** MUST READ ** NEW Swap Meet Rules, effective 3/28/07
Based on numerous requests/suggestions/screaming over the past year, the Swap Meet area will require supporting membership for thread starting. Unless further issues occur, non-supporting members should still be able to reply to threads, but they will not be allowed to either start a thread or sell items.
Why? Because we had a few instances where someone ripped off club members, and the membership as a whole asked for this rule, specific to parts (car sales do not require this.) It ensures a valid email/paypal account or address is on record.
I.e. it helps stop someone from creating a hotmail or yahoo account, creating an imboc.com account, sell "items" they don't have, and then disappearing.
Remember Wheaton's Law. Nicht die Regeln brechen und du wirst nicht in Schwierigkeiten zu bringen.
