Fix the Craigslist/eBay Forum description

People will take advantage of every stupid little loophole that they possible can.

how am i TAKING ADVANTAGE? I am trying to sell a car for my old man

and here you go again. attacking me in a whole new forum. if you have a problem with it why dont you let some know instead of having to create a thread about it.

i figure with how long you have been around you surely know the right people to contact to get this changed without making it a public outcry, or is that you have already pissed them all off too?

You are exactly right about knowing how to get things changed and I'll tell you why:

Putting it out there for everyone to see coincides with CC's intent for GL to be "self-moderated". You found a mistake that has been overlooked for a while. I don't give a crap about you, Lemur, as a person. The problem is that there is something incorrect on the board that needs to be fixed.

You can look on eBay, but you may not find it there.

The reason this little shindig started is because Lemur looked at the description of the Craigslist/Ebay/Auction Forum (not the Forum Title) and decided it was for eBay items only. Instead of taking about 30 seconds to copy/paste the contents of his Craigslist posting and attach the picture, he created this thread in Vehicles For Sale which consisted of only a Craigslist link and nothing else (no price, etc) to get the best possible value at the lowest cost. If the discussion was only soft-deleted in that thread, you can read it all. It consists of a lot of people backing up a mistake and bitching at me, so you'll love it.

Its a stupid, little detail that was exploited upon because the Forum Description was not updated to coincide with the Forum Title back when the scope of that particualr Forum was expanded to include Craigslist links. In the beginning, that Forum was just eBay stuff. It was changed to include Craigslist links when the Pub began to get cluttered with them. The intent of that Forum is obvious and clear, but somebody forgot to edit the description which apparently left the door open for this arguement. Title says "eBay/Craigslist/Auctions", description says only eBay. Omission of a small detail caused a big deal. That's all.
