By visiting this website and viewing the pages within, you accept and agree to be bound by and comply with the Rules Of Conduct and Terms Of Use of this website.


Official TDF Rules & TOS


Please click on either selection to view: Rules Of Conduct | Terms Of Use

All posts in the Sales on TDF section have to be approved by a moderator before they show up. Only replies that show interest in buying the item are approved. More details on what this means for you can be read by clicking here:
Newly Registered Members are restricted from posting a new For Sale ad, but they may reply to existing ads.

For Sale posts must meet the following rules:
1. All new ads must follow this template and include all sections of that template.
2. All pictures must be recent and clearly show the actual item for sale and all must include a note with your username and the day's date, but cannot cover anything of the doll (verified manufacturers and vendors are excluded from the required note).
3. Post when the item is sold.
4. Manufacturers/resellers can only use the Sales forum to sell single items, as in, blemished, second-hand, or otherwise. Sales specials need to be posted in the manufacturer/reseller section, or if there is no specific section, in Dolls in General.
5. All pictures must show the item for sale in a presentable clean looking fashion.

Notice to potential Buyers: Be mindful of the dates on Sales Posts. It is your responsibility to get recent pictures and info on older posts.

For Sale posts must clearly state in the title: For Sale - and have to be posted in the SALES On TDF forum
Wanted posts must clearly state in the title: Wanted - and have to be posted in the Wanted Items forum

Note: Posts by people looking for appraisals or recommended selling prices should be placed in the appropriate manufacturer forum or the Dolls in general if no manufacturer forum exists for that Doll. This is where you are most likely to get accurate advice on the subject

- All posts in the Sales on TDF section have to be approved by a moderator before they show up.
- All ads should comply to the Rules of Conduct, this implies that dolls appearing under 18 yo can't be offered for sale (Rule 1 of the RoC).
- Moderators will remove all ads that don't comply to these rules.
- Moderators will remove all posts not relevant to the Sale, including encouragements and criticism. Only replies that show interest in buying the item are approved. If something about a Sale is wrong, just report the ad by clicking the exclamation mark button.
- Newly Registered Members are restricted from posting a new For Sale ad, but they may reply to existing ads.
- Ads have a maximum lifespan of 12 months, after which they will be removed regardless.
- Ads will be removed if the seller doesn't log in for more than a month, doesn't answer questions within a month, or doesn't make a post on the sale thread in general at least once every three months.
- Wanted ads will be removed after six months of inactivity. (added on June 8, 2015)

For Sale posts must meet the following rules:
1. All new ads must follow this template and include all sections of that template (if applicable).
2. All pictures must be recent and clearly show the actual item for sale and all must include a note with your username and the day's date, but cannot cover anything of the doll (verified manufacturers and vendors are excluded from the required note).
3. Post when the item is sold.
4. Manufacturers/resellers can only use the Sales forum to sell single items, as in, blemished, second-hand, or otherwise. Sales specials need to be posted in the manufacturer/reseller section, or if there is no specific section, in Dolls in General.
5. All pictures must show the item for sale in a presentable clean looking fashion. (added on November 28, 2015)

If you need help starting a sale, please clearly mention this in your sale post, or send a PM to one of our staff members.

Notice to potential Buyers: Be mindful of the dates on Sales Posts. It is your responsibility to get recent pictures and info on older posts.

Sales related questions about the actual for sale item are okay.

Images from The Doll Album can be used to sell your doll by providing the URL in your post.

Instructions on using the Doll Album, or how to attach pictures to posts are in Sticky posts in the Tutorials On Using TDF Forum.

For Sale posts are not to be cross-posted in another forum.

Addressing auctions:

- All auctions must have public open bids, posted in the sales topic and must state whether shipping is included in the bid or not.
- An auction must have a set end date/time, which cannot be extended, with the only exception being there are no bids.
- An auction must have a fair minimum starting bid made by the seller for as low as they'll accept. If any amount will suffice, your starting price should be $1, or the equivalent of shipping.
- The seller must state up front whether the shipping price is included in the bidding or not, if not, they must also state how much shipping will be or make a generous estimate.
- If the person who won does not honor the deal, you must sell to the last bidder at their visibly posted price.

This is all strictly in the interest of fairness.

ALL AUCTIONS MAY ONLY END A FULL 24 HOURS AFTER THE LAST BID. THE END PRICE IS THE SALE PRICE.

As with regular sales threads, auctions must comply to the Rules mentioned above.

Disclaimer: TDF will not be held liable in any way, shape, or form for any transactions gone bad.

- These rules have gone in effect on March 27, 2015

Addendum for Newly Registered Members:

If you want to start a sale on the Doll Forum, you will need to have made 5 approved posts on other parts of the forum.
Posts will need to be meaningful for them to be approved. One-word posts will not be approved.

There are many threads on the forum of varying subjects, and there are many threads with pictures worthy of a compliment.

Posting and/or replying in the Wanted items section is also restricted and will become available after 5 approved posts. (added on November 28, 2016)
