    Default Dear moderators:

    In a Classified add, it should be reqired that one include a : location, price, and contact info.


    This is BASIC shit. If guys sellin their junk can't conform to this, then their add should be deleted. I use several other forums that enforce these basic rules. PB only enforces the 5 day bump rule. Please make the other vital info mandatory in your RULES.............

    I don't disagree on the price thing, it is very annoying and leads to a bunch of extra bumping asking for pricing. I will run it by admins. I don't see location as "as big of a deal", and contact can be had by pm. Not too many want their contact on a open forum.

    And its a week bump rule (week = 7 days in most parts of the world)

    Actually the price thing is already there and even in bold. I will discuss with admins how we should handle when no price is listed.

    the reason they leave it all out is it creates free bumps,think about it.

    It would be nice to have the location filled out in their profile under their name at the left, or at least in the ad, as it helps determine how far away someone (seller) is from the buyer when considering cost of shipping and such...

    two cents for what is is worth...

    I agree with this, all the info should be provided. I have missed out on a few deals because of having to ask for this information.
    By the time some people respond to your questions, they have sold the part to someone else.

    Also I have wanted to respond to some of the "WTB" threads that are asking for large items (i,e. heads, blocks, pump parts ) but due
    to not having a location to determine if it is worth shipping large items I pass on the opportunity to sell them.

    Just my .02

    I agree with the price and location. The seller doesn't have to put their home address, but at least knowing what city and state its in would be nice.

    On many other forums I visit, if you don't properly enter the info, your thread gets locked or deleted. I think it would be a great idea to implement that here.

    Performance Boats and I have given this some thought and discussed. This is what we are going to do because we agree needless bumping is going on.

    1. Prices will be required in all listings. Example, $1000, $1000 obo, are ok. Make offer, call for price, pm for price, or no price listed, are not ok. If you want people to bid on your stuff put it on ebay.


    2. Put city and state in all listings so people do not have to ask or guess where your item will have to ship from or where they will have to pick it up.


    3. Do not put personal information such as name, address, phone, emails in listings. This is the internet and crawlers pick this stuff up quickly and you may receive attention you didn't want.


    4. Nothing new here but bump one time every 7 days, not more often. If you are changing info in your listing and 7 days haven't passed edit your original listing.

    5. When you sell your item there is no reason to bump the thread and post "sold" or to post "sale Pending". Simply select from the "thread tools" dropdown "mark thread sold". That locks the thread and lets everyone know its sold by posting sold in the title line.


    What we will do if above is not followed?

    Initially for an introductory period of a couple weeks we will post a warning in your thread if we see it. If its not fixed in a day or so we'll lock the thread. Please do not post wtf why is my thread locked or send our moderators nasty messages. Just start another thread with the right info included and move on.

    After the first couple weeks we will post a warning in the thread. If its not fixed in a day or so the thread will get deleted.

    After a month everyone should be aware and we will delete threads that don't have this basic stuff if we see them without any warning.

    If you are bumping your thread more often then every 7 days its going to get locked. Does not matter if you delete your prior bump, a bump is a bump and we can see all of them. Anyone continually doing this will have their spam threads deleted.

    The purpose of all the above is to reduce unnecessary chatter in the spam threads so everyone can have a decent chance of selling their items. If you have a lot of items put them in no more than 2 threads. We don't want anyone dominating the spam forums with a bunch of threads taking up the first page. If I see that I will send a warning first. If not corrected they'll get deleted.

    If we have any extreme cases that just don't "get it" after awhile they will lose access to the spam forums for posting anything.

    I will add this to the spam forum rules shortly.
