Based on my experience as a Moderator & Administrator on this forum, I see a very clear need for some updated rules for any forum members that will be posting any items for sale or for trade; These rules also apply to items being given away in this sub-forum. The rules & guidelines posted here, that are not related to the pricing of items for sale, apply to forum members that are trying to trade or give items away.

1) If you post something for sale - please check back frequently to respond to inquiries and/or questions from other forum members who may be interested in buying what you have for sale;

All too often, I see people post something for sale and they never return to answer questions from forum members - probably because they posted the item for sale on craigslist or some other website, sold the item, and never had the consideration to come back here & notify a Staff Member (Moderator or Administrator) that the item has been sold, so the thread could be properly closed.

In light of this - if you post something for sale here, please perform your due diligence as a seller & forum member, by coming back to the forum to check your thread at least every other day; If you do not (and I'll be checking) your thread/item for sale will be removed. If your thread has been posted for a period of time and you are not responding to inquiries from a forum moderator or other forum members, your thread will be promptly closed.

Here are some additional steps you are encouraged to take in order to properly monitor your thread;

Click on your user name, then click on "View Public Profile"

Click on "User CP" Top right-hand corner of your screen - that's your user control panel;

Once there, under settings & options, click on "Edit Options";

Scroll down to messaging & notification and under "private messaging" you'll see a box that you need to check to receive an e-mail notification of new private messages;

To receive e-mail notifications of replies to your thread, you'll have to subscribe to it by doing the following;

Go to your thread and open it;

Along the top of your thread, you'll see a tab that says "Thread Tools" click on the arrow for the drop down menu and then click on "subscribe" then a box that says "notification type" will open up, just click on the selection that says "Instant Notification by e-mail" and then click on the tab underneath it that says "add subscription" and you're all set.

If your item is sold here - or sold through another website, please notify a forum moderator in a timely manner, so we can properly close the thread and avoid any further inquiries.

1a) You must be a forum member in good standing for at least 90 days in order to post anything for sale (or anything to be given away) on this forum whether it's parts - or a vehicle. This is to deter people from joining the forum with the sole purpose of trying to sell something fast, as well as to protect the forum membership, by ensuring you have an established reputation & have earned a certain level of trust on the forum, prior to trying to conduct any sales or transactions here.

2) If you are selling: Indicate that in your thread's opening post. When posting an asking price for any item you are trying to sell - keep the price close to fair market value.

If you're parting a Commander out - and are only looking for members to pay for the shipping of parts; PLEASE indicate that in your thread's opening post or it will be removed. Parting Commanders out is a very labor intensive process, because there is a very high demand for Commander parts on this forum;

DO NOT START THIS PROCESS unless you are 100% certain that you have the TIME & RESOURCES necessary to see the entire process through, from start to finish;

Previously, this was not even allowed to take place under the old forum rules, that were put in place by previous administrators - but I'm allowing it, based on input that I've received from the forum membership; I also believe this is providing a worthwhile service to the forum & Jeep Commander community as a whole;

However, If the thread is not properly monitored and I start receiving complaints from members that the OP (Original Poster/Thread Starter) is not responding to inquiries in a timely manner, the thread will be promptly removed and the practice of parting out Commanders will once again be banned from taking place on the forum, as it was previously.

I've seen this take place twice in my tenure here, on the forum; the first time was a disaster because the member who started the thread, clearly was not up to the task and he wound up being banned from the forum; The second time was fairly successful - but even the 2nd time, there were some hiccups along the way and it took several months to complete; It really requires a lot of time & dedication to completely part out a Commander and ship off all of the parts to the forum members who want them;

So please, heed this warning. I strongly urge you to be 100% certain that you are ready, willing & able to take on the obligation and responsibility that comes along with such a commitment. It can & will be very stressful & demanding. You need to be absolutely certain, you can set aside the time required to respond to all of the forum's inquiries in a timely manner and coordinate all of the shipping required, for all the forum members you deal with. It really is a monumental task, when you stop and think about it.

2a) If you're caught trying to sell something on this forum for an unreasonably high price (as determined by a forum moderator or administrator based on fair market value of the item in question) you will be permanently banned from the forum with no questions asked. This is considered an egregious act which demonstrates a lack of integrity. There is a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY when dealing with offenses of this nature.

2b) Please list the color (if applicable) as well as a detailed list of items that are available including the model year and trim package of the Commander the parts are being taken off of. Whether it's for sale or being given away, Clear Photos of the item (or items) are required to be included in the post/thread. If there are no photos, the thread will be promptly removed.

If you don't have clear photos of what you are selling, or giving away - DO NOT post it in this forum or you will be subject to disciplinary action at the discretion of the Forum Moderators/Administrators.

Handle all transactions with common sense and courtesy - "Let the Buyer Beware" applies here, so, conduct yourselves accordingly.

4) These rules may be changed, or amended, without notice. Failure to comply with the rules posted in this thread will result in the deletion of your thread/post - along with the possibility of being banned from the forum, which will be at the discretion of the Forum Moderators.

ALL other Forum Rules also apply to this section
