1.) R-E-S-P-E-C-T... That's right, rule Number 1 is Respect. If you don't show respect to others, they have every right no to have respect for you. This is especially important because it is the internet, and as simple mis-placement of words can dramatically change the meaning of what you say. 2.) Offensive Materials... Nothing illegal (Warez, Torrents, Copyrighted Items), pornographic, or excessivelly violent. 3.) Spamming & Digging... No spamming of advertisements or double-posting. Also, no digging up old topics and posting in them unless it is to add something, eg: extra blueprints, corrections. 4.) GTA'ed Creative Works... The clamining of someone else's work as your own is not only illegal, but extremely frowned upon here at SMCars.net. If you feel like someone is posting work that does not belong to them, DO NOT post in the thread. Instead, PM a Moderator or Administrator of your concern along with relevant proof. At this point, if deemed nessessary, the Mod/Admin will Lock the thread and the thread's creator will be given 7 days to produce proof that it is in fact their own work. If by this time no proof is given, the thread will be deleted and the theif banned for life. Please take note that if you post in the thread instead of contacting a Moderator/Administrator like stated above, you will recieve a 1-month ban. ------------------------- Penalties & Infractions...

If you have any hesitations of what you're about to do, don't do it. Also, SMC has every right to punish users as they see fit for acts that may not be exactly listed within these rules. Again, use common sense, because if you screw up, always remember that while you're on SMC, you have no rights, and failing to uphold SMCars.net's outstanding reputation as a friendly and helpful forum will be dealt with harshly.
