If you are posting from your phone, just stop. Stop and find a real computer. You cannot write a proper For Sale ad for a car from a phone. I have never seen it done. You need a full sized computer with a web browser, so that you can fill in all the appropriate details and pictures.

Thread title - Choose a Prefix (FS, FS/FT) from the dropdown. You must put the state abbreviation (or location if you're outside the US) at the start of the title. Note that "Feeler" is not an option... it's for sale only. Note that saying that you're "Testing the market" equals "feeler" and will get your thread locked. No excessive CAPS, punctuation ~~~*** or eBay-style nonsense allowed.

VA: 2002 WRX, 70k, loaded, $9,000

(did you notice up there that the first 2 letters are a state abbreviation?)

You can edit your thread title! Just hit the Edit button and then Go Advanced.

Post the car YOU are selling -
Please, no "selling for a friend."

No links to Craigslist
or eBay or the FS thread on some other car forum. Put the information in your thread.

Location Location Location - post the location of the car. 2-letter State abbreviation in the thread title FIRST, more specifics in the body.

VIN - If you don't want to post the VIN in your thread, that's okay. However, you must provide it to potential buyers over PM or email if they ask. Banks require the VIN for loan applications and insurance companies require it for a potential buyer to get a quote.

Pictures - You MUST post them or the ad will be closed. CLICK HERE FOR A WONDERFUL HOW-TO WALKTHROUGH. Pictures can be hosted for free at www.imgur.com and posted here (or anywhere on the Net) from there. Please do NOT send your potential buyers off to some other forum to find pictures, especially if they have to register. Note (see other sticky) that photobucket no longer allows links from free accounts. Don't use google pictures or any from snapchat, facebook or your computer. They won't show up. If moderators who don't have facebook/google/snapchat/whatever can't see the picture, it's not going to fly.
If you don't post pictures IN the ad, we will close your ad

Mobile users: upload a series of photos to imgur.com, create a "gallery" there and paste the link into your thread! If you can't figure out how to do this... try harder! DO NOT tell people to PM or TXT or email you for pictures. Post them in your thread. Do it.,

Price - post the price of the car, don't just ask for offers. A hint: If you put your price as $Price, people notice it. Please don't make people hunt for the price. If a price looks high to you, DON'T POST A COMPLAINT. That's OKAY. Just leave it alone, or PM them with a reasonable offer. DO NOT post "wtf that price is WAY HIGH u suk!"

One bump per day (24 hours) - Like it says. Also, if someone replied to your thread an hour ago, please don't "use your daily bump" an hour later to rocket it back to the top. We all have to use the forum together.

Time - Threads that have existed for more than three months may be subject to closure, at the moderator's discretion. By that point it is often clear that the car is overpriced or generally undesirable. If your car is not selling or attracting reasonable interest each week, then your price is likely too high. If your thread has been open for a year, then it's pretty clear that you have no interest in selling the car and the thread will be closed.

Respect - If you look at a seller's thread and you don't like the product being offered, or the price being asked, or the color of the font... keep it to yourself. Similarly, sellers should respect the people who post in their threads. Break this rule at your own risk.

If someone's asking $10,000 for a car you're sure is only worth $5,000... then I highly doubt anyone will buy that car. Leave them alone and let them dream of getting top dollar in peace. By arguing about the price you simply clutter the forum further, bumping threads for things you say are overpriced.

This same rule applies for potential buyers or casual onlookers. If you're not asking the seller a polite question, you probably should not be posting in the Classified thread. This is not the place to get into debates and discussions on cars, mods, prices, colors, or anything else.

Post Want to Buy threads in the Wanted forum, not here.

No dealership postings, no grey-market vehicles.

No For Trade only
because the guy who wants your car might have a pocket full of cash and not have the 2005 LGT 5 speed no-sunroof wagon that you demand

Breaking every single rule We have a special feeling for people who 1) don't put the 2 letter state 2) simply link a CL ad 3) say that their father/sister/brother/neighbor has this car for trade. When you break multiple rules..... At the moderator's choice, we'll simply make the ad disappear

My thread was locked, and now I don't know WHAT to do!!! Take a deep breath, calm down, and make a new thread. Follow these rules this time.

New Members If you just joined and made enough obviously worthless posts to get past the software gates and then come post your car, expect the post to be closed and you to be banned. If you're not a member who wants to participate in NASIOC, that's ok.....that's what craigslist is for.

Sold Vehicles Congratulations, you've sold your car. Please now give others a chance. If you want to let people know it's sold, your best steps are to change the title of your ad to *SOLD*. That's it. It will drop off the first page, never to be looked at again. We do not delete ads after you have sold your car So please don't add yet another post saying "sold, please delete" because we won't delete it and now you've clogged up the ads by bumping to the top. Why don't we delete ads? Because if there's a problem in the future (say you take someone's money and then don't deliever the car), we want to be able to allow members to see your ad. Oh....if you change your ad to hide things, the moderators can recover what used to be there and revert it to the original wording, in case you're trying to scam people.

From Matt A: How To Post Photos.

Step 1: Try your best to use your Dorito-dust covered sausage fingers to move your mouse cursor to the address bar on your browser and then type in www.imgur.com

Step 2: Click the "upload images" - you may need to adjust your fedora to see the screen properly.

Step 3: Now click the "browse your computer" button. Challenge yourself, see if you can find it!

Step 4: Now this will take some brain power so be prepared. You're going to have to remember where on your computer the image you want to upload is stored. If it's a picture of your car, it is probably not in the folder named "stuff" which everyone knows is your stash of granny bondage porn. Perhaps it is in a folder called "car", maybe even on your desktop. Try there first. Once the picture is located, select it and click "Open"

Step 5: Are you sweating yet? If so, take a long swig of that Mountain Dew on your desk. If you're out of Mountain Dew, try the Monster Energy drink in the trash from yesterday, there's probably a few drops left. Ok, I know this is getting complicated, but now, you have to click the "Start Upload" button.

Step 6: Imgur is really doing all the heavy lifting here for you and they provide the proper links to post your photo in forums. This is called BBCode. Try to sound that out. Bee Bee Code. Ok, time to select that. Stay with me!!! We're almost there. When you select it, it will copy the code.

Step 7:Last one! Now, go back to your thread and hit the Ctrl+V buttons on your keyboard to paste the code into your thread.

This is what the photo will look like (though hopefully your car and not mine)

Holy **** you made it. Congrats. Now you've learned something. Spread the word. Maybe next time you can figure something out for yourself!
