    To optimize your chances of a speedy response it is best to post a reply in the thread as well as sending a PM to the seller/buyer.

    Great idea - a PM will usually trigger an email alert where a reply alone wont.

      A question

      I'm a little lost as to how to post an ad listing my espresso machine for sale. I've been a member for a few months and posted plenty of comments, but still can't seem to find out how to list it.
      Apologies for my ignorance.

        Post a thread there. Best to put location and price in the title for ease of reading.

          Welcome to CS Marcus 1974!

          If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see a little pane that shows 'posting permissions'.
          Check out your status, but prior to your post above you only had 5 or less posts, which would have excluded you from starting a new 'For Sale' thread.

          Read this as well to get more info:

            Thanks for your help. So I take it that I need to have posted more than 5 times in order to be eligible to list.
            Cheers

                        Spamming replies just to increase your post count may not guarantee your item for sale will be accepted.

                        Upping your post count just to circumvent the rules is "not in the spirit of the game".

                            I see the ;-D chokki however hit and run posters are not what I come here for.
                            It should be a fair exchange of information between old timers and newcomers alike.

                            There are plenty of other places to advertise without having to engage honestly with other people. ;-p

                            The contributors to the spammed threads rarely get value added to their topic.
