    Fake Bids

    Any member who is found to be bidding in an attempt to increase the final selling price for the seller may receive infractions and in certain cases a ban. This also applies to members who win bids but fail to continue with purchasing without a valid reason.

    Members who win bids and fail to follow through with purchases may receive warnings and in certain cases a ban. This is to prevent bidding in order to gain higher selling prices for the seller.


    Sellers who claim to receive a bid over private message or on another web site where it may also be for sale must provide proof to a staff member if requested to do so.

The traffic statics should be relevant and not older than one month. Online guides like Alexa or Compete are not to be used as a guide to traffic levels nor should any online money value guide be used as an indicator of revenue. Screenshots of Paypal or similar approved must be provided to confirm any revenue claims. For various income sources a break down of these sources must be provided.

    Bumping Threads
    Bumping your own thread, or asking people to bump your thread (be that in the chat box or the forums) is expressly forbidden. Under no circumstances are you allowed to bump your marketplace thread.

    If, however, your sales thread gets pushed to the inner pages and you believe it may generate interest if it's exposed to the rest of the community, you may create an identical thread no less than 4 weeks after the original thread. Before creating the identical thread, please report your original thread and a member of the staff will lock it to avoid potential confusion arising out of two open threads.


    WHMCS
    All sales that involve the use of WHMCS, will now have to have WHMCS licensed. The use of NULLED WHMCS is NOT allowed.


    Disclaimer
    WJunction is not liable or responsible for any transaction made. We are only providing means to enable webmasters and users to trade amongst themselves. If any problem occurs, please report them and we will do the best we can to rectify it, although we're limited with what we can do.
    For the sake of impartiality and fairness staff members, with the exception of administrators, are not allowed to delete, edit or remove comments from their own sales, trade or similar threads and are required to report the topic like other members.

    However, as you all know, we're bound to face a few scammers here and there. So use your web smarts to figure out if this is a good trade or not.

    Dear WJunction Members

    Recently we've allowed a some what deregulated market place and community cooperative like sections and we've decided that it's started to go a little too far. For this reason, as of immediately, we'll no longer be allowing threads where you can hire "uploaders" or offer your service for "uploading". This is for all sections.

    Legitimate or not, this is not a practice that we wish to allow and following a few days for our members to adjust to these changes, any threads in a similar nature to "Hiring uploader" or "Offering uploader services" will result in an infraction/ban. Paid or unpaid, makes no difference. This isn't a move about limiting freedom of speech, not at all. We simply wish to cease "market" activities on our boards for these services.

    The issue is not with the file hosts themselves, rather the methods of hiring and offering these services for third party websites. Threads such as "I'll upload popular movies for $1 a day" just pushed us over the edge... We do not recommend copyright infringement as a tool of making income (or at all, for that matter). If you're a user on here at the point of offering/hiring uploader services and even paying for them on the premise of copyright infringement: get a job instead. You can still freely discuss file hosts, websites, etc. We value our members freedom of speech. This is a forum, after all.

    You can still post about hiring staff and everything else for your websites, seeking partnerships, advertisers, etc, this is all fine. It's important that members understand where the line has been drawn in the sand. We're limiting a very precise type of thread only.

    The activity we're banning is also discouraged via the PM system.

    A slight reminder to those who exchange currencies via PM:

    If you are scammed, we cannot help* you. We have rules for a reason, follow them and you shouldn't get scammed (only if you're stupid enough - You may).

    *We may at our discretion ban both the scammer and the user requesting the exchange.

    It seems users don't read general rules, and this is something that needs to be cleared.

    Selling sites that are based on free scripts such as SMF, Joomla or Wordpress is allowed.

    Selling sites that are based on paid license, such as vBulletin forums, DLE, or IPB is NOT ALLOWED if you don't have legit license. If you DO own license, you need to show us the proof.

    Nulled forum = warez
    You cannot sell that in here. Period.

    The rule also includes premium/paid themes since they are somebody's property. You cannot sell a Wordpress/Joomla/SMF/phpBB/VB/IPB etc site with a premium/paid theme installed on it without having its ownership rights.
