Is it just me or are the mods here abusing their powers?

they just seem to lock whatever threads they wish without reading the details properly.

I've seen it happen a few times to people in the past aswell.

It's been locked so your thread doesn't get over-bumped by people offering something that you wouldn't be interested, hence why sigma has suggested for you to compile a list of models you would be interested in.

Too many unnecessary are unfair on other threads, as it pushes their thread further down the page, decreasing the chance of a sale.

I am starting to find it amusing how such posts are only ever made by members with 500 or less posts. Mate, all I can say is that the mods normally shoot first and ask questions later. You'll find in most cases that they are right, but are completely gracious about it if they make a mistake.

As far as your thread goes, I was suspended once for not being more specific when requesting some Blu Rays- so you've done okay in comparison :thumbsup:

the thing is i see it ALL the time on here, i just never said anything because it didn't affect me until now.
2nd thread of mine in a row that has been locked for no good reason!
i understand the importance of rules but HUKD is run draconian style.

EDIT: now taking bets on how long i'll be banned for.

It happens all the time because members don't follow the guidelines for posting for sale/wanted items....and as you noticed it happening with others then you know the mods aren't just picking on you :thumbsup:

You're lucky that they're not permanently locking your thread for cross promotion :whistling:

Seems pretty self explanatory to me. List the nokia models that you are interested in stating a price your willing to pay.
#10
you should never upset certain mods as they will make ever effort to suspend you at all costs

The reason the mod gave for the lock was that i unfairly rejected a offer of £85 even though i clearly stated i only want offers between £30 and £60 .

There aren't exactly many models which fit this description. any that do fit i am interested in.

a ban is permanent, where as a suspension will give you time to cool down.

I see why you're thinking the way you are thinking, but just be specific from now on with any kind of request- to save yourself this kind of grief. If you're going to request films, make a list of say 7-15 films you'd want. Same with games. In this case, look into the models of phones you would want (as there are going to be a considerable amount of older Nokias in this category, as well as newer budget models).

Well it wont take you long to list them then! I do have sympathy with you though as people put wanted ad's for laptops for instance which has a lot wider spectrum of choice.

As above, we're still waiting on your compiled list.

The mod note was a reference to the fact that unless very specific, you will get other offers. Now you haven't been deemed a bump for the member post, just your unnecessary reply. Ignore/report for thread spoiling. Responding in the way you did caused an bump which was not required.

Rather than preach about mod power, try and have some respect for your fellow members who adhere to the rules. Your post demoted valid listings.

Ok i know that the report i made was a little offensive but there is nothing wrong with me thread. There are tonnes of threads on this forum which are MUCH less specific then mine. as i said before i am interested in all nokias which fall in that small £30 range.

my anger isn't just from this one situation, it happens way too often.

The key thing to note here is, quite simply, don't argue with a mod once they've laid down the law. Accept it and work with it or just don't list on HUKD. That's not meant to sound stand-offish, it's just the best (and only) way to deal with it!!
