**** Classifieds Guidelines ****

When you are ready to post your ad, please remember to include the following information:



*** Basic Information ***



1) A valid e-mail. This is REQUIRED for posting an Ad in the Classifieds. Failure to provide a valid e-mail is grounds for locking your ad.



2) If you don't have your location filled out in your profile (City, State), your thread will be LOCKED. Once your profile has been updated to reflect a legitimate location then you may PM one of the moderators, with a link to the page, to have your thread unlocked.



3) A phone number is a good idea. While not required, it will help you with your sale, and it will help keep people honest. For example, a potential buyer will be more comfortable buying from someone whom he/she knows they can contact, vice someone that only exists via an e-mail.

4) A reasonable price is required with every ad and a photo is highly recommended.

Also, as a reminder, the PM Classifieds are for the sale of privately-owned parts from individuals.



*** Guidelines for Ad Content - eBay ***


1) eBay merchandise may be posted in the classifieds with a link to eBay ONLY IF:

-Each piece of merchandise is listed from the auction in the ad

-Each piece of merchandise has a description

-Each piece of merchandise has a price (how much will you take for it)

eBay ads that only have a link to the eBay auction will be locked/deleted.


*** Guidelines for Ad Content - Craigslist ***

1) Craigslist merchandise may be posted in the classifieds with a link to Craigslist ONLY IF:

-Each piece of merchandise is listed from the craigslist ad in your planet minis listing.

-Each piece of merchandise has a description

-Each piece of merchandise has a price (how much will you take for it)

Craigslist ads that only have a link will be locked/deleted.


2) Post ads in the appropriate forums. Ads placed in the inappropriate forum will be moved or re-moved.



*** Fraud ***

I'm adding one more piece of information to this sticky.



When posting a classified add, in the subject line, please insert one of the following:



For Sale: or F/S:



or



Wanted:



This will assist forum members when the posts are on the first page of the website.



Thanks. -Z88R

Everyone please read the posting guidelines for the Classifieds Section.

If you aren't interested in the parts, or don't have the parts requested in a want ad, don't comment.

There has been a huge negative trend lately of people hijacking the Classifieds with off-topic comments. If this keeps happening, these people will be removed from Planet Minis, not just the classified section.

Keep the rubber side down...
