Market Place posting eligibility rules

In order to start a new thread in the Marketplace, you need to first meet the following criteria:
  • Have 10 posts or more (not including those in off-topic or Marketplace sections)
  • Been a member for 7 days or longer

Be sure to read the full sticky on how to post in this section.

Please do not send a message requesting that the rules be bent for you. The rules are there for everyone.

If you have just made your 10 posts and find you can't post in the marketplace, log out of EF and then log back in again. Keep in mind that if you've posted fluff content to make your 10 posts, you may find your posts deleted and possibly a temporary or permanent ban from the forum waiting for you.


Changes announced 22.05.2013

English Forum was never intended to be a selling site and the Market Place areas were designed to be an opportunity where active members can support each other with bargains and product sales.

We have decided that in order to encourage full participation in the site, we will impose a standard of "continued constructive participation" in order to allow the privilege of FREE marketplace posting to continue and to allow the site to become more active and less defined by its "sellers" versus "non-sellers" dynamic that we see today. This will largely be a subjective measure, but as a rough guide, Mods will expect to see at least as many non-MP posts as MP posts within a given period. And as always, Mods reserve the right to delete "fluff" posts which clearly only serve to increase post counts.

We will also continue to implement and tighten the wording on bumping such that items can only be advertised once and can only be "bumped" by the original poster if there is new information to add to the original post eg a price reduction.

Of course, for commercial sellers who do not wish to participate in the community, the option of paid advertising remains open.
