To all Message Board Users: This will advise we have opened today a new “Want to Buy” forum, where you can post a request for any horologically related item that you would like to acquire, including clocks, watches, chronometers, tools, etc. This forum is located in the “What’s It Worth” main forum at the bottom of the forum index page HERE. Please note that the first 90 days will be a trial period, and we will be closely monitoring and evaluating the new forum during that time for possible changes, modifications, or enhancements, as well as to its continuation. Problems that may be encountered during this period will be promptly addressed and corrected as needed to improve your experience in its use. Should you have questions or comments, please post them to this thread where we will do our best to respond. All users may access this forum at any time, whether to post an item you want to acquire or to search through the existing requests to see if you may have something to offer that someone else is looking for. For Users who “Want to Buy”: Each user who wants to use this forum may create ONE thread where they may place individual posts containing images and descriptions of each item they want to buy. Please use the following guidelines for your thread and posts: The thread you create by making your first post in the forum is your personal thread, to be used for all your postings. This first post in the thread should include personal information, an explanation of your areas of interest, or other introductions. If you delete this post it will also delete the thread, so please take care. You may then post requests for multiple items; please request only one item in each post in your thread. Your post should include a complete description and may include images or other attachments to help describe what you are looking for. All posts will be shown in order of newest post first. Only you will be able to post in your thread, and you cannot post in any other thread. After making a “Want to Buy” post, your thread title may need to be edited to match what is now in your thread. To edit the title, click on “Thread Tools” in the menu bar at the top of your thread, then click on “Edit thread”. If not already selected in your title, please select a prefix that describes your item from the prefix list. Also include in the title a brief description of each item you post. After making the changes you need, both for prefixes and title descriptions, then click on “Save Changes”. Each time you add or delete a post, your thread title should be edited if necessary to match what is in your thread. You may edit any post you have made at any time. To edit a post click on the “Edit” box in the menu at lower left of your post. The text will pop up and you can add or remove text, images, etc. using the normal posting tools. You can delete a post when you have acquired or no longer want that item. To delete a post, click in the small box at the upper left of that post and you will get a menu that includes the delete button. Click on that and follow the instructions to delete. All discussions and transactions for each item must be conducted privately, e.g. by PM/Conversation, Email, social media, or other means. Normal Message Board rules apply for all posts made in this forum. For Users who have Items to Offer: All threads in this forum are searchable. We are encouraging the use of prefixes to facilitate your searches; you may also use the Message Board search tool. Following are guidelines for your assistance: At the top of the forum is a list that shows prefixes that describe particular types of items, e.g. (Clocks), (Watches), (Tools), etc. that are already posted in the forum. These tell you what is being requested in the forum and also show the number of threads that contain at least one of each category. Click on the prefix of your choice, and it will sort the forum threads to create a listing of only the threads in the forum that have items in that category. You can then easily check the titles to see what may be of interest, and open any of them to look at individual posts. Should you see something requested that you may be interested to offer, you can then click on the OP’s avatar and send that user a PM/Conversation to start communicating with the OP. As noted earlier, all discussions and transactions for each item must be conducted privately, e.g. by PM/Conversation, Email, social media, or other means. Should you wish to look at a different prefix, click on the “Back” button of your browser to bring up the opening page of the forum. Then click on the next prefix you want to explore. You can also search for specific items such as “Waltham Riverside” by using the Message Board search tool. Click on the magnifying glass icon at the top right of your page, add your search criteria in the space at the top of the dialog box and click on “Search Forum”. Once again, should you have problems or questions about using the forum and making your posts, please post your questions in this thread.
