PLEASE REPORT ANY/ALL ABUSE ISSUES WITH USERS OF THIS SITE!
Contact us at:
The following prices/costs are subject to change. We will never charge fees
retroactively, i.e.; If we post your ad online, the cost has been met and there
will never be additional cost incurred.
Personal Ads -
Must be over 17 years of age.
No swearing, offensive, or abusive language.
No nudity in images.
No contact information in personal ads.
All rules below apply.
Our postings are free of charge except in the following areas:
Ads fall into two categories: public/commercial
All 'public' ads are free with limits in the areas of cars/trucks, motorcycles,
and real estate. We allow up to 2 different ads free, every 48 hours, for each of the listed
categories above, for individual users. All other ads are limitless and free...
Not all 'commercial' advertisement is free. If you are considered commercial, any ads including:
cars/trucks, motorcycles, and real estate, may have a cost to display and/or only show in
the commercial/business location.
Who is considered public/commercial:
Everyone starts as 'public'. This can limit your ads but that makes them free. If you have a
business, you are not automatically 'commercial'. As an example, as an employer you can place a
job ad at no cost.
WE ALLOW 'COMMERCIAL' ADS TO RUN WITH 'PUBLIC' ADS, however we
DO NOT allow 'commercial advertisement' in the public area. If you have
an ad that makes it obvious you are a business, that ad will be switched to the 'commercial'
area. This helps keep the public side more visually appealing.
The 'commercial' status has benefits: running an ad on the site is pretty cheap, and if the
users of the site vote to send your ad packing, you are sent to the 'commercial' side and
your ad is still 'live'(depending on your ad, this site may remove inappropriate ads at
OUR discretion, at any time).
If a user continually posts unacceptable ads they can be made 'completely commercial', in which
case your ads will only show on the commercial side of this site. Once again all postings are at
the discretion of this site, if it is deemed inappropriate, we reserve the right to delete the ad.
We DO NOT allow email addresses, phone numbers, or personal contact information on images
in the 'public' area.
No advertisement can include links to other sites and/or auctions unless authorized by Missulu.
Your ad will be deleted.
Missulu.com does not issue refunds for deleted ads. Any refunds will be at our discretion and will
never take place with an active account.
Missulu allows blind emailing for all advertisers. It is the selection box placed at the top left of all
ads under the logo. A user can send you an email without knowledge of your actual email address. This
is a convenience item we add to all ad pages. When/if you respond to a potential 'customer', you are
allowing them to see your real email address,
A PERSONAL CHOICE YOU ARE CONSCIOUSLY MAKING.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO ATTACH CONTACT INFORMATION WITHIN YOUR AD, IT IS A
CHOICE YOU ARE MAKING.
We accept NO RESPONSIBILITY for your decisions.
We don't recommend it, but you are an American. With freedom comes responsible decision making.
EXCEPTION - NO CONTACT INFORMATION IN PERSONAL ADS!
Basic Online Safety
Never send money or share financial information
Protect your personal information
Meet in public and stay visible to others
Tell friends and family about your plans
Take someone you trust with you, safety in numbers
Avoid contacts that are not in the contiguous United States
Report behaviour you find suspicious and/or offensive including:
1. Requests for money or donations.
2. Under age users.
3. Harassment, threats, and offensive messages.
4. Inappropriate or harmful behavior during or after meeting in person.
5. Fraudulent profiles.
6. Spam or solicitation including links to commercial websites or attempts to sell products or services.
This list will grow with time.
FAQ-These will develop over time....
A new posting doesn't work?
On the odd occasion where a listing doesn't post properly there can be two basic reasons:
1. Your past postings contained inappropriate or unacceptable TOU behavior and now
your postings have to be approved. As you may have guessed this isn't good, it's
slow and removes you from front page exposure. It will improve with every
acceptable post you place and get corrected with time.
However, if you continue inappropriate behavior, your account can be closed at the
discretion of this website.
2. Sadly, internet malfunctions (browser issues or hesitancy in your internet
connection) can be overcome by logging out of the site and signing back in.
It's rare, but it can happen.
How do I receive a blind email from someone?
Email is sent to you automatically without exposing your email address. The address
attached to the account when you opened the account is used. NOTE: Always check your email
'spam' file if you are having difficulty receiving email from Missulu. It's unfortunate but
it does happen.
HOW IT WORKS -
On the homepage click the 'new member' button and fill out the simple forms. All we require
is an active email address and username/password of your choice. It is completely free!
Welcome to Missulu!
Placing an ad-
Select 'new post' from the 'myaccount' page. Follow the instructions that follow. Ads run for
approximately 30 days, and are subject to the users of the site determining whether the content
is acceptable. As a 'public' advertiser your ad can be deleted. For a 'commercial' advertiser
your ad can be sent to the 'commercial' area or deleted.
You can list anywhere you choose. Once again, you have that right and we don't have a problem
with that.(Subject to change...)
WE ALLOW ALL PUBLIC USERS TO POST AN INDIVIDUAL ITEM ONLY ONCE IN A
GIVEN CATEGORY FOR A PERIOD OF 24HRS OVERPOSTING WILL GET YOU REMOVED!
Paid ads can post as much as desired, we don't recommend getting carried away with the
concept, it will reduce users wanting to look at your ads.
Using the site-
On the homepage, select a listed city from the drop down list and click a heading or subject area
that is closest to what you are looking for. Each advertisement page has a contact email in the
upper left corner, or within the ad itself.
Altering my post-
After 48 hours I would recommend re-posting, however you can alter your individual posts from the
'myaccount' page once you have signed in.
Delete my post-
Posts can be removed(deleted) in the 'myaccount' page. The link is broken so the ad doesn't come
up, however the ad is still there for a limited time but is not visible or available in the search.
All ads are eventually cleaned and completely removed from the server at OUR discretion.
Re-posting an ad-
If the item in your post does not sell, simply create a new post. The thought process here is the
community using this site will delete anything they find unacceptable. We completely support
Images in posts-
We allow images in most posts. We have created room for 18 images, in your post.
Recommended size is 500x375 pixels, preferably '.jpg' images, and smaller than 100kb.(Again,
subject to change.)
Text in posts-
We currently don't allow common html tags within posting areas.(This may change.)
Simple text for now.
Posting in general-
In order to post an ad, you must be signed in to your account. Some information comes from this
account and was verified when you got started. If you never verified your account, you will not
be able to post here until you have a working user name.
Due to the amount of email sent by our site, some email accounts will consider our email spam.
We can't control this, but always check to make sure you are getting the email sent to you.
