1) Why do I have to register to respond to an AD?

There are many scams out there. Forcing  a responder to register will first of all eliminate many of them who cannot pass the challenge question. Secondly, if you do get a suspicious response, you can contact admin. Since the individual will be registered, we can find out info about him such as location, and help determine if he is legit. All transactions, however, are the sole responsibility of the lister & listee. NATCOA accepts no liability for someone being scammed. We do however try to help our sellers avoid them to the best of our ability.

2) Why can't I upload more photo's?

Storage space costs us money, and this is a free service. You can easily download the free software, Faststone, which will reduce most photos to less than 100K in size with little loss in quality. This will enable you to upload about 5-10 photos. Your other option is to link to them externally by adding them in the main description box. Faststone is a very useful program to have, anyway. if you really need more space on a particular ad, you can contact Paul . I may approve more on an individual basis.

To use Faststone effectively, load the problem and click "Use Advanced Options". Click "Resize" and select 640 x 480. This will reduce most photos to less than 100K in size.

3) I can't see anywhere for a buyer to contact me in my Ad. What Gives?

You can't, but anyone else can as long as they are registered. You really don't want to contact yourself do you? Others will see a link. When they respond it will send you a private message which is indicated by a Red number in the envelope icon near the upper right. You will also receive an email notification.

Important: If you have an email filtering service, you must set it to allow emails from forum@natcoa.com. This is the email notifications of responses are mailed from.

4) How long does my ad appear for and can I renew it? How do I renew?

120 days, and yes, you can renew it.

You cannot renew an ad until it has expired. It is up to you to monitor the days left. After expiry, the ad is still visible for 30 more days. Go into your account on the forum (where the ad is displayed). At the upper right you will see your "handle" with a drop down arrow, click the arrow and select "manage classifieds. If it is within 30 days of having expired, you will see your ad under active ads with a renew button to the right.

You may renew up to 4 times without re-posting.
