Attention: Amendment to Buy / Sell rules

[size=15pt][glow=red,2,300]IMPORTANT[/glow] As of January 11, 2007, the FMVperformance.com site has been completely renovated. The proper URL for these rules is now:
https://www.fmvperformance.com/index.php?board=1045.0 Most important for Buy/Sell purposes is "Forum Rules & Regulations." The below rules are now depreciated.[/size]



This post is to alert users that an amendment has been made to the buy/sell rules. This rule is in effect to facilitate smooth transactions. The motive for this amendment is due to reported problems with posts in certain "sell" threads.

The amendment is available below. The full buy/sell rules can be viewed at this link:
http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=16292.0

<span style="font-size: 14pt;"> 6) Mitigating disruptions in Buy/Sell threads</span>. (June/12/2006)
Often times, there are certain types of posts that disrupt the course of a buy/sell thread. This rule will address this issue.

Forum members will not be restricted from informing people regarding retail prices of your product, so long as the comparison product price that is mentioned is sold by a forum sponsor. Additionally, users must avoid intentionally passing judgement regarding the degree of savings of the buy/sell thread. However, Forum members may not intentionally speak negatively of a product with their opinions. These rules are in place to allow forum members to reasonably communicate their thoughts about a sale, while also protecting sellers from perceived &quot;thread crapping&quot; that could de-rail a reasonable sale.

Because the General Buy/Sell forum usually offers items not available from sponsors, this means that users will probably find it difficult to offer a comparison price. Because of this, participants wishing to purchase an item for sale in the General Buy/Sell forum should do their own due dilligence to compare prices with a product that serves as a similar match or viable alternative to the item for sale.

Moderators reserve the right to remove any post that they feel violates this rule. The Buy/Sell section requires policies that are much more strict than those of the rest of the forum.

An example regarding pricing posts: If you are selling an Injen cold air intake and are asking a price is $300, it will be acceptable for a forum member to indicate that your asking price is the same as the full retail price that Injen offers as the MSRP of the intake. This is because the Injen cold air intake is sold by various sponsors of Mazda3forums. However, a member who sold an Injen intake 1 month prior for $100 via eBay cannot post a link to their previous eBay auction showing the $100 sale. If the buy/sell thread&#039;s asking price is simply $5 less than what is currently available from a sponsor, users must refrain from intentionally stating that the $5 savings is insufficient or &quot;lame.&quot; Haggling is fine, purposley bagging the seller&#039;s reputation or attacking an offered price is not okay.

Regarding the restriction of negative comments and thread crapping: If a seller posts an Injen intake, forum members will not enter the particular buy/sell thread to speak negatively of Injen&#039;s products. They cannot post about their opinions that AEM makes a superior product than Injen. Discussion regarding the benefits of one particular brand or product must be done in the general forums, and not explicitly within the Buy/Sell area.

Re: Attention: Amendment to Buy / Sell rules

interesting, what if the potiential buyer is unaware of the bennefit of the AEM intake? Would it not be better to help out a fellow memer than allow him/her to purchase an inferior product?

Yeah, hopefully those people will read about alternative intakes in the rest of the forum before deciding to drop buckaroos on an item in the buy/sell thread.

Hey, it&#039;s tough to find a happy medium here, work with me

Re: Attention: Amendment to Buy / Sell rules

I say only allow replies that apply to the initial post and no &quot;you should get this other XXXXX from this store XXXXX&quot; especially in response to potential buyers.

I&#039;ve noticed 1 or 2 members that like to instigate in this buy/sell forum but have no interest of purchasing at all.* it&#039;s kinda annoying.
