1) Swedespeed.com Forum Rules...

Swedespeed.com Forum Rules
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
In an effort to improve the signal to noise ratio on our forums we ask that you abide buy these guidelines when participating. With many registered members from all over the world we have reached a point where tremendous diversity, age, education, location and more are all factors to consider when participating in our forums. We want to promote a clean, healthy, respectful atmosphere where people are not afraid to ask questions, participate in this community and generally have a good time discussing the things we love most - cars.

With that in mind, here are the rules:
THE BIG RULES: Violation of these rules is grounds for IMMEDIATE banning of your account.

No profanity in subject lines or signatures.

No spamming or commercial solicitation of any kind. Any such messages will be removed at the discretion of either a forum moderator or administrator.

No flaming of other members to incite or perpetuate a conflict or argument. ANY personal attacks or name calling will get you banned.

No bombing forums or threads with pointless posts.

No linking or posting of pornographic or objectionable material.

Do not impersonate other individuals or falsely represent yourself.

Do not discuss, suggest, engage, or encourage any illegal activity on the forums. Linking to locations that deal with any such activity are also forbidden.

Posting under secondary usernames or alias user names other than your main account for the purpose of arguing, degrading or belittling other readers is grounds for having your posting privileges revoked.

You must have a valid e-mail account in your profile so you can be reached by a forum moderator or administrator.
These are here to help you (and others) have an enjoyable experience here.

Respect both forum moderators and administrators. It is a thankless job that they do, and cleaning up other people's messes is never fun.

No SHOUTING. Don't use all caps when posting. It is difficult to read and annoying.

Try to post to the forum that is most appropriate for the topic being presented.

No cross-posting. (see spamming above)

Refrain from using profanity or cr3ative spell1ng to get around the censor filters.

Respect the privacy of other members and individuals. Do not post personal information about them (i.e. addresses, phone numbers, passwords, etc.)

No buying, selling, or trading anywhere outside of the Classified Forum.

Observe all copyright laws when posting copyrighted material.

Do not post messages that violate Federal, State, or Local laws which include, but are not limited to, anything that violates a copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or is bound by NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

Moderators and administrators frequently review forum messages for those that are in violation of Swedespeed rules. Any messages found to be in violation may be deleted without warning or explanation. Swedespeed also reserves the right to ban any user, at any time, and for any reason.

There are going to be topics and discussions that will have heated debates. Please think before you post and re-read what you type before you post it. Keep your comments limited to the debate at hand and not make this a personal issue between you and another reader. There is tremendous diversity in age, race, gender, language, location (worldwide) and more here and there will be a lot of varying opinions on different subjects. We're all human beings and we we're all drawn to this site because we have a common bond as Volvo and car enthusiasts.

Considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for Swedespeed to review all messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that Swedespeed does not actively monitor the contents of posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. Swedespeed does not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and is not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Swedespeed or any entity associated with Swedespeed. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. Swedespeed has the ability to remove objectionable messages and will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if determined that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this Discussion Forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by Swedespeed.

Although this Discussion Forum does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at Swedespeed reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Swedespeed, vBulletin (the makers of the bulletin board software), and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).
We at this discussion forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

A valid email address is required for registration so that your password can be sent to you personally. This has been done to prevent and safeguard the Swedespeed Forums from random attacks and people looking to cause problems and spam these forums. Swedespeed does *NOT* sell or distribute your email address to any third parties. The option to have your email address visible in your posts on these forums is controlled and determined by settings in your profile which you control. If you feel uncomfortable submitting your email address, you can go to a number of free email services on the Internet to get a second email address for the purposes of registering on bulletin boards like this one. For more information on our Privacy Policy, please click on the "about us" button at the top of the page.

Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate on these discussion forums.

2) Group Buy Policy...

Swedespeed.com Group Buy Policy
1. Please crosspost all Group Buys (GBs) in the related Classified(s) section so that there is one set place in the forums where all current GBs can be found.
2. Any registered user can organize a Group Buy.
3. Regular forum members can post a link to a Group Buy in their signature file and may mention Group Buys in existing threads that are on that topic.
4. When posting a Group Buy, please use this set form to make them more easily found in the Swedespeed forums. This should include, in this order, the label “GB”, Product Name, Application, Company, Additional Info
ex. GB – European Headlights, 240 , IPD


Group Buy FAQ
Q: I want to organize a Group Buy, can I do so?
A: No, you will need to contact the advertiser who has the product you’d like to see in a group buy, and ask them to post the Group Buy.


Q: What if the product I want to do a Group Buy for is not sold by an eligible company?
A: Our advertisers are broad enough and numerous enough that they cover virtually all parts. If not, many are willing to help out by distributing and processing the parts in question. If the part you want is unique to a company that does not advertise with us, you may want to suggest to that company that they consider doing so.


Q: Why were these rules implemented?
A: These rules were implemented for your protection as buyers and also to help support those companies that choose to support our community. By having companies register with us, the chance of our users getting scammed is much less as those companies or entities doing this business then have something to lose. The implementation of proper user titles makes moderating the forums much easier. Forum Sponsors and Banner Advertisers may post sales in all forums.



Q: What if, even with the new rules, I get scammed in a Group Buy?
A: If a situation arises where there is a problem regarding payment without delivery on product, any user should contact an administrator immediately if they wish action to be taken. Our staff will investigate, and if the situation warrants, that entity will be removed from having Group Buy privileges. While this does not assure money will be returned or the part will be shipped, a key benefit is that it will assure that fellow users are not scammed thanks to communication amongst our users. However, in the end, Swedespeed is not liable for any problems that result out of participating in a Group Buy on this site. Let the buyer beware.
