I should have explained myself better. Part of the draw of this and other forums is the ability to buy and/or sell parts. With other boards I've always donated a portion of my first sale. Now the option to sell before donating is no longer available on volvospeed. It seems to me that Classified sections are a good way to attract new members. Now if somebody asks about finding a part, my answer will still include Brickboard, Craigslist, IPD, Turbobricks, etc., but it won't include Volvospeed any longer. By cutting off access it I think that there will be fewer new members attracted to the site. So that's why I called it weak. maybe the reason for this change is explained somewhere and I just haven't searched for it. Plan_B, what are you, 3? My 6 year old has better responses than yours.

Its totally free and the reason why the for sale section is being phased out. For sale going away has nothing to do with revenue.

You can turn them off though for free. Go read the other announcement

Yeah, not a fan of the auctions myself. I'd rather purchase or sell things without getting into a bidding war. But thanks for the info. What exactly does the auction feature have to do with limiting access to the for sale section? Or is for sale going away completely for all members?

For sale will go away once I have a new system in place with the auctions. With the auctions to avoid bidding you can make it a buy it now only. But shortly the auctions will have a traditional classifieds system.

b4_ford had a good point about the classified section being an initial draw for this forum. It was for me. I had bought an 850 and knew I had to come here for used parts. It's that way for a lot of forums. If the auctions section will soon have regular classifieds, let's make them as accessible as possible, for the sake of new members.

I like the "For Sale" section and would always look for what was for sale and have bought several items through the ads on there. If you are looking for a "For Sale" section try volvoforums.com. The have one and it's been getting a little more popular.

Does banned mean no access at all? So far it looks like HtownTurboBrick ripped me off, but I'd at least like him to be able to respond to PMs which he does once in a blue moon. If he had a personal email available that would be cool, but he doesn't have one listed. I don't get why he does ok with like 30 people and then takes my money and runs. He gave me a story about how they shipped the wires to the wrong address and got them returned and promised to send them out again, but that was over a month ago.

I can deal with a few days, but this has been going on for months now.

his email that is listed w/ us is aznrep84@yahoo.com

You just gonna give out peoples email addresses? Im not very sure, but I don’t remember Inlineturbo asking for his email (I believe he just said that he doesn’t have an email listed), and second I don’t remember Inlineturbo asking that the board should see his email. And 3rd I didn’t see HtownTurboBricks profile having his email address set for everyone to see. Now maybe a pm was sent to you asking for an email and im wrong about that, but I don’t feel its right to give out his information for the rest of the board to see. Or maybe you sent HtownTurboBrick a pm/email asking him if it was fine to tell everyone else his email?

If someone posts a comment that I said sold them some parts and didn’t ship, are you gonna give out my email? Is my subscriber information, including how I paid for it, safe?

My credit card gonna be posted, my name, address, social security number?

Now you could have just listed a fake email and the above doesn’t apply but it does seem like you listed the real deal to me.

Its like a hippy. It only counts as half an email address and it smells kinda funny
