Please note that while direct advertising of items for sale by a poster is NOT allowed in the Forum threads we will permit occasional informative links to RARE insect specimens for sale elsewhere on the web to be included in a post; as long as the person who posts the link is doing so purely in order to inform the members of the availability of a very unusual insect. The poster MUST not in any way directly benefit from the specimen on sale.
Anyone who wishes to advertise their own specimens or other entomology related items for sale are welcome to post in the Sell / Exchange section. See the rules at collector-secret.proboards.com/thread/57/rules-sell-exchange-category explaining how members can post adverts in that section. These rules are in place to ensure that only bona-fide sellers can advertise, as we wish to protect the members from scammers and spammers.
Any advertising in posts outside the Sell / Exchange section will be subject to moderation and is likely to be deleted.
I would also advise that on this Forum we will not allow any discussion about the veracity or reputation of sellers mentioned in a post, other than ACCEPTABLE comments in the Trading Feedbacks section.
