Sponsor Bashing

Our paying sponsors deserve respect and restraint. Attacking a sponsor on the board is inappropriate. If you have a complaint with a sponsor, you may post the information in the appropriate forum and show the facts pertinent to the problem at hand. If you do post on the board about a specific problem involving a sponsor, please remain calm and state the facts. Do not let emotion cloud the issue at hand. We really hope situations can be resolved off-line but we will not prohibit a statement of fact but we will control the thread so as to stop the hate or me too replies these threads often generate.

However, it is expected that you conduct these discussions in a calm, civil manner without resorting to personal attacks or flaming.

Staff will declare topics controversial or not at their discretion.

Commercial Posts / Vendors

Please message gabguy directly, or send me an e-mail at
All non-sponsoring commercial posts will be removed and warnings given out. Your advertisement may be deemed commercial at the staffs’ discretion. You may question the warning and points given for the violation, but 9/10 it will stand. Some reasons your post may be deemed commercial is because you’re selling multiple new items in a post, multiple new items among posts, selling items with an business email (smith @ carparts . Biz) etc etc

Selling items through private message will be looked upon in the same manner. Warning points will be issued.

All advertisers are subject to local tax! We reserve the right to cancel advertising at anytime for any reason. It is our practice to refund any monies owing.

If your advertising expires, this does not give you the right to continue or solicit business. All vendors are asked to finish up current dealings and if approached, tell the potential client you’re not a vendor of the forum and you cannot service them. Soliciting via private message or taking business off the board is considered commercial

Guidelines when posting in the Buy/Sell/Trade Section:

General Guidelines

1 - If you're not a seller or a potential buyer, please DO NOT reply to a thread unless you're trying to correct some blatant misinformation. Any posts that are not directly about the item or an attempt to Hijack the thread will either result in the post being edited or deleted all together. It would be better to PM the member if you have to ask them a question or give them suggestions about their item.

2 - If you feel an asking price is too high or too low for a particular item, please DO NOT post your opinion in the thread!! If you are so disgusted/offended/aghast at someone's pricing policies, please feel free to send that member a private message informing him/her of your thoughts.

3 - Harassment of the B/S/T staff or any other Admins/Moderators doing moderation duties in the B/S/T forum will not be tolerated. Action will be taken if you violate this policy.

4 - No "feeler" threads. Items must be ready to sell when you post them. If you are unsure of the amount to sell your item for, PM one of the moderators and they will assist you. If you want to gauge interest in selling something, this is not the place to do it. "Feeler" or "Gauging interest" threads will be deleted immediately.

Posting Items

1 - If you are selling an item for more then $25, you must post a picture of the item. If you are Parting-Out a vehicle, you must post a picture of the vehicle. If a selling thread does not have a picture. The B/S/T Staff will tell you in the thread that you need one. Unique items, such as custom made items, must have a picture with the user name and date picture was taken. No Photoshoping or manipulating of items in pictures is allowed. If it is discovered, your thread will be deleted.

2 - Every item will have a price on it. There will be no “Pm me for a price” or “This is an auction and will end at this time.” There will be no secret pricing or different prices between different members. If you want to start an auction please go to eBay. If you are having trouble putting a price to your item, just put down what you think its worth. Don’t forget you can always change your price if nobody likes the first price. If you are still having trouble please PM a member of the B/S/T Staff and they will give you the current “market” price of the item, or an idea at what it should go for.

3 - Your item must be ready to ship. You must post the location of your item and/or provide shipping quotes by PM. The only exception to the “ready to ship” rule is a yard thread. A yard thread is one where the author requests users to submit parts requests that they will then pick up at the yard. There can be minimal price/availability and other discussion in the yard threads. Yard threads must have a date to which the run will be made.

4 - Ebay Auctions: Anyone may post an eBay auction, it can be any auction from any seller. Since Ebay Auctions are open to the world, and the population of may or may not know the sellers, there can be limited discussion about the Auction.

5 - Tags: Each post in the B/S/T section after June 1st 2007 will be required to have a tag on it. You use the appropriate tag for the thread you are making. For example, if you are posting an item for sale, use the SELLING tag. If you are posting an eBay auction use the EBAY tag. Mis-use or non-use of threads and tags will result in the thread being deleted or edited.

6 - The word "dibs": Lately there has been some controversy with the word dibs. People have been jumping into threads as soon as they can to call "dibs." The word "dibs" is no longer allowed in any thread as of 8/30/2007. If you would like the sellers' item, it is up to you to contact that member for that item and work out a deal. We have had reports of members running into a thread saying dibs, then leaving the seller out for a whole week without payment, much to the dismay of other buyers who would like the item. You are still allowed to say "PM Sent" in the thread. It is up to the seller to figure out who to sell to. A seller does not have to necessarily have to sell to the first person who expresses interest.

7 -You must have a minimum of 25 posts in the forum to post a thread or reply to one in the Buy/Sell/Trade forums and Dodge Intrepids For Sale.

Other Notes

Trader Feedback System - The B/S/T area does use buyer / seller trader ratings. For a break down of how this works please see this thread.

Since we are all using seller tags we do not need to put F/S or WTB in the thread title anymore.

We think that these requests are pretty simple, fair and straightforward. If anybody has a problem with these, please feel free to send a PM to a member of the B/S/T Staff.

B/S/T Staff members include: crypt keeper, cdccmul, Railoffroader2, Trep Cruzin

Any posts/threads that we believe violates these guidelines will be edited/deleted without warning. By posting in the B/S/T section you have agreed to comply with these simple guidelines. These guidelines are subject to change with little notice. Please stay up to date with the newest version of the guidelines. Guidelines may be bent due to unique circumstances and with the approval a B/S/T Staff member. If such condition exists there will be a mod note in the thread.

Thank You, B/S/T Staff
