REVISIONS to the below rules are coming, PLEASE do not start a group buy request!

Group Buy rules & guidelines:

1.) To OFFICIALLY post/start a Group Buy you MUST first contact a member of the Staff or Sr. Staff and have it APPROVED. It would be best to contact the following for details: aimless@ar15.com -- kevin@ar15.com -- stokes@ar15.com -- striker@ar15.com

2.) Group Buys must have dedicated timelines - A signup period will need to be established, after the signup cutoff date is reached a payment period will need to be established and an order date posted. When the payment period is posted an estimated time of arrival for the group buy will also need to be posted. We realize there can be certain unavoidable delays but the organizer of the Group Buy will need to make sure such instances are kept at a minimal.

3a.) Only ONE Group Buy is to be conducted at a time per Organizer/Dealer.

3b.) FOR NOW, we will have a limit of only FIVE or SIX group buys can be conducted per month. This will allow some time for group buy proposals to be better established by both the buyers and the dealer/organizer. If the next couple of months are smooth sailing we will consider increasing this number.

4a.) No arguing about another organizer's group buy or about a proposed group buy's price. It is up to the buyer to do the homework and determine if the deal is right or not.

4b.) Organizers/Dealers - Do not comment on another's G.B. pricing.

5.) Group Buy organizers - DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Make sure you have every detail correct. Make sure your dealer, manufacturer, etc. can provide the goods at the price negotiated and deliver in a reasonable timeline. And most importantly, make sure you can organize the funds appropriately AND keep them separate from all other business.

6.) Organizers - There will be no 'nonrefundable deposits' terms in your group buy offerings.

Yeah, I saw that, but I'm only interested in doing an Oregon HTF group buy and not a board wide buy.

Send a PM to WS4LIF. He's done several group buys and would probably be able to answer any questions you have.

I can only imagine what this is for, but I'm sure it's gonna be cool.
