    Rule# 6.18 has been amended to bring AMC in line with other classified sites and to ensure members selling and buying Vehicles on AMC are further protected.


    Previous Rule:
    6.18 Car Sales
    The car’s VIN Number must be made available to prospective buyers so appropriate checks can be made if required.

    Revised/New Rule:
    6.18 Car Sales
    The sale of Vehicles (Cars, Bikes, etc.) on AMC must be accompanied with the following additional information in the first post to allow prospective buyers to perform appropriate checks if required.
    HTML Code:
    [B][COLOR="Red"]VIN Number: [/COLOR][/B] 
    [B][COLOR="Red"]Registration Number (if registered): [/COLOR][/B] 
    [B][COLOR="Red"]Registration Due Date: [/COLOR][/B]

    We also suggest members review the For Sale Guidelines (6.20).
    Cheers, Puck (Graeme).

    Rule# 6.4 has been updated to explicitly state that all FS threads must have a fixed selling price - simply giving "offers" as the price is not sufficient. This requirement is to prevent disputes from arising, and has been enforced by the AET for some time.

    Members are still free to accept a lesser offer or to lower the price in due course. As always though, they are obliged to sell to the first person to offer them the current asking price.

    Previous Rule
    6.4 For Sale Template
    The For Sale Template is used for For Sale (FS) threads and Free or giveaway items (FREE).
    All FS and FREE threads must use the AMC Standard FS Template.
    COPY AND PASTE the below template into your proposed FS thread.

    Revised/New Rule
    6.4 For Sale Template
    The For Sale Template is used for For Sale (FS) threads and Free or giveaway items (FREE).
    All FS and FREE threads must use the AMC Standard FS Template.
    All FS threads must have a fixed selling price.
    COPY AND PASTE the below template into your proposed FS thread.

    Rule# 6.17 has been updated to further explain the For Sale thread Bumping rule.

    Previous Rule
    6.17 Thread ‘Bumping’
    ‘Bumping’ of your own active FS or WTB thread is permitted, however ‘bumping’ your thread is only permitted once every 72 hours.
    Revised/New Rule
    6.17 Thread ‘Bumping’
    ‘Bumping’ of your own active FS or WTB thread is permitted, however ‘bumping’ your thread is only permitted once every 72 hours.
    Bumping includes...
    - any post that adds no value or change to the sale.
    - price reductions of an insignificant nature (eg 1 cent).
    - pointless posts such as "PM sent", "PM replied", "Please buy it", etc.

    Rule #6.17 regarding bumping has been updated to remove any ambiguity. Also, if you're a Donating Member, Sponsor or Management, the bump period has been reduced to 48 hours.

    As this rule has tended to been overlooked, it has been moved up to rule #6.11. All the other rules remain unchanged, albeit one number higher.

    Previous Rule
    6.17 Thread ‘Bumping’
    ‘Bumping’ of your own active FS or WTB thread is permitted, however ‘bumping’ your thread is only permitted once every 72 hours.
    Bumping includes...
    - any post that adds no value or change to the sale.
    - price reductions of an insignificant nature (eg 1 cent).
    - pointless posts such as "PM sent", "PM replied", "Please buy it", etc.
    New/Revised Rule
    6.11 Thread ‘Bumping’
    You cannot make any post in your own FS/WTB thread for at least 72 hours following the previous post (regardless of whether it was posted by you or another member). The only exception is if you're answering a question asked in the thread. For Donating Members, Sponsors and members of the Management Team, this duration is reduced to 48 hours.

    Rule# 6.16 has been updated to include Group Buys and threads for Group Buy and Sponsorship ideas.

    Previous Rule
    6.16 Commercial Advertising
    The For Sale forum is for private sales only.
    As stated in Rule 2.10, no advertising of commercial products or business trade is allowed without prior approval through the AMC Sponsorship program.
    AMC Sponsors have progressive levels of advertising options and sale quantity authorities based on the Sponsorship Level selected.
    If you wish to advertise/sell products for your business for profit, please contact the AMC Sponsorship Coordinators - Mal (Madmagna) or Graeme (GRDPuck).
    Revised/New Rule
    6.16 Sponsorship & Group Buys
    The For Sale forum is for private sales only.
    AMC offers various options for sponsorship, these have progressive levels of advertising options and sale quantity authorities based on the Sponsorship Level selected.
    If you wish to advertise or sell a product or service for profit, please contact an AMC Sponsorship Coordinator - Mal (Madmagna) or Graeme (GRDPuck) – to discuss your proposal.

    Group Buys must be approved by the AMC Administration Team.

    If you have a Sponsorship idea or Group Buy opportunity, and wish to gauge the potential interest, please contact a member of the AMC Moderation or Administration Team. Your request will be considered, and if approved, you will be given permission to create a thread to ‘float’ your idea/proposal to the AMC members.
    Cheers, Puck (Graeme).
