I posted a request to try and find out how much my old trolling motor is worth and it was pulled because it sounded like a sales ad. I did not mean for it to come out this way. I just wanted to use the resources of this site to find out what the motor would be worth so I can put it up for sale with an ad. I got 2 responses and than the post was pulled without me getting much of an answer to my question. What did I do wrong?

Obviously you haven't read your PM I sent back to you.

Your post is on the swap board.....even though it's against site rules to post without a price.

I helped you out..........thanks for complaining.

Well this brings up a good question. We have have two minn kotas and would like to know what to advertise them in the paper for and would like some help on price on here. How do I ask the question properly without trying to sell on here?

Simple...ask the question as if you were looking at one, but didn't want to over pay. Ask what people think a good price is for it.

Once you say your selling itthen it becomes a for sale ad, which isn't allowed on the message boards.
