Re: *LOOKIE* A FS0T Checklist & Helpful Hints *LOOKIE*

Great Info!

Started CD'ing Dec '08 as well


I like to know how long the dipe has been used (in terms of months or babies used on). Also, if it was purchased new or used by seller.

Re: *LOOKIE* A FS0T Checklist & Helpful Hints *LOOKIE*

One of the things I hate is HUGE lots of a wide variety of stuff all in one post. I hate having to scroll, scroll, scroll, and wait for all those pics to load and searching for the wool that I want when there are prefolds, fitteds, covers, etc. all together.

So my is, if it's a large lot of different items, please make multiple threads under the appropriate heading. i.e. only wool together under wool, a new prefold thread under prefolds, etc. The only exception that's okay with me is a set. For example a matching t-shirt, diaper, and wool all sold as a set. In that case, make a separate one for that.

And thanks OP for all the work in your post. I think some people CDing for a long time (like me) forget what it's like to be a newbie and that some things can't be taken for granted.

Hi! You're welcome!

I just wanted to let you know that actually it is against DS rules to have more than one post in each forum. I did just that the first time I listed stuff. I had like 10 threads in "covers" and a Mod promptly PMed me and told me I had 24 hours to combine them. Soooooooo, that explains the huge lots for ya!

Good to know info here. Glad it was made. My pet peeve is bad titles, too. Ugh. Please move sold items out & put sizes & gender in titles. I judge a thread by it's title. Thanks.

Re: *LOOKIE* A FS0T Checklist & Helpful Hints *LOOKIE*

WOW, thanks so much for the great ideas and advice. I am brand new to DS and honestly have been fairly confused/overwhelmed until I saw this post. I know a lot of users are experienced with all the nicknames and acronyms (i.e. FB instead of Fuzzi Bunz), but it sure is easier to shop for diapers on here when you're not trying to figure out what things stand for. So again, THANKS for this!

Always ask if they have pets, bought some CDs that still had pet hair in them, plus they smelt like they hadn't been washed. Very good thread.
