Re: BOARD RULES: Please Read Before Posting

More rules for you...

First and Foremost, Acadiaforum.net is not responsible for any transaction made on this forum. Buyer and Seller assumes any and all responsibility.

1. Commercial Sales
Supporting vendors pay for the considerable bandwidth charges on the Forum, making it free for the rest of us. In exchange, they get the privilege of using the Forum to market and promote their goods and services.

Forum members are welcome to sell any item they purchased for their own personal use. Anything else is considered to be a commercial sale.

Only supporting vendors can post Group Purchase threads.

2. Best Offers & Gauging Interest

The forum will permit "OBO" or "serious offers" in a sale thread where a price has been stipulated.

We will not permit threads where no price is stated, and asks for open offers. Low ball offers that are clearly ridiculous in nature, will be considered a violation of the forum rule pertaining to "Interference in a for sale". (See Rule #3)

Only forum vendors are permitted to gauge interest in their products.

**NOTE** Supporting vendors sometimes offer prices that are below that recommended by manufacturers, so we allow them to post threads without a price and to ask people to contact them by phone or PM for the price. We extend the same courtesy to our supporting dealers, even though in most cases it is advantegeous for them to post a price.

3: Interference in a For Sale
If you don’t like the price or item being offered in for sale thread, take it to e-mail or PMs. Better still, just move on to a thread that is offering something you like the price on.

If you post a criticism of the price or the quality of the item being offered, you will be in violation of Forum rules and subject to sanctions.

If you post your own for sale items to the for sale thread started by someone else, you also are in violation of Forum rules. Start your own thread, rather than jumping into the thread of someone else.

If your contribution to a for sale thread does not advance the sale, you are in the way.

Members are not permitted to "gauge interest," in their item for sale thread. Such threads will create an ebay type auction, and that is unacceptable. Sellers must create their thread with an asking price included.

4. Purchasing an item for sale

Posting an interest in a sale thread, or asking questions, does not subject the thread to being closed, nor, to the item being sold. An item will be consider sold, when the seller says it is, based on the simplicity of the sale.

The seller will determine who they want to sell their item/product to based on the expediency of payment, payment method, location, and overall ease of transaction. While some may feel that the first to commit to purchase in the thread would make it easy, it may not be for the seller. If another buyer lives nearby and can save the trouble of shipping, etc. the seller can move onto that buyer let's remember, it is his item/product for sale.

This will eliminate the confusion of "dibs," replies to a thread, PM's, e-mail and telephone promotions/discussions, which has caused nothing but confusion and frustration in the past.

When the seller's price is met, no higher offers can be accepted. If a seller negotiates a higher price with a member who did not win the item at his/her original asking price, the seller and offering member will subject their account to a permanent block.

5. No hijacking

Only replies related to the thread can be posted. If it is a for sale thread and you have the same item for sale, start your own thread.

Recommendations to aid in your sale

6. Using "WTB" "F/S" in the title

It's very helpful to start your thread title with either "F/S" or "WTB" to indicate if your thread is a For Sale thread, or a Want To Buy thread.

7. Pictures of your item(s) is highly encouraged.

As the old saying goes: "a picture is worth a 1,000 words."

8. Shipping and handling charges.

If possible, state how you will be shipping and how much you will charge. Most shipping companies will furnish an estimate based on dimensions of the box, the weight, origin and destination zip codes.

www.fedex.com
www.dhl.com

9. Be specific in your descriptions

Know your parts for sale before listing them in a thread. Your research and knowledge will help the buyer in making a decision to purchase.

10. Only one thread per item

If you created a post and it has moved onto the second or third page, you can simply "TTT" it rather than create a new thread. Abuse of smilies or "TTT," in your thread, will result in it being closed.

11. Thread/board Maintenance

The goal here is to have current, available items listed. Members are requested to delete threads where the item has sold. The listing may be saved to your hard drive for reference if desired. Any ads marked as sold may be deleted by a moderator immediately.
For items not sold, a 1 week warning may be posted by a moderator anytime after 60 days of inactivity. The thread is subject to deletion anytime after that.
