Important!

To all Members who use the 'For Sale' Section.

 Please no matter whether it's a car your selling, wheels or any parts.
If it has been sold, can you go to the title and just change it to read 'SOLD'!  :thumbs:  

That way us Moderators can easily identify which posts can be 'Archived' out the way of living posts.

Firstly, it will save you time replying to emails or if they phone you just to tell people it has sold.  :thumbs:

Secondly, it saves Members wasting their time reading through endless posts to eventually find out the item has been sold.  :thumbs:

Thirdly,  it saves us Moderators doing point two above but in there 100's if not 1000's.  :thumbs:

To be honest, we have enough to do as it is and we don't want to be wasting lots of time on this great website playing detectives trying to root out unneeded posts.

We like all the members would much rather spend our time enjoying and taking a more active part on the Forum.
After all, we all have MK1's!

Thanks for reading this post and if you have any items that have been sold, please go back to them and change the title so we can move them!  :thumbs:


Your Moderator Team.  :)

Well I think I archived around 50 posts last week but that's a bit like standing on Blackpool beach, grabbing a handful of dry sand and chucking it into an empty skip but it's a start!

Please do go back over you old items you were selling and if you haven't done it, change the title to sold.

To do that go to the first page of the the advert.
Scoll down to the bottom of that page and click 'Edit'.
Then all you do is replace the title with the word "SOLD" and click 'Save'.

And over time we Mod's can do the rest!  :thumbs:

Time to bring this post back to the top of the pile.
Are you flicking through posts, wondering what to do next, check this out?

If you've SOLD anything in the last 18 months, please just double check you've done the following.
(not in the 'Cars for Sale' section)

Go to the first original post of your item or items and click 'Edit'.
Change the title simply to "SOLD' and click save.

If you had multiple items do the following.
Add a new 'Comment' and just list whats left from the list.
(you just might find a buyer for what's left)

That way when the 'Moderator Team' go fishing through 1,000's and 1,000's of posts and comments from the 29,000+ Members in the 'For Sale' sections.
We've got half a chance of finding and moving the 'SOLD' items and in doing so, cleaning up 'OUR' database making the website and the search engine perform even faster!  :thumbs:

Thanks for taking a few minutes to do this and to save us Mod's many Hours!  :ocf_emoticons__eusa_clap:

Please, please when the item is sold just 'Edit' the 'Title' to "SOLD!", simple as that and we will do the rest.  :thumbs:

This is an official 'Moderator Team' bump!  :lol: 

We are seeing recently a fair few for sale posts where the location, price or both have been forgotten. 

We must have both to meet the Club Rules, if not (which it says clearly in the rules)  the post will be removed.

We do not want to do it as it takes time and your losing out as well with less exposure time to sell the item. 
Missing potential buyers! 

So if you're not sure what is allowed, then just check the rules and save us all time and effort please.

Two points here you all need to be aware of please.

I've had to chase a few Members for not following the Club Rules on several matters when it comes to posting in the 'Classified' section.

Some New and older Members seem to be forgetting we must have a "price & location" and not just one or the other and often neither when it comes to selling items!


Back to this old chestnut and changing the 'Title' just to say "SOLD!".
I'd say 80% of items that have been sold on the forum the Members just don't bother to do this.
It's only takes you a few seconds to do it and saves us Mod's a hell of a lot of time doing it for you!

Again, once it's "SOLD!" (good for you) but please go to your first entry on the post.
Just below your signature (if you have one) there's a number of blue buttons, one of which reads 'Edit'.
Click on that and change the whole title to "SOLD!".

Job done and us Mod's will do the rest and archive the post leaving the living ones out there and saving everybody grief chasing an item, waiting sometimes days for a reply just to find out it has been sold.   :(

Get my point!  :thumbs:

Well the message doesn't seem to be getting through does it, come on people please!

I for one have spend around 2 hours this week alone asking you all to firstly READ the Club Rules on Selling Items.

Secondly, chasing you down to do what is required of you to meet the minimum requirements.

We Mod's don't want to scupper the chance of you selling items and in the same vain helping others but please follow the RULES.
(we do not want to delete your post)

At least a description of the item and most important of all a location and a price please!  :thumbs:

Please remember to look at at the Club Rules when selling items. 

Just takes a moment or two and will save you, the potential buyer and us Mod's a great deal more.  :thumbs:

The Mod's will remove any item if it or the information in the post does not conform to the rules. 

We are a bit like the Liverpool defence in the 80's, very firm but fair!   :lol:
