Clark County Trading Post

These are the rules and guidelines for posting on this site. All the rules in this group were voted on by the entire group. This group is for LOCAL independant buyers/sellers from CLARK COUNTY/Winchester, KY. Failure to read and follow the rules will get your posts removed, your membership removed, or even banned from the site.
It's a GREAT site, and it will be kept clutter-free.

Below the rules are the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS LIST.

BUY/SELL AT YOUR OWN RISK!
I'VE RECEIVED COMPLAINTS ABOUT SOME ITEMS BEING FAKE. ALSO, IF WE FIND OUT AN ITEM IS STOLEN, WE WILL WORK WITH THE POLICE TO RECOVER.

Rules:
1. There is a STRICT limit of 6 items/posts per day (24hr) permitted to be posted. If you have 7 posted, they will ALL be deleted. If you are selling ONE item that requires multiple views, (cars, applinces, Large items) then you can use an album for THAT item. It will count as one of your 6 posts. If you bump a previous days' post, THAT IS ONE OF YOUR 6 ITEMS per day. ((Example: You could bump 3 older items, and then POST 3 new ones. This prevents a lot of page clutter. If there is more than 6 items posted they will be DELETED THAT DAY.

2. Bumping or (...) to get bumped, OR making your own random comment on your own post to get bumped, can only be done AFTER a FULL 24hour period. Saying stuff like: "Still available", "Get this good deal","Still have this"."WHATEVER>>>> This is BUMPING, and will be held to the same rules above. Same rules aplly to repeat postings. (making more than one post of the SAME item) If you have an item (such as a car) that you want different angles.... make an album.
Having a "conversation" via the comment box is ALSO a bump. Limit 2 comments between the SAME person, after that, it's bumping, and same rules apply. Conversations should be handled via private message. If your settings don't allow it, it's not our fault. You can fix your own settings, exchange text numbers, chat on another page or whatever.... just not here. The other people on the page do not wish to see your conversation. ...and "bumping" your friends ad will get YOU deleted. We are now 5,000 buyers/sellers strong... this means you will SHARE this site. If you try to keep your stuff on top by clutter posting, or contimual bumping you may need to consider your own page. Please respect a limit of 5 bumps of any kind. If you've bumped the same item for over a month, and nobody cares, then nobody wants it. If nobody is interested, then consider dropping your price, or perhaps nobody wants the item. ((ps, don't get your friends to ask the same questions.... that'll get you and the friend removed.)) It's simple... share the page with 5,000 other sellers/buyers.

3. YOU MUST INCLUDE PRICE, SIZE, and ALL NEEDED INFORMATION ON EVERY POST. Adding it after will be considered as "bumping" as well. Adding information as soon as you post it, is ok. Even within a couple minutes is fine. Adding them later, IS A BUMP and will be deleted.

4. Do not slander, use abusive language, or just any rude, disrepsectful language. It isn't tolorated. Many people have been deleted. You will recieve NO warning prior to being banned permanently. Also, YOUR PROFILE PICTURE should not be offensive to anyone, nor should it show you topless (male/female), or kissing/making out.
While we here at Clark County Trading Post are happy you have someone to kiss, that does not mean we want/need to see that. Those members will be deleted. NO PDA profile pics please. LOLOL.

5. NO ADVERTISING for business's that recruit, offer money-making memberships, or weight loss plans. Examples: Mary Kay, Avon, Scentsy, Zija, Work-from-home, etc... If you post a picture of an item, it needs to be an item "IN YOUR POSSESSION".
You CAN and MAY sell your items from Mary Kay, Scentsy, and Zija stuff if you have overstock IN YOUR HOME. Not a link to another business page, no "taking orders", the company site, . Local pickups, not mail-order. SO: as an example, if you have products, you can sell them the same way as another item here. Take a picture, put a price, post it. NO STOCK PHOTOS or company/business photos of ANY KIND. Local Businesses CAN advertise their products and services here. Local business with no National or International ties are always welcomed here as we help promote all LOCAL small-business. ((Those National groups have enough business, and money that they will not need our page to survive.))

6. THIS IS A PROBLEM...... READ THIS, or you could get deleted FAST. MAKE SURE WHEN YOU SELL SOMETHING YOU REMOVE YOUR POST. If you cannot delete it, then STOP commenting on it altogether. DO NOT WRITE "SOLD" on it. This wastes space for new products. It is an ongoing problem that is being ignored, and is starting to get folks deleted. I don't want to delete members, I just want the page CLEAN.


7. Common courtesy to others sellers as well. Any infringement will be terms for removal from the site, and no future access will be granted.

Please adhere to the regulations. Thanks so much.
