    Hi ed1980

    The problem with your thread is that you do need to list what games you are wanting.
    There’s probably hundreds of games available for the Mega Drive / NES. And by you just saying “Im after any old games and consoles . let me know what you have and prices” means that this thread will be overbumped within no time at all and as a result locked.

    A maximum of 3 bumps per thread.
    Do not bump your threads excessively. It’s not fair on other users. Three bumps per thread are allowed in order to promote your listing. For this reasons, no vague threads are permitted and the item offered/wanted must be specific. Any unnecessary comments or consecutive postings within your thread will be classed as a bump or thread spoil.


    Your thread is very vague and therefore not permitted as it needs to be specific. I have requested that you supply the information so that the thread may be unlocked once requested information supplied.

    I am not being overzealous; just simply trying to get you to adhere to the rules of the FS forum.

    Thanks

    Ive made a request to buy a collection of megadrive/nes games, i could list games all day, surely that would in turn break teh rules or making countless threads requesting games

    I made a response in post 1 ed1980 and the rules haven't changed since I posted.

    If you want the thread unlocking then please send a list of the actual games that you are after. By saying 'any old game' the thread will be bumped with offers of games that you have no interest in and then further bumped with responses of 'No thanks'.

    And how can you presume that. what a joke. So unless you have experiance of a subject there is no point in using this forum site.

    As AndyWedge has pointed out, we do normally require a list of items that you wish to be offered. However as you're starting out with a blank collection, I think we can run with your current request.

    You should note that the rule also reduces threads being bumped with items for which you may have little or no interest in. Therefore we would expect you to manage this thread accordingly, no rejections based on games being unsuitable as each offer/rejection would be treated as a bump and you'd soon be over the 3 max.

    Good luck.
