for sale question

This shows me that you are aware of the rule because you have already been part of a discussion about post whoring and the classifieds but yet today you decide to throw out about 15 consecutive "cool truck" type posts in a row within a VERY brief amount of time and got caught.


Happy to have you aboard here on RCC , bit if you are only here to use the classifieds and have nothing to add, I suggest you buy a star.

Relax, sit back and read some threads, post a couple pictures of your RC's, find threads with questions that you know the answer to and take a moment or two and convey your knowledge and experiences....start a build thread of one of your most recent projects etc...

But.....

If you as you say "you have nothing meaningful to contribute", then perhaps you are on the wrong forum.

Yet if you own an RC, have found us on the Internet and even took the time to register here... You surely must have something meaningful to convey to everyone. You would be surprised at how easy this group is to please with a few cool pictures here and there
or even a story commiserating a bad day of crawling and breaking part after part

Take a deep breath and come at it all again.... If you own a RC, we want to see it and hear about it

I like the 30/30 rule. On one of the other RC sites I have been a member of for awhile when buying or selling I am not sure who to trust.
I have bought from members with 0 trader rating and gotten good stuff. I recently bought a 2 cell lipo from a newer member with a good trader rating and got a paper weight.
I just have joined but I am liking what I see so far

yes you can use paypal. its actually the preferred method. i will give the buyer my paypal address via private message once they private message me saying they want to buy a particular item. though, realize, here on rcc, and paypal, if you are paying for goods and/or services, you MUST use the "paying for goods or services" option. No gifting allowed. yes, this does allow paypal to take a small percentage of your money, but it also covers the seller and the buyer incase something bad happens, or a deal goes sour. for instance, you contact someone saying you want an item. they guive you their paypal address and you pay. but, they never ship the item. with paypal user protection, your are covered. you can simply open up a dispute. this allows paypal to look into the transaction. they will contact the seller and ask their side of it. Please note, i have NEVER been ripped off here on rcc. we are a great bunch of guys and always do the right thing. i have, however, been ripped off on ebay. i opened a dispute, and in both cases, got my money back in 7 - 10 days.

when you post something for sale can you post a link to another site that shows all the details of the item? ie the traxxas forums?

Don't think so. Is it really that hard to retype it out here?

the 30/30 rule is a good way to weed out scamers. im still not a huge fan. i am still kind of new to the crawler thing. but have jumped in head first. ive been on this forum for a month or two, have a build thread. starting a second one soon. yet still have not unlocked the classifieds. i guess it just sux to be me.

Spend $20 and buy a star guys. It'll unlock the classifieds, you can then use a avatar adn you'll most definately make the $20 back within your first couple purchases. Not to mention being able to enter giveaways. In 2012 alone there were several thousands of dollars worth of stuff just given away. Its well worth the money.

Na! I'm super new, haven't bought my green star or reached my 30/30 yet. In the short amount of time I've been on here I've met ( email met) John, Erik D, mattzilla and a handful of other dudes that only want to see the hobby grow in a healthy way. I now have better motors, one sick ass berg ( that I love regardless of if I can post pics) and a one off wraith that enjoy equally. It's not about knowing stuff. You could just ask 30 questions and be a better person and hobiest for it.

You know it is funny really. I am all over ebay and the rest of the known world via the internet trying to buy a set up and really it seems to come down to right time and place. Will make my 30/30 and if the classifieds are worth the time, then a donation for the star and extras will be a Plus. Besides great people and learning spot...

I also am waiting for my 30/30. I do not have an unlimited budget and twenty bucks can buy me what I need to make my own links or something I need. I am all for supporting something great (and so far this is the best forum...for scx10 info) and in time I may buy a star, but cannot afford it now.

I've read the posts here, and there is nothing wrong with protecting the buyers (and the sellers). The world has become a greedy cesspool of get money quick type of people. It makes sense to try something to weed them out and the 30\30 rule is a smart way to go about it. Not only that everyone that posted in this thread seems to only want whats best for the site ... good on ya!

Cheers

As long as you meet the requirements it should be at the bottom of the list after all the states and country's. It'll be marked classifieds and have the wanted, for sale, and feedback in it.

Popping my post cherry! I am the super lurker! 3years yesterday I have been on here after buying a losi mrc. I have yet to post because everything has been answered already. Any question or comment I have had other than "cool truck" would be redundant. I have saved for the past 3years for a scale rig and finally acquired enough, so yes 20 is a lot of money to me. But it looks like there is no other option for me. Hopefully there will be something in the classifieds for me.

Good to see the first post mate, you don't just have to post to ask questions though as I'm sure you could add something useful even if it's some pics of your new crawler, and the $20 is well worth it, not just for the classifieds but also the giveaways and extra site privileges you get.
