Our classifieds system is offered as a benefit of membership. We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum; i.e. aquaria-related. Members who have been site members for 15 days AND who have 15 posts may use the classifieds section. For reference this posting rule applies to any sub-forum within Buy/Sell/Trade.
When posting a new thread:
-Do NOT post your phone number, email address, mailing/physical address, or any other personally identifying information.
-Please include your city/state and price (if applicable).
-Do NOT post any items for sale that are not related to fishkeeping. This includes, but is not limited to: computers, phones, and other electronics. You may offer appropriate items for trade.
-DO NOT post links to craigslist, ebay, or other sites advertising a sale. This forum is only to be used by our members to sell, trade, or buy personally held items. Do not post ads for deals found elsewhere. If you want to advertise a good deal, this is not the forum to do so. Commercial sales are prohibited on this forum. If your company would like to become a forum sponsor, please visit here
- If you aren't willing to ship an item, please note in the thread that the item is for local pickup only.
-DO NOT 'bump' your post. Bumping is against the site rules in all forums. If you're not getting any responses, it's probably because you haven't listed enough information. You're welcome to add more info, but don't 'bump' it.
- Make sure to note that the item is sold/traded/purchased.
When replying to a thread in the classifieds:
-DO NOT post your phone number, email address, mailing/physical address, or any other personally identifying information.
-DO NOT post comments, suggestions, criticism, etc. If you have a question about the specific item for sale/trade, you are welcome to ask questions, but please do so only if you are interested in buying or trading.
-DO NOT post links to other websites in response to wanted threads. If somebody posts a wanted thread, they're asking our members for the item, not for a link to a website with something. You can certainly PM them and suggest things, but please do not do so on the thread.
-DO NOT ask somebody to ship something if they advertise local pickup only. There are probably reasons they do not want to ship, and that's their choice.
Ad expiration and removal:
Posts older than 90 days will be moved into the Archive subforum so that only active threads are available in the main forums. The Archive is not to be posted in.
Use this forum at your own risk... As with any online deal there is always the chance of fraud. All issues should be worked out between the buyer and seller before the transfer of money and goods. This site will NOT be held responsible for any losses that should occur as a result of a broken up sale.
Once you've completed your transaction, leaving feedback is a great way to share your experience. We have a forum specifically for this, located here.
Let everyone know how great your transaction was, how cool your new item is, or what a great experience you had.
Our complete list of community rules can be found here.
If any of the above rules are not followed, the thread or post will be removed, and appropriate action will be taken. This forum is designed to help our hobbyists on this site sell their unwanted or extra items. We ask that everyone help us by following these rules, so we can keep this added bonus to our site.
