Hi friends, 

 

I am a volunteer for Dreams to Reality Foundation. This is a wonderful forum and thanks for making this possible. 

 

The Foundation has some German items from WW2 to sell and wondered how does a new member get approval to post on for-sale items? Is there a thread you can point me to? Thank you.

FOR SALE SECTION (WHEN AVAILABLE)

RULE 10.0 - Age Requirement

All members must be at least 18 years of age in order to use the FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED sections (When Available). World Militaria Forum's administrators reserve the right to suspend and/or revoke any member's privileges within these sections in the event the member is believed to be under 18 years of age.

RULE 10.1 - Posting Requirement

Each member must have at least 30 SUBSTANTIVE posts before the system will allow the member to post an ad in the FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED sections (no one or two word posts such as "That's great," etc.). The granting of use permissions is automatically done by the system. So, as soon as the 30th post is made, permission will be granted and the member may post his / her ads. Posts that appear to have been done solely to boost the post count as fast as possible will not be counted.

This posting rule does not apply to buying or replying to ads. All members in good standing, regardless of the number of posts, can respond to ads and purchase items via these ads.

RULE 10.2 - General Ad Rules
A key factor in our FOR SALE section is that the SELLER is reponsible for delivery of the purchased item. If the buyer does not receive an item they paid for the seller must provide a refund. Sellers are advised to use shipping methods that include proof of delivery.

Items posted in the FOR SALE section MUST contain (1) a general description of and/or a picture of the ACTUAL item for sale and (2) the price you are asking for the item. Other forum members may not make negative comments about the pricing of an item or the FOR SALE listing in general, but if you believe an item is falsely or inaccurately represented, please contact a moderator or direct your comments to the poster through the PM messaging system.

RULE 10.2(a) - Pricing, payment & shipment

It is prefered that all FOR SALE ads be listed in US Dollars only. However, it is not against the rules to include a foreign currency price within the add. If you chose to do so, the foreign price MUST be accompanied by a price quoted in US Dollars. We understand that an exact translation is not possible when converting the foreign price to the price in US Dollars. However, we ask that you please include a close approximate. You may not require that buyers pay as PayPal "gift" as this limits buyers ability to seek PayPal refunds if the transaction goes wrong. Any ad requiring using the PayPal gift option will be deleted. Also buyers should not ask sellers to list a purchase as a "gift" or lie about the value on official custom forms as this requires a seller to commit perjury. NOTE: If seller has a policy restricting shipment to US, Europe, etc. please include what country or countries you will ship to in your ad. If you will only ship to the US then include that in your listing.

RULE 10.2[b] - Auctioning

There will be NO auctioning.

RULE 10.2[c] - "Best Offer" Phrases

The use of the statements "best offer," "price on request", or similar phrases is acceptable as long as those phrases are accompanied by a stated price. For example, "$80 OBO" ($80 or best offer) is acceptable but "OBO / Or Best Offer" without a price is not.

RULE 10.2(d) - Lists of Items

If you have a list of items for sale, please post that list on the board and do NOT post a Word or Corel document for users to download.

RULE 10.2(e) - Outside Links to Websites

In this section, we do not allow the posting of general links to outside websites for additional pictures or where other militaria, not listed on this site, is for sale. This feature is for the protection of our members. Without this restriction here, some users would abuse this by posting innocent looking links to viruses or inappropriate content. Additionally, in the case of fraud, modify or remove item pictures on the outside website.

RULE 10.2(e) - THIS SECTION INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

RULE 10.2(f) - Medal of Honor

There will be NO buying, selling, and/or trading of the Medal of Honor, which includes the medal, ribbon, button, and/or rosette. NO EXCEPTIONS

World Militaria Forum is hosted by a US company and its owners are located in the US. Therefore, we are fully governed by the laws of the United States. Under Title 18 United States Code Sec. 1001 (another section deals with buying), it is basically illegal to buy, sell, and/or trade the Medal of Honor medal, ribbon, button, or rosette. The law is broad enough that, although you are the one listing the item for trade, the government may subject even the venue (i.e. WMF) and its owners to both fines and jail time. For obvious reasons, we do not wish to take such a risk. Thus, all For Sale ads attempting to buy, sell, and/or trade the medal, ribbon, button, and/or rosette will be immediately removed and the user may be subject to a warning for a For Sale Section rule violation.

For more information on the law, please see: Title 18 United States Code. Sec. 1001, entitled "Statements or entries generally," June 25, 1948, ch. 45, 62 Stat. 749.



RULE 10.3 - Sellers Backing Out

Once a written contract is made (email and PM's count as a writing), we strongly encourage sellers to follow through with the transaction. If not, sellers could subject themselves not only to penalties via the WMF board, but also civil and criminal penalties in their state.



RULE 10.3(a) - Sellers

Using the FOR SALE section for free "for sale" ads is a privilege of our membership and NOT a right. Sellers backing out of transactions will be subject to punishment, including (but not limited to) removal of all of the seller's current FOR SALE listings.

Remember, backing out of deals makes not only the seller look bad, but reflects poorly on the board and its owners. It also breeds lots of distrust among members. Therefore, we at WMF take such issues very seriously.



RULE 10.3[b] - Buyers

WMF cannot force members to complete transactions. Where a seller has backed out of a transaction after a sale contract has been made, we request that you please send the WMF Administration or the For Sale Section Moderator notification of the issue.

If there is sufficient evidence to illustrate that a seller has in fact backed out of a deal after there was a contract, the seller will be subject to punishment, including (but not limited to) removal of all of the seller's current FOR SALE listings.



RULE 10.3[c] - Exceptions

Please be aware this section does not apply to incidents where the buyer has contracted to purchase an item and then fails to deliver payment in the manner and/or time specifically stated within the original buyer-seller agreement.



RULE 10.4 - Buyers Backing Out

Once a written contract is made (email and PM's count as a writing), we strongly encourage buyers to follow through with the transaction. If not, buyers could subject themselves not only to penalties via the WMF board, but also civil and criminal penalties in their state.



RULE 10.4(a) - Sellers

WMF cannot force members to complete transactions. Where a buyer has backed out of a transaction after a sale contract has been made, we request that you please send the WMF Administration or the appropriate FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED section moderator notification of the issue.

If there is sufficient evidence to illustrate that a buyer has in fact backed out of a deal after there was a contract, the buyer will be subject to punishment, including (but not limited to) removal of all privileges within the FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED sections.



RULE 10.4[b] - Buyers

Buyers are encouraged to follow through with all transactions in a prompt and courteous manner according to their agreement with the seller.

Remember, backing out of deals makes not only the buyer look bad, but reflects poorly on the board and its owners. It also breeds lots of distrust among members. Therefore, we at WMF take such issues very seriously.



RULE 10.4© - Exceptions

Please be aware this section does not apply to incidents where the seller has contracted to purchase an item and then fails to deliver the item in the manner and/or time specifically stated within the original buyer-seller agreement.



RULE 10.5 - Sold Items

Upon notification via at least one of the following two methods, the FOR SALE section moderator will then move the sold item to the SOLD ITEMS subforum. This way, only unsold items will remain in the FOR SALE section.

RULE 10.6 - Penalties

Generally, there are no penalties associated with violations of the FOR SALE section rules. However, depending on the nature of the infraction and/or the user's history of violations, WMF does reserve the right to immediately suspend and/or ban any member posting in violation of this section.

RULE 10.7 - Ad Expiration

Ads are available for at least 30 days. WMF has a function set to automatically delete all For Sale ads that have not received any posts in the last 30 days. If a member's item has not sold and/or the member's ad is deleted due to no posts in 30 days, the member is certainly free to repost a For Sale ad for the item.

This feature does not affect items in the SOLD ITEMS section, as those are held indefinitely as reference in that section. It also does not affect the FEEDBACK section.

RULE 10.8 - Excessive Ads

We recommend and strongly encourage members to keep their FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED posts to perhaps four to six per week. While this is generally a self-enforcing, honor system policy, we reserve the right to warn or revoke FOR SALE, TRADE, and/or WANTED section or MEMBERSHIP privileges for anyone who makes what we deem to be excessive use of this section. And, we will also do such reviews for members who use only the FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED sections and do not contribute to the main sections of the forum.
No more than 10 (ten) ads per member at any one time. The WMF owner and administration reserves the right to remove any ad for any reason at their discretion with no prior warning.
Remember, the FOR SALE, TRADE, and WANTED sections are a convenience for forum members and not a place for free hosting of your large militaria store.

RULE 10.8(A) - Excessive "Bumping" of Ads

We strongly encourage members to allow for a minimum of 7 days prior to "bumping" a post, or making price reductions. If the administrators and/or moderators of WMF feel this rule has been violated, offending threads may be locked or edited.


RULE 11.0 - THIS SECTION INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

RULE 11.2 - Medal of Honor

There will be NO buying, selling, and/or trading of the Medal of Honor, which includes the medal, ribbon, button, and/or rosette. NO EXCEPTIONS

Ads are available for at least 30 days. WMF has a function set to automatically delete all Trade ads that have not received any posts in the last 30 days. If a member's item has not been traded and/or a member's ad is deleted due to no posts in 30 days, the member is certainly free to repost the item for trade.

RULE 11.5 - Additional Rules

The above rules in this subdivision do not include each and every rule applicable for ads and requirements.

Please see above rules, especially the FOR SALE SECTION Rules, for other rules that also apply to this section.
