Usage of this forum:

1) It is not allowed to "bump" threads. This will lead to the complete deletion of the thread.
It is however possible to communicate substantial variations to the sale terms of your object.
Please use the feature moderately. We will watch for abuse.

2) Any transaction discussion will have to be held privately between the seller and the buyer. Public messages of this kind will be deleted.

3) No post-sale discussion of any kind is allowed on this forum. If a buyer has a problem with a seller he/she will have to sort it out privately with the seller.

The Forum Administration is not responsible for the transactions, their content, modes, results, and implications. The sole legal responsibles are the seller and the buyer.

4 ) If you think that a forum member has acted dishonestly you can report the detailed facts to the Administrators or the Moderators via private message only.
Any public message of this kind will be deleted.

5) By selling, buying and trading on the marketplace you implicitly accept these rules and committ to respect them thoroughly.

6) Please always offer to sell Worldwide , we have a large member base from all over the world, please don't exclude any of them!

7) No all-capitals thread titles.

8. Don't be lazy and put only name into a list plus price. Please describe items well at least in one sentence each and post shipping prices , images , VERIFIABLE EBAY ID (throw EBAY message system is a must for NEW MEMBERS)

9) Ebay links of non members, or links from different sites regarding sales, go to either Photographer's Caf or MFL Club, depending if one wants to let them open to everyone or to veteran members only.

10) DON'T SELL HERE IF YOU ARE NOT AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THIS COMMUNITY. FIRST EARN YOUR TRUST AND SELL AFTER!
WE WILL DELETE ALL SALES AT MARKETPLACE WHICH WERE POSTED BY NEW MEMBERS WHO HAVE NO VERIFIABLE EBAY IDENTITY

Please don't change title to SOLD, RESERVED etc. It makes troubles for search engines. New posts usually in Google within a few hrs, and if you change it to SOLD , genuine link will be broken and generate lot of errors. Mark to sold in first post body not in title.

Marketplace did switch back to forum, you can decide where do you want to sell freely without restriction. Quick sales are better, faster on forum. If you need long term sale due price or limited interest you can use mflenses.com ad system http://www.mflenses.com/used-photo-gear-on-sale.html
certainly you can use both place parallel too. You can link here your Ebay sales and other hints too.

Because it prevents access to buyers as well as sellers.

And it makes the board unreachable for Google.

thats true, I know about these issues. but if the rule is set up to avoid newcomers and make business only within forum members, is that an issue? I dont think that cheaters will stop cheating after reading rules...

New members with verifiable Ebay id throw Ebay message system same or more safe than forum member with several posts , purchase is a buyer responsibility also need to care about it and don't buy from a stranger who has no verifiable identity. Several new rare lens did sold here from new members if we disable it due cheaters we loose this opportunity. Under 5 yrs I remember less than 5 trouble cases and I remember only one what was done by new member. I remember many great opportunity what was offered by new members and transactions went trouble free. I did extend rules with EBAY ID , perhaps this is help to reach all goals.

How do we stand if we have no ebay id ?

I have never used ebay, either to sell or buy, but I have some lenses I'd like to sell. I have a PayPal account.

Do it, well known member like you no risk at all.

We made these rules to protect buyers from scum, not from 1000+ members.

Thank you Attila, I've got some stuff that I don't use that I need to shift.

I just want to make sure I am reading the rules correctly. Am I correct that I can't post items for sale here or link to my E-Bay auctions until I have reached 200 posts? The rule seems reasonable, I just want to be sure I read it right. Thanks!
