Recently there has been a spate of members offering to sell a tool or solicitations of "wanted to buy". These are not allowed by the SMC TOS (Terms of Service), nor are continuing conversations/negotiations. So far I've been pretty lenient, but I can't allow this to continue. If you are Contributor, list your non-commercial item in the Sawmill Creek Classifieds. If your status is Member, you can not post there, but you can upgrade your status to contributor by donating $6 per year to the Creek. As always, we do allow you to mention items you sell in answer to a direct questions and as part of a technical discussion.
If someone is posting that they need a particular type of tool and you have one, it is perfectly OK to PM the person asking the question. As always, solicitations by commercial entities will be immediately deleted. Repeated infractions place your posting priveleges in jeopardy and can get you relegated to Guest status. I ask that you make my highly paid moderator job easier by following the rules. I would also ask anyone who has not yet done so, to read the Terms of Service. They are accessible on the bottom right hand corner of every page on the Creek.
Thanks in advance for the cooperation folks.
