My $0.02 ....Rules are clear. First "I'll take it" in the thread gets the part. Rules also state "no PM sales."

Miller could have stated something to the effect "I'll take it, assuming shipping is less than $200." Simply asking questions or stating a PM was sent doesn't guarantee your spot in line, IMO.

As stated in the Buying and Selling Code of Conduct, "All sales must be posted in thread, a reply stating who is in line is also suggested. Accepting sales via Private Messages will result in confusion within the thread and is strictly prohibited." This is to avoid members sending PMs out and purchasing items without any track record of sales to keep things straight. There is that 'grey area' of "all sales must be posted in thread." While over time, the general rule of thumb has been for the buyer to post some commitment within the thread stating that he/she will take the item, and the seller would provide a list of who's in line and in what order. Some have interpreted a "PM on the way/sent" as an adequate interest or intent to buy, but many do not...both sellers and buyers alike. I'm sure you can see where this can get convoluted quickly. However, when it comes down to the end, it is ultimately the seller's choice in the final choice of the sale.

Keep this in mind. PMs are ok, but must be in the sale thread and should have some indication of intent so the remaining potential buyers don't get confused or feel like they've been passed over. Food for thought. Sending a PM only with no post in the thread is a clear violation of the Code of Conduct.

What's most important is that we use this as a good example of why stating intent within the thread and providing a list of who's inline is best practice for all parties.

Re: 1972 Truck Bucket Seats

I would suggest the seller and buyer read the Forum rules. This method of buying and selling will cause you a lot of problem in the long run.

As mentioned ... if you plan on selling more parts on this forum it might be wise to read the rules and follow them. Also no pm sales.

Thanks for keeping with the rules.
