    Dear Official Members, Club Guests & Forumers, It have come to the Committee’s attention recently on the Classifieds and Group Buys section that there are some “buyer(s)” of a product on sale being dissatisfied with the “seller” and alleging misrepresentation of products and to an extend of cheating. These incidents were duly reported to the Committee and we view these incidents with great seriousness and do not wish for any further unscrupulous buying and selling to occur in this Forum of ours. We, the Committee have therefore decided on the following for everyone attention when in the Classifieds and Group Buys section: 1. Classifieds section1.1 Only Official Members (“OM”) are allowed to open a new thread and post an item for sale in this section.1.2 Club Guest(s) (“CG”) are NOT allowed to open a new sales thread and sell any item or products whatsoever in this section.1.3 CG can only view, post sales enquiries and / or comments and / or buy items for sale.1.4 CG may approach an OM to sell an item or a product on their behalf and the said OM will be held fully accountable and responsible for any unforeseen circumstances as if it is the OM’s own item or product that is being sold. Therefore, OMs are advised NOT to post such sale if the said OM is not familiar with the CG or the item or product itself.1.5 The general Disclaimer clauses still applies.2. Group Buys section – Guidelines2.1 Group buys are buys in which more than one person is participating in the same order to receive discounts and/or lower shipping fees.2.2 Organizer(s) of Group buy can be OM or CG or both.2.3 Organizer(s) are required to obtain the Committee’s prior approval before a Group Buy posting can be posted in the forum and the Organizer(s) are required to proved to the Committee hi/her/their full name, photocopy of NRIC, contact number and brief item / product description.2.4 All Group Buys posting on a particular item or products shall need to clearly state the following information:(1) A detailed description and photographs of item being offered.(2) Price and delivery time.(3) Payment instructions.(4) Start & End date of Group Buy.(5) Where, When and How to pickup the item.(6) Discount offered (ie how much cheaper is it than buying on one’s ownself) (7) Shipping & customs import duties & taxes (if any)2.5 The general Disclaimer clauses still applies.Thank you.maccasel
