The Rules

If you want to avoid a ban or suspension then make sure you adhere to the following simple rules...

1.Avoid extreme bad language or swearing. Avoid using phrases such as "You've fucking well hit the clit right on the nail there, you cunting bastard", when a simple "yes" will do.

2.No Flaming, personal attacks.

3.No Offensive or Abusive posts.

4.No discussion of illegal activities.

5.No spamming.

6.No Obscene Graphic Material.

7.No alternate accounts are allowed. You may not use two or more different login IDs.

12.Be curtious and polite to the community.

14.All items in the For Sale section must have an asking price, we're not fucking ebay! Posts may be removed without prior notice.

15.Keep in-line images to 900px wide or below.

16.In order to advertise or organise 'group buys' or multiple sales of the same item (ie. a mass produced item) you must be a subscribing Big Member.

17.Group buys, personal sales, wanteds and company sales must be placed in the correct forum. See individual forum stickies for regulations on posts.

18.Try to make the title of threads explanatory.

19.Avoid using CAPS in your posts unless you're really really cross..!

From time to time additional rules will be added when unperceived issues become apparent. These are given below.

20. The making of statements with no/little positive discussion is pointless and unproductive, and is not allowed.

21. No Trolls. If you want to piss people off for the sake of it find another forum.

22. Anyone found trying to hack another members account will be banned without warning. All logon activity and IP addresses are logged by default. Consequently if you conceal your IP you may be banned without warning.

23. The TBpicGallery should be used to display car/swap related images. Any other pictures may be removed without warning.

24. The PM system must not be used for negative discussion of other members. Although not monitored, any evidence that should come to light regarding the above will be dealt with swiftly and may result in a suspension or ban. (note: It also TB policy that the PM system remain exactly that a means of PRIVATE messaging between members. TB will not read your PMs)

25. The use of TWOBRUTAL club logos and/or graphics is strictly prohibited unless you have prior permission from a Moderator or Admin. The reason is purely to avoid confusion on other forums/websites as to your authority within TWOBRUTAL. Whilst we are very grateful to anyone who wishes to spread the word of TB we dont wish you to be mistaken for a Moderator/Admin for your own sake and ours.

Caveat: In most cases you'll get three warnings then a suspension or total ban based on your IP. For more serious issues an immediate ban will occur.

If you are unsure about any of these rules or feel they have been breached by others please inform a moderator or admin asap. You can alert a mod or the admin to an unacceptable post by clicking the Hazard sign at the top of the post.
