Not in accordance with the extrememly well publicized rules here. No one posted, I'll take it." Nor is there any mention of an off-site sale.mdsu16 said:
What happened?1... If you are listing your item locally or elsewhere, state that in your thread so that readers may take that into consideration.
2. In a given For Sale thread, the first posted, "I'll take it" (or words to that effect) has priority...
3. If you are seeking additional information, making an offer, etc, post "PM or Email sent". However, this does not secure a place in line nor guarantee that you have bought anything. For that, you must post, "I'll take it", in the thread. At any time, an "I'll take it" posted in the thread trumps any non-specific post such as "PM Sent"...
Thanks. Then Supergeek should have posted, I'll take it," in the thread, when the deal was struck. As it stands now, anyone posting that (still) would techincally have priority over him. This could have caused a problem, especially since more than a week has passed since he PMed.mdsu16 said:Supergeek sent a pm, I accepted his offer.
As the rules say, posting PM sent guarantees nothing. That can always be someone just asking a routine question. Only an "I'll take it" guarantees anything, and we still haven't seen one. And as the seller, you have the primary responsibility for dealing only with members who follow the rules, and supergeek did not do that. But thanks for the explanation.mdsu16 said:No off site sale...Supergeek was 1st response, so
priority was given, per forum rules.
