Solstice For Sale Section Rules, Guidelines, Etiquete [Please Read Before Posting]

Welcome to the vehicle For Sale thread. This section is intended for private individuals and supporting dealers to advertise cars for sale, and discuss cars for sale. Please be advised of the following rules when participating in this forum.

Commerical Posting

Only Supporting Dealers and Vendors, who have paid for the exclusive rights to advertise on this forum, may commercially advertise vehicles, products, and services for sale. Any commercial posting done by members who are not a Supporting Dealer/Vendor will have their post deleted.

Individuals/businesses who wish to become a supporting dealer/vendor may contact Brentil for further information.

For more details on commercial posting rules, please refer to the following link:

Private For Sale ads

Individuals may place for sale adds to sell their own vehicles and other items. They may not use the forum to promote sales/services beyond that. Seller must actually posess any items or vehicles they offer for sale. Bulk sale of items is prohibited.

Disputes on Transactions
The Forum allows members to post regarding a bad transaction with a vendor or another Forum member, but only after they have made a reasonable effort to resolve the issue offline. Then, when a post is made outlining the problem, the post must be factual and may not deteriorate into a rant or a vendor/tuner/member-bashing exercise.

We leave such threads open as long as they conform with Forum rules/guidelines and in order to give all sides in an issue the opportunity to comment. Then, the threads are locked and archived for future reference.

The matter may not be addressed in multiple threads or revisited with the same already-posted information on subsequent days.

Ettiquette for posting
It is inappropriate to throw cold water on the For Sale theads posted by other members or a vendor by attacking the price or quality of the [SOLSTICE], parts or service being offered for sale or suggesting alternate sources for the item.

If you donít like the price or the item being offered, move on.

It boils down to this: If your contribution to a For Sale thread does not advance the sale of the item being offered, youíre probably in the way and shouldnít be in the thread. If you donít like the deal, you should take it to e-mail or IMs.

Notes on PM abuse
It is inappropriate to use PM to try and circumvent any of the rules concerning non-supporting vendors and links to same. Chasing down owners by PM to entice them into buying a product is intrusive and in most cases, unwanted. Even paying supporting vendors are discouraged from this practice. Violations may result in loss of PM or other privileges.

NOTE TO USERS OF THE FOR SALE SECTION

All postings are not for discussion. This section can be thought of as an online classified ad.

All transactions are "caveat emptor" (let the buyer beware), and it is the responsibility of the buyer to research their sale. RESEARCH, QUESTIONS NOT DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE SALE POSTED, DISCUSSION OF 'FAIR PRICE', ETC. CONDUCTED WITHIN A FOR SALE THREAD ARE CONSIDERED THROWING COLD WATER ON THE SALE AND ARE NOT ALLOWED. There are many sources for researching and discussion such topics. Just don't do it here.



If you believe other Forum members are in jeopardy because of the seller's offer, notify a moderator.
