Forum rules
1. Keep it clean.
2. Keep the discussion civil.
3. Name calling is not allowed.

Politics and religion are two topics that tend to degenerate into a violation of one of the three simple rules above.

The mods and the site admin reserve the right to "lock" or "delete" any discussion that in our opinion, is "heading in the wrong direction."

MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

Is it just me, or have you noticed that there seem to be more and more "Where can I find a <insert rare and highy-sought-after tractor, part, or implement here>?" posts on the various tractor forums lately?

It's against the rules on most boards, though moderators tend to let it slide. There's a place to post wanted ads on most boards for that sort of thing, and just because you struck out there doesn't mean you get to thumb your nose at the board's rules that the rest of us respect and abide by...

Drives me up a wall.

Half the time I figure they know exactly how to go about getting what they want, but they are doing it in the hopes someone will take pity on them and either give it to them free, or cut them a charity deal.

Okay, they're taking a shot in the dark hoping to get lucky. You've got to give them a *little* credit. If I did it, even incognito, they'd be all over me like flies on a fresh prairie muffin for breakin' the rules, though.

yup....and gotta the some of the same ones who "know what you have is worth something" and won't let on. One of my favorite scams from out here was when a guy was looking for some cultivators and he told the seller that his set was worthless because it was missing a rare lift arm....the lift arm he was referring to as rare was one that was the same as one from a 144 set.

Not saying that it's right to do it, if the rules are against it, but some times it's done because a lot more people will see it on, say, the " Repair forum". Some one may have the part that they would sell but aren't really into selling parts so they don't look at the " Parts Wanted forum".

I obey the rules here. It was hard for a while, when the new rules were put in place.

I do agree with Birddog, that a bunch of folks are barn sour, and just go to the same area of the site all the time. They miss some of the need part/have part/where do Y'all get the part discussions. Then they need to ask the same question again.

It is a fact, that some folks need to be reminded of the stuff they need also.

I use to take lots and lots of stuff to cubfests, just in case someone needed something. And each and every time, someone did. It is too hard to load, haul, unload, haul, unload and put away the heavy stuff, and there is just so much room for the little stuff.

But if folks would say ahead of time what they did need, it could be there.

Some people are just plain self centered , in their way of thinking they have done no wrong. I have been looking for a few post to get moved .
