    Default Changes on Audiogon

    When did it start costing $6 to post a "wanted" on the 'Gon?
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Damn. Better get to selling those last few items!

    Great, now I'll pay $8 each for the priviledge of receiving lowballs, tire kicking, and stupid questions :p

    Edit: Oops, somehow confused "wanted" with "for sale" :p

    ZB,

    Hmm, must have been recent. I posted a wanted add about two weeks ago (or more) and wasnt asked for a penny.

    In order to post something to "sell", but it's been free to post a classified wanting to buy an item -- at least up until about a week ago.

    Absolutely. The years of cheap $2 ads was nice while it lasted.

    Ah, gotcha. I didn't notice the "wanted" part of the question...

    What sucks is that it's the same price no matter if your selling a $10000 item or a $30 item. Makes it hard to just sell a pair of Signal Cable interconnects or a set of Vibrapods or something.

    Last time I attempted to respond to a "wanted" ad I was directed to post a new for sale listing ($6 charge). Used to be they just forwarded your offer to the wanted ad lister.

    Oops. Sorry, I just tried it and it was letting me send a reply to a wanted without starting a new classified. Must have done something wrong last time I tried.

    You didn't do anything wrong. Audiogon recently changed the way you post a wanted ad.
