Rules For The Marketplace. *READ BEFORE POSTING* :: Acura Legend Forum :: Acura RL Forum and it's owners, operators, moderators, or administrators are not responsible for any transactions, or any actions of it's members in this forum whatsoever!

Anyone choosing to conduct any sort of transaction with another member on A-L.COM does so at their own risk and expense.

As individuals, you need to take responsibility for your own actions, and you need to take responsibility for the fact you are dealing with strangers on the internet. is not a professional Sales service.. and is provided free and without any kind of warranty. We also will not ban people because you claim they ripped you off.

The mods and admins of expect that anyone posting in Buy & Sell have read and understood the following rules. Buy & Sell is a mature place where business transactions take place. Failure to abide by the rules will result in your posts being deleted, or possibly you being banned. It is worth your time to read these rules if you value your account.

These rules are universal and apply to every person and business posting in Buy & Sell.

Posting Guidelines:
General Tips on making posts in Buy & Sell.
Buy and Sell is a place of business. If you expect someone to deal with you, use professional courtesy. Avoid using Internet shorthand (abbreviations like "u", leet speak, AOL talk like "soz", anything that makes you look twelve years old when you post it). Before posting, click 'preview post' and read your post over.

Thread Crapping:
Thread crapping is anything unrelated to the topic at hand. Some examples:

* Making fun of other peoples offers.
* One-emoticon posts
* Excessive swearing and pointless insults
* Extremely low-ball, unrealistic offers.
* Anything along the lines of "That price is too high!"
* ANYTHING off-topic.

Moderators have the final say in what is thread crapping and what isn't. Don't get angry if your post gets deleted, just read the rules topic again. DO NOT THREAD CRAP!! IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN AN ITEM, DO NOT POST IN THE THREAD!!

Price comparisons:
You are not allowed to compare (price, quality or anything else) of someone's items in their thread. Example, if someone is selling an intake, and you say, "Well, it's $20 cheaper at". It is their thread - they can sell their item at whatever price they want, and they are free to adjust their prices without your support. Price comparisons are considered thread craps and your post will be deleted.

Multiple Accounts:
Do not attempt to make multiple accounts to make yourself look good. We are watching. (note: multiple account syndrome is bannable)

Starting & Maintaining Your Thread:
Post all of your items for Buy, Sell or Trade in the same thread! Extra threads will be closed or merged. DO NOT start a new thread with "mods close my old threads" in the title. It is an annoyance and a hassle for us to find all your old threads. You should only ever have one thread active at one time. If you do not respond to anybody's questions or concerns within a week, the thread will be deleted.

All posts MUST have the following at the beginning of the thread title:

WTB (want to buy)
WTT (want to trade)
FS (for sale)

There's no need to post the words in parenthesis. Threads will be automatically deleted from now on if this is not included in your thread title. This saves a lot of time when somebody is searching to buy or sell a part.

You get one bump per day PERIOD. Excess bumps will get a warning, followed by a trip to the garbage bin if it continues.

Include Pictures and a price:
Would you ever buy anything at the store without first seeing it? Well most people won't. The easiest way to sell your item is to include a picture and a price. You can upload your pictures to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and then link them to this site for reference. If you want somebody to make you an offer on something, you should at least give them a general idea of what you're looking to get out of it, and then negotiate from there.

New Registered users will not be able to post an ad in this section: Updated: 4/17/06
Users with less than 50 posts or less than 6 months of membership are restricted from posting ads in the marketplace. Please do not complain about it, it's there for your protection.

Any questions, comments, or complaints should be directed to your local moderator or administrator.

Have a good day.

UPDATE 1-19-06: It has come to my attention that people are offering something for sale at a certain price, and then trying to get more out of the item after somebody has offered to buy it. I realize that everybody wants to get as much money as possible, but that is considered bad business practices, and you should sell it to the first person that offers to buy it for your price, and you should stick to your price. Anybody practicing this type of transaction on a regular basis will be banned from the Marketplace.

Thread crapping also includes trying to sell your item in somebody else's thread. Not only is that rude, it's also a bannable offense.

Something else you guys (and gals) should be doing with all transactions is getting a contact phone number, and an address, even if you're paying with paypal. Call the other person to verify the phone number. Don't be scared, we're all friends here.
