    Exclamation B&s forum rules -- read before posting!!!

    Here are the rules specific to this forum as copied directly from the site rules section, but separated for clarity. Note that if your post does not adhere to these rules, it will be deleted without explanation!:

    *** First, understand GetDPI.com offers this as a free service for our members and makes no warranties or implications regarding the veracity of the posters or items listed for sale, as such USE OF THIS FORUM IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    ** Buy & Sell or FS and WTB. If you have camera gear to sell, go ahead and list it in the B&S forum. Basically any equipment related to imaging can be listed, including things like lighting and computers. However, we don't want the area cluttered up with spam posts for items like cell phones or old DVD's, so if it's an item or service NOT directly related to photography or imaging, please don't list it here.

    ** Price: If you are trying to sell an item, you should know what you want for it, so please no listings without stating an asking price. If you fail to list a price, your post may be deleted without comment.

    ** Price Monitoring: If you're not the seller and think the price is wrong -- either too high or too low -- tell them via PM, not in public on the thread as it is poor etiquette. If your not a buyer or seller than you really have no business commenting on any of the items listed. Those discussions are best in the forum itself.

    ** Ebay & other sites: Posts that only point to other sale or auction sites are NOT appreciated. However, if your listed item has not sold here after 48 hours, then it is okay to add a note you've moved the the item to the 3rd party site. If you link prior to the 48 hour limit, your post may be deleted without comment.

    ** Limitations: You are limited to three (3) FS or WTB or WTT posts TOTAL at any one time, though you can include as many items in a single post as you want. Also, you are only allowed to bump your posts ONCE per 24 hour period. Unless seller adds photos , drops pricing etc.

    ** Photos of the items for sale: Photos of your gear are of course fine to include and in most cases will help the item sell more quickly.

    ** Commercial posts of any type are not allowed in this forum, use the commercial vendor section instead.

    ** Please do NOT say an item is "Brand New In Box" or "With Full Warranty" as that can only come from a dealer and they cannot post new gear in this section!

    ** Edits: Note you can edit your title and body of your ad for 24 hours, after that it is permanent. Please do NOT ask moderators to edit your posts or thread (we do not have the time), instead simply add a post to your original thread indicating the update. If necessary, add a link in the old thread to your newer, revised listing.



    Thanks,

    Re: B&S Forum Rules

    PS note on your ability to edit your listings:

    1) You can edit the title within 24 hours of the original post. You do this by clicking on the toolbar item "Thread Tools" then choosing "Edit Thread."

    2) You can edit the contents of your post for 24 hours. You do this by clicking the "Edit" button in lower RH corner of the post itself. After one hour, you can no longer edit a post.

    3) If you need to change your listing AFTER 24 hours, please simply reply to your own post and add the changes. This applies for when an item or items have been sold or you change your mind and they are no longer available or you move them to eBay -- simply add a new post to the bottom of your thread that explains that.

    4) As admins, we can edit your titles or posts at any time, but are too busy to make minor changes to keep up with every sale, so please do NOT send PM's or emails asking to fix or change something for you, we simply don't have the time for that!

    Thanks for understanding,
    Jack

    Exclamation ALL FS POSTS MUST INCLUDE PRICES!

    As we grow, we seem to have attracted a large number of members whose first posts are in our B&S section. Many of these do NOT have prices listed per our explicit forum rules. Going forward any FS post not adhering to the rules -- i.e.; must have price listed, no third-party site links without being active here for 48 hours -- will be deleted without explanation.

    Thank you,
    Jack
