OUR FORMATTING STANDARDS MAKE IT EASY FOR BUYERS TO QUICKLY ZERO IN ON WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR.
• The first three words of your ad will be typed in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. This gives you the opportunity to highlight the most important information to catch the reader's eye. Clutter, in the form of capitalized, bold-faced, underlined, or italicized words in the remaining text is not allowed.
Tip: If you want to vary typestyles or sizes, you may want purchase a boxed classified or service directory ad. View Boxed Classified Rates and Samples. View Service Directory Rates and Samples.
• Your goal is to make it as easy as possible for buyers to find your item for sale. So, we do not allow you to place an ad in one category if it also contains items that belong in a second category. For example, you may not put an ad to sell a car and a sofa under "Autos for Sale." You will need to either place separate ads under "Autos for Sale" and "Furniture," or place the combined ad under "Miscellaneous For Sale." In addition, you may only place your ad in the category or categories where it belongs. Some people think if they put a yard sale ad in the Personal Notices category that it will attract attention. It doesn't. It only angers the readers of the Personal Notices category because they have to trip over an ad that isn't of interest to them.
We reserve the right to change the category that you select to a more appropriate category for your ad.
TIPS FOR REAL ESTATE RELATED ADS:
• Help us both stay within the law. In rental ads, federal law forbids using terms that could be taken as discriminatory to a particular group. Therefore you may not say "no smokers," but you may say "no smoking." Terms such as "adults only" or "no children" are also forbidden. We suggest asking for references in order to screen potential tenants.
We reserve the right to correct any ad content that is in violation of federal law.
WHAT PART OF "FREE", IS FREE?
• Under "Lost and Found" we provide one free ad to anyone who has FOUND an item. Anyone who has LOST an item must purchase a paid ad. The "Free" category is for offering free items, but those advertisers must still purchase the ad.
