Please read the forum rules!

General Posting Rules

Staying on Topic
Do your best not to deviate too much from the thread topic when posting. Tangential conversations will be moved to more appropriate areas or deleted.

Topic Categories
The forum is still under development and growing, so we don't have sub forums for everything. However, you can post your new topic in the General Forum and if I think it necessitates its own category, I will create one for you. That said, you should also be aware of the current sub forum topics as an appropriate topic may already exist.

Double Posting
Please refrain from making two posts in a row, in the same topic, without anyone else posting in between. You must wait until someone else posts before you post again. You can bump a thread if you're seeking a reply from others after a period of 24 hours, but double+ posts will be merged or deleted. Use the edit button if you want to add more to your previous post.

Literacy Clause
Being that this is an internet forum, we're all here to read what others have to say, and write some things of our own. It should be common sense that how we write our posts reflects on ourselves, as well as either invites others to read our posts, or makes them laugh at our level of idiocy.

Nobody is asking you to be a human dictionary, or spell perfectly all of the time - everyone makes mistakes. We are, however, asking you to put an effort into making good, quality, and easily readable posts. Simply:

  • Don't use short truncations or single letter representations of words. It doesn't save you any time, it just makes you look stupid. Write out the word completely if you have something to say.
  • Use punctuation. Even a 13 year old should be capable of at least using periods and commas, and capitalizing - the most basic forms of punctuation. Nobody wants to read a post that spans half a page without a single period or comma.
  • Use paragraphs in long posts.
Posts or threads containing AOL speak or other silly truncations will be subject to being edited, deleted, or closed.[/quote]

Rules for Classifieds

The Classifieds forum has its own set of specific rules and has a required 25 post minimum to participate. WARNING: Do not spam the forums to reach the required minimum, your posts will be deleted or your account banned outright. Please read the rules before posting in this forum. KSOC is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any loss due to any sale or exchange of any item in the Classifieds forum. Buyer beware!

The following rules are made for the protection of all. Failure to comply with the rules will result in suspension of your privileges to post in this forum, or forfeiture of your membership according to the severity of the infraction. The moderators and administrators of this board reserve the right to modify, edit, move or delete any part or all of a post or thread for any reason stated above. KSOC also reserves the right to ban any user, at any time, and for any reason.

In the instance that we are contacted about any member here being a "bad trader" or a "troll," we reserve the right to turn any and all IP and personal information we have on that member over to any law enforcement authorities and/or any other group or individuals we desire. If you do not agree with this rule, do not trade on this forum.

If you have any problems or questions, feel free to address your inquiries to the listed forum Moderators or Administrators by PM.

  1. The SUBJECT of your thread should reflect the type of transaction FS (For Sale), FT (For Trade), WTB (Want to Buy) or WTTF (Want to Trade For)
  2. FS, FT, and WTTF threads must contain PICTURES of the actual item being offered. No exceptions.

  8. CONSOLIDATE Threads. Do not post multiple threads, keep all your FS/FT deals in one thread, and all WTB/WTTF deals in a different thread. You should only have one FS/FT and one WTB/WTTF thread active at any one time. When making a new thread, include items from the old thread.
  9. No excessive BUMPING of your thread. Excessive bumping using Bump, TTT, ^^^, or other multiple wording to place your thread at the top is limited to 6 hours apart. Repeated bumping by another member within the 6 hour minimum will not be tolerated. Repeated long term bumping of a thread will not be allowed. Any abuse of the bumping rules is to be determined at the discretion of the moderators and administrators over and beyond the stated rules on a case by case basis.
  10. You must Post a PRICE unless the item is purely FT. (trading for cash still means FS)

  18. No LINKING to other sites except for image hosting. Do not steal bandwidth from others, host your own images or use an image hosting site such as" rel="nofollow" onclick="'_blank'; or a similiar hosting site.
  19. No SHOUTING. If you don't know, THIS IS SHOUTING. This applies to thread titles also.
  20. No FLAMING or in-before-the-lock posts.
  21. No THREAD CRAPPING. It is rude and will not be tolerated. If you have an issue with the price, the seller or the conditions of the sale, contact the seller directly, do not post it in the thread.

  24. GROUP buys are not allowed.
  25. The buying, selling, trading or solicitation of SERVICES is prohibited.
  26. Charging fees for PayPal is not allowed, nor is requesting a "gift" payment for goods (which gives the buyer no protection). Both violate PayPal's TOS.
