|Topic: Transaction Guidelines|
Please know and understand that any transactions that take place between users of [b]The Magic Café[/b], are at the sole risk of said users.
[b]The Magic Café[/b] does [b]not[/b] vouch for the legitimacy of any items advertised / listed in the [b]The Trading Room[/b] forum.
We highly suggest you carefully evaluate any offers and not send money / merchandise to these advertisers unless you are certain you know with whom you are dealing and you know all the terms and conditions of any offers.
We ([b]The Magic Café[/b]) cannot, and will not, be held responsible, under [i]any circumstances[/i], for said transactions.
Remember, you buy, sell or trade at your [b]own risk![/b]. If you are burned on a transaction, you need to handle this privately, [b]not[/b] on the Magic Café. Members who make postings complaining about bad transactions they have had will have those posts deleted with no notice or explanation given, simple as that.
Unlike Ebay and other auction services, we are [b]not[/b] involved, other than providing a place for interested parties to meet. Any disputes arising between the parties involved must be [i]handled privately by email[/i], not in [b]The Magic Café[/b].
This trading area is provided as a [i]courtesy[/i] to our Magic Café members, and is [b]not[/b] to be used for [i]commercial[/i] use. [b]No dealers please![/b] Dealers wishing to sell their products may purchase advertising space in the Magic Café. Please inquire, thanks. Any ads posted by [b]dealers[/b] will be [i]removed with no explanation[/i] given. A second offense will result in a loss of all Café privileges.
We provide this area for regular members who [i]contribute[/i] valuable information to the Café. It is here that these folks can buy, sell or trade playing card items such as decks, card clips, etc., and do so without having to spend their hard earned cash. :nod:
All for sale topics must include an asking price. This is only fair to those interested in finding a "good deal". Asking for offers could be interpreted as conducting an auction. Such posts will be removed, no questions asked.
Posts which advertise multiple items are okay (multiple items does not mean a hundred items, if you know what I mean. So let's use good judgement.), as long as [b]all[/b] the items listed meet the requirements and follow the rules of the forum.
Absolutely [b]No[/b] posts advertising items (whether [b]with[/b] or [b]without[/b] links) to auction sites such as [b]Ebay[/b] (the only exception would be linking to an auction site which is currently a Café sponsor and has a banner on our website) will be allowed. Members looking for items on auction sites should pay those sites a visit. Remember also that the Trading Room is a benefit of Café membership and is [b]NOT[/b] to be used to post items that friends, acquaintances or relatives may have for sale or trade. Posts that violate this rule will be removed. [i]No exceptions![/i].
[i]QUANTITY RESTRICTIONS:[/i] Regardless of the item (e.g, Deck, card clip, etc.), no more than 2 of any one item may be offered for sale or trade.
[i]QUALITY CONTROL:[/i] Because of the rising problem with several manufacturers making knock-off's of other people's hard work, any post(s) offering products (that in our opinion are copies or knock-offs of the original items) will be deleted with no reason or explanation given.
[b]Topic Headings:[/b] When posting your item(s) we ask that you do NOT list the actual price, terms , etc in the topic heading. Prices are to be listed in the content of your posting only. Example: Effect A only $25 - Effect B at 50% off!. As the Magic Café is not an auction site, posts without a price or stating "make an offer" will be returned to the originator.
[b]Topic Subject Matter:[/b] Regardless of the item(s) in question, any topics / posts which discuss the reputation of any seller(s) on the Café (good or bad) that has not been authorized by administration will be removed with no notice given. The area is for the posting of items for sale or trade, not to review the selling or trading habits of other members. You buy, sell or trade at your own risk.
[b]Notice:[/b] Members who violate [b]any[/b] of the above rules will have their post(s) advertising such items removed, and may be banned from the Café permanently.
Remember, the ability to use the Trading Room is a priviledge and [i]NOT[/i] a right. Members may lose all access to the Trading Room at any time and with no notice or reason given.
Because items are often sold or traded quickly, members may occasionally forget to post that the transaction is complete. [b]To conserve bandwidth and avoid confusion, posts will be automatically removed 10 days from the original insertion date[/b].
"Bumping" is not allowed. This uses up vauluable bandwidth and causes newer postings by other members to be driven farther down in the forum which isn't fair to them. Post that use "bumping" to bring the topic to the top of the list will be deleted, no questions asked. Should you still wish to sell or trade the item, you may of course repost.
Thank You. Good luck and happy trading! :)
