    No traders / tuners / retailers or Members are allowed to advertise their stock, company website, any form of commercial advertising or contact details. Without prior approval from one of the Administration. Any adverts or contact details posted without permission will be removed.

    Regular advertising is permitted only for our “Official” sponsors. We may consider one-off offers which may benefit our members, however permission of the forum administration MUST requested before posting in the forum. Any unauthorised advertising will be removed at the discretion of the team - this includes links/banners in signatures/avatars.

    VWAudi Forum offers companies an excellent advertising package on a yearly basis. This includes a banner advert with us, and a dedicated section. The banner is an ideal way of reaching members due to it being actively and randomly rotated to display on all pages within the forum. Your banner advert can be seen potentially hundreds of thousand times each year just on the forums, not only by the members but anyone who views our popular and active website, which have good Google links, for active search results.

    Taking out a dedicated forum area to discuss and advertise your products within the ‘Sponsors and Supporters’ forum, allow you access to set up Group Buys, and permission to have company links in your forum signatures, which allows your company to directly converse to potential customers.

    Advertising. If you have any enquiries regarding advertising please email us at advertise@vwaudiforum.co.uk - we will reply with details of our current rates.

    We always reserve the right to refuse advertising that does not fit the interests of the members or the site.

    It is also a breach o these rules, if you register with the site, post links in signature, avatars, posts or user titles prior to requesting detail of our advertising packages. Please request these BEFORE any promotion or advertising!

    Could everyone please read the rules and regulations regarding advertising on the forum. This includes links in posts, signatures and avatars.

    WE DO NOT ALLOW ANY FORM OF COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING UNLESS YOU ARE AN APPROVED SPONSOR!!


    We have many Companies on here that pay towards the up keep of the site, in return they PAY to advertise, which makes it impossible for us to allow FREE adverts. How would you feel if you paid to advertise on a site that allows others to advertise for free???? I know it would **** me off!

    Paid advertising keeps this site free to members, and in return we encourage members to use your Company for your services....

    We are getting fed up of removing links from the forum, from members putting links for their businesses, please stop now and follow the correct procedure

    From now on we will not only remove the links, but we will be deleting members accounts as well. DO NOT join the site, post links in signatures, or reply to posts promoting your business and then request approval/advertising details..

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    Please note the addition of rule 41 in the main forum rules

    41. Any member or company that fails to abide by the rules of the forum, and/or fails to take note of any warning a member of the team issues will have there account moved to the "Registered user - Moderated" usergroup. This means that all posts will need to be approved BEFORE they appear on the site. Any that the team feel is in breach of the rules will be deleted without warning or explanation.

    I am not sure which part of "DO NOT ADVERTISE ANY FORM OF BUSINESS UNLESS APPROVED" some people can't understand.....

    I have again noticed that certain Members think it is OK to offer there services to Members having been told on far too many occasions NOT TO!!!

    Not sure how many warnings you want but one more post that offers your services in any shape or form and you will be banned, no warning or explanation will be given... I will not mention names you know who you are, and you seem to think it s OK to ignore warnings, PM's and messages from the team, and get wound up when you get them....... STOP NOW! or get BANNED!

    I no longer care how long you have been a member or how many posts... you have been warned!

    I must be missing something here, or just be plain stupid.... No matter how many times we state that it is against the rules for a Member regardless how long they have been a member or how many posts they have, a certain member still thinks it is OK to ignore this rule...

    The site is paid for by the valued companies that PAY to advertise and offer there services to members, it is not fair that a certain member thinks its OK to do business for nothing... well he is wrong!

    I have now activated a new Usergroup on the forum "Registered user's - Moderated" this means that anyone ignoring the rules, and requests will have EVERY POST moderated for approval or deletion by one of the team, anything offering any form of business will be deleted without explanation... after all you know why... So if you appear in this group do not ask why, you should be aware... This will apply from Monday 9th November 2015.

    The rule: READ IT!! This applies to any Member that runs there own business either full or part time, as or alongside there current employment....

    "No traders / tuners / retailers or Members are allowed to advertise their stock, company website, any form of commercial advertising or contact details. Without prior approval from one of the Administration. Any adverts or contact details posted without permission will be removed.

    Regular advertising is permitted only for our “Official” sponsors.

    Unfortunately due to repeated requests to abide to the rules and not doing so I have had to use the "Registered User - Moderated" Group... I do not like doing this but when after repeated requests to abide by the rules and/or offer business services to members without becoming an approved trader and not acting on it, it was the only option left.

    From now on all posts made will need to be approved or removed by one of the team BEFORE they appear.

    Please DO NOT contact any of the team to ask why, you know why and you will not receive a reply.
