The Forum Rules:

1. All posts must be in English.

2. Posting pornographic material is banned. If it could be remotely classified as NSFW (Not Safe For Work), don't expect to be able to post it here. Use your discretion or the moderators will use theirs. Do not link to any site that contains adult content, sexually oriented material or might otherwise be considered offensive. Vulgarities (swearing) are permitted within reason. Pornographic language is not acceptable.

3. Do not propose/link to any site that contains warez/copyrighted software/materials that can be downloaded illegally. Inappropriate links will be deleted and the poster will receive a warning.

4. Spamming isn't permitted. At all. So don't do it. The motovlog forum has a ZERO TOLERANCE spam policy that will result in a permanent ban.

5. Multiple accounts are not permitted.

6. No trolling. Any action deemed to be such by a mod will result in an instant week long ban. A troll is defined as "someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response."

7. Any attempt to provoke the moderators/admins is not permitted. We all have a sense of humor, but don't push us.

Course of action (if not previously mentioned):

1. Warning via PM
2. Continued offense results in 7 day ban.
3. Continued offense after 7 day ban results in 1 month ban.
4. Continued offense after one month ban results in permanent ban.

If you feel a post is offensive or see anything that you think shouldn’t be here then please use the "Report" link on every post. Help us to help you.
These rules are subject to change. Actual courses of action are at the moderators' discretion.

The rules in Thunderdome are SIGNIFICANTLY relaxed, at the expense of moderator non-involvement. If you go in the Thunderdome, you had better be able to take it as well as you dish it.

Thunderdome Rules:

1.No personal information is to be posted about anyone, i.e., Real Names, Addresses, Phone numbers, email addresses. Release of Personal Information that doesn’t belong to you is grounds for immediate permanent banning.
2. No posting of copyright/warez/pornographic material.
3.When (not if) you get butt-hurt, don’t complain to the moderators, simply leave the Thunderdome.
4. Seriously. Don't go whining to a moderator, admin, or anyone else when you've got a problem in Thunderdome. Refer to rule 3. Mods and Admins only care about rules 1 and 2 in the Thunderdome

General Forum Guidelines

1. Keep the conversations civil. If you're in a debate, don't attack the other person; attack their points. Saying something like, "You're wrong because you're an idiot" does nothing to further your own point and will merit corrective action by the moderators.

2. Keep your signature a reasonable size. If you include a picture it should be no bigger than 100 pixels tall. A “reasonable size” = moderator’s discretion relating to how your signatures affects forum layout and overall look. Avatars are to be no bigger than 100 x 100 px.

3. Post your comment/question to the most appropriate place. Any posts deemed to be in the wrong forum will be moved. Do not cross-post the same question to multiple places.

4. Make sure you have read the parent article/post completely before posting a reply.

5. Choose an appropriate subject line. Try to summarize the problem briefly in the subject, and elaborate in the message itself. Repeat the subject in the body if it will make things clearer. Do not use all caps and do not add false information just to get attention. An example of a bad subject would be "HELP ME". A good subject might be, "Bike crashes when I drink". Do not use a URL as a thread title.

6. Include as much information as you can when seeking help.

7. Avoid useless posts. This includes: Thread bumping, useless one liners, flamewars, trolling and spamming.

8. Thank those who help you. Acknowledgement of a helpful suggestion not only placates those who helped you, it may also help others with a similar problem. All those who have been helped on this forum are invited to help other users by responding to their questions when they know the answer and/or to consider donating to the project.

We want the chatroom to be a friendly, social place where people are free to speak their minds and have fun with each other. The rules below are there to keep people from being outright offensive, and to help ensure that everyone has as good a time in there as anyone else.
In case you don't know, the blue people are normal users, the white are moderators, and matth1138 and Trinith are gold, they are the owners. Below are the rules that will be enforced as well as some general guidelines that we'd like everyone to follow as well.


1. Keep it civil. Arguing is healthy, but there's no need to get angry about something. Just agree to disagree and move on.

2. No racial slurs or personal attacks. That includes giving out personal information about other users, most name-calling, etc.

3. Harassment and joking about/making light of tragedies will not be tolerated.

4. When posting links warn the room BEFORE making the post if the content contains nudity, gore, or anything else that's not safe for work. Some people really are at work, others simply don't want to see it. Give them the option.

5. Idling and being AFK - I've noticed lots of people enter and comment on how many people are in the chat, but none of them are speaking. If you're at your computer and looking at the chat from time to time then fine, stay connected. However, if you're going to bed, going to work, or just leaving in general, please go ahead and sign out. The only thing worse than an empty chat is a chat full of silent people.

General Guidelines:

1. Antagonizing the moderators or admin is generally considered to be a pretty bad idea. Doing so will invoke whatever wrath they feel necessary.

2. When you first sign in change your name and add your YouTube address (if you have one) to the homepage box. It will help everyone else find their way to your content.

3. If you have a problem with any user PLEASE get in touch with one of the moderators or admin. It will be beneficial to you to have a screenshot of whatever it is you're planning on complaining about. Complaints against mods should be made to the admin (matth1138 or Trinith) and if you want to lodge a complaint about one of the two Admin then you should contact the other one.

4. Use some common sense. We want everyone to feel free to join us in the chat without having to worry too much about being offended. Remember, this place has a multinational user-base and just because something is acceptable where you live doesn't mean it isn't incredibly offensive to someone else.

5. English is preferred. This really shouldn't be much of an issue, but most of the users speak English as their only language. Don't expect anyone to know what you're talking about if you start using another language.


We're going to be pretty liberal, and the severity of the consequences will be made to fit the severity of the infraction using the moderator’s judgment.

On the first offense there will be a warning issued privately. No need to publicly berate people.
If the warning is heeded then the offender will effectively be forgiven and that's that.
However, should the offenses continue with no regard given to the first warning a second one will be issued publicly.
After the public warning the moderator(s) present will ban the offender for a time not to exceed 6 hours.
Should the 6hr ban not be enough and the offender comes back and continues disregarding the rules then the Admin/Owners will be dealing with it. The ensuing ban will last for a day, maybe 2, followed by a week if they persist.

Should someone be banned for a week and come back still acting out, attempt to circumvent being banned, or berate the admin or moderator through other channels (such as here, on youtube, facebook, etc.) then they will lose their chatting privileges permanently. So far no one has been banned permanently who wasn't a spammer, do us all a favor and don't be the first.

The chat is not owned by, nor is it moderated by the same team.
