I will chime in as well as to what a wonderful help all the ads no matter if For Sale
or Sold. When I first made the decision to buy I knew nothing about them, Other than they were cute! By being able to read all the ad's and other posters comments about the particular trailer for sale
, I was able to get a idea of what to look for and what to watch out for. Of course until I became active in my own search, jumping in and spending hours looking at eggs, did I really understand all that it takes for the wealth of information compiled in the referrals section. The first one I bought, I found, immediately come the the referral section and there it was, (Gregs Fast!) he had posted it 20 minutes before I found it in my daily searching. I was desperate to find one so bought it. Well a week later found the one I really wanted, and Thankfully was able to buy it before it was posted here. Thankfully it happened to be a few days before Greg posted it, cause he was out of town. But for me the referral section was the reason I was able to find our first and second egg. Of course the other sections of the forum have wonderful people posting useful tips, hints, etc and may not be as active at getting the info that the referral section does because it's ever changeing, fresh, current, info. But that is just my opinion. and wonder if there is an issue for others, could the SOLD Sign be posted in a bright color/or bold, so that way we who love the information would still have access but for those who don't want to take the time to look at a sold ad could just scroll on by?
Greg, Don't appoligize! The time you take to search is sooooooooooo un-understood. I know! I was getting carpile tunnel just searching for myself. But I was determined to find one. But had you not built up that section, I know myself and others would be very mis-informed consummers. Thank You for all you have done! Wonderful to see your new web site! Your comitment to helping other enjoy the journey of fiberglass is priceless. Best of Luck with it! Robin
What I think is sad, is so many people check out the refferal section during their search for a egg, yet they don't come back and post that they bought it! How sad. If they only knew what it takes to search thru all the crap posted everyday (craigslist, local for sale ads, newspaper, ebay,) to be able to post the few possibilities for sale they would be thankful for all the possibilities posted for them and at least come back and say hey it was me who bought it! And maybe Thank the person who posted the ad so that they could buy it. Now that being said, when I was in my search I always posted ad's I found that I wanted to pass along to others because it wasn't right for me or even now when I am bored I will post a few and there were a couple of people who did say hey I bought it, and I did get a Pm Thanking me for one he bought. But that was it. I can't imagine how many ads Greg and others who post on a regular basis yet, I have rarely seen a Thank You and even fewer Hey I bought it! It truely is very time consumming search and I for one will be sad to see less new for sale referrals from the master at referrals "Greg"
