Some remarks related to placing a classified ad:

  • Placing (and viewing) classified ads is only possible for MFN members (as well within the Netherlands as abroad). Non-members can see the overview of all classified ads, but not the detailed information of an ad.
  • There are rules and terms for placing an ad. The MFN will check whether placed ads comply with these rules, and remove ads that don't. For members who repeatedly place ads that infringe on the rules, it will be made impossible to place new ads!
  • The maximum width to display images is 750 pixels. Images that are wider, will automatically be reduced to a width of 750 pixels.
  • The maximum size of image files is approximately 8 MB (8000 kB).
  • Your contact data are stored when you place your first classified ad, and are automatically re-used for new ads. When you want to change the stored data, just overwrite them. When the ad is saved, the new data will be stored.
