Hi All, can we please keep ads to the classified section. We have been allowing references in the 'found on the net' area too.
The place loses it's focus with a load of ads.

A sticky here ( "Instruments" ) guiding future sellers might be useful.

I don't find the location of the classifieds ( under "Goodies" ) to be entirely obvious.

I'll "sticky" this topic and add a link to the Classifieds section.

http://classifieds.tromboneforum.org/


Edit 12/30/11:  The Classifieds section referenced in the link above is not functional as of the date of this edit.  Please use the following link instead:

Found on the Net is OK.  Not Instruments.  Please understand the difference.

This board (Instruments) is for talking about characteristics of instruments, playing feel, options, etc.  It is NOT for buying or selling.

Nope - Sorry if I was not clear. We're just trying to keep them out of Instruments section, and the Classifieds area is intended to be the primary place for ads.   :)

MAYBE keep  dirtbags out 
like the vdirtbag  who   wanted  a non chinese
547  b/f  that looked  and played good  for  375  shipped
oh yes i will take it -dirtbag says
   and after i  found something
BACKED OUT  !
=======================
i really do appreciate  all the  help  with those  needing  trombones
  but the cheepskates  and chislers i can do  without
=======================
  lathe  --both  the local  guys i  have  working on bones  need  a lathe
so out went  a  check  for  600  to secure  a  vinty  KLAUSING   6 x 36
with  good things like  two chucks  /live  centers  etc
--------\
   still need another   small lathe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-
--------------
spent a lot of time  answering  this turkey's  pms
 it got down to
i found  one --send me the  $$$$$$$$
---------------
also got  spammed   on ads  wanting to  know if i would take cashiers check
-------------
 the  moderators have been exceptionally tolerant 
 of  the trials  and tribulations    of  trying buying  tasting   
talking  tooting  and  just  a  whole world of  things about trombones
  since cyberspace it has become   just  so incredibly easy
   to  research   and source  multiple needs 
--------------
 so often parents   hit the instrument section
asking for  help  finding their  children  trombones
 this is  most  always     a very  nice  experience 
however  i  am still not  all for putting  the wee ones on elkhart  88hs

You are not trying to sell it? Then you need no price point.

You want to sell it? Then put it on ebay and I assure you the market will establish
a price point for you.

Incapable of searching the web for like items to know your market?
Don't try selling your wares.

I guess we have to define what an ad is. If someone is posting "news" about what their protégé tech is currently building, how much it costs, and how it's all the rage for pro players, I'd consider that an ad.

I'll "sticky" this topic and add a link to the Classifieds section.

http://classifieds.tromboneforum.org/


tbone62, when I try to open this link in my browser it says that

"The Classifieds area is in the midst of a major upgrade.
Watch this space for the reappearance of the site, estimated to be 1 October 2011."

Has the classfields section changed to a different place or is somehow still not accessible??

The original classifieds are still inoperable.  The mods graciously created a new for sale topic here:

Note: if you found some interesting instrument you may be interested in buying, you can ask about it here or in "Found on the Net".  Offers to sell, trade, or buy are supposed to go in the Classified section.  Negotiations belong in the PM or e-mail areas.

To put it a little more bluntly:

"I found a Buescher Grand trombone.  What is it?" can go here.

"I want to buy an Elkhart Conn 88H" goes in Classifieds.

"I have one to sell you" in response to an ad goes as a PM.

Is there a classified section?

Can someone post a link please?

Simple. Sign in and look at the bottom of the page.

Under "Forum Administration" you will see a classified section. (just above "recent posts")

You will notice that it's an announcement.  Nowhere are prices mentioned.  If they were, I'd have moved it to Classifieds.

Feel free to ask questions about the new Shires Q series there, or on Ben Griffin's thread, or BrassGurus' thread.
