Someone is going to be asking me real soon why they can no longer access Classifieds. I just want to demonstrate to this member that this information is common knowledge among those who actually wish to be a member of this forum.

What do I tell members about the use of Classifieds in this forum, gentlemen? There's more than one correct answer.

Don't post something posted in our classifieds somewhere else?

No crossposting.

Exclusive listings, yes. What else? The Classifieds section of this forum is provided as a courtesy for whom? For any registered member?

The classified section is for members who post in and take part in the forums, not just posting in the classified section.

The classified section also isn't an auction site and prices are required except for rare circumstances (example Proto 1).

No... for participating members. Its a courtesy, not free bandwith for those here only to buy and sell.

The Classified section is intended for participating members, that's correct. Just being registered is not enough. You want to use the market place? Then, be a real member of this forum. We will not be used.

Thou shalt post items for sale only on SigForum classifieds and no where else, or thy WTS shall be nuked.

This is the first and great commandment, and the second is like unto it.

Thou shall be a contributor to the community and not a leach of bandwidth for sales in commerce only.

On these two commandments hang your privileges in the classifieds and the ban-hammer.

I like to think of the classifieds as a swap meet among friends, not a gun show among strangers. With rare exception among some vendors with specific permission, the classifieds is not a place for you to hawk your wares professionally.

"I just mostly lurk and read a lot. I don't hardly say anything as there are so many here that are more knowledgeable than me. But I sure do like to buy and sell stuff so that's how I contribute."

"Besides, me bringing my stuff here to sell is a service to the members that buy them."

It doesn't answer the question but those are the memorable postings that I've seen on the topic.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

That it is a priveledge, not a right....

It is not meant for random people to make a living, but for active members who are part of the community to trade....

Guess someone messed up.

Nothing irks me more than "member" with the very first post as a WTS ad. It tells me everything I need to know. You have no intention of participating as a member. You're only interested in selling your trinkets. Roll Eyes

Also if you post a WTS ad keep up with it and check on it frequently.

Always post a price. No auctions allowed.



Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice - pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

1. Deal fairly and honestly. Buyer and seller.
2. Problems get resolved by owners and designated moderators, not disrespectful post warfare. Their decision is final.
3. What everyone else said.

ETA: And you do not talk about Fight Club.
