Pahoda Spotting - "Post here if you've seen a Pagoda somewhere"

Do for sale postings count?  We have a for sale forum and an advertiser forum, right?

If you are posting a link to a for-sale vehicle then it needs to go into the commercial advertising.

If you are posting your own vehicle (but not a link to a commercial site like BAT) then it goes into the for-sale area with a price listed.

If you are posting your own vehicle for sale but you have it listed elsewhere on a commercial site and you are linking it then it also needs to go into the commercial area.

I think the OP is suggesting a third option…. “Pagodas for sale by third parties” - so the dealer cars, Craigslist finds, BaT listings. We all like virtually picking holes in cars while marvelling at the values (supporting our man-maths)

Thw OP (me) saw this one never got moved. I thought there were others, but I think this is it.  My post was a bit of a knee jerk reaction.

Rodd,


Just from a Moderators perspective, this is a classic example of why we normally move them out of the General area as the original link is broken and photos have now gone so there is nothing to see in the first instance.  Maybe I was away on that day and did not see it in my daily review and shuffle of posts but within a day or so, the new owner came on the site saying he had purchased it and added some more photos of his new car so the post was then left there as a discussion on his new acquisition then followed.
