Your full name, first name, Nickname, email address name, number, etc. It might be necessary to check the trader list of your country to make sure that your name isn't already taken. Two traders may not use the exact same spelling of a name.

A link to your page will be placed under every category that you select. PS Don't list 'Other' as a category. Tell us what the category is ie Vinyl, MP3, DAT, etc.
Do you want to receive feedback from others? Feed back in the tradition of Ebay is a great way for you to build a reputation. Unlike ebay, it can't be abused by somebody who happens to be mad at you. Still, there are those who might choose not to have their trades documented. Put a 'Y' or 'N', 'Yes' or 'No', etc. in this section to tell us whether you choose to accept feedback from other traders. If you leave this blank, the option will be there automatically for others to leave you feedback. You will also be given the option to remove any feedback others have left.
Your On line list:

You can see an example here, or scan through the other traders policies for ideas. If you leave this blank, the 'Trade Policy' link on your page will read "None Specified".

I'm looking for: Optional. If you
this blank, the 'I'm looking for' link on your page will read "Nothing
Specified". We don't have the space or time to list 100 individual

Q: I'm a computer newbie How do I 'copy and paste'?
Cut and paste, or copy and paste are two simple procedures that will allow you to more fully enjoy the benefits of your computer experience. Your computer is able to copy anything that you want it to. From a single word, to an entire book. To copy: click on the first word that you want to copy. Keep holding down the click, and drag your mouse down to include the last word. See how it is highlighted? Everything that is highlighted will be copied. Move the mouse anywhere into the highlighted area, and it will most likely change to an arrow. While it's an arrow (or,... while it's touching the highlighted area), right click your mouse (the other button that you don't normally use.) When you right click, a menu will appear. Select 'copy'. Now the material is copied onto your virtual clipboard. It will stay there as long as your PC remains on, but remember... only one thing at a time can be on your clipboard. No matter how small or how large. If you do the copy procedure again, you'll lose whatever is currently on the clipboard. You can now paste the contents of your clipboard anywhere you want. Keep in mind that the pages on the internet are in a 'Read Only' format. While you can copy anything you like, you cannot paste anything to a website. Some sites have boxes that allow you to type information into. Here's the rule of thumb: Anywhere you can type... you can paste. The exceptions to the rule, for security reasons, are most password boxes. To paste, right click again. From the same menu, click 'paste'. Anywhere you can type... you can paste. Paste the info into an e-mail, onto your notepad, into wordpad or any word processor, etc. etc.
