I know we're all pretty laid back and all, but.......

Not to be a dick or anything (yea yea yeah, I know) but just a general reminder: Per the Flea Market rules http://www.advrider.com/forums/announcement.php?f=14 :
"The Flea Market is about buying and selling stuff. Don't tease us with 'Feeler Ads'. All ads need a Price and location (city/state). If you want to find out what your stuff might be worth, ask the question in the related forum, not the Flea Market."

Fewer questions and more selling. Just saying.
Dave

I am not sure that Flea Market rules should be the same for our Regional Flea Market. We are more of a community here. I would rather not get bogged down with rules meant to keep the masses inline.

How about this. Mods should mod and posters should post.

If you look at my post you will see that I edited it. I forgot to put where I'm located so folks would know. I think UncleDirt was just letting me know.

Why not put a price up?

Well, yeah posters vs mods....I thought about hitting the blame maddbrit button, but thought, gee, not really worth getting a mod involved. So, sorry, I just thought that as adults we could moderate ourselves. What was I thinking.

You're right, who am I to complain.... oh wait, yeah I'm a user here and thought that a SLIGHT (read: really really really small) tweak might help sellers move product more quickly. Perhaps those of you who are not on a budget believe in the old axiom that if you have to ask what it costs, you can't afford it. But those of us on a budget (who don't really have much disposable income to play with) would like to know if what we are interested in, is actually within our budget. And darn if alot of pm's don't go unanswered for a few days.

As for rulez? You don't think that the FM rules apply here. Okay, you guys have been around for alot longer than I have, I'll have to defer to you on that. Does that mean I CAN list my shotgun for sale here? Cool!

And as for what Questions you CAN ask? Oh my. It was directed to the SELLER, not you. Meaning that the more information a seller includes will result in fewer questions for the SELLER to answer, and thus be more effective in getting to their target group, and actually being successful. You know, like "more meat, less filler" kind of thing. As in, less questions for the SELLER to answer and more SELLING for the SELLER. Again, not directed at you, the browser or buyer.

And finally: Why not list the selling price of an item? Don't you want to sell something as quick as possible when you put it up for sale?

So that this all doesn't end up in JM, this is the only response on this subject that I'm going to post. Hope you all didn't hurt yourself when your knees jerked.

mommer, you're right. I felt attacked for addressing something that irritates the crap out of me. It still does. But I over reacted and I apologize to all you FF's out there.

Life's too short and I've been too stressed lately. What I said about a price being a really good idea still applies, but I should have just let it go. Sorry, my bad.....

Neduro - disregard my email. Baaaad week. Mea Culpa, mea fricking culpa.

One more thing......

Just so everbody knows, even when I am and arguing, I will still give up a days work, pull my camper shell off, and drive 100 miles to help any one of you out of a jam. I'll still disagree with you maybe, but I will have the good sense to drop the BS long enough to get you safe, warm, fed and dry.

Uncle dirt-no worries. Rules are a funny thing. No matter how weird they are (guns/no guns etc), people are generally inclined to follow them. I respect you for piping up and pointing out the rules.

For me, I am glad there is a rockies only FM. Heck, I often wonder where ADV where would be with no rockies section?

No worries-grab a beer and peruse others cast off items.

:)
