General Provisions

neo-geo.com is not responsible in any way for private transactions arranged between members of these forums. It is the responsibility of the members to ensure that they are involved in a legitimate transaction. By choosing to do business on these forums, the members are willfully consenting to the rules stated in this post. These rules are subject to enforcement by the moderation team. Enforcement will be on a case-by-case basis.

Users Requirements

The Market is open to all members who have reached both a 50 post count and a month membership. Members with a smaller post count are restricted and can't create any thread in the market section. They may only reply to existing market threads.

We realize that two newcomers dealing together is a good recipe for disaster. This is the reason why newcomers are only allowed to deal with established members for the first 5 transactions; however, established members have a right to discriminate on who they deal with.

Sellers and traders with little or no feedback must ship items first, or allow local pickup. Sellers and traders with insufficient feedback who refuse to ship first or to allow local pickup can be identified as potential scammers by forum members, and their account will be subject to review by the moderation team.

Any user who commits a scam on this website forfeits all privacy rights to their name, address and any other discoverable personal information until the situation has been acceptably rectified. Any such information can be posted on the forums, resulting in public availability on web search engines (e.g. Google).

Any user who commits a scam outside of the forums may be subject to having their account restricted for the safety and protection of our members.

Market Forums

(SNK) Neo Selling:
Items permitted for sale include any SNK released game for the Arcade (including PCBs and complete cabinets), Neo Geo AES/NGH (home cartridge), Neo Geo MVS (arcade cartridge), Neo Geo CD, Neo Geo Hyper 64, Neo Geo Pocket (B&W or Color), any SNK released hardware, third party products that works with SNK systems, and any SNK collectible such as key chains, art books, etc. Only items offered for sale should be listed here.

(SNK) Neo Wanted:
This forum is an opportunity for users to post wanted (to buy or trade) requests for items that qualify under the (SNK) Neo Selling forum. Such want ads or trade lists should NOT be associated with items listed for sale in another forum.

Everything Else:
Buy/sell/trade any items not listed in the (SNK) Neo forums; not limited to video games.

Zelda doll trading forum (ZDTF):
As a subset of Everything Else, ZDTF is for sales and trade of all arcade hardware and software. MVS hardware and software may be listed in (SNK) Neo Selling.

Off-Site Commerce:
Any off-site sales, including but not limited to eBay auctions, Amazon listings, Facebook Marketplace, etc, should be listed here regardless of what is being sold. However, sellers who posted a proper sale thread and then decide, after a reasonable period of time, to move their unsold items off-site, may post a link to said items in their original sale thread. Sellers are not required, in that particular case, to create a new thread in the Off-Site Commerce section. Anyone who abuses the "reasonable period of time" will be subject to action by the moderation team. Do not try to game the system.
