RULE 10 - READ AND UNDERSTAND!!!

>>>>> WWPDX reserves the right to be the final authority regarding any and all matters, content, posts, and material concerning this forum. This includes the editing and deleting of posts, content in posts, links, signatures, banners, and etc. AT OUR DISCRETION!

WE make the final decision on what is posted and HOW it is posted on this forum! If you do not agree, GO ELSEWHERE! The final decision is just that - FINAL! This is a privately owned forum, and as such, WE make and enforce the rules here AT OUR OWN DISCRETION! You do not pay to use this forum, you do not pay a membership fee, nor are you paying the costs to host and register this forum. This forum costs money to run and upkeep, but is being provided for your use for free of charge, and as such, you really have no rights to complain. If you don't like the way this forum is run, please find the door! There are MANY others who would be happy to accept your place as a member, and I know of no faster way to get yourself removed than to send rude, abusive, and/or argumentative messages to the owners of this site! You WILL be booted - FAST! Don't bother whining - it won't help - and most likely will result in banning rather than just booting! <<<<< READ AND UNDERSTAND



@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

MERCHANTS: PLEASE READ THE TOPIC ON MERCHANT ADVERTISING

>> CLICK HERE FOR MERCHANT ADVERTISING<<



@@@@@READ@@@@@READ@@@@@READ@@@@@

SALES OF EQUIPMENT/SERVICES ON THIS BOARD:

MERCHANTS: ALL SALES MUST BE POSTED IN THE APPROPRIATE CATEGORY CREATED FOR MERCHANT ADS, NOT IN THE GENERAL FORUM TOPICS AND AREAS! (AND POSTED ONLY IF YOU FOLLOW, MEET, AND AGREE WITH OUR TERMS FOR YOUR SALES POSTINGS!)

Posts relating to the sales of equipment by/ purchase of equipment from merchants and/or distributors that ARE NOT POSTED in the appropriate category and do not meet with the Terms Of Service regarding merchant sales requirements here WILL BE REMOVED! Follow-up conversations concerning sales beyond the initial contact should be by phone or email TO YOUR BUSINESS - NOT on this board!

Initial contact should be a request to be contacted in PM or by phone for follow-up.

The same applies to members: If you are buying/inquiring/commenting on desire to purchase equipment, be kind enough to take it to PM's.

HELP KEEP WWPDX CLEAN OF SALES ADS!



>>>>>> RULES FOR CLASSIFIED ADS POSTING: <<<<<<

CLASSIFIEDS ARE NOT FOR COMMERCIAL SALES!

PERSONAL AND PRIVATELY OWNED EQUIPMENT ONLY IN THE CLASSIFIED SECTIONS!

ALL OTHERS WILL BE REMOVED!


Post what you're selling, Sell what you're posting!

KEEP YOUR AD CURRENT AND UPDATED!

IF YOU LIST AN ITEM, INCLUDE A PRICE!

ALL CLASSIFIED AD prices listed are considered as SHIPPED PRICE unless indicated otherwise in the listing.

(SHIPPED PRICE IS LIMITED TO THE CONTINENTAL USA ONLY -
SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF THE USA IS BETWEEN THE SELLER AND BUYER FOR ADDITIONAL COST -
AND ONLY IF THE SELLER IS WILLING TO SHIP OUTSIDE USA! ASK BEFORE YOU BUY!!!)


LIST ALL TYPES OF PAYMENTS YOU ACCEPT IN YOUR AD UP FRONT:
CASH, CHECK, CHARGE CARDS, PAYPAL, MONEY ORDER, CASHIER CHECK, etc....

We are getting too many complaints about people selling stuff, then not wanting to accept the offered method of payment, or trying to raise the price to cover fees.

You may NOT charge additional fees for your payment choices!
The terms and price you list in your ad is FINAL AS LISTED!

Paypal charges 3% or less for a transaction - that is $3.00 on each $100.00. LIVE WITH IT ALREADY! $3.00 is NOTHING! QUIT GOUGING, OR DON'T ACCEPT PAYPAL!



PLEASE INCLUDE PHOTOS IN YOUR POST OF THE ACTUAL MERCHANDISE BEING SOLD IF POSSIBLE!

WWPDX MODERATORS ACTIVELY SCAN SALES LISTINGS,
AND WILL REMOVE ANY ADS FAILING TO MEET THE LISTED CRITERIA UPON SIGHT!
NO OTHER WARNINGS NEEDED - YOU READ IT HERE!
FOLLOW THE RULES OR DO NOT LIST ON WWPDX!

NO Group Buys
NO Cross posting
NO SPAMMING

Confine ALL E-BAY TYPE Ads To The CLASSIFIEDS : AUCTIONS CATEGORY ONLY!
Listings in other areas WILL BE DELETED!

CROSS-LISTING MERCHANDISE: OUR CLASSIFIEDS ARE NOT FOR YOU TO BARTER FOR A HIGHER PRICE AGAINST BIDDERS ON OTHER SITES (OTHER FORUMS, EBAY, CRAIGSLIST, WHATEVER...)! SELL IT HERE, OR SELL IT ELSEWHERE. IF YOU ARE REPORTED FOR PRICE GOUGING BECAUSE OF CROSS-LISTING, YOUR CLASSIFIED ADS AND YOUR CLASSIFIED POSTING PRIVILEGES WILL BE REMOVED!


If your item is sold or no longer available, please edit your post to indicate so.

Classified ads deemed as misleading or misrepresenting will be immediately deleted upon discovery!

TO CLARIFY THIS FULLY AND MAKE IT WELL UNDERSTOOD:
If you list it for sale here, be sure it IS in fact for sale, or DO NOT LIST IT!
We cannot afford to compromise the integrity of our forum by making false listings!
If you have a sale pending - MARK IT "SALE PENDING"!
The person posting has the ability to edit their post for this very reason!
PLEASE DO SO! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

NOTE: MISLEADING ADS WILL BE REMOVED!
Additionally, you jeopardize your rights to post classified ads!


ATTENTION: Classifieds on this site belong to the poster, and are not affiliated with this forum!
Any and ALL ads and transactions are SOLELY between the parties involved, and NOT WWPDX!
As such, WWPDX CAN NOT and WILL NOT guarantee the satisfactory outcome of your transaction.
Caveat Emptor - Let the buyer beware! Caveat Venditor - Let the seller beware!
Don't even TRY to bring us into it! You were notified in advance!

THIS FORUM IS NOT FOR YOU TO WHINE ON IN THE EVENT YOUR TRANSACTION
DOESN'T GO AS YOU WISH IT SHOULD! IF YOU DISRUPT THIS FORUM WITH NEGATIVE POSTS,
YOU WILL BE REMOVED! PERIOD! KEEP IT OFF THIS FORUM!
