Want to help us fund the site and time spent by the people behind it then use the button below.

We are not a registered charity so you can't claim it back but it helps pay for the costs of running the site and improving the features.

You can also help by looking at the advert on the side menus as we get paid for these BUT please only look at adverts you are interested in, you never know you might find something you never knew existed.

New Features Votes

Well we have more features that are being requested. They are mainly two parts that need some more details for people to help make a chose over.

Submission of adverts being open to all users has been a long held feature of the site. With the demand to tighter requirements for security from the browsers makers, who put them in charge, the older PC's are no longer able to work. Do we need to confirm that a user is who they say they are when submitting a advert, No you do not and only required to follow a few basic rules. The site is free to use and because we take no fee or get involved with the exchange we have nothing to report to the HMRC that they can not already see. We do not check if an item is stolen because no items are in our procession and if the users see a questionable advert they are free to ask the police to check it out for free too. I have only banned one person spamming the advert site with multiple adverts for singular small items and has since never misbehaved.
So the options are pointless because you have make your mind? No, I want people to have the choice to help decide is it needs changing. The options are simple to understand what is being asked for, should people be allowed to submit an advert without having to make an account or should we limit it to just For Sate, Both For Sate & Wanted or All three need an account.

Now the big question, have you ever put an advert on the site and being asked to remove it for sale so they can but it once you tell them the state it is in. As the most moan about thing, they never know when an advert is going to go live, I found the backdoor and closed it, no  peeking. This means that by the time the scammer gets the advert you have already sold it, how I would like most people cuss Adam for listing it 2 minutes after checking it today but the scammer will continue to offer more if you take it off sale, if you respond they have a live one and will pester and all of a sudden you get so many adverts. I sold a CD it looks like a CD and I only take PayPal, mention sending a cheque and it dies before even finishing the connection, sorry for those that don't like PayPal I will pay the fee for the safety.
So the options are not that simple to explain. The Don't change it is a dead option because we need to beat the scammers but we need a system that is better then trying to read an image, the bot can read now Google is too smart. So option:

  1. Message box that you put your name and email in and then it sends this to the advertiser but they only get the fact you are interned to talk to them over the advert. The server fills out the advert details from the database and the sender has not seen the advertisers email, the advertiser will then get an email from the server but the email will have a reply-to header with the senders name and email.
  2. Message box that you put your name, email and a short message in and then it sends this to the advertiser but they get the a short message. The server fills out the advert details from the database and the sender has not seen the advertisers email, the advertiser will then get an email from the server but the email will have a reply-to header with the senders name and email.
  3. Each advert is given an email address, when you send an email to this email it will check the message for spam and remove any it finds. It will then remove all html code and only the plain text section will be kept. The advertiser will then be sent an email from the server with the advert details and the plain text from the sender, the reply-to will be from the senders email so we know it is valid. Also in the message sent the server will be a link, when you click on the link it will take you to the homeworkshop site where you can block the person from sending any more emails to that advert, all your current adverts or any new adverts. If a email is blocked by 5 separate advertisers it will be blocked from all but the administrators.
