Understanding why your posts to group may be getting rejected

Here are the top reasons for post rejections. I hope it will help to remind you to avoid them, so your post makes it onto the board the first time you send it! (The reason for rejection follows in parens.) You are always welcome to re-submit your post after changing its content.

  1. Your reply came back to the board queue. (remember to reply directly to the person who posted)
  2. Incomplete subject line and/or city in Marin missing. (because Offer/Wanted/Taken/Received is missing in subject line)
  3. Come & get it offers with addresses are not allowed on this board. (because address is in post)
  4. Please resubmit your post with a subject line that conforms to group rules. (because subject line is odd or not appropriate)
  5. Asking to borrow is not allowed on the board. (because reference to returning an item to original poster after use is in post; okay to say you’ll be freecycle it after use)
  6. Posting a dollar value on your item is not allowed unless it is clear you are giving it for FREE. (because it creates confusion)

Hopefully seeing this list will be a good reminder for all to check their message before submitting.

Also, please remember to continue making donations to the various county nonprofits that depend on the influx of donations in the form of goods which they disperse to others, or sell to support their agency efforts. Our group is but one “spoke” in the wheel of recycling in our county.
