Posts and corners

Please stick to the policies listed below. Actions that violate these rules or our Terms of Use may lead to an account being suspended or terminated. We'd prefer not to do that, so please don't test us. It hurts us more than it hurts you.

Keep in mind that these policies may change at anytime. If you have any questions regarding these policies, please feel free to contact us.

Corners

  • We reserve the right at all times (but will not have an obligation) to reclaim “corner names”.

Posting

  • Do not use copyrighted materials such as pictures, images or written text, unless you have written consent to do so. This is a violation of our Terms of Use.

  • Do not use profane and/or racist language or pictures in your posts or corner.

  • A post cannot contain a link to another website for online purchases. Krrb is strictly for face-to-face transactions. If you have an online store, you may link to it from your profile.

  • A post cannot be created for the sole purpose of sharing pictures or other information, unless it is a community announcement that is relevant to many, doesn't infringe on anyones privacy and legal rights, and is within the boundaries of our policies and Terms of Use.

  • Each unique item must have its own post. You can group items into a single post if they are a set to be sold together, if you are making an announcement for a garage sale, yard sale, etc. or if you are doing a "pick and choose" (eg. "3 year old baby clothes for sale"). If your post falls into any of these exceptions, you must tag it as such (e.g. set, garage sale, yard sale, pick and choose, etc.).

  • Selling commercial or mass-produced items regularly on Krrb is strongly discouraged. If you do so, you will be asked to stop.

  • Please follow our policies regarding restricted and prohibited posts

Fee avoidance

  • You cannot edit a posts information to change it to an entirely different item; this is considered fee avoidance.

  • You cannot contact another member to buy or sell an item not posted on Krrb as this may constitute fee avoidance.

Post accuracy and fairness

  • Post descriptions, tags and pictures must accurately describe the item or service.

  • You cannot create a post for an item or service that is not available.

  • Post price must be reasonable. You can price an item how you choose, however you cannot use an inaccurate price in order to mislead users or keep it from selling.

Sharing and promotion

  • Spread the word about your post and corner but don't spam. Spam includes unsolicited emails, @ messages on Twitter and promotional comments on Facebook. This makes everyone on Krrb look bad.

Tagging

  • You must use accurate and relevant tags that describe the specific item or service you are posting.

  • You may use relevant synonyms as tags (e.g. a wallet may be tagged with billfold also).

  • Do not use competing brand name tags (eg. do not tag your John Deere tractor with "Craftsman").

  • You cannot use related tags that do not describe the item or service you are posting (e.g. gloves shouldn't be tagged with "scarf", yarn shouldn't be tagged "sweater", man with a van shouldn't be tagged with "armoire").

  • You may use multiple words as a single tag only if they comprise a single descriptive phrase (e.g. "living room"). Example of unacceptable multiple words in a single tag: "red dress", "Ikea couch", "old computer", etc.

  • If your post contains mature content, then you must comply with Krrb's mature content policies which include tagging your post with "mature" and including "MATURE:" as the first word of your post title.

  • Using too many tags may get your post flagged for review.

Businesses

  • Gift certificates are governed by local laws; it is your responsibility to determine if they are in compliance. If you post a gift certificate, you are responsible for this compliance.

  • A post must offer something. It cannot be created for the sole purpose of advertising. Such information may be included in your profile.

  • You can create a post to promote a sale, promotion or coupon only if your shop is located within the place you are posting too.

  • Member must include clear information about the organization and donation details in the post or corner, including the 501(c)(3) number and status.
