Default Bids and Offers

In just a few days Iíve seen forum members inviting pm offers for their items and in both instance the items were not as described or were damaged. IMOO they should put things in an auction if thatís what they want where they will be forced to describe the item and the buyer has some degree of protection. I know lots of people have the wherewithal to know when something is wrong but others donít. Look out for your fellow collectors and Iíd suggest we try and highlight these type of activities.

Very well said! I have learned a wealth of information since I've joined this forum and am truly grateful for all of the help I've received thanks to members sharing their knowledge so graciously.

Thanks Terry I just think how people helped me when I started out. There are too many rip off merchants out there sadly.

The point you raise Holyboy is not only proper etiquette, it's also forum policy as established by Alan O:

https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ad.php?t=78876

"Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Sales section is designed to be a platform for members to sell on badges at a reasonable price to other collectors. To that end please:

Please price all sales with a set price. That price should be in the spirit of the generous nature of the forum: which is run at no cost to members for the benefit of others to enjoy the hobby.

If you want dealers' prices perhaps you should open a website of your own.

If you want to run an auction, then go to ebay.

Professional dealers are always welcome but please use the forum in the spirit it runs otherwise you will lose good will of the forum ie don't take advantage of others generous pricing for your own gain."


As always, keep in mind the old adage: CAVEAT EMPTOR! Cheers,

Walt
