Default auction

Is there a place on RCU in the classifieds, where you can post an ad about a link to stuff you have for sale on Ebay.

I know that cnczone has a separate listing for links to auctions.

thanks.

Eric

No. RCU rules don't allow promotion of ebay ads. Our position is that everyone knows how to find ebay and rcu should not be a dumping ground for promoting ads there. Also we have our own auction which is free compared to ebay's and we have more hardcore rc users here then ebay gets.

You are welcome.

An exception to note regarding links is if a product on ebay provides a solution to a members question in an an ongoing thread a link to that solution is allowed. For example if I wanted to know how to keep from breathing fiberglass fumes in while cutting cowls and a member pointed me to a respirator that was for auction on ebay it would be fine. But "check out my xyz on ebay" would not be allowed because it is just a promotion of an ad (advertisement) in our discussion forums which isn't what members want littered throughout our forums. Easier to just go to ebay and search or better yet hit the RCU marketplace classified or auction Our pricing is better for sellers (FREE) and our traffic is huge. You can feature your item from our market in our discussion forums and then it will show in all appropriate forums to help promote your item and that enhancement is only 2 bux.
