Myself, nor members of my staff have anything to do with the sales that happen here, unless we are engaging as a participant.

3. Please be aware that there are scammers all over the Internet and you could be getting ripped off. Please make sure you know who you are dealing with before purchasing or selling an item. We are not responsible for any of your losses.

4. DO NOT make comments about the prices. If you feel someone is extremely price gouging, report the post to a staff member.

GR, nice to see this added, would some form of a feedback rating be possible also for sellers/buyers?

I will look into it but sounds like something way to advanced for my code writing skills.

Nice addd on GR and if it need to be a paid section so be it. Charge a membership to sell. Buying should be free.

A simple and quick solution is a feedback section within the classifieds.

This website is provided for us on someone else's dime and time. Adding a for sale or classified sections is something I'd asked for in the past.

That being said I think it a bit much to ask that it be a quasi auction/sales site with feedback and ratings for buyers and sellers. Whether simple, or complex, it does require more uncompensated time programming for something that is being shared freely and without advertisement, etc.  My point is leave it simple and see if it works.....

YMMV

I agree with keeping it simple, but a feedback section would be fairly simple and would hopefully weed out or discourage trouble makers, IF people leave and check for feedback.  Currently this forum is small enough that word-of-mouth would probably work well for any problems.  My main experience is with the S&W forum.  There is a feedback section there, but I don't get the sense that people actually use it very consistently.

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.  Now I wish I had something to sell, LOL.
Gun Control?  Oh yes, the theory that becoming a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself & your family.  Makes perfect sense.

Simple sticky for feedback. +1 or -1 and possibly -- for a neutral maybe.

Another good idea from other boards is if you have sold your item, please EDIT your Subject (Title) heading with the words SOLD.

This prevents people from wasting time opening threads, getting to the bottom and finding out the Item was sold long ago.

On Caguns.net I have 5800 posts; we use the itrader system (I have a 100% itrader rating with 64 transactions). I only mention this because when fellow members ship expensive items cross-country, a positive rating system gives a buyer or seller some confidence. We've had a few scammers, but they had no itrader rating. Something to consider in the future if the For Sale section here gets large.  :)

Be well
