  • Commercial Membership

    Hi Guys

    It has been requested that we provide a quick reference to the commercial posting rules for the forum. The following are the conditions of commercial membership that our sponsors are required to follow, and this applies to any business that wishes to join the forum for the purpose of promoting their product sales. This does not apply to businesses promoting detailing services.

    There is a bit of a grey area where professional detailers are also providing sale of products to their clients. The following is a basic guideline to assist these members to stay within the forum rules:

    1. Show & Shine write ups and threads showing the use of products is acceptable.
    2. Avoid threads involving recommendations of the products you carry. Let the other members do these recommendations based on their experiences.
    3. Do not use the PM system or chatbox to promote the products you carry

    As mentioned, this is a grey area, and grey is difficult to have clear cut rules for every scenario. Our aim is to have these members contribute as freely as possible without conflicting with our sponsor's interests.
