There have been a lot of threads deleted from this forum recently from people essentially wanting to start their own business. You can't advertise here to charge $ for stereo installs, hauling stuff away, doing odd jobs, etc. That would be advertising as a non-wheeling vendor, which is not allowed.

If you're in doubt whether something you want to post here is okay, PM me or another one of the moderators.

What's the purpose of this forum? This section is specifically for individuals seeking employment with an established company, or an established company looking for employees. It's not a place to post that you need help with working on your rig, your house, etc. That type of post should go in the Wanted forum.

Only 4x4-related businesses are permitted to advertise on CO4x4. If someone wants to put a small inconspicuous blurb in their signature advertising their services I tend to let that slide, but the key is inconspicuous. As soon as it is interpretted as a blatant advertisement it violates the rules and intent of this website.

The Help Wanted section is not to be bastardized by individuals looking for help making money. This section is specifically for individuals seeking employment with an established company, or an established company looking for employees. It is absolutely not intended for individuals or entities seeking customers.

If you offer a service or product for profit, then you are considered commercial. If you are doing so with a 4x4-related service or product, then such posts must be confined to the Vendor Showcase forum (subject to approval and an active vendor subscription). Commercial posts of any kind are not permitted elsewhere on CO4x4.

The classifieds For Sale sections are provided for personal, non-commercial use only. If you are in the habit of selling used parts/items for profit, then for the purposes of CO4x4 you are considered commercial and such posts are prohibited in the classifieds section. I am well aware that several members are eager to offer non-4x4-related goods and services, but at this time there is no means for doing so on CO4x4. Opening up the commercial side of CO4x4 to non-4x4-related businesses is, IMO, a step away from the intended focus of this website. This is exclusively an offroad enthusiast website and must remain so.

I had an add on here for a trim carpenter in boulder.
I am a incorporated general contractor in business for 15 years
Looking for a subcontractor for trim work. I call that Help wanted.
Want to try to find someone in our little community to help out in the bad economy.
I don't know how you think that is advertising or something outher than my company looking to give someone a job. You can delete post if you feel I'm using your form incorrectly.
