Photobucket/CMB Threads - If everything is priced out, these threads can be posted in the normal B/S/T area.

exact wording... IF EVERYTHING IS PRICED OUT, THESE THREADS CAN BE POSTED IN THE NORMAL B/S/T AREA.

all my baseball is priced out so WTF?????

Take a chill pill, if you followed the rules it was probably a mistake given your first couple threads.

It wasnt a mistake. You did not provide any pricing in the thread. Therefor per the forum b/s/t rules the thread should be deleted as all cards listed for sale must be priced in the thread or they will be deleted. Instead of deleting it was moved it to the photobucket area which does not require pricing. Since you only provided your photobucket link that seems like a more fitting area for this

Not sure if you saw this or not but I did leave a note in this thread: over 300 cards fs/ft

The other threads have been moved as well for the same reason. I would also recommend reading the B/S/T rules as your very very close to duplicate threads given your only linking your photobucket (I didnt combine or delete due to you having a different link in them) but the rest is pretty much copy/paste and I'm sure others can tell you we will delete if they are to similar.

Reposting the threads is a violation of the thread bumping rules so I highly recommend against that. Any additional issues please feel free to contact me directly as without a reported post typically any posts to "mods/admin" are likely not seen and its best to contact us directly.

Id say one of two reasons.

If your selling you should be setting your price. This elimiates the seller being taken on a deal. If you failed to check market values or opted to undersell on a card for what ever reason that fault should not fall on the buyer. Thought process behind this is also to try and save time on transactions. Doesnt mean you cant still send or post an offer to the seller, but our hopes were to cut down on some of the posts needed to make a deal.

To this point while the rules do state post your buying prices, its never been enforced that way. Much like speeding, you can be 2 mph over and get a ticket (trust me I know), but the majority of the time they're not going to ticket for that, but they can. I can tell you 99.99% of the reported violations between the two are for sellers failing to list their prices.

What about "for trade" threads that clearly mention that the card(s) are also for sale but no prices are listed? I see those all the time.

There are no prices in the thread. Instead of posting a link to pictures with prices, post the actual pictures with prices and you'll be good to go.

Not that hard to fix.

It is clearly stated in the rules that you either did not read or do not understand. By your reaction to being told what the rules are, I am going to venture a guess by saying you will not be here long.

Ill pay to see this thread moved to the spam section.

Or is that considered bribery an Im fixing to get reported?

Quote:
Include a price for each item in the first post of your thread (Buying or Selling). If you're buying or selling, please POST A PRICE! Failure to do so will result in the thread being deleted. Prices must be posted for every item that is for sale; if you are selling a lot, only a lot price is necessary but if you start to sell individual items, then individual prices are required. Pictures are always helpful too. We want to avoid situations where things are misleading or not clear...we want all B/S/T threads to be as clear and concise as possible. Outrageous and unreasonable prices may result in your thread being deleted; it is the same as not posting a price at all. If you want to run an auction, please list on eBay.
We have a section for posting your photobucket links and/or spamming ebay auctions, so not sure really where more detail is needed for the sport specific areas. Your thread clearly as posted belong in the photobucket area and not the sport specifc area.

If you post FS/FT in your thread title, I better see prices, of per forum rules you risk it being deleted. If its for trade only then dont put FS in your title (not saying you but more a general comment). If your trading and start actively selling in a trade thread you need to post prices, just as you should be if your breaking up a lot. To avoid confusion on this part I've tried to tell guys just PM someone if they're asking for a price. This way you've taken it off the thread and there shouldnt be any confusion as to weither or not your actively selling.

For me personally you dont have to list every single card but you had best make an effort to highlight and post some of the cards in the thread. Copying and posting just a photobucket link and/or 1-2 cards will get it moved to the photobucket area or deleted. I've told other guys to generally like 6-10, maybe 12 cards, price them, and put at the bottom of their post most cards priced in your photobucket and post the link. This way your not highlighting your photobucket area and still making a solid effort to comply with the forum rules.

I didnt make the rules that was blowout, and given they run the site, I'm just in charge of enforcing whats here.

I have a bunch of cards for sale too. Their prices can be found in the eBay completed sales. I will link each pic to those completed sales.

I'm going to be honest, if your post does not have prices, I'm just deleting it.

Every b/s/t section has a link to the rules. At the top of every page there is a forum rules tab with a link to the b/s/t rules.

The b/s/t sections are so large, that a legitimate thread last less than an hour on the first page - sometimes less than 15 minutes during peak traffic times. It is not fair to everyone who follows the rules for an inconsiderate op to share the front page.

So, bumps, no prices, duplicate threads, vague threads... they all get deleted by me.

The other mods are much nicer and will usually send a pm or move the thread or ask you to post prices...

If you are new to a forum, try to read their rules before going on the offensive.

Why was my thread deleted?

General Rules and Guidelines for Buy/Sell/Trade - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING IN B/S/T

This is one of the rules that should be reevaluated. If I have a card on the blocks I might not have a price or list of other cards I will trade directly for. I might want to gauge the market. This rule needs to be revoked.

I don't sell or buy here, so it doesn't affect me, but I've always thought it a peculiar requirement.
