HOW TO USE MY FREECYCLE
HOW TO USE MY FREECYCLE
HOW TO POST AN OFFER OR A WANTED: Log into my.freecycle.org, click on "Post to this group" and use the message maker. Click on "Make the Post" and your message will be posted. If you are posting an OFFER and wish to include a photo there will be a new box open at the bottom of the message maker. Use the "Browse" button to choose the photo from your computer that you want to upload.
For your safety, you may not include your telephone number, email address or home address. Your email is protected, and only your username is displayed. This prevents phishing and you being targeted for spam. Click on "Make the post."
Also, please note that cross posting (sending the same message to several groups) is prohibited.
HOW TO READ AND REPLY TO OFFER AND WANTED POSTS:
Log into My Freecycle and click on "View the Posts." ADMINs are posted at the top of the message list. ADMINs include information of interest to the entire group. You can select to read OFFERs only, WANTEDs only, or all posts. If you are interested in an item listed, click on the item link. A new page will open with a "Reply to this post" box. Enter your message. Remember to click on "Send Message."
HOW TO LET PEOPLE KNOW YOUR ITEM HAS BEEN TAKEN, OR YOU HAVE RECEIVEDTHE ITEM YOU WANTED:
Log into my.freecycle.org and click on the green My Posts tab. When the page opens, click on the button on the right side, "Manage." Click on "Mark as Taken and remove" or "Mark as Received and remove" to send a message to the group that you are no longer looking for the item. By clicking on either of these, your original message will "automatically" be removed. If you have posted an item by mistake, you can delete it using the same process. Click on either Cancel and/or Remove. Please do not remove the post until the item has actually been picked up to avoid having to re-post. You can also log in and go to http://my.freecycle.org/home/posts: the MY POSTS page shortcut.
HOW TO ORGANIZE THE E-MAILS YOU RECEIVE:
Your group has a default setting for email delivery. When you join the group, your account will automatically be set for that preference. For example, if the group default is set to receive individual emails, you will begin receiving copies of every post sent to the Group in your email box. You can reset your personal email delivery preferences by signing in to my.freecycle.org and then click on "Change settings." There is an Email preference section with a dropdown box. In the drop down list, select your email delivery option. Then click on the green button, "Change email preference." Please note if you choose to receive no emails, you will still receive special notices from the moderators.
HOW TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, E-MAIL ADDRESS or DELETE YOUR My Freecycle ACCOUNT ENTIRELY:
Log into my.freecycle.org and click on the green tab, "My Info." Click on the appropriate green button and make the changes. Remember to click on the prompt to save your changes. If you click on the "Delete my Account" button, you will no longer be a member of the My Freecycle site. This action will completely remove your from our system. This is NOT the same as removing yourself from a group. If you accidentally delete your account, but wish to still belong to a local group, you must sign up with a new account.
HOW TO REACH THE MODERATOR:
If you have a question, problem or complaint, click on "Contact the ModTeam." A message box will open. Type in your message and click on "Send message."
