The For Sale and Wanted area is a privilege for contributing members of the Supraforums! :blah:


1.members STOP posting in peoples threads the remarks like "free bump,good guy or good item ” if you are NOT going to purchase the items listed or any remarks like(you can get it cheaper at so and so place)is NOT allowed ,if you want to make a remark about how good of a seller he or she is we have an area for that (called buyers/sellers rating)and again do not post a question or remark if you do not intend to buy the item or email the person and if its something negative about the item again use the buyers/sellers rating area or let a mod or Smod know and if you do post something unrelated to the item be ready for a TEMP ban and it will progress from there till you are banned for good! HONESTLY that’s why we have the buyer’s and seller’s rating area for. Also, please use some TACT, don’t post your item that is for sale in someone else’s thread its just plain rude.

2. Sellers do not post items you’re thinking about selling but or not sure at the moment, no need to post something if you might not sell it. When you’re ready post it for sale with a price(no price no post).
also do not post your PayPal info publicly !do this via PM or email only .WHY? we dont want to see complaints from 2 or 3 members who sent you payment for the same item .

3.-You are allowed to sell stock parts when you reach a post count of 150<---meaningful** post . NO ONE under ---->150<---meaningful** post will be allowed to sell ANY parts!
If you have 150-199 post you will be allowed to sell ONLY STOCK Supra parts <---you did see we said supra parts! yes ?;)
-You are allowed to sell stock supra and after market items parts as well as a CAR when you reach a post count of 200<---meaningful** post. NO ONE under -->200<--- meaningful** post will be allowed to sell any non-supra parts or after market parts in the main fs area.

If you do not have approval to post for sale ads, you may not solicit sales via PM either. We have these rules to protect our members from fraud/Scams.
-If you have more than one part to sell please edit your original thread and as a Mod or Smod to edit your thread to reflect the new items added
-if you have non car parts FS you are only allowed to sell a max of 4 items of the same type item(examples: clothing, electronic items, software.ect..... ) with in a 4month time.
NOTE:if we see you are not contributing to the forums other than only in the for sale area, You will be asked by any Mod or Smod not to sell any of your items untill you have an approval from Ranger498 or an Admin.

*-YOU are NOT allowed to sell any type of fire arms with out permission from an Administrator (thats it plain and simple no mod or Smod can approve this)-*

**-Members with 0(zero) post count who have been here a less than one full year are not allowed to sell any item in the main forsale areas .unless a Mod Smod Or admin can vouch for you ,we will not allow long term members to vouch for you .But you are allowed to sell in your Regional area.

The ONLY exception to the post count rules is if:
A) A mod or Smod or ADMIN can vouch for you (you must first contact them via pm and they will post in your thread within 24 hours if they don’t the thread will be deleted and make sure to inform the mod or Smod or ADMIN that approved you of where the thread is so the mod or Smod or ADMIN can post there authorization )
also make sure you put in the topic heading by whom you where approved ,if you leave this out the thread will be taken down!

B)TWO(2) long time(here 3 years or longer) members with a good back ground and with a post count of over 650 can vouch for your character and that they can send the Mod/Smod/Admin a pm vouching for you.
You must then wait for approval if with in 2 days you do not get a responce contact the mod , Smod or ADMIN to see if you where approved or denied.when you are approved post in the topic heading by whom(what Mod/Smod/Admin approved the sale) and make sure the mod , Smod or ADMIN whom approved you post there authorization with in 24 hours or the thread will be deleted!

*AGAIN NOTE: even if members can vouch for you or if you have been here over a year anda half it does not mean you will be allowed to still post your item forsale, its up too the discretion of an Smod or ADMIN to allow you to post your item for sale. So please send a pm first and ask us and wait for our response. If you are having someone vouch for you again please have them send a PM to the mod,Smod or ADMIN before you do. This will speed up the process of consideration. Please contact Ranger498 first for a request. If and when you are approved to post, PM a link to both the person vouching for you and the Mod/Smod/Admin that approved you so they may both post in your thread.

(Please understand if you do post something and you break these rules your post can be deleted with out notification. You may also be temp banned or receive a permanent ban.)

**If you do not meet the required post count, please go contribute something to our forums :stickpoke: And by meaningful WE mean that you are posting something or replied or replying something worth while not just a remark like" I agree or me too ect..."

4.if you have more than one item to SELL or WANTED ,keep them in one post, if you decide you have something else to sell or that is wanted 2 days later or a few days later TELL US to delete or merge the threads or you yourself delete the thread and start a new one, if not your posts will be deleted .

5.If you sell the item, end the thread as SOLD so we can lock it, if not you will not be allowed to post if the For Sale area any longer.

6.Advertising for any type of business or selling items while representing a business or having a business in any forum is strictly prohibited (speak to the admins or a Smod first). also Do not try to “advertise some cool new product for a friend of yours that you are not in any way related to”…we’ve seen it all tried before. Advertising, unless you are pre-approved, will result in your IMMEDIATE AND PERMANENT BANNING.

7.If it is not your part For Sale, do not post it unless you ask a mod or S-mod first.
So no "I'm selling this for a friend of mine since he cant post" BS

8.Group Buys are prohibited by both individuals and businesses unless pre-approved. Do not try to “get a group buy going through a shop you know just so you can save all your best friends on SupraForums a buck or two”…we’ve seen all this tried before too. Any attempted group buys will be deleted and will result in your IMMEDIATE AND PERMANENT BANNING.

9.NO links to eBay or Mention of ebay.
If you want to post it for sale here do so but make sure there are NO links to eBay or Mention of ebay.
-craigslist post are only allowed in your Regional Forum area if it has a fs area.

10.AGAIN Post an asking price of the item NO "make me an offer" remarks

11.You can bump your thread every 3(three) days but no more that 15 times total. Bumping the thread more than that will have you either temp banned for a few days and/or your post deleted. NOTE: Remarks such as ,all prices reduced,all prices updated, pm sent ,new pics up ,new items added ,emailed you back, ect. Count as bumps...(be fair and give others a chance to sell there items.)
replys to post can be made via PM to the member if needed so responding to post count as bumps as well.
Temp banning will be enforced on this with out warning.

12.Forsale items go in for sale area. The WANTED and willing to trade items go in the wanted area so make sure you post in the correct place. Posting in the wrong forum will result in a temp ban.

Here is the MKIV wanted area link just incase you can’t find it. DO NOT POST ITEMS FOR SALE THERE OR YOU WILL BE TEMP BANNED.

13.If you have a bad Buyer / Seller Ratings you will NOT be allowed to post in the For Sale area till the problem is resolved by both parties.

14.Your profile MUST be complete as far as location/zip, contact info, etc to post in for sale

15.Do not try to go around these rules by posting items in other forums with out first speaking to a moderator who will get an approval from a Smod or better yet an ADMIN.

16.We suggest you don’t leave remarks like "I have dibs on an item" or "Dibs"
This has caused some sellers and buyers to have problems with people , if you do decide to post that remark you are making an agreement to buy the item. No questions asked .if you back out you can be left a negative feed back.

17.If you need or want to have pics of your items here is a link click here that will help you host and put up pics of your items forsale .

FOR SALE Forum ban policy:
1st offense: 3-7days
2nd offense: 30 days for the second
3rd offense: permanent

Directly opposing the decision of a moderator or administrator by posting a topic that questions the action will be subject to the post being deleted, a warning on the first offense via pm or on the post itself (we decide), and from there, the ban policy will take effect.

Finally, this forum is privately funded by the gracious sponsors whose banners and participation are found throughout and it’s run by people who give of there free time. We are glad you've chosen to participate in the community and hope these rules will set the standard for making this community a better place.

IF you have a major problem feel free to contact Senior Moderators RanGer498 or FYRARMS So we can help you .
You can also inform any normal mod who in return can inform us so we can help you and DO not bother the ADMINS with this as they have enough work and we are the party to speak to about this:

*SUPRA FORUMS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for items sold or purchased new or used and for protection please use a service like Paypal and ship only to there verified address ,we do not recommend sending cash or a money order or sending the item COD unless this person is a very well know member on the forums and can be trusted also please make sure to get some feedback from other members about a person you plan on purchasing from or go check out the Buyer / Seller Ratings area

so we can ask you any time to take down your fs item or allow you not to post an item For sale.

Thank's and Have a Great day!
