I made this account 3 years ago to sell two of my lasers, due to some extreme crap going on back then I had to sell them off. I made the account, sold the lasers, and was gone again for a while :D

Sometimes, it can be done. A set in stone rule like that is not so much a good idea I think.

You live in New York? I find that hard to believe, either that or English is not you're first language. Your grammar is wrong, it should be something like "I got it!" or "I read them"

Even then if you had the "LPF etiquette," you would know that that post was entirely pointless and therefore frowned upon. Although it is funny, and therefore is not entirely useless, but ti was not meant to be funny, therefore you fail!

Please don't get all mad at me over MY grammar, I know mines sucks!!

This is from another forum I'm apart off, AVForums.com Home. They have a really good selection or rules for their buying/selling section, they could be quite handy to use here if we picked through them and tweaked a few:

Price Comparisons

* Only new prices sold directly by recognised retailers or similar trades here on AVForums are valid for price comparisons.
* Any price comparisons you make must be validated with a direct link (strongly recommended) or be easy to verify and include the name of the website and must include all postal charges.
* Where the price is instore and not on the web, then don't post it unless you can verify it, e.g. with a link to a bargain discussion thread or photograph.


The following are examples of prohibited sources for price comparisons:

* eBay or any other auction site (Any listing type)
* Amazon Marketplace
* PlayTrade



Bumping Etiquette

The classifieds can sometimes be fast moving. As a result threads can disappear from the coveted front page and the occasional bump is required to get them back up again. To ensure that there is a level playing field for all and to avoid excessive bumping and anyone hogging the limelight, the following rules on posting in the thread must be followed:

First and Foremost:

* PM and email may not be used at anytime in a live sale. All discussions including offers, acceptances and refusals should be shown clearly in the thread. Once a sale is complete you may use whatever form of external communication you like to finalise payment details etc. Your general geographical location and detailed specifications of equipment are not considered to be valid reasons for using off thread communications. It is the responsibility of both the vendor and the purchaser to ensure that all negotiations are conducted in the thread. We insist on this rule because we need to see all the negotiations to be able to mediate a solution to a dispute.



The following types of posts will be considered "Bumping"

"More added"
"Prices reduced"
"Back to the top"
"Any offers"

*"payment sent"
*"payment received"
*"Item sent"
*"feedback left"

* These type of messages should be communicated using PM's or the iTrader system.

You may only "bump" if the most recent post in your thread is at least 10 hours old.

For clarification: All discussions including offers, acceptances and refusals must be shown clearly in the thread. If you are in any doubt, then please post in the thread, not via private communications.

Frequent archiving and starting new threads to circumvent the above bumping rules is also prohibited.
If you need the thread title changed, then please request using the Red Warning Triangle report post button.

P.S. You can see which posts of yours have been edited/deleted by clicking "Control Panel" near the top of the forum.

Please use the Red Triangle if you see any rule breaking or have any problems concerning your own thread.

...don't entitle threads with generic and not self-explanatory phrases like "please read", "little question", and so on :)
