Classified Ad Rules - Read me before posting a classified.

Rules or Recommendations for Posting Classified Ads

1. Do not post your opinions of the breeder, breeder's animals, or the breeder's website in this forum. If you have issues with a breeder you need to contact them directly to resolve those issues.

2. Chins and Hedgies is not responsible for any transactions that occur from a listing on its web site. However, CnH will not tolerate members who do not follow through with their transactions. When the staff becomes aware that a member has become a habitually poor performer when it comes to their business practices, the staff will immediately permanently suspend that memberís use of all classified sections on CnH. While the classified section on CnH remains a buyer beware experience, we do feel the need to somewhat protect our members from those that seem to want to continue to not follow through or make things right with their buyers.

3. Only posts by those that are interested in purchasing the product/animal listed are allowed. Comments are not allowed and will be deleted (i.e. posts stating how cute, your pet looks like mine, I wish I could get him, and especially testimonials) and a warning sent. Repeated abuse will result in a banning from the classifieds sections completely. The classifieds are free for forum members, but use of said classifieds will be at the discretion of the administration.

4. Do not make disparaging comments about price. You may respectfully inquire to see if there is scope for negotiation but please remember that the person placing the advert has the right to set his/her price. If it is not to your budget, then leave it at that.

5. Classifieds are purged on a regular basis. Any threads whose last post date is later than 30 days may be purged.

6. Catalog posts in the classifieds section will be culled periodically to control size and accuracy. Those posts that are older than 30 days may be removed.

7. If the item/animal you are selling is sold or is no longer up for sale, please notify a moderator so that the post can be closed or removed.

8. Posts which are suspected of selling items illegally or otherwise unethically may be edited or removed from the forum without warning and/or the user responsible may be removed from the forums. CnH will not be held liable for any loss of business and/or reputation by removal of said posts and/or users.

9. By posting in the classified forum, you agree to the conditions contained within these rules.

10. In the event that a classified thread starter feels it necessary to add a "bump" post to the thread (to bring it back up in the forum listing), said posts are limited to one every 24-48 hours. Excessive bump posts or posts made in contravention to this rule, will be removed and the poster issued with a warning

11. Please limit the number of active classified ads to 3. An ad may contain more than 1 item.

12. Please do not post items for sale unless those items are owned by you. We do not allow third party sales or brokering on CnH. This raises too many issues for the owners of this forum if a sale should go bad, due to people complaining to the owners. We are NOT responsible for any sales at any time and will not be responsible for brokering.

We also recommend that you take a look at the following recommendations for posting or responding to ads.

1. Include your location, price, and the sex, color, age, and any special needs required by the animal.

2. Always get a telephone number and/or mailing address of the person from whom you are buying. When dealing with people you do not know, remember the principle of "buyer beware."

3. If you are selling, check your local laws to ensure that you are in compliance with any and all laws (national, state or local) governing the breeding or sale of exotic pets. If you are buying, it is your responsibility to ensure that the seller is in compliance with all laws. It is also advisable to get recommendations from others as to the ethics and quality of the seller.

4. Some animals are not legal in all areas. Please check your local and state regulations before purchasing an animal. Some areas have been known to seize and euthanize banned pets.

Classifieds posted must be within the limit of the law. This means if you're posting a hedgehog classified you must be a USDA licensed breeder, or have under 3 breeding females and you MUST reside in a legal state. You may be asked to send your license number or a copy of your license to a moderator or administrator for verification. Classifieds posted that do not comply with this rule will be deleted.

--- Added 10/8/2011 ---

The classifieds sections are intended to be a facility of contributing members for Chins-n-Hedgies members. It is an added benefit to your membership and should be treated as a privilege. This forum is here first and foremost as a place for chinchilla and hedgehog owners to get help, help others and talk about their pets. Any member that wishes to use the classifieds section must be a contributing member to the forum.

Forum staff will be monitoring the classifieds and any post made to a classified section by a non-contributing member will be removed, please do not report non-contributing posts. Continued posting my result in your access being removed.

Do I qualify as a contributing member?
You may post to one of the classifieds section if you meet any of the following:

1. User who has been a member for 30 days AND at least 10 contributing type posts monthly (the last 30 days) to one of the chinchilla or hedgehog sections. "Aw cute" type posts do not qualify as a contributing post.

2. Users who have paid for banner advertising will be allowed to post to the classifieds section, regardless of their monthly post count.

Exclusions: The Rescue & Swap and Want ad sections are excluded in the contributing member rule. If you need to rehome your chinchilla or hedgehog and are asking a small rehoming fee ($25 or less), you will be allowed to post.

This rule goes into effect 10/15/2011 and applies to all members (both new and old).

THESE RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.
