    Thanks very much for this. So many times I have looked at a thread to find at the bottom things have been sold, or the seller has posted it is sold without using the thread tools to close the thread.
    Saves a lot of time!

    Any way to make this a "Sticky" post so it always stays on the top of the page? Would be helpful I think.

    Thank you Fred, That's a good point.

    I'm assuming that in order to make any post a 'sticky' we would need the forum administrator to do it. As he's never around there's nothing we can do about it.

    This is good information. Since I saw there were "SOLD" markings, I thought all posts where items were sold would have them, but that's not always the case. This post should help everyone mark their posts as sold when they are, and make it easier for readers to know which posts still have items available. I agree with one of the earlier comments, that this should be a sticky post so it doesn't get lost over time, and we don't have to keep bumping it. Thanks.

    I'll bump this useful thread with a slightly related point and a quibble of mine. I certainly don't object to members posting 'pm sent' in for sale threads here. However, if you are going to do that, you really should be ready to buy the item or close to it. Recently, I've been contacted by pm senters who only had a question about the item or had a trade to propose. The pens in question going to them were hardly sure things, and in each case they didn't end up buying them.

    As we know, not everyone is aware of the red 'sold' thingy this thread is dedicated to, so seeing 'pm sent' could easily throw someone off as to the availability of an item. Again, this is only a quibble, not something to be angry or outraged over. But please do be ready to send money before you post your 'pm sent.'
