to my mind and how i read the rules to chat in the forums about a part or car you want you need an ad in the wanted section
to aim the questions at /through ?
kind of like
" i need a new near side motor mount for my ascona for contact details please see my ad in the parts wanted section "
and maybe a link to it :veryhappy
the big thing is this was brought in at the request of members who had a big problem with a parts deal done in the performance forum and they wanted some way to rate a seller or buyer so other members could see if they should do deals with a person (obviously they wanted to be able to leave a big -ve feed back )
now we could of just let the site run as it was as the deal was nothing to do with the site but was members doing a private deal
when the dodo hit the air mover we ended up with members leaving because they looked to think that some super dooper deal was about to be done and they could not get into the deal (a big misinterpritation of what realy happened )
we lost a mod again, we have a bunch of folks who think the moderators were protecting said seller and looked to cause mayhem where ever they could which is far from the truth
post #13 refers to things like the cnc air filters where a rough number is needed to see if a batch run is economicl then a price can be worked out and placed in the ads forum not an "I need a " type of deal that you will have to use
as such we are real sorry but there are no exeptions that i know of where a deal or sale can be done or started on the general forums unless they first have an ad to ref to , so no technicality ,no i needs and no arguments
this stands for me until i am told otherwise by the big boss or i am no longer doing the job because of health or time restraints on my part
PS still no ad and there is a time limit i work to of 24 hours before i delete the reference now , i used to just delete and PM but i think i must be getting soft in my old age
