Selling household items
Just wanted to say I'm disappointed to see that threads with people selling household items are being deleted. We've bought quite a few, very useful items from people on this site, as extremely reasonable prices, so I hope we are not now going to have that option banned.
The forum is all about helping members in many ways, so when we do have an odd item to sell that can be helpful for both parties, but we cannot have too many people on here just to sell items mainly for their benefit to get rid of things. This would just turn into a free advertising "for sale" forum for many people, we have to keep up with things, before it gets out of hand. Please understand this!!!

I agree with Suzer, I get slightly excited when I see a For Sale thread... surely the majority of people who post on here aren't just here to sell stuff?
So what are the qualification rules for being allowed to submit a "for sale" post?
Is there a minimum time period that you have to be member for or perhaps a minimum number of posts you have made, or perhaps a minimum number of posts that you have viewed or some other ludicrous rule.
Are there any other types of posts that new members can't submit?
If there is a "for sale" forum then allow it to be used.
If they are existing members who put into this forum for other things aswell then that is fine, the threads will stay.
For selling items there is Gumtree http://adelaide.gumtree.com.au/
Too many people are just using this forum to just sell.
This forum is to help those making the move to South Australia. -Plus related subjects.
Tell us about yourselves - share some local info - help out!!!............PLEASE!
If ya' don't put in - ya don't get out!!!!!!!
This is from the thread concerned.
I agree if the poster has only joined so that they can sell items, it should be deleted. But if the member has been on the forum for a long time then it should stay. Just my opinion.
I don't like Gumtree... at least buying things on here you sort of know the type of people you are buying from. People in the same boat who have just arrived in Adelaide, families on a low budget, waiting for shipment delivery etc etc
Anyone can join this forum you still have no idea who you are dealing with unless they have posted on here for a while!
