    Sell or Swap Rules

    Even though we really never have problems, there are some basic rules you should follow when posting items for sale in the Sell or Swap forum.
    It's part of keep the sale forums usable.

    1. Be clear in your thread title. Tell us if you are selling a part or looking for a part. (ie. WTB= "Wanting to Buy", WTT= "Wanting To Trade" )
    2. Be descriptive in your post. Take lots of pictures (if possible). Most importantly, post a price! Nothing more frustrating then having a part up for sale that you want to buy and the poster left no price.
    3. Advise how to get in touch with you. If you don't visit the forum very often, leave an email address.
    4. When you have finally sold your part, edit the title with the word: SOLD to let everyone know that you have done so! Also, please edit your original post to reflect the status of the item for sale. (This goes for price changes as well)
    5. After you have completed a transaction with another member, leave feedback for them! How to leave
      feedback for a buyer/seller
      .
    6. Do not hijack sell or swap threads to indicate your unhappiness with a price, or that yours is cheaper/better. If you aren't going to buy it, don't bother!


    Thanks all!

    Bumping this because apparently lately some people have forgotten the rules, especially this one:

    Do not hijack sell or swap threads to indicate your unhappiness with a price. If you aren't going to buy it, don't bother!
    If you start posting about how "I could get that cheaper on Ebay" or "That's too much!" you will get a warning or an infraction if its habitual.

    The Buy/Sell section is for people to sell their stuff....not for a discussion on what should be charged. If someone is charging too much, quite simply they most likely won't sell it. If you absolutely feel the need to share what you think a fair price is, PM the seller. Nothing is worse then someone crapping on a thread when you are trying to sell something.

    Its one thing to say "WOW! Awesome price! Good luck!". I see that as a free bump, which is ok with the staff (as long as its also ok with the thread starter). Basically, respect their thread.

    Capiche?
