Any links to active eBay Auctions will be deleted without warning.

It simply isn't fair to the people who search eBay for auctions themselves to have other people come in and post links.

The only exception will be links to auctions which are misrepresented, involve possible fraud, or are reproductions listed as real.

sounds fair, to bad I'm not a player right now. So post links AFTER the auction ends since I'm always curious what stuff sells for Laughing

This has been more of a problem lately for some reason.

I added a paraphrased version of this to the Overall Site Rules

You assume that people read the rules before posting.

Awesome. I absolutely HATE when people post active links like that.

Correct but now we can say it's against the formal rules as opposed to it just being an informal thing.

Funny, I got pissed at the Klipsch Audio forum (I have been looking for a reasonably priced Academy center channel forever, they were $250 new in '91 and sell for $4-500 @ 15 years old(sound familiar)) I was bidding on one that was poorly listed and I figured I would snap it up and someone posted it as "Gee guys look at this one, what a deal"..... The reply I got was interesting. They support the "daylighting of auctions" because the forum is where people go to get a line on this stuff and it is "in the family" I am not sure I agree with them, but I had three guys offering me speakers within about two days.... It is apples and oranges as Samba has gotten huge Shocked ....It used to be so much more quaint (and cheap Confused !!) Did anyone ever use the one taht was aournd before this taht was (I think) based in the Netherlands in the late 90's and the guy tried to have a friend take it over and it crashed?(He was pissed))
Any back to my gainful employment...Walt

Yep : I just had some postings pulled as I linked to my EBay home page.

Like the previous poster says : not everyone has time to read the rules in full glorious detail : I sure as hell don't as I'm busy running my life, a wife, 4 vintage cars, a mortgage and a small acorn of a business.!!

In all fairness posting the links is all about exposure for what you are trying to sell.

Saying it's not fair on those that spend time searching EBay is all good and well.....but most stores have shop-windows to catch the eye of the odd passing stranger. This is an extension on that. Sometimes people do not know that they want something until they spot it in the store window.

I'm happy with it as long as people keep it real....and ocassional. You don't have to open the message of follow the links.! You can just sail right past them.!

Anyway - must go and slave over a hot computer elsewhere.

Posting links to your own active auctions is spam.

Use the Classifieds section to post ads, that's what it's there for.

So, it is OK to list active eBay auction in the classified section for ebay items?

Yes, it is allowed. Read the rules in the classified section first as there are some restrictions:
