    The rule is simple.
    ANY ITEM OFFERED FOR SALE MUST HAVE AN ASKING PRICE.
    From now on,any adds without an asking price will be deleted when seen and the poster will need to contact the moderator with a price in order to have it re-instated.

          How about getting the WANTED ads out of the For Sale section. Also lets have the Ads related to fishing, look at the current Wanted "wanted new suit "?
          Just a suggestion......REPLY IS BELOW.
          We do on occasion move threads to the correct/more appropriate sections but I doubt it"s top of the priority list.
          As for the suit I"m pretty sure it a fishing suit he"s looking for,but I could be wrong, as far as none related items are concerned,as lng as no one tries to abuse it the odd item is accepted.

            99% of the ads always have a reply stating.......................`where are you based ??`
            Can this be put in as compulsory or is that too difficult to do ?
            Why not create a specific template for this ?

            Just suggestions...........

              I believe I brought this up last year. It would save the always asked question.

                3 In the case of collection only the location should be stated and be specific eg Birmingham not West Midlands.

                  I agree...........If it is not stated then the ad should be removed, it is the case if a price is not given ??

                  Interesting that the mods have not commented on this............ ( I will get my tin hat on now and wait for the short, sharp answer !! )

                      Why would you need a tin hat,youve only asked a question and made a suggestion.
                      The reason a location on a for sale is only a reccomendation and not compulsory is that not having a price led to bidding wars and vast aggrevation on the threads,not putting up a location is simply annoying but some people do not wish there location(however vague)published on an open forum,there is the option for members to put thier location on thier profile and it appears on every post but its not compulsory.
                      Location and price for that matter should only be an issue to genuinely interested parties and an issue can be resolved with a pm.
                      Hope this answers your question.
                      Regards Peter.
                      By the way it"s the mods on here who need the tin hats,we get more flak than than the RAF.

                        Hi Peter,
                        I partly agree with what you are saying regarding location , but surely if they say ` collection only` then they should state where they are ??
                        You should have no need for` tin hats `, it is a thankless job being an admin or moderator, but one that I do appreciate from a distance!
