Hi, I tried posting a Want Add a recently. A message popped up and said something about "We cannot post your add immediately... please don't repost."  I have yet to see it.  Did I do something wrong?

    There is an extensive word filter that probably stopped your ad from posting immediately. Without knowing what was in the ad, I couldn't really tell you what the problem the problem was. If you want to send me a PM with all the contact info and the body of the ad, I can take a look and advise.

    I'll try it again, maybe change wording. If it doesn't work, I'll PM you. Thanks.

    I think I figured it out, buy actually reading the classified rules! It's not vintage, in terms of 25 years older than present.
    I posted "1999" and maybe that was the problem.  If you have any recommendations on who to contact for a replacement muffler for a 1999 Ski Doo Formula 380 S, that would be great.  My nephew ran into a tree and fortunately only the sled was damages. I got other parts from Art's in WI and Dennis Kirk. Muffler has a kink that I assume will reduce performance. There have to be a ton of used mufflers out there.

    There are a couple of sister sites that might be additional places to post.


    DooTalk.com and Snowmobile.com

    Maybe a dumb question but what about asking if anyone has one on the Classic sled forum here?

    Asking to purchase items in the forum is against the rules at the moment. If the classifieds gets moved into the forum it would probably be OK.
