Magicbeans,

Thanks for letting us know beforehand. Please ensure that you receive and accept a suitable bid publicly on your thread when in a position to advertise.

I have seen the comments earlier in the Dell Mini thread regarding the item being of no use to you by a certain date. Please ensure item is in hand before offering within fs/ft.

As no fs/ft thread has been created, then PM's are exactly that. Private messages between 2 members.

Bear in mind that there shouldn't be any profiteering either, so the item can only go for cost price + new postage charge to the buyer. However just make sure you are happy to sell, otherwise it's a pain should the product require some sort of warranty repair anytime from delivery through to the end of the 1st year.

It won't stop others from posting in the thread making you an offer, however it would be a waste of time as it's always up to the OP to decide with whom to trade.

Nice of you to consider passing on the misprice so that another member may benefit.
#18
i hope said X person is me! lolol
#19
still seems like rules have been broken here as a trade has been 100% agreed by pm, which is against the rules,

can i just ask what the problem was in this thread then please?

doesnt seem to be any! member posted thread. knew you were looking for baby clothes you made offers on thread, offers were accepted.

as the other thread in feedback has been locked:? in answer to asb last point I thought all fs/ft rules applied across all the sections now but from your last point it would seem that they dont which would appear to be in contradiction what is said everytime a valuation thread is locked in misc.

all rather confusing.

totally agree. he shirked the whole main point of the thread and never stated if pming to agree a sale was against the rules or not!

yeah the only thing I can make out from his answer was that he never dealt with themain point of the thread only rehashing the fs/ft trade rules.

Oh well this will prob be locked as well fairly soon but I take it that you can negotiate deals as long as there is no thread in fs/ft and then once the deal has been done it's then fine to open a thread and re hash the deal theat already been done.

The only thing that's confusing is why members continue to attack a mod even after this^^^^^^^^^.

Must be a Rangers thing?:oops:

I could throw a lasso round most of the feedback threads re FS/FT and always catch the same members 9/10 times.

I've answered the thread, all trades must adhere to the FS/FT rules and members should follow the trading advice. This specifically applies to all items in FS/FT with the added inclusion of valuation threads in misc. Sales can't be conducted within the forum anywhere else.

We don't advise trading via PM, nor does it apply in this specific case. The member in question is passing on a misprice at cost to one member. It's a gesture to be admired, not as a reason to exploit by the minority.

I'll ignore the r=trolling rangers thing.

That would be fine but the point is once the negotiation/deal via pm have been done then a fs/ft trade thread is going to be opened. If there wasn't going to be any fs/ft thread then there is no issue aas asb said is that its private between 2 members but as soon as a fs/ft thread is opened then surely that falls under the no dealing by pm rule.

Unfortunately i don't believe the aim of this is for rule clarity..............it's just for the same suspects to take pot shots at ASB again.

These are the same suspects who criticise others for doing the same to BG1 etc and then ironically do the same to a mod.

if thats directed at me then I have never once personally attacked asb they way others attack BG1 or in any form and would never dream of doing so. I don't see anything wrong with a bit of healthy criticism or clarification of the points that are being made.

your not allowed to ask a question on this site mate without getting classed as a troll or getting told you are attacking someone! its a joke! simple rule clarification turned into a farce as usual by the same ppl!

The amount of stick and abuse consistently aimed at ASB is awful. It wouldn't happen to Juliet Bravo, Rayman or Emma as people know they would likely suffer harsh punishment.

LOL you causing trouble again beans? LOL...:p

Wait til you get the item you are selling.
Post the listing in FS/FT with full description and pix.
Put in 2nd post the pic and in large font - For the attention of or something else like 'First refusal to '

....lastly, hope that aSBo doesnt see it or he will toast your derrier!!!... LOL ...JOKING!!!!!

I think that should satisfy the rules for the FS/FT...

...one final thing....always be sure to have the buyer post the offer that they want to buy and you post your acceptance.....then its a done deal!!!

:-D:p

no question was asked. asb has consistanly failed to keep up the standards set by the other mods. You say they dont get stick as they dont struggle to keep up with simple rules the way asb does.

it was a statement i made which is backed by the acts put forward by the mod himself
