Marketplace Access Requirements
The Den of Angels marketplace is for buying, selling and trading on-topic BJDs and BJD-related items only. All onsite sales must take place in the marketplace; sales outside the marketplace are not allowed. Den of Angels has three marketplace access groups.
1. No Marketplace Access – Users who have not met the Marketplace access requirements can only view the Marketplace Rules, Buying and Shipping Questions, Company Feedback, and Member Feedback subforums.
2. Limited Marketplace Access – Users who have been members for 25 days AND made 40 posts belong to this group. They have access to all Marketplace subforums. However, they may not start new threads within the Group Orders, Splits, Original Manufacturing, and Commissionable Services subforums. This allows these members to participate in group orders and splits, but not host or organize their own; they can also commission DoA members, but cannot themselves take commissions.
3. Full Marketplace Access – Users who have been members for 180 days (6 months) AND have made 100 posts belong to this group.
Users who had an account older than two years at the time these requirements went into effect were automatically grandfathered into these groups.
Do not post only to bring up your post count. Do not paste the same comment in multiple threads or make posts without content. The posting requirement is a way for the community to get to know you. Introduce yourself, ask meaningful questions, participate in discussions and use your posts to get to know others.
Once you have reached the requirements, it may take anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours before your marketplace access is updated. If you have any questions, please ask the moderators!
The forum and its moderators do not guarantee or insure transactions against loss or damage; all buying, selling, and trading is considered to be at your own risk. For legal reasons, the moderators will not arbitrate or act as a third party in any Marketplace Transaction. If you have an unsatisfactory transaction, you are invited to post a negative feedback in the feedback forum. (For more information, read the feedback guidelines.) In serious cases, the moderators may ban a user from the Marketplace or from Den of Angels entirely based on their Marketplace behavior.
We recommend that users buy and sell with care to avoid scams and theft. You can do this by checking out the feedback forum, Problem Transactions Subforum, looking at eBay feedback, watching for status flags and checking against previously banned member information, or asking for references. Some other suggestions can be found here. Always make sure to get more than one method of contact – email, physical address, phone number, etc. – in the event of problems.
