What is MCF?

What benefits do i get from a higher ranking

Can I add a standard signature to my posts?

Yes you can. Simply do the following :
1) mouse-over your username on the top right hand corner
2) click on "settings"

3) click on the "signature" tab

Why is my signature removed?

Why is my post deleted?

If your post has been deleted, if could be because it has violated some forum guidelines.

What do I do if I lost my username and/or password?

Can I post my used items for sale?

If you are a direct owner and have used items for sale, you can post your items at our Marketplace section. Please read the Ad Posting Guidelines before posting your items.

Is there any a charge or fee payable to post items at Marketplace?

There will not be any charges or fee involved for posting of used items if you are a direct owner. It is a special privilege for all our members. However, if you are posting your items for commercial purposes, you are required to sign up a Merchant Account.

I am a merchant. How can I advertise my products/services to mycarforum members?

To advertise your products/services, you will have to sign up to be a sponsor, else your posts will be deleted, and your account banned. How to become a sponsor.
Alternatively, you can advertise your products/services in the Market place section. To advertise, please contact us.

I would like to organize a group buy in MCF. How should I go about doing it?

Group buys are only allowed to be conducted by forum sponsors. How to become a sponsor

How do I insert images into my posting?

There are 2 ways to insert images. The 1st way is to link it to an image hosted on another website. The 2nd way is to attach the file into MyCarForum from your computer.

The below screenshots shows you where the buttons are.

How can I view new posts since my last visit?

There are 2 very useful buttons in Mycarforum that will be beneficial to frequent users. They will allow you to find out what are the new posts since your last visit, as well as to find out if anyone has replied to your posts.

How does the warning system work?

Members that violate the forum rules will get a warning. This warning is symbolised by a yellow card. Once 3 yellow cards are accumulated, an automatic ban will be imposed on the member. However, for serious violations of forum rules, an immediate ban may be issued.

I’ve just gotten a yellow warning card how long will it stay?

Warnings will expire 6 months from the date of issue of the most recent one.
eg, if you get a yellow card in Jan, and another in Mar, both the yellow cards will only expire in Sept.
Bans are permanent.

I see some cars on the road with MyCarForum ID stickers. Where can I get one?

The MCF ID Sticker is the offline way of identifying fellow MCF members on the road. Stickers cost $12 each, and they will be mailed to you after payment is made. Payment is done via credit card here.

I have seen a few discussions on MCF mega meetups. Is there a fixed day of the year for mega meetups?

There is currently no fixed day of the year for MCF mega meetups. However, for latest meet-up activities in the forums, you can keep yourself updated in the Meetups folder.

I've got a question about email notifications.

Before the recent MCF forum "renovation", I used to receive email notifications if someone replies to a post I put up in any thread (whether or not it's started by me).

But now, I don't get them. I tried going through "my controls" and looking for settings that'll turn that on, but don't seem to have any. I checked everything in "Email Settings", but it doesn't have the required effect.

Is that function still available?

Hi,

Try going to "My Controls" > "Email Settings".
Tick "Enable 'Email Notification' by default?".

This way, you will receive emails whenever someone replies to a post you put up in any thread (whether or not it's started by you).

I would advise you to choose "delayed email notification" to prevent your mailbox from being flooded.

I got the email notifications to work. Thanks!

However, the emails I used to get on the old MCF forums were notifications when people reply to MY post. The emails notifications I get now are notifying me of people's replies to the thread - not just to me. I want to only receive email notifications when people respond to MY replies, not notify me whenever there's any reply to the thread.

Can't seem to find an option for this. It used to be the main reason I visit MCF, but now i cannot keep track of my posts.

Solution? Thanks so much in advance! :)
