i was going to do something about it recently when the general section was getting
stuffed with ebay links of all sorts but it calmed down a bit. now this issue is being
raised again and i'm happy to say that these are banned now and should be placed
(or moved) to offtopics, where they belong to really, as it's usuall some crap cars
being posted and then people making fun of it...

the same goes for all the other websites and webpages that fit the description above.

if anyone disagrees, let me know.

What if its a genuinely interesting car being linked to? Surely that belongs in General Car chat?

i think all Ebay links should be in offtopics. a good proportion of the time they are for there for amusement.

If its a genuinely interesting car then i assume the user will have used their brain and already have it advertised here anyway!

Cheers for the pointer mate- I`ll not be doing that again!
Though it wasn't an amusing motor- it was the one i bought, and had put it there just to let anyone who was interested know a bit about the car rather than copy and paste the info into my already quite long post.

You live and learn eh? lol

and another reminder!

ebay links are confined to off-topics (and for sale, providing they're your items).

Ebay auctions get deactivated way before topics get deleted from General Car Chat,
so they just end up clogging this sub-forum and are of no real value to begin with.

Jazzturnbull won't have access to Natasha's Off Topics section as he's still Passenger status.

You can't put eBay links in General Car Chat (well you can, you just aren't supposed to, but nobody bothers about the rules these days), but you can still post a topic asking for advice about the car. Just state what the eBay listing number is, and then we can find it ourselves.
