___________________________________________________

Our guidelines for Porsche ownership reviews

Owners like you rely on 911uk.com reviews when planning to use 3rd party services for your Porsche ownership experience. Reviews must be:

- In line with Posting Guidelines as above
- Authentic reviews of first-hand experiences
- Relevant to other owners
- Unique and Independent
- Original
- Submitted for an appropriate business
- No reviews by children under the age of 13

Valid email address and standard email formatting:

- The email address associated with your account must be correct; we may need to contact you if there is a problem with your review.
- Machine translated reviews that are unreadable or incomprehensible will not be accepted.
- No HTML tags and no excessive ALL CAPS, slang, formatting issues, repeated text or typographic symbols.
- Use the correct alphabet for the language in which you are writing. Do not transliterate into another alphabet.

911uk.com reserves the right to remove a review or management response at any time, for any reason. The reviews posted on 911uk.com are individual and highly subjective opinions. The opinions expressed in reviews are those of 911uk.com. 911uk.com does not endorse any of the opinions expressed by reviewers or in any responses. In accordance with our Privacy Policy, 911uk.com does not release anyone's personal contact information.

Fake reviews

Very rarely, we will encounter a review that violates our review guidelines. If we detect a fake review, we remove the review(s) from the site and take steps to ensure that site users are aware (we may post a message on the site) of what has been done by the offending business, alerting our users that we have found a fake review.


Good, bad and ugly reviews of your Porsche experiences

In line with the Review guidelines as above, a business has a right to respond to your review, whether good, bad or ugly. Firstly it's simply a matter of balance. We often I've heard a 'horror' story about a dealer only to later talk to the dealer/trader discussed and find that there are considerably different views on what actually took place.

There are also bad customers out there as well as bad dealers. Some people expect too much and misrepresent the facts in their favour, therefore in line with site posting and review rules the site reserves the right to remove your review.

Verify the 'facts' as presented

Please ensure you can verify the facts as presented in any review and be aware that any dispute argued out in public must be in line with the site posting rules. If we're asked to remove comments by a company and we consider them potentially libelous then we will take them off the site. That then leaves you open to litigation, not us.

Resolving Disputes

Disputes are best dealt with in the real world through normal channels. Doing it online merely opens a can of worms for the person posting the message, for 911uk and for the business being discussed. We've no desire to become embroiled in disputes and start providing transcripts of threads to solicitors (yes, it happens).

You may not realise it but you risk opening yourself up to accusations of libel too, if too often emotions creeps into messages and people end up stepping over the factual line, putting themselves in a position where they could invite a legal challenge. We have taken legal advice on how the courts treat libel and defamation online though, and feel that we probably let as much as we're safe to do slide through.

Freedom of speech does not condone defamation, it is that simple, but remember the following.

• Every keystroke matters; they are public, permanent and some can be costly.
• Never post when you are angry.
• Never send emails or text messages when you are upset, wait 24 hours.
• Writing a negative review can be acceptable, however it doesn’t and should not have to be mean, always choose your words wisely. Constructive criticism can actually help businesses.

Exceptions

1. An exception to the libel and defamation rules is when this applies to cars that have a car fraud/cloned car/hidden crash/damage/repair history, where a seller or any variant is passing off a car that is not as described. In such instances you are free to discuss the REAL FACTS. However the real facts must be presented to 911uk by email in order for the site to validate the information.

2. Discussing the real facts of your experience but in order to do this then you must present user '911uk' or to admin@911uk.com the real facts through email correspondence so that when these facts are quoted, so there is no debate to are the real facts.

911uk is here to help, but in order to do this, you need to stay within the law.

These posting rules are in addition to our Registration Rules and Terms & Conditions.

___________________________________________________________

The following is repeated to remind Traders of the site rules.

NOTICE TO ALL TRADERS

"Not suitable/safe for work (NSFW) is Internet slang or shorthand. Typically, the NSFW tag is used in e-mail, videos, and on interactive discussion areas (such as Internet forums, blogs, or community websites) to mark URLs or hyperlinks which contain material such as nudity, violence, pornography or profanity, which the viewer may not want to be seen accessing in a public or formal setting such as at work.

Determining a site to be NSFW is invariably subjective, and poses challenges for academics who study sexuality. The difficulty in identifying such content objectively has led to the creation of online tools to help individuals to identify NSFW content:

NSFW has particular relevance for individuals making personal use of the Internet at workplaces or schools which have policies prohibiting (even inadvertent) access to sexually provocative content. Companies and schools frequently adopt such policies because they regard the presence of sexual content as a misuse of company property (or education resources) and, potentially, a violation of sexual harassment policy"


there are NSFW threads in the members lounge, as long as they are suitably labelled, respectful of other members, not in breach of site rules and only within the members lounge then these such postings are allowable.

If you're wondering how to identify NSFW v Porn, as someone once said, you'll know what porn is as soon as you see it, after that it's most likely NSFW.

Forum Code of Conduct

The forum is a place to share info and tips with others and discuss all things Porsche. We hope you'll enjoy it, but ask you to remember it's a broad church with many different types of people. Follow these basic rules to make it a good place to be.

Please be nice to all 911uk Users

There's no such thing as a stupid question and, even if you disagree, courtesy helps. That’s the forum ethos. Remember, the prime aim is to help provide info and resources. If you don’t like someone, their situation, their question or feel they’re intruding on ‘your board’ then please bite the bullet and think of the bigger issue. This forum should continue to be the place where consumers can collect together and fight back. Our job is to help keep it that way.

Please be sensitive

This may be a web forum, but you're still talking to other human beings. Repeatedly or harshly saying someone's wrong, especially on the forum can lead to upset. Please think twice before posting judgemental comments.

Respect other users.

Set the tone for online conversations by being polite, open and respectful. It is not expected that you will agree with other users at all times but it is expected that you write your comments in a respectful. Any abusive, offensive or inflammatory posts or any comments which personally attack any individual will not be tolerated and will be removed.

No nudity, sexually explicit content, Provocative, inflammatory, unsettling, or suggestive posts

We welcome a diverse audience. We don't want to create a bad experience for someone that might stumble across explicit images, so some lascivious or sexualised posts are not allowed. This includes Mature content may include suggestive, inflammatory, unsettling, or provocative stories, and images, as well as scantily-clad women or men.

We forbid bullying, harassment and threatening language

We face the rising threat from extreme right wing groups that use the alternative right (alt-right) political movements and media outlets whom share an ideology based on intense hostility to minorities, ethnic and religious groups. All alt-right organisations across any spectrum of the media opposes our fundamental values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and respect and tolerance for different faiths and beliefs, any such content is in breach of site rules.

We encourage debate but we ask you not to quote web-sources which falls into the category of False, Misleading, Politically Biased, Alt-right, Hate News, Junk Science, Clickbait, and/or Satirical “News” Sources, such as Breitbart News.

Be responsive and participate.

Make an effort to share what you know and to interact with your peers. The site encourages you to actively participate in the debate, pose questions and help each other.

Good sharing means posting content which brings value to the community. Content which opens up a discussion, shares something new and unique, or has a deeper story to tell beyond the image itself is content that generally brings value. Ask yourself first: is this something I would be interested in seeing on 911uk if someone else posted it?

Don't feed the trolls

Sadly the web has a habit of throwing up a very small but vocal number of trolls, people who are nasty or contrary just to get a rise out of you. If someone's doing this, simply don't reply, just report it to a moderator or on email to admin@911uk.com. If you get involved and fling mud back, you risk being barred from using the forum too.

All info is the opinion of posters

It’s not our view. We have an amazing forum with a huge wealth of helpful info. Yet remember it's open to all, and sometimes messages are posted that are misleading or downright wrong. Most users are helpful but there are always a few bad apples. Don't rely on information being accurate or complete. If you do, it's at your own risk. Please do your own research before acting.

We can be liable for what you post.

When you post something, not only are you liable for what you say, but we can become liable too as the host. So it's not a case of posting what you like, and we can moderate posts if needed. Of course, our aim is to ensure there is legitimate information about your Porsche experience and fighting for consumer rights stays.

Posting is a privilege, not a right.

This is a privately-owned site. Posting is a privilege, not a right. Any inappropriate posts or any issues that take up a disproportionate amount of resources or make it a worse place to be will be stopped at our discretion - with or without explanation. No one pays to use this site; when there are issues, we may have to pay to resolve them. Sometimes we need to prioritise spending on the site, other issues or better resources.

No posts violate our terms of service
These are the 911uk Site Rules which may be changed or amended at any time.

These guidelines are here to give you a legitimate expectation of how the forum runs, but they don't bind us.

Together, we must:
– Apply these principles in everything we do;
– Uphold the Forum’s principles in any initiative we engage in;
– Protect the Forum’s reputation and that of the Forum’s Members, Partners and constituents.
