Hi folks, We're currently all living through something that's previously unheard of in anyone's lifetime. A pandemic and shut-down of many, many countries to prevent the spread of this nasty novel coronavirus. Last night the PM told us all to stay home for all but essential reasons that I won't bore you with now. If you're in the UK and haven't seen it already, I suggest you do, as I'm sure it won't be long before they're dishing out fines for people not doing as they're told. Governments like money, and for once I agree with them if it discourages people from going out. With this in mind, it's going to be difficult for anyone sending parcels to each other, and to discourage you from doing so we've made the Buy, Sell and Trade forums read-only as a temporary measure, as you're going to find it increasingly difficult to ship things, especially if you're using the Royal Mail where it's normal to front-up to the post office. It's also unwise to go out for non-essential trips, as well as likely to get you fined by the rozzers if they stop you with a bunch of parcels in the back. Do the sensible thing and stay home, and don't worry about trading on the forum until things settle down. If you're in the middle of a trade, please decide between you what is best and safest to do, and don't feel obliged to go out and risk infection. As long as you communicate with your buyer or seller, there should be no problems with waiting, as if we're honest we've all got plenty to go at in the stash We've not hidden the area to facilitate finishing off trades, but please resist the urge to engage in new trades until things are back to normal. Lastly, we'd like to wish you all well. Stay indoors and don't think about The Event. Oh no, hang on - wrong event. Don't be silly and go out into the company of people that aren't from your household, just stay at home and wait until the danger is past. We want you all to come out the other side of it, and the best way of achieving that is to self isolate. Rigorously. Please.
