Clarification to Buy/Sell rules
Sad that we have had to add a line to the Buy/Sell rules for clarification but recently a situation came up where it was required.
As a seller, when you advertise a gun that "is in working condition, but recently started making a noise I think its a motor" and the only other details you provide is that there is a minor section of damage to the barrel, and that is all the photos show and sell the gun cheaply because you do not have the time or skill to fix the possible issue. Do not be surprised when the person who buys it receives it, finds out it is missing a bunch of parts and has quite a few other pieces of damage not mentioned or shown in any of the photos posted, is upset and leaves you a negative feedback.
Do not leave them retaliatory feedback calling them a whiner because you sold it to them super cheap.
Not disclosing that you have pilfered quite a few parts from the gun, not mentioned a fair amount of other damages as well in your cheap gun ad is dishonest.
Due to the amount of the gun in this case being super low, we did not remove the AV tags of the seller this time (he did get a 3 month ban for being a douche though). We did remove the retaliatory feedback he left and if he does so again it will end up in a perma ban.
So the new rule is about disclosure, providing the proper information regarding what you are selling to others. If you state it is in working condition with a suspected motor issue, do not sell it if you fail to mention you removed parts from the gearbox to fix one of your other guns first. If you say the body is in good shape other then 1 small spot (and your photos only show this), and it is received with cracks and other damages you did not disclose this violates said rules.
Honesty people, this sport is based upon it and Honour. Show this in your sales as well, or you will lose the privilege of selling here.

That can result in premature bumping of a thread.
That's what PMs are for.
