Pelican Parts READ ME - Guidelines for Posting in This Forum... -updated 9/28/2017

I have created this forum as an area where our customers can sell Porsche cars or parts. As such, there are a couple of guidelines that you must follow if you consent to use this board:

Listing Guidelines:

- If your thread does not meet any of these guidelines it is subject to be removed.

- For Sale items MUST have an asking price, and it’s recommended to have a location listed.

- You may *bump* your ad, but no more than once every three (3) days. Ads that have been bumped more than eight (8) times may be closed. After a thread is closed, the parts advertised therein cannot be posted again for four weeks.

- You may not create more than FOUR different posts at any one time, or have more than four posts bumped onto the first page of the classifieds at any one time. The reason for this is to allow space for everyone to buy and sell

- Commercial dealers are allowed to list cars for sale in the car for sale section without permission. Commercial dealers MUST obtain permission from an Administrator before posting in the used parts classifieds.

- No user is allowed to post product for sale that they make. If you want to list a product that you make and sell it to the community you need to contact an Administrator to set up your product in our catalog. Only vendors of Pelican Parts may sell product on our forum.

- No new parts allowed, unless you specifically clear it an Administrator first. Exceptions are if you have one or two small trinkets left over in a box from a long time ago. Selling more than quantity one of a new item is prohibited.

- No rebuilt parts allowed, if they compete with items sold by Pelican.

- No illegal items allowed (items that are counterfeit, or are illegal copies such as PET).

- Listing and placing links to used items on outside sites *is* allowed, providing that you specifically list a description of the item, and then give a link. No blind links. Linked posts may not be bumped.

- However, if you want to conduct an auction for your parts, please do not use our forum and use an auction site instead.

- The more text and photos you add, the more likely you are to sell. Add as many photos and as much text description as you need to adequately describe the parts.

- Try to avoid using capital letters and exclamation marks in the listing titles - these only serve to irritate people and thus they may skip over your listing.

- Make sure you have enabled "Email Notification" and "Private Message Notification,"and have subscribed to your post so that you know when someone has posted a
comment, question, or sent an email or PM regarding your ad.

- Indicate your geographic location, either in the post itself or by filling out the "location" field of your profile.

- PayPal (www.paypal.com) is a useful form of payment that is very popular with our users. People who accept PayPal are often trusted more, typically get paid faster and have increased interest in their listings.Buyers, please note that if you send money using PayPal’s no-fee “Friends and Family” option there will also be NO refunds or investigations into fraudulent transactions of any kind.

- Be sure to list your email address and/or contact phone number in the listing. Also indicate where the part/vehicle is located and how shipping will be arranged if it can't be shipped in a box.

- When the item is sold, simply modify your post (using the edit button), to indicate that the item has indeed been sold. Posters are not allowed to delete threads - only edit them. Don't remove the original information, as that will render it useless for people to research historical price info. If you're unable to edit your original post please contact a Moderator or Administrator to edit it for you.

Buyer's Guidelines:

You can reply directly to vehicle parts FS/WTT/WTB ads, but not vehicles for sale.

- It is appropriate to respond to an ad by either emailing or sending the seller a Personal Message (PM) through the board. We do not allow anyone to reply directly to the vehicle for sale ads except the original poster. If the individual did not leave contact info in the posting, please click on their username and select to private message the poster.

- Be polite, and don't trash someone else's listing. It's not polite to point out that the person is selling this part when there is one cheaper on eBay. However, if there are visible errors in the listing, it is then appropriate to follow up with comments.

- Check out the seller before sending your $$$. Get full information, including multiple phone numbers and addresses. Do a search on Pelican to see if this person has a lengthy posting history and/or has sold items here before. Bad news travels fast, so double-check the archives, particularly on purchases that are high dollar.

- Use the search engine, but make sure that you check the date on the ad if you reply. If an ad is from 2001 and you reply to it, it will appear like the ad is recent, and the part will probably have long since been sold.

- Use the search engine to compare pricing and availability of an item. None of the previous ads are deleted, so you have access to a vast group of listings that you can use to track pricing trends, and availability.

- Most importantly, COMMUNICATE with each other. Ask the seller how long the item will take to ship, whether they will email you the tracking number, etc. All of this should be settled before money changes hands. Most buying and selling conflicts arise because of poor communication. Get each other's phone numbers and addresses!

Policy on Disputes:

Disputes will inevitably arise, but bringing them to the attention of the forum should be used only as last resort. You should exhaust all other options -- phone calls, emails, etc. -- and have a little patience in allowing legitimate packing and shipping delays before posting a complaint. Complaints must be fact-based, non-hysterical, and not personally insulting or inflammatory. They serve the purpose of warning others about someone's poor behavior, and hopefully convincing that person to make the situation right.

Disclaimer:

Pelican Parts Incorporated provides this free classifieds listing service as a courtesy to our customers. By no means are the listings here condoned, reviewed, or edited by Pelican staff. Caveat emptor - buyer beware. We will not actively assist in mediating any complaints with respect to any transactions resulting from the placement of a classified ad.

do you mean you can't make a new post? or that you can't respond to an existing thread? you should be able to make a new post.

so many people skip on the location part, crazy

should also post pics, at least of bigger items - no one is going to want to see what a control arm looks like, but if you are selling body parts, or engine/transmission - you are most likely going to be asked for pics by the other party anyways ...

By replying to your own original post. Folks will usually put nothing more than "bump" or "TTT" (for To The Top) in the message field. By replying to their own post, it "bumps" the post up to the top of the most recently updated threads in the forum. Done indiscriminately, it could be considered a form of spam.

when posting, select the 'advanced' and then you will see where it lets you attach a photo;
Attach a Photo
You may attach a photo of nearly any size - we will resize it for you.

what if a part is NLA but someone actually has a new part?

for example, a stockpile of new parts that aren't installed yet - or a practically new part - that they want to either sell or a user is looking for?

trouble getting a post submitted

I've been having trouble (likely operator error....) getting a post (three attempts, actually) submitted/having it show up in the 924/944/968 used parts forum.
I was logged in and apparently (according to what i saw at the bottom of the page) had permission to make new posts/reply to posts/attach photos to posts etc., yet when i hit the submit button i was informed I didnt have the right to post,,,,so I tried it again double checking to make sure I was logged in and again when i hit the submit button the same notice came,,,,I thought perhaps it was because I had attached too many photos to my post so on the third attempt I didnt attach any photos and simply asked viewers to contact me off line to see photos if they were interested,,,when i hit the submit button that time the notice I received said the post was submitted but under review by the moderator. that attempt was made about18 hours ago,,,,,any advice on how I should proceed? is there a different way I should be logging on to the board? any help would be greatly appreciated,,,thanks much in advance!
