    Hi there

    We can certainly help but like you, not sure whether the forum allows for a detailed reply.....

      1, No spamming or unauthorised advertising of goods for sale etc.. This includes private messaging groups of people without permission to advertise something..

      Which bit is ambiguous?

        Right, so our offer of assistance - is that authorised or not authorised in your eyes?

        You talk about ambiguity - but there are plenty of posts that we have seen that appear to contradict, and contradict again, the rules. And thanks for making this so enjoyable by the way......

          oooh, is that just a hint of sarcasm?

          Is the enjoyable bit baiting the moderators until they ban you?

            You seem to be here to promote your website, and the rules do not allow this from unestablished members. I fail to see your cause for upset just because you have had to be shown the forum rules more than once............and you are correct when you believe I don't enjoy this - I have a business to run as well, and can do without new forum members arguing the toss over rules that have stood the test of time, and have been adhered to by the hundreds of existing members. If you don't like the way this forum works, why are you so insistent upon remaining? Moderators have an - unpaid - job to do, we also have other things to do, so when we get PMs accusing us of sarcasm because we point people to the rules we don't play nicely. Either join in with the rest of the members, get 25 posts, and treat this as a discussion forum rather than a platform, or find somewhere else.
            This would normally have been a PM, but you made it public.

                I think forums can be snobby, bit cliquey
                you can post links to other sites but not advertsise your own I think, to avoid selling. I sdont know if this is to be fair to the paid advertisers or to avoid ppl being sold to, prob both, but there are a lot of adverts!

                I don't go on the forum to buy things but it is chatty and nice. sometimes get tips of good deals etc.

                  I don't want to comment on the rules and regs for this forum but I'd like to say I have in the past joined a few forums but never really enjoyed them till I joined this one and I've definatly never stayed with a forum as long as I have this one

                  we all support each other , good days , bad days, highs and lows.The mods do a great job keeping the spammers out and making it a real online community

                    Basically, I'm looking to buy some mixed lots of beads.

                    I'm currently looking on ebay and at a few beadsites but the thing I really hate is that you sometimes get 9 of one and just 1 of another. I need something a bit more even and sellers aren't always the most helpful about giving you a bit more even amounts! (Which is fair enough, but it does mean they lose a sale, lol)

                    I'm looking for lots that have 5-7 of each - no more, no less! And I need about 50-70 beads in total. (I don't have to buy them all from one person, it just makes it cheaper!)

                    SO... If any bead sellers or bead makers would be willing to help a lass out, or even if any random people are trying to flog their leftovers think they may be able to help, please get in touch!

                    I'm looking for slightly chunkier beads - glass or lampwork type stuff.

                    Thanks in advance!

                    P.S. I do realise I could buy small amounts/single beads - but it always ends up working out crazy expensive
                    CAN OF WORMS! But id actually be interested in this sort of bead mix too!

                        Just got really fed up with some ebay sellers acting as if I'd just asked them to cut off the heads of their children and send them to me! Seriously - some really bitchy responses, makes me wonder how the hell these people survive in business if that's how they think they should talk to potential customers? I don't care if they're a good future deal - talk to me like I'm something you trod in and you're blacklisted! I'd rather spend more and get good customer service than deal with them again...

                        It's not even like I asked that much of them... I only asked if they ever did mixes of certain things (e.g. not just one colour) or if they could do me a special "mix" of exactly what I need (that I'd happily pay more for!") I wouldn't mind so much if they were polite in their rejections!

                        Thought people here might be a tad more helpful... Thankfully, no nasty mails yet!

                        I used to be powerseller on ebay and would always be polite and helpful, after all it was the buyers who paid my wage, sadly some arn't . Nice to know in this economic climate and ebay being the way it is they can afford to turn away custom isn't it
