We have tried in the past to post a classified section but essentially it was a very slow thread and it was put to rest due to inactivity. :)

Marko is so approachable and friendly that I suggest simply giving him a quick pm and asking him if it's ok and where to post it. Tell what you are wanting to sell so he knows what you are up to.

Basically for someone to come here and immediately start advertising stuff tends to be considered a little rude. However, if a member has been a member for a little while and we can see that they have been here for constructive reasons other than to sell, a one off sale is usually not a hassle.

It MUST be a private sale though of course! Nothing commercial or spam obviously.

But I can't speak for Marko ... things change and evolve on forums so give him a quick pm. If he has a reason to not allow selling here anymore he will very politely explain to you why that is I'm sure.

When you say "sell some stuff" do you mean camera equipment and accessories? Seems a bit vague. :shrug:

Im not saying for me to sell equipment im talking about the forum in general. its just a question I wanted to ask / suggest.

Any member that's posted a few times and is trying to legitimately be part of our community can post something for sale, no problem at all.

Thx - Marko
