    Default Buy,sell,swap Rules.

    Disclaimer
    Aquariumlife is not responsible nor liable for any advertisements posted in Aquariumlife.com.au forums or any transactions resulting from said advertisements. Aquariumlife is only providing a place for members to offer or find goods or services and make no effort nor take any responsibility in ensuring the quality of the goods and services being offered.

    Aqariumlife.com.au reserves the right to remove any advertisements that it deems to be unsuitable for whatever reasons without prior notice.

    Rules
    • To help ensure that only our dedicated members participate, a minimum of 25 posts are required before being allowed to post in the forum. This includes offering anything in response to 'want to buy' posts. Maneuvering around this rule by making short, meaningless posts (post padding) will result in removal of your posts on this forum.
    • Threads in the BUY/SELL/SWAP forums must not contain links to threads posted in external, non Aquariumlife websites.
    • Members are not allowed to advertise on behalf of others/non members. BUY/SELL/SWAP forum is strictly for personal use only.
    • Any items posted in the BUY/SELL/SWAP forum are subject to the discretion of the Aquariumlife staff. By posting in this section you agree to that term. The BUY/SELL/SWAP forum at Aquariumlife exists to facilitate the exchange of plants, fish, and equipment between our participating members. These are users deemed to be active participants in the exchange and discussion of information on this forum pertaining to our hobby. If you plan on placing items for sale, be aware you are expected to be a participating member first!. If the staff feel a particular post or user does not follow the rules or the spirit of that forum, we reserve the right to edit or remove the thread and/or take action against the offender, who will get a private message explaining why.
    • All items will have a high-quality photo and positive identification of the item. Posts with poor quality photos and/or lacking identification of the item will be removed.Photos will be of the item for sale
    • Descriptions should be as complete as possible. For example, include the number of stems per bunch, the volume of moss, or the size of the plant. Descriptions of growing conditions for sensitive or rare plants are always appreciated.
    • Dry goods and hardware should be described as completely as possible. Age, condition, and known defects should be noted.
    “Make me an Offer” and “Auctions” are not allowed. Pricing and terms, including shipping method, should be clearly spelled out .TIP. Postage costs mentioned HERE!
    • Do not make off-topic posts in any BSS threads. If you have OT questions, please start a new thread in general discussion or PM the original poster.
    • Threads or posts that break the above rules will be deleted without notice



    Some Tips
    The following tips are strongly recommended.

    • State clearly in the title, if possible, the items in question. Obviously, if you have multiple items, you can't list them all in the title, but try to give a good idea of what you have for sale.
    • State how you preferred to be contacted and give relevant contact details.
    • State your preferred meeting times and locations, if possible. This will help people rule themselves out, if they feel they are unable to meet you at your preferred times or locations.
    • Once the transaction is confirmed or completed, thread starters are strongly encouraged to ask for the thread to be closed. This will signal to other members that the transaction has been completed and further enquiries will not be entertained.

    Enforcement of rules

    We are deleting posts in the Buy Sell Swap section that dont meet the basic rules posted
    You will not be informed about it being deleted
    If you repost it without fixing it up ( ie attaching photos ) you will have it deleted again and be issued an infraction

    All items should have a high-quality photo
    Pretty much if there is no photo you need to have a really good description of the item.

    We would prefer if a photo could be added to the thread. It's just that there has been some instance where the buyer believed they did not get what they paid for. So to keep everyone happy we would appreciate if a photo could be added.

    A simple pm to a mod or admin is all that is needed. Most times a reply buy the original poster stating All items Sold will alert one of us to close the thread.

    I have recently made a thread advertising the sale of my Brothers fish tank, incuded was a link to Ebay.
    Would this make it an invalid post?

    Refering to these rules:
    • Threads in the BUY/SELL/SWAP forums must not contain links to threads posted in external, non Aquariumlife websites.
    • Members are not allowed to advertise on behalf of others/non members. BUY/SELL/SWAP forum is strictly for personal use only.

    I did see your thread. Because it was started before these rules were posted, I decided to leave it there . Good luck with the sale.

    I think that it should be made a rule that AL sellers are only permitted to charge postage as much as they are paying for the post satchel/box.

    After all, this buy&swap section is meant to be "from hobbiest to hobbiest" and i really don't think that a profit should be made on postage.

    I thing most members are just covering the cost of postage and not really profiting from the posting. I don't think enforcing a rule that you are only allow to charge the price for the express satchel / box is correct, because some people go to the extend to buy additional packaging material to post the items. For example, I received my shrimp which was well packed in a foam box. The foam box would have cost the seller additional cost.

    Just my 2 cents.

    and unfortunatly there are one or two out there who charge 10 dollars postage and send it in plastic bag in a 4 dollar express envelope with no protection what so ever to the plant. by the time they've sent out 10 packages thats a 60 profit.

    most people won't mind paying an extra couple dollars if your going to pack it well or even go to the extent of sending it in a foam box it's when theres no additional packaging and an additional postage cost that it's a problem...
