Classifieds

A place to advertise to buy or sell goods, services, land, or businesses (in proper Steamlander™ fashion of course)
Guidelines for Classified Listings on Steamlander

While we do not impose strict limits, we do have a "fair use" policy with regards to Classifieds listings, and these guidelines are to give members a sense of what we consider fair. The purpose of the site is not to simply advertise wares, but also to allow members to participate as a community of Steampunk, Victorian, Gaslamp Fantasy, and 19th Century genres. Free Accounts may include an externally linked non-copyright image (800x600 or smaller), and a link to in-world store (eg- SLURL), or another site of a non-commercial nature. One or two links at most. Sustaining Members may include shopping cart links, or links to listing service sites such as XStreetSL, or other commercial site, and may include up to 3 or 4 links per listing.

Free Accounts may make at least one Classifieds listing, even up to one per week. If you are a starving artist, or just starting a virtual world business, it's probably ok to post more than once a week to get started. If you find yourself listing an ad every day, or you find yourself posting more ads than anyone else, you should consider a Sustaining Membership, or even a paid banner ad to better get your message across. Someone just barely making tier on a small parcel will be given greater leeway than someone renting a sim or operating their own estate.

Active Sustaining Members may post several listings per day if so desired. We do not yet have a catalog listing or shopping cart service, so the more relaxed limits simply recognize Sustaining Members for their support of the site. If one were to post the equivalent of a message per day per category, or so many messages in a day as to push all other off the first page of a forum, that might be a bit excessive. If anyone feels they *need* more listings, they should contact webmaster@steamlander.com to discuss other advertising options. Please check with Excalibur Steamlander before posting on behalf of non-members (we are here to benefit our members, and since basic accounts are free there is no reason not to join).

Free listings placed by those who are courteous and appreciative of our efforts will naturally be more welcome to us than those who -- for whatever reason -- believe it is somehow a "right" to post on this, our private community oriented forum. We will try to gently nudge those who seem to be going overboard, especially if they are exceeding the number of listings made by Sustaining Members. If gentle nudging doesn't work, we will issue warnings, and try to let those *exceptionally* prolific Free Accounts know they should consider chipping in, or if nothing else the rest of us chance to catch up. ^_^
