Default Thread removal.

Sorry, but I haved removed 2 threads because they were both not for trade items.

Please read the guidelines again or this post.

I know that sometimes it's difficult financially, but I do not want LG to be just another site where people come to offer things for sale.

Well, I see older threads offering items for sale so didn't realize it would be a problem. Sorry.

I will be deleting any and all trading threads from before 14th February 2010 this coming weekend.

Members can start new threads with items, but many threads are out-dated and many items in them are no longer available. This way it'll be easier for members to know what you really have or want.

If you started a thread and want it to stay, please let me know.

To all members,

I do realize that members often have items that they would like to sell.

It is really simple to list the items you have in HET RUILCENTER - THE TRADING CENTER and then tell people to contact you either by PM or e-mail. This is not against the rules as any and all trading/selling discussions are then between the person who is offering the items and the person interested in an item and not posted on the forum at all.

I do not see/read any PMs or emails sent between members unless they are addressed to me or the board.

I do not understand why this is so difficult as it does let members have their cake and eat it, while it helps me see which members are regular contributors to other parts of LG and those who are here just to sell to a captive audience.

I don't always catch every post or thread offering things for sale; but when I do remove them, no members should get upset when they are gone no matter where they are posted.

Even with the restrictions imposed by me in HET RUILCENTER - THE TRADING CENTER any member is free to post their e-mail address openly so that non-members/guests can contact them concerning their offerings.

An Example of what members can post and get away with.

I have
5 boxes of Schleich (aprox. 20lbs/10kgs each)
2 boxes of Playmobil parts (aprox. 10lbs/5kgs each)
1 box of misc. animals (aprox. 20lbs/10kgs)
available until 28th Feb. 2010.

If you're interested please contact me via PM.

A member can post a list of the items
Example

Until the 28th Feb. 2010 I have
1 blue dog
2 green dogs
1 purple cat
1 plastic person
1 bug-eyed creature
2 cats
available, so please contact me via PM, etc

I deleted some threads that were offering items for sale, because they did not follow the guidelines; which I have once again posted below.
