An Update in the Marketplace Rules

Postby Dustin Stinett » October 7th, 2014, 12:13 am

There has been a change in the Collector's Marketplace Rules (there is a new #8). If you use the Marketplace, please read and follow all of these rules:

Collector's Marketplace Rules:

1. Caveat Emptor! (Buyer Beware!) All buyers and sellers assume full responsibility for the content and the outcome of these transactions.

2. You MUST insert your full name, address, phone number, and e-mail address into your post along with the list of the items you want to sell. Auction site ads do not require full contact information posted here.*

3. You MUST state a price for each item.

4. Absolutely NO Commentary regarding listings for items being sold HERE is allowed and such posts will be deleted. Comments regarding individual items being sold elsewhere, such as eBay, are allowed. Legitimate questions to the seller are acceptable.

5. You MUST limit current sales and auctions with multiple items to a single post listing all items therein.

6. While original videotapes and DVDs as purchased may be sold, NO COPIES of videotapes or DVDs may be sold. NO photocopies of manuscripts, booklets, books, or magic trick instructions may be sold. In short, if the item is not as originally manufactured, duplicated, or printed, do not attempt to sell it here.

7. The Genii Forum allows auction site announcements and links. However, we would very much appreciate it (though it is not required) if the seller would make note in the post’s subject line that it is an auction notification.

8.There shall be no "piggybacking" of ads allowed regardless of relevance or age except by the member who started the original ad/post.

9. Any violation of the rules will result in the immediate deletion of the ad/post. The seller should not expect to receive a “warning” prior to that deletion.

10. All rules and restrictions may change without notice. The Genii Forum retains the right to delete any and all posts its staff deems inappropriate.

*EBay and other known auction site announcements/links, the Forum Moderators, and some VIPs (as determined by Richard Kaufman and/or the moderators on an individual basis) are exempt. In each of these cases their contact information is the Genii offices.


These rules can always be found on the front page of the Marketplace where the subject, which is includes big bold type and hard to miss, says, "PLEASE READ THIS Before Posting a Marketplace Ad," here:

Thanks very much for your cooperation.

As semi retirement approaches all too quickly, It is time to divest myself of a lot of "stuff" including two mentalist domain names and two other magic ones.

May I post this fact and that I am selling them through go daddy and to contact me for that info?

Thank you,
David

I locked it because there are not supposed to be any comments when someone is selling something.

I can't figure out how to edit my post to add items.

You can only edit your post for up to 30 minutes. Add your items in a separate post.

It's impossible to do that if you can no longer edit your original post.

In one topic, not necessarily a single post.

Here is some clarification that I hope will make sense to everyone:

If your ad is old, you can place a second ad with no problem. Just make sure that the original one does not appear on the first page of "active topics."

The other (best) option is to "bump" the old ad by simply adding a reply of your own to it, and include any additions/changes you want in that. It's a matter of the number of threads, not posts. You can have as many ad posts as you want, as long as it is a single thread.

Another option, that several people have opted for, is to email/message me with a link to the original ad for me to delete so you can start all over.

Thanks,
Dustin

I hope you don't end up deleting many old ads. They are a valuable archive of what stuff sells for. There have been many times that I've been interested in buying a book or something, and have been able to review previous sales on the Genii Forum and get some idea of what the market value is.
