    Rules for Listing Ads:

    1.) Ads placed to defraud members will be removed ASAP and the user who placed said ad will be permanently banned.

    2.) Ads must be in the English language. A translation in any other language/s can be placed under the English language text.

    3.) Ad titles must reflect the item being sold and be of a reasonable length. It should be clear from the title alone what is being sold.

    4.) The correct category for each ad must be placed. Items in all but the custom categories should be available to deliver to a customer immediately. There is a “Custom” category for items that can be customized. If your listing contains items that can be made “however you want” “how you like” “as sweaty as you want them” etc. they must go in the appropriate “Custom” category.

    5.) Ads must be for one item category only. If you are selling shorts and socks, they must each go into separate categories, one for each ad.
    *If you are selling 5 pairs of underwear, of different sizes, that can go into one ad. Just make sure your pictures and ad text reflect each of them.
    *If you are selling different custom items, make sure that each item is in the appropriate ad category and that the pictures and ad text reflect samples of what is for sale.

    6.) Main Picture must be of the item being sold. When selling an item as a pair, such as socks, both items must be shown.

    7.) No ads posted to advertise another website.

    Item 6 was updated to add “When selling an item as a pair, such as socks, both items must be shown.” This was always the case and covered by “main picture must reflect the item being sold” but this clarifies the case with items like socks and shoes. Both don’t have to be on the main picture, which is a change from our previous policy, but they need to be somewhere in the ad.
