okeball:Pokegym's Auction/Selling Forumokeball: 1) The only auctions/sales on the Gym’s forums will be in the Auction/Selling Sub-Forum. No one will be allowed to auction or sell in the trade portion of the gym’s forum. Occasionally a Moderator or Administrator may move an auction from one part of the forum to another, but this will be a rare occasion. Those not complying will find their auctions locked and/or deleted. 2) Users will be allowed to place auctions or sales if they are a 'Gym Staff Member, PTO, or have 20 or more unique and verifiable references, or have contributed to the gym in the way of being a reporter of 10 news items, or a gallery contributor of 20 or more high res scans, or an avatar creator. To have "verifiable" references, you must have a post on "Da Gym's Rules and Good/Bad Trader List" thread here outlining all of the people you have traded with, and your trading partners have to have one too, OR you must have 20 unique iTrader references. 3) To earn this privilege, you must be a PokeGym member for at least 1 year, and maintain their good references for at least a full year prior to requesting to become a seller. Also, infractions on the gym, in any part of the gym (not just here in the trading/auction/selling forums), will nullify your privilege to use this part of the forums. In other words, be a good citizen, and you will be rewarded. 4) This auction/sales sub-forum is for Pokemon themed merchandise only. Absolutely no selling of deck lists & grab bags. 5) If you plan on holding an auction for any items on another website you are not allowed to sell it here, Anything sold or auctioned on this site must be sold here only. 6) You can only have two (2) active topics in this forum. If you already have 2 and wish to start another for some strange reason, you can edit one and change the title of it to "Please Close". You can also email a Mod to have it closed. Hint: instead of starting a new topic, you can save time by just editing your original post to reflect your new Haves and/or Wants. Those who have more than 2 topics open in the selling/auction forum may find all their selling/auction threads closed for a period of time. If you already have 2 and wish to start another for some strange reason, you can edit one and change the title of it to "Please Close". Here’s how you do that: -First of all, go up to your earliest post in the thread that you no longer need – post #1. Head to the bottom of that post and click on the link that says, “edit”. -When the screen opens back up, you can go down to the bottom of the box and click on the link called, “go advanced”. -When it opens a second time, you can edit the title of your thread to, “Please Close,” “Mods, Please Close,” or “Please Lock,” or any appropriate combo of the above. then hit "submit reply" - We’d like to ask you to not edit your first post’s contents – just the title – when you want to close out a topic. This is for your own protection in the case that something happens. If you don’t edit the contents, the mods can look at the original contents to help you whenever trade disputes happen. 7) If you reply to your own topic excessively, you can find it being locked. Back to back posts are considered spam and should be avoided if possible. Also you may find your topic locked because you kept 'bumping' it within a short amount of time. If no one replies to your topic, chances are you currently do not have anything that people currently need. Don't despair, someone new might be interested later on. 8) Only list Cards and Items currently for sale as this is the auction/selling forum not the Pokegym Gallery for displaying cards. 9) If you post an auction, or list an item for sale--it must be in your possession at the time of listing. 10) There will be no "reserve" prices. If you need to get a certain amount (an absolute must $ amount for the item auctioned) you should consider a set starting price, Otherwise the starting price will be $0.01. All auctions are to have a starting price in which the verified seller will take as a bare minimum and once the auction is over the seller "must" sell the item for the highest price posted on their auction thread. Please include what your shipping charges will be (an estimate at the least). 11) If you post it here, and you get bids here, you must sell it here. If there are no offers for an AUCTIONED item, then you are free to take the item out and dispose of it elsewhere. However if you get bids - even if the price isn't as much as you would like, you are under obligation to send the item to the highest bidder. If there is anyone who doesn't follow through with sending to the highest bidder, their sales privileges will be revoked. 12) Please post if you are holding an auction or if you are selling the items for "X" amount. All Auctions are to have an end date no longer than 2 weeks of the start date of the first thread. 13) - All sales/auctions are to be done in the selling forum and NOT through PM. PM's are for the exchanging of addresses . We will not be responsible if anything goes wrong and you will not be eligible to give each other feedback if you do deal through PM. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! 14) - All Sales threads MUST have prices listed, no more "make offers". It will make for a more enjoyable selling experience for both members. 15) All increased bids on auctions must be made on a new post, editing your original will not count and will result in all of your bids being void. 16) Pokegym staff are never required to send first under any circumstances, We are trusted to uphold the site then we are trusted traders, buyers and sellers. 17) - No selling of personal art work. No selling of fake cards. 18)-No pre selling of cards that have yet to be released. 19- You must have the cards/items in your possession to post them on the site or to even offer them in a deal. (save on grief and aggrevation when the card you thought you were going to get never arrives) 20-The use have a middle man is not allowed as it causes to many problems. Each member is responsible to send their own side of a deal. 21-Bumping more then three times in a row is excessive and against gym rules. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions or concerns please contact a moderator, we will definitely reply with an answer for you.
