Group Description

The purpose of this exchange is to cultivate a local and convenient way for people in the Olney/Brookevlle area to share information and buy & sell goods and services.

Posting tips:

1) Leave your politics and your religion at the door. In particular, no endorsements.

2) Keep your postings brief and to the point.

3) When looking for particular advice, search the messages posted to date or go to the OBX home page and search the files for particular recommendations - this avoids duplicate* postings.
*(When responding to a hot topic that already has multiple responses, please refrain from the 'me too' type addition. This gets stale quickly.)

4) The default is set so that your reply goes only to the original poster. An optional "reply all" button is on each post.

5) You can set your own preferences for how you would like people to see your user info and how often you would like to see postings.

6) If you have more than one item to sell or donate, please list them ALL in one posting. DON'T send off multiple postings of one item in each.

7) NOTE TO BUSINESSES and ORGANIZATIONS - we do want to hear from you but please adhere to "soft advertising" by posting brief offerings and opportunities NO MORE THAN ONCE PER MONTH. If you have an e-newsletter, please provide the group with a link to your newsletter. Do not add the OBX to your distribution list. Include your NAME and LOCATION, so everyone knows who you are. Businesses advertising here must be fully accountable. The ID and accountability standards apply to everyone.

Rules: No prolonged complaining, ranting, or venting. Please remember this is freedom of speech at its best to almost 4900 members. Choose Civility and Play Nice or you will be asked to leave the sandbox.

Happy Posting!
