The Forum is Closed. I do not expect to re-open it.
Those interested in testing a beta photography equipment selling board may contact me to signup. This is for test purposes only, and only the first 15 who have 30
or more posts will be accepted. If you do not have at least 30
posts, you will have to wait for a later test, or for the final implementation.
The Beta has been extended for about 2 months, because a major revision to the forum is in the works and its wise to test on that before any firm implementation. I typically give members a two month trial period, but can extend it on request.
I'll let those who are accepted know, and post a update here when the beta is full. I don't know when the beta will be ready to start, we have had some very preliminary tests with the moderators and three members.
If all works out, then the site owner (Craig) will decide on giving a ok to open it up to a wide group of users.
The Beta will have its members removed from the new selling board (Not from CR) before it can move to production, this is a limitation of the subscription based software.
The Production Version will likely be available only to members who have a significant number of posts. It is also planned to charge a fee (TBD) via PayPal to use the service. The fee will probably be $15 for a 90 day period, but its not determined.
Canon Rumors is not responsible for any scamming or failure of purchased equipment to meet your expectations. We merely put you in touch, but from that point on, you must accept the risk.
Using PayPal can reduce the risk, you must use it properly.
Anyone caught misusing PayPal by violating or flaunting their rules will be permanently banned. For example, PayPal rules do not allow asking buyers to pay surcharges.
"4.6 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions."https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full?country.x=US&locale.x=en_US
