No Wtb Threads Allowed

Due to the large number of WTB threads lately, I will remind you guys....

Quote:
3) WTB THREADS
Wanted or "Show me what you got" threads are no longer allowed. If you are looking for something please use the Search.
Posting of a WTB or a "i have $XXX show me what you got" type thread will result in deletion

also for all the other rule following people.... i know its very tempting but PLEASE do not post an offer in a WTB thread. it just keeps them alive for that much longer if we miss them.


EDIT: THIS IS NOT EBAY!
STOP POSTING SAYING MAKE OFFER, OR TAKING "BIDS". IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT GO TO WWW.EBAY.COM POST A PRICE OR DONT POST AT ALL

I dont know if this is where I would voice my opinion or not, but, I think WTB threads are needed. Just say I want an Entity matrix and tried to search and no one had one for sale, I guess that means I am out of luck? But If i was able to post a thread that I "WTB" an entity matrix, someone at home who has one may see my offer and be interested enough to take me up on it. Im sorry, but that WTB thread gets outrageously big, and when Im selling a gun, I wont even bother to look there to see if someone specifically is looking for the gun I'm selling, just for that reason its too much to scroll through..

i somewhat agree with that... but hey i dont make the rules.

there are responsible people that can handle it but then theres alot more kids who are just bored and want to post stuff to see some nice guns also.

Then post in the WTB section. There is one ni every forum except the everything else forum.

And youve got to be kidding me....

If your to damn lazy to look through a few replies in a thread to see if anyone wants to buy your gun then you definetly wont go through the 10 current pages of crap ni each forum. There are FAR FAR less posts in each WTB thread then there are threads in each forum.

So thats a lil bit of a load there.

Dont be a lazy ***


***EDIT***

Didnt realize you closed this.. my bad!

Rules for Buy/Sell/Trade Forums
  1. Buy/Sell/Trade here on PbNation at your own risk. We assume no responsibility for any part of any transaction. Never send money or product before a deal is agreed to by both sides and full contact information is exchanged and verified. Do not rely on PM's. If the other party is unwilling to share contact information, then don't deal with them. Please read more B/S/T tips here.
  2. If you feel that you could offer a better deal, then make a new thread in the correct forum with your ad. Never post your item in another user's thread and ruin their chances at selling their gear. Do not post negative comments about someone else's item for sale even about their price.
  3. No flaming at all. Please be polite to both the seller and potential buyers. If you dont like something being sold or the price the seller is asking, go to another thread and simply dont post in theirs. Sellers also have an obligation to be polite to users who post in the thread. If it is a scam or violates our rules, report the post and specify in detail what is improper.
  4. We recommend you always check for new and old PbN feedback as well as the Theft Report Forum before considering any deal here.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins section. Please read and follow the complete Terms of Service and the complete B/S/T Rules as well. Most B/S/T questions are answered in the PbNation FAQ.
