ALL POSTINGS SHOULD BE MADE USING THE SITE!

**TO SEND A TAKEN/RECEIVED MESSAGE**

My Freecycle was designed so that when a Taken message is sent to the board, the original Offer is automatically removed from the board. This way, you can visit the site and quickly see what OFFERs and WANTEDs are open without having to search through the board for a Taken message.

If you have an open Offer or Wanted on the board, and need to mark it as Taken or Received:

1) Login to MY.FREECYCLE.ORG 2) Click on MY POSTS. 3) To the left you will see your open posts, with a button marked MANAGE, click this and you will see two options available for each post: MARK AS TAKEN/RECEIVED or REMOVE FROM MY FREECYCLE. 4) Choose MARK AS TAKEN (Or RECEIVED if it is a Wanted). 5) You will be brought to a new screen that has a default Taken message. You can edit this message if you choose. If you do not, simply click SEND TAKEN message. 6) Your Offer/Wanted will then be removed from the board.

Those who choose to receive emails will also receive an email notification with your Taken/Received message.

**TO POST A PHOTO WITH YOUR OFFER. **

1) Login to MY.FREECYCLE.ORG and click on the MY POSTS tab. 2) Click MAKE A NEW POST and use the drop down menu to choose OFFER. 3) If the group you belong to allows pictures to be posted, the option will appear at the end of the form. 4) Click BROWSE to choose a photo on your computer. 5) Click MAKE THE POST after adding the photo.
