So I’m sure I could get a solicitor to knock up something to legally tie everyone in and then rule as per those restrictions? Is that what people would like? Every single sale moderated before it appears?No biggy, just referring to my understanding of current forum rules
That’d give mods an early opportunity to snap up any bargains, which I don’t have any personal beef with to be honest.So I’m sure I could get a solicitor to knock up something to legally tie everyone in and then rule as per those restrictions?

I can do that right now if that’s what people would like.
Every single person would need to legally sign to say that they certify their description is 100% accurate.That’d give mods an early opportunity to snap up any bargains, which I don’t have any personal beef with to be honest.
More that’d it could get messy pursuing someone if they breach the ‘contract’.
So - first thing is that I watered to gauge thoughts and feelings for where we should go on this - and with the poll currently 92% vs 7% then that tells me what I need to know as to the way forwards.@Paul - isnt the most sensible thing to do is LEAVE IT AS IT IS! It works fine. Maybe one add in 100 is problematic. In that case the site ops should delete the thread or close it, or remove offending articles.
The PinballBaz thing is just a flash in the pan - he was in and out the forum in a couple of days.
A game is worth the amount someone wants to pay for it !
Flipping a game is not illegal, but we know on here 'its not the done thing'.
We have an ebay/gumtree thread that people can always say 'thats my old one - robbing git has added £2K on it'
Just my two cents mate !
@Paul - ready for any more valves????
A lot of threads go off topic very quickly, with just 1 comment starting it all. This TWD and Prodigy being a fine example, or the Rolling Stones for sale thread which spawned this whole topic.My 2 pence on this topic now I have some time.
Take the last machine I was looking at the walking dead le .Good machine looks fine price fine yet over 2 pages to to sift through and about stuff that should not be on a sales add I don't care for prodigy or links to them. The same thread saying twd is going to drop because the show tanked and buy a iron maiden lol wtf that's not price policing thats stocks and shares.
It's only one of loads of useless comments I think if you put a for sale add up and pics are fine and it's described right then is up to the buyer to ask in the how much is it worth thread or do some research on prices and not destroy someone's sale and it is the same few doing it .the fix for that is a warning them when they post and a 3warning gets you a short ban followed by goodbye ban.
Agree both counts Paul. I think it should be just general politeness to not suck ones teeth or slate another’s add or talk too long on the add. I think we all have a duty of care to not do this and remind others off bad manners when they do it. I think pretty much what it is today.It's a tricky one.
I have 2 bugbears
Firstly - members with no horse in the race throwing in their price opinion based on their personal dislike of a title. We all like different games, different people will pay different prices for a particular title - it is their choice. We all enjoy voicing our opinions, just don't do it on other members sale threads.
Secondly - once a price discussion starts it can very quickly spiral to all sorts of off topic nonsense. Annoying for the seller.

what if i report my own post?Is there a forum definition of when to use the Report button?
I assume that button escalates the post to an administrator.
Never used it myself, but it could save a few extra pointless & unhelpful comments in a For Sale thread by simply reporting bad practices.
