okay so i wrote down some basic rules that i think we should follow to make everyones experience a little bit better when searching and posting in the classifieds section, i tried to PM them to a Mod but it was to long lol so im just going to make a thread out of it. Please note that not all items will follow these rules like if your trying to sell a computer. you dont have to put how many miles it has on it lol. anyways, enjoy


1. When making a FS post, please include the following:

Name:
Location:
Means of Contact:
Description:
Miles:
Price:
**Please have the VIN, etc ready**

2. Vehicle for sale threads must have pictures. Do not bother making a thread if you have no pictures. If you need somewhere to upload them then go here: Login - Super Honda Photo Gallery - Honda Acura Photos Images

3. Do not make a thread if you are just trying to see what you could get for you car. You're either selling or you are not.

4. Don't bother making a thread if you do not have a price. Do not put "Make me an offer" in the thread without putting some kind of price.

5. Must have mileage for motor AND body

6. Do not use someone else's account to post up stuff you are selling. Also do not make a thread saying you are selling for a friend. If your friend really wants to sell something he can make an account and use your name as a voucher.

7. No WTB posts in the FS section.

8. Do not bump threads more than one time a day.

9. Do not post negative comments about someones car. It's your opinion on it and your opinion is not important if you are not interested in the car.

10. If you have suspicion of someone who isn't a reliable seller or buyer, then please contact an Moderator. Please do not start fights in threads.

11. Please do not make a low ball offer on a car. It will be considered a low ball offer if you offer less than 80% of the asking price. If you feel your offer might have a chance, submit it through PMs.

12. Do not post anything in a thread that has nothing to do with the thread. We have the off topic section for that.

13. Do not spam your car for trade in other people's threads unless they specifically asked for that type of car. Use PM for this type of activity.

14. If the seller of the item has not posted anything for a week, then please don't bother posting in the thread. More than likely he will not come back if he is a newer member.

15. If you are going to use this site, take the time to create a proper for-sale thread. Do not just paste a link to another webpage such as ebay or copy and paste from another add.

16. Do not bother posting if your original post is one big run on sentence. Use the format listed as rule 1.

17. Do not repost items in more then one thread.

18. Upon completion of a sale or receiving items wanted, please report the post saying so.

19. If your thread gets locked, there was a reason for it. Do not open a new one trying to find out why it got locked. PM a moderator if you have a question.

20. Superhonda is not responsible for any interactions on the site.
This forum is here as a courtesy to you.

21. NEW RULE: We are going to try this out and see how it works. If you have less than 50 posts then your thread will be closed and your contact info will be deleted. SuperHonda is not your ebay. This area is for regular members that are trustworthy to sell their items. If you want to sell, then become a member of our community and be more active in other forums of the board.
**RedWabbit edit- if you post a bunch of bs just to get 50 posts we will just ban you. contribute to the forum, its not hard.

These rules are set for everyone to have a good experience! Please abide by them! Failing to do so will lead to a locked thread! Thanks for your cooperation! :hug

Sounds good.

To add: So noobs who hear about the site don't come, post in FS, then never post again, there should be a minimum post count of 100 to post in Forsale.

I agree, but it should be fifty. Thats how it is on Club Integra, and they RARELY have scammers.

The problem isnt getting everyone to agree to it, but getting it put into place. We had a poll in sextopic that would have required at least 100 posts to get in, but no one ever put it into place.

but did a mod actually take place in that poll.. we need authority to step up into these issues.. thats what one of the main problems is

Yes, there were a few mods in that poll I think. I think it needs to be an admin to put that into place, if vbulletin is even capable of it.

yea see every vbulletin board ive been on has never had that set so i dont think that it is possible
and ive already messaged mike_sho about it but he never responded :(

but at least a mod could lock or delete threads if they dont think the person should be allowed to post

Mike never responds to pm's
and to get a mod in this area would take an act of god. Its been a big bitch for years.
Only people that really keep this shit in check are the ot whores. And that's only because we use http://www.superhonda.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew this button

50 is a good number. I was on a forum where the minimum was 100 and that took forever for me to post my f/s threads.
i can hit 100 posts in 2 hours.. :ninja

good ideas dom!! i second all of them. and yeah, post count is definately a good way of filtering out spammers. but one thing, if a proper format is followed for posting an item for sale, i think that a link for ebay would be ok, just as long as the thread is kept updated by the seller.

The post count is good. When i go in here and see some one with just 1 or less than 50 I think it's a joke. And if no pix it's even funnier.

The prelude section has it's own monthly for sale sticky.



And to be honest I would not buy 95% of the stuff that's in here unless it's from a known member.
