Code of Conduct (rules) for posting in the Exchange
Sellers -- Be 100% sure that you want to sell the item and are satisfied with the selling price. If you back out of a deal AFTER you've agreed to sell it to a particular buyer, your account MAY BE LOCKED!
Buyers -- Be 100% sure that you can financially afford to purchase an item before offering to do so. If you back out of a deal AFTER you've agreed to buy from a particular seller, your account MAY BE LOCKED!
Equipment Exchange Rules
You must have 50 posts and be an active member of the community to list ads in the Equipment Exchange. Any threads started by a person with less than 50 posts will be deleted and a warning sent. If the person posts again then the account will be locked.
All ads should be placed in the appropriate forum.
All items MUST be priced!
You MUST have valid contact information to sell here, and provide it to Staff on request.
You MUST have both your IM and e-mail turned on to sell here.
No auctions (or links to auction sites), unless specifically authorized by 68forums.com. Accepting higher than stated prices for an item is considered 'taking bids' and is not allowed. If receiving a higher than advertised price is important to you, list your item on an auction site. Moreover, "Or Best Offer" is understood on the EE to mean best offer up to the listing price, not best offer above the listing price.
No links to other commercial sites except by 68forums.com Dealers and Industry Partners.
Just to be clear: There will be no commercial for sale ads allowed unless you are a site sponsor/industry partner. If you want to become an industry partner please contact a moderator. If you don't want to become a site sponsor and want to advertise your business on a website, please feel free to create your own website.
Absolutely no stomping on other peoples' posts! Do not remark in any way that would negatively impact the sale of someone’s merchandise. This can result in your account being locked.
No posting of anything illegal.
Once your item is sold or traded, do NOT delete the original title, ad text, or asking price. Leaving the ad in place after a sale is protection for both the buyer and seller, and also acts as a price reference for others. Disregarding this rule may result in a suspension of your account. Edit the title and text of the ad to mark it "SOLD" or "TRADED". Do NOT post a new reply!
The seller CANNOT reply to their own ad within 72 hours of anyone's post (including their own) for any reason. The 72-hour countdown for the seller restarts with each new reply to the ad by ANYONE.
All changes/updates should be done with the edit feature to the original ad, not by adding another response.
Sellers -- If 72 hours have not passed since the last post by anyone, all questions should be addressed by IM, e-mail, or edit ONLY!
Don’t use a secondary "shill" account to ask a phony question or post any other messages, thus BTTing your own ad. This will result in BOTH accounts being locked!
Sellers -- Don’t rewrite an ad again in order to get it back on page 1.
Sellers -- Do not post items for sale that you do not have in your possession. Also, do not list items for sale unless you are 100% positive that you wish to sell them -- no "testing the waters" to gauge buyer interest or taking pre-orders.
If you break any of these rules, your ad may be removed or locked WITHOUT any notice!
These for sale forums operate on honesty and integrity. If you cannot handle deals in an appropriate manner, don't post here! If you break our trust, it will be noted in our feedback forum -- selling rights may be removed and/or your account here will be subject to termination.
All items listed for sale must be described in an honest fashion! Do not attempt to represent replica (AirSoft, etc.) parts/products or cheap knockoffs as if they were Name Brand/OEM equipment! Do not knowingly sell defective products without acknowledging the defect. You must handle your transactions in a timely fashion. If you can't, don't buy it or sell it. And lastly, please maintain a reasonable level of civility. If a problem arises, don't immediately fly off the handle with threats & insults.
By posting in the forums, you agree to these terms.
