Default Forum Rules - please read. (Updated November 2012)

Thank you for registering and welcome to South East Scoobies! Please read the following forum rules, and enjoy being part of the most active Subaru community in the South East

General Rules:

- While debating/discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice, and our decision is final in these matters.
- Bad language, swearing and abuse of the swear filter by substitution of different letters is not allowed.
- Spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
- Although the majority of our members are over 18 we request that you think before you post anything that you may feel is unsuitable.
- Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
- Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed, and this is closely monitored by the South East Scoobies Admin team.
- Please post in English, and avoid posting in text speak.
- Do not post quoting other suppliers in our Trade Advertisers forum(s), the traders we have on the site take the time to come on here and offer our members (you) a discount. If you know of another supplier who may be able to offer similar services then ask them to register with us.

These rules cover most situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure that the site is not disrupted or abused in any way.
We reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, although where possible we will issue a warning to a user if deemed appropriate.

New Members:

Some forum features are not available until you reach a set number of posts. This include the For Sale areas and Private Message system.


Linking to a commercial products/services in signatures is not allowed. If you wish to link to a commercial website then this should be entered into your Home Page in your profile. You may also not advertise a company name within your signature, unless you are an Authorized Trader.

Signature size limits are controlled by option on the site. If your signature does not meet with the size guidelines for the User Group which you are a member of then you will be informed when you try and apply the changes.


Animated avatars are allowed as long as these meet the image size guidelines for your User Group.

Advertising Services / Traders:

If you would like to become an Authorised Trader on SES then contact us via email at, or PM either Steve_PPP or Silversurfer. As an Authorised Trader:

- We will create you a forum to advertise your services - you will be able to post threads relating to any promotions/offers in this section.
- You will not be charged a fixed fee to become a trader. Instead, we encourage you to make a voluntary donation towards the running costs of SES, and contribute to the community by offering product discounts to our members where suitable. Donations can be made via Paypal to
- You will be able to post company information/adverts in your signature and avatar. We can also update your username to represent your company name if you wish.

Please note, we reserve the right to remove any trader from SES, if the Admin team feels is it necessary to protect our members from poor customer service experiences.
