    Default Please note

    I am getting a note saying.... "PLEASE NOTE:
    All correspondence between Buyers and Sellers is to be done in the thread, NOT by PM.
    PMs' and Emails are ONLY to be used for exchanging personal contact information and only when the deal has been done between buyer and seller.

    If you want to buy the item enter "I'll take it" if you need more info ask for more info in the thread not via PM."

    Are others buyers & sellers seeing this or am I being targetted?
    Just curious if my actions / purchases has signaled this warning or advice where bold type is in RED

    You're not targeted as I am seeing them as well in each and every market place thread.

    I am seeing it and I am a moderator, so no, it is a general message to all.

    Aah, glad it is a general notice. I put up my first 'for sale' item on the forum a couple of days ago (Tanner FS100 lathe & P&N chisels) and saw this notice tonight. It comes across as quite confronting, especially when there has been no correspondence via PM whatsoever.

    It looks like there has been a minor upgrade recently as I have noticed a few changes, including logging into the forum has changed (for the better).

    Hopefully the lathe will sell soon and the notice will disappear.

    I'd suggest that this is a notice that will stay for all marketplace posts. Doesn't make sense to remove it - it'd be simplest to set it on a subforum level irrespective of whether an item was moarked sold or not, and that way everyone sees this reminder. The forum pinned posts saying this were clearly not getting through to everyone.

    Yes at first it was a bit confronting and made me wonder if it was a targeted message to specific individuals who may have been deemed to have transgressed the forum rules. It certainly got my attention, so it is obviously working as intended.

    Its hard work herding cats, so thank you Neil & the mods for keeping the peace.

    Sorry folks may have been my fault as my recent posts have not been closed by me stating the offering has been sold. Probably obvious that they were sold but rules are rules and should be heeded. My apologies to all members and moderators for any concern caused by my tardiness.
