Exclamation Trading on the e-group forum

I just wanted to inform everyone that after some discussion among the mods in response to some private and public feedback from members we will shortly be revising the forum rules in order to refocus the forum on what it was intended for; involved activity including discussion and image sharing and helping and informing each other. Unfortunately, our membership has attracted people who are only interested in doing business via the classified ads section here.

The rule changes are aimed at preventing members from using the forum primarily for trading (buying/selling or swaps). We also want to deal with the problem of members finding that something they sold recently being re-sold here on the forum for a profit.

The For Sale and Wanted section of our forum will continue to be a valuable and useful resource for members, but we want to make it clear that if you are almost exclusively using our site for trading, you will no longer be welcome here.

Ian
