The stickies at the top of the For Sale area clearly state the guidelines for posting in that section. Don't get me wrong, I'm not chastising you, but if more people would just read the stickies it would make life A LOT easier for the staff!
And, as Jeff said, you need a few more posts. I would HIGHLY suggest you read ALL the stickies prior to posting. If any of the guidelines aren't met your post will be deleted.
Well, since the stickies are being ignored I'll stick this here as well. Please guys! READ THE STICKIES! We have a enough crap to do around here rather than babysitting the For Sale section but, alas it's all we ever get done doing.
For those of you who have read and adhered to Forum policy, on behalf of the staffTHANK YOU!

Personal Sales Only!
No person shall sell any item on behalf of a business. If you are a business and would like to advertise your goods here - please consult with one of the site administrators first! Any company selling items without prior permission will have their offending threads removed.
4x4 related Parts Only!
We're not here to buy soiled matresses! This is a Jeep site, and thus Jeeps are the point of interest here. If you feel a special need to post something non-4x4 related, consult with a forum leader first. Items that would be ok are things like suspensions, coils, leafs, engines, transmissions, transfercases, frames, bodies/tubs, etc.
Include the state (or country if applicable) from which you will be selling in the title of the thread
Some people like buying local stuff so they can pick it up the same day and make the exchange in person! Include the state in the title of your thread to make things easy. Remember - nothing seals a deal like a handshake!
People love pictures!
Blind buying makes people somewhat skeptical - if you can, or if appropriate, include some photos of what you're trying to sell
How am I paying?
Cash? Money Order? Paypal? A herd of sheep? Let everyone know how you'd like to exchange funds.
So how much ya want?
The infamous "Make offer" statement can drive some people crazy. Even if you're looking at an offer - we all know you're expecting at least something, give us a ball park figure, and slap an O.B.O. (Or Best Offer) on there! If it's free, then of course let everyone know that too
EDIT 09/08/06: Also please when your item is either sold or you no longer need what you are looking for, please post a reply stating "sold" so we can take care of the thread. We would like to keep our for sale section clean so that people know when something is posted that it is either still for sale or wanted by someone. I will do my best to delete threads I know of that are no longer valid.
EDIT 07/13/08 You must have at least 15 posts in the forum to be able to place a forsale post.
EDIT 10/15/2008 - Failure to follow the rules of this forum will result in removal of your thread no questions asked.

If anyone is confused about what the rules of this forum are then check the "Stickies" and they will clearly explain what is expected of you.
Also, if you do not have the minimum of 15 posts on the forum you will not be allowed to post a For Sale listing. Post padding won't do either. If you feel the need to post pad in order to get your 15 posts then those posts will be deleted.
