Say a seller has a firearm, ammo, memorabilia, whatever for sale.

Two guys want that same item...what is the rule for deciding the outcome...?

First one to POST "I'll take it"...followed by a PM

(OR)

First one to PM the seller, followed by a POST : "I'll take it"

This is happening right now on another forum...

Here's the story:

Seller starts a thread...posting : I got X, Y, and Z for $$

Me and another guy see X...had to be at the same second...so

While I was typing a POST in that WTS thread...saying "I'll take X"...the other guy wanting the same item PM'd the seller. Then I PM'd the seller, exactly 1 minute behind the other guys PM, and lost the bid...and, the best part, the other guy never posted in the thread.

Usually the protocol is:

Claim the item in the WTS thread ( thus time stamped ) via the Post ... "I'll take X"

Then PM the Seller to arrange the details on buying X....

Then the Seller marks X with the code...SPF (SOLD Pending Funds ) in the thread. When trans action is completed between buyer and seller...either seller marks item sold on list...or removes item from list. If it's just one item, subject bar is marked sold, so others know.

Suggest we put it in black & white...one way or another...don't matter to me...so it's clear and concise.
