For Sale Section - READ FIRST before posting.

Post by maxxis »

The following rules apply to the For Sale Section

1: Mark your topic with [s] for sale and [w] for wanted and [t] for trade.

2: Sellers must include the following
- Product
- How old is the product
- Reason for selling
- Price
- Location

3: When selling CPUs and GFX cards, please state what the socket or form factor is. For example a AMD 3200 can be either socket 754 or 939 and a 6600GT can be AGP or PCI-E.

4: If you DONT intend to purchase a product then stay out of it. No SPAM!

5: Bumping is only allowed once every 7 days. Price updates to happen in first post only. Same applies to sold items.

6: Communicate with your seller/buyer via PM.
It is not advised to post cell numbers and email addresses.

7: SPAM and excessive BUMPING will result in Thread being deleted

8: NO DEALERS. Second hand goods only.

9: Only PC related goods may be advertised.

10: Only REGULAR members with MORE than 20 posts are allowed to advertise items for sale.

Violation of these rules will result in topics being deleted and users being warned or accounts being suspended.

NO MORE SPAM WILL BE TOLERATED IN THE FOR SALE SECTION.

LIKE I SAID TIME AND TIME AGAIN: "IF YOU DONT INTEND TO PURCHASE A PRODUCT THEN STAY THE HELL OUT OF IT."

I dont want to see any more people posting things like "Dude. You are crazy with you price." or "Ill give you fifty bucks" Useless junk like that will not help the seller with the sale of his items.

From now on all SPAM will be deleted from posts. So dont think you are helping your post count by spamming.

Failure to obey the above will result in user branding.

First offence - A nuisance.
Second offence - A Mental Cripple.
Thrid offence - Two week ban.

I have changed the permissions on the For Sale forum due to the problems that we have been experiencing. From now on nobody except a moderator/admin will be about to reply to any post in this forum. All discussions about products been sold will be done via PM.

I have restored the For Sale section to its previous state where users can reply to topics.

Please note that is a gesture of good faith in the members of this forum.

I have updated the rules in the first post. Any violation will result in warnings issued to members and topics deleted. I'm not joking about this.

You forgot to lock this thread :P

EDIT: BTW, thanks for restoring the FS section. I hope it doesn't end up being a mess like before...

Changed minimum post count for using Classifieds to 20, in light of the recent change to the post count system.
