Rules For Sale, Swap or Wanted Ads
« on: November 10, 2008, 06:16:21 PM »
This is a Free service for members only.
Please ensure all posts are related to Lapidary or Gemstones.

Messages older than 30 days will be regularly deleted from this category. 

General questions about the item may be posted online but to complete the transaction, we recommend using the Private Messaging to make contact with the seller.  Please complete the transaction off the forum.

Aussie Lapidary Forum is not responsible for information posted in this category - it is your responsibility to confirm details before committing to a transaction.

Members who are not Traders or Dealers but operate as private individuals can post up to 10 items at any one time. 

Any Traders or Dealers may only post two messages at a time - ie. advertise two products or specials at a time.  Wholesale or undermarket prices will not be accepted.  Note that Trade members are also entitled to add their website link to their post signature.

Free Adverts are worth big dollars - we're happy to offer these for free but please respect the rules.

Just a reminder to new members that this category is for the benefit of ALF members.  It is not intended to be a new version of Ebay or the like. 

ALF was not created as a venue for selling but rather a discussion group for anyone interested in fossicking or the lapidary arts.  If you are not interested in becoming part of the ALF community by participating in discussions, posting interesting photos, etc, then we request that you post your "For Sale" ads in a more appropriate group such as the "Rough for Sale" list or on Ebay.

Regular members who are part of the ALF community are encouraged to use the "For Sale" category - this is what ALF is for - to help members of the community to connect and communicate. 

We do not moderate this forum very strictly but no-one likes being spammed so we ask that new members review the guidelines and commercial posting policy to ensure they are posting in the spirit of the community.  This approach is at the request of our membership and I think does work well to encourage friendly and useful discussions without being swamped by unwanted sales ads.
