Posting a Wanted ad on Applefritter

Post as much information as possible on the item you're looking for. What you're willing to pay, what you offer to trade, what specifications or condition of the item all help readers decide whether they have what you want.

Any information you wish to add after posting can be added as a reply to your original message.

"Bump" posts are not allowed.

Replying to a post:

If you're interested in responding to a want ad, do it through private message only (PM).

To send a PM, click the user's name, then click on the "Send private message" link.

It is not necessary to reply within the thread "I've sent you a PM". These posts will be deleted, and you will be sent a PM noting your post has been removed.

Negotiating a sale, questions or suggestions to the seller should all be done through PM.

In short, there are few times when anyone other than the original poster should post to a Wanted thread.

Posts that are useful to other users (eg: That's the Sawtooth not Yikes board, seller is in Wales, etc.) will not be deleted, but are discouraged as posters should include this information in the first place.

Questions about hardware you're looking for should be asked in the appropriate forum, and not part of your Wanted post.

Buyer beware:

Applefritter provides space for buying, selling and trading goods. However, please note transactions through Applefritter are the responsibility of the buyer and seller only. Any use of Applefritter forums for fraudulent purposes should be brought to the attention of a moderator.

Suggestions:

  • Ask for references, which could come from other members here, or an ebay account that they can prove is theirs.
  • Get package insurance and tracking
  • Get a signature required on delivery, in case an item is left half-out your front door when no one's home
