Please review these rules for the for sale section. There's been a lot of new sale threads lately that ignore or are unaware of these rules.
  • Items listed on sites outside of Macross World (such as eBay) should be listed in the Where to Buy Macross, Auctions & Dealers Specials Section.
  • All threads offering an item for sale must have a posted price. "Silent Auction" style listings are not allowed. This rule includes (prohibits) "Make me an offer" listings. Failure to post a price may subject the thread to immediate deletion.
  • Items offered exclusively for trade only must be listed as such, otherwise they must have a posted price. Failure to do so may may subject the thread to immediate deletion.
  • For clarification purposes it should be assumed that potential buyers posting "dibs", "PM Sent," or other such posts in sale/trade listings should not expect any special consideration given to them by the seller for being "first in line" unless they have heard directly from the seller that they are indeed the purchasing party. Always rely primarily on direct communication and confirmation from the seller. Do not assume that you are guaranteed an item by being first to post in a thread. Macross World administration and staff will not mediate or oversee disputes. This note is here solely for your information and advisement.
We've also added these new rules for the sales section
  • Challenging a seller's price in public is not allowed. If you feel there is unscrupulous activity or a mistake, PM the seller or a moderator.
  • Do not publicly post a price from a different sale thread or cite an outside source to a seller on their thread.
  • Flipping merchandise bought from MacrossWorld on Macrossworld is not allowed. You cannot sell an item that you just bought from the for sale section for more than the price you bought it for. There will be a one year statute of limitation for each item.
On a separate note, we'd like to clarify or set up how to post certain threads in the "Overtechnology Think Tank" Section
  • Ask all questions regarding customization and build ups in Building/Customizing Macross Models & Toys.
  • All threads that exhibit 100% finished customs should be posted within their respective section (Toys or Models) and not in the Building/Customizing.
  • All toys and models upgrades and product announcements, including third party can be in their respective sections unless the thread becomes a build up, then we will move it to Building/Customizing Macross Models & Toys.
If these new or adjusted rules contradict some previous actions by moderators, we will let those action stand. But the new rules and guidelines will be enforced here after.

And finally, instead of a sub header we have tags now.
To help make searching the forums a little bit easier, please add tags to your new topics. If you are adding a new toy thread, you can tag it with toy company, scale, valkyrie model and type, etc. Or if it's media, you can tag it with media type, author, publisher and/or the subject matter such as character, mech or person of interest. Consider what tags other people have used or will use. Tags only work if they are exactly the same as others. A misspelled tag is no good.

A lot of MWorld folks have multiples of the same toy for whatever reason. If they bought a toy in the FS thread but had one at home already, and then decide to sell one of them within a year of the purchase, can they sell the one they had at home already for whatever price they choose based on this new rule? Or are you completely banned from selling that exact model of toy for one year for any price no matter where you got it from just because you bought one recently on MW? I'm not asking out of sarcasm or to debate anything because I'm glad things are clarified now after my thread got blown up, but either we address these gray areas now or there will be even more drama in the future.

They can't sell the same exact toy for more.

If you had 5 Scott masterpiece Beagles and you bought one for 199 on MW and decide a week later to sell the same item even though it's not the same exact one, you can't sell it for more. The only way you can sell one for more would be if you bought something that was in a worse condition and you decide to sell a different one that was mint. If you buy one that was broken and you fixed or refurbished it, it's still considered flipping.

Concerning tags... if you want people (or yourself) to be able to find your topics, you can tag yourself as the author.

Another thing about tags...

Tags are delimited by commas (with no space separating). So if you want to have multiple tags, use a comma to separate them.

Good tagging example:
Macross,Macross II,Macross 7,VF-1 Valkyrie,Jennifer Aniston,movie,name,comma,

Bad tagging example:
EXO Your-fault no-soup-for-you
or
Bunch of words with no commas

Erm...are you implying that the "No Threads About Jennifer Aniston" rule has been repealed...?
