Questions about trading

Hi!

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it`s sort of a newcomer question, so here goes:

1. When is a tradelist/thread concidered dead?
(When you close it, no activity in a given amount of time, etc?)

2. Can I simply make a post about removing an item from my list if I want to offer it in another trade, or should I close the thread If I wish to do so?

I guess much of this comes down to common sense, just wanna make sure I don`t violate any rules in the trade forums.

(have read the rules btw)

Thx!

Probably get a better answer in the trade forums, but ill give it a shot.
1) a thread IMO is dead once it scrolls of the front page. Its harder to get to, and nobodys responded to it in a while.
2) Just make a post in your thread saying XXX isnt availble anymore, unless you can still edit your first post (the forums allow you to edit within ~1 hr) Ive seen multiple people do this to their trade threads, often adding and deleting items to their ISO and FT lists.

So if my tradelist is dead and I have several changes to the it, it would be ok to close it and make a new one?

Thx! cleared up things quite a bit!

As I recall, you cannot post the same item in two separate threads in a 72-hour period. If you need to update or make changes to a trade thread, you must wait six hours from the time you made your original thread. You may make a separate post regradless of when the first post was made as long as it does not contain the same items for trade(I believe).

Ok, So i guess closing my 4 day old tradelist and making a Needlist including items from the old as offers would be allright, then?

Thx, think I`m starting to get the hang of it now!
