Users of MBClub.co.uk

when posting 

  1. must not submit libellous, insulting, antagonistic, racist, aggressive or otherwise abusive Content about any individual or company.
  2. must not submit swear words in such a way as to circumvent the MBClub UK built-in profanity filter system.
  3. must not submit any images or text which are pornographic or violent or otherwise inappropriate.
  4. must not promote websites which contain inappropriate material such as pornography
  5. must not submit promotional information about any illegal activities (such as piracy). We will not permit people to use the forums to distribute files/software which are pirated or aid in the production of pirated material.
  6. must not submit any spam. People posting spam will be instantly and permanently banned, their posts will be deleted and their details will be submitted to the StopForumSpam service so that they will then not be able to use those details to re-register with either MBClub UK or the many any other communities which use that service.
  7. must not create their new threads in more than one forum. (Doing so is called cross-posting). You should pick the single most appropriate forum for your message. Duplicate posts will be deleted.
  8. must not question the judgments or actions of forum moderators. They are far too busy to enter into discussions or arguments. Please use the contact us link towards the bottom of the forum where members may escalate objections to specific moderating decisions.
  9. must obey the classifieds guidelines found here
  10. members who own, operate, represent or who are affiliated with a commercial enterprise or competing website must not submit messages which reference that organisation in any way unless they are authorised advertisers on MBClub UK. This includes promotion of and providing support for that organisation. More details about this rule are given below.

When creating an account

  1. must not have avatars or signatures which contain the branding, names, details or contact information for any commercial enterprise which they own, represent or are affiliated with, or any website competing with MBClub UK unless they are an advertiser on MBClub UK and are posting in a professional capacity.
  2. must not have an inappropriate login name. We do not permit a login name which breaks any of the rules or which references a business, service or product unless the account belongs to an advertiser on MBClub UK.
  3. must not register more than once unless they advertise on MBClub UK. Doing so may get one or both registrations and all the posts deleted.
  4. must not re-register once banned. A ban from MBClub UK means you are no longer welcome to use our website. Re-registering will lead to a permanent ban of the new account and a complaint to your ISP.
  5. We find that the vast majority of forum members have no problem with the above rules. However, if any of them are broken, then moderators will take appropriate action to ensure the forums remain a pleasant place to visit.

Rule 10

Members who own, operate, represent or who are affiliated with a commercial enterprise or competing website may not submit messages which reference that organisation in any way unless they are advertisers on MBClub UK. This includes promotion of and providing support for that organisation.

It may be tempting to some individuals representing companies to covertly invite business by pretending to be, for example, a 'satisfied customer'. This is very unwise, since if such dishonesty is discovered (either by members or moderators), and publicly exposed (as it often is), it could embarrass or even tarnish the reputation of the company in question.
