Effective immediately, all "for sale" listings MUST include a [LOCATION] in the BEGINNING of the subject. Any non-conforming post will be deleted on sight and without warning!


The location must be enclosed in [square brackets] and it must be at the beginning of the subject. For items that are shippable and where location is not especially relevant, it is acceptable to put [SHIP] or [SHIP Country]. For items that you are looking to buy and which are likely shippable, you may put [WTB] with no location.

Acceptable formats for a title:

[LOCATION] Item for sale
[SHIP] Item for sale
[SHIP US] Item for sale
[SHIP UK] Item for sale
[WTB] Item wanted
[WTB State] Item Wanted
[WTB Country] Item Wanted

Any post not conforming to this format will be deleted on sight, no exceptions.

"Bump" for those who may have marked this as read, but not read it or understood it.

And yet again. Why oh why do folk who've been members for YEARS not understood this - and NEWBIES - why the F&*^() don't you read the posting guidelines?

I'm getting fed up with deleting the recent spate of For Sale posts on this section that don't have the [Location] in the title.

From now on, the blind or arrogant posters who continue to do this may just get a time-out as well as having their post deleted. Moderators have to waste their time cleaning up - so the errant posters can some extra RL time to themselves as well.
