Dealers/businesses selling in the classifieds
« on: May 18, 2017, 09:17:55 PM »
What's the rules on businesses selling items in the classifieds? Thought it was frowned upon? Without supporting the page?

    Normally it is against site rules. Can you send me a link the the user profile that is doing this and I'll look into it.

    Niall,

    The classifieds doesn't use the forum's user profiles. You do not need to be a forum member to post in the classifieds. Perhaps if Bigwedgies could send you a screen capture, you could contact them through the info in the ad. 

    Bigwedgies,

    This has been part of the classified rules since they were instituted:

    Quote
    Machining, rebuilding, storage and transportation services that you provide personally are allowed. Dealers may not use the classifieds. Our sales staff can assist dealers and manufacturers with advertising and can be reached at sales@verticalscope.com

    However, this addendum was added several months ago:

    Quote
    Supporting Site vendors are approved to use this section to highlight their feature products/services but will still need to abide by all the rules outlined in this section.

    So if a dealer is a site supporting member, they are allowed some latitude in the classifieds.

    Thanks JLOpower for the clarification. A screenshot will do fine, and I'll look into it from there.

    I don't really see these ads as a violation. They feature a specific item that is within the guidelines, they are priced and they do not mention or advertise a business. I will let the higher ups pass final judgement on this, but it didn't set off any alarms with me.
