Please follow the rules below when posting a classified ad in this forum. By not following these guidelines your ad may be locked or deleted.

Basic post guidelines
  • Use the For Sale/Trade/Wanted templates provided below
  • Make your title as descriptive as possible
  • After your title, add the following: Sale / Trade / Wanted (Example: iPhone - Sale)
  • Try to add pictures or other info where possible (upload images rather than links)
  • Edit out the parts you think are not relevant to your post.
For Sale/Trade Template
Item name (be very descriptive):
Age and condition:
Do you include packaging: Yes/No
Warranty: Yes/No
Reason for selling:
Negotiable: Yes/No
Shipping or collection:

Wanted Template
Please post in the: Wanted Sub-Forum
Item wanted (be very descriptive):
Is packaging essential?:
Desired age and condition:
Willing to accept a shipped item: Yes/No

  • Before you can post an ad you must be a member for at least a month and have a minimum 30 posts (similar to some other parts of the forum).
  • No dealers may post here (we have a dealers section for that).
  • Item must include a preferred price. No "what offers".
  • Please make offers via PM (do not post them in the thread)
  • You may not discuss pricing in other people's ads.
  • No off topic discussions. If you don't have a question related to the item, don't post.
  • Only advertise items in your possession. No adverts on behalf of 3rd parties unless you are standing in for them.
  • If you have sold/found your item please post back (hence let people know by posting in the thread)
  • No backtracking on accepted offers for higher offers. If you've accepted then it's a done deal unless the sale falls through.
  • Only bump once every 3 days.
Posts not following the guidelines and template will be deleted.

Amendment to the above:

Prohibited items:
  • The advertisement and sale of license keys, in any form
  • The advertisement and sale of animals
  • Event tickets may only be sold at face value (or less).
Offending posts may be removed without warning and repeated offences could result in a ban.

In addition to the above rules:
  • Do not attempt to advertise and sell items if you are not the lawful owner of said items, attempting to sell items that belong to someone else or a legal entity such as a company, constitutes fraud. Example: attempting to sell a cellphone that was obtained on a contract, where the contract is not paid off, is fraud because the cellphone still belongs to the service provider that supplied the cellphone.
