RunRyder Classifieds Policy

RunRyder Classifieds is a free service available to all RR members. The system is setup to be self regulated with limited RR involvement. RR will not take phone calls related to classified issues. Click Attn: RR on problem posts. Click ignore to block problem PMs. RR has tools in place to help you make informed buying or selling decisions.

Only RC helicopters and related tools and accessories can be sold in RunRyder's Classified forums. Any non RC helicopter items must be listed as For Trade and placed in one of two forums:
Stating price is not mandatory but recommended.
Complaining about price is inappropriate and against policy.
Complaining about pre-sale negotiations is inappropriate and against policy.

Free RunRyder Classifieds - Deals Gone Bad

Buyer Beware! RunRyder cannot vouch for any seller's or buyer's credibility and will not accept responsibility for any transactions resulting from the use of this site.

Before making a purchase, go to any member's profile and review their Classified Activity and their Classified Feedback.

RunRyder will not mediate deals gone bad no matter what and does not want to hear about it. RR will only get involved (for cleanup) after the fact, when both parties publicly come to terms. The RR community police is your only resource when looking for help with deals gone bad (not RR).

By design, RR management does not follow or read along with the tens of thousands of monthly postings. It instead relies on community feedback via the Attn: RR (in a post) and pmRR (top of every RR page) links. If you see unfriendly posting behavior please report it with one of these links and RR will moderate it.

You can also Create New Topic under the CLASSIFIEDS - Feedback - Mediate forum to warn other RunRyder members of a possible scammer.
Research the Legitimacy of a Classified Seller or Buyer
