MUST Post A Price!
« on: December 05, 2011, 07:07:21 AM »
If you put something in the Classifieds, you should be required to post a price.  VERY annoying to me to cruise the Classifieds and see something interesting but without a price.

I like seeing prices posted too, but nobody can require that a poster include anything. A moderator might occasionally drop in and remove a post for some reason, but never beacause a price is not shown.

Every other forum I frequent requires you to post an asking price and references.

Usually when a price is not posted it's because the seller would be asking higher than market value and knows it!

It's a waste of time and shows the seller isn't that serious about selling. Like maybe they're on the fence about parting with it or doing the market research to estimate it's value and price it according to their level of motivation.

Stone those gutless teasers.

They don't deserve to live.

They certainly can require you to post a price.  Check out the rules for posting in the classifieds at Acoustic Guitar Forum.  Not only that, but they require a paid membership OR you can pay $5 and THEN you can post but for 30 days only.

I thought we were talking about this forum. But I'm still right - nobody can require a poster to include a price in a message, not even the moderators here or elsewhere. The most they can do is delete the post afterwards -- there is a difference -- and our moderators will not do that.
