Default Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I registered, but I can't post! What's the deal?

You should have gotten an email to validate your account. If you don't, check your spam inbox. Once validated, you are a "registered user". You can then post in general forums. There are forums in which you will need special privileges to post in, such as the For Sale, Want To Buy, Testing Waters, etc. Read the following FAQ for the Marketplace Forums: http://www.jdmcity.com/showthread.php?t=209.

I have x posts and registered for more than x days, but I cannot post new threads in the Marketplace Forums

The system is set to update user permissions every hour. Be patient and you will have access. In addition, thread postings in the Marketplace Forums are for vendors and users w/ 25+ posts and registered for more than 30 days only. Others can only reply to threads.

How can I change my screen name?

Sorry, you cannot change your screen name yourself after you have registered. The way this forum was scripted won't allow this feature. Please PM the administrator to change it for you.


How do I get the custom user title under my screen name?

Users get default user titles based on the number of posts they have. Once reached at a specific post count, their title changes over night. Here is the breakdown:

0+ posts = Newbie
20+ posts = JDM Fan
50+ posts = JDM Lover
100+ posts = JDM Soldier
500+ posts = JDM Knight
1000+ posts = JDM King
2000+ posts = choose custom title

*Moderators and administrator(s) are exempt from this user title system; they can choose their own user title

*Certain users are also exempt from this system as well, even when they don't have enough post counts

*User titles system is subject to change at any time


How do I report a post?

If you see a post that violates, threatens, or abusive of any kind, simply click on the icon of that one post. A report thread will be created within our "moderator's corner" to further assist you with the abusive post.

What is the font for JDMCITY.COM logo?

The font we have chosen for this website is called "ZEROES" font (often named ZEROES__.ttf). For any graphic designers out there, this font can be found almost anywhere online and download for free to use.

My Date/Time is Wrong

By default, JDMCITY is set for GMT -6 Central Time (US & Canada) timezone. This forum does not follow Daylight Savings Time--offset will be + or - 1 hour. Logged out users will see the time in Central Standard Time (CST). Logged in users will vary, depending on their setting in the Control Panel. To change your timezone (eg you live in California), go to Control Panel > Edit Options > and change your Time Zone accordingly.

You can post in them but 98% of the time it is just someone posting something useless like "wow sweet car" thats bad ass" crap like that. No need to bring up a old thread for stuff like that.

Just stay the coarse, be social within the threads, share info relevant to the thread you are posting on, keep watchful eye on the dates of the threads and I am 100% sure you'll hit the required 25.

Reason for this requirement is simple......we don't want this site to turn into a Craigslist. It is a social car forum that comes with the benefits of having all these for sale and event sections.
