    Reminder on selling non-personal items on AOC

    As a reminder to all people selling items on AOC - unless you are selling personal items (as in your old wheels, seats, etc.) then selling for profit on AOC requires you have trader status within the club.

    It's a mind-numbing task keeping on top of new 'traders', and we will never manage to track and contact everyone who is trading at the same time, however we are getting there slowly. If you are not willing to participate in this trader scheme then your threads will be removed.

    Even if you make things personally to sell for profit, this is still not classed as a personal item!

    Plenty of stuff happens where you can't access so things do happen. Drop me a PM if you have any specific issues.

    Personaly,
    I don't care if a member is a trader or not, so long as they help ppls out with good parts,
    There are certain members on here i would realy trust Turbochris (simply because he was mentioned is amongst them), and a lot of others,

    It all boils down to wether or not the sellers have a good reputation to keep, and to be trusted to fulfil a good deal,

    Usually time tells,

    Unfortunatly as on ebay there are always ppls out for what they can get,

    A big plus for the monitering , for the member protection

    That's what it is all about Brian, plenty of highly reputable/trustworthy traders on here, many who give as much back to AOC as they get out of it.

    Yes but let's not forget this place doesn't run on free air. Our bank balance isn't all that healthy, it costs $250 dollars for the hosting alone per month. So why should we give a platform for people to come and sell products for profit when they give little or in most cases nothing back in return?

    We have always allowed members that are active around the forum and at shows and meets the ability to use the classifieds as they want. This will stay but we are going tighten up massively.

    The costs are not high at all, and to be honest a simple donation to the club would surface for most, but when people are using the forum as a source of income they should be respectful of the running costs.
