I agree, we really need a template in the first post!

there is a place to add a price and it has a little star next to it, i assumed that meant you have to fill it in

Its crazy there are members with 300+ posts getting it wrong.

Also people who regularly trade on the FS/FT boards dont do it.

You need a if its in the classified it has a price regardless of if its For Sale/For Trade or if your offering it in a wanted thread.

Everyone wants a bargin so people say "I'll offer £10 for x" and then the seller starts a bidding war and doesn't respond.

Its the biggest bug bear I have at the moment with the FS/FT boards!

So why do people continously not? i.e hotukdeals.com/ite…609 or the one you recently posted in and the Seller listed prices after a week!

If its made obvious i.e. PRICE MUST BE STATED IF FOR SALE OR FOR TRADE (next to that box) then people can't say oh I didnt know and all posts without it can just be deleted with a warning to trader

yeah, I think they do, or put in 'offers'....

This should be a straight away locked thread and 1 day ban if they fail to write prices

thats my point the post above says Open to Sensible Offers.

Its not even people not being aware of the rules its just abuse

Sassie - Sorry if my other post sounded ott.

never sounded ott ot me crow, there are many things that frustrate me about the FS board, the new template that was brought out to solve probs like this has done nothing to help, to be honest i think what ever is brought in will be worked around within a day

Yeah I know although I use the 360 Classifieds over at AVForums and doesnt seem as much of a problem? Although they do make you post prices for trades

if i sell more than one thing i always enter 0 as there all diff prices...

but i get u all seems noone reads the rules...all nebies put open to offers....

It might be coincidence but that thread was closed almost the instant I reported it - remember if there is a problem with a thread on the FS forum you should use the report button (this should at very least alert a mod to the thread...)

Remember anyone who posts on the FS forum has agreed to abide by the rules, so there isn't really any excuse for not listing a price or other abuse of the rules, you can't really expect Col (or other mods) to read every single thread on the forums, there are simply too many these days, so do use the report button when you see something like the above.

Ok what about this one:

hotukdeals.com/ite…e=2

Put as one bundle with a unrealistic price people are now making individual offers and he is willing to split but not stating prices. It just seems a "fudge" of the system.

A clear notice of all items for sale or trade should be priced - Individually if willing to split

Perhaps we should also have a fixed price system, without this bidding war that happens below the price they want.

So they must enter a price in the box, and this is a non negotiable price?

I dont know. I'm sure there are no easy solutions but I really think that just by saying every item for sale or trade must be priced accordingly.

Then if willing to split all items must be priced as well, none of this 15 games £800 may split for price etc..

Please report any posts which you think are questionable. We'll take action if the same people are doing it repeatedly and offer advice to people who seem to need help.

HOW ABOUT u cannot post a thread without entering a price like it just wont allow you and it also recognises £0 so u cant enter that either

But then, every single item would need to be listed in it's own thread. It could take hours to post a large quantity of items, and fill the boards up.

My bug about the FS Boards at the moment are traders asking for broken items to fix and sell on, yet when they are reported they are not removed. And the "I have £8.39 in my Paypal Account" posts which are often pointless.

take it your referring to UFK, it is pretty obvious but of people dont mind getting peanuts for him to sell on ten let em get on with it

It annoys me how "the saint" just comes in randomly and defends people when they have put FS/FT... claiming "they want to trade, so they don't have to put a price"... well why put FS in at all then??? Ergh? Duh!

FT should have a price so people can roughly know what its worth... I will continue to post CEX prices into peoples threads that haven't priced up.

Well, don't be surprised if people may report you for thread spoiling.

(14) Please only post in a thread if you are interested in engaging in … (14) Please only post in a thread if you are interested in engaging in the sale/trade listed. Anything else will be considered thread spoiling and will be deleted.

(15) The only exception to this is if you see the EXACT item priced … (15) The only exception to this is if you see the EXACT item priced higher than available new elsewhere. In this case a third-party can make a post but ONLY in the following format: LINK TO MERCHANT - PRICE. No comments, just the facts. This must be the final price (after VAT/shipping) for a new product and from a reputable merchant. Price comparison to auction sites, classifieds or other personal sales are not allowed. Members who do not follow these posting rules face a ban from the FS/FT forum.
