CLASSIFIED RULES

1. List your location (State) either in the ad, or in your profile.



2. Any ad, whether to buy, sell, or trade, requires a valid email address in your profile; not just in the text of the ad.



3. No links to auctions.



4. Please title the post either WTT, WTB, or WTS. If you have an item for sale, that item needs to have a price.



5. We prefer that we keep offers private. We don't have many problems with people making public offers on the forum; but it is probably best to take it to PM or EMAIL. Otherwise it has a tendency to turn into a de-facto auction. Either that, or it clutters the ad.



6. In a free market a seller can ask whatever amount they want for their item. If you feel their price is out of line, feel free not to buy it.



7. There is no need to post in someone's ad unless you are setting up a deal with the seller, making an offer, or have genuine questions about the item for sale. This will help eliminate potential clutter.



8. Negative posts in a person's ad will be subject to editing or deletion.



9. We prefer clean, uncluttered ads.



10. Items that are no longer available, whether sold, traded, or withdrawn, should have "*SOLD*" at the beginning of the item title. Leave your ad intact after the item is sold. Mark the beginning of the title "*SOLD*" but leave the remainder of the title, item description, and price unchanged so that it may be used for reference purposes. Do not bump the thread to the top by creating a new post.
NOTE: To edit the title to add SOLD, click on Edit, then click on Go Advanced, in Advanced Edit you can edit the title.


11. If you wish to have a thread deleted by a moderator, contact one of us and we will discuss it.



12. After you post your ad, you may only bump it (TTT, BTT, etc.) ONCE a day. Obviously you may answer any questions in the thread as needed. Only one post for the same item is allowed, use the edit button to make changes instead of making a duplicate post.



13. Members must have a minimum of 30 posts to place something in the 'For Sale' forum, excluding sponsors.



14. Please abide by these rules so we don't have any problems.



15. Failure to adhere to these rules will be cause for warning from your moderators and/or administrators. In addition, failure to comply may be considered grounds for expulsion from this site.



16. If anyone has any questions or concerns about these rules, or has concerns about the content of any post, certainly feel free to PM a moderator directly with those questions/concerns.

Please note the revision to rule number 10. Sold items should no longer be bumped to the top with a sold posting.
