Due to abuse of this thread (eg: People trying to profit from affiliate links) it now has the following rules. Breaking the rules will result in your post(s) being deleted and you being locked out of the thread without warning.
If you see anyone posting affiliate links or anything not permitted, please report the post immediately and don't reply to it.
IN AMAZON LINKS PLEASE REMOVE EVERYTHING AFTER THE PRODUCT ID.
For example, in the following URLS, everything in red should be removed when posting it:
If you got a link from a newsletter or site it will almost certainly have an affiliate link in it so this is why we ask you to remove the end of all Amazon URLs. See below.
- Group buy/mass buy site links or discussion about them are also not permitted. That includes hinting. Group buys on Head-Fi are not allowed due to issues in the past with predatory pricing, companies being harassed to sell cheap (which screws over their dealers) and vendors being overwhelmed to the point people lost money.
- If you find a price that is too good to be true, then it probably is. Hong Kong and Chinese eBay sellers often have fakes and there are many generic web sites popping up with impossible prices. If the web site with the link doesn't have full details of the company, including their actual location and a generic "About us" statement then it shouldn't be trusted and shouldn't be posted about.
- Affiliate links, eg: Links to Amazon or other sites with your affiliate ID inserted are not permitted. It is a ban-able offence (as is spam advertising).
- "Free iPad" and similar sites are also forbidden. This can also get you banned.
