Thanks for clicking on this thread :thumb:

Please read on – it’s a combination of rules, polite requests and commonsense...

:arrow: In order to post in this section, you must be an authorised trader. If you are interested in becoming one, please send a pm to 'leepants' requesting permission. Please don't post otherwise - your advert will be deleted and you won't really help your cause by ignoring the rules.

:arrow: Items offered for sale must be yours, no links to other people’s stuff on other forums or 'listing on behalf of a mate' etc.

:arrow: Please post a full ad with a description of the item for sale, not just a link to another site. The seller must describe the item fully, and in doing so takes responsibility for the details being accurate, please don't copy and paste the content of an external link unless you are the seller. The ad must state a price that you'd be happy to accept for the item. A price with 'or offers' or something similar is fine, just asking for offers is not.

:arrow: Traders please use this section for trade ads. If the item is something you have used yourself and offered in the spirit of a private sale then you may post it in the private items/cars FS areas. If you're doing this please make that clear so that the mods/admin don’t assume it’s in the wrong place and move it :lol:

:arrow: No eBay links. At all.

:arrow: No chit chat in the threads. Feel free to ask questions about the item for sale if the ad isn’t clear, and to answer them if you’re the seller. Please only post if you are genuinely interested in buying the item for sale. Comments like 'ooh that's nice' etc (however well intentioned) will get binned on sight.

:arrow: In case people didn't understand that last bit, I'll just repeat it: No chit chat in the threads. Feel free to ask questions about the item for sale if the ad isn’t clear, and to answer them if you’re the seller. Please only post if you are genuinely interested in buying the item for sale. Comments like 'ooh that's nice' etc (however well intentioned) will get binned on sight. Sorry to be repetitive but believe me binning the same inane and irrelevant comments every time we visit gets a bit repetitive too...

:arrow: No comments on prices or other thread crapping. Sellers are free to set the price they think is reasonable; the market will decide whether or not they got it right :idea:

:arrow: No bumping. Updating prices or adding info (within reason!) is fine. Gratuitous bumping, ‘still for sale’, ‘all PMs replied to’ or any other ruse for getting the thread to the top will just get binned on sight without warning or explanation. Repeats will get the thread either pruned back and locked, or binned altogether. Be warned that this rule will be rigidly enforced so please don't try to bend it and then complain to the mods after the event!

:arrow: Please help us keep the place tidy and avoid wasting everyone’s time by marking your item as sold or no longer for sale when it’s off the market. The best way to do this is to edit the thread title to ‘SOLD’ (to do this, you edit the first post), and also post it in the thread, this will move it to the top and draw our attention to it so we can remove it.

:arrow: Lastly, please be cautious when purchasing items for sale advertised here or anywhere else. The use of this forum to advertise items for sale does not give or imply any guarantee by the forum, its administrators or moderators, as to the trustworthiness of the seller or the suitability of the item for its intended use. The forum is only a medium for advertisement; the forum, its administrators and moderators accept no liability for any loss or damage arising from the advertisement of an item for sale or any subsequent transaction.

Thanks for reading :D
