Read This Before Posting A "For Sale" Classified Ad

This classified area is intended for use by forum members who want to sell an item through the forum to another forum member. We will actively monitor new posts in Classified Boards for such use and compliance with the Classified Requirements and Restrictions.

The purpose of the For Sale board is Member to Member interactions/transactions. Anything posted in a Classified Ad in this board that is linked to or found to be on another sale site, such as eBay, Craigslist, ETSY or whatever, will be a violation of this Board restrictions and the listing will be moved to Auction Talk (the Forum Board created to describe, make note of or identify items for sale on those sites).

And, items listed that are being sold from production (can be bought in quantities of 1 or more at any time) or can be produced upon request (unlimited item reproduction) will be moved to either Off Topic or, if the vendor is proven to be a reliable manufacturer of the item, moved to Vendor Services.

The purpose of this Board is for a member to sell an item to any other member. Such a listing would have a title like this:

For Salea nice telephone is being offered for sale

When posting an item in this board, it is REQUIRED that the topic "title" start with the nature of your posting so that when the post shows up in another member's list of "unread posts since last visit," the item is clearly states For Sale. This is to the benefit of the person creating the Classified listing.

It is also important to create a separate topic for each item you have in of the boards. Have 3 items? Then create 3 topics. Same applies to the other 3 Child Boards. Multiple items in one topic becomes a real headache to manage since members can no longer edit their posts that are more than 7 days old so a listing with more than one item requires a member to ask a Global Moderator to use their precious time to edit their listings – just common sense and courtesy to do one item per topic. There can be exceptions, multiple items per listing, but please find a Global Moderator willing to help you update your multiple item listing as item sell.

Finally, when your classified listing is complete (shipped to its new home), it is essential to reply one last time saying the item is gone, the classified listing is no longer active. This will allow a Global Moderator to move the topic to the "Old Classifieds" boards. This will not only let members know it is gone or found but will also allow the Moderators to keep the Classified Boards filled with only active listings.

Thank you, and enjoy!
