Good Idea for members who use market place

  1. To save everyones time either post an approximate location ( ie northeast ohio ) or near biggest city or landmark. In your profile or signature.

    That way a prospective buyer or seller would immediately see if it was cost effective to go pick up , too far to bother with. Also would be effective in other forums. Like in fishing reports and other social settings like a newbie wanting an old pro to take him out on the ice.

    Hate to pm somebody about an item only to find out hes 300+ miles away.

    it's just common sense to do that when you want to sell something. some people just don't get it.

    This would fit right in with the "get it off your chest" thread!:)

    marc,no it isn't.that is an option in your profile and some people don't put it in.
  11. Sort of like, also send me your email so i can send you a pic/virus of what im selling. Still the best site going even if some folks dont do things the way I think they should be done lol.
  12. Guess i never noticed that everyone didn't have it.

    Nevermind :confused:

    just another sign of old age:p :D
  14. Ahh Rick,

    You know we both have lived longer than either of us expected to.

    Is there a way you can make it mandatory. Good idea Papaperch!
  15. I always put my proximity in my ads cause I don't want the bother of trying to ship something that weighs up to 300 lbs. Course I only sell everything to bassmastermjb or hearttxp anyways and they know the route down here well enough to do it blindfolded!

    LOL,i heard that,marc.

    it's probably possible to make it mandatory when registering,but with the thousands of existing members,it might be impossible.
