    Exclamation Classified Guidelines, Read Before Posting

    Hi Everyone,

    Please follow these guidelines when you post any items for sale.

    1. No one can post to the Personal Classifieds until they have a minimum of fifty (50) posts.

    2. No more than five (5) items can be posted at one time.

    3. It is the responsibility of the thread originator to keep their list updated. All sold items must be deleted or marked as SOLD.

    4. If an item is sold and removed from the thread you may add a new item to meet your five item limit. Multiple threads with five items will not be allowed with out approval of the Forum Manager.

    5. The parties associated with a sale are solely responsible for that sale. NAFFF has no responsibility as to the condition or delivery of any items listed and sold on NAFFF.

    6. This is a free service provide for the sole purpose of helping our members sell unwanted items.

    7. No business or business related threads will be allowed.

    8. After your thread items are sold or you decide to not sell the item, you can update the Prefix of the thread. This will place a Sold or Withdrawn Prefix to the Title of the thread. That is, you can change your title from Stuff for Sale to [Sold] Stuff for Sale. Or, Stuff for Sale to [Withdrawn] Stuff for Sale. Now when someone looks at the list of Threads they can tell what threads are still active. This will only work if all members will keep their individual threads up to date.

    Procedure for changing the Prefix of your For Sale Thread.

    1. Click on your thread to open it.

    2. Click on "Edit" at the bottom right of the thread window. This will open the Thread Editor.

    3. Click on "Go Advanced" at the bottom right of the Edit window.

    4. Scan down to the Edit Post window and select "Sold" or "Withdrawn" in the "No Prefix" entry part of the Title.

    5. Click "Save Changes" and your thread will now appear in the thread list with Sold or Withdrawn in the title.

    Your directions DO NOT work for me??????
    There is no prefix window when I try to edit the post!
    It was there when I posted, but is not there when I try to edit.

    I've had some trouble with this too. I have a current thread in the Classified forum that still has the initial header when you go right to the classified page. Upon opening the thread, it does have the updates I've made, but not in the main window of the Classified Forum.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    Jay,

    After you read the PM I sent, if your problem is solved please post here how you solved it. I am not sure what I said will help but it may be the answer.

    Just wondering if perhaps you shouldn't add that items for sale must be fly fishing related.

    Ard,

    Thanks for the PM. I read and then re-read your PM as well as the instructions as to how to modify and I am still having the same issue.



    Wabi,

    Did you ever get the problem resolved? Sounds as though we may be having similar problems?

    Is it okay to post to the personal classifieds and provide a link to my ebay auction?

    Good question and one I haven't considered; how bout if you just post the 'key words' that will take any experienced eBay'er to the item until we sort this out. I know we are partnered with eBay but I don't want to start something.

    Generally our classified items are a fixed price sale. I would stick the item here with a price you would like to have and then remove it from eBay if it sells here. This can be done, eBay does not make it easy but I've removed items due to their being no longer available.

    I prefer knowing what a fellow wants if I'm really looking for an item. Any more as a seller on the auction I don't get fair prices on half my items. On top of that I lose 11% in commissions................

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Shotgunfly: Please follow Ard's advice above. After talking this over with Frank, we don't want to get in the habit of posting links to EBay on the forum. I hope you understand.
