| | Requesting items from Club Members
Just as a point of clarification... Our club rules say that we do NOT sell plants to one another. We give them to each other at club meetings. Other items can be sold or given away.
RULES FOR APC- state that there is to be NO BEGGING for items. That also includes items from club members. You need to come to the meetings and as people or use the club's broadcast email if you would like to request items from others such as shrimps, ferts, equipment. If you are selling equipment you need to use the FOR SALE forum and put in title LOCAL PICK-UP. If you are a member you also have been given an DFWAPC members list and so you can contact people directly.
It may seem silly to make this distinction but APC members have been given infractions for begging for items on this forum. Since we use this forum for our club we need to make sure we don't do that. We have our broadcast email just for such purposes. When other APC members see DFWAPC members begging/asking for free stuff from others it is against the rules of APC and we don't want to do that as a club. Don't be surprised if you receive a pm asking you NOT to beg for stuff on APC.
