1. Save the Drama for your Mama
Be respectful and kind. Treat others as you wish to be treated, and if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all. Many of the rules below are extensions of this principle. If you have a problem with another member, contact the admin and allow them to resolve.
2. Prohibited Items
Alcohol, drugs, tobacco, firearms, weapons, counterfeits, adult/pornographic items, illegal items, expired items, recalled items, opened food, links to or advertising of other selling platforms (Small Business Directory posts may include a website link, see below).
Admins reserve the right to delete prohibited items without notice.
These restrictions are VS policy. http://help.varagesale.com/article/371-what-items-are-not-allowed
3. Practice Full Disclosure
Include accurate description of condition, if an item is cross-posted, conditions of sale, etc. Be honest about what you are selling.
4. Order of Interest
Consider buyers in the order they post interest. A question about the item indicates interest. Buyers should contact sellers in a timely manner. Please allow 12 hours for responses before moving to the next person in line.
5. Be Reliable
Life happens, but please make every attempt to communicate if you cannot meet when arranged. Let the other party know as soon as possible that you cannot make it and reschedule.
6. No auctioning or outbidding
Discuss price in PMs, not in the comments. Keep it friendly.
7. No hijacking
If you are ISO or selling the same item, make your own post about it. Don't comment and carry out a sale in another person's post.
8. Small Businesses
Small Businesses may post ONE ad in the Small Business Directory category with a link to a website or Facebook page. They may post pictures of products currently for sale or advertise promotions by posting in the comments of their business ad. Do not post merchandise in any other category.
9. Asking for Donations
If you or someone you know is in need of donated items, you may post ONCE in the "Discussions" thread with a description and request. DO NOT comment or message a person asking them to donate, trade or significantly reduce their price. Admins do not screen donation requests. Giver beware. Once the item is in the other person's hands it is theirs to do with as they please.
10. Manage your stuff
Update your posts and mark sold items. Items marked "sold" will automatically delete after 7 days. Be sure to update items that you have cross posted.
11. No double posting
Post your item once. Choose the best category the first time. Post additional pictures in the comments of the post or make a photo collage. Duplicate posts may be deleted without notice.
12. ISO posts
ISO posts can be posted using the "Post Items" button. Upload a stock image of the item you are looking for or use the stock "I'm looking for" image in the "Admin Tips" category. Choose "I am looking for this item" before submitting your post. Do not use "Discussions" to post ISO. See here for more: http://help.varagesale.com/article/90-how-to-label-a-post-iso-in-search-of

Please do not post personal information in comments or posts. Use PMs to discuss pick-up time/location and exchange addresses.
