Default The Rules that Govern FSS (including storefront/forsale rules)

User Restricted access (based on post count and length of time registered on the forum):
  1. Users with less than 30 posts and less than 30 days:
    • Cannot vote in polls
    • Can see that the NWS section exists but can't view it's content.
    • Cannot have a user photo album.
  2. All users:
    • Can see the Underground Exists but can not view it's content until they have met the requirements of the Underground section as well as requested access and have not had anyone oppose their entrance to this section(Other rules apply: See them here: http://www.floridastreetscene.com/fo...ead.php?t=4672)
  3. Underground members (refer to HERE for requirements of):
    • Can tag their own threads for search engine functionality.

General Site Rules of FloridaStreetScene.com

Think before posting, replying, and/or private messaging someone on this forum, if your statement/response/remark is something that would get you slapped/kicked/shot/beaten or spit on in real life or in the presence of the person you are making the comment too, then just don’t bother posting/typing it here.

Check your egos at the door please. Its cool to be confident and sure of yourself, but having too much e-ego is just dull. Save the "I'm better than you" attitude for other forums.

*NWS* (Not Work Safe), as long as it's posted with "*NWS*" in the thread title then you can show *NWS* content directly in the thread, so be warned that NWS threads are indeed NWS!! Thread must be prefixed properly. There are many prefixes that are preset and are required for any thread in this section. *NWS Gory* and *NWS Pr0n* are the current option for prefix, if you feel another is needed PM me.

Nude jailbait pictures will not be tolerated. (underage pornography) If a mod is aware that photos contain underage nudity, they will be removed. This is grounds for a instant Perma-ban, even if you edit your post you're getting banned, so don't post that kind of garbage here. You know it will get you put in jail, so don't bring it to this site so others can join you in jail.

Image Size: Max size permitted = 1024 x 768, recommended size for ease of viewing to all users is 800 x 600. If you wish to have larger images available you can make clickable thumbnail images with www.photobucket.com (your best bet for image hosting as well, many options to help you link images fast and easy.) and other websites similar in nature like ImageShack.us, they don't require an account either.

Hating: (read *RACISM*) and/or hating on people will not be tolerated. Its one thing to call someone an asshole or a bitch, it's another to go after a particular person because of their heritage. Also making a direct personal attack towards an individual on this forum will not be tolerated, yes we like fun and games, just don't take it too far.

Post whoring: be smart people....if you make multiple threads in a row about the same stuff or similar then that’s just post whoring, also filling up entire pages with useless 1 word posts is the same. You'll get a warning and if it continues you'll be banned. If you're out of control you may get the banned without warning. Just earn your posts and make it easy. This also includes incessant double posts (posting again right after just having left a post).

Thread Locking...threads will be locked at 600 posts because of the strain it puts on the database every time it has to pull up the thread. They will also be locked when they are determined to have been in violation of any of the things mentioned above. Thread content can be whatever you like or the posters want as long as it does not break any of the rules above.

• Use of special characters in thread titles will get your thread deleted and you may be banned for 3+ days, to be determined by mod at time of ban.

Signatures should be reasonable in size, not take up an entire page, and should not contain any NWS pictures. Also, they should not have any shop's/store/retailer/sponsor's name or logo. If they wish to advertise on this site, have them contact the staff.

The entire signature is not to exceed 225 pixels high X 750 pixels wide. You can have multiple pics within the given space, just not multiple 225 x 750 pics. Those with sig images larger than this will be asked to re-size them.

What exactly does this mean? If you have an image and text below that and it's excessive it's probably out of size. If a 225x750 image would be exceeded by your text in either height or width then your sig needs to be adjusted. Lets not have sigs that take up the entire page as we want to see the threads not 20 sigs. If you do not have a program to re-size images and preserve the quality go to http://irfanview.com (best free image software out there).

Avatars: NWS avatars are not allowed. We don't want to see slits, clits, lips (not the ones on her face), dicks, sacks, bungs and nothing too "gory". Keep in mind, most of us surf the site while at work or during breaks at work. Respect your fellow forum members ability to be able to browse the site while at work or in the office.

Multiple User accounts. having more than one account is not allowed and multiple accounts will be banned, if you need something changed on your account all you have to do is ask. If you continue to make multiple accounts you will get all accounts prema-banned, AE's (alter ego) are not needed, permitted nor wanted here.


Breaking any of these rules will get you a warning at first, after that you face being banned from the site for any time the Moderator or Administrator feels in needed. You may get a ban earlier if you are out of control and don't want to stop. Very rarely will you see people who get Perma-banned from FSS, but it will be done for those who are out of control.

Store Front Rules of FloridaStreetScene.com. These rules will constantly change and be updated. I recommend you visit this thread from time to time to make sure there have not been changes that will affect you. Threads can and will be deleted without notice if you are found to breaking the rules.
  • Posts in the For Sale Forums do not add up to your post count.
Rules v2.0:
  • Post a Price, OBO is acceptable but must be stated, post an asking price along with OBO will help you more though. People don't want to have to guess a starting price.
  • Specify what is being sold and what car (or computer, and so on) it is for.
  • Links to eBay auctions are OK as long as you post in the thread title *ebay*, for your own benefit you should provide information as to what the listing is for. If you don't chance are no one will care enough to click the link.
  • Image Size: Max size permitted = 1024 x 768, recommended size for ease of viewing to users is 800 x 600. If you wish to have larger images available you can make clickable thumbnail images with www.photobucket.com (your best bet for image hosting as well, many options to help you link images fast and easy.).
  • No Cross posting. Double, triple or quad posting in different forums. (you may end up with all threads deleted, and a ban)
  • You may not advertise your product in another person's thread. Start your own thread.
  • No business advertisements: Contact the administration to set up a vendor account. For more information on Vendor accounts you can read up on them in the Vendors forum, HERE.
  • If you have a HONDA/ACURA part or car for sale, post it in the Honda parts section or Honda Vehicles section.
  • Third Party Sales: Must be stated that it is not your item and post contact information for the 3rd party, (This is for the sellers benefit as adding a middle man can severely complicate things and make it harder to make the sale). The other rules apply.
  • Firearms: Not permitted on this site at all! FYI: You are responsible for what you sell, you accept responsibility if you sell to a felon or other criminal. (you should be doing a background check on any person you sell such an item to).
  • Bumping threads: Do not bump your thread if the last post is less than 24 hours old (bans will be given).
  • No chit chat, unless you are seriously interested in the item that is posted for sale, do not reply.
  • Price disagreements: This is not to be discussed in the forums, if you don't like the price PM the seller concerning.
  • Store Front Thread Bashing: Bashing the seller or anything concerning the product is not permitted in the FS sections. If you feel the product is faulty or poor quality you can discuss that kind of product in the automotive discussion section, but you will not refer to the FS thread involved. If you don't like the sellers price then PM the seller to negotiate.
  • Use of special characters in thread titles (including all other areas of the forum) will get your thread deleted and you may be banned for 3 days(non active members will receive 7-14 day ban for 1st time offenses) or more, this includes repeating characters to draw attention to your thread over others..
  • We don't like having to ban people but if you get stupid in the For Sale sections then you might be looking at a ban
Please enjoy the site, it is here for you and everyone else to enjoy.

Users that have more than 30 posts and 30 days as a member can now open and close their own threads in the Storefront section of the forum. This will make it easier for when your items sell, you wont need me or another mod to close your threads for you. This will help to reduce the excess contact for things you have already sold.

Enjoy a little more freedom to so as you need on the forum.
