    Complete Marketplace Rules

    When offering a large selection of similar items, (plants, extra equipment, etc), try to keep items to one thread for them. When offering singular items, keep the thread title as specific as possible to help our members. Repetitive threads offering the same previously offered items are not allowed until the old thread is closed. Multiple threads will be closed or merged at the mods discretion.

    A location MUST be posted, along with whether or not shipping is available, or the item is for local sale only. If there is no price it will be closed.

    To aid in clarifying the nature of threads, a prefix MUST precede the subject of the thread.

    Prefix explanation : WTB (want to buy), FS (for sale), FT (for trade), FREE

    Format : Prefix - Item/Fish - Location(City and State/Province) - Method of Transport (shipping or pick up)

    Example : FS - Arowana - York, PA - Pick-up only

    Example : FT - Polypterus endlicheri - York, PA - shipping or pick-up

    - Once all listed items are sold, the thread author MUST post that all has been sold, so that the thread can be subsequently closed.

    Bumps / Take To Top :
    Allowed to be done by the OP 24 hours after last post or bump.

    Marketplace Feedback :
    Use the marketplace feedback system to view the feedback history of any user. Simply click the “Marketplace Feedback” hyperlink under their avatar. Please remember that malicious use of feedback feature will result in disciplinary action.

    If there is a problem with a thread please report it. Please don't take it upon yourself to fix the problem. Please keep all discussion relevant to the item being sold (no trolling, spamming and derailing). All other posts not relevant to the item being sold will be deleted.

    If disagreement arises on how threads are managed, please work with the forum Moderator. If not resolved at that level, contact a Global Moderator who will review the issue and make a final call.

    General :
    Members must be responsible in finding out where certain species are restricted. Any thread in the buy and sell forums requesting or selling a restricted species will be deleted with no prior contact.
