Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Lionel Racing Forum, we are excited you are joining our community! We take pride in keeping our message boards respectful, pleasant and enjoyable for members of all ages. Please ensure you read the following guidelines before you start posting.

  1. Vulgar language is not permitted. This includes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory or otherwise inappropriate material throughout the forum. Any posts or threads found in violation of this rule will be deleted and the poster banned immediately and indefinitely.
  2. Do not post inappropriate pictures, links or images – this includes your personal profile picture. Any forum member doing so will be banned immediately and indefinitely.
  3. No racist, sexist, political or religious comments will be permitted.
  4. Trolling is not allowed. Do not post provocative, outrageous or pointless messages only to get a response from others. Repeat violators will be permanently banned.
  5. All posts should be courteous. Remain respectful of other users, moderators and administrators at all times.
  6. While the Lionel Racing Forum is active 24 hours a day – responses in the Ask Lionel Racing section will only receive answers Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m EST. Please also be aware questions will not be answered on holidays.
  7. We do not condone nor accept posts pertaining to illegal activities such as hacking, cracking, warez or spam.
  8. Multiple accounts per individual are not permitted. If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool in order to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator. Do not ever give out your password.
  9. If you have something to post and you’re not sure which board it belongs in – ask. Do not post it in more than one board. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
  10. In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions do take place, it is not an excuse to attack or insult other members of the community. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be banned.
  11. You do not have any extra chances within this forum. If a guideline is broken, a member will be permanently banned and will not be allowed access back to the forum. Lionel Racing appreciates constructive feedback – bashing and insulting Lionel Racing will not be tolerated.
  12. If you have a problem or a complaint, please direct it to the administrator and/or moderator, not to the boards. The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban offenders when necessary, with or without prior warning.
  13. Final and most important rule! Come and enjoy discussions with other race fans! Let’s be very clear – this forum is run by Lionel Racing and will NOT be a playground for others. Be an adult and you will be treated as such! Warnings are not a given so please be aware of your posts. Any rules listed above that are violated can result in a members permanent ban from the forum at the discretion of Lionel Racing.
