    Market place posting rules. Read first! No warnings!

    These are the rules for posting in this section.

    READ AND HEED! Violations will result in infractions being issued which may result in your membership being banned.

    ABBREVIATED VERSION:

    1.) All Ads must include a photo, location, make, condition, and price. (except Forum Sponsors) No exceptions.
    2.) Nothing illegal.
    3.) If it isn’t your ad or you aren’t interested in purchasing the item or initiating contact with the seller, don't post a comment (period!!)
    4.) If you agree on deal, complete the deal (no backing out or buyers remorse).
    5.) All ads must include a price.
    6.) If you want to price gouge, go sell your item on a different web site.
    7.) Limit bumps on the ad to 24 hours or more.

    If you are selling your privately owned items, see "Member Rules". If you are a business entity, see "Sponsor Rules"



    Member Rules:

    1. Nothing Illegal shall be posted. (If in doubt, PM a Moderator and ask first.)

    2. ALL ADS MUST INCLUDE THESE 4 THINGS: Make/Model, Condition, Location of Item , and a Photo of the “actual” Item being sold (if it doesn’t come with a scope, it shouldn’t be in the picture, photo shop it out). Sponsors are not allowed to utilize the FNForum Market Place unless they are selling a privately held (not business owned) item. If you are a business, see the Sponsor Rules below.

    3. All firearm sales are required to be completed through an Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealer or face to face transaction. It is recommended that if a face to face transaction is made, the seller should take precautions to insure that the buyer is an authorized recipient of the firearm being sold. All Federal, State, and Local laws must be adhered to. FNForum will not be held responsible for any transactions that violates the law or this rule.

    4. NO COMMENTS NOT DIRECTLY PERTAINING TO THE ITEM BEING SOLD. If you want to negotiate a price, please use the Private Messaging (PM) system. Post a response in the ad "PM sent". Moderators will actively police this section. Infractions will be issued for violations of this rule. Infractions are cumulative and can result in a temporary or permanent banning of the offending party.

    5. Don’t post a link to another for sale ad, auction (GB / eBay), or any other site. Please take the 10 seconds to create a new ad. Post that do not comply with this requirement will be summarily deleted and the offending party will receive an infraction.

    6. No Spam, or PANHANDLING (Requests for money, PayPal, or goods and services for free).

    7. Do not step on another members thread, i.e., post your own thread if you want to sell, trade, or buy something.

    8. To keep in spirit of this site, if you accept an offer, please honor it (on both ends). If you fail to honor a deal you may be banned from the site. Members are advised to contact a Moderator if this rule is not honored.

    9. After the item is sold, bought, or traded, the seller is responsible to make a final post saying “Item is sold”. Moderators will lock the thread at this time to prevent further contact in reference to the ad.

    10. KNOW THE LAWS before completing the transaction (age, bans, restrictions, etc....). Don't assume you can ship that PS90 to California with a 50 round magazine. Buyers are expected to notify the seller of their location to insure that local laws are not violated. Sellers are required to adhere to all Federal, State, and Local laws when completing a sale.

    11. All ads over 14 days from original posting date without a updating post by the seller will be locked. If you want it unlocked, PM a Moderator.

    12. FNForum Market Place forum is for members selling their private items, provided they are not running a business doing so.

    13. FNForum recognizes members inherent right to ask for current market value for their items they are selling. However price gouging will not be tolerated. Moderators will lock any thread that is considered price gouging and notify the member. The member must provide evidence to Moderators in a reply PM that the wares they are selling are within a reasonable price matching other sources. If Moderators agree, your ad will be unlocked. If you are uncomfortable with the price you are asking, you are probably price gouging and you should sell your wares on other web auction sites.

    14. Once posted, Market Place post are not editable or deletable by the general membership. Only Administrators and Moderators have the ability to modify a post in the FNForum Market Place. This rule is to protect both the seller and buyer from changes to the ad or posted responses. If you make an error in the ad, contact a Moderator for amending of the ad or removal of the ad so that an new ad can be posted. DO NOT POST A DUPLICATE AD until the original ad has been deleted.

    15. DO NOT post a duplicate For Sale/Trade/Want to Buy ad in the General Forum. The ad will be summarily deleted and an infraction issued to the offending poster.

    FNFORUM WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ASPECT OF YOUR TRANSACTION. IF IN DOUBT, USE A THIRD PARTY ESCROW SERVICE TO HOLD FUNDS UNTIL ITEM IS RECEIVED OR MEET FACE TO FACE. WE ALLOW THIS SECTION AS A COURTESY TO OUR MEMBERS



    Sponsor Rules:

    1. All business for profit entities ARE REQUIRED to become a sponsor prior to posting any ad in the relevant general forum. Posting in the Market Place in violation of this rule will result in removal of the ad. If you are operating a business and wish to become a sponsor and advertise on FNForum - PM a Moderator for assistance prior to posting.

    2. Sponsors are required to comply with all legalities within the boundaries of their accepted business practices. Sponsors who are FFL holders are required to post their FFL licensing status in their signature panel, including any additional tax authorities such as "FFL 02/07 SOT". Sponsors are allowed to "hot link" their e-mail address and their storefront business link in their signature panel.

    3. Sponsors are allowed to place their ads in the General Forum in the relevant section. Sponsors also will have their own sub-forum in the sponsors section to utilize to promote and run their businesses. Sponsors control their sub-forums and have administrative functional control within their sub-forum only.

    4. Sponsors are allowed to post in the Market Place ONLY when selling their privately owned items, not their business held inventories. Sponsors must comply with the member rules above. A statement must be placed in the ad that the item being sold is a privately held item.

    5. Sponsors that attempt to sell their wares as a "member" and not a "sponsor" who are discovered will be allowed a single opportunity to comply with the sponsor rules and to remit payment retroactive to the date of their membership. Failure to comply will result in your membership being banned. DON'T DO IT, YOU WILL GET CAUGHT!

    6. Additional requirements will be addressed by forum Administrators when sponsor contract status is activated.
