Open invitation

#1 Post by axmaxwell » Sun Jan 06, 2019 1:15 pm

This is me posting an open invitation for United States based members of the ThinkPad forum to come and join my Facebook page. It is called:


Membership is still quite small, but we are really looking to expand. In searching Facebook for groups of people selling computer parts, I found that most of the groups were based overseas and that a lot of people were just listing old junk. My cousin and I moderate this page and do not allow BS posts or foreign people trying to sell you t-shirts and other junk. I am very strict with my rules and trying to sell anything other than computer parts repeatedly gets people banned.

Hope to see some of you join.


P.S. I've got nothing against foreigners. I recognize that some of the top contributing members to the ThinkPad forum are not from the United States and if you shoot me a message I would be willing to let you join.

Rather than go join that useless spyware outfit Eff-book, we have a much better, private place for selling stuff!
It's called: Marketplace - Forum Members only

I'm considering to join just to browse but I don't have a link and not really going to sift thru pages of the same/similar name to find it...

Has there been successful sales there? How would one get reputation on facebook vs how Offer Up, Etsy, eBay & Amazon Marketplace handles things?
I don't mean to sound crude, it's just that I had terrible success in completing a computer deal/repair via facebook than on sites I mention & craigslist.
Additionally I really don't trust any sales outside of TPF, or eBay.
