Oh my gosh, please just leave it. You would destroy this site in weeks. Maybe some people should get a different hobby if stuff like this bothers them. If you don't like it then step back from the computer and go for a walk or something. I would think it would be so much work and effort for the mods that it would drive them nuts. Now back to the hunt, have a good week everybody.

Please use For Sale forums to sell

Please - NO offers to Buy or Sell in this forum category

Statements such as, "I'm thinking about selling this." are considered an offer to sell.

One thing that I've learned by being in business, (run a forum) is if you give your customers (members) options, they will Hem & Haw you to death! Example...

There has already been a poll here, about listing a price on "For Sale" items. The poll proved, that the members want a price. Thats a simple fix. No price, no listing!

If ya wanna trade, thats a simple fix, just say ya wanna trade for something.

If ya wanna auction it, thats a simple fix, Just say ya wanna auction it, bidding starts at however many dollars!

NO MORE FORUMS! Simple fix, for a simple problem!

I think a simple solution is REQUIRE all items are priced if they are For Sale. Most other sites do it and it is very simple and trouble free

There's already another forum for sellers that can't list a price, it called "Petroliana Value Questions". I applaud the concern, but this might be a good one to just let the chips fall where they may.

Leave one section but delete the ads with "make an offer". As another member said "it's your item price it".

Jim, It's your site period do what you like!
I will add my 2 cents... this isn't ebay where you have the option to start low and see if it goes up.
Use the "value wanted section" and then sell it in the for sale area with a price and a picture!
I think the rules need to be price and picture or pictures!
I agree to many are fishing or hoping to not leave $10 on the table.


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

There are clearly two very different views on this subject. The difference is that people who think "prices should always be listed" are wanting to force others to do business their way. On the other hand, no one has ever been forced or even pressured to "make an offer". I too like to see a price, but respect other peoples right to conduct there affairs as they see fit, so long as they are honest in doing so. Not that hard, if you don't want to make an offer.....
here it comes......
"Don't make an offer"

So, what you're saying is, if you have a Porcelean Powerlube sign, say 9.5 condition with no price, you shouldnt be offended by an offer of $25.00.

I think the for sale forum should be changed to no price = no ad. The make offer ads annoy me.

Thunder... everyone of those posts on this site that does not have a price posted the seller has a price in mind they want for it. They know what they will take for it... they are just seeing if something comes in higher is all.
