Hi @Freebee2,

I have a question. How the rule below affects Sell / Swap / Trade / Buy section? Will it be a separate guideline on what is allowed for sale there?


Great question.

I’d say it would be fine to buy/sell a nuc/queen etc. here or a second hand hive you can no longer use, but not to use as a platform to promote your own business or product.

I’ll check if there are any further guidelines around this too, but mostly the guidelines are to help ensure that the forum is a space for Flow hive users to connect and talk bees, so these are less hard and fast rules and more about ensuring that posts support the spirit of that.

Hope this makes sense :slight_smile:
