How to Post Events


Want to draw more people to your events? What if you could do so for free?

At MotionU, we love cars, motorcycles, and trucks of all shapes and sizes, and we want to see more people at events held for people who love cars, motorcycles, and trucks. That’s why we built MotionU—so that you, the member, could easily post your events to the entire wheeled-vehicle community and have them appear online at absolutely no cost.

The only thing we ask of you is that you stay within our guidelines. To learn about those guidelines, you’ve come to the right place.

Members May Freely Post Events

To post events, you must be a member! There’s no charge to become a member, but when you become a member and post your authenticated events, you are differentiating yourself from the unfriendly spammers, robots, and Internet spiders. Creating a membership is only the first layer of protection, but becoming a member also allows you to:


  • Post events for free
  • Create alerts for events that will interest you
  • Advertise your company, events, or website (optional - charges would apply)
  • Help us curate the system by flagging events that are not valid

What are Valid Events for MotionU?


Events you may want to share and post are generally those that educate or entertain. Any event you post must have obvious ties to the wheeled-vehicle community (meaning it involve cars, trucks, motorcycles, clubs, races or tracks, OEMs, parts, service, mechanical, collision, paint, associations/organizations, roads, insurance or government entities that are clearly involved in the overall automotive or wheeled-vehicle industries).

Equally, as the largest site in the world for automotive and wheeled-vehicle events, we review every event before it is posted. Yes, you read that right. Every event. While one or two might slip through the cracks, we will do our best to remove all non-events, advertisements, spam, or other unrelated content before it reaches you, the MotionU user. It’s a simple premise: This is a clean site, and we will do our best to keep it that way.

Some of the things that we will not allow to be posted in events are:


  • Advertisements that are posted as events
  • Graphic images that do not meet the Privacy Policy
  • Inappropriate content of any type
  • Vulgarity, hate speech, or other inappropriate slang
  • Inappropriate websites
  • Non-automotive or wheeled-vehicle events
  • Spam
  • Anything else deemed "unnecessary" or "inappropriate" by MotionU staff


If you see an event within MotionU that you feel should not be posted there or is in some way inappropriate, please flag the event and we will give the event attention as quickly as possible.

If a member is found to be consistently posting events that violate what is considered to be relevant to the MotionU community, we will take appropriate action, such as suspending that member’s account permanently.

Avoiding Duplicate Events

If you are posting events for your company or organization, please only post once for each event. If you have a multi-day event and you would prefer to break the event down into individual days (Example: "Club Cruise: Day 1 of 2"), that is perfectly fine as long as there is not a date overlap.

Duplicate events that are not acceptable are:


  • Posting more than one of the same event
  • Posting the same event using multiple user names
  • Posting the same event many times by different members


Posting duplicate events actually decreases the likelihood that people will attend your event, and it diminishes the public opinion of the organization you represent, as well as the MotionU name. If we do find a member who is posting duplicate events with the intent to monopolize a page, we will consider the person a spammer, delete all events he or she has posted and consider suspending the account.

Despite our best efforts, though, duplicate event postings will happen, and we will not always be able to clean or police accidental duplicates. Some events are posted early in the year by our staff or well-meaning members, but event dates change and dual postings are inevitable. Our policy is that it is better to have too many of the same event posted (so long as they are accurate!) than none at all. If you are posting updated notifications, either edit the original or delete the old/cancelled event as a courtesy to others. Legitimate members should only post a legitimate event one (1) time.

Advertising Vs. Event Posting

If you really want to maximize promotion for your event, post the event for free first and then purchase an inexpensive MotionU advertisement. All MotionU advertisements display for a week at a time (from Wednesday at 12 a.m. to the following Tuesday at 11:59 p.m.), which allows you to make your event stand out whenever and wherever you want it to be seen.

Our advertisements allow you to place events or products geographically in the market area(s) when and where you want exposure. Want to learn more? See how our ads work here: (HOW TO PURCHASE ADS).

Certified Event Manager Status – Gold Seal – Immediate Posting

If you want your ad to receive the MotionU Gold Seal, become a Certified Event Manager (CEM). Becoming a CEM is currently free, and allows you to stand out and post "certified" events for your organization.

Each CEM’s event will be branded with a gold seal to indicate that it is from an approved CEM member. The seal indicates to visitors that your posting is "the official posting." After receiving CEM approval, your events will post and be available for edit immediately without review or delay. If your organization has a rainout, instantly change the old time "ABC Classic CAR is ON ... Delayed Until 4:00" or communicate cancellations such as, "ABC Classic Car Event is RAINED OUT! Rescheduled for (new date and new event) ..." It’s always courteous to make sure your attendees and the whole world knows when things change, and the best way to do that is to become a CEM today!

Single Day Listings for Multi-Day Events

We’ve found that splitting multi-day events down into single events each day allows the poster to entice an audience with what is happening each individual day while still drawing attention to the overall multi-day event. In MotionU, there are many examples of "Multi-Day Events." This is not mandatory but we recommend you give it a try and let us know your feedback.

Here’s an example of a multi-day event posted as 3 single-day events:


  • Event 1: CAR Show at Downtown Coliseum, Day 1 of 3 – Mon., Aug. 3rd 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Event 2: CAR Show at Downtown Coliseum, Day 2 of 3 – Tues., Aug. 4th 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Event 3: CAR Show at Downtown Coliseum, Day 3 of 3 – Wed., Aug. 5th 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM


MotionU searches for events primarily by location, followed by start date and time. The most recent start date and time for an event in a certain location will appear first. In the above example, each event will display individually but still allow you to write information specific to the individual dates, as well as the event as a whole. This method informs users not only how many days are involved in the event, but also allows them to plan to attend day 2 or 3 if they can’t attend day 1.

Copying Events

If you have a recurring event (let’s say it’s once a month for 12 months), make it easy on yourself by using our simplified "Copy Event" Feature. First, post a single event into MotionU, making sure that what you are posting is accurate and that all information will apply to all other 19 events. Then, once you have submitted the event for approval, simply click the "Copy" button at the top of the screen, change any relevant information (most likely start/end date and possibly location), then post the next event for approval. Then continue the process until all events have been sent for approval.

You shouldn’t have to enter all your information every time. By using the "Copy" function wisely, you can post an entire year’s calendar of events within minutes. And, by listing each day of multiple-day events, you are keeping your attendees and invitees clearly informed and broadening your audience of people searching for an event.

MotionU Rights

MotionU reserves the right to post, not post, cancel, or remove any events or advertisements at our sole discretion and without explanation. We’ll be more than fair, but we reserve and claim the right to allow or disallow event postings, advertisements, or memberships. We may or may not share why we disallow an event, advertisement, or member.

Technology issues, servers, geo-politics, conflicts, member conduct, and a variety of other elements may affect whether we display an event or not. We strive to provide reasons for disallowing certain events, but there are no guarantees your event will run or be displayed.

In short, if you are the 99.8% of humanity that thinks the world can be a great place and people can do right by one another simply by being a good person both on the internet and in real life, you should be fine on MotionU.
