Dear members, a friendly reminder to all members of the following.....

Hope you guys can help to keep this forum a "tidy" place...... Without the duplicating or threads with similar topic all over the forum.

2) Kindly avoid creating new threads as and when possible if it is not necessary, by posting on a current thread/s will always lead to better respond due to the followers of any particularly interesting thread/s. Spare a thoughts for the rest, and their feelings when the forum is filled with similarly related threads.


3) Also be reminded that NO sales related thread/post should be posted in the Mobile Comm forum at all time, includes all the Nokia, SE, MOTO, and others supporter forums. This includes sales, resale, advertising, spamming, re-link of sales thread from another forum, etc.

That's why, IMHO, we need each thread to discuss a specific topic, not several.
and stick to it.

Hi there...
Try using our Buy/Sell service, alternatively can make use of the Computer Garage.

Question

i got a question... let's say u want to organize a mass order for say some bluetooth stuff, then where do you post it? can post a mass order here? coz if you put here instead of classified or garage, then it's more relevant to the people here, right?

just like to know how was the discussion. i feel that Singapore21 recommendation is pretty valid. it makes its easier to follow certain threads.

there could be brand categories followed by models.

Brand : Samsung
Model : V200, E700
thread topic: bugs, firmware, technical specifications.

then another category could be general where if the topics is not specific to brand or technical questions. topics such as 6230 v E398 or price plans...

but then again, the admin will have more tasks on their hands as they will need to create more sub categories also have to move certain threads to the right forums in case they are placed wrongly.

currently some threads have progressed to more than 1K replies. it is quite a daunting task to search through all the posts for just one or two pieces of information. when users find it too troublesome, they tend to start another thread asking for same or similar informaiton. then some forumers will post say question ask before. search for it. it is a catch 20-20 situation.

If you are referring to commercial selling. You can use our Premier Classified Ads service.
