Only Here at Shutter Asia to Buy and Sell?

As an initiative for the benefit of our members we have noticed many people here at the forum only to use the Buy/Sell sections of Shutter Asia.

For these people please note we are a photography forum, not a buy/sell forum.

The buy/sell section is a bonus for our members, those who are here purely to buy/sell without adding to the community will no longer be tolerated.

If you wish to utilise the buy/sell section of the forum please contribute to the other sections by posting pictures, helping to constructively comment on pictures posted by others, answer questions even asking questions.

You can also share news/reviews and it'd be good if you wish to join outings and events too.

Remember Shutter Asia is about keeping the photography community alive and pushing the bounds of creativity.

Merely buying and selling goods does nothing for the benefit of the community.

Many thanks for your consideration and understanding.

one of the reason is that this forum have too many strict rules...

double post kena warning...
photo too big kena warning...

photographers don't really care the remeh temeh rules...
people will rather visit other forum...

just my 2 cents...

the original idea of this forum is to share knowledge and to gain knowledge.... i quite agree that buy/sell is being utilised by corporation to sell to potential client...

if buy/sell amongst member, is perfectly ok.... cos the ultimate intention is not to make profit but to get some new gear for him/herself.

if a company that just wishes to sell something to members, then, its more like better u go to lelong.com.my or ebay.com.my or post it at your own website....

i do notice that, some particular company, posting here that so and so is available for sale... and when some ppl ask certain question regarding it, none being replied... i believe they replied the PM of interest though... so clever.... msg or replies not beneficial to them, will not be entertain???

if that continues, why not we change shutterasia.com to shutterlelongcumebay.com ?

How about those photo shops like J-One, YL Camera, Microsonic, Yamiya?

Do they share any photo with us? Do they make any comments on photos or share any review?

Do they even reply your message or PM?

Just my 2 cents

actually that is not served as "warning" but I would call it a reminder... imagine if you upload a few photos which is too large in terms of file size and resolution, how long will it takes to view that page? Frankly, this is for the sake of every members, to share and to let us view your photos which impress us, but what if it loads to slow? For me, I will rather ignore and skip it...

Well double post, is to keep the thread properly and tidy. Won't you feel it is so messy when people reply/quote a post which is commenting your photo like "Thanks" for lotsa times? 10 people commented your photos, so you will get 10 times same replies... *sweat* haha... Every reminder(or so called "warning") has it own reason why it is stated here. Cheers!

For that, it is different story... They are ShutterAsia appointed retailer which provide best offers to our members. Of course, they earn benefits, but you must know that, some of the price is definitely cheaper than others. You may also apply as a ShutterAsia retailer if you have good deals for ShutterAsia members.

If you have noticed, those shops like YL, J-One, Creative Photography Solution, Microsonic and Yamiya are Shutter Asia's Featured Merchants. They are here to provide trusty services to Shutter Asia members since there are many conman out there. These merchants were carefully selected.

Shutter Asia is not a buy/sell forum. It is a photography forum. The new policy does not prohibit members from selling in this forum. Members need to balance their selling activities by participating in Shutter Asia photo activities. Since you already have the equipments (from your selling threads), I think it is not hard to take some photos to share.

We have to take such action because so many people abused this forum by using it as a platform to sell their items (and gain profits) without doing any contributions to the growth of this community. This is not a healthy scenario.

Been wondering for some time but do they pay to be listed?
