Read This First -- Rules and Guidelines
Welcome to the Alberta Outdoorsmen Buy and Sell forums. Before posting items on these forums, please read and understand these rules and guidelines so you are not surprised by actions taken.
Disclaimer: This is a forum set up for the benefit of the users of the Alberta Outdoorsmen Bulletin Board. Neither Sportscene Publications, Inc., its owners, staff, advertisers, nor the moderators endorse anything that is posted here; nor are they responsible for the transactions that take place as a result of items posted here.
Buyer and Seller Beware: Although most transactions that take place here are done in an honourable fashion, some are not. Do your research. See what others have bought from or sold to a particular individual. Use the Personal Message (PM) system to ask questions. If you feel you have not been treated fairly, please try to work it out before complaining to others. Publicly attacking someone for alleged misconduct can get you into legal trouble, and all such attacks placed on this board will be deleted and offenders sanctioned, regardless of how wrong-done-by you may feel. If however you feel someone is not acting honourably and you have exhausted all attempts to set things right, then please report the person to a moderator. Although we may not be able to resolve a “he said, she said” argument, we do keep a list of bad actors, and if a pattern appears, we can take action.
Rules and Guidelines:
1) No commercial advertising! If you are trying to earn a living or sell items or services to augment your income, this is not the place to post those items or services. Please contact Sports Scene Publications to purchase advertising.
2) Make clear what is being sold or wanted in the thread title. In the body of the message give as much information as possible, including where you live and a price. Threads scroll off page 1 quickly and a prospective buyer or seller should have as much information as possible to make a decision.
3) Keep the exchanges to buying and selling. This is not the place to discuss other issues, or post information that does not advance the sale. If you must, use the PM system or start another thread on a non-Buy and Sell forum.
4) Use the PM system to close the deal. Do not post any personal information (e.g., telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, etc.) on the public forum. Keep all transactions just between buyer and seller.
5) Do not “bump” a thread to the top of the forum more than once every three days.
6) When something has sold, please place “SOLD” in the title of the original message following the instructions in the "Editing thread title..." thread stuck to the top of this forum.
7) Do not duplicate threads in the forums. Post only one thread per item.
As on other forums if rules are violated, threads or messages may be deleted without explanation. If rules continue to be violated, the member will be sanctioned.
Thank your for your cooperation!
