    If you haven't read the Posting Guidelines Please read it as soon as possible. I'm getting tired of removing links to other forums, and for sale stuff. This is not allowed and can result in loosing your memberships.

    All Dealers that post here, if you want to mention your products, Please Email Support@lawnsite.com and get a banner to advertise your things. This is not allowed in posts either. We have members that pay to advertise their products, so it is not fair to advertise yours for free. This has resulted in removal of memberships too.
    Thanks for your time. ;)

    Sorry. As I think about it, I think that I'm guilty of that too, since I posted my local dealers web address on here before. I know they have a link from the dealer finder on Exmarks site as well.

    If a member is looking for a good dealer in your area, telling someone about it is no problem. It's when a member here that is a dealer mentions his products, it is an advertisement. This is what I am talking about and we are getting a lot of dealers as members now all of a sudden and I'm trying to get a grip on this before it gets out of hand.

    pardon me if this has already been discussed, but I dislike the new format of the Used equip forum. The fee involved keeps smaller equip from being listed. Maybe the fee could be related to the asking price of for sale items.
    Just a thought. Keep up the good work otherwise.

    Bob, I voluntarilty removed my last response to performanceturf.

    As you know, I have plenty to say on the subject but this is not the time or place.

    I deleted the post.

    The subject matter that Eric described takes precedence in this thread and, more changes are probably going to occur as it pertains to dealers who continually try to freeload on Chuck's hard work building this forum.

    The perps will be identified, warned, then memberships deleted like Eric said.

    I would like my membership to be looser but I definitely don't want to lose it.

    LOL :) Just kidding.

    If you guys and gals want to sell some small equipment but don't want to pay $18, sell it on eBay. It will get a lot of exposure and keep everyone happy.
