    Default READ: GL/GSA/other auction posts (2007 Version)

    ***** This thread was started in 2007. Rule additions have been made since then*****
    Things have changed and have been updated.
    Please review the current Forum rules.
    Here is the 2013 version
    http://www.steelsoldiers.com/showthr...licy-MUST-READ
    also read all the Forum rules at the top of the page

    And for those that need a refreshment of the newer Auction rules:

    Auction Postings: Please abide by the following rules concerning the posting of auction information in the forums:
    • Do NOT post about future or current GL/GP(GovPlanet)/GSA/eBay (including items for sale in buy-it-now formats)/local/city/state/Federal/estate auctions. You may post about any auction after the auction is closed.
    • Do not post links to auction photos.
    • Do not post links to GL/GP(GovPlanet)/GSA(or other sites)that have links that quit working after a short period of time. Save the image to your PC and then attach it to your post.
    • Do NOT post links to current eBay auctions or Craig's List ads that are not your own. You may post a link to your own auction/ad only if it is in an information/discussion thread about your vehicle/item. Do not start a post in the Conversations forum or your vehicle specific forum just to announce your auction/ad.
    • No collusion as specified above.
    ************************************


    Well, after much thought and discussion, I wanted to re-address this issue. There is not going to be a vote. There is not going to be a committee formed to discuss this. There is not going to be a special forum set up for auction posts. I don't want any feedback via post, PM or email as there was more than enough last time. This is the way I want it so don't email or PM anyone else about it. These apply to auctions of any type.


    1. NO COLLUSION. This means NO posts where we share our GL numbers, posts where we organize bidding for or against each other, or posts where we say what trucks we are bidding on and promise not to bid on each other's trucks. Members involved in collusion will be warned and then banned if the warning is ignored.

    2. NO FRIVOLOUS AUCTION POSTING: This means no posting auction links just for the sake of posting. If the item is easily found using a search engine on an auction site, don't post it. SS members are not interested in your every auction whim on a daily basis. [strikethrough]If you feel an item is just so unique or exciting that you just have to share, fine, go ahead, but use your common sense. Posting links is OK. [/strickethrough] Posting a link to your eBay listing is OK. If it looks frivolous, and I know that is very subjective, then it will be deleted or edited by myself or a moderator. Think about why you are posting about item X. Would you still post it if you were bidding on it? If you have someone in mind for it, send them a PM. Don't clog up the forum with a bunch of fluff postings.


    Newer rules that supersede parts of item #2:

    Auction Postings: Please abide by the following rules concerning the posting of auction information in the forums:
    • Do NOT post about future or current GL/GP(GovPlanet)/GSA/eBay (including items for sale in buy-it-now formats)/local/city/state/Federal/estate auctions. You may post about any auction after the auction is closed.
    • Do not post links to auction photos.
    • Do not post links to GL/GP(GovPlanet)/GSA(or other sites)that have links that quit working after a short period of time. Save the image to your PC and then attach it to your post.
    • Do NOT post links to current eBay auctions or Craig's List ads that are not your own. You may post a link to your own auction/ad only if it is in an information/discussion thread about your vehicle/item. Do not start a post in the Conversations forum or your vehicle specific forum just to announce your auction/ad.
    • No collusion as specified above.

    3. NO PERSONAL ATTACKS: This means if you are really ticked because a SS member posted something that you were going to bid on, bite your tongue. Be nice to each other, but if it is a frivolous auction posting, don't be surprised if it gets some sarcastic remarks from other members. I know this isn't Kindergarten, but meanness won't be tolerated. Most of us put up with enough bull in our daily lives and don't want it here too. Attack posts will be edited or deleted by me or a moderator. Repeat attackers will be warned and may be banned if the behavior is not corrected.

    These are the rules, like them or not. I am going to leave this unlocked in case anyone has a question about a certain type of post. I'm serious about not wanting any advice on this matter. I got enough last time. I will just delete your post if you can't obey my request. Thanks for your attention.

    You should send that, in PM form (or a link to it) to every single member……..because I know there are a lot of people who are not here daily and will miss it if it isn't on the front page.

    I suppose you could make it a sticky, but I think most people look right past stickies-

    Your first rule is a sound one for all to follow.

    While looking up parts suppliers, I came across a Federal indictment of a prominent parts supplier who was accused of collusion in bidding on GL surplus.

    Collusion, no matter how minor, violates the law involving surplus sales.

    Ok I have an issue with this!!!! Put the baseball bat down im pullin yer leg!!!

    It's good to see such a hot topic getting put to bed and its a very commendable ruling on the issue!

    To everyone... Things like this are always hard calls for the management... Across the board on every level they deserve an immense amount of credit for the line they have to walk with over 4000 SS members, I know I wouldn't want to be responsible for it!

    To the admins and mods... You guys do a great job and are not often enough thanked for your efforts in bringing us this great forum, the hobby wouldn't be the same with out it!
