Whether you are new to The Colorado Karter or a regular visitor, welcome!
The staff at The Karter strongly believes in preserving unity and respect among members of the karting community. With this in mind, please read the following guidelines to become familiar with the behavior that is expected and required to be an active member on The Colorado Karter forums.
If you have questions or concerns about the policies outlined here, please reach out to us at: [email protected]
What guidelines must I obey here?
In order to keep this an informative place for all, there are certain guidelines that need to be followed.
Use your real name.
When registering with The Colorado Karter, members MUST use their real name, first and last, as the DISPLAY Name – not your username. (note: Users registered prior to 01/01/2018 will be allowed to retain their current username, but will be strongly urged to update their registration in accordance with this guideline)
Respect one another.
Treat others in your messages as you would like to be treated; respect works both ways. Any blatant insults to others will be deleted without warning, and suspensions and bans may be imposed upon users that flagrantly or repeatedly violate common respect for other individuals.
At The Karter, we do encourage karting industry members to advertise their work and business through appropriate channels, such as press releases, organized advertisements, or posts within the appropriate channels (karting businesses forum, etc.). However, blatant, obvious self-promotion of one’s self or one’s business, or the blatant promotion of another’s business, will not be tolerated. Repeated subtle attempts to mention one’s business services is the same as advertising.
No inappropriate material.
Material must be karting related, or at the least, related to motorsports. Excessive posting of non-karting related material is discouraged.
No inappropriate language.
Please keep in mind that this forum is visible to the wider public. If you have to pause to consider if a certain word or phrase is appropriate for this forum, that means it isn’t.
Spamming is either posting repeatedly about the same thing (either in a single forum or multiple forums) or starting multiple topics about the same thing. There are other actions that are considered spamming, such as constantly posting off-topic as well as providing links that have nothing to do with the forum at hand. Spam will be deleted without warning, and may result in suspension or ban of a person’s account.
The Karter will exercise some leniency on this. We don’t mind if you bring in another idea or two, but try to stay focused. If you think it’s a good enough topic, start a new thread about it. This also prevents losing a good idea in a thread about another topic. Threads that wander significantly off-topic may be closed and/or trimmed.
No Impersonating or antagonization.
Attempting to pose as another registered user will not be tolerated and will result in the deletion of that username and the immediate and permanent ban of the impersonator. This also applies to not-so-clever variations of registered names.
The Karter would like to remind our members that personal conversations are for the telephone, or email, and not for discussion forums. A minimum of friendly banter is to be permitted, but threads with excessive conversations will be deleted or trimmed accordingly.
Topics that are designed to start an unruly argument/flame war will be treated as spam and deleted without warning.
Over the years, The Karter has seen folks who try to find the loopholes in these guidelines, or enjoy being clever by circumventing the spirit and intent of the forums. Therefore, The Karter reserves the right to edit, delete, or ban for our own reasons, without warning. Repeated violations of board guidelines will result in either temporary or permanent suspensions of posting privileges. More serious violations may result in further actions, including contacting the offender’s ISP and other authorities.
Thank you in advance for abiding by these guidelines which will help make the forums enjoyable for all!
