Whilst the forum can be used to discuss prices and recommendations, it is NOT to be used as a means of buying or selling items to, or from, other users.

I'm no authority on the subject and can't say for certain -- seeing as the Charter simply covers long-standing basics, with sales between users (of any description) almost always being a grey area that is best handled by our dedicated sister-site which is designed to handle such things -- but that isn't saying something similar can't or won't happen.
Alas, such processes are best considered after a forum has found its feet and has an obvious (mass) desire for it. It'd be crazy to throw if's and but's so soon or get any hopes right now I'm afraid.

There's no mention of prohibition in the thread, just that buying/selling between people on the forums has always been a grey area, hence environments are typically created for it for various reasons - not all of which are solely to do with the buying/selling aspect (which can differ per forum). As for the charter, it's certainly of the old-school - one of many things that would be refined as the forum finds its feet. As it stands, the toes are still undipped and the forum is so new that it doesn't even have a carpet yet!
Either way, nothing wrong with suggestions and pre-planning - just pointing out the obvious while things get started. Rest assured that if/when such things are added, the charter would be updated to facilitate and promote it.

There is a long running buy/sell/trade thread over on the watches subforum that could perhaps be a model for something similar on this sub.https://touch.boards.ie/thread/2057227803/1
As a regular over there I can vouch that the system in place over there is largely self policing and works well.
