General Information

Register with us and as an active posting member, you will get to enjoy active member privileges:
- Access to the Market Place
- Posting your personal pre-owned items for sale in the Market Place
- Group buys and other watch related deals

All active posting members will be automatically classified as the active members group after 10 approved posts. Posts with 1 or 2 words with no value will be discarded.

We really value contributors, so we expect the first 10 posts to be genuine and constructive to the thread and not for the sake of clocking post count.

All new members below a post count of 10 will have the rank "Freshies" under their forum nicks with the below restrictions:
- first 10 posts will be subjected to moderator's approval (helps with spam control and other unnecessary topics)
- will not have access to private messaging
- other active member privileges stated above.

General Rules

As with all forums, here are the house rules:
- The most basic rule, do treat all member with respect, treat others the way you want others to treat you. (" onclick=";return false;)
- Primary language of communication is English, other languages are fine if translation are provided.
- Posts should not contain religious texts, political statements, sexist remarks or any other offensive text.
- Stay in topic, any off-topic goes to Chit Chat:" onclick=";return false;
- Be mindful over posting each others contact details publicly as it's personal.
- Any form of sales activity are not allowed outside Market Place, direct or indirect.
