Please see our category "Admin Tips" for more detailed guidelines of our rules. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact one of our Admins. We are here to help you!
MEMBERS MUST BE COURTEOUS AND RESPECTFUL of all members including Administrators and Moderators. RUDE COMMENTS, COMMENTING OR OFFERING A DIFFERENT PRICE, TRYING TO SELL YOUR OWN ITEM IN THE COMMENTS OF SOMEONE ELSE'S POST, TRYING TO “JUMP IN LINE’ OFFERING MORE OR SAYING YOU WILL PICK UP SOONER. ARGUING, CURSING, NAME CALLING, AND RUDE COMMENTS EITHER ON THE POST OR BY PRIVATE MESSAGE, WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND MAY CAUSE YOU TO BE BANNED. ISSUES or COMPLAINTS are to be private messaged (PM) to an Admin only.
ABSOLUTELY NO PERSONAL INFO is to be listed on the post or in the comments. PHONE NUMBERS, EMAIL ADDRESSES, OUTSIDE LINKS, # HASH TAGS AND MEETING ARRANGEMENTS etc., are to be shared only in a private message.
ALL MEMBERS MUST BE OVER 18, use their own name, first and last, and maintain a current identifiable picture of themselves on their account. Anyone under 18 or using a false identity will have their account immediately revoked.
ENGLISH must be used for all comments and posts. Other languages may be used as long as the English translation is posted with it.
SHOW UP FOR YOUR MEETS ON TIME WITH EXACT CASH FOR YOUR PURCHASES! Please report to an Admin if the member you had agreed to meet did not show up! This is an automatic strike and is unacceptable. All reports are confidential.
THREE STRIKES AND YOU'RE OUT: Typically each member is allowed three strikes before an account is revoked however Admins reserve the right to suspend, revoke or ban members at any time to maintain the welfare of the group. Allowing a banned member to use your account is grounds for immediate revocation of your account.
• ABSOLUTELY NO WEAPONS! AMMO, GUNS, KNIVES, BOWS, ARROWS etc., or anything that may resemble or be used as a weapon may be NOT posted. ITEMS WHICH REQUIRE ID or are ILLEGAL may not be posted. For a list of all PROHIBITED items please click here:
ALL ITEMS MUST HAVE A TRUE ASKING PRICE in the price field- No “make offers” allowed. The price entered in the price field must be the actual price for the all items in the picture. We are not an Auction site and discussion of price may only be done by PM. Original price can always be lowered but may not be raised.
ONE ITEM – ONE POST – ONE PRICE! Please only post one item per post unless you are selling them as a lot. The picture roll is for additional pics of the item in the first picture not for selling more items. The price field must match everything pictured.
NO DUPLICATE POSTS. Each item may be posted once. Please choose the category you feel fits best. You can always edit the category to a different one if that one isn’t working for you.
RESPOND TO ALL COMMENTS AND MESSAGES WITHIN 24 HOURS. Likewise allow 24 hours for a response. If the buyer does not rely in 24 hours they lose their place.
ORDER OF INTEREST is to be followed. ONLY INTERESTED BARS in the comments of the item post hold your place in line. If you do not use this method your place will not be held.
NO “first come first served”. Once an agreement is made you should not sell to someone else unless the buyer passes, doesn’t respond or doesn’t show up.
BUY AND SELL AT YOUR OWN RISK. Buyers are responsible for checking the merchandise BEFORE giving the Seller any money. There are no returns or refunds. Admins will not get involved in transactions.
MEET IN THE BRENHAM AREA- Any safe area mutually agreed upon is fine. Meets may be made outside the area if both parties agree. Heavy, bulky items, hard to move, pets etc., are exceptions.
KEEP POSTS UP TO DATE. RESERVE your item for your buyer and use the SOLD function. Please do not delete. The system will delete it after 7 days.
NO SPAMMING! Absolutely no spam allowed. Feel free to mention you have other items for sale but do not comment on someone else's post or initiate a pm in order to "advertise" you are selling.
