When placing any advert for items for sale please can all users please ensure that derogatory terms or slang names are not used which may bring the Imp Club into difficulties.

One such post has been editted today and the poster informed.

Thank You all for your help and co-operation, if anyone notices something they are not happy with please contact me by PM

The Business Advertisement Disclosure Order 1977 requires that all advertisements by people who seek to sell goods in the course of a business to make that fact clear. The Imp Club as the publisher of the advertisement can also commit an offence if an advertiser fails to comply with the Order. A person does not have to earn a living from selling the advertised goods. It is for the Courts to decide on each case but normally a person who advertises more than three or four times in a short period of time will be construed as a Trader. The Imp Club will ask advertisers to confirm that they are not in a trade or business before an advertisement is published. This decision will not affect advertisers who by the nature of the advertisement make it clear that they are traders.
