Vendor Rules


1. Community Vendors must update their forums at least once per week. This entails answering inquiry messages, deleting outdated threads, and providing general forum maintenance. In essence you are the Admin of your own forum; therefore, you should keep the area clean and running smoothly. If you encounter problems or have questions about managing your forums, please contact the Community Vendor forum Moderator for assistance.

2. Community Vendors must maintain updated stock/price lists in their forums. These listings are to be kept current. Updates are required at least once a month and should include the posting date in the thread title. Failure to maintain your forum may result closure of your forum and suspension/revocation of your Vendor privileges.

3. All Community Vendors must draft a thread outlining their Terms and Conditions and "stick" the thread for all to see within their Vendor forums.

4. Community Vendors are allowed to post ONE thread per week in the MonsterFishKeepers.com Marketplace/Buy and Sell forum once Community Vendor status approval has been granted and while waiting for their designated Community Vendor forums to be created. Use of the VENDOR prefix in title of these sale threads is required. Community Vendors must also include the posting date in the title and announce current stock or new items, as usual. This thread may be bumped ONCE PER DAY unless naturally bumped by member questions and are subject to our MonsterFishKeepers.com Marketplace rules.

5. Once your Monster Aquaria Network Community Vendor forum has been established, you may continue to post ONE Vendor thread per week in our AquariaCentral.com and MonsterFishKeepers.com Marketplace Buy and Sell forum, as described above. A link to your Community Vendor forum must be posted in your weekly Marketplace thread and you should direct members to post their questions or comments within your respective forums, as Vendors may forget to review the general threads. Having members post in your Vendor forum makes it easier for you to track sales.

6. Unauthorized Community Vendor sales or advertisement posted outside designated AquariaCentral.com and MonsterFishkeepers.com Marketplace/ Monster Aquaria Network Community Vendor Forums or before Community Vendor status has been approved will be closed or deleted at staff discretion and without prior notice. Solicitation of AquariaCentral.com and MonsterFishKeepers.com members or affiliated site members directly in any manner is not permitted.

7. Community Vendors are subject to MonsterFishKeepers.com's Terms of Service and must abide by these guidelines at all times, the same as any other registered member.
