If you have not already, please make sure you also read the Rules and Regulations of this forum.

Listing Template

This template is optional, as is all other guidance in this post.

Spoiler! :
Subject (please choose one):
Buying: [What you want] for [What you will pay]
Selling: [What you have] for [What you want to be paid]
Exchange: [What you have] for [What you want]

Body:
I want [] and I will give you [] in return.

I am looking to do this [] time(s) with [one person] [multiple people].

The services must be completed within [] days.

This price is [not] negotiable.


There are three types of listing which can be posted here:

Buying - Things for points

The Subject of your listing should follow the form of:

Buying: [What you want] for [What you will pay]

Buying: Storybook participant for 3000 points
Buying: Five new followers for 50 points each

1. Keep the subject short and clear, then use the body of the post to explain yourself more thoroughly.

2. If there is a limit as to have many items you would like to buy, please state it. Please also make clear whether you're looking to buy the item(s) from one person or would be willing to buy the item multiple times or to split the items across multiple purchasers.

For example, if you're looking to buy 10 reviews, you should state if you want 10 reviews from one person or 10 reviews from 10 different people. You should also give any further requirements, such as the link to a specific work if the reviews are for a particular chapter/ poem.

3. Let people know if this is a fixed price or if you're open to negotiation.

4. Make sure you have the necessary points to buy the services you are requesting.

5. If there is a time-frame for this purchase, make sure you tell the seller how long they have to fulfill their part. This can be anything from a day after the agreement is reached to several months or even a year. Just be clear on your expectations.

Selling Points for things

The Subject of your listing should follow the form of:

Selling: [What you have] for [What you want to be paid]

Selling: 10 chapter reviews for 5000 points
Selling: 1 art commission for 500 points

1. Keep the subject short and clear, then use the body of the post to explain yourself more thoroughly.

2. Please be clear on how many items you are selling and whether the deal is open to only one person or multiple. For example, you can sell 10 reviews to 1 person or you can sell 10 reviews to 10 people. If you are selling 10 reviews to 10 people you need to be clear on whether this is 1 review each or 10 reviews each, for a total of 100 reviews.

3. Let people know if this is a fixed price or if you're open to negotiation.

4. Make sure you give a time-frame for the completion of your services. This can be anything from a day after the agreement is reached to several months or even a year. Just be clear on your expectations.

Exchange Things for things

The Subject of your listing should follow the form of:

Exchange: [What you have] for [What you want]

Exchange: 1 review for 1 review
Exchange: 1 wall post for 1 book recommendation

1. Keep the subject short and clear, then use the body of the post to explain yourself more thoroughly.

2. Please be clear on how many items you are trading and how many items you expect in return. Please also make it clear if this offer is open to one individual or can be claimed multiple times.

3. Let people know if you're open to negotiation.

4. Make sure you give a time-frame for the completion of your services and those by the other party. This can be anything from a day after the agreement is reached to several months or even a year. Just be clear on your expectations.

5. As the Lister of the trade, you will be expected to complete your side of the bargain first.
