    Exclamation PLEASE READ!! - Rules for posting in the tech items classifieds section

    Simple rules* for posting in the Tech items & services: Buy | Sell | Trade Classifieds forum. Your posting in the classifieds section(s) implies that you have accepted and have agreed to and are willing to be bound by the following rules and conditions.

    (1) Items posted as wanted, for sale or for trade must be technology-related.

    (2) Once the item(s) posted are sold or bought, the original poster must edit their post indicating that the item(s) have been sold or bought.

    (3) Illegal copies of software, games or movies are not allowed to be advertised for sale or trade, whether individually on installed/included as part of a system or package.

    (4) Double posting of the same item(s) is not allowed.

    (5) The administrators reserve the right to remove posts advertising/promoting items that are illegal or not in keeping with the spirit of the classifieds section.

    (6) Include in the subject an indication of whether the item(s) are "For sale:", "Wanted:", "Trade:".

    (7) Posts in the classifieds section are not to be used for the promotion or solicitation of products or services offered by commercial entities/operations, companies, individuals and websites or with quantities or frequency that may be considered commercial in nature. Simply put, we reserve the right to remove classifieds posts from members who have several classified posts (similar item(s) or otherwise) within a short period of time.

    (8) No solicitation of pre-order/advance requests for items.

    (9)
    Item(s) must not be posted on behalf of other persons. Only items owned and being sold by a member may be posted by that member.

    In case of disputes:
    TechJamaica.com will NOT become arbitrators in disputes involving transactions as we cannot verify the accuracy of complaints.

    Posts that do not adhere to these rules may be removed or modified without notice and sanctions may be taken against the poster.

    Thank you for following these simple rules.

    * rules are subject to change without notice

    Effective May 11th, there will be changes to posting abilities in the classifieds section. The changes will be as follows.

    Threads started in the classifeds section will be restricted to the initial thread only. This means that there will be no additional posts in the Classifieds threads. Thread-starters will have the ability to edit their thread at a later time in the event of price changes or additional info to be added.

    Thread-starters are therefore remind that the onus is on them to be comprehensive in their thread and include adequate details and contact info. Any dialogue regarding the sale/purchase between parties will have to be done by email, phone or PM hence the importance of thread-starters providing adequate contact info.

    As per the rules, Classifieds threads without necessary info such as prices, proper description and contact info may be removed without notice. Thread-starters should also be reminded that creating more than one thread for the same item(s) is still a contravention of the rules and strong action will be taken against offenders without notice.

    These changes are required at this time to restore some order to the Classifeds Section and eliminate several ongoing problematic issues.

    Thanks for your co-operation and understanding.

    Effective May 1, 2008, there will be changes to posting abilities in the classifieds section. In addition to the previously instituted rules, the new requirements are as follows.

    Members must have a post count of at least 150 posts AND have been registered for at least 30 days before they are able to post in the Classifieds section.

    This change is required to reduce the numerous instances of unscrupulous classified postings and to eliminate the occurances of persons registering solely for the purpose of posting classified ads. This measure will also seek to reward active members who contribute to the community's content.
