Recently I posted a comment on the forum of a particular card game advertising that I had cards of the set for sale that I wanted to sell through the GeekMarket. The thread got some responses, but was very quickly deleted by a Moderator. I received the following message:

Quote:
Arranging sales through the forums is not permitted. Please use the BGG Marketplace section of the game page. Geekbay may also be used for lots for which the Marketplace isn't well suited (such as CCG collections, large collections all being sold together, etc). Any sales should note that they will go through the Marketplace. Thank you.


I wasn't aware of this (particularly since I have seen similar threads here on various CCG sub-forums).

I am not contesting the deletion of my thread, but just want to clarify what is allowed. I had not yet posted the item on the GeekMarket when I made that thread.

In the future, when I want to sell through the GeekMarket, am I allowed to alert users of the forums that I have added an item to the GeekMarket in the forum of that particular game? I am particularly looking to sell various lots of collectible card games (CCG) that I have, for which people might not ordinarily check the GeekMarket regularly.

I sell quite a bit on the Geek Market, but I have never posted a thread about my items.

If you want to sell faster, there are the Geekbay forum threads(Region: BoardGameGeek » Forums » Gaming Related » GeekBay), but I mostly keep my eye on the MetaList for GeekList AUCTIONS Geeklist. I have bought stuff off them but never made a list myself. Checkout what seasoned sellers do there.

Hopefully you find this useful and best of luck!

No, "Promoting sales you have in the Marketplace is not permitted without explicit permission from the Community Manager"

Thank you for the clarification.

I have one further question:

Is the CCG Trades forum only for trades? I see occasional posts about selling cards there. Is that allowed?

Sorry about all the questions. I don't want to get an infraction or similar for something I did not know about

If it's a trade/sale post in the trades forum, it can specify that any sales will go through the marketplace. If it's not for trade, it should be an auction geeklist/ or be listed in the marketplace/ or possibly on Geekbay for collections being sold together, and note that it will go through the marketplace (GeekMarket).
