 Dear  IAH  Member,
 
 IAH  is  purely  a  hobbyist  site.  Setup  by  hobbyist  for  hobbyist.  We  appreciate  all  the  hobbyist  who  had  contributed  &  made  IAH  what  it  is.  Some  of  our  members  were  both  hobbyist  &  commercial  folks.  However,  they  clearly  understood  what  IAH  was  &  what  it  stood  for.  They  brought  out  the  hobbyist  in  them.  Something  which  the  new  members  with  commercial  interest  are  unable  /  unwilling  to  do.  We  find  may  commercial  postings  in  Buy  /  Sell  /  Exchange.  In  fact,  some  of  our  newer  members  post  only  in  this  forum  !
 
 Another  point  of  concern  for  our  members  is  deals  going  bad.  To  set  right  things,  we  have  drafted  these  Guidelines  /  Rules.  Please  note  hence  forth,  it's  mandatory  for  posting  on  Buy  /  Sell  /  Exchange.
 
 

     
  1. Poster  on  this  forum  (Buy  /  Sell  /  Exchange)  MUST  BE  a  HOBBYIST.  Commercial  or  semi  commercial  persons  SHOULD  NOT  post  here.
     
  2. Seller  (Poster)  must  be  an  IAH  member  for  atleast  3  months  before  posting  anything  to  sell.  He  is  free  to  buy  though.  
     
  3. Codes  on  Subject  Line  -  WTB:  Want  to  buy,  WTS:  Want  to  sell,  WTT:  Want  to  Trade/Exchange,  GA:  Give  away  free,  FS:  For  Sale  are  mandatory.  
     
  4. Location  -  The  location  of  the  seller  and  the  material  has  to  be  included.  Either  the  seller's  column  should  have  the  location  or  it  must  be  included  in  the  post.  
     
  5. Shipment  -  The  seller  should  specify  whether  he  can  ship  it  out  of  city/state,  only  in  the  city  or  whether  it  is  only  on  collect  basis.  
     
  6. Pictures  -  Should  be  uploaded  or  links  provided  wherever  possible.  If  not,  it  should  be  specified  whether  pictures  are  unavailable.  
     
  7. Description  -  A  brief  description  about  the  item,  its  condition  and  age  has  to  be  provided.  
     
  8. Money  Back  Guarantee  -  Is  the  Seller  will  to  provide  "Satisfaction  Guaranteed  or  Your  money  back  !"  ?
     
  9. No  more  than  1  active  thread  at  a  time  per  member.  
     
  10. Threads  to  be  updated/closed  as  soon  as  a  transaction  is  complete.
     
  11. Then  the  seller  is  entitled  to  modify  the  subject  line  and  say  'SOLD'.  
     
  12. Buyer  to  should  post  on  how  satisfied  he  is  with  the  transaction.  
     
  13. Moderators  will  then  lock  it.
     

 
 We  also  propose  to  maintain  a  list  of  sellers  who  provide  excellent  products  &  services.

    i  think  this  is   where  both  the  seller  and  buyer  have  to  be  sure  and  clear  regarding  the  deal.  furhter  who  has  to  be  responsible   regarding  loss  during  transaction  and  shipping?
    another  point  as  raised  by  deepesh  should  also  be  given  a  thought.  why  not  keep  a  separate  folder  in  home  page  or  in  recent  topics,  so  that  important  discussion  from  hobbyist  doesnt  get  sidelined???

 Great  work  to  all  those  who  were  invovlved  in  this.
 I  wish  to  add  further  to  the  abovei
 The  homepage  displays  the  recent  post  on  IAH  and  nowadaysalmost  60%  post  are  in  the  Buy/Sell/Exchange  categories.
 
 Can  we  do  something  such  that  the  posts  from  the  Buy/Sell/Exchange  forum  do  no  appear  in  the  home  page  ?
 This  will  ensure  that  the  posts  from  genuine  hobbyists  always  hold  more  priority  on  the  homepage.
 Geninue  buyers  and  sellers  have  to  take  the  extra  pain  of  visitng  the  sub  forum  page.
 
 Just  a  suggestion.
 
 
 Edited  :  Oops  i  just  read  that  deepesh  has  aleady  suggested  something  similar.

 Just  a  thought  -  if  it  is  possible  to  do  -  within  the  member's  account  page  where  all  the  details  are  there,  can  we  have  a  section  where  others  can  post  a  comment  about  him?  For  example,  if  I  had  a  good  experience  while  buying  something  from  X,  I  can  go  there  and  put  my  comments  and  that  stays  there  for  others  to  see  later.  Once  a  member  has  say  ten  good  comments  from  ten  different  members  he  can  be  classified  as  a  good  seller.  I  don't  know  technically  how  practical  it  is  to  implement.

 Ravi,
 
 I  think  this  will  surely  minimise  the  misuse  of  the  portal  and  genuine  buyers/sellers  will  have  a  platform  to  enter  into  a  commercial  deal  and  the  fuss  will  be  minimised......  Thumb Up  I  don't  know  if  it  would  be  possible  but  can  there  be  a  parameter  to  access  whether  the  price  that  is  being  charged  by  the  seller  is  genuine  or  not..?  
 
 Regards

 Hi  Joy,
 
 This  may  be  tough  to  decide  upon.  For  one  thing,  the  seller  has  the  right  to  charge  what  he  pleases  or  thinks  right.  It  is  upto  the  buyer  to  decide.  All  this  depends  on  the  commodity  on  sale,  isn't  it?
 
 How  will  you  know  what  should  be  the  price  for  a  2nd  hand  Ehiem  canister  filter  or  how  would  you  know  that  a  particular  discus  variety  is  expensive  or  not?  
 
 I  think  if  the  buyer  can  afford  it  and  he  knows  it  is  in  good  condition,  then  it  is   a  deal.
