To make your Rummaging experience as fun and productive as possible, we’ve put together these Community Guidelines to help you out.
When you take a picture of something and post it for sale on Rumgr, that is your promise to the community. The picture should show exactly what you are offering for sale — no more, no less. If a car charger is included in your iPhone offer, put it in the picture! And lastly, please don’t take pictures of people. You can’t sell your little brother on Rumgr.
Rumgr is an open community that is based on quick and efficient interactions. We want you to feel comfortable communicating with each other, but please be careful about what you say in a public space, and to a relative stranger. Do not share personal information with other users, such as your full name, email address, phone number or other personal information. With features like Questions and Private Chat we’ve made it possible for buyers and sellers to communicate entirely on the Rumgr platform until you meet in person for the exchange.
You see something you think you want, you make an offer, and it’s accepted… but then you don’t want it anymore. Hey, it happens. But consider the other buyers that were shut out of the deal, and the time the seller has spent interacting with you that is now wasted. Be positive that you are willing to see a deal all the way through before making an offer on an item. Rumgr sellers are members of your local community, and you may even know them already! Maintain a good reputation by not being “that guy” who backs out of every deal.
Meet in a safe, public place — and take the time to run through a checklist to make sure everything is exactly what you want. If you’re the buyer, be sure the item appears in real life as it was pictured, and that it functions correctly. Once you pay, there’s no going back! Sellers, make sure you get paid on the spot for your item, and the amount that was agreed upon in the app. Shoot for 100% satisfaction on both ends before you walk away.
Rumgr is all about exploration, getting to peek into your neighbor’s garage and see cool stuff that you might want. But it’s also about discovering cool stuff everywhere you are — not just where you live. So, if you’re in a different part of town or even a whole new city go ahead and check the Rumgr feed. You might discover something amazing right then and there!
A general rule of thumb is that if you can’t take it on a plane or show your mom, it’s probably not allowed to be sold on the Internet, or on Rumgr.
Rumgr reserves the right to remove questionable items such as the ones listed above. If you have or suspect an item has been posted that violates these guidelines, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
