    Auctions

    So I tried to auction my gps for $1 reserve on here.
    I got told not to by @Spanners.
    I said fair enough the rules are the rules and I agreed to swap it instead.
    I then suggested @Spanners let me run my auction as a test to see if it was a good thing or not.

    Seems like Iv been an arsehole and now I cannot use my Buy sell thing. have a read and decide if im outta line or not.
    https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....reserve-46381/


    I am so sorry @Spanners, can you please stop stopping my buy sell thing. I promise not to ever question you again. Sorry.


    As for the auction, Seems like a few people are not keen on the idea of having auctions here.
    Some say it will ruin the forum etc.
    Fair enough, I can see that happening if a bunch of vultures started listing a heap of new crap here.

    Ill play by the rules, but I still think it would be nice to be able to put up a $1 reserve auction for used goods only.
    Maybe that would work? maybe not, either way its easily reversed if it turns to shit.

    My two cents anyway.

    So who wants a GPS?
    @Blisters you have first chance if that manhole cover is still up for grabs.

    Ever so sorry

    You have found my archilles tendon 40mm. I have but one fear in life and that is auctions. Anyway to your post, I don't get the whole dollar reserve thing. What if there is only one bidder and the miserable prick only says a buck.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    To be fair you know the rules,
    The rules clearly state NO AUCTIONS
    you chose to ignore that
    Then asked after the fact
    Then tried to rally others to agree with you.
    Sorry but maybe asking by pm first would have been more diplomatic.
    This is a hunting and shooting forum first, the buy sell section is a privilege follow the rules or list it on tard me.
    Spanners is forever having to tidy up for sale posts of people who don't follow the rules or think they are above them.
    Can't say I blame him fir being a bit sick of it all

    Well I dont remember reading that, so that is my ignorance right there.
    What he sent me, said nothing about no auctions.
    All I tried to do once given the word not to auction, was suggest it was given a chance.
    Im happy not to auction if that is the rule, but it would be nice to let the buyers decide what something is worth.

    Fair enough with the cleaning up after incorrect threads etc, Actually sorry for that one @ spanners.
    And @Spanners if you change your mind and decide to trial an auction feature Ill let you use my gps auction and I wont even give any ribbing etc.

    Put a price on it pretty clear really, it doesn't say state a reserve price.
    No hate not out to start a key board war.
    Your not helping your cause any with your tongue in cheek comment in the "things you really like" thread either btw.
    Learn and move on.

    40mm: GPS for auction
    Spanners: No you're not allowed to auction
    40mm: Oh I didn't know that, ok then. Maybe people want auctions though, we could try one and see?
    Spanners: No.
    Spanners: No!
    Other people: We don't want auctions either
    Spanners: NO!
    40mm: OK then no auctions. I'll offer it for swaps instead
    Spanners: *hits lock button* No you can't sell or swap it now either.
