  1. Miscellany
    1. Topics:
      1. The title of your topic should state clearly what your topic is about. Please avoid topics like, OMFG d00d, l@@k!
      2. The subtitle of your topic should be used to enhance the title of your topic. If the subtopic does not enhance the title of your topic, consider leaving it blank.
      3. Before posting a new topic, check to see if that topic already exists. If it alreadys exists, please add to the existing topic's discussions.
      4. If posting a link to a Youtube video or other video, please include a description or brief summary of the video.  We should not have to click and watch a video before we know what the video is.  Also, the title of your thread should contain video, so users know this thread is about watching a video.
      5. If posting a finds video, it is good forum etiquette to post a summary of your finds.  Please understand NA isn't your source to get new viewers and up your revenue stream.
      6. Any topic may be deleted for any reason seen fit by an admin or moderator. A moderator may optionally send you a private message letting you know that your topic was removed and why; however, this is completely at the discretion of each moderator and may not happen. If this does not happen, use this area to determine why your topic was removed.

        Part of maintaining an active forum is removing topics that are seen as inappropriate, off-topic, too vague, or basically any reason a moderator/admin sees fit as grounds for removing the topic. If your topic was removed, and you're unsure why, please follow these suggestions (in this order):
        Keep in mind that this isn't a democracy, you're not entitled to anything, and we're not your bitches. Our moderators work very hard for nothing in return other than helping to keep this community as free of mayhem and clutter as humanly possible. Please be mindful of that when contacting them.
        • Don't take it personally.
        • We're not a democracy.
        • Read the FAQ.
        • Contact a moderator or admin and ask nicely. Note: This is not an invitation to argue with the moderator.
    2. Signatures:


      NintendoAge.com
       
      1. Signatures may be removed for any reason a moderator or administrator feels is justified.
      2. Signatures should not contain anything that is not considered "safe for work" (see: NSFW). This includes images and text.
      3. Signatures may contain links, so long as the links do not contain referrals. NintendoAge isn't your free ride.
      4. Signatures may contain linked images, so long as the links around the images do not contain referrals.
      5. Signatures may contain images, so long as the images are not animated (slow animation might be tolerated on a case-by-case basis) and as long as they are no higher than 120 pixels and no wider than 500 pixels. If your signature contains an image at or near the maximum size, please do not add multiple lines of text above or below it.
      6. Signatures may only contain one image, period. If you would like to have multiple images please consider combining your smaller images into a single larger image for use in your signature. There are many free/easy to use programs that will allow you to do this.
      7. Signatures may contain HTML, so long as the HTML does not use animation or combination of annoying contrasting colors that deter from the page (at the mods/admins discretion).
      8. Signatures may promote your business if your business is directly related to video gaming. This includes unobstrusive HTML, text and/or image banners (max 468x60). If you're unsure, please ask an administrator ahead of time as we will immediately remove anything we feel isn't inline with our community.
      9. Do not use signatures to call out other members or to post questionable personal content/conversations about/with other members. Friendly banter is fine, but if the member in question or other members complain, you'll be required to remove said content.
      10. Text in signatures is limited to 8 lines (counting blank lines) and 255 characters max. Both text and an image are acceptable, but you must stay within 120 pixels high / 8 text lines worth of space.
      11. DO NOT MAKE YOUR SIGNATURE LIKE THIS: ZOMFG PONIEZ!!!!
        1. Avatars:
          1. Avatars may be removed for any reason a moderator or administrator feels is justified.
          2. Avatars should be no larger than 120 pixels wide and 120 pixels tall (larger images are auto-resized, which removes animation, so use caution).
          3. Avatars may contain animation so long as it isn't overly distracting (at the mods/admins discretion).
          4. Tip: be careful not to change your avatar too frequently. Your avatar is your persona and people will start to identify you by it.
          5. Avatars may not be used to promote your business. Please use a signature to do this, and please follow the guidelines for doing so.
          6. The use of site-appointed avatars such as the "Hall of Shame" or "Banned" avatars is not allowed unless they have been specifically applied by an admin or mod. The use of such avatars will result in a warning.
      12. Auction Site Spotlight
        1. Rules:
          1. We reserve the right to remove any Spotlight auctions that we deem to be unworthy of their own thread. Please only post R9+ or unique items (these rarely go unseen anyway), or ONE link to your own page of items for sale.
          2. If the OP is not the winner of an auction (ie, YOU didn't win it), do not post the link (or make a post about it) for at least 14 days after the auction end date. This helps to prevent the winner from getting back-doored and allows enough time for the item to be shipped.
          3. If you're the winner of an auction, and would like to brag early (at your own risk!), do it in the Finders Keepers topic area. We recommend that you wait until you receive the items to avoid getting back-doored.
          4. Do not bump your auctions more than once in a 24-hour period of time.
          5. Do not make more than 1 post every 3 days for your NEW auctions (never post twice about the same auctions).
          6. If you post a link to your auctions (i.e., on eBay.com, etc...), the majority of your auctions/listings must be video-game-related. Alternatively, the link can be to a search results page that filters out unrelated items, resulting in a majority of video-game-related auctions/listings.
        2. Recommendations:
          1. BIN listings are always welcome because they often help fellow collectors score good deals. In fact, a stickied thread was created specifically for this purpose:
          2. Members should update their posts with new auctions instead of creating a new thread. Bumping is allowed once every 24 hours and is perfectly acceptable when adding new items. Members must not bump their own threads more than once every 24 hours. One method would be to post "New items added today" which serves to bump the thread and to alert users that the OP added new items.
          3. Try not to link to auctions that are ending in 12 or less hours unless they are your own. This can cause price spikes in the auctions final hours on items that many NA members are most likely already looking at.
      13. Seller's Forum [FS/FO/FT]
        1. Rules:
          1. Members must post the terms of their FS/FO/FT threads as clearly as possible and edit the original thread as needed when asked to provide clarification to these terms. The clearer the terms, the smoother the deals will go for everyone. This is one of the busiest areas of NintendoAge and is therefore patrolled the most, so new members will benefit from inspecting existing threads by established members to see what to do before posting. To help with this, use the following as a checklist in your terms for all FS/FO/FT threads:
            1. Indicate whether or not prices (in FS threads) include shipping.
            2. Indicate the method(s) of payment you accept (in FS threads).
            3. Indicate whether or not international shipping is offered.
            4. Indicate condition for items being offered and avoid using terms like "shelf wear" and "good" -- describe the item condition, as in "the manual has a small crease on the top of the cover" or "there's some fading on the box front where a sticker was". Fully disclose the condition to avoid problems.
            5. Provide pictures of the items being offered (if this is not possible, reconsider posting at all).
          2. When two members enter into a transaction, the terms of that agreement are solely up to those two users. NintendoAge offers no means of compensation or support for deals that go badly. It is urgent that both parties involved perform due diligence when entering transactions with unknown users. Following these rules will help everyone involved. Also be sure to read the Creating a Transaction tutorial.
          3. All FS/FO/FT threads must be related in some way to video games (VG). Anything legal that is related to video gaming, on any platform, in any way, shape or form may be listed without asking first. The sale of illegally modded current-gen consoles or exact reproductions of games is not allowed.  Please note that we have a Community Garage Sale periodically that allows you to list non-VG items.
          4. The sale or trade of Gift Cards with a monetary amount (such as Target, Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop etc.) is prohibited. Subscription Cards for current systems may be sold and traded because they are redeemed for a specific service. If you are unsure if your card may be sold or traded here, please PM a Mod before listing it. When posting a FS/FT thread, clearly specify the type of card you are offering and provide pictures if possible. Below are the Subscription Cards that are allowed at this time. 
          5. The sale or purchase of any virtual items (downloadable games, codes, etc) is to be done at your own risk. If something goes wrong with a transaction involving a virtual item please notify a moderator asap. Due to the inability to track these sales there will not be much that can be done to recover any lost $$$.
          6. Members must recycle a single thread for FS/FO/FT lists instead of creating a new thread. One FS/FO/FT thread per member per week is the limit. This will be loosely enforced at a moderator's discretion.
          7. Members must list all items in the same thread, unless it is a situation that warrants multiple threads. An example is a single thread that lists N64 games along with NES games for sale -- use one thread. The exception to this rule is when the number of items being listed is excessive (i.e., hundreds or thousands of items) and it makes more sense to break the items up into multiple posts. If unsure, ask a moderator for assistance.
          8. DO NOT bump your thread more than once in a 24-hour period of time. If someone else bumps your thread by replying in it, that's considered a bump in your favor, and the 24 hour clock resets. It's acceptible for other members to bump your thread by replying in it; however, if this is abused (i.e., by Sock Puppeteering), your thread will be locked or removed.
          9. "For Sale" (FS) threads must include prices. If the OP cannot decide on pricing, then a "Make Offer" thread must be used instead. One technique is to set prices higher than the estimated value, alongside an "OBO" statement, allowing users to make offers "near" the price. Another option is to visit the Price Check area and ask for help if you don't know the price or can't find similar items on eBay to use as a reference point. Simply put, if prices aren't posted, then the thread isn't really a "For Sale" thread, and it becomes more of a "If I get an offer high enough I might sell it" thread, which tends to mislead a lot of people, annoy a lot of other people, and wastes everyone's time.
          10. Members must use "For Offer" or "Make Offer" in the thread titles for threads that have items they wish to receive offers on.
          11. Regarding trades with another user: Unless other arrangements have been agreed upon by both parties, the user with less feedback sends first.  Upon receipt, the opposite party must then ship their items. The exception is when both parties have greater than 10 feedback. In that case, both users should ship simultaneously.
            Hint: if a user is strongly opposed to sending first, it's a telltale sign of a potential scam. Please use judgement when buying, selling or trading or ask another member that is trustworthy for assistance.
          12. Threatening to moves items to eBay if they do not sell for the price you're wanting on NintendoAge is not only annoying and makes you look like a douche, but also grounds for having a moderator or admin lock your thread.
          13. Reneging on a deal after it was paid for is grounds for being part of our Hall of Shame.
          14. B/S/T is not to be used for listing links to your auction items, please post those in the auction site spotlight section. In some circumstances links may be allowed; I.E. If your offering a specific item up to NA members at a discount or if your running a sale on all of your items to NA members or something similar.
          15. Similarly, you may NOT list an EBAY open auction item in the B/S/T section. We do not want double sale issues so please keep them in the auction site spotlight area. You MAY list EBAY fixed price items in the B/S/T area.
          16. PAYPAL PAYMENTS:   When selling items on NintendoAge, if you choose to accept PayPal as a form of payment, we ask that you fall in line with their Term of Service (TOS), which means:

            1. In your B/S/T thread, you cannot ask for additional money or percentage of payment to cover PayPal fees (or any other type of fee or charge). This breaks PayPal's TOS and makes YOU look like a cheap-ass. Just include these fees in your asking price ahead of time.

            2. In your B/S/T thread, you cannot require "Gift" payments. This breaks PayPal's TOS and puts users on NintendoAge at risk because it eliminates buyer protection. This, in turn, creates a lot of work for moderators and admins, and since NintendoAge is FREE, you're risking ruining the system you're already getting for free. Don't think of their fees as paying 3%, think of it as saving 7-20% not having to pay listing fees.

            If you and the buyer/seller come to different terms, privately, that's fine, but that's at your own risk. You cannot walk away from an agreed-upon deal because the buyer would not meet your private requirements. All requirements must be made upfront in your thread. The rules laid down in the thread, if no other terms are agreed upon privately, must be upheld. If you decide to send payment as Gift after we've recommended against it, and the deal goes South, the moderators and admins on NintendoAge will point-blank ignore your complaint.

            If you break these rules, your thread may be locked or removed, at the discretion of the mods or admins. We encourage people to leave feedback appropriately if terms are changed after the transaction is started, that do not meet the original thread's requirements (or break the NintendoAge rules). Admins will modify retaliatory feedback at their discretion. If these rules are abused repeatedly, posting or website privileges may be removed.

            Our goal is to reduce member-to-member fraud, and gifting payments is the #1 way to lose money in a peer-to-peer network like NintendoAge. That said, we want to protect our members as much as possible, and we thank you for respecting this rule. Also keep in mind this site is free, and let's try and keep it that way by reducing the amount of transactions mods and admins have to get involved in.
        2. Recommendations:
          1. Prefix your post with one (or a combination) of the following to tell users what to expect:
            1. FS = For Sale
            2. FT = For Trade
            3. WTB = Want to Buy
            4. WTT = Want to Trade
            5. WTTF = Want to Trade For
            6. FA = For Auction
            Following is an example:
            FS: Myriad 6-in-1, $60 shipped + other great deals (NES, N64 + GB)
          2. Consider accepting forms of payment other than PayPal as some members do not use this service.
          3. Feedback should be left upon receipt of payment or shipment. Please be honest.
          4. When your transaction is complete, be sure to leave feedback. See the Feedback Tutorial for a how-to on leaving feedback.
          5. Use NA to your advantage to further your collecting goals. It's truly amazing how many items can be had here instead of resorting to online auction sites.
          6. Things to do when entering into transactions:
            1. Be prompt when responding to PM's
            2. Be as clear and concise as possible in all back-and-forth correspondence.
            3. Be patient and courteous.
            4. Always give a member the benefit of the doubt initially.
            5. Try to work things out amicably before getting NA moderators/admin involved.
      14. Buyer's Forum [WTB/WTT]
        1. Rules:
          1. Members must post the terms of their WTB/WTT threads as clearly as possible and edit the original thread as needed when asked to provide clarification to these terms. The clearer the terms, the smoother the deals will go for everyone. This is one of the busiest areas of NintendoAge and is therefore patrolled the most, so new members will benefit from inspecting existing threads by established members to see what to do before posting.

It is urgent that both parties involved perform due diligence when entering transactions with unknown users. Following these rules will help everyone involved. Also be sure to read the Creating a Transaction tutorial.
          3. All WTB/WTT threads must be related in some way to video games (VG). Anything that is related to video gaming, on any platform, in any way, shape or form may be listed. Please note that we have a Community Garage Sale twice a year that allows you to list non-VG items.
          4. Members must recycle a single thread for WTB/WTT lists instead of creating a new thread. One WTB/WTT thread per member per week is the limit. This will be loosely enforced at a moderator's discretion.
          5. Members must list all items in the same thread, unless it is a situation that warrants multiple threads.

          12. PreOrders where money changes hands before a product is finished/available is not allowed on NintendoAge. Please have items in your possession before posting them for sale or taking money on them. Should you need to do a preorder to raise funds, please do it elsewhere.  Interest checks or having numbers reserved is still allowed. Preorder terms may be set up where the interested party is bound to purchase once the item is available, but upfront payment is not allowed.
        2. Recommendations:
          1. Prefix your post with one (or a combination) of the following to tell users what to expect:Following is an example:
            FS: Myriad 6-in-1, $60 shipped + other great deals (NES, N64 + GB)
            1. FS = For Sale

            4. WTT = Want to Trade
            5. WTTF = Want to Trade For
            6. FA = For Auction
          2. Consider accepting forms of payment other than PayPal as some members do not use this service.
          3. Feedback should be left upon receipt of payment or shipment. Please be honest.
          4. When your transaction is complete, be sure to leave feedback. See the Feedback Tutorial for a how-to on leaving feedback.
          5. Use NA to your advantage to further your collecting goals. It's truly amazing how many items can be had here instead of resorting to online auction sites.
          6. Things to live when entering into transactions:
            1. Be prompt when responding to PM's
            2. Be as clear and concise as possible in all back-and-forth correspondence.
            3. Be patient and courteous.
            4. Always give a member the benefit of the doubt initially.
            5. Try to work things out amicably before getting NA moderators/admin involved.
      15. Price Check
        1. Rules:
          1. This category is not a substitute for simple due diligence. Before you post to this topic, check common sources for prices (ie, completed eBay sales). If you cannot find other sources or have a question about the prices you found, please post.
          2. This category is not meant to be used as a place to field offers or run an auction. If you are interested in selling your item please post it in the buy/sell/trade or auction forum. If you are interested in buying someones item please send them a polite PM. Do not clutter up a price check thread with unnecessary offers, bids or other unneeded information. These types of posts will be deleted.
        2. Recommendations:
          1. Search the NintendoAge Forum to see if someone else has already asked about the item.
          2. Taken from Tips for finding a price without making a new thread by Dangevin

            eBay: the world's price guide

            There are many bad ways to harvest price data from eBay, and two good ways. Some people simply type in the name of their game in the search box on the front page and look at the various prices that pop up. "What's that, my Legend of Zelda is only worth $0.99?" Of course not, it may just be a new auction without any bids.

            So what are the two good ways? To look at what an item is immediately purchasable for, and what an item has historically sold for. Here are three links from which you can start an easy search. I use variations of these links on a day-to-day basis. Note that you must be logged in for the last one. Take a moment to click on them before I explore the details. The will be for loose Kid Icarus carts for simplicity.
            The first two links will bring you to a list of BIN's for both eBay stores, and eBay auctions. They are sorted by price+shipping, lowest first. Take both into account, add them together and you have the lowest price you could buy this item for right now, shipped to your doorstep. Useful if you're either listing for sale, trying to find relative trade values, or selling to a board member. A good global price.

            The last link is historical data of what this item has sold for in the last two weeks. Also a useful gauge of value, this is real data on what people have paid for an item. This would seem more accurate than the first group of links, but keep in mind that many things can affect a cart's value. Bonuses like a manual or case, a seller with exceptionally high feedback, or a bid war can affect the selling price and so these prices should be taken into consideration, but not always used as a rule. You'll note these are sorted by highest-first. So this link shows the most an item has sold for in the past couple weeks.

            If you're looking for something specific, like the price for a manual or box or CIB or such, try adding these to your search. Cut and paste them right into your search box, after you've clicked the links above:
            Adding these to your links above, you can see how much a CIB Kid Icarus sold for last week, and is currently available at BIN for, and use that to find the "fair market value" of a similar item.

            For some items, like Super Mario Bros 3, you may get lots of "false hits" on items that aren't the game you're looking for. Plush toys, shirts, stickers, and even other games (in this case, SMB/Duck Hunt/WCTM 3-in-1). You can filter your results by resubmitting the search, with negative keywords:
            One final note: be sure to click into an auction before you quote it as a price. Look for indicators that may affect value, like use of a stock photo, condition of the item in listings that do use a real photo, and presence of items bundled with it - i.e. - "lots" of items.

            Using these links, and perhaps modifying them to fit your own needs, you should have no problem finding a good price WITHOUT the need to ask all 600 users on the board in the form of a global post in the price check thread.
      16. NA Auctions - NA does not have the ability to assess penalty fees, thus NA auction rules are strictly enforced. THIS IS NOT EBAY
        1. Rules as an Auctioneer:
          1. We reserve the right to remove any auction that we deem to be unworthy of its own thread or that we feel is unfit or not in the spirit of our community.
          2. All goods auctioned on the NA Auctions must be related in some way to video games (VG). Anything that is related to video gaming, on any platform, in any way, shape or form may be listed. Only goods that have existed prior to the auction may be auctioned. To help prevent fraud and make auction transactions go more smoothly, services (e.g. goods that are custom-made after the auction has ended) may not be auctioned.
          3. Please form your auction thread so that the title accurately describes what's being sold (think of how you'd compose an eBay title). Structure your subtitle like the following:

            Ends: Monday January 1st 2012, 12:00pm (NA time) -- High bid: $1.00 Created: 10/24/2009 07:12 AM

            Use NA time and avoid the 01/10/2001 format.
          4. Please update your subtitle at least once a day, when you get your "free bump" to send the auction to the top of the forum. When your auction has ended, modify the end time to a big ***ENDED*** and a moderator will lock your auction up.
          5. Attempting to negotiate or accepting "side deals" on active NA auctions is not allowed.  If as a seller you have a price in mind for your item, please consider posting in the seller section instead. Once an auction is started, it is expected to run it's course. If you end an auction early that has received bids, you will be added to the Hall of Shame.
          6. All transactions must abide by this FAQ. Aside from that, the only rules are those set by the seller, and agreed to by the buyer (by bidding). If something is unclear, ask the seller, prior to bidding. If you don't like a rule, take your money elsewhere. If there's a dispute, you are expected to work it out on your own, in PM, directly with the other party. Moderation will not become involved unless there is an issue of some of fraud or other serious wrongdoing.
          7. The auctioneer gets to set the terms of his auction as long as those terms do not interfere with our rules. If you do not like the terms the auctioneer presents, please do not bid on that auction.
          8. Auctions may include a reserve price or buy it now price, as long they are made public. After the first bid, the reserve price or BIN may not be changed. We do not allow Silent Reserves. Once the BIN price has been reached by bidding, the OP may remove BIN from the auction. This prevents another user from using the BIN option to "purchase" item without bidding above the original BIN price.
          9. Once an auction has an active bid, the auctioneer cannot change the end date or time of the auction.
          10. Auctions are bound to the winning bid. If the ending price is unsatisfactory to the auctioneer, and no reserve was posted, the auctioneer is bound to the terms of the auction.
          11. "Right of First Refusal" (ROFR) is not allowed on NA Auctions because this would require third-party involvement.
          12. Auctions listings do not have to be recycled. Members must keep auctions to a maximum of 3 that overlap. This will be loosely enforced at a moderator's discretion.
        2. Rules as a Buyer:
          1. We reserve the right to cancel any bid for any reason without notice if we feel the bid is in any way insincere and/or fraudulent.
          2. All bids are a binding agreement that you, as the buyer, will honor.
          3. You may not edit your bid unless you have been given permission by the auctioneer. If a bid is edited or cancelled without permission you will be added to the Hall of Shame.
        3. Raffles: Raffles of any kind are NOT allowed on NintendoAge. Although many members may want to hold a raffle style auction from time to time and even be willing to donate part of the proceeds to the site, there will always be the chance that one or members may feel like the results were not fair and unbiased. If you would like to hold an auction that states a portion of the winning bid will be donated to NintendoAge, you are free to do so. Usually when this type of auction is held, bidders will pay a little bit more than they normally would just to help out with the day to day costs of running a website that they enjoy being a part of. Many states forbid online raffles and NintendoAge does not want to be involved in any legal troubles that may come up due to hosting them. Feel free to host a "Site Donation" auction, the Admins, MOD Squad and fellow members will greatly appreciate your generousity.
