The sale of Syringes???
    #2290232 - 01/31/04 07:39 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hey, I just got a message reprimanding me for posting a thread trying to buy spore syringes.. The excuse I got was something to do with the shroomerys sponsers needing to make money... Wouldnt it be more.. I dont know whats the word "Shroomery Like" to give people the freedom to buy or sell a legal product instead of forcing them to buy sometimes overpriced syringes from vendors.

Not allowing it goes against what.. The whole "Shroomery" stands for, or something of that sort. Maybe I dont know some specific rules or other reasons why this isnt allowed but the sponsers one didnt seem to right.

Blazed and confused

Read the Marketplace rules.

I'm sure there are plenty of people who would be happy to give you or trade a free print if you really wanted. We don't want to allow people to sell these products for two reasons (as I see it):
  • Our vendors support this community by purchasing ads. If we allow everyone to start undercutting their business, then the vendors won't want to use our community to get the word out on their products since the market will get saturated and it will end up hurting the community and possibly killin' it all together.
  • Limited sales would probably be OK, but money is a powerful thing and before you know it we'd have people using our forums to capitalize by trying to sell as much as they can.

It's just not a good idea imho. As Anno said, check out the Marketplace rules and also the supplier policy for more info on how our policies are laid out. Many minds contributed much thought to weigh the pros and cons of our guidelines and I'm confident that our system works well as is.
