    Hi all

    I'm selling my entire CD collection of over 1000 CDs. I recently made a post but was unable to list individual prices per CD. So I gave one overall price, adding that I was willing to split.

    The thread was removed. I think it was for that reason, although no-one actually told me when I asked.

    Anyhow, that was then and this is now. I am going to put up a batch of CDs with individual prices. As time goes on, some will sell (hopefully!) and some new ones will be added when I find time to decide on prices.

    Can anyone advise me as to the best way of doing this? Are there any circumstances in which the OP can be edited or is that always a no-no? I just thought that without being able to amend the OP, the thread will soon become a complete mess and will be very hard for people to see what is and isn't available.

    Any tips would be great.

    Cheers

    Max

    That's what I did before (but without prices).... So if I do it again but with prices, it will be "allowable"? Or do the prices need to be stated in the post/thread directly?

    I would say list them in groups by price. Each one of these are $8 a piece, these are $7, ect. That would work wouldn't it?

    What exactly does "listings" refer to? If the prices are on the spreadsheet I link to rather than in the thread I post, would that be ok?

    Is copying and pasting the spread sheet into the FREE listing on this site that hard? I mean, it may take a little formatting, but it should be a matter of a few minutes. :shrug:

    Oh no, it's not a case of it being hard. And I am not trying to be lazy. It is more that I have not figured prices out yet. I was going to do it on an as and when requested basis. But bearing in mind the rules of the forum, I thought I could start be getting the prices for a few handfuls of CDs. Then - time permitting - I can do more and more CDs. The spreadsheet will grow accordingly. In the meantime, as CDs sell I will also be able to take them off the spreadsheet. So anyone visiting the thread can simply click on a link in the OP to see what is currently available, rather than having to wade through dozens of posts of me adding new CDs and for sale, and stating which have sold. That could soon get real messy and convoluted.

    Hope that explains things..... If it is not permitted, then so be it. Thanks to those who have bought so far and I hope you enjoy what you've got.

    Hi again

    I'm still unsure if I can or can't start a new thread with a link to an online spreadsheet which lists my CDs with prices? Would someone mind clarifying please?
