    Exclamation The Rules of the INGO Classifieds! -> You MUST READ before posting!

    In order to participate in the classifieds section you must have a quality post count of 50 or more. This policy is in place to help weed out scammers/spammers and gives our members a chance to get a feel for you as a board member. Do not attempt to gain access to the classifieds by posting a bunch of "one liners". That will not work. Thank you and enjoy the classifieds!

    Failure to comply with any of these rules will result in the immediate removal of your ad. There will be no warning, no explanation, no PM to inform you your ad has been removed. Thanks for your understanding in this matter!

    1. Prefix your ad using the drop-down selector with:

    • WTS: (Want To Sell) -> requires an asking price
    • WTB: (Want To Buy)
    • WTT: (Want To Trade) -> strongly recommend adding a trade value or specific trades
    • Free:


    2. All ads require your location. If you choose not to display your location in your post bit (info that appears below your avatar) you must include your location in the ad itself! If the OP gives a location, please don't ask where that is. Look it up!

    3. After your ad has been up for 24 hours you may 'bump' it once in a 24-hour period. This means that no less than 24 hours after the last post in the thread, you may add a new post ("bumping") to allow your ad to come back to the top to be noticed. DO NOT try to get around this by posting "replied to all PMs" or something similar. If a potential buyer asks a question, you may ONLY answer it in your original post or as your 24 hour bump. Remember you may only bump it 24 hours after the last post. If your item is SPF(sold pending funds) you must edit your first/original post to state that but do NOT bump your ad.

    4. ALL FREE, WTS & WTT classifieds on INGO require a picture of the item being sold/traded. Ads that do not contain a picture will be removed.
    WTB ads do not require a picture. INGO Advertisers are exempt from this rule.
    The following link will show you how to post a picture if you don't already know how.

    5. Post your ad in the appropriate forum.

    6. No links to auctions. No links to ads placed on other sites.

    7. Keep comments related to the ad directly and no ad bashing! ex. "Your price is crazy high. What a POS, etc." We also don't want to know if you think it's a great price, a nice gun, etc. Because ads move so quickly, the staff are having to spend huge amounts of time deleting irrelevant posts in threads to keep them from bumping early. Please keep all comments DIRECTLY related to the sale of the item in question. To clarify this, we mean an offer to buy/trade, notice of PM, questions about the specific item, etc. If an ad states WTS then do not ask if they will trade. If the ad states WTT do not ask if they have a cash price.

    ANY OTHER COMMENTS WHATSOEVER are off-limits and belong in their own thread in one of the other forums. ABSOLUTELY NO "Free bumps!" It's up to the thread starter to bump his/her own ad and the rules clearly state ONE bump every 24 hours. Do NOT ask in the forum to see pictures. Your continued access to the Classified Forums hinges on your ability to follow this simple rule!

    See this thread for more info:
    http://ingunowners.com/forums/firear...ified_ads.html

    8. Close your thread once your item sells. DO NOT remove the pricing that was in place as it will help cut down on the "What would be a good starting price to sell my XXX". Do not bump your ad by stating that the item is sold. Simply edit your first/original post and state that the item has been sold. Then close your ad.
    Steps to close your ad: While viewing your thread, click ADMINISTRATIVE (top of the thread). Be sure CLOSE THREAD is checked, and click PROCEED to close your ad.



    9. No sales of anything unlawful. This includes such things as suppressors and SBR/SBS, unless you have a FFL to permit such, and the buyer is to obtain a tax stamp on it. It also includes but is not limited to alcohol or anything else requiring licensing to lawfully sell. As "trades" are a gray area, we are going to err on the side of caution and disallow that also. If you have a question, please PM a mod and ask. INGO is the conduit by which you make contact with each other, and the responsibility for compliance with applicable law falls upon you, the buyer and you, the seller.

    10. If you break one of these rules by accident, report your own post and let the mods know. If someone else reports it, it looks a lot less like an honest mistake.
    To REPORT a post, click the yellow triangle found at the bottom of each post, and then include a brief description in the subsequent pop-up that follows.



    Below is a template you can use to place your ad:
    WHAT:
    DESCRIPTION: (caliber, mags, ammo, scratches, etc)
    LOCATION: (whether you are willing to travel and how far)
    PRICE:
    TRADES:

    DO NOT BUMP YOUR AD TO MARK IT SOLD! INFRACTIONS WILL BE GIVEN OUT TO ITEMS BUMPED WITH "SOLD".

    Please re-read the rules -- A few are complaining about infractions because they are not following the rules.... If you see people not following the rules, PLEASE REPORT THE POST.

    DO NOT say you will email pictures. DO NOT say you'll post them later. JUST POST THEM or state you have none.

    Threads will be removed if there are no pictures or if you say you will email them.

    Only bump your thread 24 hours after the last post. Please re-read the rules.

    bump again ....

    If you do NOT include pictures and do not state you have none, then your ad will be removed. If you say you can email or text pictures, then your ad will be removed because if you can email or text them, then you can post them.

    Need to bump this again as people are STILL bumping to close an ad, even one that hadn't been posted in for a few days. Do NOT get upset with us when you get an infraction/warning for one of the above rules. It's not rocket science and if you aren't sure, then just ask. We do not mind helping you out.

    4. INGO strongly suggests you post pictures in your ads. If you are not going to provide pictures you must inform INGO members of this in your ad. Do not have members "email you for pictures" If you have the pictures you must post them or simply state you have no pictures. Not knowing how to post pictures is no excuse.

    If you just grab an image from the Internet to use for your classified item, please let others know that is what you did. Let them know it is not your item they are looking at.

    Rule #4 says you must post pics or state that you have none.

    Stating that you'll post pics later, are posting from your phone, or some other excuse will not fly. If your ad doesn't contain a pic or the simple phrase "no pics", your ad WILL be deleted. Repeated violations will result in your classifieds access being revoked.
