    Default Private Party Ad Forum Rules, FAQ, Safe Selling Guidelines

    Here are the basics:

    1. Only private party sales are allowed in the forum. No dealers.
    2. Ads are 100% free.
    3. Threads are moved to the archive after they have been inactive for 90 days.
    4. You may "bump" a thread once per month.
    5. TBN does not review ads. Buy and sell at your own risk!

    More detailed rules and info below...

    ---------PRIVATE PARTY ADS FORUM RULES---------

    1. This forum is for posting items for sale by private parties. If you are in the business of selling tractors, parts, equipment, etc, a dealer or manufacturer, you may not post in this forum. Please e-mail advertising@tractorbynet.com for details on advertising for dealers and manufacturers.

    2. Buy & Sell at your own risk! See safe selling guidelines are provided below as a starting point for protecting yourself. TBN has no involvement in transactions, escrow, inspection of equipment, representations, etc. You should conduct your own due diligence on every purchase or sale and take every precaution to make the right purchase and protect yourself. If a deal seems "too good to be true" it usually is.

    3. We do not review ads. If you see something that looks suspect, please use the notify moderator link to report it.

    ---------FAQ---------

    How much do ads cost?
    $0

    How do I post an ad?
    1. Log in to TBN. If you do not have an account you need to register.

    2. Visit the private party ads forum.

    3. Click the post new thread button.

    4. Fill out a title, information, attach photos, etc.

    5. Click the submit new thread button.

    How do I attach photos?
    Click on the "manage attachments" button when posting a thread. This will prompt you for files to attach.

    ---------SAFE SELLING GUIDELINES---------

    As you start to get contacted by potential buyers, please be careful of online scam attempts. For many years, online classified websites have been the target of scammers who attempt to defraud sellers of high-ticket items, including tractors, with various illegal tactics.

    Here are some general guidelines:

    * If something "just doesn't seem right" it probably isn't.

    * Deal locally with folks you can meet in person.

    * Never accept or wire funds via western union, moneygram or any other wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.

    * Fake cashier checks & money orders are common, and banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fake is discovered weeks later.

    * TractorByNet.com is not involved in any transaction, and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer "buyer protection" or "seller certification."

    * Never give out financial information (bank account number, social security number, ebay/paypal info, etc.)

    * Avoid deals involving shipping or escrow services and know that only a scammer will "guarantee" your transaction.

    * Do not ship items to a buyer until you are 100% positive that the funds for the transaction have been secured through a trusted method.

    This is by no means a complete list and scammers are always coming up with new tactics to try.

    Thank you!!!

    Mark, your ad is there, but it won't show up where it can be seen until one of the administrators checks it. That's to prevent scammers such as eBay and craigslist have. I'll bet it won't be long until you see your ad.

    I placed an add yesterday about 7:00 pm eastern time....yet to show up. I'm hoping it just hasen't been reviewed yet. Regardless, I neglected to put in where I am located. Is there a way to edit the ad at this time or is it not necessary as it seems on the left upper side you show who its from and their location. First post, so sorry for the questions. BTW the ad is for a kubota L-35. Thanks

    Smile Re: Private Party Ad Forum Rules, FAQ, Safe Selling Guidelines

    Here is what I did.
    My first ad I posted did not show up, so I posted another on a day or 2 later thinking that it would show up.
    It did not, so that is why I asked if I might have did some thing wrong in posting it.
    But if the ad is not showing up, I doubt you can edit it yet.
    Go into your profile and put in the town you are at, like mine.

    If you don't see the word edit on your post, then the time ran out.
    Just post a new post.

    Yes, there's a time limit on editing your posts, and after that time expires, you can no longer edit it. You can ask that a moderator edit it, or you can ask that they delete it and you re-post what you wanted posted.

    I would recommend just replying to the thread with the update (i.e. updated price or status).
