*Mod Post - Updated Rules and Suggestions*  
Hi everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know that the mods have added two new rules:

1 - This is not a rule, but If possible, try to post a picture with your listing as well as your email address so that people can contact you.
If you do decide to post a picture, please limit your post in the community to ONE picture with a maximum dimension of 500x500. If you would like to post more pictures, please place them behind an lj-cut.

2 - You may post ebay listings, website sales, auction sites and personal sales.
Do not advertise selling sites that are not your own. You may NOT post an advertisement if you are promoting a site in order to get commission (i.e. if you are posting a referral link).

 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact the mods if you have any questions ^_^

Can we just post that buyers can either comment or send a pm, instead of giving out an e-mail address? @.@ I'm a bit iffy on posting my e-mail in an Lj post because of spam.

you should add as a rule to not re post over again and again the same post ; i saw some sellers that re post the same thing over and over it start to be really annoying especially when using the search option and to have to go through all their posts before to find something new.

and once everything is sold to delete or lock the post .

if i can make an other suggestion it would be nice to add a tag " buy " or " wanted " on the side to help people that are looking for stuff .

i know the mod are doing an handsome job .thank u guys .

People are able to post the same thing over and over again as long as it follows the 3-day rule. I know that it can get repetitive, but as of right now we don't have any rules saying that they should change their posts.

As for your suggestion for adding a "buy" or "wanted" tag, I think that is a good idea and will suggest it to the other mods and see what we can do. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm kind of ify on the e-mail rule. When I do sales posts I always say not to e-mail or PM me so it is less confusing to see what has been asked for.

It is still alright if you don't include your email. It was only mentioned in the rules as a suggestion. As long as the seller and buyer are able to contact each other, it's fine.

as the seller and buyer are able to contact each other, it's fine.

it's LJ: the comment system is a perfect form of contact.
gsj_mods: Pililiaki | <lj user=indirect>gsj_mods on February 13th, 2009 02:37 am (UTC)
Not always. There have been times when the seller will disable all comments.
Emmyminarin on February 13th, 2009 03:00 am (UTC)
wow, that's stupid.

Regarding Rule #2
Ahh thank you so much, I was just about to ask you about this!
I made a website to house all of my selling things, and I REALLY didnt want to have to keep updating both the website and the LJ selling pages every other day when I get more things @_@
Thank you so much!!

suggestion
just an other suggestion and question . is it possible to add a search option just for this livejournal ?
→ just say yes ☆tortoises on September 16th, 2009 02:55 am (UTC)
Hi there :) I'm new and wanted to clarify a point. I have a large sales post at pkmncollectors, and would rather update one post for availability; am I allowed to link my post on that comm here (and say people are welcome to comment here if they're not members there), or do I have to move it to my sales journal before I'm allowed to link it?
sazzaliniesazzalinie on September 16th, 2009 09:08 am (UTC)
Yes that is fine as long as you're advertising your own selling page and not the community as a whole.
