Post Forum & Marketplace Rules

1. Search before posting.

Use one of our search functions before posting, whether you have a question or something new to share, it's very likely someone already asked that question or shared that news.

2. Member conduct.

2.1 Language: The Genesee Valley Kart Club is a family oriented organization. This Forum opens the club up to a worldwide internet community. As a result, what is ‘ok’ to say in your part of the world may not be ok in someone else’s part of the world. Please think about who is reading what you write. Keep in mind that what you think of as acceptable use of language may not be acceptable to others. Conversely, while reading member posts, remember that word you find offensive may not be to the writer. Tolerance is a two way street.

2.2 Acceptable Use: GVKC is used by people of all ages, including minors. It's not acceptable to post nude/pornographic imagery, which includes exposure of the male or female genitalia or of female breasts. Any derogatory content whether its text, pics, or video will get you an instant ban.

2.3 Flaming: Defined as belittling, talking down to, or yelling (typing in caps) to any other memebr. Losing your temper and flaming another member, or group of members, is not acceptable behavior.

2.4 Personal attacks, racial, political and/or religious discussions: GVKC is a discussion forum about the sport or karting. Karts are not racial, political, religious or personally offensive, therefore none of these types of discussions are permitted in the forums.

2.5 New Members: Treat new members the way you would have liked to have been treated when you were a new member. Provide the new members with guidance, advice and instruction always with respect and courtesy.

2.6 All members are expected to read and adhere to the GVKC forum rules.

3. Post only using a clear subject and message.

You're most likely to receive a helpful answer to your question if you use a short subject title that describes your problem and a message that explains in detail what your problem is and what you've tried to solve it.

4. Post a message only once.

We don't need unnecessary clutter, You're free to edit your message as you like, so if you do not receive an answer revisit your message and see if you can describe your problem better. Not everyone is online at the same time, it might take a while before you receive an answer.

5. Do not post warez.

If a piece of software requires you to pay to use it, either pay or find your cracks and serials somewhere else. We do not accept warez nor do we permit any member to promote or describe ways in which Warez, cracks, serial codes or other means of avoiding payment, can be obtained.

6. Do not spam.

If you wish to advertise a product, contact us so we provide ads. But do not post it in the forums, it will be removed and you're likely to receive a ban.
You are however allowed to sell used goods like your own device, parts of your device or accessories for your device in the marketplace forum, please read the rules there before posting. (This rule includes signatures, if you use a signature it will appear in your post)

7. Donations.

We appreciate all donations to

8. Don't get us in trouble.

Don't post copyrighted materials or do other things that will obviously lead to legal trouble. If you wouldn't do it on your own homepage, you probably don't want to do it here either. This does not mean we agree with everything the software piracy lobby try to impose on us, it simply means you cannot break any laws here, since we'll end up dealing with legal hassle caused by you. Please use common sense: respect the forum, its users, and those that write great code.

9. Help others if you can.

If you see posts from others where you can help out, please do. This place exists because people are helping each other, and even if you are relatively new to the matter, there's probably already quite a few people newer than you that would benefit from what you've learned. Don't be shy.

10. Advertising and Income Generation

Commercial advertising, advertising referral links, pay per click links and other income generating methods are forbidden. Do not use GVKC forums as a means to make money.

11. Create only one User Account

You are allowed one User Account. If you create additional accounts, Moderators will disable them and your original account may also be disabled or infracted.

The GVKC Market Place, hereafter MP, is provided free to members. The Genesee Valley Kart Club, its moderators, administrators, owners and legal advisors do not warrant, guarantee or endorse any item offered for sale or trade on this forum.
SIMPLE ENGLISH: Trade at your own Risk.

The MP is for use by private parties only, do not post commercial links (SPAM) or links to private sales taking place on other sites ie: eBay, Craig’s List, etc.
SIMPLE ENGLISH: No Business links allowed.

All transactions must take place in the public forum; use of the Private Message (PM) system to buy/sell/trade is against MP rules. Use of the PM system to convey private information, shipping address and payment details is acceptable.
SIMPLE ENGLISH: If you trade by PM how do you know the person you are buying from isn’t selling the same item to 10 people? Keep all deals in the open.

Do not send money by any means that you cannot track or recover. Sending money via Western Union is a known scamming method and although it may be necessary due to country restrictions it is not recommended.
a. If your not dealing in cash, we recommend the use of PayPal® or another secure method of transferring money.
b. GVKC is not responsible for transactions gone ‘bad’. It is YOUR responsibility to know with whom you are dealing, and YOU assume all responsibility for the transaction.
SIMPLE ENGLISH: Use PayPal® whenever possible. You are responsible for your own actions.

By posting on the MP you agree that you have read, understand and will abide by these rules.
