. This includes signatures. Posts which contain non PG content MUST have this indicated obviously in the post title, and should only appear in the Non Z Related (NZR) forum. Anything R or X rated will not be tolerated, and in the very least will be deleted. Members may be disciplined via the Infraction system, see below.
Youtube Tagging rules (linking to Youtube videos) are to follow the same principals as the rules for image posting. Penalties will also be the same for abuse of the feature, and the feature may be disabled if it is abused.
- No insults to individuals or groups (e.g. police, workshops, etc), keep criticism constructive rather than abusive.
- Please do not degenerate into flame wars or arguments that are not constructive. If an argument ensues simply ignore it, replying only continues it further.
- Please do not use the forum (a public place) for arguments or issues which are better left private.
- The Z Related (Technical) section is for 300ZX technical discussion only. Threads in Z Related (Technical) should only be started with technical questions or technical statements about the 300ZX General conversation and non technical threads will not be allowed in this section and will be moved to the new Z Related (Non Technical) section, or Non Zed related. Topics within Z related (Technical) will be monitored, and posts that do not contribute to the topic will be removed.
- The Z Related (Non Technical) section is for all other discussion about the 300ZX that is not technical in nature, eg styling, colour, etc. Note it still must relate directly to the 300ZX. No general off topic discussion is allowed in this section.
- The NZR (Non Z Related forum) is for discussion non Z issues and subjects, it is not for discussion of political or religious issues which will inevitably lead to flame wars even if the original post is innocent. Quite frankly there are many other places if you want to discuss such issues and the purpose of this particular forum is not for that. The NZR forum is provided for this community to have light hearted off topic chat / discussion.
You are not allowed to provide links to web pages that contain pornography or other similarly or distasteful topics. Remember that above all, this is a community, and we have a high standard to uphold compared to other car forums on the Internet.
If you must indulge yourselves in areas that some people will find offensive, save that for email, IM or PM.
- Images should be resized to no larger than 800x600 with appropriate jpeg compression. Signatures should be no bigger than 60kb
- Images posted in threads should NOT be quoted in general replies except when necessary, i.e: quoting of a specific picture from multiple choices to clarify a point is acceptable.
With 5 forum moderators and the Report Bad Post function a post disregarding any of these guidelines will probably be deleted pretty quickly and will not do you any favours in terms of other member's opinions of you. Frequent disregard of these guidelines will incur infractions and possibly lead to you being banned from the site.... this is a great forum with great people and we intend to keep it this way.
Members that have been banned may not create additional accounts to circumvent the ban it will only extend the original ban time.
Member a/c's> Members may have one registered account (or presence) on the Forum. The nickname by which you are known forms this account. > Choose your nickname wisely. Name changes will not be allowed for frivolous reasons. Any member wanting to request a name change must contact moderator MagicMike. > Duplicate accounts are NOT permitted. In a family situation it is quite acceptable for a husband/wife/son/daughter to each have an individual account, provided that each account is used exclusively by the bone fide user. > Use of another persons account OR creation of a personal (duplicate) account may see those accounts disabled, merged or deleted altogether.
Custom User TitlesMembers may choose a Custom User Title in User CP/Edit Profile. The title selected must conform to the following guidelines or this privilege may be withdrawn without notice or recourse:
1. Keep it clean - no swear words or reference to race/religion etc. 2. Keep it brief - not to run over one line 3. Be unique - do not use existing Member nicknames
SignaturesMembers may create a personal signature (sig) for their profile assuming the following conditions:
Sig must not contravene any of the regular guidelines for posting. No advertising, via LINKS or otherwise, within the sig, EXCEPT as below: >>A personal ad by a Member offering zed-related goods or services may be permitted provided any graphic, text, or LINK is wholly contained within the 750pixel x 200pixel sig block. 3rd party ads and LINKs to businesses are not permitted in order to maintain a non-commercial status. >>Alternately, one (1) LINK to a Member's Garage or personal website is also acceptable.
Sig's in contravention of guidelines may be DELETED or EDITED by Moderator(s).
