About all those FS, LF and WTB threads here...

Postby Hook » February 24th, 2011, 10:41 am

There's a Classifieds forum for just that.

Because this forum is manufacturer-specific, we recognize that sometimes it's difficult to sift through the hundreds of threads in those classifieds to find stuff, so we've allowed such a facility by way of the WTB and FS threads stickied at the top of the forum page to prevent the tech info threads from being lost in a clutter of buy and sell threads, but it seems that some of you are not really paying attention to that anymore.

Now, the forums has been cleaned up a bit and WTB/FS threads with no responses have been merged into the appropriate WTB/FS stickies, while others have been moved to the Auto Parts Classifieds, leaving shadow topics in their places. Let's have some order in here please.

Thank you.

I'm thinking to post a 20V-specific FS/WTB thread inno...since is mostly those parts flying around on here...the starlet/JZ guys seem to have their parts network running pretty well since very little of it ends up on the forums

I wouldn't jump to ban on that just yet tho. For now I'll juggle 'em around and once order is kept, we'll be good. If ppl start to blatantly ignore the rules, we'll take whatever action is deemed necessary.

Another thing i've noticed is that there is a very informative 20V thread yet there are numerous other threads popping up with persons asking questions already addressed in that 20V thread....Might be a good idea to sticky an official thread..

I'm seeing a trend now with 2nrs posting what they have for sale in ppl's tech question threads.

eg.
2nr-A: hai guize, anyone knows where I can do a starlet conversion in a laurel?
2nr-B: dawg, you high?
2nr-C: check dem ska konsep fellas
2nr-D: check spongy in cunupia [insert number here]
2nr-E: 4E-FTE in a laurel?! WTF?!
2nr-F: I have a complete starlet conversion...call me @ 867-5309


If, like 2nr-F, you're guilty of doing this, YOUR POSTS WILL BE DELETED.

There is a Auto Parts & Accessories Classifieds forum, as well as The Official Toyota Marketplace Thread-F.S. and The Official Toyota Marketplace Thread-W.T.B. threads stickied. USE THEM!

I'm being nice and moving/merging threads if I'm in a good mood, but if your thread is deleted and you're banned, you know why.

If anyone notices their threads are missing, merged or moved (with or without shadow topic), now you know why.

this problem will continue to exist simply because you cannot bump posts in the sticky fs/wtb and obviously some people will want to bump their thread. Apart from that you can't reply to a post if someone else already posted something else afterward so it all results in a bit of confusion. I think this website is now vast enough to have manufacturer specific wtb and fs classifieds apart from the general purpose one. Organizashmentification is the answer!

Wrong. DISCIPLINE is what's required. Other auto forums, with several tens of thousands MORE members than trinituner, don't have this facility that you're suggesting and their systems work just fine.
Here are three examples.
Toyotanation
no fs threads.jpg

Yota Tech
no fs threads2.jpg

Bimmerforums
no fs threads3.jpg


You get the idea.

We attempted to be accommodating by establishing two sticky threads for buying and selling. The threads aren't very long and users can very well PM or call the buyer/seller at will. If one wishes to have a thread bumped periodically, one is free to make a properly titled thread in the tuner classifieds so that buyers/sellers can find it in the search.
We're actually being VERY lenient as it is, but it would seem we need to make examples of some users.

There will be no warnings. If your thread is deleted and you are banned, now you know why.

What is the story with the cell phone wholesaler from UK that keeps pop-in up on the Toyota Forum every now and again.
