Manhattan group-specific rules

Hi folks,

Welcome to the Manhattan-only group. This group is ONLY for listing items that can be picked up on the island of Manhattan. Please include a location that is a neighborhood or zip code rather than just “Manhattan”, unless it’s a Wanted and you’re saying you’ll go anywhere in Manhattan to pick it up.

Do not list “NYC” – even for Wanteds– as this is not the 5-borough group. (This group’s official name is “ManhattanNYC” because there was already a Manhattan, Kansas group, not because we cover all of NYC.)

Any posts with locations outside of Manhattan (including “NYC”) will be deleted and the member removed automatically. (Why? Please see the “Manhattan ONLY” Admin.)

Other than the Freecycle-wide restrictions on things like porn and drugs, which are listed in the Etiquette email you received on joining, we're going to ask that Wanteds be held down to ONE post per day, though you may include more than one item in that post. As per the general rules, please don't ask for the SAME item more than once a month.

Also, please not the default settings for email is "only Admins from moderators" so if you find you aren't getting the posts in your inbox you'll have to change that setting. But we're hoping most of you will use the MyFreecycle interface instead as it removes an Offer once Taken, and reduces the number of too-late responses and Offerer gets. Not to mention keeping your own inbox clear, and saving time by only seeing offers that are still likely available.

Thanks all!
