Rules and Regs to consider

Postby MrChrome » Thu Dec 08, 2011 4:19 pm

Here they are:

What do we think?

Mazda Mender Forum Rules – last updated 5th December 2011


“The Mazda Mender Forum, Forum, We, we, us, Us” are the owners, administrators and/or, the moderators of the Mazda Mender forum.

“You, your, Your, you, member, members” are the members of this forum.


Changes and amendments to these rules and regulations can be made at any time. You, as a member of this forum, are deemed to be aware of any such changes as soon as the changes are made.

This forum has been created and is provided for the benefit of it’s members. The forum is administered and moderated by a number of MX5 and Eunos Roadster enthusiasts.

This forum is provided free. It is kindly sponsored by Autolink MX5 – http://www.autolinkmx5.com.

By joining, or registering with this forum you are agreeing to abide by the Rules and Regulations detailed here, any additional rules detailed on any forum categories, the relevant law(s) for your country AND the Law of England and agree to be bound by them and the following:

DISCLAIMER – applies to ALL of this forum

Any work you do to your car is entirely your own responsibility. If you are in any doubt, you should check any advice given with a suitably qualified person. The Mazda Mender forum and it’s members accept no responsibility for any damage caused to your person, your property or any third party as a result of you following or not following any advice offered in any Forum post.


Anyone can register as a member of this forum. You don’t need to own, drive or be involved in MX5s or Eunos Roadsters.

There is no charge for membership.

Registering with multiple accounts is strictly forbidden.

You must register with a valid email address. This email address will be the only way that the Forum can make contact with you.

We reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully and persistently violates the forum rules. Our decision is final. Appeals may be held at the sole discretion of The Forum. This process is detailed below.

While these rules will cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we may take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.


The primary function of The Forum is to allow MX-5/Eunos Roadster/Mazda Miata owners/“would be” owners and anyone with an interest in those cars to freely chat about all things related to the car. The exchange of information, guidance, “expert” opinion and input is encouraged, but members can and will disagree.

Remember don't be offensive or rude if you disagree or are disagreed with. If you choose to explain your argument, that is entirely at your discretion. This explanation should be put forward in a mature manner. Think before you write or type, read the post again just in case you’ve not understood what the other member is trying to say.


Any post may be removed, deleted, edited or modified by The Forum and it’s administrators or moderators.


Every post made to the forum is subject to moderation as required. We may delete, move or edit any post at our sole discretion.

Try to keep ALL posts on topic and in the relevant section.

Posts should be made with the consideration that members of any age may read them AND they will be searchable on the world wide web.

There is no obligation on The Forum, it’s moderators or administrators to notify you if your post has been edited/deleted/moved.

If you have a grievance in respect of any of the moderation on The Forum please check the procedure below.


If you are cross, go and post in the Rant part of The Forum!!!

Multiple posts with the same content in different forum sections is not allowed. The posts in all but the most relevant section will be removed by the moderators.

The Forum may send warnings in relation to any of these matters. You will receive these by Private Message and they are deemed to be served on you when they are sent.

The administrators reserve the right to view and, in extreme circumstances, discuss any PMs. We can only do this directly from the database where the forum is stored.
