What are the types of prefixes?

Prefixes:
  1. For Sale - Items for sale
  2. Wanted - Poster is looking to trade or buy a particular time
  3. Sold - Sale complete. Please do not delete items. Mark them as sold.
  4. Found - Item found at a launch or elsewhere.
  5. Free! - Free or free for the cost of postage.
  6. Trade - Items available for trade
  7. XX - Anything that does not fit into the above categories.
Below is an image of the prefix list.

How do I add a prefix?
It is as easy as the click of a button. In fact, the forum will not let you post to the yard sale without choosing a prefix.

  1. Step 1: click on the word prefix before the thread title block.yard sale 1.png
  2. Step 2: Click on the prefix you want.yard sale choose prefix.png
  3. Type your title, text, and images. You are done.

Can I filter for only a particular prefix?
Absolutely! This filter is very easy. In the main list of threads, click on the prefix you want to see. For example, if you click on "For Sale", it will show you all items for sale.

For example, if you click on "For Sale", you will filter to just show the threads that have active things for sale. See below for an example.

A filtered example is below and it only has items actively for sale.
