my.IS - Lexus IS Forum - User's Guide: Site Rules and Guidelines

While we invite our users to take part in the Sale Forums here at my.IS, we ask you read over the additional Rules and Guidelines setup for the Sale Forums.

Read this BEFORE you post in any of the Sale Forums here at my.IS - Lexus IS Forum. Please adhere to the following guidelines and help us keep these forums a worthy resource for all members.

Current Marketplace policy dictates that no member can access the classifieds until they have met certain requirements. 50 viable post, 90 days membership, and greater then 0 rep is what is needed in order to automatically be added to access the classifed section.

As of August 1, 2011, all threads/posts selling an item must now include a picture of the actual item with the seller's screen name and current date written on a card or piece of paper next to the item being sold. No "bait-and-switch" of stock photos from the Internet of the part in question.

No COMMERCIAL posting allowed! - The Sale Forums are for IS300 owners and enthusiasts to trade and sell parts among each other. All commercial posts will be deleted and user is subject to account ban!

The Sale forums are not for businesses to advertise or unload goods. If you post more than one of the same item for sale that is considered selling for profit and will not be permitted here. Any company interested in advertising their goods and services at my.IS - Lexus IS Forum should go through the proper channels to do so.

Selling via Private Message or otherwise using this website and its resources to peddle your wares and your services will result in your being permanently banned.

Group Buys - Group Buys are considered commercial as well and ARE NOT allowed in Sale Forums, or any other area of the site. Please click here for info on offering group buys or any other commercial sales to members of this site.

New User Restriction - To protect our members from quick buck scammers, and to weed out commercial profit scrubs, you must have 50 viable posts, 90 days membership, and greater than 0 reps to view and start a sale in this forum. If we witness evidence of a new user spamming replies and posts just to get their post count up, they will be banned."

Post Your Price, NO Auction Type Sales! - Running your sale like an auction is not acceptable in the Sale Forums. This is not EBAY - last we checked it was my.IS - Lexus IS Forum. We find this to be a highly dishonest form of selling. There is nothing stopping the seller from telling one member he/she got a higher offer through Private Messaging or Email, when they really didn't. So in short, you must list sale prices in your sale post! No further explination needed. If you post an auction type sale, it will be removed and you will be flagged with a warning to your account.

IS300 Parts, Accessories, Etc. ONLY - Items must be specifically usable on the IS350, IS300, IS250, IS200, Sportcross and/or Altezza. Mobile audio/video and radar detectors are ok. Game systems and laptop computers are NOT acceptable. No selling your Spider-Man comics or Barbie collection. Again, this is not Ebay!

No Public Bid-Wars or Price Bashing! - Show common curtesy to the person that is selling their item. Do not reply to their post with "Hey your price sucks I will sell anyone the same spoiler for $20.00 less!". If you can offer it cheaper, contact interested parties via Private Message or start your own sale post. Don't encroach on another members sale post. That is thread jacking and is a warnable offense.

If you think a members asking price on something sucks, feel free to post your disagreement. Just remain civil, respectful and don't try and start a flame war.

No Advertising In Sigs - Please do not list for sale items in your signature. If you wish to link to a for sale post you have in the Sale Trade forums from your sig, that is fine. Details - It should be obvious that the more details your Sale post has, the more successful your Sale or Buy will be. Please try your best to be as descriptive as possible in your sale posts. Pictures are worth a thousand words as well. Don't forget you can upload photos to your member gallery of your sale item and link directly to it from your sale post.

Post Subject Prefix - Try and use the following format to help people know your intent for posting. Start your post with the following codes in the Subject field to verify what your sale thread is about. If it is something general and the codes don't apply, just be sure to enter a good description in the subject.

FS: For Sale
WTB: Want to Buy
FT: For Trade Only
SOLD: Go back and edit your post later with this update if your item sells. This way people don't waste time viewing it if they aren't interested.

Examples of a good sale post's subject:
FS: Graphite 17" Wheels, slightly used
WTB: New or used APEXi SAFC>/i>

Bumping Policy and Rules - You can bump your thread every other day (that would be every 48 hours) but no more that 25 times total. Responding to a inquiry or comment from another member will not count as a bump. Also, NO FREE BUMPS. This is when anyone other than the seller bumps the thread (i.e. "Cool guy bump, bump for nice item", "Good luck with sale"). It will be up to the Moderators' discretion on how to handle excessive bumping, but possible actions include: 1) deletion of your post; 2) deletion of your thread; 3) giving you a warning; 4) giving you a temporary ban. These rules are in place to be fair to all members and give others equal chance to sell their items. If your item is not receiving attention or inquiries or has not sold after 25 bumps, please consider lowering your price. After this time period, it is at the Moderators' discretion to lock your post. If you have any questions or clarifications, please contact your friendly Marketplace Moderators via Private Message.

Site Responsibility - My.IS and/or it's moderators and administrators will not be held responsible for any posts made within the Marketplace forums. My.IS is not responsible for any statements made, sales gone bad, money stolen, part failures, or sales which lead to dispute. YOU SELL AND BUY ITEMS IN THE MARKETPLACE FORUMS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!

We thank you all for your cooperation. Keeping this forum ruly will make it a better experience for everyone. :)
GAUGING INTEREST threads are frowned upon. Either it's for sale, and there's a thread, or it's not. Individuals posting multiple GI threads without intent to sell are wasting bandwidth and wasting members' time, GI threads will be moderated/deleted/locked at our discretion.
Other Vehicles - The ONLY other vehicles allowed for sale on this forum are MKIV Supras. However parts from these cars are not allowed unless they are in the form of Entire motors or transmissions. IE Getrag 6 speed tranny.
