Forum Rule Question

16 posts in this topic

Is it against the rules to post Colts merchandise for sale on the forum? I lost my job and have some nice items I need to sell.

I believe it is against the rules to do so. I believe the only links to purchase merchandise that are allowed are ones endorsed by the NFL, so that would include things like NFLshop.com and any team's proshop website. Perhaps another mod can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe those are the rules we have in place in terms of selling merchandise.

Sorry to hear about your job loss. Hopefully things pick up for you soon!

Sorry, and good luck. Too bad the forum doesn't have a "swap" section where members could post items. I can understand the liability issues though.

Ebay... Craigslist... or the neighborhood grocery store bulletin board.

Btw, have you read The Doors of Perception? I always wanted to, and may still. Just asking since Huxley is in your sig.

I heard that's how The Doors (the band) got their name, from that book. Jim Morrison read it and the rest is history.

I am sorry but it is against our rules.

Looks like you have gotten lots of advice from members though

Good luck!

I lost my job and have some nice items I need to sell.

Regarding the suggestions that others have made. I've sort of looked into this. I would search and read about all the on-line sales/auction sites before proceeding. Lots to learn. For example, Craigslist is free, but it's also very localized. That can be a good thing in the sense that you can complete the sale locally without worrying about shipping or waiting to get paid, but it's a bad thing in that there are a lot less eyes seeing the ad and that you have to make sure you don't get clocked in the head when you meet the buyer. It's also an incredibly primitive site that is unpleasant both to list on and shop on. I suspect that most of the time if you don't get interest from people in the first couple of days that something is listed, you are unlikely to ever get interest (although you can keep bumping your ad to keep it current). Also I suspect that since people know what Craigslist is, they are expecting/demanding even bigger bargains than they would elsewhere.

Ebay is much better in most regards (other than the shipping issues and risk of payment problems), however there are substantial fees to use it - some of which are incurred even if you don't sell anything. When you need money, committing yourself to paying fees with no guarantee of a return is a gamble. From everything I've read, "it isn't what it used to be". A LOT of people who loved it in years past simply detest it now. There are numerous other competing sites with lower fees, but of course they have less people shopping. It used to seem like everyone and their uncle was happily using Ebay to clean out their garage, but I don't think that there is a whole lot of "happy" left in it anymore.

Good Luck.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions I am very familiar and a seller on both Ebay and Craigslist. This is the place were I would want to share with other Colts fans opportunities to purchase Colts related items. Mods perhaps this is something to consider in adding a sell/wanted/trade section.

Oh come on man, couldn't you mention that up front? People were responding to what sounded like a cross between naivety and desperation, and now it turns out that you're an old pro. I have better things to do with my time.

There is a VAST difference between " I lost my job and have some nice items I need to sell.", and "This is the place were I would want to share with other Colts fans opportunities to purchase Colts related items.". The first makes me urgently want to help you. The second just makes me want to wash my hands.

(10)Selling of items, including game tickets or Colts merchandise, is also prohibited.

Please note, we advise our members NOT to enter into any transactions with other members. If you choose to do so, you assume all risk for your choice

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
