We have had difficulties with some new members selling items in recent years. New members are not enabled to post New Topics in the For Sale forums until they have demonstrated knowledge of the forum and how our online community works with their posts. After 8 such posts, including posting an image, new members may request an upgrade to regular privileges.

I invite new members to post a New Topic on our Welcome New Member forum to introduce yourself or tell about your interests. (Items are not permitted to be offered for sale there)
http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=20

New members may post New Topics in other forums, reply to any topic and read any topic to build an understanding of how our online community works.

Please read and follow the For Sale Guidelines:

Just click on "Contact" on the upper right of any page of the forum. Use the email address that you registered as your return address. That way I know who you are.

Navigating around well and figuring stuff out pretty quick, but had a question, I couldn't figure out on my own. I've noticed on some peoples post, after they post a picture of something, they reply to their post with:"bump". What does this mean? Thanks for your help, and please excuse my ignorance.

Thanks so much Oldgas-Jim, and I am assuming that means that a posting selling member must wait at least 72 hours after listing the item/s or after a bump, before they can bump it again. If different please let me know. Just trying to get up to speed. It also appears that maybe some members compliment an item for sale by saying "like" or "nice" to bump it for them possibly? Or are members just very complimentary? Again, just learning. Thanks for all you do and for the site Jim "Oldgas" Potts!

The rule is:
"New members are not enabled to post New Topics in the For Sale forums until they have demonstrated knowledge of the forum and how our online community works with their posts. After 8 such posts, including posting an image, new members may request an upgrade to regular privileges."

Posting a normally sized photo is required. The rule does not say "8 pics."

New members may sell on eBay and post an announcement about it on our "Online Auctions, eBay" section of the forum.

If you are still confused, you can read over the "Welcome... READ FIRST" email that we sent when you joined the forum, or send a message via the "Contact" link at the top of this page.
