Default Where Does My Thread Belong?

Alot of people wonder why the moderators move posts around and whatnot, and to give you some idea of why (and hopefully give you an idea of where things should belong in the first place) I offer to you a wordy rundown of the kind of things that belong (or don't) in a certain forum. Feel free to ask me questions if you have them .

NASIOC General Forums
General Community
This forum is for general board questions, board announcements, and non-model specific *Subaru Only* chat. No posts about "will a WRX beat ______", "I have a tranny problem", or "I spotted you on South Alameda Street" posts here. Technical questions go into the appropriate technical forums, area-specific (ie: meet in Chicago) belong in regional/chapter forums, and street racing/will my car beat a _______ posts belong in Off-Topic. Please no posts about "I just got my WRX" here- that's why we have a NASIOC Subaru Models area . No "for-sale" ads or the like belong here- they all go in the respective Classifieds forums. Basically, not much will end up here .

Newbies & FAQs
This forum is reserved for topics like "How do I post a photo" or questions about the board in general, like "how many posts until I am a Specialist?" It is also a storehouse for this kind of information, so please utilize the search function. It is the one place where you should feel safe to post even the most basic questions. They will be answered or moved to the appropriate forum.

Interior & Exterior Modification & Care
This forum is for questions, thoughts, ideas, and information sharing about the looks of your vehicle. Please respect other's rights to do something visually with their car you don't happen to agree with. If you have nothing constructive to add, do not bother posting your disdain and move on. Questions related to lowering of the suspension belong in the Suspension, Brakes, Tires, Rims forum, as do questions about wheel/tire combos like "will 18's fit with 225/45 series tires." That forum is also *full* of information, and a search is highly recommended before posting.

Car Audio, Video, & Security
This forum is for discussion of car audio, ICE, alarm systems, and the like. No for-sale ads permitted.

Motorsports
This forum is for all things motorsports- from chat about the WRC and Rallyx to discussions of equipment and techniques. You'll find all that here.

Proven Power Bragging
This forum is to brag about your track times or dyno numbers. Street racing posts are NOT allowed here, only in Off Topic.

Member's Car Gallery
This forum is for owner's to post pictures of their cars and mods for all to see.

News & Rumors
This forum is for news and/or rumors about upcoming things that are Subaru-related (ie: chat about the STi coming to the USA). Please keep all non-Subaru rumor-related chat in the Off-Topic Forum (it's a Subaru board after all, right? ).

Warranty Issues & SOA Problems
This forum is to discuss problems with your Subaru, new or old that are covered under the warranty from SOA. Also found here is talk about warranty claims and denial of warranty claims, and people seeking advice about claims from other enthusiasts.

NASIOC Technical
These forums are *TECHNICAL* in nature. Please no chatting about your 1/4 mile time or pictures of your car, and definitely no "for-sale" items belong here. These forums are not here to be used as a substitute for the General forums, and due to the depth of information contained in them, a search is *highly* recommended before posting. Most questions you have will have been covered several times already.

Normally Aspirated
This forum is for discussion of *technical* troubles with any Subaru that came from the factory Normally Aspirated. Please note that there are seperate forums for suspension, brake, tire, rim, and transmission issues- topics on those lines belong in their specific forums.

Factory Forced Induction
This forum is for discussion of *technical* troubles with any Subaru that came from the factory Turbocharged. Please note that there are seperate forums for suspension, brake, tire, rim, and transmission issues- topics on those lines belong in their specific forums.

Other Factory Turbo
This forum is for discussion of *technical* troubles with any Subaru that came from the factory Turbocharged. Please note that there are seperate forums for suspension, brake, tire, rim, and transmission issues- topics on those lines belong in their specific forums.

Aftermarket Forced Induction
This forum is for discussion of *technical* troubles with any Subaru that has been turbocharged in the aftermarket. Please note that there are seperate forums for suspension, brake, tire, rim, and transmission issues- topics on those lines belong in their specific forums.

Transmission (AT/MT) & Driveline
This forum is for *technical* chat on troubles with, upgrades of, or questions on the transmission of your vehicle.

Brakes & Suspension
This forum is for *technical* chat or questions on the dirty bits of the car- suspension issues/questions, brake problems or upgrades, and the like.

Tires & Wheels
This forum is for *technical* chat or questions on the wheels and tires.

Subaru Conversions
This forum is for *technical* chat or questions on conversions. Want to go from FWD to AWD, or see if the RS muffler will fit your OBS? This is your forum.

Service & Maintenance
General questions about routine upkeep of your vehicle may be found here. Please consult your owner's manual before asking about items like fluid capacites and bulb numbers, as these are all covered there.

NASIOC Classifieds
All items for sale belong in the Classifieds. Ads posted elsewhere will be moved or deleted, no questions asked.

Private 'For Sale' Classifieds
All items for sale by private individuals should be placed here. No ads from vendors belong here, unless they are selling something that belongs to them (ie: not selling as a vendor ). No ads for "I want to buy _________" belong here as there is a seperate section for such requests. Things sold here can be Subaru-related or non-Subaru related... sell your house here if you would like .

Vendor 'For Sale' Classifieds
This section is for registered vendors to post ads for their wares. You *must* register as a Vendor with Nick or Alex before being able to start a new thread here.

Private 'Wanted' Classifieds
This section is reserved for anyone to post an ad for something they would like to buy. It can be Subaru or non-Subaru related.

NASIOC Reviews
This forum is for the review of parts, vendors, and dealerships *only*. Please do not post for sale ads here or questions like "Where is _______ vendor." Keep things professional and factual- you cannot honestly review a vendor or product if you don't have it or have not done business with them.

Car Parts
This forum is to review parts you have bought and installed on your vehicle. Please no posts asking "how do you like _______" as this is not what the forum was intended for.

Vendors
This forum is to review vendors only, not ask which vendors have a certain product in stock. Do not attempt to review a vendor if you have not transacted any business with them in the past, and please remain professional.

Dealerships
This section is to reveiw dealerships- be it sales or service or both. Again, please remain professional and to the point. Posting "they pissed me off" is not constructive.

Chapters and Regional Forums
These sections are for area-specific questions and to help organize meets. Also used for general banter amongst the local regions.

NASIOC Subaru Models
Impreza Forum
Information on all things Impreza-specific should go here.

Legacy Forum
Information on all things Legacy-specific should go here.

Forester Forum
Information on all things Forester-specific should go here.

Baja Forum
Information on all things Baja-specific should go here.

Outback Forum

'Old School' Subaru Forum
Information on all older Subarus not specifically discussed elsewhere.

Off-Topic
This is the dumping ground for all things that have no other home or for non-Subaru related items (ie: the EVO is coming, the EVo is coming! ). Please bear in mind that, while the rules are more relaxed in Off-Topic, they are not gone. Expect to have subjects that are inappropriate for a public forum to be heavily moderated and/or deleted.
