IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE RULES PLEASE PM AN ADMINISTRATOR WITH QUESTIONS!
(Admins are Sabrina Niebel & Brenda Benedict)
BE SURE TO READ THE POSTS UNDER ADMIN TIPS FOR HELPFUL HINTS AND RULES AS WELL.
FIRST AND FOREMOST THIS IS A NO DRAMA AREA! DRAMA WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!
THIS IS A MARYVILLE/ ALCOA/ BLOUNT SITE! If you buy or sell items on this site, you are expected to meet in this area. WE WILL ALLOW MEMBERS TO BE ADDED FROM SURROUNDING AREAS HOWEVER YOU ARE EXPECTED TO MEET IN THE MARYVILLE VICINITY! DO NOT EVEN ASK TO MEET OUTSIDE OF BLOUNT COUNTY! (If you are not local you must offer a shipping method at a cost to you.) If you have large items such as furniture that must be picked up please note item location in listing and that it is for PICK UP ONLY.
NO GUNS/WEAPONS/AMMO/ALCOHOL/DRUGS/PORNOGRAPHY/NUDITY on this site!
SELLING & PURCHASING:
Okay so here's the deal yes we are admins but we also have lives and families and do not want to police how many photos you post within a set amount of time, with that said.... we are going to TRY not having a limit on how many photos in what amount of time and so on and so on......HOWEVER FOR THIS TO WORK YOU MUST POST IN THE CORRECT CATEGORIES!
AND Here is one of the greatest things about VS - after you sell an item REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE STATUS OF THAT ITEM TO SOLD - once you do this in 7 days VS will delete the post for you, so you no longer have to delete your items.
Be sure and put all information on each photo, ex. size, price, etc. If you or someone from your home smoke, your item must indicate "SMOKERS HOME". If you have pets please indicate "PET LOVING HOME" as some people are allergic to pets.
PLEASE STATE THE CONDITION OF THE ITEM EXACTLY AS IT IS!
If posting designer purses, etc. unless you purchased the item yourself from the store, do not tell people purse is authentic! If there is a stain, a rip, a hole, etc. note that in your listing.
IF YOU POST ON OTHER PAGES KEEP YOUR POSTS UPDATED HERE!
BUMPING - is preset for every 48 hours, you can go to "My Stuff" and it will be highlighted in green so that you can bump. If its not highlighted you cannot bump the item. Another great thing about VS is buyers can search for items and don't have to scroll through the feed!
SELLER - If you do not want people to make low offers on your items please put FIRM in the description. If the word firm is there and they pm you with an offer and someone else comes along and offers full price, the full price buyer gets the item. THIS IS ONLY IF FIRM WAS STATED!!!
BUYER - MAKING OFFERS: if you want to offer someone less for an item please mark item sold pending questions then pm the seller with your offer . Please be considerate of others and do not low-ball their items. (Making lower offers because your on a budget and trying to find nice things within that budget is one thing, making lower offers to turn around and try to resell to someone else for you to profit from will not be tolerated)
SOLD MEANS SOLD - If you are interested in an item, you should post "Sold, pending questions, or Sold, if this works!" If you only ask questions and someone else marks sold, then that person will get the item! USE MANNERS WE KNOW YOU HAVE THEM!
All questions and correspondence MUST be done by PM so that the picture doesn't keep moving to the top of feed.
ELECTRONICS/BATTERY OPERATED ITEMS: When purchasing these items, my advice would be to meet somewhere that you can make for certain that they work properly. We are in no way responsible for items sold, and sadly there are dishonest people in this world that will sell items that do not work!
PLEASE INSPECT WHAT YOU ARE BUYING THOROUGHLY! You always have the right to decline to purchase items after inspection. Better to decline to purchase than to later complain about the condition of the item(s).
Once an item is sold, buyer and seller must pm each other immediately, confirm when and where you will meet, etc in the private message. Please do not put meet places or times on here. If the buyer has not responded to your pm within 12 hours, comment on picture one more time and pm them again, if after 24 hours they have not responded,then you can mark item as still available or move to the next person.
*If you have a problem with someone DO NOT post it on the MAIN page! It needs to be private messaged to each other and dealt with that way! The main wall is not made to "call out people" or to "bully" people and neither will be tolerated. You will be deleted immediately along with the member posting!
*After a seller has sold an item to the buyer we are in NO WAY responsible for anything that happens at meet ups and swaps, nor can we make people meet up with you! If a buyer postpones meet after it has been set up, the seller has the right to sell to the next person in line - At the same time keep in mind we all have lives and the unexpected can be expected....a child will get sick, a car will break down, someone will have to work late...if someone misses a meet or has to re-schedule and they PM you try to work with them.
Three strikes and you are out! If you are reported as being a no show, selling an item that information was not properly disclosed (broke, smoke, etc), skipping the first buyer to mark an item sold, etc you will be put on our list, after 3 strikes you will be removed from the group. Marking items sold repeatedly and then backing out will not be tolerated also.
A NO SHOW NO CALL WILL GET YOU REMOVED IMMEDIATELY!
ONCE YOU HAVE READ THE RULES COMMENT BELOW WITH "READ" TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND!
