Yeah, this would be a great idea to do... I've got a few things I'd get rid of just for shipping.... Already done it for a guy for some coax mids..
on diyma its just a thread that has been stickyed
It would be nicer if it was a section in the classifieds.
There can be no real rules, other than one person cannot take from the thread more than once a month.
Trying to tell someone they can't take something without posting something is a lil ridiculous. They are coming to the free thread cause they have no monies and no gear.
Greed always overcomes these threads. People with post counts of 100 or less come in to take. Heck, people will make accounts to get a freebie.
People who don't need the stuff...all the old timers.....are the ones who post up gear. So it is never really a win-win situation.
I want some free ish.
would be nice if you receive something maybe you could leave positive feedback for that person, this would be a easy way for someone with 0 feedback to gain some trust on this forum
anywaysm you could ask a lot, but some of the "rules" are a little far-fetched. yah, like cl, other sites have functioning freebies sections. there is nothing wrong with the one on caco, other than it is not real active. pretty simple, post up what you have for free. "sell" to who you want. if it's the first guy, so be it. if you want it to be someone who really wants, needs, could put it to good use, or otherwise "fits" as a recipient, that's up to you. i do agree, just saying "gimmie stuff" guys should post in the wtb section, not the frrebie. otherwise the whole section would be flooded with gimmies. it really is that simple to work. i also like the "broken and non-working" and speaker/amp parts sections at caco. i'm looking at those constantly. maybe all 3-4 new sub-forums in one section would be a good addition. people might be more inclined to post up free stuff, given a section for it
I have RF T2000 blown. You want it pay ship. or pick it up if around Pittsburgh
