OK I'm probably going to make some enemies here, but stuff it... I'm wondering if we perhaps need some sort of guideline for the buying and selling of goods on this forum.
This is all opinion, and since we are a user-driven "community" how about some discussion...
I would like to see the end of sales of goods on this forum for 99% of the seller's idea of the market value. The following are examples of the kind of sales I'd prefer to see:
- Free to good home
- For the cost of postage
- Mail pong a photo of the part in use
There are plenty of places you can sell stuff for market value- eg Ebay. If it doesn't sell there for what you are asking- perhaps you are asking too much, and this is NOT the place to be duping people into spending more than they need to. Here is the place to put back into circulation items you no longer need, that someone else might have a use for, and that you do not necessarily want to make any money on. Here is the place we should be helping people to complete their bikes so that they can be ridden.
I may be alone - but let's discuss... no?
