    Exclamation Dibs rule

    Due to some past issues with people replying to ads and calling "dibs", which is basically claiming all rights to a sale, we wish to post our policy on this subject.

    "Calling dibs" isn't valid here. There are many reasons for this.

    1. Seller has the ultimate right to sell to whoever he chooses, as well as the right to refuse to sell to someone for whatever reason.

    2. Seller could have this item advertised in the regional forum, classified forum, and maybe 10 other websites and the local newspaper. Its impossible to claim "dibs" on a sale that you might not have seen first. You might be the first to reply in a thread, but that doesn't mean 10 people have already emailed the seller about it.

    3. Calling "dibs" sometimes makes other potential buyers lose interest in the sale. This really sucks when the guy calling "dibs" is just a dreamer or is trying to lowball the seller, and ends up not buying the item. The other buyers will probably be long gone by then, and have bought similar items from someone else.

    So, please keep in mind that "calling dibs" on something does NOT guarantee you the sale of the item. Therefore, do not waste your time calling dibs. Just send a PM or email to the seller and discuss things privately. Once your sale is 100% confirmed and you sent the funds, you may reply that it is sold to you.
