**HOW TO POST ON THE FLEA MARKET BOARD**

There are a few new "rules" for the new board. The new set up means we will have to change the manner in which we post our items. Because the new format includes permanent folders, there will be no archiving - your posts stay active forever, however they will
slide further down the list as more posts are added. Here is an example of how to post your FSOT items:

Click on Start A New Discussion under the FSOT folder.

Enter a title/subject such as "My Items for Sale (m)".

Then in the body of this post, list all the items or categories of items you have for sale or a website URL where all of your items can be viewed and your email address. DO NOT start a new discussion or a reply to the main post for every item or category you wish to list! This type of "board hogging" will be reported to ParentsPlace.

If you sell some items that you have posted, you can edit your original message and remove the items that have been sold without having to send a new reply to update your list.

As time goes on, your post will slide further down the list as more posts are added. In order to move your items back into a more visible spot, you can "bump" your post by adding a reply that simply says "bump" in the body. We ask that you only "bump" your post up ONCE per day (ie. you may log in on Wednesday to bump your post from Tuesday up to the top of the list). If you bump your post or post a new "these items still for sale" discussion more than once per day, appropriate action will be taken. Editing your original post to update your list and remove items that have sold will not bump you, so this is really the best way to make updates to your lists.

Please follow these simple rules regarding posting on this new board. We would like to keep this a nice, friendly board and do not want to have arguments started over little things like people bumping up their posts or "overposting."
