Social Media Posting Guidelines:

Our social media communities are intended to provide a place for fans of Track Junkies to discuss our services and your community. We welcome the diverse range of opinions that users (you) have to share and we want participants in our social media communities to have an honest conversation about our services, our team, and items of interest to the motorsport community. The Social Media Posting Guidelines we have established are meant to set the tone of the conversation and clearly lay the ground rules to ensure that everyone visiting our social media communities has a positive experience.

Respect everyone and keep it clean: Our social media communities are public, and we want everyone who visits to feel comfortable. A good conversation requires a community who is considerate to one another. Please be polite and treat everyone who you refer to with respect, including Track Junkies, our sponsors, our team, and our community. Civility and respect for the ideas of others is expected, always. Please give other posters “charity” when posts may have multiple meanings, or their meaning is unclear. We won’t tolerate attacks, and we’ll be forced to remove any content that includes profanity or obscenity, advocates or encourages expressions of violence, retaliation, bigotry, racism or hatred.

Be constructive: We are here to listen and help. Please try to focus on what we can do to help you instead of simply taking out your frustrations on us!

Don’t misinform or mislead: We will remove any comments that make false or unsubstantiated allegations.

Don’t spam: We entertain legitimate comments, but we won’t tolerate spam, excessive commenting (commenting multiple times in succession within the same post), or cross-posting (providing the same comment in multiple social media platforms or wall posts).

Don’t break the law: Illegal content or behaviour is not allowed. Don’t link or post any copyrighted or pornographic material, and don’t engage in behaviours like harassment, impersonation, intimidation or abuse. Track Junkies is not responsible for any use of material posted by users.

Permission to reuse: Anything you post online immediately becomes accessible to the public. We consider that level of willing disclosure to be permission to use the materials in other ways, if we choose, provided credit is given. If you don’t want us to reuse your material, DON’T SHARE IT on Our Sites!

The last resort: We don’t really want to have to do this, but at our sole and final discretion, Track Junkies may warn, suspend, and if necessary permanently ban commenters that ignore, flaunt or disregard these guidelines. Egregious disregard for these guidelines may also result in your being banned from our events.

Remember… we cannot possibly monitor posts on a 24/7 basis.  Comments, private messages and the like will be responded to promptly, once we become aware of them.
