It seems that a lot of Moderator time is being spent correcting thread titles and moving threads to the correct forum despite all the measures that have been put into place to prevent this!!!

This message appears when you are creating a thread and is being constantly IGNORED


  • Please post in the correct section for the topic you are posting about. Take a minute to check through the forums list and find the correct forum or subforum.
  • Use a descriptive title for your thread and start it with your car details [Example Thread Title] 2001 E46 330i - Intermittent cutting out and rough idle.
  • Remember, the more descriptive and well written your threads are, the more accurate and plentiful the help offered will be.


Reduced Moderating time means LESS ASSISTANCE in threads which means less members gaining the information that they require in order to FIX THEIR CARS.

5 extra minutes taken by each and every member when creating a thread can free up hours of Moderating time.

Please adhere to these SIMPLE and EASY TO UNDERSTAND forum posting rules.

Please note that IF this situation does not improve then we will have no option but to DELETE threads created by REPEAT offenders.

Thank You for taking the time to re-familiarise yourselves with these forum posting rules:thumbsup






Bimmerforums UK Forum Guidelines
This is the beginning of what may (or may not) become a larger post but it outlines a few basic forum rules to keep the Bimmerforums house in order so to speak!


  • When making a post about a problem with your car, Please list in your thread title...the MODEL, BODY SHAPE (eg E46) and YEAR of your car. If you can post the last 7 digits of your chassis number in your post it's even better. The reasons for this are obvious. If you don't know the body shape of your car no problem, but include the year and model as a minimum.
  • Please post your question in the CORRECT and RELEVANT forum. (read through the list, go into subforums if needed and find the most appropriate one for your question. Incorrectly placed posts will be moved the first time, and deleted on subsequent occasions!)
  • Please try and include as much relevant information into your post title and thread as possible...this enables people to actually offer useful advice to you..
    For example Quote:
    Please help, my car is broken.
    is a completely useless post!! Instead, include specifics about your cars problem and all other relevant information. A good title would be '2002 E46 325Se - Intermittent brake warning light problem'
  • Do not post duplicate threads of your problem or issue in multiple forums... if you do then both threads will likely be deleted and we will be annoyed with you for making us have to work harder!
  • Please use full sentences and punctuation. Posts or threads in text speak will be edited or may be removed.
  • If you haven't received a response to your thread after say, half a day... Firstly, check you have posted it in the correct forum, secondly, ensure you have included lots of information to help forum members HELP YOU! Do not keep 'bumping' your thread to the top of the list to try and get a response.
  • For Sale adverts - These are only allowed to be posted in the For Sale/Wanted Section. Users MUST have 50 genuine posts and AT LEAST a months forum membership. Otherwise your advert will be deleted and you will receive a warning (initially)
  • There is a post limit in place (50 genuine posts) for selling items on Bimmerforums UK. We are strongly against people spamming, flood posting or junk posting to get their post count up.. Meaningless posts will be deleted and if flouted repeatedly will result in a ban.
    Also, you must be a member for a minimum of one month in addition to 50 posts.
  • Only one username is allowed per forum member and software checks are in place to prevent multiple personalities. If you are found to be using multiple usernames from different IPs (we have ways to tell...) they will all be banned!
  • Bimmerforums has thrived and grown significantly due to our founding principles....
    To try and offer as much good, free advice to fellow petrol heads and human beings as possible.
    To keep the forum well organised and catalogued so info is easily searchable.
    To not over run the forum with advertising or use any forum of pop up adverts or other junk.
    To hold user details very securely and do our bit in winning the war on SPAM.
  • Please do not PM an admin or Super Moderator or Moderator to ask them your technical or car related questions. PMs of this nature will be deleted. Instead, do what everyone else does and post your question in the relevant forum! Don't be afraid, even if the question seems stupid or obvious,The stupidest questions are the ones not asked.
  • If you would like to advertise on Bimmerforums UK please have a read through the traders rules Bimmerforums UK advertising. Advertising services or products of a commercial nature is not allowed and such posts will be deleted and after a first warning, the user will be banned.
  • Posting blatant links to 'competitor sites' is not permitted for obvious reasons. This includes adding sneaky links in your profile information or posts. A user flouting this rule will initially be warned ONCE, then banned for life.
Thanks

After re-titling 5 pages in the Chassis and Brakes forum it seems there are a few repeat offenders that have been members for long enough to know better.

Please help us to help you:thumbsup

Gentlemen, having worked from home today I have had to amend probably 30% of titles. Personally, I have things I would rather do, and bear in mind that the forum is for you all so it benefits you correctly titling.

Some of these 're-titles' had 300 posts to their name ... Go and sit on the naughty step


Please, Please, follow the guidelines :thumbsup
