If you'd like to discuss or ask questions about our updated Buy, Sell and Trade (BST) forum rules, as announced here, please do so in this thread. The moderators and myself would be happy to answer any questions or help you with your posts. Also, please feel free to read our Further Reading on our BST rules.

Regards

Mark

I ran across this in your other posting- wasn't aware of it, and thought I would post to maybe bring a bit more attention for others that may not be aware-

"In fact, I lose money because of some of you, the ones running ad blockers on CoffeeGeek. But that's another issue."

I don't mind the ads, thank you for not doing pop-ups though!

Maybe if a few more knew about this they would allow the ads- really not such a big deal.

Thank you, Mark, for a great website.

Ron

(A bit OT regarding the BST I know, sorry for that)

Read the rules and they state the requirements for posting to sell. However, I missed the mention of requirements for posting "want to buy" or I looked in the wrong place. What are those requirements?

Tighter rules are a great idea imho. Internet scams have become too common all over.

I have some questions about BST posting as I want to respect your rules and think coffeegeek/you guys are awesome with all the work you do-

I guess first so you don't waste time answering moot questions is-

I have/had an espresso repair business (just repairing no product sales) and have to close and move east for family reasons and need to sell my Pasquini Livia, Mazzer SJ, Baratza Vario, Quest M3  and all my manual coffee brew systems (single, used items- 6c chemex Kone V1, 2, 3; Hario V2 dripper/server, Beehouse dripper, Hario Vac-Pot) and VST Lab refractometer. Am I allowed to?

If I have multiple items for sale (espresso machine/grinder complete package, quest roaster, and various manual brewing systems I need to sell) do I need to post for each item/package separately or is it allowed to post for all of them at once - 'pile of coffee gear...' - list prices in the thread?

I guess they're the two main ones. I have more but I'm drawing a blank right now.

I'd like to sell them to coffeegeeks as no one takes better care of their gear than me and no one deserves good coffee gear than coffeegeeks but that is up to you. If you need or are interested in knowing my character you can contact Justin Hartman of Ozo Coffee in Boulder (where I've lived for 13 years). Ask him anything. You can also talk to Vince Fedele as he might give you a less than stellar review of my character but still honest and straight forward I believe. Your call of course.
Sincerely,
Dan Kennedy

 
Cheers,
dan
