RULES!!! For Sale Forum. Read before posting

Rules for selling items and or replying to threads in this section:

1. YOU MUST BE A MEMBER FOR 60 DAYS BEFORE YOU SELL ANYTHING ON THIS FORUM.
This goes for trading items as well. No, we are not being harsh, or controlling, but this eliminates the spam, the "bots", and the thief. It protects everyone involved. Outside of the EXCEPTIONS below, this is non-negotiable. It is a rule set by the owners, and followed strictly on both the R1 and the R6 forums. Please follow it.

EXCEPTION:
Legit join dates from the R1-Forum are accepted. Understand that most of the R6-forum moderators do not visit the R1-forum very often. So if you are a member of the R1-forum then make it known in your for sale thread by posting up your join date and your username on the R1-forum.

2. Vendors (or people selling quantities of the same item) must first contact Forum Administration (members: SpidermanSS)to get information on being a paid advertiser before posting items for sale. Buying for the sole purpose of re-selling qualifies as being a vendor and requires sponsorship with the R6-forum.

3. No Ebay, Criagslist, or outside linking of for sale items.
If you have stuff in auction on Ebay, then post the link to your Ebay auction in the Ebay Auction Link Section. We will not have the items placed here also, making our members compete with the world to sell something for a higher price. List your product here, try to sell it here, then take it to eBay.

4. There will be no "auction-style" selling here.
If you post an item for sale and it says anything like "I will take the highest offer" it will be removed. If you want to run an auction, take it to eBay.

5. Posts will be deleted at the discretion of the moderators.
There is a lot of tendency to post negative replies when someone lists an item for sale that others consider "overpriced". Negative comments will not be tolerated. To put it simply-If you don't have anything good to say; keep it to yourself.

6. Omission of information is also known as fraud.
Example:If you are selling a leather suit that has a 9 inch tear in it you need to disclose that information to the buyer. Do not tell the buyer that the suit has "light wear" only.
If its determined that you defraud a member by failing to disclose crucial facts about your items, your access to this section will be restricted and you may be banned from the forum.

7. Use this section at your own risk.
There are a lot of scams out there so take precautions in your business ventures. R6-FORUM WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSSES AS A RESULT OF USING THIS SECTION. As a suggestion: sellers should consider using delivery confirmation to avoid conflicts from buyers; saying they never received the products. Buyers, get to know the seller a little before you blindly send cash. If something doesn't seem right; it probably isn't. If something seems to good to be true; it probably is.

8. Respect fellow members
This section is a great place to make an extra buck and occasionally new friends. Please be respectful to your fellow members. Maybe try selling here to a member instead of eBay, maybe save them a buck or two. If you have any questions, problems or concerns feel free to contact any of the Marketplace section moderators.

9. PLEASE try to go back and mark SOLD when the item sells.
This will help eliminate the old threads coming back up, as well as help those looking for specific items.

10. Cross linking ads
Ads from other forums are NOT ALLOWED

11. Selling items for friends that are not members of the forum is NOT ALLOWED

12. Pictures are required. It's helps with confirming the condition of the item being sold so we don't have people getting their items purchased in another condition other than what was described. You must POST the pictures. If you are selling a motorcycle, multiple pictures from each angle are REQUIRED. If you are too lazy to take pictures of the bike YOU are trying to sell then don't bother posting the ad.

Lastly, don't forget the Buyer/Seller Feedback forum. Be sure to express a good or bad experience with your buyer or seller, and let others know what to expect. Also be sure to check there for a member if you are concerned BEFORE you buy.

EXCEPTIONS:
1. Legit Join Dates from the R1-Forum are accepted.
2. Special circumstances can be allowed, but you must contact a Moderator or Admin to be granted posting rights. ie: military, racers, etc
You must put "OK'd By (Mod's name)" In your description or the thread will be taken down.

PENALTIES
1. If you do not agree with the rules set forth, please do not use this forum.
2. If you cannot follow the rules set forth, your posts may be deleted, removed, or edited by the Moderator.
3. If you repeatedly do not follow the rules set forth, you will be banned from this section, or from the R6-Forum for any length of time from 1 day to permanently, at the discretion of the Moderator.

TIPS/HELP
1. Describe your item in the title.
2. Post a price, easy to find, not just lost in the paragraph of description.
3. Give ALL details. i.e color, size, year, make, model, etc
4. POST PICTURES
5. Put "FS" in the title of For Sale items, put "WTB" for items you Want To Buy.
6. List shipping, pick-up or delivery options for the buyer.
7. Be sure to add "SOLD" one the items are sold.

Re: RULES!!! For Sale Forum. Read before posting

Due to recent complaints of bad sales etc, I wanted to bump this thread.

BUYERS: You are responsible for ensuring that the seller is in compliance with the rules here before making a purchase. And you are also HIGHLY encouraged to make payment in some way utilizing a credit card or other means that provides you some form of fraud protection. For more expensive purchases, you may even wish to look into an escrow type service such as

SELLERS: You are to comply with the rules above. If your listing is not in compliance with the rules above, it WILL be removed. If you repost and are still not in compliance, you will be banned from this site. If you are found to have created another account on this Forum to login, we will report you to your internet service provider, under the grounds of fraudulent identity.

Not trying to make it impossible to buy/sell on this Forum, but allow for more secure transactions protecting the buyer and seller both.
