Exclamation HOW TO: Creating classified ads

How To: Creating classified ads


***If you are new, you need to be a premium member or be a member for 90 days to post an ad, see this thread for more info
CLICK HERE***


Step One: Before you post

Please aquaint yourself with our rules, as well as general forum rules there is a specific section just for classified posting
Step Two: Selection Section

Select the proper section to post your item. Note the descriptions below each section with some examples.

In this instance we will be selecting FS: General Subaru


Step Three: Creating Thread

Note the announcements at the top of every section, these as well as stickies will provide you with valuable information.

Select the New Thread button



Step Four: Selection State Prefix

Now you will see the Post New Thread template, note the added drop down box for selecting your state. Select the state you are in (this is required to post an ad)



Step Five: Item Description

Next fill in a descriptive title for what you are selling. After that fill out the box below with a description of what you are selling along with pictures. Please provide the most accurate information you have, do not lie!! Scammers will be removed from the site.



Step Six: Adding images & ad thumbnail

Adding images is very important to selling your item. First it serves as proof that you actually have what you are selling, some members will add a hand written piece of paper with their username on it as additional proof. Images also allow perspective buyers to see the condition of your item. If you dont have an image in your post I can guarantee that it will be the first thing asked for.

Your first option and easiest is to upload an image via the Attachment Manager. This option will also allow you to add a thread thumbnail like you see some members using when searching through the main classified forums.

Scroll down to Additional Options and select Manage Attachments



You will then get a pop up screen. Add your images, note the file size limits below. Your first image will be the thumbnail that others see in the main forum section. After you have selected all the images you want (max of 4) click upload.



you can also attach images that have been uploaded to image sharing sites such as photobucket or imageshack. Use the icon to attach an image

Step Seven: Post Icon & Submitting/Previewing post

Next you can select a post icon for your ad. Lastly you can either preview the post or submit your thread.



If you have any problems, need an ad closed, or thread title changed please post in here

Question Q & A and Unethical Buyer/Seller Titles

I get an error when I try and create a thread, why?
Most likely you are a new member, to post a sale ad you need to be a member for 90 days OR be a premium member. See THIS link for more information


What do I do if someone is saying things in my ad that dont seem right?
please report the post, see HERE for a how to on reporting post

I think I may have been scammed, what do I do?
Please create a thread in the Member Review/Scammer Reports section. Please provide as much info as you can. PLEASE leave OUT any personal information i.e. names and address's.

Unethical Buyer/Seller Titles


The Unethical titles have been brought about for members that didnt exactly scam someone but left a bad impression on the site. They are now required to have this custom title.

I noticed a member has the title, what did they do?
click on the title, that will direct you to the thread in the buyer beware section that explains what happened.

I have received a title, is it forever?
Well that is up to you and the moderation team. Each case is different but we ask that you create a thread in the private support forum. This will allow just you and the moderation team to discuss the terms.

What happens if I change it?
When you received the title with it came a warning. While premium members can change their title you are not to. If you do change it you will receive a (10 point) infraction for each offense.
