Welcome to the For Sale/For Trade Forum.
The FSFT forum has its own set of specific rules and has a required 100 post minimum to participate. FSFT is for contributing members of 502ss.
WARNING: Do not spam the forums to reach the required minimum, your posts will be deleted or your account banned outright.
Please read the rules before posting in this forum. [H]ard|Forum is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any loss due to any sale or exchange of any item in the For Sale / Trade forum. Caveat Emptor!!

All General Forum Rules Are To Be Followed as Well as Those Specific to FSFT.

  • In the instance that we are contacted about any member here being a "bad trader" or a "troll," we reserve the right to turn any and all IP and personal information we have on that member over to any law enforcement authorities and/or any other group or individuals we desire. If we think you are a troll or a scammer, we reserve the right to turn over any and all personal information we have on you. If you do not agree with this rule, do not trade on our forums.
  • The SUBJECT of your thread should reflect the type of transaction FS (For Sale), FT (For Trade), WTB (Want to Buy) or WTTF (Want to Trade For)
  • No MISLEADING Titles or item descriptions.
  • No Price checks or feelers.
  • CONSOLIDATE Threads. Do not post multiple threads, keep all your FS/FT deals in one thread, and all WTB/WTTF deals in a different thread. You should only have one FS/FT and one WTB/WTTF thread active at any one time. When making a new thread, include items from the old thread.
  • No excessive BUMPING of your thread. Excessive bumping using Bump, TTT, ^^^, or other multiple wording to place your thread at the top is limited to 6 hours apart. Repeated bumping by another member within the 6 hour minimum will not be tolerated. Repeated long term bumping of a thread will not be allowed. Any abuse of the bumping rules is to be determined at the discretion of the moderators and administrators over and beyond the stated rules on a case by case basis.
  • You must Post a PRICE unless the item is purely FT. (Trading for cash still means FS.)
  • No illegal sales or trades.
  • No AUCTION style posts.
  • No multi-level marketing schemes. (PYRAMID Schemes)
  • No linkage to sales on EBAY or other auction boards.
  • No PANHANDLING (Requests for money, paypal, or goods and services for free)
  • No trading MONEY for money. (Borrowing money with higher payback)
  • No LINKING to other sites except for image hosting. Do not steal bandwidth from others, host your own images or use an image hosting site such as IMGUR or a similiar hosting site.
  • No SHOUTING. If you don't know..THIS IS SHOUTING. This applies to thread titles also. No posting titles with things like this, "Things like L@@K!" or ">>>>>> <<<<<<."
  • No FLAMING or in-before-the-lock posts.
  • No THREAD CRAPPING. It is rude and will not be tolerated. If you have an issue with the price, the seller or the conditions of the sale, contact the seller directly, do not post it in the thread.
  • No CONTEST threads.
  • No ALCOHOL, tobacco, firearms, weapons of any kind or pornography (anything that can be classified "Adult Material") are to be sold here..... nothing that is governed by the Federal Government as interstate trade. Likewise, no pharmaceuticals, legal or otherwise, can be sold here.

  • Types of payment are fully up to the seller and the buyer.
  • No Dealers or Vendors allowed.
  • FSFT is for 502ss community members and contributors. If you are viewed as running a business, or using our forums for a personal storefront, your account will be closed.
  • No selling of items that are not 100% LEGALLY OWNED and possessed by the seller. This includes items leased, rented, financed, stolen, or that have any sort of lien against them.
*The above rules are made for the protection of all. Failure to comply with the rules will result in suspension of your privileges to post in this forum, or forfeiture of your forum membership according to the severity of the infraction.
