DeutscheSpeed Charter - What this site is all about

Deutschespeed

DeutscheSpeed is a place for like-minded enthusiasts to share information, chat and learn more about cars. Most people who are interested in M, AMG & RS machines have more in common with each other than someone an M3 driver and someone who drives a 320d so rather than have a focus that purely focusess on one particular brand, this site was developed so that german performance car owners had a place to hang out. At the time of writing this, it's very early days but as the site grows and we need volunteers to help moderate our goal is to avoid the mistakes made by other forums and keep the site as community-centric as possible.

MODERATORS / RULES
  • When the site is busy enough to require moderating staff, we'll ask for volunteers from the userbase and moderators will be elected on a 12month term. Elections will be held every year and anyone can volunteer to stand for election.
  • The site will be moderated "lightly". Where a member is causing problems they'll be politely steered away from trouble first and after that a three-strike-rule will be adopted. With the third strike being a ban. This is something that would only be used for users deliberately mis-using the site.
  • Threads will never be deleted and if a thread is locked the moderator in question must state why whilst linking to the rule the thread has contravened. Mods must give at least two warnings before locking a thread.
  • If a member is banned (temporarily or permanently) the reason for the ban will be listed on their profile whilst they're banned. We don't beleive that things should be done in secret or without explanation.
  • Threads will never be deleted and if a thread is locked the mod in question must state why whilst linking to the rule the thread has contravened. Mods must give at least two warnings before locking a thread.

TRADERS / SPONSORS / ADVERTISING
This is not a money-making enterprise. Hopefully some Google Ad revenue will help contribute to server costs and licenses etc but until it reaches a certain size a site like this doesn't cost much money to run. With that in mind we are focused on bring "sponsors" into the forum just to bring in advertising revenue. If a company can ad value to our members, offering interesting parts of services and/or can offer a discount in return for being a part of our community, we're happy for them to be here, FOR FREE. If you're interested in advertising your business on the site please email info(at)deutschespeed.com to discuss what you can bring to the forum and we'll look at getting you set up.

HOBBYISTS
Some forum members often make custom parts or have these made in small batches or organise group buys etc. Whatever the reason, if you've got interesting parts to sell and you do so on a regular basis but aren't a business and don't want or need a dedicated section of the forum for this, you're welcome to sell in the classifieds section. We'll even help you do it. All we ask is that you engage with us first so that we can get you properly set-up and ensure that you can properly look after our users.

THE BOILER ROOM / GENERAL CHAT
No topic of discussion is off-limits on this site. If content is libellious or potentially illegal then we'll have to remove it, but as long as members are treating each others with respect we don't believe in dictating what they can discuss here.
If a subject is particularly emotive or controversial, it belongs in The Boiler Room. This is a section of the site that has no moderation. Content and conduct will only be looked at if a complaint is made or if we find something legally troublesome. If you're easily offended do not visit that part of the forum.
