1) Ads placed in the Yankee Trader section should be items you have for sale, or are looking to buy.

2) Do not post links to eBay or Craigslist ads in this section. These types of posts should go here.

3) All posts in the Yankee Trader section are now required to have a title EXACTLY matching of of the following formats (including all punctuation and spacing). Copy and paste from this post if you need to:
Quote:
FOR SALE: Title of Object For Sale - $0.00

If you are accepting offers, you may use:
FOR SALE: Title of Object For Sale - INQUIRE

If you are listing multiple items, you may use:
FOR SALE: Title of Objects For Sale - VARIOUS



Quote:
WANTED: Title of Object Wanted


Quote:
TRADE: Title of Object For Trade


4) If your listing title exceeds the character limit, do not omit the price, instead you should shorten or abbreviate your description.

5) Once the Item has been sold or found, the title should be updated to one the following (Do NOT remove the price from your listing title):

Quote:
SOLD: Title of Object For Sale - $0.00


Quote:
FOUND: Title of Object Wanted


Quote:
TRADED: Title of Object For Trade


6) Do not specify "OBO" or "Best offer", these things are implied. If your price is firm, say so in the body of your listing, not the title.

7) Any posts not following this format will be deleted without notice.

8) Do not bump your post to the top by typing "bump". You may use the bump button when it becomes available once every 7 days, or you may update your post to indicate a price reduction.

IMPORTANT UPDATE TO YANKEE TRADER GUIDELINES

Due to multiple requests, and because it makes sense to do so for historical reference, I have updated the Yankee Trader Guidelines. Prices will now be kept in the listing title, and instead of appending the words "SOLD, FOUND, or TRADED" to the end of the post, prices will remain at the end and the words "FOR SALE, WANTED, or TRADE" will now be changed to reflect that the item is gone or has been found.

Also, there are still many people who are not using titles in the proper format. The examples provided above are not suggestions, your titles must be EXACTLY as written above (INCLUDING CAPITALIZATION). If you are unsure, please copy and paste the examples into your listing and edit the description and price accordingly, using caution not to change or remove punctuation or spacing. Take a moment to read the guidelines above, and if you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message.

Thank you for your cooperation,

-Brandon
