While my transaction with nxakt was very smooth, I did break one of the two rules I highly recommend.

1. Pictures of the item (this is the rule I broke). - People know exactly what they are getting.
2. Stated price. - No good ever comes from a seller fishing for an offer.

Definitely good rules. Nothing more annoying than someone posting an image off of the manufacturers website of something you want to buy. "It looks just like this, only blue..."

This is a great idea, my friends do the same with sports equipment. Once they upgrade to a better or newer one, they sell the previous one. I don't see why this shouldn't work with design tools.

Alright. Any new traction to this old subject? This time I'm looking to unload a couple of Philippe Starck chairs. Again, I can do ebay, but since it is "designer" crap, I think offering it to designers first makes sense.

And if it is OK, I will follow my 2 rules of posting pictures and price. Shipping is trickier to nail down as with a big box, zones make a difference.

I'd still have to side with "not allowed" We get enough spam as it is and for the small amount of legit posts, we'd be even more swamped with spam (they search out forums with "for sale" keywords I've heard).

Forums are a great way to keep stuff inside the community...we do it on the 3D print board as well.
But rules like having at least 100 posts and one item per month max. would be good.

Locking this thread down. Now it's just a target for spam it seems. Case and point.
