Information about rec.photo.marketplace.medium-format [27may2001]
This message refers to the newsgroup
rec.photo.marketplace.medium-format, but it also contains information
relevant to rec.photo.equipment.medium-format.
Posts offering to buy or sell medium format equipment should be posted
to rec.photo.marketplace.medium-format (or rec.photo.marketplace). In
particular, posters are requested not to post any FS or WTB posts to
rec.photo.equipment.medium-format or any of the other rec.photo.*
Also please note that rec.photo.marketplace.medium-format is not a
discussion group. Discussions should take place in the relevant

group is most likely to be rec.photo.equipment.medium-format.

rec.photo.marketplace.medium-format was created on the 16th March
1999. It should be available on all major newsservers. If you can't
find it, please contact your internet service provider's news
administrator or helpdesk. Some more information about the creation of
the groups can be found at
http://www.nareid.demon.co.uk/rpm/index.html. The site also contains
some advice on how to get the groups.
The charter for this group is divided into two parts, one general part
for all the new rec.photo.marketplace.* groups, and one part referring
to this group in particular. The charter is quoted below.
CHARTER: all groups
Rec.photo.marketplace.* will contain all "for sale" and "wanted"
postings. These posting will be restricted to the private sale of
personally owned and used equipment. These newsgroups specifically do
*not* permit commercial advertising, postings by dealers selling or
soliciting equipment, postings from internet auction sites, or
postings by amateurs regularly dealing in used equipment principally
or incidentally for purposes of financial gain. They are intended as
forums in which photographers can sell, trade or request equipment in
connection with their individual photographic interests.
Postings which receive no replies should *NOT* be reposted for at
least one week after the initial posting and should not be repeatedly
reposted without material change. Replies (other than factual
corrections) should be sent *only* by email and *never* posted in
rec.photo.marketplace.*. Advertisers should include a telephone number
if possible in case there are problems with email connections (and
email problems are not unusal!).
Posters should indicate their geographical location.
For the benefit of all parties, posters are strongly encouraged to
make subject lines as descriptive as possible (e.g. "WTB Nikkor 10mm
OP-Fisheye lens", "300mm for Pentax 6x7 FS", etc). Use of brand names
is encouraged, as well as abbreviations such as "WTB" (Want To Buy)
and "FS" (For Sale).
Postings for auctions which are hosted on web-servers such as eBay,
*must* include the keyword [Auction] at the start of the Subject line
(e.g. "[Auction] Szabad half-plate camera for sale").
Postings must _not_ be crossposted to any of the rec.photo.*
discussion groups. Crossposting within the rec.photo.marketplace.*
groups is normally not permitted, with the exception of informational

hierarchy, the "all groups" section of this charter may be changed
to accomodate any changed circumstances caused by the addition of
the new group(s). Such a change of the general

newsgroup proposal, and must be explicity mentioned in the proposal
For buying and selling medium format equipment. Medium format is

All postings made to this group should conform to the general
charter for the rec.photo.marketplace.* groups (see above under
the heading "CHARTER: all groups") and existing Usenet guidelines
(see news.announce.newusers for guideline documents).
