OLD RULES FOR POSTING HERE: All members please read

Postby AUbicycles » Sat Feb 10, 2007 11:28 pm

THESE ARE THE OLD RULES WHICH HAVE EXPIRED - REFER TO THE NEW RULES


Are you wanting to post in the marketplace?
Please read through this and ensure your post complies with these requirements.


Posts that do not comply with these requirements will be deleted by moderators without notification. If you spot a thread in the marketplace that is incorrect, please report it to the mods using the report post icon Image. The increasing amount of activity in here means it can sometimes be difficult for moderators to review all threads.


1. Types of Posts allowed
This is a forum for private transactions only.
- No Commercial Posts: If you post commercially you will receive a permanent ban
- No posts for services or events.
- Only bicycle and bicycle related products are allowed.
- Australian offers only: Sale of bicycles / parts by vendors from other countries is not permitted here.
- No Ebay sales This is a market place and not a place to promote ebay auctions.
- Sale Formats: You must list a price, bargaining is ok if public (posting replies). Please do not bargain/haggle via PM. Auctions are no longer supported. Expression of interest (EOI) threads are not permitted.
- NEW No selling Multiple Identical Items unless you have mod approval, you need to ask and explain first

Any posts/offers in breach of the rules or deemed inappropriate will be removed by moderators without notification.

2. Minimum 10 valid posts & 7 days membership
New Here? Fewer than 10 valid posts?
If you are a new user, i.e. you have fewer than 10 valid posts and you have been registered for less than 7 days, you can't post a new WTT, WTS or GROUP BUY topic... members who post a WTS, WTT or GROUP BUY but have not met both of these benchmarks will have their post automatically deleted. The only exception is if you email or PM a moderator in advance and are given approval. Please note that approvals from now on will be given in exceptional circumstances only, and are at the discretion of the moderators/admin. If approval is granted, this must be stated as the first line of the listing. A record of approvals is kept, Attempts to mention that approval has been given where it has not or is still under review will result in a permanent ban.

New users may post WTB threads
New users may reply to existing topics

3. Replies and Discussion
In the marketplace is not appropriate to post criticism of the seller, the product or the price. If you are genuinely interested then questions about the condition and details are encouraged in the thread. Responses that solely aim to discredit the seller, the product or suggest that the price is inflated or the product can be purchased elsewhere for less are not acceptable (though it is fair to ask whether the price is negotiable or to make the seller an offer).

If you feel that an offer in the marketplace is a scam or misleading, please report the post and provide a short explanation so that a moderater can address this.

4. Structure of your Post
Post Title (subject)

If you want to buy a bike / parts, please name your topic:
WTB - [your location] - description
eg: WTB [MEL] - vintage track bike

If you want to sell a bike / parts, please name your topic:
WTS - [your location] - description
eg: WTS [MEL] - Ultegra Groupset
It is a good idea to include photo(s) of the item you are selling. You can upload the photo to a free hosting services (such as flickr) and link it. Keep it down to max. 3 photos, and ensure that they are not excessively large. 640x480 is recommended, 800x600 is also allowable.

If you want to trade / swap a bike / parts, please name your topic:
WTT - [your location] - description
eg: WTT [MEL] - Speedplay Pedals

If you wish to begin a Group Buy
GROUP BUY [your location] - description
eg: GROUP BUY [MEL] - Cool Stop Brake Pads

If you wish to pass on a tip to other members on a bargain you have spotted, please post it in this thread: Spotted a Bargain? Post it in here!

For location, your state or city must be entered. Your location must be entered into the title of all marketplace threads, regardless of whether you are willing to ship/post the item or not.

Post Content
For WTS threads, the first few lines also require particular formatting (must be duplicated for each item if multiple items are being listed):
Item: e.g. Fuji Roubaix Pro 2009 Road Bike
Price: $xxx
Postage Available:Yes/No
Details: put comments about size/colour/condition etc etc here

You can cut and paste the below code straight into your thread:
Code: Select all
[b]Item:[/b]
[b]Price:[/b]
[b]Postage Available:[/b]
[b]Details[/b]:


If you have sold/bought/withdrawn/traded your item:
If you have completed your thread, please simply place a post at the end stating that you have bought/sold/traded etc your item(s). If you are withdrawing your item(s) please do the same. If you are withdrawing an item to list it on ebay due to lack of interest, you may place a link to the ebay listing. A reasonable time (minimum 2 weeks) must have passed before an ebay link can be posted. eBay links posted prior to this deadline will be removed.

5. Adding Links & Images
Particularly for WTS threads, pictures are beneficial. If you unsure about how to post photos, in the info section there is a permanent post from Mulger Bill about Posting Pictures. It is worthwhile to read this.


6. Implications for Commercial Posters
If you do post commercially:
- you will receive a permanent ban,
- your host will be informed,
- you will be Black Listed,
- if you have a listing in the bicycles.net.au directory, your listing will be permanently removed.
- Complaint to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for scams and misleading offers.

Are you a business or commercial enterprise?
Would you like to promote your cycling related products or services?

Warning - Buyer Beware

9 down, I guess it gets the activity levels up on what might otherwise be a dead forum.. A rule review seems in need OR a courteous PM would be nice before deleting posts.

Hey guys,
just wondering if its 10 posts and 7 days? i have no probs waiting the week but i'd prefer not to have to post nearly a dozen unwanted posts before posting to the marketplace.
As other users have stated above the PM message button is not available to new accounts (is this lifted after a similar time and posts requirement? this info also is absent from your forum rules/terms page), and after a trawl of you forum terms and conditions i have been unable to locate the email of a mod.

Thanks for your patience.

Allan.

Spotted this, a little late.

We prefer these rules as this is a type of community marketplace - people know people (kindof) in contrast to a commercial marketplace. While the community is not foolproof, it is still pretty good in being able to judge the character of a person, ie. you may have had a fair bit of online dialogue with another member - so more trust.

PM'd

edit: for public reference, marketplace posts are never deleted for a number of reasons. Generally a post in the thread stating that the item has sold or been withdrawn from sale is sufficient to close off a thread. If you have a specific reason a post/thread needs to be removed simply PM a mod or Admin (or just use the report post function) and it will be assessed. Nothing will be deleted, but in exceptional circumstances posts can be removed to a board only accessible to moderators.
