We at DW like to share our home with all you good members. In order to ensure things run smoothly we do ask you to adhere to the Detailing World Rules and Charter – kind of like wiping your feet before you come in and respecting our home.

By becoming a member of DetailingWorld™ you agree to adhere to the charter and rules. Members that violate these rules may be suspended or banned. While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve [b]the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.


Introduction
First of all let me introduce you to the folk that help make DetailingWorld™ the nice place that it is. By all means feel free to contact them by private message if you have questions.

The Senior Staff:

Whizzer (Bill) – Advertising/Traders/Sponsors/Dw Merchandise. Calming influence on DW generally trying to keep things friendly
Johnnyopolis (John) – 3rd Mitchell brother and techy bloke who keeps the forum running.
Shaun (Shaun) – Administrator, long serving, hard working, DW detective:cool:

You may also come across DW Chief. This shadowy figure is somewhat of a legend in detailing circles and is only ever spoken about in hushed tones. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe DW Chief can help.


And lastly DW Sheriff and his trusty steed Lightning are the rooting, tooting, gun slingers of DetailingWorld™. Sheriff spends most of his time at the ranch but can and will ride into town to hand out his own unique style of outlaw justice or even just to say……….Howdy Partners! Lightning pops up every now and then when the Sheriff has had too much liquor! Lightning has made some good friends on here although some do appear a tad too 'keen'!

Links to non detailing items are allowed, but if at all unsure, PM a Moderator/Admin to confirm it's okay before posting it on the forum. Links to your own Ebay items or other sources are not permitted under any circumstances and could result in a ban. If you are interested in advertising, contact Whizzer.

  • "How much is this worth" (including where to sell etc) type threads which could easily lead to a sale for the poster are not allowed, the only leeway on this is if the poster has an active paid subscription to the for sale section, in which case the moderator will use his discretion as to if they should delete the thread or not.
  • Please do not add your website to your profile if it is a business.
  • While we do not mind users mentioning other forums, blatant advertising or repeated bumping of posts with a web address within will not be tolerated.Please ask an Admin prior to making the post.Advertising other Forums is at the discretion of the Admin team.

  • Any thread that is deemed a paid detail will be removed (without notice) -If you are doing paid details then please subscribe as a Supporter where you can freely advertise your work
  • Homebrewing products - reviews/threads are at the discretion of DW
Group Buys
  • Permission must always be sought from a moderator before commencing a Group Buy. If what you propose to buy clashes with what an approved trader sells then it is unlikely you will be given permission.
  • The Group Buy organiser is to supply DW with their full name, address and contact details BEFORE being allowed to organise a Group Buy.
  • The Group Buy organiser is to have a minimum post count of 200 posts
  • The Group Buy organiser is to have a minimum duration of 3 months membership
  • The Group Buy description must clearly contain a FINAL price, including shipping and a timescale be provided for guidance (this is always difficult, as it does change give or take, but people need to know what timescales they're looking at)
  • Group Buys's must not exceed 65 days, to allow for paypal disputes to be opened, credit card charge backs issued etc
  • DW Group buys are run by members and whilst we will try to help if there is a disput we DW accept no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for any transactions.
Personal Sales
  • A Personal Sale includes used items and may include the odd new item but should not contain multiples of a new item. Personal sales are not to be advertised elsewhere unless clearly stated and not under any circumstances to be touted by pm.
  • A subscription to the personal sales section can be bought quite cheaply (for selling only) - details can be found in your user control panel - see your profile. Unsubscribed persons must not attempt to trade on the forum or by private message and must not carry a link to a trading website, if you do then this could result in a ban.
  • A photograph of the goods being sold the actual item, must be displayed, sometimes an item may be sealed and this might be allowed at admins discretion, buyers should be cautious with sealed items though.

    You must provide a picture of your username against the item/box on a piece of paper, that's readable, a photo in front of your computer /tablet screen showing your user name logged into Detailing World will also suffice (showing the date).

  • The Price must be clearly outlined at the start of the post. The price is entirely up to the thread starter and if you do not agree with the price – then simply do not pay it! , make offers but please do not link to other adverts or websites saying an item can be bought for this or that price etc. The price must include postage (to UK) and a discount can be offered for collection at buyers discretion. The first person to offer the ASKING price gets the goods even if there are offers already tabled but not accepted.

  • Profiteering is not allowed, by this we mean the selling of items for more than the RRP like when a new console is released and it was purchased purely to sell on for a profit (this rule is for all items like concert tickets, tablets etc etc not just consoles.

  • All dealings are to be done on the thread and no private messages. All offers are then visible and nothing 'underhand' will go on.
  • If you have a problem with a transaction or the thread goes ‘off topic’ please contact a moderator for advice.
  • DW Personal sales are run by members and whilst we will try to help if there is a disput we DW accept no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for any transactions.
  • No firearms / weapons/ alcohol/ tobacco or fake goods should be traded on this site.
  • All sellers must obtain a receipt or Certificate of Posting (detailing the recipient's address) when sending each package to its respective buyer. This will prevent loss of money by either party should the item(s) fail to arrive.
  • Mulitple New products are not allowed unless authorised by a Moderator
  • For items of high value and/or product types that are prone to counterfeiting, it is reasonable that the prospective buyer/s may request some form of proof of purchase/ownership if it is to be posted. As a seller, if you do not have this proof (for example if you didn't buy the item/s new yourself), then it may be advisable not to sell that item on DW, or restrict to collection only. Buyers need to use sound judgement for sales of this type as DW cannot be held responsible for the authenticity of any item offered for sale in 'Personal Sales'.
  • Any thread that does not stick to the rules will be deleted - Any post or thread may be removed at a moderator’s discretion without informing the post / thread author of the reason. We simply do not have the time nor the inclination to pm every member whose post we choose to moderate – roll with it! Please do not question moderating decisions on the forum (if you have a query contact a moderator/ admin via pm)Doing so could result in a ban.


DW Members Section

  • This section is subject to the normal rules of advertising
  • All offers are subject to the authorisation of Admin and if deemed to not be appropriate will not be allowed
  • Section is for offers from business's that may enhance offers to DW members excluding Detailing related companies or detailing products - all subject to discreation of Admin

Approved Traders/Forum Sponsors
  • These can trade in multiple new (and used!) products as they see fit on the forum. However any 'promotion of products' is to be kept to their individual section. Links to websites are allowed in their profiles and signatures. A trader after contacting a member of the mod/admin team can start a Group Buy on a product that they sell should they wish.
  • To those who wish to become an Approved Trader please contact Whizzer by private message (pm).
DW Supporter.
  • A DW Supporter has paid a subscription to carry a signature linking to their valeting/detailing website or Company .NB this does not include retail sales. The DW Supporter can also carry their link in their profile. Again this subscription can be found in the user control panel in your user profile.
  • The DW Supporter can also change their username to reflect their valeting/detailing business or company. New Members to detailing world can no longer register with a business name. Older members who joined with a business name have been allowed to keep them - call it Grandfather rights but you have to draw a line in the sand at some point!
  • Given that a DW Supporter pays for these advertising rights other members will not be allowed to advertise their 'paid' services either through their profiles or through posting in topics where persons have requested a recommended detailer.
  • What is Talked about / posted within the Business section stays within the Business section and is not for the public forum.
  • DW hold no responsibility for any work carried out by the supporters
  • Insurance and public liability is upto said supporter and not down to DW again please make sure you check out the companies carefully and that you are fully happy with the service they provide
  • No links within any Detail Write Ups to retailers unless admin approved
    [*} DW will not be held responsible for insurance checks and Customers must do their own check to make sure they are happy with a supporters liabilities and insurance -property damage (includes customer cars), business interruption, public liability (includes work being performed), employer’s liability, product liability and road risks is all down to the customer to check

We would encourage you not to share your personal data and we are not responsible for any information you choose to provide or communicate in such forums. Any disclosures you make are at your own risk.
