For Sale Forum Rules! said:
When selling stuff in the for sale section, you MUST include a price that you want to sell your stuff for. This isn't e-bay. Also, if you don't have your location filled out to where it shows up when you post, please put a location in the post.

If you have an issue with the prices that people post, please PM that person. Calling them out and referring to another site is inappropriate. If you can get it for a cheaper price elsewhere, please do so and not slam the person posting. thanks.

We do help people out here to get the best deal, but this is a private seller section. Please don't refer people to other websites in the threads that people are selling things.

If you need a refresher on the rules that you agreed to when you signed up, please click here.

Please remember to close your thread when the item(s) are sold.

Due to some previous issues, the item you sell must belong to you and be in your possession, we understand your friend isn't on the forum, but this has created a lot of issues. If they want it listed here, they can join, post 25 constructive posts or become a paying vendor, and then post their own AD up.
