Why don't you use the 'E' -place for selling this kind of stuff. ThereminWorld is not about anything but Theremins.

Tesla, nobody complained when I was selling synths! This is a forum for music makers, granted a certain kind of music maker, but I would have thought they'd be interested in music equipment.

If only I could afford that CS-15, and it was in the UK. Drool.

I think a little side-trip down analog lane once in a while is acceptable.

Good luck on selling the gear.

I wish I could help you with the photo theremin.

O.K., sell away. But there is an old saying: "Give an inch and they will take a mile."
Selling at ThereminWorld could become a place for hawkers of all sorts of great equipment that Thereminists, (just by their very nature), would lust to buy, but what does the website gain in recompense?
At least at "E"-place the website benefits.
This website is a beautiful open forum with imaginative and talented people sharing their insights to playing, making and fixing of an obscure instrument. A website that only gains income,(if any), from those few manufacturers of the Theremin.
I think, if a member wishes to sell their equipment in this venue, they should give the ThereminWorld website a percentage. It is only fair to ThereminWorld's chief benefactor: Jason.
Sorry, just my thoughts...

I'm in favour of any idea that recompenses Jason for all the work he puts into TW, so by all means stick a suggestion in the suggestion box - but I don't think that one would fly.

The traditional way for charging small ads is a fixed fee per insertion, rather than a percentage - and its easy enough done - moderated postings and a paypal button would do the trick, but moderating would exact a cost on Jason's time, and that has to be considered too.

Or more likely it would kill the forum stone dead. If you gotta pay, might as well go to eBay.

The present unmoderated, free scheme seems to be working just fine. It provides a service for forum members without swamping the site and every visit to it is another opportunity for someone to click on the various adverts that go some way to funding the site. And if they feel TW has provided a useful service, there is the "make a donation" button on the front page.

Leaving aside the totally unreasonable nature of your objection, I'd like to take a moment over this:

[i]I think, if a member wishes to sell their equipment in this venue, they should give the ThereminWorld website a percentage.[/i]

My rebuttal is laughter, not a scornful chuckle or a snicker of glee, but that of a bronchially disadvantaged hyena, who whilst caught in the throes of mad, throttling hilarity, is nevertheless suffering permanent scarring to his epiglottis, choking small chunks of blood and vomit onto the floor.

It is my fervent hope that this kind of laugher is not heard by the ears, but instead creeps gradually through the many layers subconscious, rising to the forefront like a thick fog, obscuring all thought and rendering the luckless recipient truly insane.

[i]Now.[/i] I believe this poor sod wants to sell some gear.
