Friendly Reminder.

It seems that some people have not been following the TOS for the classifieds.
Especially when it comes to replying to your own add.
Thanks,
Trevor

Here they are for as an FYI,

Do NOT post more then 1 ad for each animal(s) you have for sale.

Do NOT reply to your own threads to move your post up, you may reply only to say that the animal(s) have been sold so we can remove it.

If you reply to your own ad it will be removed.

When your animal(s) has sold, please state that its been sold in the thread so the post can be deleted.

If you are a bigger breeder or sell alot of animals in our classifieds, it is encouraged that you support the site and buy a banner ad, make a donation and/or upgrade your photohosting account.

These classifieds are for exotic animals ONLY! Domestic animal threads are not allowed in the classifieds.

The commercial sale of dry goods is strictly phohibited in the classifieds.

Do not spam the classifieds with excess ad's for the animals you already have posted for sale.

If you registered with a fake or unknown email adress i suggest you change it to one that you actually use or you wont get any emails from people inquiring about your animals.

Buy responsibly! sSNAKESs.com is not responsible for anything bought or sold in our classifieds.

Thank You,
sSNAKESs.com Administration.

Just an observation... but it doesn't say anything about replying to your own ad if the price changes. (ie, "Ok, no one's taking it, so I'll drop it from $250 to $200 and throw in pictures of Trevor french kissing a pit bull!") or something like that. But that's just an example. I swear. Seriously.

Yes that rule has been changed, I guess it hasn't been changed in text (until now ). In addition to replying if the animal(s) has been sold, it is also permissible to reply in the event anything changes such as price, new pictures, etc.

Invictus that's no way to talk about your mom! Shame on you.
The reminder was intended to remind people about replying simply to bump their post.
Thanks,
Trevor

Whats worse is those who are looking to buy or sell, but give no info as to where they are located. Its nice to know whether its worth a persons time or not to reply in the beginning based on location. My big pet peeve anyhow. Mark

Oh man, that's my biggest peeve about classified ads too. If I don't know where you are how can I know what anything is gonna cost? Which brings me to my second biggest peeve: people that aren't selling anything but are just taking offers and don't even give you a starting point for a price. "I have a snake. It is brown. Make me an offer." It's your damned creature, why don't you place an ad when you know how much money you expect to get for it. These two groups of people are way more annoying than the "ad bumpers". Even rednecks selling cars in Auto Trader can manage to tell you where they are, the make, model and year and name a price.

If I could make the rules for the ads you would be required to fill in a box for location, type of animal and asking price. Anything less doesn't constitute an ad. Those of us still suffering through life with a dial-up connection would certainly appreciate less clutter and BS.

The free classifieds are a great feature on this site so it's hard to complain but I think the fact that they are free comes with the drawback that people will clutter it with crap.

What would be really nice is being able to see location, pictures, weight, shedding and feeding schedule for X number of months, etc. etc.

But the average post is "I need to get rid of blahblah. Will trade.", then they bump when no one is interested.
