Default No one following guidelines

You know what sucks? Clicking through every thread just to see where the sellers are located instead of tagging their city in the thread title. I see the guidelines dont "require" it but....why...

Can we start enforcing this?

Need help enforcing this?

As soon as you click the ad to see what they’re selling , the location is in the upper right hand corner.

All classifieds ads require the following information:
- Location (in the thread title, within the ad, or in the seller’s profile)

Are you seriously that lazy ?!?!? It’s one click to open up the thread to see the location.

What does it have to do with lazy. It's a quality of life improvement. It's narrow minded replies like this that are keeping this forum on life support. Back in the day this forum was alive and thriving with posts in all areas. Now it's basically a buy/sell page.

No one is interested in contributing to this site. We invited several 'expert level' members to have their own forum, provide tips and answer questions and all of them declined. We had a POTM contest every month, until not one single picture was submitted, two months in a row. We had a TOTQ contest, until every single tank that won ended up crashing, or being shut down soon after, only to have the contest be labeled as cursed. We had the resignation of several moderators, which piled more work into the remaining ones. We had massive complaints from paying Vendors about members who were constantly selling frags. We changed the buy and sell rules to favour the Vendors, which then ticked off the members. We lost major Vendors as paying sponsors to free media sites like Facebook. We've got members who don't even know how to upload pictures because they have no idea how to navigate BB sites, are use to instant picture uploads to social media sites, and can't be bothered to learn. We've got hundreds of thousands of pictures lost to Photobucket because of their new 'pay to use' bullshit. We were promised a New Canreef platform that was a hybrid of BB, Facebook and other social media sites, that would be easier to contribute to, and instantly share pics, locations, tags etc, only to have its development completely aborted 2 years ago. We had Alberta's oil field employment nose dive, and we lost a ton of contributing members to that. Most newer members think growing and selling coral is going to make them a ton of money, and are in the hobby for profit (haha fools), they are more than welcome to use here, FB Coral Hoarders and other FB pages to sell stuff.

The buy and sell guidelines were discussed at length when they were written, and we are fine with the location being either in the title, in the thread, or the sellers profile.
