I have been trying to sell my laptop on this website for many weeks, I broke some forum rule about selling it on another website etc... but that was supposed to be taken down by Gumtree but they were having technical problems... its now been deleted, so it got deleted a few days ago and I have had 2 wait 7 days before I can post the laptop again, Guess what? its the 7th day today and I posted the laptop again here and NOT on any other website, the link for this is below check my comment. But for some reason, a moderator locked my thread today saying its on another website! But its not! you have made a mistake! you are referring to the "old" thread for which I received infraction! so please unlock my thread! I have contacted the moderator who locked my thread and also the website using the "contact us" link, but still no reply...

Unfortunately the mod's are very strict, they are probably counting down the seconds on their stop watch till you can post your laptop again.

the mod should at the very least explain why they locked your thread. sloppy work if they didnt as it provides you with no guidance on how to proceed. unfortunately some are like that. contact the mod that locked the thread and ask them for a reason. :thumbsup:

the mod posted a link saying that the laptop was posted on another website! but of course like I mentioned above, that ad on another website was deleted a few days ago, and I posted my laptop today! and I have waited the required 7 days, it even said on my last post something like "posted 1 week 53 minutes ago". :?

ur not understanding the problem here, the reason for locking the thread is that it was posted on another website, but it was not posted on another website. It has nothing to do with the 7 days, I have waited the required time...

Yes it was closed because you listed too early, but you haven't received an infraction to stack on top of your others.

Here's the rule again if you didn't get it the first couple of times



(19) When a thread is expired, closed or removed from the FS forum, the same items must NOT be relisted until a period of at least SEVEN DAYS has passed from the date it's closed and expired. Those same items must NOT be listed or offered in ANY other active thread. * It's YOUR responsibility to use the 'report' button http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339812/thread-locked-for-what/../../../forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif to have your active threads closed BEFORE relisting.

lol then the reason for locking should have been not waiting the required time! not "it was posted on another website"! If the reason for locking is that I didn't wait 7 days(should have waited 30 minutes more) can this be reversed as I obviously misunderstood that 7 days from locking not 7 days from posting lol

You mean after the third infraction and creating another user? Or from the time this one above was closed?

Firstly the thread was locked on the basis that it was listed elsewhere, it has since been established that this wasnt the case so the lock should have been removed.

However it is now transpiring that the post was listed approx 30 mins prior to the full 7 days must pass before listing rule? ,,,,, this is pretty pedantic stuff. Someone is obviously bored.

Like I keep saying, and its been proven true up until now. A lack of consistency, clarity and application of the rules. enuf said.

Unfortunately OP this is the way things work so we have to deal with it. :)

Edit : Just wait the full 7 days OP, and list it on the 8th....and dont break any other rules..lol

you're supposed to notify HUKD if there's two folk in same house wantin to use the boards? that's a bit strange....

and not two folk in same house selling? what about parents with teens... all wantin to sell. flat mates... multi tennancy house?
