If i want to sell a keyboard
« on: Mon, 03 September 2012, 19:29:05 »
If i want to sell a keyboard is there a way to do it on this site? I can't seem to find a thread. I might be willing to part with Macally 96 keyboard. It is an Alps keyboard that i think uses the white ones. It is in great condition and i am also going to include the adapter that makes it USB ready. Thanks.

You make a thread in the classifieds section. I think you need at least 50 posts before you can see/post in the classifieds though.

There have been so many threads about this in this section. I think people should starting looking for information themselves before posting on the same topic over and over again.

Used to be 50, is now 60 in a big orange font: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=33429.0
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

That's interesting, I bought a keyboard in the classifieds already... And I was able to see threads and reply. I didn't try to start a new thread, so I don't know if that would work. But maybe the restriction that has been set up isn't working properly? I don't know who to tell to look into it.

you only need whatever number of posts to create new threads. afaik there is either a low or non-existent post-count requirement for viewing and replying.

Ahh gotcha. Like I said, I hadn't tried posting a new thread. But in the link rowdy posted it makes it seem like you can't even see the classifieds haha.

In the paragraph immediately above the big orange bit, it says "At some point (currently 50 100 60 posts, but subject to change without notice), you will join the ranks of the Full Members, soldiers of fortune who are allowed to submit NEW topics to the classifieds and group buy forums.".
