    Default Clarifiction of rules

    Just to clarify this .
    Can i post on this web site or the NAWCC Facebook page. I am looking for such and such clock, does anyone have one for sale or know where i could find it.
    I was told this is allowed but as far as i know it is not allowed.
    Thanks.

    Not allowed on the message board. Only parts and tools wanted are allowed on this message board. Don't know about the Facebook page.

    According to my state police commissioner, facebook is an unpoliced criminal haven.

    I do understand this question because I have a
    few pocket watches that I don't want to sell
    on ebay(not running that well) that maybe someone here may be
    looking for. I'm not looking to make any money on them, but would like
    them to go to someone who wants them(or needs their parts).

    I do agree that a "for sale" section does get complicated.
    But, a "I am looking for section" where no one can respond directly to
    the topic, they can only PM the person who is looking seems OK.
    So there is no discussion on the forum, it's all behind the scene.
    They can email or PM the person with an offer.

    There are many groups on Facebook that buy and sell pocket watches, perhaps you could try there.

    There are five NAWCC Facebook pages: the only one that allows unrestricted posting by its members is the "National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors (Official)" Facebook Group.

    That group has its own rules listing, similar to the rules used by this MB and inspired by them, though specifically crafted toward Facebook users under the preexisting TOS already present in the Facebook environment (which we the NAWCC do NOT own, and which is a hosted third-party website run by Facebook, Inc.).

    Those rules can be found here:

    http://www.nawcc.org/fbrules

    In addition, there is a sticky message posted at the top of that group with the following explanation:

    ABOUT OUR RULES:

    FYI, this group is not intended to be a commercial venue for buying and selling. We don't allow advertising ("I sell clocks!") or sales negotiation ("Who wants to buy my clock?") or links to active sales ("Go to this other site to buy this clock!").

    We DO allow requests for parts, info-sourcing ("Where would I buy one of these?"). But these posts aren't classified ads ("WANTED: A clock like this.") We DON'T want this group to become another scrolling sales list peppered with BUY-BUY-BUY and WANTED-WANTED-WANTED. Any move in that direction is strongly discouraged.

    It's a fine line. Any time users post a dollar value (or anything with a dollar sign "$" in it), it drifts toward appraisal. Any time anyone uses the word "sell" or "buy" it will attract moderator attention.

    All buying, selling, or negotiation regarding horological sales should be confined to private message and kept entirely off the main feed.

    I ad the caveat that "Does anyone know where I could find a ______" is less likely to be perceived as commercial than "I want to buy a _______."

    There are lots of watch/clock sales sites on Facebook. This isn't one.

    We appreciate your understanding.

    Regards,
    The Management

    So, that's the situation.

    Best,

    Markus

    There are some well moderated groups on Facebook, like the NAWCC page, to each his own.

    Agreed, Facebook does have it's advantages one being exposure to a younger audience. Not saying we are all old!
