If they were to be posted here you would at least be able to go see what your lookin to buy instead of a picture and shipping and getting ripped off. p.s. just found out I was accepted into the chapter thanks .
the trick to the classifieds is that many of the items are too far away to be reasonable. Many of the chapters have adopted a sticky to be the accepted place to post for sale and wanted items. There will likely always be those that don't pay attention to it, and still post in the general forum, with or without the sticky. You can even put a ban on them, and I gurantee, someone will still come along and post them all the same, so it seems logical to me to have at least an attempt to allow the posts to be here, just try to be on a single thread that can be cleaned out from time to time.
I think you should put classifieds in the classifieds section but post here that you have items for sale or wanted. It would be to your advantage (bigger audience) to post in classifieds section. The post here would be to help out a chapter member that may not have pay shipping.
