We have taken all the rules from the separate buy and sell forums on the vancouver side and merged them into one list so it is easier for you to see what the rules are. We have done this because on the island side we deal with all the same things just in one forum, as we are not big enough to separate the forums yet.
This is the new updated list of rules.
SELLERS: Use proper titles.
Threads will be closed without warning if you use incorrect titles. Here are the proper titles incase you were unaware: FS:
for sale WTB:
want to buy WTT/FT:
want to trade/for trade. FREE:
self explanatory! One bump/TTT a day.
This means that if you post an ad you can not bump it the same day you posted it, and only once per day after that. Answering questions is fine, but please use the quick quote option to answer multiple questions instead of postwhoring. You MUST post an asking price
(except in cases of trades).
No throw me an offer BS. If you have a parts car for sale please make an effort to at least post prices on the major parts if you are not selling it as a whole. If you do this we will let you get away with a few parts not being priced, but if asked, post the price for everyone to see. No auction style threads.
We're not ebay. The classifieds system on RS is not set up for an auction style format like ebay. With RS, the seller has to keep to their word on end dates, prices etc. No offering of your "services"
Such as sub box making etc.. You need to be a sponsor to do that. *see link below about becoming a sponsor. No Continued Personal Profit/Spamming.
This constitutes the selling of goods for profit: as in more than 1, you being a shop or business, or just selling a single item for huge profit. Or in laymans terms: NO PROFITING. PERIOD.
You need a license/permit to sell on Revscene. *see link below about becoming a sponsor. No non-sponsor retailers or stores may post ads in the forum.
There is a separate licensed dealer forum for this kind of stuff. **See "2.01" here for details on becoming a sponsor.** DO NOT post any links or any information from other buy & sell sites or forums.
This demeans our buy and sell forum. If you want to sell your stuff elsewhere do so without taking away from our forums. You are only allowed to have TWO(2) threads in each buy and sell forum at one time.
For example, if your selling things like an amp, deck or subs, create one thread titled "FS: Amp/Deck/Subs".... Do not create one for each, as this clutters up the forum. Anyone selling engines MUST post the VIN
(Vehicle Identification Number) that is on the block and approximate milage. NO EXCEPTIONS. Engine link No "WTB Engine" threads. http://www.revscene.net/forums/showt...hreadid=263702 Anyone seen selling more than one car under 1 username will get banned
This includes "selling for a friend". Pick one car and sell it, when that one is sold you may post a new one.
*when selling anything "for a friend", you must post your friends contact information. This includes name and phone number. No exceptions. http://www.revscene.net/forums/showt...hreadid=298179
BUYERS: Stay on topic.
Ask Off topic questions through pm's. No "joking" with friends. Don't ask why someone is selling something. These type of things will get you points. This is not a chat area, use the Private messaging system or MSN/ICQ for that. Ask questions in the threads. Conduct business through private messaging.
No one needs to see when and where you are meeting to finalize the deal, this is what the PM system is for. No flaming.
No flames will be tolerated here. Negotiations and comments about price (within reason) are okay. If you're complaining about a price, be reasonable. Have justification like if Future Shop is selling for less. No lowballing.
Pretty simple. If someone is asking $1500 for a car, offering them $200 is lowballing. No group buys.
Group Buys are not allowed unauthorized. This type of purchase falls under our normal advertising rates. The organizer must purchase a Buy/Sell Advertising Dealer License or a Group Buy License. Refer to Profit 2.0. This is unfair to legitimate sponsors who do purchase licenses and obey our rules.
EVERYONE: No multiple accounts.
One account per computer. Those members who are found with more than one account on the message board can be removed without warning. There should be no reason why a person should have more than one account. Its uses up our space and creates anonymity within a community. No illegal items.
This includes: Stolen goods, warez, CD-keys (other than when accompanying the original CD), movies, videos, guns, porn, babies, drugs, drug paraphernalia, weapons, whatever. This is not the place for this sort of thing. No thread hijacking.
Meaning selling your crap in someone elses thread. Do NOT post your own ads or links to your own ad in someone else's FS or WTB thread. Please remember to close your thread when it is done
To do this; post that it has been sold if you were selling something, or say no longer looking if you have found what you wanted to buy. The mods will then close your thread for you. Use the "report post to a moderator" button when you see a problem. IE: Abusive members, whoring, stolen goods offered, SPAMMING etc.

Rules are here.
The newbies are spoiling it for the seniors who are following the rules. NEWBIES OR NEW ACCOUNTS READ AND FOLLOW RULES.. or ME and the PATROLLERS WILL COME DOWN 2X STRICT..
There are more than 10 000 registered users on REVscene.net. We could care less if we boot one or two violators who aren't willing to follow our Buy and sell rules around here.
If you have any questions about the rules, please PM Monster Hui or myself.
