Rules against posting OB equipment for sale?

Postby Mike Curran on Sun Dec 03, 2017 9:24 am

I'm wondering if there's any prohibition against posting (used) Outback items for sale on this forum. There's an old thread that attempted to address this but it got sidetracked and never was resolved.

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3376&hilit=For+sale

Thoughts?

Hi Mike,

I checked in with those responsible with the forum and can provide you with their statement:

By posting on the OutBack Power Technologies User Forum, participants agree to the terms shown when they registered for an account. Among these is agreement that they will not post advertising or solicitations. This includes solicitations for resale of OutBack products, regardless of new or used condition. This is to help ensure that the forum maintains focus on technical topics free from advertising. There are a variety of online platforms that are specifically designed for advertising and sales of new and/or used equipment which can far better serve this purpose than the Forum can. Thank you for helping to keep the Forum on topic.


Those terms and conditions are summarized here:
