It is so aggravating to take the time to read an ad only to find out we have to play 20 questions for location to see if it is worth considering for a pick up or FTF! How stupid can posters be that they insist on leaving location out of their ad or even easier, their PROFILE? We're NOT asking for your address! Just the general area and state! It's getting to the point of not bothering to open ads up. I had one seller, post that his location was the "east coast"! What an a$$wipe! The east coast is over 1500 miles long!
OK, rant over. Thanks.

ETA: A posted price would be great too.

    I feel your pain, wizard78. I buy/sell a lot of stuff on this sight, but I also pass on a lot of interesting items because I'm tired of begging for this simple bit of info!
    Mine is the best office in the world; the Indian River Lagoon!

    Thank you!!! It seems so simple. Just put it in your profile and then you don't have to worry about it. Like you said, don't need street adress...just a general area...city, county,something people!!!

    have a great day

    i agree there are times i dont respond to a post just cause there is no location
  • relicshunterrelicshunter Posts: 469 Deckhand
    I agree also, so frustrating.
    I suggested this on a different forum, with hopes of meeting other close members, and you would have thought I had two heads for suggesting it.

    I agree why would anyone try to hide the area they are from and yet try to sell something??
    I have missed a few things I was interested in because they were too far away but at least I was able to tell where they were
  • dnelsondnelson Posts: 193 Deckhand
    Should be a requirement to post an ad. At least put the county you live in it would at least
    Keep people from wasting there time- when you know you would never drive that far for an item. How about it Moderators?

    Super secrete agents I guess? Face to face sale, but I am not going to tell you where at or even how much I want for that matter. If you can find me and guess what I have for sale and what I want for it, you can buy it.
