I give up trying to sell or trade on here.....

20 replies
Found 22nd Sep 2009
I tried to sell my decks a few months ago and got a infraction and that I remember a temp ban for:-

1. Bumping a thread accidently 3 times over the course of 2 months
then....
2. Relisting said thread earlier than I should have.

Fair enough, hands up. I broke them accidently but I accept rules are rules.

But have now tried to swap my decks for a camcorder as I require one for video editing but I'm presuming my thread is now locked because I didn't give a good enough description on what I wanted.... ?? I don't know exactly what make, spec or features I want from it.... I just know I need a camcorder that records things!!! Can I just add this to the description and possibly mention HDD or DV etc or is this going to end up being locked again? I may try one more time before I just ebay the bloody things....

yep some of the rules seem so silly i agree with u on this

Just mention that your looking for a sony panasonic but will consider others.

I seen your thread, don't know why it was locked...I've been a member on here for years, and I rarely buy or sell stuff because of all the rules, personally, I think it sucks!
I have a JVC DV cam that I could swap you for your decks? :thumbsup:

yep, a major rethink of the rules is needed.

Some of them are only there because someone thought the mods would have a ball enforcing them.

that pic you posted counted as a bump - thread locked

that question you answered counted as a bump - thread locked

good times...

yeah like being accused of being a trader and a liar, TRUST ME I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!

i`d never waste my time trying to sell on here with the small minded sheep like mod/admin "TEAM"

i just let them delete my thread, laughed, sold my item on eBay, got my positive feedback!

so dont waste your time, you have made th right decision!

now lets wait for all people who reply to get a warning or banned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont really understand the problem ,The thread has only been locked temporarily as your ad is vague to say the least.You say you want to sell or swap but you havent put a price, You say you want a camcorder but that could mean anything from a £50 chinese toy to a £2000 professional camcorder,Ob viously a thread this vague will get many ridiculous offers and be bumped evry two minutes,Why dont you just decide what you want and have the thread reopened,

Then there are some who look like they buy stuff to sell on in the FS section,ya know the ones who have loads of new stuff to sell most of the time and they don't get threads locked etc hmmmm

Banned

i understand your frustration but making the ad vague encourages unfairness to other threads, like very tom, dick and harry offering you what you dont really want. you have to remember most of the ruoles in place come from members asking for them

just put a bit more detail such as below and it can be reopened:

DV,HDD or flash memory?

approx price you are willing to pay?

High or Standard Def?

not really a big issue

Can i ask... What is a BUMP?? lol

a bump is when you post, it bumps the thread back to top of page, so anyone who wants to bump the thread back to top can just type anythinf and it bumps the thread back to top of page

Replying in a thread so that it`s "bumped" back to the top.

Without being funny if you think there suss report them, most of the time theres only one Mod on that section at any time, they can't go through all the listings.

I'm always amazed at sale prices some people ask for used clothes, near store prices :w00t:

Cheers for all the info guys. When I've got more of an idea what I want, I'll try again and add all the info that Boothy and Adam mentioned. Tony, reason I can't specify exactly what I want is because 1. I don't know exactly and 2. There would be less of a chance that someone reading the thread has the exact camcorder I mention - MarzBarz idea could work if this is the case.

I haven't forgot about you rehydrated :-D I'll let you know when I make a new thread so we can talk about it in there

wouldn't be surprised if your thread is locked permanantly and you wouldn't be allowed to relist for 7 days due to this thread maybe being considered cross promotion.
