« on: January 24, 2010, 10:01:40 PM »
I've come across at least 5 really nice Martin's cages for sale on craigslist this week end; one was a Ruud for $80, a ferret englander for $150, a ferret penthouse for $90, and then some, I keep thinking, wow! I bet some ppl on goosemoose would like to know about these!! so, can we post the link here or not?

I thought I saw somewhere that you had to be the seller and then you could post YOUR CL listing ??!  ??? so this is why I'm asking since I am not quite sure and cant find where I read that  :doh:

oh well, on the other hand, I know most ppl looking for a cage will def. look on their local craigs list :)

BTW, I found that handy dandy search engine "tempest search" and it searches ALL craigslist everywhere!
vveerrrryyyyy nnniiiiiiiccceeeee (in a Borat way...LOL)

We actually prefer that you do not.

ONLY the people in possession of the item for sale should be making postings in this section. Period. This is a service for our members, not only to buy items, but to sell items, whether for profit or to rehome cages, accessories, etc. It's not "free advertising" for Craigslist. They have plenty of exposure all on their own, for better or worse. ;)

Thanks!

Very good response. I have a question though. What if a member here is in search of a cage or some specific item. Would it be ok for someone to search for items in that users area and post them? Like if user A made a post "In search of FN in (insert location)", could I search that location on google/CL and respond to their thread?

Thanks for the future response and clarification :D

I would think so -- lots of people fail at the Google, so it's kind of the nice thing to do. If not, you can use my new favorite site, lmgtfy.com. :yelcutelaugh:

You can send them a private message with the information. :)
