Integrity of Vintage Team IV TEAM AND CHALLENGE TREASURIES

Who can join?

Integrity of Vintage Team is a moderated team with the following requirements:

Buyers, sellers and collectors devoted to the integrity of vintage!

INTEGRITY OF VINTAGE TEAM CHARTER/EXPECTATIONS

► Follow ivteam guidelines (listed below)

► Follow Do’s & Don’ts/Terms of Use of Etsy

► All vintage items must be dated by decade or if an antique, by era. Simply listing it as "vintage" or as an "estate find" is not enough.

► Be an active team participant on a weekly basis, via discussions and/or social media.

►Team members are encouraged to use the team tag in their vintage listings (ivteam). We ask that you NOT use the team tag in listing for re-cycled, altered, or handmade items.



INTEGRITY OF VINTAGE TEAM GUIDELINES

►All vintage items must be dated by decade or if an antique, by era. Simply listing it as "vintage" is not sufficient.

If your item is currently or was recently in production, you must state why you feel that you can date this item prior to 1997 in your listing description. Just because something was an "estate find" does not make it vintage.

We ask all members to add posts in the established threads whenever possible. This will help us keep an orderly discussion base where things are easily found! You will find the link to our team Discussion Index at the top of our team page.

► All new listings posted in the team "New Listings" thread must be vintage only.

► This team is a politics "free zone." If you must talk politics, please take your discussion elsewhere.

► All team members are encouraged to use the team tag in their vintage listings (ivteam). We ask that you NOT use the team tag in listing for re-cycled, altered, or handmade items or post these items in our threads.

According to Etsy, "Upcycled, reconstructed or significantly altered vintage items are considered handmade. These items should be listed as handmade, not in the Vintage category."

► Most importantly, you are expected to treat fellow team members with respect and dignity at all times. There is a real person behind each avatar; just like you they have a real life with real problems and challenges of their own.

►Promote and support the integrity of vintage. The Integrity of Vintage Team leaders reserve the right to request the resource used to determine the era of items listed as vintage.

Last but not least, please answer each individual question on the application before submitting. Thank you very much!

This is the new permanent thread for all IV Team AND challenge treasuries! (All Promotion treasuries should be placed in the 'PROMOTION' thread.)

>>TEAM TREASURIES
Team treasuries are treasuries inspired by and/or featuring IV Team members. One of the goals of the team is to promote the team and each other. To help us stay on target for this goal, here are two rules for all 'IV Team' treasuries :

1. All treasuries posted in this thread must have the team tag (ivteam)

2. All treasuries posted in this thread must include at least one Integrity of Vintage Team member

**NOTE: Treasuries that do not adhere to both of these rules will be removed.**



>>CHALLENGE TREASURIES
Challenge treasuries are treasuries created in response to a challenge that is presented in the daily chat. Each Challenge treasury should follow the rules for that particular challenge. When posting a 'challenge' treasury, please put the word 'challenge' and the date at the top of your post, then the link to your treasury. It will look something like this:

CHALLENGE 07/02/2012

This will help differentiate between the two types of treasuries posted in this thread.

Thank you very much! Let the posting begin! =)
