What are the guidelines here?
These forums are the property of lakc.org. In order to keep this an informative place for all, there are certain guidelines that need to be followed. As a registered member of these forums, you agree to all of the terms and conditions set forth below.

Use your real name.
When registering with LAKC members MUST use their real name, first and last, as the Username.

Respect one another.
We invite and encourage a healthy exchange of opinions, disagreements are okay. If you disagree with a members post or opinion, by all means, challenge the opinion. However, there are going to be topics and discusions that will have heated debates. Please think before you post, and read what you typed before you post it. Keep your comments limited to the debate at hand and not make this a personal issue between you and another reader. There is tremendous diversity in age, race, gender, language and location and there will be a lot of varying opinions of different subjects. We are all human beings and we are all drawn to this site because we have a common bond as karting enthusiasts.

No self-promotion/advertising.
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. Forum members may include a single link to their personal website or business entity; extended business dealings should be conducted away from these forums. Use of Private Messages facility to solicit business is prohibited.

No inappropriate material/language.
The LAKC Forum is a place for PG material only where explicit, obscene or vulgar gestures, language, GIFs, JPEGs or other graphic files are NOT appropriate. We reserve the right to remove offensive postings, images, video, or any general content without notice.

Don’t spam.
Posts should have some sort of redeeming quality such as information, entertainment or advice. Useless posts that waste server resources or do nothing for the community will be moved and/or pruned at the discretion of the administrative staff. Repeated posting of useless material or material that promotes the degradation of the community will lead to removal of you posting privileges and/or total removal from the forum.

Stay on-topic.
There will be some leniency on this, and we don’t mind if you bring in another idea or two, but 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. Please post in English! We do not have resources available to moderate every language. Non-English threads or posts will be removed. Topics that are designed to start an unruly argument or flame war will be treated as spam and deleted without warning.

Final Reminders.
Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way. Therefore, we reserve 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. Thank you in advance for abiding by these guidelines which will help make the forums enjoyable for all.

All new users MUST register using their FULL First and Last name only.
