Eden was going to close down the classifieds altogether is what I heard. Instead, they just removed the banner and easy to find links to it. I just type in the address and still see good stuff from time to time. I recently grabbed some great stuff from Carrie Ann (a former admin from here whom I and others really liked!). I got a bunch from her back in the Summer, too. So, what it looks like is there are less scammers on there then before, maybe?
Speaking of scammers...I want to caution people that there have been instances in the past where people got ripped off, so please be wary. (And that is in NO WAY meant in regard to Lvstoplay! We know her from onsite pretty well, so she's safe
) I am mentioning it because there are so many new people and some may think that Eden vets the posts, but they do not have anything to do with it other than providing the space to post. If anyone runs across trouble, please post the info on the forum to warn others! I would even post on the classifieds with a fake post that really just warns people, not selling something (as I have seen done before). You should contact Eden, too and while they can't help you, they can certainly boot the offender off. (Also, if you use Paypal, you should have some protection, I think.)
