Hopefully this will clear up the continuing confusion about how the FS/T section works. READ the sticky, and it will become clear.

ATTENTION: All For Sale/Trade classified ads will be filtered. This means your post will not show up immediately, but will be held up by our moderator for approval. Please do not post your ad multiple times, as this will only delay your ad further. Also, no new products, dealers or links to E-Bay auctions are allowed. The classified section is here so Talk Tennis members can sell and trade used personal equipment only. Posts by dealers, clubs and pros for used demo stock, old stock or overstocked items will not be approved.

Unless you are making a change to your ad, such as lowering the price of items, we do not allow bumps to bring a post back to the top of the forum.

Please clearly define the age and condition of each item in a classified ad. Condition should be rated on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being new. Having an "out of 10" rating is mandatory, as ads without this rating will be automatically hard deleted. Posts identifying a product's condition from 9.6 - 10.0 will be refused, as we'll assume this means new. If the age and condition of each item is not listed we will assume it is new and the entire post will be deleted. If selling multiple items and one violates a policy, the entire post will be deleted.

We reserve the right to refuse any ad.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Here is how to improve your chances of getting a FS/T thread approved!

Follow this checklist, and you will greatly increase your chances.


Post an "out of 10" rating. Example: 8.0/10
INCLUDE DETAILS in your post. This is especially important if your frame is in very good shape (9+/10). If you state "excellent condition, only used a few times," Chances are you WILL NOT pass the filter. Include details, people.
Include contact information. It's a pain for us to have to approve EVERY "interested" post after your initial post.
Include a picture whenever possible.
Include other pertinent info, leaving details out only makes the filtering admin/mod think twice. Make it easier for US.

"The classified section is here so Talk Tennis members can sell and trade used personal equipment only."

Only related to tennis, right?

And is it mandatory to have a price in the post?

As for now, the items are only related to tennis, although if you are trying to trade something (lets say electronics), you might be able to get approved if you're trading for tennis gear? It hasn't been much of an issue thus far, I'd check with the admins.

It isn't strictly "required" to have a price in the post, but IMO it's so much easier for EVERYONE involved to have a price posted. (not required in the sense that your ad can still be passed w/o price, but it's much better to)

TW Staff

Regardless of the age of the racquet, if it hasn't been hit with, it's considered new! I'm not sure how difficult that is to understand, not to mention this is a FREE service we provide for anyone and everyone. Please respect the policies and rules. Also, there are plenty of other avenues where you can sell whatever you like, if you don't like our 'weak criteria'.

No. Unfortunately that is near impossible to do without serious leg work on the admin team's part.

There is something DEFINITELY wrong with the 'auto-approver' on posts here. I followed this thread and made sure that 1-5 are met in my post. None of my two posts showed up, yet I see a bunch of posts in here with little information, no rating, nor even a grip size. Why even bother.

Extreme?

Please keep in mind that we allow anyone to be a member of this board, not just Tennis Warehouse customers, as well as we do not charge you to place classified ads.

We do what we can with the staff we have and feel getting classifieds filtered and posted within 1 business day is more than sufficient for what we charge.

Sometimes they don't update on the weekends.

I'm sure most, if not all, of us understand why it needs to be filter and why some days it takes longer than others.

One of your submitted ads didn't have a rating. I think you realized that and posted it again with a rating which is now up. This is a moderated forum where all ads go through an approval process. This can take up to one full business day. (Being that you've been on this board before, I thought you'd have known that).

Hi guys -

Just submitted a classified post for the third time, removing "nearly new" from my wording - even though in my description it's clear nothing is new and everything has been played.

Replaced with longer description in good faith, and I sincerely hope third time's the charm. ;)

I posted an ad about 4 days ago..
or 5 days ago and it still hasnt showed up.

I guess that is a 100% clear sign it got rejected?

I put EVERYTHING the rules asked for...

It was 3 rackets and a bag for sale...

I realize you wouldnt tell me if it got deleted or not, so I
am jumping to conclusions and just accepting that it got deleted..

I cant think of a single reason why though?
Could it be that I have no posts? feedback?
What might be the reason???

I would rather sell my rackets on here to help out a fellow tennis
player, as opposed to putting them on **** and dealing with all
the hassle and fees. Ive done it in the past, but figured I would help
out a board member first...

Any ideas moderators?

Looking to sell the following:

Kblade tour grip 4 3/8 7.5/10 strung with Pacific x force 18 - $105 shipped

Pure Storm Ltd grip 4 1/4 (notice that babolat grip is a bit bigger than wilson's so 4 1/4 is almost equivalent to 4 3/8 for a wilson racquet) 9.5/10 strung with Ashaway kevlar 18(main)/babolat pro hurricane 18 (cross) - $140 shipped

Hi TW i posted a FS to you and i think will be under scrutiny.
I didnt read all the rules before I posted and ive made a couple of mistakes.
I forgot the grip sizes and I needed to add some more info on the i.prestige thats is in great condition. Its in great condition because its always been my number 2 racket so thats why I rated it 9.5 esp for a racket of its age. Its prob a 9/10 then under your rules.
If its accepted I will post the extra details underneath the original post.

08-02-2009, 03:54 AM
Been several days since listing my i.prestiges. Have noticed a number of threads with 'easily 9.5', 'only used a few times' etc etc obvious threads that these are brand new rackets that players dont like and want to get rid.
Mine are two 10 year old rackets that are in great nick an i cant get them on?????
Anyway dont bother they are sold now!
Just thought maybe Id give a chance to TW followers as a lot of them are keen on the 'Made in Austria' rackets.

TW mods take a look at pbnation.com, it is a paintball website for the players by players similar to what the tennis warehouse forums are. pbnation never had an substantial financial backing such as tennis warehouse to support the web forums, if they can do it on donations and ad revenue what can you do with the support of a large company?

Look at the B/S/T forums, it grew from only having b/s/t to have pro players equipment, new equipment, and unique categories for specific items for sale.

The approval process is not necessary, let the forums be regulated by the users, if the user does not find the post appropriate then they can use the report to a mod button and if you dont have one yet I suggest you look into that.

If you are worried about what people are writing in their threads I would focus on the Pro Player and results sections, I have never in my life seen more flaming and ridiculous threads on any other website.

The 24 hr and rating from 1- 10 not a necessary system.

I am only looking to offer support for the tennis talk forums and want to see it grow.

We appreciate your feedback, however, we find that the rating and approval system is highly necessary. We don't allow the selling of new products because, well, we have a website for that. It wouldn't make much sense to allow new product to be sold on our message board. It opens the door for dealers to come in and use it as a 'free' selling service. (Since we don't charge anything to place ads). Same with the ratings/approval process. If we let ads go through without being approved, once again, those selling new items could make sales most times before posts would even be reported.

Unfortunately too many dishonest users have taken advantage of our classifieds and blatantly sidestepped our guidelines, forcing us to make safeguards to keep our users "honest".

Spencer, TW.

Yep, the sidestepping still occurs, I know there are users who sneak almost new/new gear through the system, and this does take sales away from the TW site, which is an obvious problem. It is BECAUSE the forums are "backed" (maintained) by a company that this is necessary. As Spencer said, it wouldn't exactly be a great system if a competitor came in and undercut TW on their own forums...

For instance, I am no dealer or anything and I have a new Wilson Jack Kramer wood racket probably from the 70s. I mean you guys don't even have any wood rackets for sale, let alone old Jack Kramers, so how is it taking away sales from you guys? Why not allow new rackets to be sold as long as TW doesn't offer the same racket? That might invite more collectors/dealers I'd imagine, but that would simply increase the popularity of the Tennis Warehouse website which is a good thing for you guys or you wouldn't have the forums to begin with.

Another approach could be something similar to Youtube, ****, and other websites. Let anything be posted and if the content doesn't meet your regulations, rely on the TW users to report it. That way you guys don't have to look through every post and new posts show up immediately. I bet some people might even volunteer to be a moderator or something and clean up bad posts.

Just my 2 cents. Thanks for reading.

Ok, I think I have followed the guidelines to a T. Just submitted and 12:56 PM (ET) on 1\18. Hopefully it will go through soon.


Also posted a "Wanted" ad about an hour ago. Waiting on it.

I've been trying to post in the Wanted forum for some time and now I'm not even getting the message that it has to be approved, so it looks like I'm automatically banned from there.

PLEASE NOTE: Although I live in New Zealand, I have an alternative shipping address in the USA (Madison, WI), to which any racquets I buy will be shipped. I pay via Paypal and a few people here can vouch for me - e.g. schu47, TMR and Bud.

Your "wanted" ad has been posted. Sorry it took so long, but ads are not always moderated on the weekends.

Okay. Why is there a delay in new thread posts and responses on this forum???
Because all submitted threads/posts must first conform to our guidelines before they can be posted. Unfortunately, the past has proven that the "honor system" doesn't work in this forum for placing ads as many ads have to be deleted on a daily basis.

I don't think the mods really check
Ask the users whose ads don't show up because they didn't follow the posting guidelines. I think they'd disagree with you.

and it would make things move much more smoothly if we could just post instantly.
I disagree. If that were the case, the classifieds would get littered with off topic spam as well as ads that don't meet guidelines. We are adamant about the guidelines, and we spend time to keep it as clean as we can, and we do it all for the low cost of "free". Those long time users that have bought and sold here for years understand the premise of what we do, and appreciate the fact that they have a great avenue to buy and sell their used personal tennis gear at no cost.


Regards,

Spencer, TW.
