I joined a few months back and found that I had to post at least 25 times to see the "Trading Post". I did that, and have accessed it, but now it's gone again. Anybody know why?

I'm not a moderator but they did away with it when they made a bunch of weird forum changes.

I'm not a moderator either, but I think this has something to do with the fake moon landings, and that guy Jared from Subway.

Not trying to start anything, but....


Just sayin'.

:unsure:

Flea bay. Reverb, CraigsThing all still have people who sell guitars. Don't sweat it people think the forums days are numbered. I now work at NASA and I have been in the Hanger where the Moon Landing was Faked. I even put on the suit.

the forum Gods shut down the trading post a few weeks ago.. it's gone..

BTW... the reason for the 25 posts was to prevent people from joining the forum with the sole intent on using the trading post.

We had some issues stemming from the Trading Post. Since this forum was never intended to be a marketplace and there are a number of sites to sell used gear, it was decided to remove it.

What was the reasoning behind squishing all of the Gibson USA models into one sub forum?

Is the Trading Post no more? I don't see it.

If so, are we allowed to post Sales, trades, etc. any longer in another area of the forum?

Thanks.

P.S. I suppose this should have gone in the Forum Feedback area. Feel free to move this, admin. Thanks.

I've logged in to the forum using Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge on my Windows laptop as well as other Windows computers at work

Additionally, I've logged in using Silk on my Amazon Fire tablet.

I've logged out and logged back in again.

However, the Trading Post isn't visible to me in the forum anymore.

This has gone on for about three weeks.

Any suggestions?

It looks like it didn't make the "upgrade" a couple weeks ago. I'm guessing some lawyer somewhere for Gibson didn't want to be liable for a trade transaction that went bad. I did one transaction there and it went as expected. Product received and it worked perfectly.

Well, this answers my query from a few days ago.

Bummer. Oh, well... I've never been able to sell anything here, anyway. But it's always good to have options.
