I.To all traders
  • You are allowed to have only one username. Clones are strictly prohibited and will be subject to ban, if one or more exists.
  • Always ask for a real name and home/business address, especially when trading with somebody who is unknown. Presenting of an ID would be very much preferred. If you are unsure of his credibility, you can ask anyone who has had transacted with said trader.
  • Be nice and courteous. Nobody likes to be spoken to in a rude manner.
  • Handle all transactions with common sense.
  • Politely, aware the newbies of the forum rules.
  • Please use the forum's search feature.
  • You are only allowed to have 3 threads on the first page on any Buy / Sell sub forums.

II.Posting of Threads
  • All posts must only be prefixed by the following terms:
    i. FS: (For Sale) - when trying to sell something
    ii. LF: (Looking For) - when you look for something which is not found in the forum.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Please specify the item you are selling or what you are looking for. Post the actual picture of the item, not a link to a site pointing a reference to the item. If you have a lot of items, please attach pictures (still the actual pictures and not reference pictures from review sites) instead to avoid lag in page load time.
  • If all your transactions are done, send a PM to any of the moderators with the link to your thread and we will be glad to delete your post for you.
  • It is a requirement to have your mode of communications posted, either through your mobile phone or landline number, e-mail address, or by whatever means. You can, also, use the forum's private messaging (PM) feature for faster transactions.
  • Excessive bumping of threads is strictly prohibited. A maximum of 1 bump every 12 hours is tolerable.
  • Thread crapping will not be tolerated. If you are not interested in buying or selling, or you have nothing to say, stay out of the thread. If you think the asking price is too high, or you want to make a lowball offer, contact the seller through his/her contacts.
  • Posting of derogatory remarks about the trader or about his/her item will not be tolerated. Instead, post your situation in a calm and friendly manner. Flaming will only raise tempers, hurting your chance of getting your goods or money back. If one persists, send a PM to any of the moderators.
  • Please specify the item you are selling or what you are looking for.
  • You must post the following:
    - a price for all FS deals and offers for LF deals
    - RFS (Reason for Selling) for 2nd hand /vintage items
    - Actual photos of Items being sold or traded
    .
    # for high ticket items, say 2 thousand pesos and above, seller is required to post actual pics with newspaper or magazine as a background that shows the actual date the photo was taken.
    # required additional pics from the seller for those "used items" with scratches, cracks or other physical defects so that whoever/buyer is interested can already see the actual condition of the said item.
  • No auction style posts. This includes links to auctions on other sites, too.
  • No I-can-burn-you-these-for-pesos services and others that would pertain to piracy (ex. ebooks & audiobooks, etc. for sale).

  • No multi-level marketing schemes.
  • No text-speak thread titles and posts.
