Help on FS/FT guideline interpretation please!

Got an ipod to sell, and have offered it on somebody else's 'wanted' but there's no response from him yet and I would like to put it up for sale. Am I allowed, or do I have to wait to hear either way …

Guidelines say:
You cannot list items if you have a live listing for the same item or item type elsewhere.

This includes ‘Wanted’ threads. This is aimed to ensure that all negotiations are contained within the thread and no reference/bargaining to offers made elsewhere. Members do not always have access to other forums and are unable to verify such statements
.

which I can interpret 2 ways: either I'm not allowed to offer a FS because I've already offered the item for sale in a wanted post, or it means that you're just not allowed to post wanted posts here if you have wanted posts elsewhere.

Help appreciated!

I wouldn't want to hazard a guess because i guarantee whichever one you pick will be wrong and get you in trouble. X)

I believe it means you cant list on ebay etc at the same time as selling on here.

Don't forget the hidden rule.............we have discretion that means even if you are right it means we can still make you wrong. X)

Your ok to list it in your own for sale thread as well as offer it to other people in their wanted thread.
Although you just better hope the mods dont take this thread as gathering interest in which case you might have to wait 7 days from locking this thread lol

Pretty sure you can offer an item in a 'wanted' thread and then set up your own 'for sale' thread, I've seen people do it on here. So long as you only sell it once and stick to the rules I don't see any issues.

lol...that's what I thought!

I'm sure it must mean that you can't post a wanted if you already have wanted posts elsewhere.

But it's not so clear.

Any way of getting hold of a mod easily?

You're joking...I hope?! oO That's why I generally have avoided selling here - too scared I'll mess up with the rules!! Sold one item and it took me the entire evening to list it because I kept double checking
