    Ok, seeing as though people cannot follow simple rules, here is a post about these rules:

    Trading Post Just Commodores provides a section for members to advertise their cars for sale, parts for sale, general items for sale or wanted to buys. This system is only available to members who have been a part of JC for 90 days or more and have contributed 20 posts or more. This is to prevent people signing up just to sell items and leaving again. It also helps in trusting who you are buying from. People who abuse this system will nto be allowed to continue using it. We also ask that you do not make pointless posts such as "Wow if i had the money i would buy it". Any off topic chat will result in an infraction being issued. If you are unsure of the rules for the Trading section please read the following: New Trading Rules - ALL USERS MUST READ AND OBEY OR YOUR POST WILL BE DELETED

    Chat In Trading Post

    Just a note to all users. KEEP IDLE CHAT OUT OF HERE. If you are not asking a question to the seller about their item DO NOT POST. This includes comments about how nice their car is and wishing them good luck with the sale. If you wish to compliment someone on something DO IT VIA PM.

    There is a few certain repeat offenders that have caught my eye. I am sure you will know who you are. If anyone is caught breaking this rule you will be given a warning. Second strike you will have Trading Post privileges taken away from you for a month.

    Please see some examples below:

    1. 'Nice car, good luck with the sale'
    This is pointless, it does not achieve anything and wastes time.

    2. 'If only you live (insert location) i would buy it.'
    Same as above. They dont live near you so too bad.

    3. 'I wish i had more money to afford this'
    Well you dont have more money. If you want to work out some sort of deal with the seller regarding payment fair enough, but wishing for more money is pointless.

    4. 'Geez, thats 3 times what it is actually worth'
    If someone wants to sell something at an extremely high price then let them. The money doesnt come out of your pocket and it is none of your business.

    5. Asking for pictures IS allowed but only needs to be asked ONCE, not by 6 different people.

    6. 'My best friends girl friends sisters boy friends mates uncle has one of these.'
    Why bother? Once again, a waste of time.


    The above mentioned examples are only a sample of the pointless chat that cleaners/mods/admin have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. It wastes our time deleting it so dont waste your time posting it.

    Thank you for reading and happy trading

    Failure to adhere to this will result in you not being able to post in this section until we decide otherwise. It is getting tiring having to tell people over and over again.
    So please, it is a simple rule, follow it yeah?

    Whats this new for sale "approving" process?
    I posted a new thread this morning selling an item and then it said "Thankyou for posting, your post will be added once its approved by a moderator' !
    12hrs and still waiting?
    Ive never noticed a problem with selling items, why was this new procedure in place, and is it really necessary?

    moderators have lives too. we dont catch every moderated thread, have patience. we dont get paid for this.


    in regards to the new approval process, too many people ignore the trading section rules, all of which are stickied at the top of each trading section.

    if we find that a thread doesnt meet the (somewhat simple and easy to follow) requirements, then it wont be approved.


    oh yeh, 12.04pm isnt morning :p

    Yes, it is necessary, we had much feedback regarding this area.

    In fact, many more changes will be happening inside that area also, such as people ignoring rules will be unable to view the section.

    Basically, if your thread(parts for sale) is not posted like the example here:
    http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...e/58774-starting-new-thread-use-template.html
    and here(Cars for sale):
    http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/cars-sale/43995-starting-new-thread-use-template.html

    it will be deleted. If you think it is too much trouble, then do not bother posting. We are sick of people advertising links to other sites etc and having no normality whatsoever.

    I would also like to see advertisements on behalf of friends of friends banned. Its extremely annoying to go into the For Sale section to be told to "contact this guy". Posting quick and easy questions in the thread is sometimes easier than making phone calls to people who arent even on the forum.

    also can it be made a rule that a price and location/suburb be shown. it is very annoying when people say they are from qlD or sa for example and do not list what part.

    If people actually filled out the template as shown we wouldn't have issues... but some people just can't be bothered.

    yeah but that template should have been made a long long time ago, and also full notification of all users should get updated rules, mass send pm to all, the rules are all over the place!!! there a re constantly new people on theis forum and not a lot of the newbies know what the deal is!!!!!!!!

    Get it right!

    Jesus, not only are you a goose in PM, you are a goose here as well.

    Did you actually look when those templates were made?

    2006.

    Thats right, 2006, so quit the excuses.

    Bloody hell, what is with some people of late.

    I made a mistake in my posting and got hammered for it by hakhawk.
    Basically I was looking for stock standard VE Omega steel rims that someone in Perth might be throwing out after upgrading or were taking up room in their shed and would let me have them free.
    Hakhawk tells me that even though I don't want to buy them I should post in the "wanted to buy" section.
    To me this is not logical,however if this is actually the case then I will withdraw from this forum with my tail between my legs.
    I await either salvation or another hammering.

    was far from a hammering, but if you want one...


    you dont have to leave the forum just because you dont get your own way. theres more to the forum than just looking for free wheels.

    Yea bring it on bitch!
    I admitted to being inexperienced and making a mistake both here and in my PM.
    As you have seen by my posts I have respected this forum and it's members.I have asked when I didn"t know and offered advice when I knew what I was talking about.
    I have not sworn at anyone or attemted to belittle anyone just because they have a different view of something.
    It has nothing to do with leaving because I can't get my way.It is about fairness.
    You may be a fat controller on this forum but that does not give you the right to come down on someone for making their first mistake.A person that abuses their power is indeed a small person.
    Again,if you look at my posts even you will see that I don't think this forum is only about "free wheels".
    So how about letting someone else voice their opinion before you delete/close or whatever else.

    lol, hakky is the least likely mod to abuse his power (not that any of them do, just ask them)

    You say you havn't called anyone names, yet your first line says 'bring it on bitch'. You def wont get your way when talking like this.

    An infraction is basically a warning. to tell you that you did wrong and not to do it again.

    Pretty simple.
