Books for Sale

Sorry if I was a little harsh. If you had said that you were doing because of financial issues, I probably would have held off.

I guess I'm used to nearly all special interest forums I'm having a "no classified ads" policy for new users unless they've been on the site for a while or have posted a specified number of messages before posting an ad.

I guess I also have a think about people who post messages with headers offering books for sale and then find out that they're just linking to Ebay auctions. It just makes the person look like the only reason they're coming here is for personal gain, not to contribute to the community.

I am not the moderator here, so I don't make the rules, but I do reserve the right to complain about behavior that irritates me (just as everyone complains about mine). This forum's moderator is the most mellow and bestest moderator in the entire world, and almost nothing gets him frazzled.

Anyway, welcome to the site and I wish you the best of luck in dealing with your financial situation...we've all been there, and some of us (like me) never seem to get out of them....

There wasn't even one crappy elephant joke in the above post. His standards are slipping. :D

We used to have a trading thread - it probably got buried somewhere. That was just this sort of thing.

Good luck with the sales. :D


Idea for you tony why not get Jason to create a new section, for trading etc, I bet it would be a sure fire hit etc, as I have run a few forums with marketplace sections, I could easily help you draft a set of guidelines up for the section??

Just an idea anyway ;)


To be honest, we really don't get that much in the way of trading and selling here. I don't think it warrants a section of its own. :)
