    Bump.

    Folks new or been a member for awhile for sale ads must have photos of the actual item for sale. Do not post the ad without photos, and asking price or the ad will be deleted - no warnings.

    Thumbs down Posting SHIT pictures is as unacceptable as posting NO pictures...

    Guys,

    We've noticed that some of the pictures being included with adverts recently are very poor, and have clearly been rushed, simply in an attempt to comply with the rules and generate a quick sale.

    The classifieds section of AoS should be viewed in the same way as ebay, only without the fees, but unlike ebay we insist that the pictures posted on adverts are of a high standard, as it increases the quality of the experience for everyone, and we pride ourselves on having one of the best (and most active) classifieds sections on any hi-fi forum.

    On that note, from now on, the moderators have been instructed to take down any advert that contains poor quality pictures, in the same way as they would ones with no pictures. Therefore, in order to ensure that your advert remains, please make sure that all pictures:

    1) Show items sold in their best light, which means that they should be close-ups, preferably illustrating said items in clear view, from more than one angle.
    2) Clear and in focus, of a good size, well-lit and the right way up.

    Adverts containing pictures that don't comply with the above will be removed without further warning. The classifieds section is not the place to demonstrate your 'arty' photographic skills, unless the end results portray items being sold clearly and distinctly, or lazily post any old crap simply to fulfil an obligation.

    Thanks in advance for your co-operation!

    Marco.

    Default PLEASE READ! Current rules for selling in private classifieds (please read)

    PLEASE READ! Current rules for selling in private classifieds (please read)

    Please introduce yourself first before advertising an item for sale. If your first post is a sales post, expect an admin or mod to ask you to introduce yourself.
    -
    -
    Please ensure your name and location details are on your profile, it makes it much easier for those browsing the sales threads.
    -
    -
    This area is for public members to advertise their items for sale, if you are in the trade, please go to Trade Impressions.
    -
    -
    Please only advertise hi-fi and related paraphernalia. That means NO COMPUTERS, CAMERAS or any other pish, unless permission has been sought first and subsequently granted.
    -
    -
    Under no circumstances do the administrators or moderators of this forum accept any responsibility for items or services bought, sold or traded through this forum.
    -
    -
    All goods are advertised at seller's risk. All goods are purchased at buyer's risk.
    -
    -
    ALL sales threads MUST include a photo (upright, decent sized, clear and well lit images. 640 x 480 message board size being the minimum. We've had some pretty crap examples lately)of the actual item for sale and a set price in GBP, POUNDS STERLING. An Ebay or other listing is not acceptable, nor are auctions.


    ADDENDUM... SELLING OF NON HIFI EQUIPMENT

    Ok, guys, following the little ‘fracas’ we had recently, regarding the unauthorised selling of a laptop, I’d just like to outline the situation as applicable here for selling any non-hifi related items in the classifieds.

    Essentially, all computers, hard-drives and mobile phones are being put into the above category of ’non-hifi', as we simply can’t determine whether any such items being advertised for sale would’ve been genuinely used for hi-fi purposes up until they’ve been offered for sale, or if they’re simply unwanted general ‘household goods'.

    In the latter circumstances, the classifieds section of the forum is not intended (unless permission is sought by the seller in advance and given by a member of the management team), for members simply to offload their unwanted general computer paraphernalia.

    Therefore, the rules are as follows (so please pay close attention, in order to avoid any misunderstandings later and/or the ’surprise’ deletion of unauthorised adverts placed, without any further warning):

    1) The advertising of non-hifi related items in Private Exhibitions will be permitted, but only as an exception, not as a rule. Only items such as computers, hard-drives, mobile phones (and other computer-related paraphernalia), including cameras, will be considered.

    2) Only currently active members (i.e those who access their account regularly), with more than 500 posts, will be eligible to be considered for advertising non-hifi related items. Note that only consideration will be given, not an automatic guarantee.

    3) Permission to advertise non-hifi related items will be strictly at the discretion of the management team. A decision will be based on how many such items are already being advertised in the classifieds section at the time of asking. A maximum of six such adverts (contained within the most recent five pages of the classifieds) will be allowed at any one time.

    How to request permission to place an ad for a non-hifi related item (or items)...

    *BEFORE* placing an ad, simply send a private message to any of the forum leaders, listed here (excluding Filterlab): http://theartofsound.net/forum/showgroups.php requesting permission to place an ad, outlining the details of the item being offered for sale, whereupon the request will either be granted or denied. The decision of any forum leader is final.

    If permission is granted, then the member concerned may proceed to post the ad in Private Exhibitions, subject to the usual rules of supplying a picture (or pictures) of the item (or items) for sale. If permission is denied to any eligible member (simply because at that time too many such items are already being advertised), then they can wait until that’s not the case, and request permission to place the ad at that stage.

    Now, this bit is VERY important……………

    All members will be expected to *READ AND DIGEST* the contents of this notice (and other identical ones posted on the Noticeboard and in Private Exhibitions), and thus be ‘au fait’ with the rules. Be aware that all forum leaders have been instructed to instantly remove any unauthorised ads placed in Private Exhibitions, without further warning.

    Therefore, if you find that an ad of yours has ‘disappeared' all of a sudden (for very good reason), don’t start a thread somewhere on the forum asking ‘Where has my ad gone?’ or you’re liable to be given rather short shrift!!

    It’s time that members took the time to read the (very clearly) stipulated instructions on how to use the forum properly, rather than ignoring/being too lazy to read them, and simply acting as they wish. Thank you in advance for your co-operation!





    Recent spate of ads posted with no pictures

    Guys,

    We've noticed an increasing amount of ads being posted by new members, with no pictures included.

    Therefore, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind EVERYONE, new members and/or not so new members, that IT IS MANDATORY to include at least one clear, decent sized, picture of every item sellers have advertised for sale, and that these pictures *MUST* be included at the time of posting the ad.

    Therefore, messages from members along the lines of "pics to come" are unsatisfactory, and in future will simply be ignored, along with any offending ad deleted without further warning.

    Furthermore, links (only) to pictures posted elsewhere on other sites do not qualify as pictures posted here. For pictures to qualify as acceptable on adverts posted here, they *MUST* be instantly viewable when the thread page of the advert loads.

    Be warned in future, therefore, that due to the increasing traffic and activity in our classifieds section, the mods and I no longer have time to 'prompt' members to include pictures in their ads, and so we will simply immediately delete any ads found posted without them, along with immediate effect, repeated offenders losing their posting rights. So if you find that your ad has all of a sudden gone, or you can no longer post on the main forum, then you'll know why.....

    If you can't be arsed supplying pics, then we can't be arsed hosting your ads - and/or perhaps even YOU!!

    It's time that this simple rule was observed by everyone, and so from now on it will be strictly enforced to ensure that everyone here complies. Cheers!

    Marco.
