Default Sales format in B/S/T section.

Just a short rant...Can we please make a few requirements in BST section when posting things for sale.

#1. $ BEFORE the number unless you are french canadian.
#2. Prices after the scan so you don't need to scroll up after seeing the cards then scroll back down.
#3. Is it possible to use spell check?

Thanks

Don't get me started on rants.

What's the point of posting a "whos up for a sales thread", having 15 people chime in "me!!!!" and then waiting 30 minutes to post? JUST POST!

How about backing up and addressing the titles of threads?

"Oakland A's prospects and rookies" is not a thread title.

Start the title with FS, FT, WTTF, WTB, etc... then simply state what you are wanting to sell, buy or trade.

Jeff, it's just a ploy to keep the OP's thread at the top of the page. People that do this are skirting the rules of a 24 hour bump.

And unprofessional. I usually don't buy from people who format the sales thread poorly.

Community should try and all do stuff the same way...I know its a wild wild wish but maybe people will want to all work better together.

Go for it. I created my sales thread in a simple format to get buyers that are looking in a certain price point. If something new comes in I list it once then add it to the appropriate thread.

You could be paying in Rubies, Yen, or Peso's. For me given this is a US site, I assume (yes assume) payment is in US dollars unless otherwise stated.

If you check the rules it actually states prices first and at the top of the thread. Why - so if there are no prices I dont have to go hunting to find it. Makes it much easier on the mods for those that dont care to read or follow the rules. If anything call it a little favorable moderator input if you will. That being said I've yet to see us delete a thread for putting prices at the top, bottom, middle, left, right of any image. As long as they're there I dont care, maybe one of the moderators do - but until all the other rules are followed price placement will likely not be enforced.

As for # 3...I'd be happy with proper grammar I can read easily. Punctuation is what is it, and I'm just as guilty as others for not using the apostrophe and or missing a period or comma here or there. I'm not a Most typo's (which I'm guilty of and are most others) we can easily look over. However given this is a forum - keep in mind what and how you type is you will be perceived. Doesn't matter how old or young you are, or your gender or color. Its how you type and then if your making deals how you carry yourself during those. Good communication, proper and timely shipping, you could be 5 years old and not one member would care and you'd quickly be a welcomed addition to the site.

This was posted in the baseball section b/c it was a personal preference kind of rant that just makes life easier. Not asking any mods to make any rules or even consider closing a thread for any of these reasons. I just feel like people (mostly of the younger variety) are learning nothing in school these days and it's proven by their terrible grammar, spelling, and even how they use the $ sign. Of course we know the transactions are in US Dollars but it's just really annoying to read. I know there was something about this earlier where in Canada the French Canadians put the symbol after the #, which is why I referenced them.
