Edit ad?

Postby hap2 » Mon Feb 02, 2015 3:36 am



I put an ad in the "For Sale / Wanted" category.

How do I edit it? (I don't really wanna buy a bike from the USA) as exchange, duty, taxes, etc would almost double the price.

For a short period of time, after you post, in the upper right corner you will see a small box that says EDIT.
Although I don't understand why, that box disappears after a period of time.
Once it's gone, you can PM Admin and ask for the post to be edited or you can add another post on your own thread explaining what you want.

Right. It disappears after a while to prevent hacked accounts from going in and editing/deleting existing posts en masse - and yes, it's happened. There are "bots" out there that are written to use hacked accounts to log onto forum sites and insert ads or malware into all of the messages posted by that account. It happened here once, so after I cleaned up the mess, I added that "feature" to prevent it happening again.

Pic was sent to me by a friend. Assume it was taken in Arizona, where he lives.
