All Items for Sale MUST Have a Listed Price!!!!!!!
Just a reminder, that any item listed for sale here MUST have a listed price. It is clearly stated in the "rules for posting" topic at the top of the forum, but due to the high amount of listings without them, I thought this reminder was necessary. We will also just pull these ads without explanation because it is tiring to repeated explain why a post was pulled when it says so right in the rules. So that all know the reasoning why, he is how this rule came into effect.
I will use just this one example. A couple of years back, a canoe was listed here with "make offer" in the post. A member replied with, "I'll give you $250 for it" the seller said OK. PM's were exchanged and it was agreed that the buyer would pick the canoe up that Saturday morning at 10 am. A day or so later, another member see's the add and the offer, pm's the seller and says "I'll give you $300 for it" Seller asks when he could pick it up, buyer says tonight (Friday night). Seller tells him go come get it. Now if this was not bad enough, the seller doesn't even bother to tell the original buyer he had sold it. Instead, the buyer drives to his house Saturday morning... and no one is home. Seller doesn't return pms so buyer posts in the original thread about his wasted trip and why no response at which point the OTHER buyers posts that he had bought the thing Friday night! Well lets just say things got ugly, feeling were hurt, the seller is no longer on CLF etc. etc. etc.
Since then we have had two similar instances, so we modified the rules to require a price on every item. If you want an auction, go to eBay otherwise please list a price with your item. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation... CLF
PS. It is perfectly fine to Give something away, so in that case no price would be needed!
