    Usage Instructions

    1. As a list owner you are responsible for the maintainance of your own list. If you don't want something to be given to you, then please remove it from your list
    2. As a list owner you are responsible for the content of your list. Bad Language, or explicit images/links will not be tolerated. Addition of such material to the site may result in your account being suspended.
    3. When creating your list, and adding items to it, remember that more information is better. Providing links and pictures, as well as detailed description of the product and where to get it will help whoever is wanting to get you it find the correct product.
    4. Providing a price for your items is a good idea, as it helps users find what they can afford easily.
    5. As a list viewer you are responsible for following the reserve/purchase procedure
    6. The reserve/purchase procedure is as follows:
      • If you see an item you would like to reserve from someones list, then you MUST reserve it. This now means that no-one else can reserve or even see that item.
      • As soon as you purchase an item for someone, you should update the item in the list to the purchased state. This means that the item is removed from the list, and goes into your purchase history.
      • If you decide a product is not what you want to get the list owner, then you should unreserve the item immediately, so someone else can reserve it.
      • When purchasing items from the list online, please use the links provided when possible. This helps keep the site alive, and often users will provide direct links to the products they want to be bought.
      • You cannot purchase or unreserve any items that someone else has reserved
      • Although it is possible to reserve more than one item from someones list, reserving too many items at once is not fair on other users, or the list owner. Reserving activity is monitored and will be cracked down on. After a warning your account can be suspended if you mis-treat it in this way.
    7. Once you have created your list you want to let people know about it. You can use the Publicise Page to tell friends and family about your list. Remember. the more people who know about your list, the more people there are to buy from it, consequently you are more likely to get what you want for your birthday, rather than a naff tie.
    8. You can view your reservations and purchase history using the My reservations button
    9. Future enhancements will enable rewards for people who sucessfully refer people to the site. Any referrals made are already being tracked from the site, so you could win a loyalty bonus.
