I've had to move a ton of posts from this area to the "Wanted" section.

Pay attention here... I'll go slow:

"Trading Post" is the area for posting up items that you already have and are willing to trade.

"Wanted" is the area to post up requests for items that you do not already have, but want to obtain. Hence the "Wanted" title.

Get it? It's not that difficult, people! Come on... take a second or two and think about what it is you're posting, and where it's supposed to be posted. :rolleyes:

Also give some idea of what you want in trade for your stuff.
Specific kits if possible.

Just had an ongoing conversation with Michigan Madman, Chuck Most. He asked if I'd received his end of the trade and explained his policy is to never do anything with what he receives until the other party is happy with what they receive. Seems like a good way to ensure mutual satisfaction.

This is how I've always done it. With 1:1 parts, etc. Seems like a pretty reasonable thing to do.

That's how I've always done it- that way if something goes bad (kit turns out not to be the one the other party wanted, or it gets damaged/lost in the mail, etc.), I can at least return the kit to them, in exactly the same condition it was when it arrived.

This is simply logical to my mind. That some would NOT do this is simply foreign to me.

OOPS!  That was me.  I should have put my "wanted" item(s) in that category, and I stuck my post in the trade category.

 

Duh. :wacko:

If you are trading and offering something in exchange for something specific, don't change your mind or ask for more when it comes time to do the deal!!!! 

 

And to the person who is asking for more due to ebay prices, don't trade on this board. It is in bad taste to pull a switch on what you want because it is not as much as what they are getting on ebay for it.

And just because they are asking a $ on ebay doesn't mean they are getting it.
