Read This Before Posting A "Free to a Good Home" Classified Ad

This classified area is intended for use by forum members who want to give away an item through the forum to another member. We will actively monitor new posts in Classified Boards for such use and compliance with the Classified Requirements and Restrictions.

The purpose of this Board is for a member to offer items for free to any other member, usually for the cost of shipping. Such a listing would have a title like this:

Free to a Good Homeit's yours if you want it, PM me

When posting an item in this board, it is REQUIRED that the topic "title" start with the nature of your posting so that when the post shows up in another member's list of "unread posts since last visit," the item is clearly states Free to a Good Home. This is to the benefit of the person creating the Classified listing.

It is also important to create a separate topic for each item you have in of the boards. Have 3 items? Then create 3 topics. Same applies to the other 3 Child Boards. Multiple items in one topic becomes a real headache to manage since members can no longer edit their posts that are more than 7 days old so a listing with more than one item requires a member to ask a Global Moderator to use their precious time to edit their listings – just common sense and courtesy to do one item per topic. There can be exceptions, multiple items per listing, but please find a Global Moderator willing to help you update your multiple item listing as item sell.

Finally, when your classified listing is complete (shipped to its new home), it is essential to reply one last time saying the item is gone, the classified listing is no longer active. This will allow a Global Moderator to move the topic to the "Old Classifieds" boards. This will not only let members know it is gone or found but will also allow the Moderators to keep the Classified Boards filled with only active listings.

Thank you, and enjoy!
