Question Pinned Free Parts/Gear Thread?

Just a thought...An idea borrowed from ADVRider, which was borrowed from a Yamaha FZ site. Shown here at the top.

A "Pay it Forward" kind of thread where members post a note about gear and/or parts they will give away.
Whoever calls dibs first gets the shipping cost.
Done.

Seems to work well at ADV, but you know it gets a little crowded over there. Almost a frenzy sometimes.

I'm guessing it would be less a madhouse to have one here.
Is it doable/manageable at Stromtrooper?

i can't seem to find it??

i'm guessing it may have been removed by fatal error due to people dis-obeying the rules of the free forum...he had threatened because people weren't using it properly...

i was the first recipient from it as well...got a nice stock windshield...i think it's a good thing to have around, the free thread that is...

Bummer, but I can understand how abusing it would get old fast.

Perhaps it would be OK to just use what's already here... Meaning just use the "For Sale" forum to simply list an item "Free: Used Tire Inflator" for example.

I was not removed. I unpinned it because it was getting very little use, and if you can't find it it possibly got culled after 45 days due to not being used.

I take exception to being accused of threatening. I did not "threaten" anyone. I requested that items that had been passed on be marked as such.
This job is unpaid and voluntary. Feel free to volunteer your time and services. We can use the help.

Sorry Ray, my intentions were not to make you look like a bad person, you are only doing your part as an admin here, and the last thing I want to do is get on the bad side of an admin.

You're right, threaten was the wrong word, please accept my apologies. The things you do to keep this forum in-line are valid, and I agree with your actions on the thread and elsewhere on this forum.

I would love the opportunity to help out more on this forum, I've never been a moderator or any person of power on a forum, but this is also the first forum I've been this involved with. If you are serious, I would be willing to help.

Regards,
Bass

Hi guys, I was the one that recommended the thread. i guess it worked a little but since there are far fewer members here than ADV it stands to reason that there will be far less activity.

I'm not telling anyone how to do their job, but if it isn't pinned no one will use it because no one will take the time to find it. after all, how much work will someone do to give something away?

Glad the windshield found a good home Bass!!!
