PHOTOS IN ADS
If your photos post sideways or upside down you need to take new photos with your phone rotated as needed so your photos post correctly. If your photos are too large they may not post. Photos that are no larger than 800 x 600 pixels will post easily on the forum. If you do not know how to re-size photos on your computer, you can use one of these online applications to re-size your photos:
http://pixlr.com/editor/ (very easy to use)
PhotoBucket.com (a site many people use which automatically re-sizes)
Batch Re-size Photos Mac OSX
PicResize.com
Re-size Photos Windows Vista
Windows XP Using the Image Re-sizer
Windows XP with MSPaint


SUBMITTING BUYER AND SELLER FEEDBACK (Feedback encourages positive transactions, creates trust and accountability.)
TRADE COUNT (+1) indicates the buying, selling, and trading experiences other members have had with any member. Remember to submit feedback after any transaction
HOW IT WORKS Click on the Trade Count (#) below any username to see feedback or to post feedback about a transaction with that member
WHAT THE NUMBER MEANS+ means there is more positive feedback than negative, - means there is more negative feedback than positive
FEEDBACK NOTIFICATION is received by pm when feedback is posted to your profile. Remember to post feedback for the other member.
NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES If members have a negative trading experience they are encouraged to work out a solution. Neither party will benefit from negative feedback on their profile.
IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE when posting feedback please use the report button so admin can remove the feedback mistake and you can make a new feedback post.

Please read the rules if you want to use the Classifieds here. Contrary to what some may think, it's not a free for all.

Thanks.

People seem to ignore the rules at times so here's a bump/refresher. Comments regarding someone's asking price are not allowed.
