Post for sale item?

I can't seem to find how I can post a for sale item. I have a like new Solstice cover, black in color GM part # 19172066 in original box. HELP!
Thanks

brentil Captcha is definitely not enough anymore because now spammers pay college kids to type them in manually. They get a batch of like 1000 requests and get paid to go through and fill them out for them.

Oh trust me, I wouldn't be surprised. I'm just surprised to see that for an automotive forum. I wouldn't think them to be the most profitable... Most important though, is what works. I just couldn't believe that the Pontiac is already parked in the driveway, and I'm just now passed pending.

Ah well. Thanks for the welcome!

I mean really, isn't the captcha enough? Do you REALLY need to require everyone to pass not only e-mail registration, two versions of captcha, but ALSO require that EVERY newly registered member pass review as well before they can even LOOK at profile options??

It just seems REALLY .

Sorry it took a couple of days to get you approved .. and no, the captcha is NOT enough these days to catch the spammers. You'd be surprised at the tricks they are using these days to get approved. This is what the forum owners want in order to protect the membership.

Welcome to the forum.

jeffgtx Oh no you di-ent. Trying to start a nokia/apple flame war? Just kidding.

So define fast? I mean mine loads ok but it is that whole loading with the sponsor stuff in the center that keeps it from being near instantaneous. A mobile version is usually loads instantly with an ad or two and the text lists of the threads. To be honest the website loads slowly at home too. I am not familiar enough with web programming ro know if it is loading a java applet it flash or something but it's doing something. It would be nice to forgo that on a battery device since that runs the radio longer than need be.

It's my experience in life that if it doesn't have a timeline, then it's not really on the to do list. But thanks for voicing it to them.

This has been presented to the owners of the forum at least 2 times, most recently just a couple of months ago. Their reply was "it is on our list to do" but not time frame was given as to when it could be expected.

BTW .... site loads very quickly on my Nokia E63.

crecy1347 Thank you very much, sir

I am sorry to be such a "newb", but I did try to do the research first.

I now know where I should be looking

Thank you
For Sale should be listed in Solstices and Parts for Sale/Want to Buy (incl other vehicles) section of the forum.

Sometimes people may not search out the correct place to post a listing, they may post it in a regional area, or even in a general topic are, or all of the above at the same time.

How you see the threads will depend on how you view what is happening here. If you click on the "New Posts" in the above menu you will see the messages no matter where they were posted. If you are seeing it because you went down the chain in another area of the forum it is probably because the poster listed it in multiple areas hoping more people will see the listing.

Below is part of e-mail i recieved back from paypal on 6/3/08

I'll forward this along to the Admin.

Someone else was having issues also .... I'll try and get a "fire built".

Sorry for your inconvenience!

Any chance of a place for Solstices similar to the IMSATURN.com site. Give each of us a place to post personal things as well as pics on our cars and such.
The ability to PM more than one person is available to Supporting Members at all levels:
Solsticeforum Supporting Member Program

Also ... IMSATURN was done by Saturn not the owners of this site or SkyRoadster.

There is PontiacUnderground.com but the best of my knowledge there is nothing similar to IMSATURN.
