    You have some white fivers? What do you wish to purchase with them?

    I take it that you are referring to the recent For Sale thread that I closed yesterday. In fairness to John (whom you and others refer to as the policeperson) I have now looked in detail at the posting history of the member who started that thread and it is my opinion that John's concerns have been vindicated, which has prompted me to take appropriate action.

    You make a good point about concerns being expressed in open thread, but once again in fairness to John I should explain that I still have not got around to investigating another issue that he previously brought to my attention by private message.

    So you see, I am part of the problem and I must admit I have been struggling a bit just lately in my Mod role and my motivation. For this I apologise.

    Absolutely open to all members. Your money is every bit as good as my old white fivers

    Sometimes prices on here are really good in comparison with eBay, as there are no fees to factor in. We have had a few that seemed to appear, just to buy stuff, but as long as it's genuine (not an African prince) then most of the time things go well for both parties.

    I agree - usually a very friendly forum in general and a friendly trading environment too

    as Ross said early in this thread, we don't have an OLY forum in Aust and the only place we can look for used Oly gear is Ebay/gumtree . I get a bit jealous when I see so much good used gear being traded on the this forum; but rules need to be made and kept without the mods having to play the big bad policeman.

    thanks
    Thanks for asking, Bangaio. It's fine to advertize your Fuiji Gear - and great to hear that you are selling to fund some MFT lenses!

    See what the Mods say but I'd have thought it would be fine after all you want to buy some m4/3 gear and we've all got mates who haven't quite seen the light yet and use other systems.
