|Hello to all who post on the BST forum....
The BST rules state that all listings must include a price. These rules further state that "make an offer," listings will be removed. Currently, the BST does not address listings where links to items for sale on auction sites are posted. There has been recent debate whether providing a link to an item for sale on an auction site satisfies the requirement that a price is listed. Because of this lack of clarity, the rules have not always been applied uniformly.
Your board of directors will be reviewing the current policy and look to make changes as needed to make a better buying/selling experience for all that use this forum.

|Though it’s not specifically mentioned in the rules, if someone lists a fan for sale, with a price and a picture. And it sells, the seller should Mark It As Sold. And perhaps the idea of marking it with$ XX is another way of saying sold. On other selling platforms like Facebook marketplace and ETSY, they ask that once the item has sold, it is marked as such. Or that the seller remove listing.As George mentioned, there is no way for our club to monitor back door sales. The only thing we can do is to make sure that sellers that post fans and alike are posted on the forum, follow the set of rules the Board of Directors has set forth...I can understand your frustration, there is nothing like seeing a fan and thinking that you want it, and then it’s been snatched up…
