Default Rule Changes...Be Sure to Read Before Posting

As of this posting, the following changes have been made to the classified rules to either change a requirement for posting, or clarify intention.

Rule #1 has been rewritten to read:
Quote:
1) When placing an ad, fill out your location in your profile or place it in the ad. Include City/State. If you are not comfortable listing your city, list a region within your state that a reader could figure out the general area you live. Simply listing the State is not sufficient.
The major change is that an "alternate form of contact" is no longer required in an ad (email address or number for text). If a member chooses to, an alternate form of contact may be added. There have been reports of members being contacted off-site (via email) to conduct a transaction. If such an event occurs, members should use caution in proceeding with a transaction with someone who is not a member of this site.

The "alternate contact" requirement was put in place to help protect members from fraudulent deals. With that requirement being eliminated, it will be more imperative for members to do their own due diligence when doing a transaction.

There are often "low post count" persons who place ads here on the Forum. It is up to a concerned member to do his/her own research for completing the sale. GlockForum staff will not intervene in any transaction gone bad.

Also in this rule, the location requirement has been altered. While it would be ideal that a City/State be listed with an ad, some may choose to give a general location. Users posting an ad shall (at least) give a general area where they live. Simply listing a state is not sufficient.

Rule #7 was also changed to read:
Quote:
7) Posts linking to outside auctions are not allowed (Gunbroker, Ebay, etc.). Links directing to other commercial sites are also not allowed.
This rule has been rewritten to be more general. In the past, only Ebay was listed. In short, no ad shall contain a link directing to another site...auction or commercial.

That's about it. Thanks for your support of GlockForum.

Dave

Great policy change. It'll cut down on a lot of spam. Thanks.
