Swap Thread

A quick question........

Are you allowed to stick a swap thread in the for sale section or is it only items that are for sale?

I.e swap red mats for blue mats or would I need to advertise my red mats with a price only?

Think you'd need to advertise them for sale with a price to comply with the rules but state you would be willing to accept a swap.

Mmmmmmmmm see the item(s) I wanna get rid of (not mats by the way ) I'd rather do a straight swap for their equivalent as I can't really do without if mine sold and I hadn't managed to source a replacement so the best way I thought to deal with that would be to swap with someone who had what I wanted and I had the thing they wanted?

Maybe a mod can clarify before I decide how to post before I break any rules or cause confusion?

I noticed that but assumed that was more for cleaning products/accessories.

I will await clarification from a mod, however, if it's a no maybe a Swap section could be an idea? Would allow people to exchange items for others they may wish? I'm not a gamer but things like Xbox or PS3 games could be swapped between members once completed etc or as mentioned before 3 door mats could be swapped for 5 door mats if originally the wrong ones were purchased to save the hassle of selling and then sourcing again?

Yep good idea, a "general swaps" thread, sounds like a plan.

I think this has already been suggested recently but was turned down by the mods as you can swap stuff in the for sale section, you just have to set a price as well as per the rules.

This.

If you want to trade or swap an item, then that's fine, but you must still provide a price because inevitably someone will offer cash.

Just advertise your item with a cash purchase price of 1,000,000.00 but would be willing to swap for <insert desired item here>
