If we could post the location for posts at the end of the title such as 'WTS ak47 - Henderson' or 'WTB [insert random antique handgun here] - Reno' That'd be pretty amazeballs. Seems 95% of the forum lives in Vegas or henderson and fairly certain I won't go there in a long time. Once in a blue moon the Reno post comes and I get happy lol. All these posts of firearms I'm totally interested in and turns out they're all the way in Vegas / Henderson just makes me sad :reaction:

Why does the OP go back and change the title to sold and clear out the OP? Why not just amend the title with SOLD as a prefix and ask it to be locked? The rest of the thread with comments and questions just look crappy now.

They don't have to state who they sold it to. This isn't my first rodeo on forums. It looks messy and unorganized when there are a bunch of threads that are titled SOLD. If I were doing a search on the site to try to get an idea of a previous asking prices the threads are all jacked up.

Making your thread to the top. Basically you can type anything like bump, back to the top, weekend bump, up up please and etc.. and the thread will go to the top.[/QUOTE
I always wondered what "bump" meant and how to move my posting back on top.
Thanks.

You can tell him PM sent. But if you don't say '"I'll take it", you stand a chance of losing out.

is there a thread on how to attach pics to a post in case i post something for sale....
Press the 'Insert Image' button from the top menu of the posting box (looks like two mountains and a sun inside a rectangle, located between the chain and the smiley face), from there you can either link to an image, or upload your own image.

As a seller, how do I send a PM (=Private Message?), to a buyer who has replied "I'll take it" and how is a PM reply from the buyer received,
both of which seem like the right way to agree on the details of the sale. Would I just indicate PM at the start of my reply, since I don't see a link
for it? I do understand that I should post 'Sold or SPF' and to whom sold if I accept a buyer's offer.

You could keep a private party transaction private and just post Sold or SPF. Leaving feedback is the best way to acknowledge a good, or bad, transaction.
