    @Spyro Peeps who tag the SAME person in one all the time are simply too lazy to take other steps. For example, what I do now is to keep a list of peeps who have specifically said that they are willing to be tagged in comps on the thread https://www.ecigssa.co.za/giveaway-participation-and-notification-thread.t42885/. I then mark off who I've tagged in current comps so that I don't tag them again.

    The_Ice started the above thread for those who are willing to be tagged. Perhaps you should start one for those who are unwilling? I'm sure other peeps feel the same way that you do.

    @Hooked I feel like you keep side stepping the issue of it being a bad way to run a competition. Not only are the taggings annoying. It promotes spam, it's annoying and I'd love to enter a comp but I can't because if I do A) I get notifications for weeks and B) someone else will spam the competition and win. So there is no point.

    It's therefore been my tactic to avoid competitions in their entirety.

    @Spyro from a business point of view it's a marketing strategy and thus good - for them. As I suggested, start a Don't Tag Me for Competitions thread and maybe that will help.

    A don't tag me thread is pointless as very few will read it and new comers won't abide by it. If you think about it, it'll do no good. Sure, the advertising is good for the Chinese companies and I'm not saying it's wrong to have competitions. What I'm trying to get at is that the manner in which competitions can be held should be closely monitored, just like the classifieds. With rules instead of this chaos.

    If you limit entries to one per person, you have less clutter, less people being tagged multiple times and best of all a fair competition that can be won by people who don't have the time to sit and spam a thread.

    Good morning peeps
    suggestion :
    Can we please split Classifieds into ''for sale '' and ''wanted'' ?
    It is frustrating to see ''Asmodus'' , click on the ad ,and some one wants one and not sell it.

    And if you press the return button on the pc , it takes you back to the main page and not back to eg. Giggles or Classifieds .
    I don't know if it's only me that struggle with this issue ?
    Have a great day .

    It is :) just use the actual classifieds page, not the most recent threads block on the homepage.

    https://www.ecigssa.co.za/forums/for-sale/

    https://www.ecigssa.co.za/forums/classified-trading/

    That issue you have is because you are using the most recent threads plugin on the homepage rather than scrolling down to the actual threads .

    I struggled with it for a while too.

    Just go to homepage and scroll till you find classifieds thread. Or be lazy like me and just open a new tab with every thread you open from recents.

    Even better, go to classifieds for sale and click watch forum. Then you get alerts everytime there is something new posted

    @Silver , I really think we need a vetting process for new vapers before they can post for sale items , they tend to throw on a ton of items , and when asked Q's about the items , no reply , no response , that's really annoying for us looking for a quick deal or fast bargain . There is 3 ad's at the moment that just sit without a response from ''new sellers''.

    Thanks @ARYANTO
    I hear you

    If people are going to post in the Classifieds they should be responsive to questions
    If not, it looks bad on them

    Please remember that our Classifieds is a free service to all members. As such, one needs to exercise caution when dealing with people, especially those you don’t know

    Your point is taken on board though

    I see new members posting for sale items as the first post regularly and they dont get involed in otther threads and posts.
    some of them dont respond to @Admins and other members when they are pointed at the correct way of posting sales(especially).

    I dont have an issue with them posting for sale items but,can't it be made that they have to post a few times, say maybe five posts before they can advertise (not post) in the for sale thread.

    On a previous forum I was on they had this rule. The actual forum started to become a mess. People wil just make "." or "hi" posts. The welcome thread was overly busy with newcomers bumping their post count.

    So there's a way around that too.

    I hear you too @Resistance
    And you are right, that happens

    We do try remove ads that don’t have all the required info.

    When members are unknown and don’t get involved in the rest of the forum, obviously that’s not ideal. But some do. They sign on to sell something and see the forum and get involved in the community spirit. Many don’t i agree. But some do.

    I think the main thing is to remember to be careful when dealing with people on the classifieds. Especially new members that one doesn’t know much about or haven’t been involved in the forum.

    This reminds me of when we were in school and you had to write an essay of a certain amount of words.
    I see your point and its valid but, there has to be a way.

    No doubt,I agree with you with some members becoming active, I guess thats the good thing that comes from it.
