At Watch Freeks we have 2 sections where you can list your watches either for SALE , WTB or TRADE.

Our rules are pretty simple and straight forward.


GENERAL SALES FORUM POSTING RULES:

1) You must have at least 75 POSTS and been a member for more than 60 DAYS on this site before you can make a Sales, WTB or Trade Post.


Please note: For new members , the moderator team has the discretion to remove any and all sales posts that they deem necessary. This is not debatable.


2) Sales/Trade thread limits (non-vendors and vendors - different rules)

Amount of Sales/Trade threads you can have at one time (non-vendors.

  • Maximum number of items that can be listed for sale at one time for non-vendors = 5
  • Maximum number of items that can be listed for Trade at one time for non-vendors = 5
  • Maximum combined number of sales and trade items that can be posted at one time by the same non-vendor member = 5
  • Only one (1) item listing per thread for non-vendors. You can not list multiple items for sale in the same thread.
Amount of Sales/Trade threads you can have at one time (vendors).

  • Maximum number of items that can be listed for sale at one time for vendors = 5
  • Maximum number of items that can be listed for Trade at one time for vendors = 5
  • Maximum combined number of sales and trade items that can be posted at one time by the same vendor member = 5
  • Multiple items in a listing are allowed (for vendors only).
  • Only one Sales/Trade post is allowed per day. Any additional posts will be deleted.

3) PLEASE ONLY COMMENT IN THE SALE/TRADE THREADS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THE SPECIFIC ITEM BEING DISPLAYED. THERE SHOULD BE NO OTHER COMMENTS ABOUT THE ITEM. Off topic comments or irrelevant comments to the specific sale will be removed from the thread. Negotiations for watch sales must be done via PM or email, away from the general forum area.


4). Please do not list an item in both the Sale and Trade forums. If you are open to a sale or trade for your item - PICK ONE SECTION, list the item there, and then in the description explain you would be open to both a sale or trade).


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

WTB Forum - This is where you post watch related items that you are looking to purchase.

Posts in the "WTB Forum" should list an accurate description of what you are looking for. This should include a brand name, model number, part number or anything else that will help other forum members understand exactly what you need.

If possible, provide photos of what you are looking for as well as any links to brand websites that include the desired item. NO links to other forums, blogs or other watch related sites are allowed.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bumping threads:

- After your thread is initially listed on the site you can ONLY "bump" the thread 1 TIME every 24 hours.(Meaning you can bump 24 hours from the time of last posting.)The only exception to this is if you are responding to a new post in your thread.


- If you continually bump your thread more then 1 time every 24 hours the posts will be removed by a moderator (without notice to you).

- Your first thread bump may only be made after 24 hrs following your initial sales post. Earlier bumps will be deleted.

- If you continue to do this your ability to post For Sale or Trade threads could be taken away.

You MUST be a member in good standing and an active regular member on the forums to be able to use the For Sale and Trade sections. Watch Freeks reserves the right to not allow any member to use the Sales/WTB/Trade Forum at their discretion.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Once an item is SOLD:

1) POST AN UPDATE in the thread saying the watch has been sold, and

2) CHANGE your thread title to SOLD so the moderators will know to remove it.
You can change the title of YOUR "For Sales" thread!

Info on how to do that can be found at: http://www.watchfreeks.com/view_topic.php?id=19566&forum_id=34


-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Once a "For Trade" is traded or "WTB" is found:

Please update the thread accordingly to let the members know that the item is no longer available for trade or you no longer need to find the item.

Fellow Freeks,

Please do not post off topic comments in members for sale or trades threads. Things like , hey nice, watch, hope it sells, Id love to , but I dont have the cash , etc, .

These comments will be removed without notice to the poster.

Please keep any comments to the sales/trade thread, about the watch at hand, and specifically if you are interested in purchasing it.

For the most part, comments in a sales/trade thread , are uneeded, and it is always quicker and faster to pm to the member directly, I would ask that members do this the most, and just pm the member if you have a question about there sale or trade.

If you post in the thread, please actually be interested in the watch in question, and ask a serious question about the watch , not just post, hey, nice watch.

Also, please keep any questions ofprice or offers strictly to pm. If a member wants to work a deal with you, it should be done in private, and not on the open forum.

Thank you

WATCHFREEKS STAFF

When your item is sold please do not delete the thread title or bumps. We are using this as a tool for future buyers and sellers in our finished threads forum.
Thank you.

Bump to the sales rules.

Also, please DO NOT remove your price once your item is sold. The reason we have the Finished Sales or Trades section is so members can look though them and use the prices as a guide to list their items for sale.
So please do not remove sale price one sold.

Thank you.
