Motorcycling Victoria Social Media Policy
1. Naming of the discipline’s Facebook page:
Names of each page will be kept consistent, where each will start simply with ‘MV’, which basically means as soon as someone types in MV in the search bar all the options of each discipline will appear for selection.
MV Classic Motocross
MV Dirt Track
MV Historic Road Race
MV Road Race
2. The photo of your discipline’s Facebook page:
The official photo of your discipline page will be Motorcycling Victoria’s official logo, with its official blue ‘V’ against a white background. Unless otherwise requested and approved by the MV Board.
3. Administrators of Facebook pages
Motorcycling Victoria office will (with permission) assign all committee members with access to manage the Facebook page and provide everyone with updates, sport and event promotion, last minute notifications, general information, etc.
There must at all times be 2 administrators from MV office, with no exemptions. The MV office will only post as directed by management for the Board and in consultation with the Managment Committee.
At no time shall a discipline administrator add or remove any other administrator for any reason without approval from MV.
Generally most information for events should be sent to the MV office before being published anywhere else. For example, all Supp Regs & Entry Forms need to be sent in for approval and once approved are then released on MV’s website at the time of permitting.
Content relating to Event promotion, Press Releases, news stories, Rider Lists, Final Instructions are managed and promoted by the Management Committee in line the MA Social Media Policy and once approved by MV office.
If content is required to be approved or posted over the weekend, the MV office are on call from 7am – 10am every weekend.
Photos, videos and similar can be loaded directly, however a structure should be followed for consistency where possible. This will be handled in an ongoing basis as needed.
Quick responses to questions (comments) that really only relate to a few people rather than the wider community can be answered on the spot where appropriate, provided accurate information is used.
Any content deemed inappropriate or inaccurate by the MV office will be removed, then discussed with the discipline for a more suitable response where needed.
5. Event Pages
Event pages can be created by the discipline administrators, after Supp Regs have been approved and sent to the MV office for posting on the website.
Disciplines can then add information relative to that event on its event page such as final instructions, photos, videos, etc.
NB: This is a working document that will be altered to meet the needs of the Policy as required in the future. Any changes to the Policy will be highlighted and forwarded to all Administrator.
