    Is there a way to edit or delete our for sale posts?

    I can do anything. What is your request? I think its a power. I've seen others edit their posts.

    We can edited it but can't delete it though cause there are still old post that are still up.

    I can't edit my for sale post after 120 minutes. It might be nice to change the permissions on that forum to allow indefinite editing and deleting of your posts. That way, if something sells, you can delete the post.

    I can't quote anyone. I click the reply on someone else's post but it doesn't show up in my post.

    Same with mine many times I have tried to quote a post and it will not do it. Also can't edit a post like Eric said after 2 hours. Use to be able to but can't any more. Makes life much simpler to delete something off the original post and not have to keep typing in everything that's sold.

    Would it be at all helpful if I created a separate, easy to edit website for the club that allowed people to list items they have for sale? I could even add an auction feature in addition to a straight list. Each person would be able to log in and list their own items, deleting items as they were sold. I'll come up with an example and post the link.

    MAAH is mostly funded by the 20% from the auction at the meetings. I think the separate website would only work if MAAH got a portion of the sale. This isn't a for profit business, but if we want to have speakers and cool stuff, we need money going into the club.

    Megan, I suggest bringing your website to the Executive Board.

    Like Cassandra said I think it depends on your permissions assigned to you in the forum.

    Just in case there was a misunderstanding, I wasn't planning on taking a cut of the sales. I thought it could be a perk of membership. Or maybe people who want to list on the site could pay the club a yearly fee. If the club has a PayPal account, we could have the payments go to the club which would then write the seller out a check each month for their percentage of the sales. The auction plugin I mentioned can automatically take off a certain percentage. There is a "Buy It Now" feature, just like Ebay and Aquabid, if people don't want to mess with people bidding on their fish. Maybe that would be the way to go. How do I bring the site to the Executive Board? Should I send them each a link or would I present the site to them at a meeting. That might be best as there may be questions that aren't easily answered via email.

    No misunderstanding. I'm an accountant. It's all about money with me ;) I just wanted to get that important information out before we get ahead of ourselves.
    The new board will be announced tomorrow. Let them settle in and send a PM to all of 'em.

    Megan, let's get you on the Website committee, get you the rights to make changes, and then see what you can to to adjust the permissions on what we have before we jump whole hog into a new website just to address the permissions issue. There is some history behind the way we have things set up now.

    Megan are you going to be able to make it to the EB and Planning meeting on Monday night?

    Yes. I am coming to present on the location search. I also have a start on a new website, which I did for a class, but that should probably wait until the web committee meets. If possible, I'd like to meet before the Feb EB meeting in Feb. I won't be able to attend as I have a class MW evenings, but someone else could do so pretty easily.
