Clarification on Restrictions/Bans/Rules

Please take the Time to Read all the Rules again.

Before Posting in any Section you need to Read the Rules of that Section.

Take the Time to know that you have Pics for the Trade Section.

Have fun in the Catchall but dont get mad when we Move a Monkey on a Motercycle Pic tongue

Have fun. smile


One thing that I have seen over and over on the BMXmuseum is members willing to tarnish the reputation of another member by leaving nasty feedback before trying to resolve a problem like a reasonable human being.

In my 6 plus years as a staff member , this pisses me off almost as much as a scammer.

Re: Clarification on Restrictions/Bans/Rules

BMX Museum For Sale sections Rules and Regulations:

Selling
All for sale post need to be listed in one of two of the BMXmuseum's for sale sections.

Reproductions / Knockoffs / Copyright Infringements / Likenesses:

No item can be sold/traded for on the BMX Museum that was produced without license or permission from the copyright holder.
"This includes, but is not limited to: stickers, decals, pad sets, shirts, hats, clocks, license plates etc"

Posting Timelines:

Once an item has been listed F/S in the old F/S Section you must wait 72 hours before re-posting it again or posting it in the Beta section and vice versa when moving an item from the Beta section to the old section.
If you relist an item before 72 hours have passed your F/S will be deleted, a warning will be issued and you cannot relist that item for another 72 hours.

Relisting The Same Items:

When you start a New For Sale Thread of the Same Item/Items you need to Mark the Previous one as SOLD.
You can only have one Active For Sale Thread with the Same Item/Items.

Double Posting:

No double posting. List your Item in either the New or Old For Sale Section. Not both at the same time!
If you choose to sell an item in the old F/S section and would like to then list it in the Beta section you must wait 72 hours from the moment you mark the item as SOLD in the old section. Vice Versa if you want to list a item in the old section that was listed in the Beta section, you must wait 72 hours from when you marked the item as sold.

Linking:

There is to be no Links in a F/S Thread to another F/S Thread, Section, Craigslist or Ebay.
There is to be no Linking to External Site's in order to make a Payment for an Item.

Gift Payments:

We do not allow Sellers to require Payment of a "Gift" through Paypal as a Term of the Sale because if you pay for an Item with a Gift Payment you Forfeit your right to File a Claim against the Seller in the Event of a problem. Absolutely No Gift Payments or hints of Gift Payments

Pictures:

You may link to your Photobucket account for more pictures but at least 1 picture must be posted for each item for sale.
The pictures must be your own and not borrowed from another source.
Pictures displayed of items F/S in the For Sale section display panel must be of the actual item and nothing else.

Prices:

A price must be posted for each item for sale.
The BMXmuseum is not ebay and we don't allow bidding wars. Once a price has been posted the posted price must be honored.
Do not delete pictures or prices once an item has been sold: Mark it sold like this ( $25.00 -- Sold ) 
If you post a ridiculous price  "asking $1,000,000 OBO" your thread will be removed.

Items:

Items must be in your possession, there will be NO!! "If there's Interest I'll pick this up"...  If it's not in your Possession with your own pictures, it should not be up For Sale. If you choose to sell an item for someone else you take full responsibility for the entire Transaction.
Also you need to be for sure youre the one that can Ship Item/Items & do it in a reasonable amount of Time.

Spam in Thread Titles:

No key word brand spamming in for sale/trade thread titles.

Lots:

Parts lots are considered 1 item.
It does not matter if there are 7 parts or more in them it is one item.

Multiple For Sale Threads:

If you have a complete bike, you may start a new F/S thread. 
If you have more than 7 items, you may start a new F/S thread.
Part Lots are considered 1 item.
If you have less than 7 items, stop and do not make a new F/S thread until 72 hours have passed.
For Example:

a.) 7 items: stop and start another F/S thread.
b.) 1-6 items: stop and wait until 72 hours have passed before starting a new F/S thread.
c.) If you list a bike as a complete then sell a few parts off it you must mark the rest as sold and wait 72 hours before re-posting  the excess parts.

Ban Rules:

Scammers or Payday Loans - not Refunding or skip town Sellers will be Banned.
Sellers who does not Ship and Refunds later on, will be noted in the Admin Notes, do it 3 times, you’re out..(Banned Permanently)
We have placed Zero Tolerance in the FS Section for Scammers or "pay day loans" - Selling something and not Shipping.
If the Seller does not ship within 1 week (unless arrangements have been made), PM a mod/admin.  We will Investigate it and we will put the Seller on FS Restriction till that matter is cleared.

Post Jumping:

Trying to sell items on other members For Sale threads is rude and unacceptable.

Copyright:

Items that were made without the copyright holders permission are subject to deletion.

Trash Talk:

Trash Talk in a For Sale Thread is not Allowed.
â‹…
NO Pre Sales! NO Feelers/Interest threads:

Non-bmx Items are subject to deletion. 
As the title of this forum states "For buying/selling of BMX related items only".
This include's Stingray's or Stingray style bikes as those are not currently considered BMX bikes.
There are to be no mystery boxes, raffles or charitable auctions in the F/S sections.


Buying

Dibs:

It is a non-Official Museum Rule
Sellers will usually outline their own preference for this, but when in doubt, 1st come is 1st served. 
If you leave a Negative Feedback for a Member that Calls *dibs* it will be Deleted...
Feel free to report "Non Paying dibbers" to a staff member and it will be noted.

Buyers: if you don't intend to purchase an item, don't claim it as your own by calling dibs!
If you do call dibs and have to back out for whatever reason either edit your post to retract the dibs or post again in the thread stating you are not claiming the item.

Post Jumping:

This is NOT an Auction Site and if you see someone has already laid claim to an item do not try and throw offers at the seller.

Purchasing:

Sellers will usually declare their choice of payment method whether that be Paypal, Cash or Money Order.
If you choose to call dibs or state you want to purchase an item it is expected that you pay immediately or contact the seller via PM to arrange payment.

BUYERS:

Using this Forum, it would be in your best interest to take time and PM/email sellers with any questions you have before buying.  This includes questions about the seller!  We have many new members signing up daily, low post count doesn't necessarily mean zero experience, they may have excellent Feedback elsewhere.  Ask them!  If something doesn't seem right to you, don't buy.

SELLERS:

The same goes for Sellers!  If you think you are dealing with a shady buyer, ask questions, use the search button, check Feedback, etc.  Communicate with your Buyers!  Posting "my paypal is me@myhouse.com, just send a Payment.  do not PM me"...  If you fail to see the complications that can follow this, don't post.  If you don't want to communicate with your buyers, sell elsewhere.

For Sale/SOLD section:

This Section is designed to store Sale Threads so the Info will not be lost. This helps Protect Sellers & Buyers as all information will be stored for future reference.

Rules For Sold Category:

Sale threads should not be edited out before sending to this section and left with nothing other then a dot or a smiley.
ALL INFO MUST BE LEFT INTACT for the buyers and sellers protection!

If you delete the info of your sale ad you will be given a warning. 2nd offense you will get a 1 week sales restriction. 3rd offense you will lose your ability to sell here.

******************INSURANCE**********************

The seller can offer Insurance, but as a Buyer if you dont ask for Insurance, And Seller can show proof that heSshipped, You are out! As a Seller, You should keep your Shipping Receipt until you are sure the Package has arrived to the Buyer. I take Pics of the Receipt & keep in Photobucket myself. All Sellers should honer the request of Insurance from the Buyer. Especially Overseas Shipments! Who covers the Price of Insurance is to be Negotiated between the Buyer & Seller (Just like Shipping Costs)



*************PAYPAL - CLAIMS - CALLOUTS**************

Everyone should know you have 45 DAYS To do a Paypal Claim.
Remember! Paypal Claims are INVALID for Gift & Personal Payments.

If after 20 days from Payment being made for Domestic Shipments or 30 days for International Shipments you have still not Received your Items contact a MOD/ADMIN and Inform them .
Always keep in Touch with the Seller, There might be a good/acceptable reason for the delay.

  Communication Is Key!!

Contacting a MOD/ADMIN is going play a huge part in helping you!

You should always contact a MOD/ADMIN BEFORE Starting a CALL OUT Thread.
You should not comment on any CALL OUT Thread unless you are currently Involved in a Transaction with the person being CALLED OUT. Past Issues are just that, PAST.
If you have something that would be helpful about the Members involved in that CALL OUT Thread, PM a MOD/ADMIN.
If you are Commenting on the CALL OUT Thread, and are not involved in it, You can/will be Warned. Break this Rule over & over & you can/will be put on Post Restriction.

Re: Clarification on Restrictions/Bans/Rules

WTB Rules:

1. Once you got your Item or you have no more use for the Thread...Report the Thread...so it can get Deleted.

2. Do not post on another members WTB thread asking for the same item. Start your own WTB thread.

Swooping in on other members "Wanted" thread is rude and unacceptable.

3. If you are responding to a WTB thread, You can negotiate the price/$$$ however you like but pics and an accurate description is a must.

4. You can post that you have what the member is looking for without pics on the spot but before the deal is made the above rules need to be followed.

If your on Restriction you cant Post in this Section

Thanks.

Re: Clarification on Restrictions/Bans/Rules

Name It Section Rules:

This Section is to help i.d. those bikes/parts that just cant seem to be Identified.  smile

People here will help but make it easy for people,dont make people work to find info that can be easily found on your own with a few minutes of time.

Use the museum bikes sections or Reference and Research sections of the forum and see if you can find something that it is or might be.
USE THE SEARCH BUTTON! it helps wink

If you start a thread here, put in the title of what it might be(manufacturer and model)/its era (i.e. late 70s,mid 80s,early 90s etc) and what are we gonna be looking at i.e. frame, bars, cranks etc.

MUST HAVE PICS!!  i cant stress this enough,nothing can get a positive i.d. without pics. so any "it has these stickers on it with these wheels on it,with this...this person said it was this......but i dont have a pic...... what is it?"  will not fly here.

Have your own pictures. please dont post links to somewhere else.(it makes it easier for people to see on here and the pics might help somebody else out) save them to your computer,upload them to a photo hosting site then put them here.
dont know how to post pics? read this below.

http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=321443


Take good pictures (not 100ft away) that will help i.d. it.   if you need a frame i.d., take pics of the whole frame, any identification marks, the dropouts, the head tube and gusset area, the seat stays, chain stays etc.   provide serial numbers,they can help.

This is NOT an appraisal site/forum! do not post "whats this worth?"  two reasons for this, bmx bikes do not have a fixed dollar amount attached to them and the market varies everyday so its an impossible question to answer. and its also a broken record,it is asked 500 times a week.

This is NOT the for sale section forum! do NOT post "just got this/had this forever......what is it.....now that i know what it is,who wants to buy this? im letting it go" it will not be tolerated. this forum section is for i.d.,not a feeler section to sell!

Play by the rules, help us help you and be nice and people here will be way more helpful for your i.d. needs. cool

Hope this helps cool
