    Yup.

    I wonder if the administrator did not make the change for all member groups (i.e., UUVIP).

    I'm against closing your own thread, and actually feel Admins sometimes close sales threads too early already.
    A while ago I purchased a uke off the sales forum and it had undisclosed problems with it. After no help or even compromise from the seller (he actually was very rude), I wanted to post a follow-up in that sales thread on how the purchase went. I was not able to because the thread was already closed.
    When purchasing a uke from the sales forum, one of the 1st things I do is a forum search for that seller. The next time this jerk sells a uke, potential buyers don't get to do this kind of research if a seller can quickly close a thread as soon as the $$$ is in his pocket.

    You can start a new thread and refer to the closed thread should any issues arise. If the thread needs to be reopened, contact any of the Mods via PM and why the thread should be reopened. I don't think any of us are unreasonable. What would you recommend as a waiting time before the thread is closed. I know of a couple issues that arose after the instrument was received and I don't recall if they were resolved. For the most part, the majority of the transactions have gone without a hitch.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.

    You can always file a dispute through Paypal.

    I thought of that, but didn't want to turn it into a public fight, especially since these are the kind of things that tend to take-off.
    I was going to simply post at the end of the sales thread, "Ukulele significantly different than advertised, I cannot recommend this seller. PM me for details before buying from him".
    It sometimes takes a week to week & half to get the uke in the mail, so IMO 2 weeks is a safe time to close a sales thread.

    Yes, but it doesn't give fellow members any info of the sale.
    ...OTOH this may be very rare, and "buyer beware" adequately covers the unfortunate few.

    I purge through the Marketplace threads every 2/3 weeks or so and close the ones that have sold (mostly the older ones) and it takes a bit to do so. If the OP requests to close the post, we do so. Personally I don't forsee a problem with your statement especially if the seller is not forthright. As I said, the success rate of transactions in the Marketplace is damn good.

    That's exactly what I didn't do.

    I just now made the change for all groups, so everyone should see that Administrative link now. PM me with any problems.

    Like Kanaka916 said, just PM one of the mods should a situation like that arise.

    I suppose you could always start a new thread in which you include a link to the old (closed) thread.
