-1. General Posting Rules:
1.1 No "Flaming": Please do not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another user.
1.2 No "Trolling": Please do not post any topic that disrupts the peace and harmony of this community. Don't create meaningless threads with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. This includes messages in profiles and signatures.
1.3 No "Spamming": Please do not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this community the same message. You will not post for the sake of increasing your post count.
1.4 No "Offensive" Posts, Links or Images: Please do not post any messages that are obscene, gorish, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, racist, sexist, discriminatory, or otherwise in violation of any applicable laws. This includes links in your signature, profile, bookmarks as well as posted images, photos and avatars. No circumventing the censor system. Moderators will ultimately decide if something is appropriate or not.
1.5 No "Personal" Information: Please do not post the personal name, address, phone, email, private communications, or other information without the individual’s permission.
1.6 No "Out of Bounds" Posts: It is the policy of McLarenChat.com to "contain" some types of posts versus complete censorship. We may dedicate certain topics to specific forums.
1.7 No "Spoiler" Thread Titles: Please don't put spoilers in thread, post, or other content titles. Please use the the spoiler feature in the thread options.
1.8 No "Alias" User Accounts: Only one user account is allowed per individual regardless of reason. If another account is found when the original account is under a ban, then both accounts will be permanently banned and person will not be allowed to reregister.
Annual Ad limit: the number of ads an individual subscribed user is allowed to list in a calendar year is determined by their subscription class.
- Rossa Subscribed = 3 car ads and 20 parts/items ads in classified sections
- Silver Subscribed = 1 car ad and 5 parts/items ads in classified sections
- Sponsor and Classified Subscribed = Unlimited car and parts/items ads in the classified sections
No commercial party may list ads in the classified sections unless they are a Sponsor or Classified Subscribed
Daily Post limit: Any user is allowed to post at most 1 new ad per day for any unique item offered for sale.
- Duplicates/multiples of the same item or disparate items offered as a single lot at a lot price can be listed in a single ad. For example, 4 matching wheels, 10 of the same keychain, a small collection of McLaren books for a lot price, are OK.
- "Bumps" which are the use of non-meaningful posts such as: "bump", "still available", "great deal", "unique item", "anyone?", etc. are not permitted. Individual subscribed users are only allowed to bring their ads back to the main page by posting substantive new information, new pictures, or a meaningful change to a sale parameter, such as price or terms. For example by posting "Price reduced from $200 to $175", "Shipping and handling now at my expense", etc. Posting to bring your ad back up to the main page counts against the daily post limit.
- Replying to questions or comments from interested parties does not count against the daily post limit.
General Rules and Guidelines
- Rossa/Silver ad subscriptions are intended for private users who have items for sale infrequently, small collections that they may sell off in bursts, or sometimes higher numbers that are low in value or of unique benefit to the collector/enthusiast community. Classified Subscribed ad subscriptions are intended for users who are operating commercially, whether it is their full time or part time business, have items for sale continuously or otherwise atypical volume, or operate in a manner intended to generate profit.
- All commercial activity requires Sponsorship or Classified Subscription.
- Moderators will ultimately decide if something is commercial or not.
- Please see the Advert Posting Guidelines on our partner site for information on creating an advert and controlling the thread status tags.
- Asking price is required in order to list item for sale.
- The sale or commission of any non-OEM item with trademarked, copyrighted, or otherwise protected features is strictly prohibited. You may be asked to provide proof of permission/licenses to sell your items.
- Anyone posting on an ad must be 1) asking a legitimate and relevant question; or 2) providing accurate, first-hand information on that specific car, item, or seller. All other commentary (negative or positive comments regarding the condition or asking price, comparing asking price to current market/recent sales/other cars or items for sale, critiques or plaudits for the seller, etc.) will be deleted and repeat offenders will be subject to infraction/ban/etc at the discretion of the moderators. Offers should be made in private through “conversations” (top right under username, or just go to advertiser’s profile “start a conversation”)
