How to Use the Board: Tips & Rules

Board Search: Use Board Search - located in the shaded bar at the top of the board - to locate information on specific events, items or other users of the board.

 

Posting personal information: If you have concerns about posting personal information, ask other members to contact you via email. Just make sure that the email address that is associated with your member name is correct. Also check your Board Settings to make sure that you've opted to receive email from other members. (To access board settings, look in the shaded title bar at the top of the page.) If you are posting a yard sale announcement but don't want to post your street address, you could instead post "600 block of Main St. Look for the balloons". Note: posting your email address in a message may increase the amount of spam that you receive in your email.

 

Events and activities: Please include the name of the event and the date in the title of the post (for example, Kids' Carnival 5/30/2005). Provide a description of the event (Name, date, location, if it's for kids and cost - if any) in the body of the message.

 

Commercial solicitations: If you own a commercial enterprise, you may not advertise this business on this board. If you provide services from your home-based business, you may advertise in the Home-based Businesses & Services folder.

 

Looking to buy or trade an item: If you are looking for an item -- whether you want to buy it, trade for it or are hoping to get a freebie -- you should post your message to the For Sale/Barter/Trade folder. If you are looking for a specific size, color, condition, etc. please note this in your post. Note: iVillage cannot be held responsible for transactions between private parties, but you can post a review to the "Referrals" folder. If you have a positive experience, please post it, too. When you post your review, include the individual's member name in your post, so other users can find information by using Board Search (located in the shaded bar at the top of the page).

 

Looking to give away, sell or trade an item: If you wish to give away, sell or trade an item, you should post under the For Sale/Barter/Trade heading. If you have pictures available, please be sure to either include a link where they can be seen, or note in your post that if someone is interested, you can send pictures. Note: iVillage cannot be held responsible for transactions between private parties, but you can post a review to the "Feedback" folder. If you have a positive experience, please post it, too. If you have a positive experience, please post it, too. When you post your review, include the individual's member name in your post, so other users can find information by using Board Search (located in the shaded bar at the top of the page).

 

Bumping Messages: Please post/bump only once per day (that is, your membername should show up only once per day in any given folder, regardless of whether it is a new post or a bump). Give descriptions of all items in the body of the post. This makes the board much easier to navigate and keeps anyone from hogging the board.
