Re: [friends-1046] Photo group "policies"

You could set up a separate Yahoo group (or similar).  People could post both wanted and for sale items, and members of the Meetup could either just not subscribe to the Yahoo group at all if they're not interested, or subscribe for daily or weekly digests, or even to be notified instantly when someone posts, depending on their level of interest.  It would be a separate "group" to maintain, but it's free and seems like it would meet everyone's needs, both those who don't want to be bothered, those who only want to buy/sell high-end items (they can ignore the rest), and those who want to buy/sell/trade/give away random things like filters or whatever.

Interesting idea, John and a good one.  We have an announcements and discussions forum.  But I can’t create a page, only a Meetup.  Maybe I could create a Meetup that’s a trade event, but with no set time.  People can put in items under comments. 
 
If you have a chance look at other photo Meetup groups and see what they’re doing.  I’ll write Meetup and see if they have an idea.

Can we have an Items for Sale page? I have a bunch of film stuff that might be of interest to somebody, older point and shoots, hybrids, etc. Then, we might not have to limit ourselves to the sales and purchase of high end stuff.

Hi All,

I'm asking for feedback on using our mailing list for selling camera gear.  I like to do what works best for the group as a whole.  For example, the decision was made two years ago to ban commercial advertising by individual members.

I think it's alright for a member to offer their personal gear here, but limit it to higher end gear and not do it very often.  This is the first time I've utilized this list in three years to sell a camera.  If we all get inundated with daily emails about point and shoots, filters, lenses, flashes and camera bags, then we'll go to a zero ad policy.

I get a LOT of emails from members and I always try to reply personally rather than to the entire group.  If you hit "reply" your response goes back to the ENTIRE group.  I've done that a couple of times unwittingly and to my regret.  If you want to respond to someone selling a camera, please respond only to them.

Thanks,

Robert
