    Hi everyone,

    Just a reminder that FS listings are manually reviewed prior to appearing and that they are handled on a first in first out basis, typically in under 24 hours.

    PMing myself or other mods saying why hasn't it been approved isn't super helpful as we already handle a lot of PM traffic and the 15-35 odd per day new listings do get handled eventually whether you message or not.

    Its especially annoying when you PM multiple mods with the same thing, because we then have multiple conversations so please try to direct anything urgent to either myself or Darren (Dlt222), but just be patient if you're waiting.

    Thanks,
    Ash

    If you have more posts does it get approved quicker?

    ;)

    People these days expect the "internet" to be the "instantnet".

    They sometimes fail to understand that some human involvement is required, and humans need time for sleep, food, relaxation, employment, a cold beer.................

    This is good to know. Might not be a bad idea to include the information in the selling rules. That way the handful of folks who actually read them, will know. I'm as guilty as anyone about wondering why it takes so long; it would have been nice to know. It also would have been easier for members to tell me to quit whining and read the rules.

    Perhaps another line in the rules should say that if you must have it listed and sold within 24 hours, then eBay is the right place to post your listing with a starting bid of $1.

    Out of order to be pushy, especially considering there isn't even a membership fee. Some people are here for only one reason.

    .....to maintain awareness of the U.S. economy (sorry, I was not able to contain myself) :p

    but aside my poor joke, I’m taking the opportunity to bump this important message to the top!

    I’m not at enough my posts to sell, nor do I have the heart to part with any of my omegas. This is a good item to note. Thanks for bringing up the issue.

    If your item does not sell fast enough you can always donate it to the Mods. We try to help out as much as possible as we know you are anxious to find a good home for you babies .
    As always please remember , donations should be allocated to staff in your home continent :D
