Be Courteous to Others 
Before you post, always stop and think about your readers!

Please note that the following requests are just that: requests and reminders, not rules set in stone. However, if something goes exceptionally out of line that is related to the following topics, you may still receive be asked to change your post and/or receive a mod warn.

01. Please keep irrelevant personal stories off your post as much as possible. If you think it is relevant, by all means take the time to write it out. History has shown that stories meant to elicit sympathy/pity have the exact opposite effects. The readers tend to gloss over these stories and completely skip to the next post.
Use your best judgement! Stories that are irrelevant to the sales are usually acceptable if it's kept within one or two sentences.

02. Please use your best judgement when it comes to the length of your entry. If you decide to list out 200 items (extreme example), please do that under a cut.

03. Please keep font sizes/colors reasonable. As it is your space, feel free to make your font as big as you like and colors as pretty as you'd like. But realize that people are actually going to read your post, so a bright neon color where a single word spans across the entire screen is not going to get people to read the rest of your post.
...More added as we see fit! Got a suggestion? Leave us a comment below!

Thank you :D!

BTW, I what do you think of GSJ's purple/blue colors? Are they too difficult to read by any chance? .__.

Oh, I didn't even notice until you pointed it out, so no. Those colors are perfectly fine. :D

I have some suggestions for sellers:

- please, please, PLEASE tag your posts!
- if your pictures came out blurry on your computer, don't post them! take pictures again another day or something.
- measurements and sizing info are always important
