Swap Board Rules $500 LIMIT -MUST POST PRICE OR IT WILL BE DELETED-PLEASE READ
 
[B]Doing busines across borders is risky business. You cannot prosecute if you are cheated and getting your money back is impossible for all practical purposes. [/B][B]So, please be very cautious before entering into a transaction across any of our borders.[/B]

NO GUNS are allowed to be posted for sale in any manner.
I checked the rules and each state has their own and even eBay doesn't allow the sale of guns.....for a reason.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, eventually I get forced to say things that I take for granted everyone understands.

So here we go:

Only items selling for $500 or less may be posted.

That goes for "wanted to buy" items too.

If you are looking for something that costs more than $500, you need to buy an ad and support the website.

[B]ALL ITEMS POSTED ON THE SWAP BOARD MUST HAVE A PRICE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM, [U]INCLUDING WTB ADS, OR THEY WILL BE DELETED.

[/U]Trades are excepted but the value of items being traded cannot exceed the swap board limit.
[/B]
The Swap Board is for "NON COMMERCIAL" use.

And if you have a thousand dollars worth of stuff that you want to sell, even if each piece is less than $500.... you need to get a classified ad and help support the website.

This is for regular people selling an item or two... not a place for your garage sale.

The Swap Board is meant to be used by individuals wanting to get rid of equipment, tackle, tools ect.. not as a place for people to sell products that are kept in stock or purchased for the sole purpose of making a profit on a sale.

This is not Craigslist.

It's not meant to be free advertising for companies selling lures or other products.

If you are doing this as a business or a side job.. then you need to purchase advertising or a classified ad.

If you just have some stuff laying around that you want to get rid of, then use this forum as long as it's less than $500.

From time to time people want to assist Swap Board posters with pricing their items in or around the market. Although we understand this motivation being supportive and helpful, it is often taken in another manner.

For that reason, we ask that ALL replies to posts be in the spirit of purchase or inquiry about the nature of the item, not a commentary on the items pricing or its value.

Hopefully this clears up some of the questions.

I'm just trying to help people out that have extra gear and provide them a place to trade or sell it.

Please don't try to take advantage of this board or break the intention of this venue.

I'm getting tired of people selling thousands of dollars worth of equipment one piece at a time in an effort to prevent purchasing a classified and supporting this website.

I'm here to help you guys... how about helping us too.

Make sense?

Please I'd like to know,I really dig this site and have already net some Eye guy's I know.I'd hate to get tossed cause I'm to stupid to understand the rules of the classified forum.

Thanks,
FC :huh:

The WTB price requirement was put in place to avoid folks trying to buy equipment that exceeds the $250.00 limit. You wouldn't want to pay for a classified ad to sell some high dollar electronics, only to see a WTB come up, and a fellow sells his without giving you a shot at yours. Yes, it seems kinda of silly with items that wouldn't exceed the $250 limit, requesting a price. But then there's always items that are in a gray area price wise. To simplify things we request a WTB price on all items. Many folks just post $250 or less. That meets the requirements. Not to difficult to do. Also the dollar limit allows fellow fishermen or women to buy and sell, or trade goods, but sends higher dollar items to the classifieds which income supports the site.

You need to start a "New Post" for this...you need to put a title on it, so people will see it. Putting it in the thread about the swap board rules won't get you very much attention.

I posted an ad for a G.Loomis spinning rod (I'm a seller) this morning at roughly 9:45am. I included 3 pics. When I returned from the gym, the post was gone. I included a firm price of $230 within the text of my message, but I didn't have the price included in the Title header. Is that why the post was taken down? I want to make sure I don't make the same mistake again. Thanks.
