1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    i just received the following e-mail regarding my items on the 'garage sale' post:

    'Hello seller,
    i am interested in your (GARAGE FOR SALE )posted for sale.and am so interested with the description.so i will like to know if is still available for sale?kindly let me know your last price you willing to sell.await your urgent response.'

    This seemed very fishy to me.......I will not answer this e-mail.

    Use your own judgement regarding an e-mail of this type if you get one!!!!!

    Regards,
    Bernie

    Ooh, I'd like to get in on the Nigerian inheritance thing. Just tell me what I should do, and where I should send my hard earned money, and to whom.

    For fun, I answer in some type of made up (bogus) language. Just write back in consistent giberish. If I've done ok at that, I get a response asking what language I speak! Then I delete the response. Figure I can phish back too!

    I am guilty of sticking my email on certain threads, but prudence dictates that we should respond to each other via PM to swap email addresses and phone numbers...

    I cringe every time I see someone just openly post a phone number. That is an invitation to at a minimum some jerk on planet Earth screwing around/pranks, etc...
