I'm at a loss as to what I'm doing wrong with posting an advert. I've read and re-read their T's & C's and Posting Rules and tried several times. I do realise where I went wrong the first few times but although they send me an acknowledgement email, they always remove the advert and I get no feedback as to the reason.

Has anyone else had difficulty please? I'm not trying to sell anything forbidden by them. I've checked out similar adverts by others and theirs are online ok.

    Their filter picks up on keywords and phrases and also links to other websites.

    Even common phrases can be rejected.

    Strip the advert right back to just a descriptive one liner and try that.

    Thanks Paul, I've tried that. It's tickets I can't use, no place names,dates or prices in title. Filled in price wanted and face value (cheaper than face value) & didn't list phone or email address in description which is what gumtree stated.

    Frustrating to say the least! Will have to ask a teenager!

    Try not putting a photo on - if you havent done so already.

    I had one where it didnt like the photo

    Or it could have just decided you're a troublemaker and blocked you! :D
