    Folks, Ken Edwards, our administrator, took the time to simplify and post the for sale rules in the post titled "New Rules...". Please review them, even if youre a veteran of these pages, as some thing have changed, all for a smoother running and more fair section for all.

    ****SELLERS...Give people a method of contacting you. Id suggest email or phone in addition to telling them about the PM option, as some folks seem to have trouble with it.

    ****BUYERS...Dont comment in the post, or tell the sellers to contact you...use those contact suggestions. We have been editing all the comments off, as per the rules, which means many of you are losing out on purchases to someone else who follows the rules. As I edit, I have been taking the time to contact the sellers for you, but Im not going to keep doing so.

    We realize theres new members who dont know, veterans who didnt see the changes, excited people who forget, and a few dumbells. Please, like I said, take a few minutes to brush up on the rules. Thanks to everyone playing by the rules, and to all, good luck buying and selling.

    Yep Bob, we covered that one with discouraging ANY comments on for sale posts. Chronic rule breakers will get a note in the mailbox.

    Again I cannot stress enough, sellers...offer these buyers some ways to reach you!!!! Some members do not know they can click on your name to get your email if you posted it, or that itll prompt a PM, personal message. We are editing off many comments in the posts daily from folks who are not yet up to speed on the rules, and those are lost sales for you too. I always send then a reminder, so they can try you privately, but sellers, help yourselves out.

    see several just today where guys bump their own ad in a day or three, where folks post on ads rather than pm the seller. I don`t see the report to moderator option anywhere.
