    For Sale banter

    OK in the past and recently we have kind of tolerated a bit of banter in the classifieds despite the rules outlining the official "accepted reply " types ... as mods we really don't want to be monitoring every post and making sure people are doing the right thing .. there has to be an amount of people taking responsibility for their actions themselves ...

    So pointing out politely something about a sale is fine , asking questions is fine , a little bit of "humour" is fine ... but what is NOT ok is people spreading crap thru threads and escalation of aggression and confrontation ...

    Please as a valued member of AVF take the time to consider if your input is needed, and if it is , just HOW that input is delivered ....

    Pointing out that www.ihaveavapeshop.com has a product at $x price, although not necessary is ok , but pointing out the seller is a scum sucking pig is not ...

    It is NOT anyones mission in life to be the Classifieds Sheriff ! ( apart from a mod) ... We do appreciate the forum self regulating , but ONLY when it is polite and informative ... trolling posts designed to escalate and aggravate a situation are a waste of everyones time and are off-putting for those who actually want to buy sell and trade .

    Hi FM. have you removed that post from the forum? I was about to make an offer. But things were getting out of control.

    Any chance we can have a minimum posts rule and/or identify and remove those blowins who simply visit here to sell things and try and monetize the community?

    I'm extremely happy to see this, particularly mentions of people playing "FS Section Sherrif".

    I will report anyone I see noncompliant with these new rules..

    There's a bit of a problem with that.

    Firstly, unfortunately the mods don't have the access to make it a requirement (nor the authority as that's a Jato call)

    Secondly, there's probably an equal number of members that would rather have additional items up for sale regardless of the seller's post count, as there are those that want a minimum post count for the classies.

    If all members felt strongly about a minimum post count, then it can be made effective purely by ignoring the sales of those with hardly any posts. People will soon get the message if noone will deal with them as they are not active enough members.

    Dont be overthinking

    someone politely asking a newb to make an intro post, or guiding them thru the vagaries of AVF isnt playing sherrif , they are doing their bit as a community member ... just every now and then we get the gruff one that can butt hurt sensitive internet bottoms and AWAAAAAAY we go ...

    So lets minimise the butthurt prompting and get back to the welcoming nice side , even tho its a pain in the arse to remind people over and over .

    In short a Mod decides who is doing sherrifing etc , but dont be upset if we dont turn into trained monkeys at anyones bidding lol

    Also, in a recent poll, < 3% of the active membership wanted this, ~ 5% didn't want it, and > 90% didn't care enough to respond to the poll.

    @gtadmin @giruvian

    After a brief message from a certain man of comfy sized proportions, i was made aware that you guys dont have the functionality to enact this in any event, as its outside your purview.

    Sorry for the extra work explaining here

    So why is the crap not deleted and the thread cleaned up?

    I have reported the crap in my thread and it's still there. I can also see it in other threads.
