Classified Ads: rules of engagement

Posted on
  • The Classifieds forum is provided to enable members of this community to carry out transactions with other members.

    Swan Wheelers Cycling Club accept absolutely no liability for any transaction carried out as a result of the use of the communication services provided, including any loss or harm that comes to you or your possessions or any grievance with any other forum member. Your use of the provided communication service is entirely at your own risk.

    Basic rules for classifieds:

    1. You must post the classified advert in the Classifieds forum.
    2. Please prefix your post with either "For Sale", "Wanted", "Trade".
    3. Do not put any personal contact details in your post, instead instruct potential buyers to contact you via the forum's messaging system (ie click on your name/pic)
    4. If you include photographs (recommended) then they must be photos of the item you have for sale and not a stock photograph.
    5. No fishing expeditions. You are either selling something or you're not. Either it's in the classifieds or it's deleted.
    6. The rule on not SHOUTING or applying other formatting to draw unequal attention to your advert is not permitted.
      7 After an item the original advertiser must not remove the historical record by editing the advert in any way (no deleting), nor prevented the buyer from leaving comments in the future (no locking a conversation).

    If you are selling helmets:

    1. You must show clear photos of the shell to demonstrate it has never been in an accident and cannot offer for sale any helmet with signs of damage.
    2. You must show clear photos of the straps and rear tightening mechanism as this is the best indication that it is authentic.

    Advisory (not rules):

    1. Unlike the rest of the member forums, this one is visible via non members in order to give your advert maximum exposure
    2. Update the thread (or close it) when your item has sold and say how much it has sold for.
    3. Put a price in the first post, with ONO (Or Nearest Offer) if you're willing to negotiate.
