Can we start a password protected classified ads section?

Postby WalnutCrest » Mon Aug 21, 2017 11:22 am

It's been discussed before (but in my rudimentary searching ability, I was unable to find the thread I'm recalling) about trying to get some sort of password protected classified ads section.

Something along the lines of -- make 50 (?) posts at CT and you're allowed in to the classified area to try to keep spammers out -- so we could list our treasures (like that rebuilt carb off of the 1967 Farmall you have out back or the 50 used hog panels you don't need since you've given up trying to keep the deer out of your garden) for sale for whomever here might want them.

Or, maybe we do have that and I wasn't invited... :???:

Anyone know where this idea sits? Did anyone approach the man behind the curtain to see if it's feasible / possible / etc.?

I'd love it. We're just so spread out. There are a few users around me. Not sure I'd have anything they need.

I wish it would . The first thing I would post is the mountain of second hand tpost I have.
Lots of them are the heavy 1.44 ones. I don't know i probably have a thousand of em 1.00 to 2.00 depending on type and quantity. If there was a place where it was allowed. That would be my first post.

Lots of stuff gets bought and sold here under the table. I've bought several open heifers here, and sold some bred. Made a business partner here.

If I lived closer, I'd buy a bunch of those T-posts from you @ those prices.

If we had a classified section, I'd post that there are 10 short bred heifers for sale in western Ky. 3 way crosses Limousine, Hereford, and charbray. All bred to a longhorn/santagertudus bull. $1750 apiece, and I'd haul em 150 miles, if I knew there was cash at my destination.

Dang, I search craigslist every month looking for used T Post. I hate buying new. I am down to my last 10.

I have it, I added it to the Christmas card list. ;) I'm not sure how far Bigfoot lives from me. I do know that Texas is a long ways away from Va.

Anytime we see T-posts at auctions/sales, they start @ .50 and work their way up to the same price as almost new. :roll:
