Collectible – n. one of a group of things that people collect as a hobby; old bottles, toys, stamps, coins, cards, rocks, figurines, postcards, bottle caps, etc etc.
This community was created for people who collect things, and for those things they collect. This community was made with the intent to offer a forum where people could come and post information about their collections, share pictures of their collections, and share their stories with others who are interested in collecting things. It was intended to be a place to form a network, for collectors and collections alike.
Do Not Join To Sell – If the only reason you are here is to try and sell things, then take yourself somewhere else. There are plenty of communities out there already dedicated to this purpose. This is NOT one of them.
No eBay Auctions – Our reason is clear in the amount of abuse this community has already seen in eBay auctions. You are still allowed to trade or sell your collectibles, but you are not allowed to post direct links to eBay (or other) auctions here. If you wish to share information about items for sale/trade, you can make a post about the object(s) and refer people to your own journals. Violations will be deleted without question.
Posting Images & Longer Posts - Please keep in mind some users have slower internet connection speeds /older computers. Use the lj-cut tag when making large posts, when you have really large/multiple images, etc.
Play Nice - Negativity in any form is not acceptable here. There will be NO tolerance here for flaming, fighting, spamming, bias, prejudice, or blatant negative remarks.
