    Exclamation PLEASE READ! >>> Listing for sale items <<<

    Hi folks - over the past month or so many sellers are starting a thread for each individual item they are selling. So, three lenses for sale and three threads.

    It would be very useful if you would combine your sales into a single thread.

    For example: three lenses to sell.....

    FS: Leica M lenses 28, 35, and 50 all mint

    Mixed Gear
    FS: Panasonic G3 camera and various M4/3 lenses

    When users come to the site and hit the new posts sometimes the majority of the top posts are from the B/S forum and it is harder to see real photography dialogue.

    Thanks!

    Folks, we may be amending the rules to allow only ONE post in the B&S per person per day REGARDLESS of whether it's a FS post or just a comment on somebody else's listing. It's simply getting too popular and ads are moving off the front page quickly. If we cannot control it effectively, we will have to move to a paid subscription model for the B&S.

    Also folks if your NOT directly involved in buying or selling on a item in a listing than please do not make comments . This section of the forum is NOT for casual dialog example ( great lens bought one 3 weeks ago ). When in doubt read the buy and sell forum rules. We simply are getting too big to let this spin out of control so it is strictly enforced by our staff. You can chat all day long on the main forums on topics here in the buy and sell view it more as a newspaper ad that you ask direct questions on a item and seller can answer. Thanks

    By combining items, it makes it easier to comply with the rules which only allow 3 active threads at one time.

    Add "SOLD" in a reply line when the item sells and moderators will change the title to SOLD.
