I have been around since the early days and listed as corporate member. Where do I locate the "Post threat button? I have posted "for sale" as well forum items in the past.

From the main forum page (you may need to click the "Forums" link), look above the "Our Sponsors" banner on the right

This forum section is for members to post personal woodworking-related items for sale (or offer to purchase). In order to post here, you must have User or higher status (i.e., not New User). If you don't see the "Post Thread" button, that is why. If you are unclear why you are still in New User status, look at the "Promotion Info" under your profile.

Posts here are for non-commercial single time sales. If you would like to advertise items for your business, contact the staff here.

Do not posts comments disparaging the listings here or quibbling on the price. Genuine questions or additional information on the item is permitted.
Could you add instructions on how to remove one's ad once the item has been disposed of/is no longer available?
I think there is a way. I think I was able to do it. But cannot recall. found myself jumping on a garage door ad for a second time after the item(s) were gone: From Sep 7, 2021!

Charles, in a perfect world the OB (original poster) should update the Ad or close the thread. Any of the moderators or Admin folk can also do it if requested. I will see if some simple instructs can be put together but even if it is simple, it will still fall on the OB.

I went ahead and added (Gone) to the listing...

Thanks.

Well, yeah. But, as the questions scattered in this thread attest, folks are more into WW'ing than computers. It took me a while (maybe a year ago?) to discover how I could delete my stuff - (or have someone do it - to be honest, I can't recall details).
One would think deleting a post would be a feature of the software - maybe adjacent the "Like" up thumb or in the "More Options" If you find out, let me know!
After all, it is likely that the vast majority of the listings under For Sale have sold.

Charles,
IIRC there is not a function for deleting a post built into the software.
Additionally there was a decision made some time ago to keep the for sale listings as they are a good reference for setting pricing for future items (when someone doesn't have a good pricing reference.

One option would be to create a 'Sold' subgroup, where items can be moved once sold or no longer available to be sold. We'll have to look at the permission settings as to who would be allowed to move posts into that subgroup, definitely moderators would have it, OPs, that needs to be discussed

Good afternoon. I have been a user since the mid 2000s. Not sure why it says new user. Haven't logged in in a while. Trying to sell some hickory lumber.

We could do that or just have the subject line changed to SOLD. Either way would be fine with me.
