I believe it changed to a regular post, when PARA listed his WTS ads.
I know a little about a lot of things, but I don't know everything. I'm in the minority these days.
What is the protocol to buy an item advertised?
I was under the impression that the first "I will take it" posted in the thread was the buyer, followed by an e-mail. Lately it seems the first e-mail only, gets the purchase without ever posting. Can this be clarified?

Sigs Owned - A Bunch
Some have wives patrolling the forum and don't want them to know what they are buying so they buy anonymously! I've bought and sold plenty on the forum without posting an "I'll take it" I guess you just have to trust that the seller is honest and will give first to post or first to email dibs. But in retrospect do you really want to send your hard earned money to someone that isn't 100% honest with you?
time for a bump
I sent you an email about my ad yesterday. A few days ago I dropped prices on the items listed, and some forum filter picked up on a "keyword" and flagged the ad (which has been running for quite a while with edits as items are sold, reduced, etc). Now it is stuck in "moderation" limbo, neither showing up on the forum, nor even editable.
No change to it since monday or roundabout. No idea if it is simply gone from the system, if I should create a new ad, or otherwise.
I sent a few messages to "email@example.com" several times. And we did not hear anything from you.
We are a company based in the Atlanta / Norcross area. We would like to know how we can place ads on your Sig Forum, so that the members can see our products, like HPParts.net that's at the second spot in the classified section. We have received quite some traffic from SigForum according to Google Analytics and our shopping software tracking, and would like to know how we can work together in this regard.
Thanks for your great forum. We really like the quality of the contents and the excellent audience. And we will have win-win situation.
Please give us a proposal.

I was and am under the impression that the "I will take it" is the only way to operate a ending to a transaction.
I wish more would adopt this style.
It is the only way to "time stamp" a proper ending that is transparent.
Just my 2 cents.
"The more People I meet, the more I like Dogs."
It seems that even a "I will take it" doesn't even guarentee you will get the item.
viperjody is the first seller that I have problems with.
She sent me a email that states she will think it over whether to move forward on the transaction or not with a response in a day.
Now she has 5 posts for sale on the Sig Forum.
Is there a post requirement or membership length that's in place before you can post a firearm for sale in the classified section.
Can I post a negative feedback on a seller here or is there another place for feedback? I mean like start a thread? I just want people to know about this seller so people would be aware of this seller and how he do business with people.

This is exactly why this is my #1 forum. Everyone I've dealt with has been honorable, and I find it amazing considering everyone buys/sells/posts from anywhere in the country.
Is there a "bump" rule? I have not seen anything referring to this in the rules?
Not sure about BUMP rules, but I can tell you that moderator arcwelder76 will close your post if you're selling your item through Amazon, or Ebay, or other commercial sites. Apparently, it has to be direct to members. I only wished I got at least a courtesy warning to edit my post. In my defense, selling it through a popular process like an Amazon site gives some protections to the buyer.

Boom of Doom
Personally, I feel pretty safe with dealing with Sigforum when buying or selling. Seriously, have you seen how miscreants are dealt with? I'd rather face a pack of rabid hyenas than piss off the membership here.
What I was implying is that if a seller scams someone on Amazon, their bank account and tax/SSN number are available to Amazon staff because they can't be a seller w/o providing that info to Amazon. And refunds are probable to the unsatisfied buyer.
Forum managers don't have any personal info on members and their only recourse would be to delete the account which someone could make up another one fairly easily. But I agree, most people here are fine individuals, I guess my point was more of "buyer beware" on Internet forums in general.
