Recently I posted a comment on the forum of a particular card game advertising that I had cards of the set for sale that I wanted to sell through the GeekMarket. The thread got some responses, but was very quickly deleted by a Moderator. I received the following message:
Arranging sales through the forums is not permitted. Please use the BGG Marketplace section of the game page. Geekbay may also be used for lots for which the Marketplace isn't well suited (such as CCG collections, large collections all being sold together, etc). Any sales should note that they will go through the Marketplace. Thank you.
I wasn't aware of this (particularly since I have seen similar threads here on various CCG sub-forums).
I am not contesting the deletion of my thread, but just want to clarify what is allowed. I had not yet posted the item on the GeekMarket when I made that thread.
In the future, when I want to sell through the GeekMarket, am I allowed to alert users of the forums that I have added an item to the GeekMarket in the forum of that particular game? I am particularly looking to sell various lots of collectible card games (CCG) that I have, for which people might not ordinarily check the GeekMarket regularly.
