Do you want to collapse a few sections?

Unread post by Roger » Fri Jun 07, 2019 11:49 am

A few weeks ago we posted an appeal for our community members to post in the relevant forums that we have at our disposal. We left that post in place long enough for most to see.

We still have posts being made in the classifieds that do not belong here. Scam warnings that should be in Trader Watch, request for courier assistance and even a post on who has dealt with an organisation. There is the odd humorous post that comes by, and yes we do give them some leeway. Life is too short to be grumpy and we do need our humor to stay sane.

We have been summarily deleting the off forum topics.

With the volume it takes place at, I am beginning to wonder, is this what the community still wants? It is after all, your place, we just mind it :idea:

So consider the alternatives and make your vote. Do remember posts in the classified section are deleted after a few months so any combining of forum subject matter will also be deleted.

We can collapse the sections into whatever we want to, as long as people advertising stuff for sale decide to scam others and until buyers decide to heed the many warnings on the forum they will be scammed. People get scammed not because of Avcom, but because of stupidity....

If it aint broken don't fix it...

And just a day or two before, some nice and easy tips to reduce image size for upload. I can understand why you give up.

Correct, as those are valuable and need to be retained. Not for them to disappear with the normal classifieds when they are deleted.

Just in case you looking for them, they are available in the Tricks and Tips section viewforum.php?f=306 along with other gems of information to help you get the best from your AvCom experience.

Roger, don't give up, please. If the post irritates you that much then move it to wherever you feel or delete it. You have the ability, use it.

Danie, ou toppie, what must I say, do you feel better now after getting that off your chest. =D> =D>

I bow in front of this forum in absolute embarrassment for making the mistake for one, to ask a question, and for the second to ask it in the incorrect section. I am humbled by the stunning ability of those who realized the error of my ways and then, in-stead of talking to me about the error, decided to show their disgust on this public and open forum. I beg your forgiveness for daring to open my mouth on the wrong stage and will accept whatever punishment the powers that be will throw at me.

Wow, well spotted gents..........

I believe it is actually good as is, it is what we requested in the first place.
The problem is that some members just ignore the rules and pust under model personal classifieds anyhow.
We don't want the moderators to constantly monitor and "beg" people to use the correct topics.

If you look at the little number of posts under trader watch and community courier, and the ignorance of some, we may just as combine the three.
