Code of Conduct
Every member please make sure that you read the rules / guidelines prior to posting your items for sale.
1- BUSINESSES--Businesses are allowed ONE post in the Business Directory category. If you're not sure how to find the Business Directory, please message an admin BEFORE you post. NO ADVERTISING OF WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCTS, MAKE MONEY INTERNET SCHEMES OR GIFT CARD SPAMMING!!!
2- NO ADVERTISING OF ADULT “SEXUAL” PRODUCTS, WEAPONS, GUNS, AMMUNITION, OR WEAPON-RELATED PRODUCTS, ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, E-CIGARETTES, OR FOOD ITEMS!!!! This includes any and all types of baby formula. VarageSale also does not allow the selling of Replica items. If you are selling a name brand product, please be sure that it is authentic. (Buyer beware!) Please read the VarageSale guidelines of prohibited items: http://help.varagesale.com/article/371-what-items-are-not-allowed
3- DESCRIPTION--Posts must include the item’s description, price, and your location. Remember, this group is for Pine Bluff / White Hall, Arkansas, so if you’re selling from out of town, please make yourself available to meet inside these city limits. The better the description, the more likely you are to have a sale!
4- 24-HOUR RULE-- After 24 hours have passed, your item(s) will have a BUMP (blue arrow) button on them. This will allow you to BUMP (Bring Up My Post) your item in our group's wall.
5- NO “FREE” ITEM REQUESTS--We do NOT allow requests for free items. You can give items away, but do not request free items. We simply cannot verify every situation a person may be going through. We are not heartless, but this rule is a precaution to protect our members from possible scams. ALSO, if you give an item to an individual and that person posts it for sale, DO NOT ATTACK THAT PERSON or message the admins. When you give an item away, it is no longer your business. It becomes the other person’s possessions to do with what they wish.
6- BE RESPECTFUL--DO NOT comment on anyone else’s posts unless you are asking questions about their item or interested in buying it. Commenting with similar items you have for sale or where people can get things cheaper will get you automatically removed from this group, as it creates drama.
7- NO CURSING / SWEARING / RACIAL COMMENTS / DRAMA!!!!! WE DO NOT TOLERATE ANY OF IT!!! There will be a ZERO TOLERANCE policy on any of these types of comments. If you see any of the noted situations, DO NOT ADD TO IT!!! Do not give your 2-cents worth/input whether positive or negative. ALL MEMBERS that decide they need to add to or comment on the situation (other than tagging an admin) WILL BE REMOVED!!! If you have a problem with a member, please send one of the admins a private message.
8- DOUBLE CHECK BEFORE BUYING--Everyone, please make sure that you DOUBLE CHECK your items BEFORE you pay! We have had several complaints that someone bought something, got it home, and it didn't work/had pieces missing/wasn't what they expected. If you are buying electronics, especially cell phones, please make sure that they are in proper working order BEFORE you buy. We suggest that you arrange to meet at the carrier's office (Verizon, AT&T, etc.) to have the ESN of the phone checked BEFORE you pay. A bill of sale or a sales receipt is also a good idea. The admins are in no way responsible for the actions of people on this board. Please remember that this group is essentially a yard sale, and it's always BUYER BEWARE.
9- PROBLEMS WITH OTHER MEMBERS--If you have a problem with anyone on this swap shop, please MESSAGE an admin. DO NOT POST IT ON THE WALL!!! If you want to give us a heads up about something that may cause us problems, please do so in a private message to one of the admins.
10- ADMINISTRATORS--If you need to speak with an administrator, you can find us by clicking on ABOUT at the top of each page. Please message one of us. If you need an administrator to see a specific post, please TAG one of us in the post. Although we spend a lot of time reading posts, it is impossible for us to read them all, so if you would like for us to read a specific post, please make sure that you TAG one or more of us in the post itself. Or, send us a private message. If anyone sees any of the above going on, it is VERY possible that the admins have not seen it. Please feel free to message any of the admins privately, to alert us to a specific post. (Or tag us, whichever you prefer.) Private messages will remain private.
11- ITEM STATUS--YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DELETE YOUR SOLD ITEMS! Instead, please change the item's status to SOLD. VarageSale will automatically delete all sold items after 7 days. You can use the item's status button to change to Sale Pending or Sold. This is a very unique option, and one of the many reasons that the admins decided to go with VarageSale.
12- STICK TO ARRANGEMENTS--If you make arrangements to meet someone to sell/buy an item, either meet them or contact them at least 2 hours prior to make other arrangements/cancel. Failure to show 2 or more times will result in banning from our group.
We have managed this page for a long time so please remember that, although you may not like one or more of our rules, each one of them are in place for a specific reason. If you have any questions about any of the rules, please contact an administrator. All private messages are kept confidential between the messenger and all administrators.
