Welcome to the HPC:Factor hpcBay
Revision: 2.8 ~ Last Updated: 20 March, 2007

To View the hpcBay Rules Please Click Here


hpcBay has become a very popular feature of the Handheld PC Community forums here at HPC:Factor, and like the rest of the site it has become necessary to stop and reflect upon hoe best the hpcBay can serve the community.

It is necessary for us to take into account user views as well as the needs of the site in formulating our strategies, and unfortunately in recent time there have been a number of user views expressed to us which we cannot sensibly ignore. After consultation we have decided to amend the Terms, Condition and Rules for using hpcBay to reflect the changing state of the forum.

The new rules can be found in full by clicking here.


Summary of Changes:
  • Thread Spoiling & Thread Hijacking are now listed rule breaches - everyone needs to be familiar with this!

  • Users are expressly prohibited from posting contact email addresses in threads - this can be used to circumvent the user registration requirement by third parties

  • Updated the Rules on Deal Alerts

  • Updated Rules on Closing / Suspending and Feeding back on Transactions

  • We have extended the terms of our liablity waiver

  • hpcBay is now to be used for Handheld PC related transactions ONLY

  • 1 item, 1 listing - please read the exception terms

  • Please only use the 4 post prefixes listed in the rules: REQ, FS, FA, TRADE



The new rules are now in effect and are being fully enforced. We do not expect any existing thread to be edited to reflect the changes, however any and all new threads must comply with these rules in full.

Please respect that the rule changes are not up for discussion. You either accept them, or you do not.
