Lets start with some basics; Title Prefix All titles must include a prefix - This enables easy sorting by prospective buyers. There is a prefix for most categories. If your item does not match any category then use a generic term eg; - For Sale - Wanted - Swap - Trade Title Description Description should include as many of the following elements as possible; - Gender (if applicable) - Plain-English Product Name (basically a noun = eg; Jacket) - Brand or Manufacturer name (eg: Columbia) - Item name (eg: Bugaboo) - Salient specifications such as size or length (eg: Size M) - Price (may include price basis descriptors such as 'ono' or 'ea.' ) - Location (specifically Skis & Boards where pickup is preferred over posting - otherwise this is optional) Putting it together... Clothing: Mens Columbia Bugaboo Jacket, size L $85 ono - Newcastle Image Uploads Gear Swap allows for image upload by all members (no fee-based membership required). Please use the 'Upload a File' button when posting your item. If you expect to sell it - then upload a pic! Offers without an image are FAIL. Editing Thread starters my edit the Opening Posts (OP) at any time. Use the 'Edit' link at the end of your OP. Threads can not be deleted (see Marking as Sold). Watch your Thread After you have created your thread, make sure you 'Watch' your thread. This will ensure you get notifications when people post a reply (anyone asking questions has some level of interest, reply quickly for your best chance of a sale). You can select to receive notifications by email or just alert icons when logged in. Marking as Sold Select 'Edit Thread' from the 'Thread Tools' menu (which is immediately above the OP) and change the prefix to 'Sold'. Please change only the title prefix and not the original title. Only the person who created the OP can edit the prefix. Why Threads are kept and marked as sold rather than deleted. This enables a record of what does and does not sell and what fair value is for similar items. Pricing Guide (shamelessly stolen from TGR) 50% of current online price (not Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) -10% per year of age* -10% per times drilled, per core shot, per delam...etc -10% per Marker binding attached +10-30% for Rare/High-demand item If your pricing is unrealistic and completely out of the ball park - expect the locals to let you know. * NOTE: If your item is approaching a decade old and not in the Rare/High Demand category - it's very probably worthless junk.
