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 dont want to come across as overbearing, but I think that a simple fix is within reach.

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.

This poll was intended to get feedback on splitting the For Sale forum into two sections:
* One with prices
* Another with no prices, looking for offers

Yet we get a solid majority to say they don't want to split the forum and also many comments that say prices should be required.

Rather than have a separate forum for "best offer" we should tell those who want to sell for offers to price your item or go away? I'm hearing most say to leave the For Sale forum alone.

AGAIN! I dont mean to be overbearing, but.... Your first poll clearly proved, that the members want prices posted!

Why bother with a poll, if NOTHING is going to change?

Why have guidelines, if certain memebers, dont have to follow them?

Why post something for sale, without a price?

It is simple if you do not have a price put it in the value section , then post it with a price when you figure out one . You are the only one that knows what you want for your item.


Remember you are only as good as your help
If you don't make any noise no one will hear you!

I cant even fathom the concept, of something being listed "For Sale", without a price!

I have an Idea Lets Talk about Signs, Oil Cans & Gas Pumps isn't that what this sight is about???

Lets quit complaining and Start enjoying this site. Never gonna make everybody happy. If you don't Like the way the "For Sale" section is stop looking at IT!!!!!! I can not believe that people complain so much about it when it is offered to use with "NO CHARGE" !!!!!

TIME TO LOCK THIS POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the moderators suggested that we could start a new forum for the sellers who want to sell by asking for offers. That way the complainers could avoid that forum.

That apparently is an impossible solution.

* If we keep the For Sale forum as it is, we will keep getting complaints about those asking for offers.

* If we require prices, we lose the participation of some new members and some who prefer doing business in a way many others do not prefer.

So there is no easy fix if we run off the minority of members who want to sell by best offer.

I agree that posting a price is the best way to sell an item. But I'm tolerant of those who think differently than I do.

The poll shows that most don't want to split up the For sale forum. The comments show that a split wouldn't have resolved anything. Thanks for your participation. We'll keep the For Sale forum as it is.
