PLEASE READ...Official Buy/Sell/Trade Rules & Regulations
« on: February 27, 2006, 05:18:43 PM »

Extreme scalping of items is strictly forbidden. While I'm not a fan of scalping I don't see a reason why retail items can't be sold at fair market value.

Items should be sold at "FAIR MARKET VALUE". If the going rate is $30 then it should be around that price and not an extreme scalped price.
Now you'll say what's the cut off then? I say with confidence that we should be the judge at our own discretion. We should be able to tell if someone wants a fair price or just being greedy.

Links to ebay auctions are not allowed. Similarly, promoting ones ebay auctions in any way (even in the absence of a direct link) is prohibited.  Most people interested in what you're selling on ebay will find it on their own. Auction threads are not directly offering product to our members, and take away space from a thread that would do so.

Also not allowed will be links to your own online 'stores'. We have sponsors who run their stores and pay for advertising here. This rule is simply to make it fair to them. If you want your store to be advertised, please contact an admin to set up a sponsorship program.

Fair shipping may be added, of course, but if shipping prices are too high, and there are complaints, it will be treated the same way as scalping. Furthermore, no extraneous costs are to be added, such as gas, cost of packing supplies, reimbursement for 'time', etc. Few people worry about this, and if you want to sell, these costs are your own to worry about.

Prices are to be listed in Canadian or US funds. Canadian funds if in Canada. Please list your prices.

The only exception to this will be sponsors, as they pay for advertising space on the site, and as such they dictate their own prices.

Please be generous and post multiple items within one general post. This will leave room on the messageboards for everybody to Buy/Sell/Trade Star Wars toys, etc. For example, do not add a NEW post for every item you want to Sell/Trade, etc. This will allow viewers to see more posts, and view your own posts more often.

We also do not want "best offer" type posts within the forum. Please post prices for each item you want to sell. This practice is essentially the same as an ebay thread, but to a smaller viewing audience.

*The penalty for violating these rules will be a three-step process*

A first-time offender will be sent a friendly reminder, and a link to these rules, giving the benefit of the doubt that they are unaware of their violation. Their post will be edited to remove scalping prices, ebay links, etc.

Step two will be a suspension of the member's account for one month.

Step three will be a ban.

During this transition and implementation of the new rules, any existing threads will be unaltered. These rules apply to any new posts.

Addendum made to rules:

Any reference to ones own ebay auctionsin any form  is not allowed.  If you would like to sell on this forum, it should be available directly to members here at a set price.

Gentlemen & Lady Troopers, we have decided linking to Kijiji, Craigslist or Facebook sales pages will be allowed from this point on.

The rationale is as follows: these sales sites are NOT auctions but rather set-priced with users having no problem making or listening to reasonable offers. The other reason is that photos can be stored away from this site and referred to by clicking on the link provided by the Snowtroopers member.

If you choose to follow a link to another site, any other sales or offers you may encounter while browsing those other sites ARE NOT the responsibility of!!  :speechless-smiley-004:

I am going to unlock this topic for the time being to hear any concerns folks might have - hopefully we all agree this is a good idea!  :artoo:
