By posting in this forum you are acknowledging that you have read and agree to the following rules/disclaimer:

How to Title Your Post

1. "For Sale" ad titles should look like this: "For Sale: (brief description)" (do not preface them with 'FS', or 'F/S' or 'For Sell' or any other combination)

2. "For Trade" ad titles should look like this: "For Trade: (brief description)"

3. "Wanted to Buy" ad titles should look like this: "WTB: (brief description)"

What to Include in Your Ad (in this order)

Item Description:
Asking Price (if you want to sell):
Offering Price (if you want to buy):
Email Address:
Your Location:
Picture(s) (if available):

* Please do not include phone numbers*
Notes: Proper formatting of your ad is critical.
Ads that do not follow the proper formatting will be deleted.


Minimum Post Count/Membership Duration Required

You must have a minimum of 100 posts* (see note below), and have been a member for a minimum of 30 days, in order to place an ad here. We consider the ability to post an ad a privilege extended to our active members, and we believe this rule helps to prevent scammers from signing up simply to take advantage of people.

This rule is non-negotiable. If you ignore it your ad will be deleted and/or it will result in your account being placed into temporary or permanent suspension (banning) of your ability to participate in any or all of the areas on the Site.

Please do not make excessive number of posts just to reach the minimum number of 100 posts and place an ad. This is something that the staff of does track. If you are found to be making excessive number of posts just to achieve 100 posts to place an ad, your ad will be deleted and/or it will result in your account being placed into temporary or permanent suspension (banning) of your ability to participate in any or all of the areas on the Site.

One Item Per Ad

Please limit each ad to one item (unless the parts are being sold as a set or group). Multiple-item ads will only be allowed with the approval of the forum administrator or designate.

Bumping Ads

Bumping ads refers to placing a response to an ad, which (in many cases) attracts members to the ad because it is a new or recent post since their last visit.

Please limit ad bumping (even with phrases like 'to the top', 'TTT' or 'bump' posts) to no more than once in a 24-hour period. A maximum of three bumps will be allowed per ad. Even if there is no interest in your ad after three "bumps", members can still find your posted item through a search of our forum. Please include information in your ad that will help during searches.

Ad Time Limit

All ads have a three (3) month time limit. After three (3) months ads may be deleted by the staff. At that point if your item has not sold it can be listed again.

No 3rd Party Ad Listings

Do not place ads on others' behalf (such as friends, family members, businesses, and other current and/or banned Fiesta Faction members). You may only place an ad for an item that legally belongs to you and is in your physical possession.

No Commercial Posts

You may not post multiple, new items for sale.

Terms for Fiesta Faction sponsors will be forthcoming.

At this time, Fiesta Faction does not allow any direct promotion of members' for-profit goods and/or services. This includes links within and/or embedded in signatures and/or member profiles. If you wish to promote your goods and/or services, we ask that you consider becoming a site sponsor.

No Posting or Cross Linking

Do not post ads or links to ads in any forum outside of the Classifieds. The one exception to this rule is that you may include a link back to your ad in your signature. Keep in mind though, that signatures can only be a maximum of 6-lines, including line spaces.


Posting in all capital letters is similar to shouting on Internet forums. It makes it very difficult to read, and it may annoy other members. It is also not allowed per our Terms of Use.

Feeler Posts

"Feeler Posts" refer to those made to get a sense whether an item will sell or not. Feeler Posts are not allowed on Fiesta Faction.

Replying to Posts

Do NOT take the thread off topic.

Do NOT cherry pick (post your own parts for sale in someone else's ad).

Do NOT make harassing comments regarding the ad and/or the item being advertised (this includes the quality, price, seller, other members, etc.).

For any concerns regarding pricing, please discuss them in private messaging (PM) with the seller and not in the thread. We remind you that the person placing the ad has a right to ask for whatever price they choose.

Responding to Ads

Please keep replies to ads relevant to the post. Feel free to ask questions regarding the item, acknowledge your interest to buy, etc. You may also want to try and contact the buyer/seller via the email address listed in the ad and/or by sending them a PM. See further details relating to this under "RESTRICTIONS" below.

Note: The Classified Forums are not 'Discussion' forums. If someone asks the seller a question, leave the question to be answered by the seller. Please do not interfere with the transaction.

After the Sale

Once the item is sold, please edit the original post to include *SOLD* at the top of the post.

Do not delete the contents of your ad once they are sold. That description may come in handy if a buyer was to claim that they did not receive what was advertised. We do our best to maintain a separate copy of these ads in case problems arise after the sale.

The original poster (seller / buyer) is requested to PM a moderator in this section when one of the following criteria apply:

1. The item for sale is sold and the thread should be closed.
2. The item that is requested is found and the thread should be closed.


If you find you are having a problem during the transaction with either the seller or buyer, and/or if your thread is in need of moderation please contact a forum moderator or administrator to obtain assistance. We make no guarantees for resolving every issue, but we will do what we can to help. If someone turns out to be a scammer, the sooner we can put a stop to their activities here the safer it will be for everyone else.


We reserve the right to delete any ad, at any time, for any reason. We also reserve the right to remove anyone's access to the Classified forums at any time for not following these rules.

The forum moderators and administrators are always here to help. If you have any questions or concerns or difficulties regarding the Classifieds section, please don't hesitate to ask :)
