Forum Rules and Disclaimer - Please take the time to read and understand these.
By entering and participating in the BMW Fanatics' forum (“the Forum”) you agree to the following terms, conditions and rules of participation. These terms and conditions are contractually binding upon you and you agree to each of them, which are subject to change, without notice, and a current version is always available on the forum. Members who violate these rules may be suspended or banned.


1. Your username may not be more than 16 letters and/or digits long. If you set up a username longer than this the moderators of the site will amend it and you will be notified by email or PM. Usernames that advertise a business without the approval of BMWFanaticscoza will be changed or deleted without notice. A username will be deleted if it contains the words "Bmw fanatics" or "BMWfanatics" or "BMW fan" or "BMWfanatix" or "bimmer fanatics" or "fanatics" or "BMWfanatics.o.za" or any derivative username that is close to the registered domain names "bmwfanatics" or "the fanatics". This is the prerogative of BMWFanatics.co.za site administrator only. Using an email account as a username is not allowed. This is the prerogative of BMWFanatics.co.za staff only.

2. Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. (Please use good judgement when choosing user names, avatars, or images to post, and do not attempt to bypass the word filter. It is there for a reason.)

3. Use your judgement to post in the correct forum section. Any post not in the correct section may be moved without prior notice to the correct forum.

4. Please do not post offensive images or content. Any such images or content will be removed and a warning may be sent by PM to the person or persons involved. Any thread with questionable content, should be labeled as such in the topic title. E.g. NWS (not work safe). If the post is not marked then a moderator may change or edit your post to suit.

5. Any post or thread may be removed at a moderator’s discretion without informing the post / thread author of the reason.

6. Please do not post pictures of vehicles that advertise your business. These will be removed. Unless pre-approved in an advertising agreement with BMWFanaticscoza.

7. Any sort of advertising within pictures will be removed without notice. Unless pre-approved in an advertising agreement with BMWFanaticscoza.

8. Personal attacks, rudeness, flaming, baiting, insults to others, or arguments will not be tolerated. Challenge others’ points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Please refrain from making excessive negative comments. As the saying goes "If you have nothing nice to say then don't say it".

9. Any member who threatens anyone on the forum, via PM, instant messengers, or Email, will be banned immediately without notice. We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice. Our decision is final in these matters.

10. Please do not question or discuss moderation or administrative decisions on the forum. If you have a query, then please PM a moderator.

11. If you feel you were treated unfairly by a moderator and wish to complain about them, then please contact one of the forum administrators or via email: bmwfanatics@live.co.za

12. If you break the forum rules in any way, or commit an act or omission which may be considered detrimental to the Forum in any way whatsoever, you may be dealt with accordingly in the sole and absolute discretion of the Site administrator. This can range from deregistration, suspension, or a ban and may range from a few days, weeks, months or may be of a permanent nature. Normally you will receive at least one warning before any action is taken. If you repeatedly break the same rule your account will be at risk of an extended (several months) suspension or even a permanent ban.

12.1 The administrator of the site has full authority and discretion to exercise these rights and may exercise these rights with immediate effect if he deems it necessary and no notice will be required.

12.2 The administrator of the site has full authority and discretion to ban or deregister a member account for whatever reason and without consultation or notice.

13. No commercial advertising or selling of any kind allowed in the forums, this is not eBay. If you are interested in advertising, contact the administrators about becoming a forum advertiser. Your signature/avatar/profile is not a place to advertise your business, website, forum, etc. Anything considered to be advertising or "spam" will be removed without notice.

14. Private sales are allowed in the traders forum, but if you are deemed a commercial seller posting in the traders forum, your post will be removed without notice. You need a minimum of 50 posts in order to use the Marketplace section.

15. Please do not add your website to your profile if it is a business.

16. While we do not mind users mentioning other forums, blatant advertising or repeated bumping of posts with a web address within will not be tolerated.
