The Metalpeer Community will only display/load if you're a member and logged in. If you're Not logged in, the Metalpeer Community will not display/load because it's a members only feature of the website. This was created like this to keep non-members from lurking on the website and using up bandwidth. The more bandwidth the website uses, the higher the monthly server charges will be for Metalpeer. So think of it as a way to keep non-members out and keeping operation cost down.
The sole idea of Metalpeer was to have an all Heavy Metal related auction website with low selling fees for users. As with any business, if you cut cost in one place, you've got to pick it up in another. The one time only $5 verification fee helps keep other website fees down. It also was put into effect to verify our members (buyers and sellers) through third party payment providers such as paypal. You will only be charged a second verification fee if you join under a second user name.
In the past over at that other auction site, there would be a nice metal auction going on. Then a troll comes along, creates a new user name (with 0 feedbacks) and runs the auction up. Once the troll wins the auction and beats out real people who would of paid for the item. The troll vanishes never to be seen again, leaving the seller to pay end of auction fees on the sale!
When the user pays his/her verification fee thru paypal, they will be verified. Now that the user/person is verified and their ip address is recorded from when they registered, the playing field is fair!
METALPEER = NO TROLLS!
Non members are granted a certain amount of auction listing views before the non member is re-directed to a login page. If you're being re-directed to a login page, you're either a non member or you're not logged in as a member. All non members will have access to see what's listed but after a certain amount of auction listing views, you will not be able to view any auction listings pages.

No membership fee will be refunded for any reason. It doesn't matter if you were banned or if your internet connection was turned off, no refund will be given.
Please refer to the site fees section of the website for detailed information on website fees.
You can list unlimited items auction style, buy out style and make offer style 100% free. The only time you will be charged to list any item is if you choose any of the Featured Enhancements such as: Home Page Featured, Category Pages Featured, Highlighted Item, Bold Item or Featured Daily Deal.
All images are 100% free! We ask that you keep them at 12 or under, but if you feel you need more to describe your item, then please use more at no charge to you.
Wanted Ads do cost $1.00 to list. The only reason we did this is because we didn't want metalpeer to turn into a craigslist full of useless want ads of people searching for items readily available on metalpeer or else where. So we figured if you're really searching for a super rare metal item and you really want it, pay the $1.00 and track that item down from someone in our metal community.
All listings will incur an end of auction fee as listed on our Site Fees page. Please read there for further information.
Metalpeer is an all Heavy Metal related auction website. The idea was to only feature an item if it related to the Heavy Metal genre. So say you want to list a drinking glass. If the glass is a plain glass, then no you can't list it to be sold on Metalpeer. Now let's say the glass has an Iron Maiden logo on it. The glass is now Heavy Metal related and can be listed and sold on Metalpeer.
Since day one of putting this website together, the staff here at Metalpeer have been bickering about what is metal and what's not? Ask yourself; is AC/DC Metal? Some will tell you hell fucking yeah, while others will disagree and claim they're Hard Rock. This is why we say an all Heavy Metal related auction website.
THE QUESTION IS: WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE?
The obvious is a no brainer. If it's metal, then you can list it. It may be a funk metal band that some will tell you they're not metal, they're funk. The bottom line, in today's scene, they'd be considered metal even though a true metalhead can't hear the metal because it sounds like funk to them. I could write a million lines on this topic and never run out of words. If the band borders the Heavy Metal genre, go with your gut and list it. Most of these to list or not will be bands that many won't know if they're Metal or Hard Rock?
I always go back to one question;
When I hear this band do I want to bang my head and raise my fist?
Did you read the question before this one?
Anyone can list an auction with a media download if you own the rights to the music you're uploading for sale to be downloaded. Metalpeer will not be a source or place that anyone can sell anyones music! All media downloads will be approved by staff before going live because each download will checked.
