Changes to our for sale sections. 21/12/16We have another great feature for our site. We're changing how the forum handles sales, this is to better protect us and yourselves when selling. You no longer are required to make a forum post to sell your car, car parts, and misc items. From the 22nd Dec 2016, we have a full classifieds system in place now which will make selling your items a breeze. For the mean time, we will keep the forum topics open for current sales but you will not be able to create new topics, only replies. This is to ensure a smooth transition over to the classifieds.
Creating adverts is a very simple process - Here are a few example screenshots:

Classifieds Layout Advert Layout
We hope you enjoy this fresh layout. Making adverts and keeping on top of them has never been so easy!
....More features to come soon! Disclaimer
Club Polo cannot be held responsible for any losses while trading. We provide the area for you to trade and its down to your own discretion whether you send someone money or not.
As we've switched on our new classifieds system, I need to make members aware of how the system (can possibly) work regarding buying from each other.
Firstly I must say that LIVE TRANSACTION between members is completely optional. We can either have this ON or OFF.
So? How does live transactions work (from now on called; CREDIT).
If TRANSACTIONS is disabled, things has to be done manually: 'You' the member needs to contact the advertiser/seller in ways he wants (he chooses when posting the advert) ie, PM or Email etc, make the deal, then the advertiser will set the advert as PENDING DEAL. After the payment/deal is done, advertiser sets the advert as COMPLETED.
If TRANSACTIONS is enabled the advertiser receives the amount paid via account credit. Basically what this mean is that the seller pays CLUBPOLO directly. Once buyer pays CLUBPOLO through PayPal, we'll credit your account to the value that was sold on your item. You then need to REQUEST the credit from your account to which our system will pay you directly into your paypal account.
*We're basically acting as a middle man 'holding money' until you request it.
We're aware that members potentially may not like this idea and henceforth the feature is currently DISABLED.
If our members of the community of ClubPolo are happy with buying directly from one another and with us temporarily holding the funds until you request it, then we will enable the feature.
I hope this is clear and you understand, we're bring ClubPolo into the 21st century and always looking for ways to improve our site and making as user friendly as possible.

Deletion of Posts and Inactive User Accounts
Club Polo policy states that it will not delete posts en masse nor will it delete inactive user accounts. By accessing this community forum, users are opting to submit material or content on to a publicly accessible, shared space where one participants contribution directly influences the input of another Was a particular post helpful to others? Is a certain topic more popular amongst certain users? Every submission is affected by what precedes and follows it. Deleting a single user account and a series of their postings is therefore most detrimental to our remaining members, who would see the value of their own contributions diminish as their comments would appear to be completely out of context and thus nonsensical. Disjointed threads would undoubtedly serve as frustrating reads for our thousands of loyal users. Moreover, the special aspect of a community forum such as this is its ability to preserve information and interactions the ability to look back on what has past. The deletion of posts and accounts would not only affect the cohesion and consistency of the Club Polo website. It would also unnecessarily rob the community of its sense of community.
Lastly, in the unlikely instance that account and manual post-by-post deletion requests are ever accepted, one is reminded that it would not prevent postings that have already been referenced or quoted by other users, from appearing elsewhere on this site.
While inactive accounts will remain on our systems, Club Polo will remove email addresses from our servers upon request.
