Lightbulb Using the new Classified section

Hi RFF,
I recently had good results using the new classified section to sell a Leica CL I was stuck with. I placed the ad right after the new classified section opened. During the 2 weeks the ad was present, I got 5 or 6 replies out of almost 500 views, mostly serious inquiries, and sold the camera at asking price.
I think it is a great option to sell equipment in the new classified.
I was thinking that all eligible members and especially the Sponsers should try it, in case of the sponsers, I suggest listing surplus, returns or open box items that are just sitting around...may be some of the Sponsers can put up some items to be auctioned.
Hey its free(unlike Ebay), whats to lose?

This would be great if our sponsors can list some surplus in the new classified

Kiu,

The "established culture" here has made it clear that they do not like or want auctions. I wish it were otherwise but that's the way it is.

That's one reason why I won't list here. I do not know what the "going price" is for much of my "surplus" gear and if I put it up for auction. then I'm a "bad guy".

Better I use eBay.

I used the old classifieds earlier tonight simply because I couldn't figure out how to do a single posting with a number of small items. I've got about a dozen things that I'd like to sell none of which are more than $30; why should I go to the extra hassle of the new multistep system?

Not trying to be a PITA, but I really do not see an advantage for me.

And as far as it goes, there's nothing in the pile worth an auction, either...

The going price is pretty easy to figure out, it's what ever you paid for it. The idea is that you're just passing on surplus kit to whomever wants to use it now. It's the desire to reap the maximum profit from your fellow members that makes you the bad guy, at least in the opinion of the established order.

Hope this helps.

If that were the case. I'm sure this is not meant to imply it is, with respect to anyone posting in this thread.

It's wonderful we have so much choice; new rff classifieds, old rff for sale forum, ebay, and several other options. Use them as you see fit. Or not.

If I could part with my big guns right now, I would, trust me, NIKON KIU. I have been tempted many times, with both selling and buying (buying mostly, like Jorge's chromaliscious Summicron out there right now...can't, though).

It'll catch up, I'm sure. Just give it time. Rome wasn't built in one day.

people will come to be more comfortable with the new classifieds section in time and i think the plan to close down the old section eventually.
time & patience can be wonderfu,l things...

especially from people who generally shoot with 50 year old equipment!!

maybe we need a little incentive to help with this difficult transition jorge...maybe a sale price on using the new classifieds...like $1.25 introductory pricing??

just a thought...

I tried to use the new classifieds but apparently I need permission to do so. I gave up when I could not get it and listed an item the old way which did not sell..So I am not very impressed.

no permission is needed.
if an rff sponsor there is no charge, if not, there is a small fee.

i think spam is not really the correct word, especially considering what we are being offered, by whom and that tony is a sponsor here.

On all BBS boards that I visit, the classifieds generally have more items than I'll ever want or have a use for. If it isn't my cup of tea, I ignor the add.

That said, I'm addicted to the RFF's classified section, if for no other reason it is all eye candy to me.

I think it's great that Tony is listing his stuff here. Although he has good stuff, I find his site to be too slow to browse regularly.

Luigi, post what you want. You will only be offering our members the opportunity to buy some nice gear.

As for me, I am going in the pool now. 107 F now and it will climb close to 120 this weekend. Arizona is HOT !!!!

I love seeing classified from other users, always tempting, and some good bargains to be made (I did buy a Zorki 3M just last week)

If I want to browse shops with used items, I can go on eBay (yeah arsenall! ), or on whatever shops there is around.

But yeah, just just opinion. I'll "fix" it with GreaseMonkey
