Classifed Ad Listing Guidelines
The Rockclimbing.com Classifieds is a FREE service to the global climbing community. We ask that you help us by following a few simple rules and guidelines to keep this place tidy.
- List your ad to a single category only
- No UPPER CASE SUBJECT LINES
- No HTML allowed
- No ==>"Eye Catchers"<== Do not use "eye catchers" in your subject lines to try and draw attention to your ad. Examples are adding characters like ==> <== or ** ** around the subject. Please type a clear descriptive subject only. These characters make a classifieds board look tacky and is not in line with the Rockclimbing.com brand of providing clear un-cluttered content. Help us keep it tidy. Ads that use this practice will be removed.
- URL or Links only
- Ebay links
- Duplicate ads
- Companies advertising
Please pick the most appropriate category and list your ad in that. Any multiple posts will be removed - all of them, not only the duplicate. Ads that are in the wrong category may be moved or removed. No SPAM will be allowed.
Do not post subject lines or ads in upper case letters. Upper case letters are rude and considered shouting.
You are not allowed to use any HTML anywhere in your ad. Any ad containing HTML will be deleted.
Your ad has to contain material and substantive information about the item you are selling. The Rockclimbing.com classifieds is a free service for people who want to list their gear for sale. It is not set up as a "links directory" to external sites where gear is being sold.
If you choose to sell your gear on Ebay then please do not place and ad on Rockclimbing.com with a link out to EBay only. See the guidelines above. Ads like this may be removed.
If you decide to post something that has already been posted again then you have delete your original post first. If a duplicate ad for the same item is found both will be removed.
While climbing gear sellers are at this stage welcome to list items in the classifieds we ask that you not abuse this privilege. Do not spam the classifieds with items and please list proper information about each item for sale, not just links to your site or a general "sales" announcement. If gear sellers abuse this privilege access to the classifieds for all companies may be suspended. please work with us on this. :-)
We reserve the right to refuse service and remove any ad without providing a reason. Repeat offenders and spammers will have their usernames disabled. Thanks for supporting Rockclimbing.com and thank you for helping us keep the Classifieds tidy and easy to use for everyone.
