To make things easier I've separated this into rules and guidelines. Breaking the rules will result in a warning, ban, and/or removal of classifieds privileges. Commonly broken rules are in red. Rules General The Forum Rules are in full effect here. Make sure you understand them. Only vaporizers and related accessories may be sold in this section. If you're unsure that your item qualifies, ask a staff member first. To avoid confusion, 'traditional' ecigs are not to be sold here unless approval is given. This section is the only public area on the forum where you can mention that you have (or may have) items for sale or trade. It is also the only public area where you can request to buy items. If you would like to direct a member to a classified ad please use the private conversation system. You may not use a listing here to direct members to an eBay or other off-site sale. This section is provided as a service for members to exchange unused or unwanted items. It is not a place to sell items above retail value for a profit or to unload a large surplus. Use of the Classifieds is a privilege and may be revoked at staff discretion in the event of misuse. Brokering is not allowed. You may not buy or sell for anyone but yourself. Creating a Thread You must attach at least 1 picture of the item you're selling/trading beside a piece of paper with your fc username written on it. When your transaction has been successfully completed, you must lock your thread. Do this by clicking the Lock link located near the bottom of the first post in the thread. You must be an actively contributing member with at least 60 days membership, 50 posts, and 25 "likes" received to create a thread in the Classifieds. The system checks for eligibility at 20 minutes past each hour. Members who make low-content posts for the sake of increasing their post count may lose the privilege of using the Classifieds section. State the condition of the item(s) you are trying to sell, trade, or buy. Don't use an abundance of caps or symbols in your title. If you're selling, state an asking price. If trading, state what you're looking to trade for. Bidding is not allowed. Replies to classified ads are now disabled. See post #6 for more information. To start a private conversation with a member, click their avatar and then click "Start a Conversation" on the overlay. Or, from the member's profile page, click the Information tab and then click "Start a Conversation". Please ensure that you do not post on their public profile section by mistake. Guidelines Buyer and Seller Safety The forum takes no responsibility for any transactions that take place here. Participating in the Classifieds section is done entirely at your own risk. PayPal is generally the safest bet for sending/receiving money. See guidelines below. Other safe money transactions include escrow.com mailing a bank check, cashier's check, or money order. This may take a couple days, but you will have a record of the transaction. Confirming the full name, address and phone number of the other party is a good idea before making a transaction. Make sure items are 100% clean before shipping. See: how to clean your vaporizer. To protect your privacy it is recommended that you remove meta data from your photos before posting. PayPal Do not evade the PayPal fee by using the 'Pay as a Gift' option. If you do you will have no recourse if the seller defaults. Pay the extra fee so you have protection instead of risking all your money. Don't use the word 'vaporizer' or any other potential paraphernalia terms in any PayPal transaction. 'Aromatherapy device' is a better choice. PayPal has been known to close accounts when they decide they don't like a word/item. General Select the appropriate thread prefix when creating a thread; if you're selling an item, use the "For Sale" prefix. If you have shipping constraints which may limit the sale of your item to a certain area, please make a note of it. To help members understand market prices, you are encouraged to make an edit stating the transaction amount when the item sells/trades Threads with items unsold for 90 days will be closed.
