PLEASE DO NOT MAKE YOUR THREAD SUBJECT LINE READ "SOLD" ONLY
« on: November 20, 2013, 02:59:22 pm »
Please leave your header intact and simply add "SOLD" to it.  If you would like your thread removed for some reason, please let me know and I will likely accommodate you.  However, simply because an item has sold is not reason to make the thread of no value.  It retains value as long as the heading is in place.  Folks can see who bought what or how much it sold for or they may go searching for something that was for sale recently and suddenly they cannot find it.  Marking the thread as simply "SOLD" undoes most intrinsic value the thread may still have.

No thread should be removed from the Emporium until a sale is complete and both parties are content.  Sometimes the information from these threads are required for arbitration, mediation, or consolation.  Please! Please! Please, leave your thread AND subject line intact.  If the thread truly has zero merit, I will remove it.  If its purpose is served and the item sold is in the buyer's hands and all is well, ask me and I will remove it if you really want me to.  Otherwise, an old, seemingly worthless thread can be helpful to someone selling or buying later, down the road.

Thanks Yall!

Rev, how do I post a classified for selling my 14 on the Emporium?  I'm having trouble navigating site to guide me on posting instructions.

Hey Mike,
Posting an ad is the same as posting in the thread you did post in except you create and name the thread too..
Click on the C-14 Emporium section and then click the "NEW TOPIC" button.  You will get a new window that will look like the other one you posted in except the SUBJECT line will be blank.  That's where you name your thread like 2008 C-14 FOR SALE $250! CHEAP BUT BEAUTIFUL. And then fill in the copy area and add pix if you want to.  THe BEST way to add pix is to put them up on Photobucket and then link to them. Or you can add them directly, but they have to be sized appropriately for that to work.  Photobucket is best.  If you need more help let me know and I'll help you get it up. 
Blessings,
Chuck ~ Rev

And how does one edit their first posts so the title can be marked as sold?

If one of the mods would be so kind as edit the title and mark it as sold I would appreciate it.

Despite your emoticon and the likelihood you are only teasing, I'll just say, "Nearly every post in the Emporium has relevance and continuing value LOOOONNNNNNGGG after the sale."

So it is a rare thing that I will delete Emporium threads, even if the OP requests it.  Carry on.

That's been the policy, to not delete emporium posts.

And the best way to get your post marked sold (or to edit a post past the time limit) is to hit the 'Report to Moderator' link. That way anyone who has moderator or admin status will see it, in fact it sends out a notice e-mail.

I'm trying to mark my item as sold but I'm not seeing anywhere to edit my first post. I'll let me quote or create a new post but not seeing an edit. Am I missing something?

There is a time limit on how long any post can be edited. It is a reasonable amount of time like 30 days. After that only a mod or admin can edit it. There is a post a few up from WillyP that explains this...


And the best way to get your post marked sold (or to edit a post past the time limit) is to hit the 'Report to Moderator' link. That way anyone who has moderator or admin status will see it, in fact it sends out a notice e-mail.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."
