You can post up to 25 different ads per day on MapList. Duplicate ads or ads that are too similar to an existing Ad that you have posted can be posted in two (2) different categories per site within your province. Any more than two and your ads will be removed. We also ask that you not post outside the province you are located in. If you violate these policies your ads will be deleted (sometimes without notice). Attempting to post after having your ads removed may result in a "blocked" message notifying you that you have posted too many ads. To avoid this, please list whatever you are advertising only once per site within your province. If you want to re-list an item that you are already advertising on the site, delete your existing Ad first.

Posting a listing with a link to another web site for the sole purpose of directing visitors to that web site is not permitted. You may, however, include a link in your post if it is to give the user more information about the item being offered (for example product details, pictures, etc.).

You are not permitted to defame anyone or include "hate speech" directed at individuals or groups in your postings. MapList reserves the right to delete any Ads from the site that are deemed to negatively impact the community. If you encounter any such Ads, please flag it as such or contact us.
